Bottle. Aroma is intense and smells full of flavor Appearance is a nice golden brown look with light frothy head Taste is incredibly hoppy without being overbearing. An intense explosion of strong flavors with a very pleasant finish. Overall experince is a very strong India Pale Ale taste, tons of hops and a mouth full of flavor. a very good choice when searching amongst India Pale Ale’s

Coppery amber in color with a foamy off white head. Punchy and bitter with a distinct hoppy finish and bitterness that is truly IPA. Strong and full bodied. Worth trying.

SHIG (3635) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - OCT 5, 2011
Bottle: Poured a yellowing orange with off white head. Aroma is citrus and hops. Taste is more of the same with a citrus and hops, but also is balanced with malts.

Bomber much needed after a footbalm. Bottle thanks to Craig. Pours a cloudy orange color with a very large white head. The aroma is sweet oranges and some biscuit. A very nice IPA dominated by sweet marmalade, huge oranges and lemon, very light bitterness. Extremely smooth. Light herbal tea.

callmemickey (3005) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 2, 2011
UPDATED: JUN 9, 2012 A: Cloudy amber-orange body. Large offwhite head. Decent retention and lacing. S: Grapefruit bitterness is dominant. Some floral and pine notes complement it well. Slight malt backbone shines through. Slight alcohol presence as well. T: Massive grapefruit taste. Larger than expected out of a standard IPA. Plenty of pine bitterness. Balanced some by a nice malt backbone that knows its job is to not get in the way of the hops. Nice bitter finish. M: Smooth, medium body. Crisp, dry finish. O: Solid, large IPA. I was impressed and was glad my friends and I were able to grab the last three bottles before they ran out at the unveiling in Philly.

obguthr (4070) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - SEP 30, 2011
Tangerine, pineapple, rosehip, and grapefruit bouquet. Clear amber, medium yellow lacing head. Full bodied and somewhat resinous. Overripe orange and grapefruit peel. Finishes with crackers and grapefruit peel. Hyper-hopped, but the maltiness is big as well. The multiple varieties of hops really come through more in the aroma than the flavor. Good job.

laiti (5953) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 25, 2011
35,5 cl bottle @ Golden Garden, Hiroshima. BBE 01.10.2011 (02/2012 on the sticker). Rated on 13.09.2011
Sweet and sugary aroma with exotic fruits and some resin. Flavour is sweet with fruits and some resin. Lots of hops. Once again too sweet DIPA, but the fruity hops are nice though.
