This fresh, full flavour natural beer is our tribute to the classic IPAs of yester-year. The post modern twist is the addition of amazing fruity hops giving an explosion of tropical fruit flavours and a sharp bitter finish.

Confesso che non sono assolutamente amante dello stile, e questo la penalizza un bel po’. Ma tutto sommato devo dire che l’ho apprezzata. Colore ambrato leggermente torbido. Schiuma un po’ grossolana e un po’ fine, poco spessa e non molto persistente. L’aroma e’ forte, decisamente luppolato, erbaceo e floreale (giglio e gelsomino). Gradevole e pungente allo stesso tempo, ti invita a berla. In bocca, l’inizio del sorso e’ inaspettatamente mieloso, ma dura poco, per lasciare spazio improvvisamente ad un erbaceo gradevole. Il luppolato non e’ molto pungente, ma avvolge tutta la bocca, lasciando un retrogusto amaro e abbastanza persistente. Corpo leggero, carbonizzazione giusta.

Translucent golden with watery off-white head that dissipates. Amazing aroma - fruity floral hops, spicy malt, honey, caramel, cinnamon, banana, butterscotch, doughy yeast. Tastes very bitter and crisp, slight spice. Nice resinous hoppiness but flavour doesn’t last long. Palate is quite thin with light carbonation. Overall very enjoyable.

joeneugs (3324) - Livermore, California, USA - OCT 9, 2014
12 oz. bottle from Trader Joe’s. Recent shipment. Best by date says 5/16/15. I’m hoping it isn’t a year from bottling… It pours a nice clear golden color with a white head. The aroma is big citrus fruit, toasted and caramel malt. Light florals in the background. Smells a bit aged. The flavor is strong with citrus and floral hops, but it has a flabby maltiness that screams old and stale. It finishes pretty dry and moderately bitter with more stale malt. It’s pretty telling that this beer just arrived in the store and already is suffering from age. I guess I should only buy fresh and local when I’m jonesing for an IPA.

It’s just a beer that everybody should know. Well balanced, aromas on perfect levels, intersting malt, average bitter finish.

Licht oranje-geel bier met een witte schuimkraag. Sterke geur van hop, bloemen en mandarijn. Smaak is bitter, beetje zoetig, hoppig, bloemig, zelfs wat dennen. De afdronk is licht bitterzoet. Lekkere IPA!

A cloudy orange beer with a medium white head. The aroma is soft floral and citrus hops, very fruity. The flavor is slightly piney, floral, and fruity.
