Light amber color, white head. Aroma is of floral hops, some underlying malt. Flavor is a nice balance of malt with a good dose of hops. Medium body. Not bad.

Sampled from bottle at Danish Beer Festival 2004 (#32).
Yellow coloured with a fine head. Nice and fresh aroma with lots of hops and some fruit and flower tones. Flavor is dry and bitter hoppy. A really nice and tasty IPA!

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: OCT 5, 2004 Bottled @ DBF2004: Golden coloured. Off white head. Toothpaste and hops in the aroma. Hops, some fruits and malts in the flavour. Not overly hopped but balanced and pleasant. Nice bitterness in the end.
Rerate 3,5 originally: Have to raise the aroma and palate by 1. The overall impression is raised accordingly. The beer is a bit more hopped than originally sensed. Has a nice lasting on the palate and is very good with food.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle, 2 months before expiration. Had I tasted this one blind I would have suggested it was British. Nice hopping with EKGs, fuggles (Williamette) and cascades, estery and alcohol, hops, malt and caramel. The fruity esters and sweet malt hang around in the aftertaste. A quality IPA that is well balanced and does not fall into the "I have more hops than you" or "blow them away with cascades" traps which many brewers seem to have fallen. This is on my shopping list next time I’m over at the store.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bring from Brooklyn, I always want to like their beer. Didn’t like this. Amber with white head. Aroma was floral and citrus. Thin body. Flavor was so-so. Not much better than a macrobrewery lager.

(Draught) Pours a lasting, white head with a clear, golden body. Mildly hopped nose anf flavour. Boring for those of us that have been spoiled with the high-hopped and super-C IPAs.
