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.

The aroma is strong in the citrus. It pours a hazy orange gold with a white head. It definitely has a complex mixture of hops and favorable citrus flavors. It is very smooth to drink with a pack of bitterness that is unique. A mouthful of fruit burst with the hops.

This is what I’d call a starters IPA, it smells fruity and nice, it has a good taste and the palate is fine. It’s just a really easy beer to enjoy, nothing too complicated. Enjoyable!

Botella de 33cl. Cerveza de color naranja nublado que forma una mediana cabeza blanca . El aroma es suave lúpulos florales y cítricas, muy afrutados . El sabor es ligeramente al pino , aunque también hay recuerdos florales y a frutas.

Smmells of exotic fruits, slightly tart but exhilarating roundness. Beautiful golden pulling fisheries reflections. After exotic fruit, notes of jasmine appears. Nice length of mouth, coupled with a slight bitterness

"punk ika" uit de fles, geur dennenappel met mango, en citrusvruchten. Uitnodigend, smaak is alles behalve dat. Van zoet gaat het in ineens naar zuur en dan naar behoorlijk bitter. Geen aanrader maar wel "appart" te noemen

I was surprised to see the new punk is rated higher than the original - just who are these people?? It’s not bad, not by a long way, but it’s a shadow of its former self. the bitterness is gone, the mouthfeel is gone, the big juicy tropical flavour is gone. What’s left is a so-so strong blonde beer, vaguely hoppy, a bit sweet, really now there’s no need for it to be more than about 4.5% for all the flavour it gives

Poured from 11.2 oz from a Trader Joe’s 4 pack, best by 7-2-15. which is a long way off in the future! Cloudy golden with a huge dirty off white head, flowery nose, on the sweet side. Taste is mostly bitter, with a bit of sweetness. Not super fresh, would be curious to see when it was actually bottled, and then TJ’s is not known for proper storage. Medium-light bodied, a bit slick and oily in the mouth. Not too bad, but not as good as I like in my IPA’s.

UPDATED: OCT 21, 2014 Cloudy gold. Fruity hops on the nose. Taste- luscious fruits and light floral hops. Mango, apple and pineapple. Light biscuity malt. Refreshing. Very low hops for an IPA. Surprised how much I liked this. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottled from local supermarket. Clear golden colored, small head. Beautiful hoppy nose, very fruity (tropical), pine. Pretty one-dimensional hopbitter flavor, no malts, hardly any restsugars. When tasted blind i would have probably thought this was a session IPA, it’s very watery and simple.
