Unfortunately, I am disappointed to report I am not a fan of this beer. It has a funky flavour, and not in a good way for me. 7.1% alcohol content is a bonus though! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Crockett (1054) - Southampton,Ontario, Ontario, CANADA - APR 8, 2013
Fairly average stuff. But great by Amsterdam standards. Pours a honey/light orange with just about as much haze as anything else that doesn’t mention that it’s unfiltered. Nose of tropical fruits, lots of piney grassy hops and a bit of alcohol. Flavours are similar and expected. Not sure if it has citra hop in there, but it seems like it. It is in your face then kind of gets a little wishy washy in the finish. Booze is well hidden, until you wake up the next morning.

dinkle50 (1224) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 4, 2013
Reddish cloudy amber pour. Thin head fades quick. Some lace. Grassy dank aroma. Slight poop smell. Medium mouth and slightly astringent. Taste is very bitter. Mostly grassy. This is a palate killer.

samzim (361) - Ontario, CANADA - MAR 16, 2013
Aroma of fresh floral hops, pine, and lettuce. Cloudy amber colour with a minimal head. Medium body that begins with citrus and mild hops, then finishes with a strong bitter hoppy flavour of whole horseradish root. Great beer though a bit overly bitter towards the end.

Pours an amber colour with a small white ring around the glass and a lot of suspended solids in the beer. Aromas of malty sweetness and citrus and pine. Flavours are grapefruit citrus, medium bitterness, a little bit of booze mostly hidden by the bitterness and some malty sweetness.

Reimer96 (1731) - Alberta, CANADA - JAN 22, 2013
Thanks to cfrancis for this beer. Pours an orangish amber with a small brown top. Aroma is a big burst of citrus, pine, grapefruit & sweet pale malts. Taste is grapefruit and citrus hop bitterness up front with a decent amount of sweet malts on the finish. If the balance of malts to hops was a bit better this might be one of the best.

Metalchopz (2837) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 21, 2013
Comes in a 6-pack at the LCBO. An unfiltered IPA... nice ! Now rated at 7.1% ABV. Pours a dark amber colour with an off-white average head and long retention that gives out good dirty lacing. You can also see the tiny particles floating all-around. Piney aromas well-balanced by the fruitiness of the 7 different malts. Very nice drinkability with a not-too thick mouthfeel, and no burning at all. Again, a nice balance between the bitter hops (grapefruit rind) and the malts (caramel, citrus fruits). The mild dryness and strong bitterness from the hop really lingers for a while. Quite a nice offering from Amsterdam and for those who enjoy the hop, but well-blended.

neongolden (1012) - Linköping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 4, 2013
(355ml bottle from the LCBO) Poured murky brownish amber with a big fluffy white head that left a lot of lace, and some floaty bits of sediment below. Aroma is soapy, resiny, woody coniferous hops with some rounded pit-fruit type aromas but not too much citrus. Also a fair bit of caramel malt aroma behind. Flavour is again slightly soapy pine resin and fruit, not a sharp citrus peel bite, meshing reasonably well with the sweet caramel and light biscuit of the malts. Moderate bitterness throughout, finishes fairly dry and hoppy with a hint of malt sweetness. Fairly full mouthfeel, carb a bit lower than average, a bit creamy. A good IPA but something a little weird about the hop profile, a little less refreshing than most.
