Nice darker color for an IPA, lots of hops and floral notes in the nose. Taste matches with a good bitter bite all across. The finish is a bit sweater, but still lots of hops.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Great original IPA. Aroma has a nice dose of pine as well as some citrus hops, malt and even something that almost tastes like mint. Pours pretty amber. Ok head, some lacing. Aftertaste bitter and a little minty. Average carbonation. Definitely original. Bottle.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
The commercial description is spot on. The aroma is dominated by a spicy, peppery hop note and a touch of sweetness from the malt. On the palate, the malt profile is drier than many IPAs with similar bitterness and overall hop profile. Interesting, but not sessionable for me due to the dryness.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Hazy dark orange amber, 1" head with good retention, big swirls of lace. Taste begins with sweet caramel malt followed closely by bitter piney hops. Both sides run together to a satisfying, dry finish. This is a superb IPA with plenty of flavor as well as plenty of pine hops. Great balance, easy to drink. another keeper from Dark Horse. Do they ever produce anything that isnít top-line?

Dark orange look, a lot of citrus fruit, a hoppy beer, Not a hop beer person, then this one is not for you.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
An orangebrown beer with a weak and blond head. Aroma is fruitfull with lots of fructose sweetness, peaches, some pine. Taste is fruitfull and caramelly in the beginning, then more bitterness that dries the taste, some grapefruits, sweetness are still there in the aftertaste. Medium bodied, nice and refreshning carbonation. Quite sweet IPA, that feels a little bit too heavy.
