Beersiveknown (2765) - NORTHERN IRELAND - MAR 11, 2013
100ml sample from keg at brewpub
Pours hazy dark amber with the herbal noble hop aroma one associates with European hops. Medium body and carbonation and decent bitterness with plenty of piney resin but with malt to balance. An enjoyable IPA Iíd have happily drunk again.

armando629 (2405) - Budapest, HUNGARY - APR 16, 2010
Draught at the brewpub.
Hazy amber appearance with a superb, stable off-white head. Looks like a statue for the beerfoam...Citrussy, grapefruit hop aroma leads the character in the nose with a fine caramel background. Smooth mouthfeel with malt and caramel, honey, cinnamon and vanilla. And of course the powerful but well balanced hoppy flavor with a resiny-citrussy character. Dry, hoppy.fruity aftertaste with grapes and citrusses. Nice!

heavy (2116) - Split, CROATIA - JUL 28, 2012
19/07 On tap at the brewpub. It had hazy orange body with medium sized ocher head. Nice hoppy aroma, strong herbal and grass scents. Touch of biscuit malt becomes fully evident in the flavor. Very nicely balanced between sweet and bitter, this beer was not particularly complex but still very pleasant. Notes of wood, oranges and some toffee yeasts besides everything already mentioned. Medium to full bodied with pleasant, rich finish that ended up exactly where it started - between bitter and sweet. Nice one, almost double IPA!

Pours an amber color with a white head. Aroma is caramel and grapefruit hops. Flavor is lots of caramel and a bitter grapefruit finish.

Capa (1969) - Manama, BAHRAIN - OCT 1, 2013
Copper orange with a white head. Aroma is citrus, orange, sweet fruit, light malts. Flavor is a lot of citrus and oranges, sweet fruity. High on hop flavor but the bitterness is soft. It does finish with a decent bite, though. Nice beer, but could use a better bitter bite overall.

Nickls (1814) - SE DC, Washington DC, USA - MAY 10, 2010
(Old BA rate - tap) Poured with a two-finger thick slightly egg shell colored head...pretty frothy and left chunky lacing throughout the sample. Some bready/sweet maltiness followed by very prominant citric and cedary hop aromas. Powerfully bitter, but balance well. Great hop bitterness comes over the palate first and it is a bit earthy, citruisy, and piney at different points. Very nice complexity for the style. Good malt balance, but doesnít come close to rivaling the hops. Medium MF, muted carbonation and more than coats the palate. Pretty high drinkability, nice flavors along with the high hop factor. A little less aggressive than itís US namesake. Overall, pretty fantastic brew and slightly more complex that Victoryís Hopdevil, though less assertive.

TheCametron (1751) - CZECH REPUBLIC - MAY 11, 2014
Keg at 1516. Pours cloudy Orange Brown with a lasting White head. Very fresh hop flavour. Pine and grapefruit. Thick with lots of residual, bitty hops. Very flavoursome.

UPDATED: FEB 5, 2010 Notes from 7/10/05. Pours a copper-brown color, medium-bodied, with a nice head and lacing left on the glass. Aroma is fruity with a nice hoppiness. Sweet, somewhat spicy flavors with a nice bitter hoppy bite. Finishes a bit bitter and dry. Itís by no means the strongest IPA Iíve had but itís quite solid. Glad I stumbled upon this one.
