UPDATED: FEB 26, 2012 Re-rate 2/22/12: Bottle sample at a tasting at Dagan’s place. Thanks Dagan. Almost clear golden with medium white head. Hoppy aroma with citrus and some tropical fruits notes. Bitter flavor with decent fruity hops. Medium-bodied. Maybe slightly past its prime, but still a good IPA. 7/4/7/3/14=3.5
Bottle sample at a tasting. Huge thanks Ambar for bringing me this bottle from the States! Slightly hazy golden with a white head. Incredible aroma of citrus and tons of fresh tropical fruits. Flavor has a bit of sweetness at first with some malt and then continues bitter and hoppy with tropical fruits, pine needles, and a bit of resin. Medium-bodied. Really good. 9/3/7/4/15=3.8
