3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
slightly hazy orange-blond colour, big foamy head, strong hoppy nose showing apricot, cream and grapefruit, creamy mouthfeel, medium to full body, very strong bitterness, dry and long deeply bitter and flowery finish - good but raw and out of balance; no doubt: this beer comes from the USA :-)

Pale golden color. Very nice hop aroma, fruity (grapefruit and abricots), lighlty cheesy, aggressive. Very strong bitterness, fruity (grapefruit, grapes, abricots). Rough, extreme, quite enjoyable. Thank Jens (Ungstrup) for this bottle.

Beautiful golden color, inviting. Aroma of elderberry syrup. Dominant bitterness, but with a balancing sweetness; the hop aroma opens up in the mouth; persistent.

Thanks to Ernest for this one! Deep gold with a hint of orange in appearance, decent head. Grapefruit aroma from a distance, but when came in closer, a floral and earthy component came through. Very nice. Biscuit malt character, more than I was expecting, combine with herbs and earth, with faint grapefruit, for a hoppy, excellent brew. Reminds me a bit of the Legend Golden IPA, but frankly better.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: MAR 14, 2005 Pours medium/thin white head with a amber color and a good deal of lacing. Sweet and hoppy is how it smells, not that complex but nice smelling. Tastes mildly hoppy with a sweet and piney taste to it. Pretty light for an IPA but nice tasting. Nothing outstanding with the palate slightly coats and a fairly short aftertaste goes with the beer.

Pour is a nice honey color with no head. Aroma is hops with a nice malt backbone. Flavor is super hoppy. Almost if not more hoppy than the IIPA i had before. Lots of pine and citrus to go around in this brew. If your a hop head you need to get this brew ASAP!
