brewskis (123) - Saint John, Indiana, USA - JAN 20, 2013
Pours a hazy burnt orange color with a two finger off white head. Head dissipates slowly and leaves a blanket of lacing. Lots of carbonation coming off the glass. Smells of tons of grapefruit, blood oranges, floral, grape, raspberries? A wine-like smell. Little bit of breadiness and carmel coming through after the initial bitter fruits smell. A musty, earthy smell as well. This beer is almost a year old and the amarillo hop presence on the nose has still not gone away. Taste starts with a moderate hop presence that brings grapefruit, orange, grape, maybe some passionfruit. Leaves you wanting more on the front. Then get a nice dose of breadiness along with some carmel sweetness from the malts. Then comes back with more grapefruit, grape, orange, grass. Decent bitterness, but almost get a watered down sensation on the finish, as well as some booze. Get a good amount of sweetness on the finish as well. Low full body with a sticky and creamy mouthfeel. There is something definitely missing here. The age unfortunately showed and took away from the hop bite. Some IPA’s from overseas can really be great, but the high price combined with the lack of freshness is really starting to push me away. A fresher bottle could change my mind, but there is just something lacking here.

romanstep (279) - Warszawa, POLAND - OCT 15, 2016
W nosie dość słodko dojrzały ananas, pomarańcza, zioła i karmel. Barwa złota, lekka opalizacja, piana niska, ale o drobnych ziarnach.

kostasgiotis (89) - GREECE - OCT 2, 2016
Just an average imperial ΙΡΑ. Amarillo hopping is not bad but there is nothing on the ather side to fight against. Almost orange light body with a white head. The aromas are anana and lemon.The taste is accordigly to the aromas and paired with a huge nice bitterness that stays for quite some time.
