COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Enter, if you will, all the glorious aromatic complexity of the hop. This big, bold IPA’s intense multi-hop kick gets a subtle dose of restraint from select Crystal and Carastan malts. For discriminating hop heads.

sistinas (102) - Mountain View, California, USA - OCT 6, 2006
Bottle. Pours a dark amber with a medium head that leaves some decent lacing. Super hoppy aroma with notes of citrus and pine. Taste is dominated by bitter hops, a little caramel. White grapefruit flavors and finish give it a bit of harshness that I’m not particularly into, as I’m more apt to throw the things at people than eat them. I’d have liked a little more sweetness to balance it out, but decent overall.

Svesse (6967) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - OCT 5, 2006
(Bottle, Stockholm Beer Festival, 30 Sep) Dark amber colour with small head. Fruity nose with powerful hoppy aromas, notes of grapefruit, pine needles and resin. Fruity, seriously hoppy, taste with grapefruit, pine needles, resin and harsh earthy hop flavours in the finish. Starts sweet, turns drier towards the finish, medium body. Very hoppy and very nice.

weeare138 (936) - Collegeville, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 4, 2006
Thanks to zrrbrrt for this... Appears a medium toned, hazy amber with a small off-white head that sLowly fades out. Streaks of lacing was left around the glass. Smell is creamy, citrusy, with caramel, grass, and biscuits. Taste is of the mentioned aromas highlighted with earthy, grassy, and citrusy flavors. Mouthfeel is bitter without much of a sugary, ballsy malt balance that I was craving in this one.

UPDATED: OCT 10, 2006 (Bottle) Pours hazy amber. No head. Fresh, piny hop aroma with exotic fruits like orange, pineapple and apricot. Piney, rasiny hop flavour with good, balanced, grapefruity bitterness/afterbitterness. Medium body.

Bottled (became rating #2000). Hazy, darkish amber colour with small beige head. Aroma is fruitish and flowery hops with sweet candyish hints. Liked the aroma very much. Flavour again is grassy, slight caramellish and hayish. Quite standard IPA.
