COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Itís not as heavy bodied and malty as many IPAís, 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.

12 oz bottle into a nonic pint glass. A: Pours a murky copper color with TONS of yeast sediment in the glass. The head is a one finger offwhite shade. Thereís a good creaminess to the texture, even if it fades moderately quickly. Still, itís not exactly an attractive beer. S: This has a pervasive biscuit quality to the aroma; it melds reasonably well with the textbook grapefruit peel and pine qualities from the hops. The maltiness is sweet and caramel-esque, like I expect. Typical, but I really like how strongly the aroma emanates from the glass. T: The biscuit from the aroma subsides a bit, being supplanted by some initial grapefruit qualities. Still, this is one of the most biscuity IPAs Iíve ever had. Pine bitterness pops up in the midtaste before seemingly washing away on the finish. No one note here really stands out from the pack - however, it compensates by coming across as a great thirst quencher with a modicum of complexity. M: While the body isnít lightweight, it manages to drink crisply anyways. Astringency is balanced well, with only a moderate bitterness accumulating on the palate. Carbonation is high yet controlled in order to preserve the refreshment qualities this provides. O: I reckon this one would really work during the summertime - in some ways, this drinks like a saison. There are better IPAs to be found, but there are also many worse ones as well.

Bottle shared. Nice juicy fruitiness, decent malt backbone, fairly classic stuff yet solid ipa. A bit too simple maybe in this new era of galactic whales and unicorns.

chinchill (4271) - South Carolina, USA - SEP 24, 2016
12 oz bottle from SC with a bottling date of Jan. 2016. Hazy copper body with an over-sized,fluffy off-white head. Exceptional retention and lacing. Some sediment stuck on the bottom of the bottle. Mildly hoppy aroma, likely subdued by the thick head. Moderately strong flavor with medium-high bitterness for style. Good mouthfeel excepting for some mile hops-alcohol harshness.

willisread (2473) - Tokyo, JAPAN - SEP 10, 2016
Bottle shared. Thanks Gregg! Light flavors on the nose, caramel, maybe some faint pine. Clean and well-balanced. Very malty with a touch of citrus on the palate. Some light cocoa towards the end. Nice old school IPA.

Tap @ Himmeriget. Medium brown, reasonable head. Boiled sweet hop aroma. Sweet biscuit hop flavour. Bitter toffee hop aftertaste. Another good IPA.

jinroh (1207) - ESTONIA - SEP 3, 2016
Pours hazy amber, not much foam. Aroma is sweetish, malty base with a decent hop kick. This is highly drinkable, malty IPA. Lingering dry bitterness in the finish. Stuff you drink by the pints.

TimE (5049) - Tokyo, JAPAN - SEP 3, 2016
Medium dark amber color. The nose is fairly muted with some managoes and citrus notes. Medium body. Modest bitterness, but actually not that interesting.

Rask0lnikov (751) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - AUG 28, 2016
On tap at RCBW 2016. Slightly hazy orange colour. High, white head. Sweetness, apricot, notes of pineapple, citrusses in the aroma. Slight bitterness and fruitiness at first. Hoppy and bitter in the middle. Citrussy finish. Quite drinkable and refreshing IPA.

Good IPA. Had at the brewery and was not disappointed. Good mix of hops give this a taste that falls between the citrus and pine zone.
