COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This brew bursts with hop character while still achieving a sublime balance due to a firm, robust malt backbone. It is a cross between an English-style and American-style India Pale Ale that is full-bodied and refreshing all at once.

ClubGonzo (3509) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUN 22, 2012
Bottle, shared with BBGTC. Clear deep golden/copper-hued body, large foamy white head. Aroma is peaches, apricot, caramel malts, hints of honey melon and freshly cut grass. Mild, but very nice. Taste is peaches, apricot, fresh grass. Bitter dry hops in the finish with a medicinal astringency in the finish. A bit too bitter on the aftertaste, otherwise nice. Medium body and carbonation. Starting out very nice, ending up as decent, but not super.

mkel07 (2520) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - JUN 20, 2012
360ml bottle. There is lots of thick fluffy foam in the initial pour and the beer is a robust looking amber copper colour. A little light on aroma for an IPA however the flavour makes up for it with a nice smooth hop flavour and moderate level of bitterness.

kermis (4256) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JUN 19, 2012
Bottle shared. Pours cloudy amber with a big tan head. Aroma of malt, caramel, grain and light hops. Flavour is initially sweet malt dominated, going into a hoppy medium bitterness. Medium bodied with soft carbonation.

deanso (4662) - the Hague, NETHERLANDS - JUN 19, 2012
360ml courtesy of Kermis. Decent creamy white head. Subtle citrus aroma. Hazy amber pour. Pretty nice but after the Heady Top beer it’s hard to taste the bitterness.

Bottle, Brewdog.com shop. Dark orange pour with a biiig sullied white chef’s hat of a head. Aroma was spice, yeast, caramel malts, oak and tropical fruits. Slickish mouthfeel. Peppery fruit, more yeast and earthy hop in the flavour. Lingering bitter finish. Pretty decent stuff.

maekchu (1756) - Hirakata, JAPAN - JUN 2, 2012
Bottle (gift from Neko-chan). Very strong and pleasant hop, thick pine notes, and yeast in the nose. Cloudy orange-amber with a full one-inch rocky head. Very much hop dominant but with a strong malt backbone. Great smooth hoppy aftertaste. Medium-full body, thick and satisfying. Tastes like it’s stronger than 6%. Good stuff.
