A beer of inherent contradiction. This heavy weight of the beer world is strikingly delicate with a white gold appearance. The light fruity aroma dominates the initial confrontation; lychee, kiwi and passionfruit all prevail with subtle nuances of cherry and strawberry. Don’t be fooled however by this smooth medium bodied ale. As it trickles down your throat as this wolf in sheep’s clothing begins to grow teeth. The bite comes as the bitterness builds and endures no matter how hard the malty sweetness of the alcohol tries to tame this ferocious beast.

NOTE: The recipe was changed at the end of 2009, and this version is no longer made, if you have a bottle with a BBD after 1.1.12, you should go to the "Punk IPA (5.4%)" version.

Westkyoto77 (443) - Kyoto, JAPAN - APR 19, 2014
Draught at Trattoria 77 in Takamatsu. Mellow dark gold, broken up white head. Citrusy nose. Fruits flavours are done very nicely, blend beautifully with some malty richness. Touch of spice in the fizzy mouthfeel, but altogether quite smooth. Really like this- getting into IPAs more and more these days.

hopmelt (106) - Painesville TWP, Ohio, USA - MAR 29, 2014
Pours mostly clear, medium golden slight thin of white head. Aroma citrus, floral hops, bready, caramel malt, very slight roast. Taste bitter floral citrus, nice bready carmel sweetness mid mouth, bit fruity, grassy finish. Mouthfeel and carbonation medium, bit of hop bite, finish on the dry side. Overall very tasty and balanced ipa, to high abv to be a session beer, but very drinkable.

Delicious aroma, full of dry hops and ripe fruit, light mouth feel, and great dry finish kick make it extremely easy drinking.

M_Sack (282) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAR 15, 2014
Bottle. Hazy orangey/amber. Citrus aromas, along with pineapple and a touch of pine and malt. Grapefruit, lemon, pineapple and pine flavours with a well integrated malt background. Mid level, but long lasting bitterness. An enjoyable ipa which doesn't suck all the moisture from your mouth with cloying bitterness but makes you want to have another sip. Just my style.

Ins Glas ergießt sich ein orangegoldenes Bier mit geringer Schaumkrone. Geruch intensiv malzig, fruchtig herb. Geschmack sehr mild fruchtig bitter nach exotischen Früchten.

Lovely aroma. A little alcoholic but not bad for 6%. Very round palate, specially for an IPA.
