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.

hazy amber pour. Aroma is fruit and floral with a little pine. Flavors of grapefruit, malt, a little caramel, and just a little pine. Easy to drink.

Bottle poured into a tulip glass. Ruby red and a small off white head. Aroma is a little malty and piney. Taste is much more complex! Loads of floral, pine, and a tiny bit of citrus in there all hitting you at once. Pine resin aftertaste. A nice medium body and kinda light carbonation. Hard to call this balanced.

malty and fresh hops in the aroma. Flavor wise, hops lean towards resin. Very drinkable and great body.

I do not wax on poetically about beer but I do know the quality of a beer once tasted. This review is not about my tastes but reinforces the numbers, which are arbitrary.

Maris (1323) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - MAY 3, 2016
From a 355ml bottle on 3/5/2016. Pours a dark golden/light amber with a medium head. Has a light aroma of caramel and floral hops. Flavour wise, there’s a decent dash of caramel malt, some sweet citrus fruit, followed by quite a spicy, slightly peppery bitterness - a bit rye IPA-like. Medium bodied with average carbonation.Very solid.

pwanamaker (11) - Kansas, USA - APR 22, 2016
Dark amber/copper with a nice lasting head. Caramel aroma. Taste is fairly typical IPA, maybe a little more caramel and a nice finish. Good body and mouthfeel. Not my favorite, but not bad at all.

Lowe1983 (1475) - Dayton, Ohio, USA - MAR 24, 2016
Pours a darker amber color with an off-white head. Aroma is of caramel malts and that about it. Not much hops for an IPA. Flavor has more hops than the aroma but not much more. Kind of had a soapy flavor as well.

Gespuccian (81) - Wisconsin, USA - MAR 16, 2016
Pours a golden brown - a little bit darker for this style. Nice head and lacing. Aroma of apricot and pine. Big mouth feel with resiny floral hops, and full, slightly bitter finish.

@ Deschutes 16-3-10: Tydlig humlig men även lite söt. Ingen distinkt smak. Ok läskande men inget mer.

Derek881 (1231) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAR 10, 2016
Poured from the bottle into a pint glass to drink. The beer had a fairly dark amber-copper color with a large foamy off-white head with excellent retention, along with good cling and lacing. Its aroma featured a blend of hops notes, particularly pine and floral hops, along with a mix of some lighter citrus tones and some mild grassy and grainy notes. It had a pleasant and somewhat moderate bitter taste, featuring pine and floral flavors, with a grainy effect, and a zesty citrus component too. The beer was fairly dry with a medium-thick mouth presence, and with good carbonation, along with a thicker finish.
