2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at Bar Hop, pours clear copper with a medium beige head. Aroma and flavour of dry caramel malt, some tangy apples, and floral hops. Too malty for an IPA. Not good.

Holy WOW, this beer is so good. hoppy, tasty, flavourful.
ABV @ 7.1 makes it a one trick pony, but on a one beer night this is on the "A" list.
Well done Amsterdam

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pretty unidimensional IPA . Fairly well balanced but lacks the hop power of the best in the category. Quite average really.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Stunningly attractive beer. Dark amber body with lasting foamy off white head and nice lacing. Perfect. Aroma is hoppy, I agree with cards04 about watermelon, maybe also cucumber, citrus. Not super bitter but nice citrus taste. Lively palate, lasting taste. Abv well masked. Overall quite a great ipa, as long as you’re not expecting crazy bitterness.

UPDATED: APR 6, 2014 a decent ipa. pours a murky dark orange with white head. aromass of soap, deteregent, and pine needles. Flavours are watermelon at first - then a bitter soapy hop finish. pretty good stuff.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can. Malt and hops on the nose, some light vegetable notes. Fairly malty flavour, hops are light. Some vegetable getting through here too. Not bad, but definitely not my favourite DIPA.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Can. Pours light amber with a fine textured tan head which forms peaks. Aroma is dominated by pungent, spicy-citrusy hops, with some fruity notes, slight pine, a bit of caramel and toast. Really nice. Taste is malty and bready up front, medium body, some hop flavour, and smooth bitterness in the finish.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Canned sample. Hazy copper in colour with medium carbonation. Aromas are of white grapefruit, pine sap, spruce needles, lemon, and a bit of caramel. Pink grapefruit, conifer, and heavy pale malts in the mouth. Balanced and not overly caramel-sweet on the palate, with a good amount of bitterness, but a surprisingly heavy body. Very much in the classic American IPA style. Solid overall.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
2014/02/05 - Pours a clear, orange-amber colour with a frothy, off edited head that lingers and laces nicely. Aroma is floral hops, tropical fruits, citrus, pine and toffee. Taste is pine, citrus, toffee and toasted malt. Nice balance between sweet and bitter. Aftertaste is toasted malts and astringent citrus/pine. Mouthfeel is slightly oily with lively carbonation and a crisp, bitter and drying finish. A descent IPA.
