MANY thanks to TasterMike for this one! 22 oz bottle into a pint glass. A: Pours a clear golden amber color. The head is a one finger white shade that’s relatively soapy, yet consistent and dense. Retention is quite solid, and so is the lacing left behind. S: Oh yeah, that’s the stuff. This brings the hops in a fantastic manner - it doesn’t bring any significant biting pine notes, rather it’s mostly stuff like melon, mango, and grapefruit. The bready malts come through enough...and I do mean ’enough’. Which is to say it’s quite faint, but not nonexistent. T: Oh yeah, that’s the-- wait, I wrote that down already. Nevermind, this just works brilliantly. The first few sips have a decent malt backbone sandwiched by a fruity opening and a mildly bitter finish. Right after the swallow, it’s very reminiscent of fruit juice. People who say that an IPA can’t/shouldn’t be balanced need to try this - the hop flavor, the bitterness, and the malt backbone are in perfect harmony with one another. If this uses crystal malt - and I think I can taste hints of its toffee qualities buried in here - I may have to drop my petty grudge towards it, because this beer is fantastic. M: I don’t really notice the low carbonation or medium body too much - it’s so dry (in all the right ways) that it still goes down with superb ease. Malt sweetness builds very slightly on the aftertaste, but it’s not bothersome by any means. O: Holy frig, this is like Sculpin on steroids. Ergo, it’s now in my top 5 list for IPAs. This is the kind of beer that makes me want to move to San Diego just so I can consume this like water.

17/20 IPA that has great depth of flavour, nice fresh taste, just the right level of bitterness, 7%. Probably about as good as an IPA can get ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: SEP 24, 2016 I was pleased to see this at my neighborhood card party, thanks to my neighbor. But I found this to be a hopmonster. Big pine and grapefruit, and initially welcoming but in the end I couldn?t get what i want. Bottle.

Vignale (3323) - Malmö, SWEDEN - SEP 16, 2016
Flaska från Boxbeer. Bärnstensfärgad, aningen disig med något av det tjockaste och krämigaste skum jag sett. Fin humledoft med beskfrisk citrus och tallskott med havrekakor i bakgrunden. Riktigt fin kropp, stor och kakig utan att bli särskilt söt, mjuk och rund, bra humlesmaker även om humlen inte är purfärsk. Riktigt bra balans och smakbild. Riktigt bra.

Bullit (4445) - Burgos, SPAIN - SEP 15, 2016
Bottle from Van Pernis. Copper coloured with a white head. Nose is caramel, pine and grapefruits. Flavour is caramel, grapefruits, bit of pine. Fairly bitter, maybe too bitter and could’ve used more fruityness. Expected a bit more, but still ok.

Sweet pine aroma. Resin and malty sweetness in the aroma. Superbly balanced IPA with lots of engaging flavors. Pine, caramel, green vegetables, lychee, blossom honey. Let’s hear it for well hopped beers!

Bottle shared. Lovely stuff, citrusy hop bong, weed and orange from the hops really shine in there. Solid classic ipa when in good condition.
