COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
It’s not as heavy bodied and malty as many IPA’s, in contrast the palate is more crisp and dry. If you consider yourself a "hop-head" you owe it to yourself to grab this beer.

BOD 01/11/16. Pours a medium amber that is quite hazy and has a tremendous amount of suspended matter in addition to precipitates. This beer is unfiltered, so this is not a flaw. Outstanding head volume, world class lacing and quite outstanding retention. Outstanding, but a rather light, nose of floral and mild citrus over biscuit and caramel. Light body with a smoothness that is slightly more than that of water. World class carbonation with a nice effervescent middle and a finely bubbled prickly finish. The light body and strong carbonation really make the flavors pop. The flavor profile is very good. It begins with a blended hop flavor (floral, light citrus) that never separates. The middle brings a moderate rind and earthy bitterness over a not quite balancing sweetness that barely allows caramel detection. The finish is somewhat dry and an orange rind bitterness lingers.

zacgillbanks (4388) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - FEB 13, 2016
Bottle from Rehills, Newcastle. Hazy golden coloured with a very thin white head. It has a warming orange marmalade flavour with spicy fruit, followed by toffee and malt on the smooth finish. Excellent!

KoNrRiI (1182) - Århus, DENMARK - FEB 13, 2016
0.355 bottle. Cloudy, light brown color with an orange hue and a small, off-white head leaving some lacong. Strong aroma of fruits, basement, hops, sugar, some yeasts. Taste is hoppy, bitter, quite fruity again - they offset each other to create a pleasant sensation. A medium body, a creamy texture, and a soft carbonation. Finish is bitterer but otherwise also agreeable. Overall, either I got a bad batch or the beer is just good - nothing amazing by any standard.

Det er en god IPA, med masser af humle, og ikke mindst en frisk smag af noget der minder om træ eller sådan

malvrich (235) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JAN 31, 2016
12 oz. bottle dated 7/21/15 so out of freshness date by a few weeks. Into a pilsner glass. A: Poured hard as it was extremely cold. 1 finger of beige head that retains well to big bubbles after a couple minutes and never completely clears. Hazy dull orange and full of sediment.. S: Light sweet malt nose. and little hops noticed. Maybe a muted spicy hop note. Slight alcohol smell as it warmed. T: Bitter orange taste overshadows the malty sweetness leaving a lightly resinous but clean taste at the finish. Earthy English hop taste with just a touch of orange. M: Medium body with average level of carbonation. Medium length bitter but fairly clean finish. O: This beer gets raves but my bottle is out of date and honestly less than impressive in all areas. Some also may not like the level of shit floating around. I guess it deserves another chance...

A really good ipa. Good and hoppy with a good aroma. Darkhorse makes pretty good beer in general.

Bottle. Pours light amber with thick off white head. Aroma is Floral Citrus and Malt. Taste is sweet malty piney up front with a bitter sweet grapefruit hoppy finish. Not bad but not as good as i remembered it.

Looks great with the white head. Extremely dry and very sharp. I could not find any flavor than hop. Not easy drinking.
