Good gold body with a light head. Pine and hops dominate the aroma. A bit watery in the start but it thickens as you go. Very similar to the Dogfish 90 Minuite IPA and the Stone IPA. Excellent beer.

madsberg (10141) - Søborg, DENMARK - FEB 15, 2006
Bottled (thanks to probiere): Orange coloured. Hazy. Small off white head. Herbal, chocolatish and fruity aroma. Quite powerful. Flavour as well is very full-bodied. Loads of frui, chocolate, herbs and flowers. Light pineneedles and citric. This is good stuff. Has a long and lingering bitterness in the end. Good one.

Pours with a thin offwhite head with a fragrant floral aroma. Nothing but hops with a touch of citrus. Has a nice hoppy bitterness and is a little sour or tart.

22 oz bottle. Pours light opaque with a tiny patchy and bubbly off-white film with spotty lacing. Fragrant floral fruity hop (pine, peach, aprictot) and caramel malt aroma. Moderately bitter, medium acidity and malty (caramel) flavor, yeast (dough) and sour tart pine, citrus rind hop. Medium bodied and dry palate.

Liked this one. Lots of Hops. Well carbonated. Piscator describes it as "Floral" (boy - he is good at describing beer). Wish we could get it here.

Draught. Clear burnt golden color with thin white head. Flowery hop nose and flavor with some sweet malty undertones. Bitter from start to finish.

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - FEB 4, 2006
In the bomber bottle purchased at Roof Bros. in Paducah. Dark gold to light amber in color with a white head. Chunky yeast particles form a near colloidal suspension. Strong hop-floral aroma reminescent of berries. Such a smooth palate! Taste is quite like a chocolate cherry truffle. Floral and fruity and mild, but definitely not over-hopped. Reminds me of a good tea. Smooth and easy to drink.

piscator34 (1948) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - FEB 3, 2006
22oz bottle shared with mnurda (thanks buddy!). Light orange in colour with lots of carbonation and a bit of haze. Very floral aroma with some mild background notes of orange and black pepper. Medium bitterness, with flavor notes of green hop cone, orange, grapefruit, light (yet fairly sweet) malt, and a touch of pine. A bit light bodied for the style and AVB, but would be a good IPA for warmer weather drinking. Solid.

(01.27.06) One pint, 6 fl oz brown bottle purchased from DiCarlo’s, Mundelein, IL. Clear red amber hued ale having a small white head with spare lace. notable white particulates. Soft carbonation. Hoppy sweet malt aroma. Medium bodied that starts with light sweet malt and pronounced hop flavors. Finishes with light hop bitterness. Yum. .. Well balanced with pronounced hop profile. A luscious giant hoppy beer.

22 oz bottle. Thanks Walt. Clear, golden color with nice carbonation. Excellent hop aroma with plenty of citrus. It’s our kind of IPA: plenty or flavor & aroma hops without an intense amount of bittering hops. Simply delicious.
