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.

reebtogi (4039) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 8, 2011
330ml bottle pours a golden orangeish color with a robust white head with good duration leaving some pleasant lacing on the glass. Aroma is dominated by citrus and earthy notes. Taste is mostly citrus and earthy hop bitterness balanced nicely with some malty sweetness. Medium bodied and nicely carbonated this beer has a pleasant mouthfeel. Very enjoyable tasting experience.

shoulderbroken (1849) - Tokyo, JAPAN - NOV 18, 2011
Draught at Naka Meguro taproom. Bright orange with a small bubbly beige off-white head. Slightly cloudy. Aroma fruity, bit orange zest, but more hoppy citrus, cat pee. Taste is cat pee bitter with long bitter finish. Sweet boozy elements. Gets sweeter still towards the end, but still nice and fruity.

hopscotch (8781) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - NOV 11, 2011
Bottle… Murky caramel-colored ale with a small, creamy, off-white head. Fantastic retention. The bouquet is a marriage of caramel and tropical fruits. Full-bodied with kicked-back carbonation. The flavor provides lots of caramel with only moderate, tannic bitterness. Some decent acidity and bitterness in the finish. I let this one sit too long in the beer fridge. Should have drank it fresh. Still, pretty darned good stuff. Bottle courtesy of Plovmand!

tonycaviar (76) - HUNGARY - OCT 29, 2011
A sörnek szűrt rezes színe van, lassan omló, óriás paplanhabbal rendelkezik, kicsit messze esett az IPAk központi fájától – ködös narancsszínűnek kellene lennie. Ráadásul az illatában sem érezni azt a rámenős komlósságot, amit elvárhatnánk. Helyette sütis, malátás illattal indít. Amibe azért vegyül a mélyből némi halvány sajtos erjedés és egy nagyon távoli fokhagymás komlóillat. Az íze elsőre boros, kakaós, tejes, és igen erősen pörkölt. Ha nem tudom, hogy IPA, azt hiszem, hogy valami aszaltszilvás, kávés dologgá nemesedő barnasört tartok a számban. Nem így történik. Végül brutál keserű, száraz íze lesz, ami csak az éretlen datolya szájcsücsörítően dehidratáló erejéhez fogható. Mindent összevetve elég barátságtalan, szigorú és japánosan fantáziátlan. Mintha a sörfőző nem tudta volna eldönteni, mit akar, minden súlyosságot beletett. Mintha valami japán fazont látnék, aki csillogóra belőtt Elvis-frizurával jeezik a mikrofonba.

altonbrownd (3766) - Brussels, BELGIUM - OCT 5, 2011
Bottle at Beer Temple. Carmel body with a delicate head. Sugary and hoppy nose. Taste is full of caramel, toffee but hops as well. Nice citurs bursts with a bitter finish. Very well done.

Davros (1859) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - SEP 13, 2011
Pours dark amber with a large head. Nose shows fruity hops with notes of passion-fruit, peach and pine. Also lots of sweet caramel underneath. Similar flavours, the big surprise though is the toasty and bready malt characters. The hops aren’t quite as complex as the nose suggests, mainly showing pine characters. Carbonation is pretty full on, could be lower.

thewolf (11101) - Kolding, DENMARK - SEP 9, 2011
Bottle, bought @ Vinens Verden, Odense.
Hazy orange amber with a big, lovely, frothy, off-white head with nice duration. Grassy and peachy aroma, some earthy tones, light caramel and honey sweetness. Bit of strawberry. Medium, prickly carbonation, fine dry and light creamy palate. Flavour is caramelly sweet at the centre with some notes of candied oranges and strawberries. Fairly bitter around it,but not that terribly much hops flavour. Grassy and peachy again in the finish. Okay.

Koelschtrinker (9999) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - SEP 8, 2011
Herber, süß hopfiger Antrunk mit grasigen, leider auch wässrigen Noten. Der Hopfen wächst leicht, wichtiger ist aber, dass es im Mittelteil breiter wirkt. Trocken, schokoladenmalzig zum Schluss. Ein durchaus trinkbares, leider aber zu trockenes IPA. Teilwese etwas schwach. 10/9/8/9/11/9

CapFlu (4459) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 4, 2011
(360ml bottle) Purchased at Cook St Liquors. Pours a huge white head atop a clouded orange body. Nose is very green I’m it’s hoppiness. Flavor bites with tang and rests with a toasty malted finish. Good ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
