Bomber pour to cup. One of my favorite widely available IPAs. Pine, grapefruit. Golden orange, very active tiny bubbles, rich white foam head. Grapefruit pith, sap, nectar, bubbles attack your tongue with a bitterness. The malt blends in just right. Bitter rind finish.

Slightly hazy golden color with off-white head. 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.

One of my favorite IPAs in recent history. It’s somewhere between an IPA and an Imperial IPA. Remarkable drinkable and refreshing for the gravity. It pours a bright. lively color, reminding me of an Albertan canola field. Leave a rich, tall white head. Lacing clings to the glass with every sip. Perfectly blended sweetness and bitterness, which come through from aroma to taste. It’s amazing that the hopiness doesn’t become astringent. The mouthfeel is perfect for this category of beer. I highly recommend this beer.

12 oz bottle pours a golden color with a nice white head. Aromas of citrus, pine, big hop nose. Medium bodied, very nicely balanced, a great IPA ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Quick3Beers (890) - East Falmouth, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 22, 2016
A nice surprise, melon and mango flavor and aroma, big malt backbone with lots of sweetness, almost too much, I’d consider this more of a pale ale. Good beer.

Delicious aroma, pine and pineapple, in this classy beer. Very over the top but in a good way. Taste as usual not on the same level but very good.

Bottle. Pours a nice copper golden with a one finger white head and good lacing. Aroma is sweet berries, floral, and citrus, it smells complex. Tastes overly malted but the flavor itself is a pleasant potpourri. Not the best aftertaste I’ve experienced but the bitterness is there, like a bad cup of coffee. This one tries really hard and initially even gets you a bit excited, but in the end falls short in a couple areas.

mariuspoenari (1426) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - MAY 16, 2016
Bottle sampled at home. Bright orange with a medium-height white head. Mango, papaya, a bit of grapefruit but without the bitterness, herbal hops and a very nice honey backbone. Medium to full bodied, low carbonation and a bitter-sweet aftertaste.
