JorgeLee (1758) - Greater London, - FEB 16, 2013
Bottle from Otto W2. Poured golden with high carbonation and not much head. Obviously very hoppy American IPA, mostly citrus with some grapefruit and a litte bit of pine. Tasty beer, but two detractions. First, the finish was a bit brief - there’s the hint of a nice juicy crunch and then it just kind of ends. Second, for a beer of 7% the body is a bit thin. I mean if this beer was 4-5% I’d be all excited saying it tastes great and is super drinkable; at 7% I can find something more complex. Would love to try on tap.

355ml bottle from Brewdog shop. Small white head, nice lacing. Hazy golden amber body. Nose is pine, citrus, caramel. Flavour is grapefruit, mango, pine, caramel, lasting grassy bitterness. Light carbonation, good mouthfeel, plenty of bite. Cracking IPA.

Ma 1e IPA californienne. Belle couleur. Mouche blanche et bulles moyennes. Nez : agrumes, mangue, résineux. Goûts : superbe entrée en bouche gouleyante, douce et fraîche. Je retrouve les houblons des arômes : citron, pamplemousse, fruits tropicaux. Bel équilibre et amertume moyenne. Top beer.

explosivedog (282) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - SEP 23, 2016
355ml bottle. Aroma is fresh hops and caramel. Flavour is all caramel, with some bubblegum bitterness coming through at the end. Nice, but a little one dimensional.

Ericular (961) - Minnesota, USA - SEP 13, 2016
Pours a nice pale gold with lasting, chunky, off-white head leaving great lacing. Aroma is ripe fruit and juicy citrus. Taste starts with a nice play of bitter and sweet, with balanced citrus hops and caramel malts. Palate is creamy and lip smacking with a substantial body. Finishes balanced as well, with a nice finish of bready malts and bitter citrus. Super good stuff.

SeniorZozo (1265) - Budapest, HUNGARY - SEP 13, 2016
Aroma has slightly dank and citrusy hops with some overripe tropical fruits. Taste starts slightly sweet and fruity with a more bitter finish. Medium body and carbonation. Overall it’s a classic style IPA, balanced and easy to drink.

Grzesiek79 (4000) - Radom, POLAND - SEP 4, 2016
Wg mnie jest to podwojne IPA, hardcorowe wnet. Piana srednia ale trwala do konca oblepiajac szklo. Zapach fenomenalny cytrusy, zapach miodu wielokwiatowego, swiezych drozdzowych wypiekow. Smak chmielny, oleisty, grejfruty, biszkopty, melasa. Wyglad pomaranczowy, srednio metny. Slodowe i chmielowe. Bardzo konkretne i wyraziste, alkohol spory ale zupelnie niewyczuwalny zarowno w aromacie jak i w smaku. Porzadne IPA polecam
