bunrt orange on color, hazy appearance. Sweet, thick mouth feel, with a nice hoppy burn at the front end. Slightly citrus in flavored, at touch of corriander spicyness. pairs well with nutty cheeses and curries.

Thick orange brown pour with very thick, dense white IPA head. Soapy hops aroma that is a bit too light for me. Flavor is okay - it doesn’t just jump out. Citris lemon and lemon rind are present and a bit annoying after a while. Overall, average for me.

Cloudy dark bronze color full of hops. Wonderful hoppy flavor. Slight citrus kick. The double is much better though.

Pours a dark gold in color with no head at all. Plenty of chunky particles floating throughout this beer.
Smell is wonderful and lightly hopped. This tastes good! Very well balanced and almost the perfect amount of hoppy bitterness. If I had a home draft setup, this could easily be put on without a fear of not enjoying all of it. A little thin on the mouthfeel, but oh so enjoyable. This brewery is absolutely wonderful. Must try more of their stuff.

Hoppy, very plesant, I’ve had many bottels however that had substantial sediment leading to a cloudy appearance when poured. I have never noticed a ill effect on the taste coming from the sediment. Recommend strongly!

this beer is great on either end, but not in the middle. the hop aroma is fantastic, and the bitter hoppy aftertaste is wonderful. in between is a weak, watery flavorless beer, full of suspended yeast, with no real defining character.

WOW!! I really appreicate this brew! Never heard of the Dark Horse brewing company, but I appericate good IPA’s, so I decided to try one out. And they did a great job. Wonderful hoppy flavor throughout, pours great, with a distinct head. Has a darker tan colour to this, this is my first beer from this company and I think I’ll try the rest of their brews also. Recommended for hoppy fans! Great beer
