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.

This is one IPA that’s not ashamed of being big and aggressive and I like it. It’s a gorgeous red color w/ a long lasting head. It’s nose is vaguely fruity and hoppy, good but not inspiring. When you taste it though, this sucker is huge. There’s just loads of hop bitterness and while there is a touch of malty sweetness it doesn’t come close to any sort of balance--and that’s a good thing! The bitterness clings to your tongue and begs you to take another sip. This is a dangerous one that you’ll want to suck down in volume in the hot summer son but will undoubtedly leave you w/ a headache after a couple hours sipping this and baking in the heat. Such is the life of a true beer geek. The ones of us who truly believe are willing to suffer for our love.

Great bitter citrus aroma and taste. Rich amber appearance, minimal head. Mouthfeel is crisp, but maybe a little syrupy. Overall, great beer.

Ins Glas ergießt sich ein orangebraunes Bier mit schöner cremigen leicht beigen Schaumkrone. Geruch kräftig malzig, hopfig, reife Früchte. Geschmack sehr malzig fruchtig, hopfig, bitter, reife Früchte.

Panzuriel (1291) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - JUL 13, 2014
Inversion is rich deep amber colored beer with a small head of white bubbles. Nose is definitely evergreen hops with a hint of sweetness. Taste is tangy at first but finishes with a bit of sweetness and bitterness on the finish. a really nice IPA.

Dark amber colour with a off white almost pale yellow head. Lace stays for days. Unique aroma, mostly bannana, nice though. The bannana follows through into the taste, with hints of malt and toffee in addition. Not as dense in the mouth as I like, but good carbonation and reserved dryness are the saviour here.

330ml bottle from Archive Beer Boutique. Rating from December 2013. There is a big hop wallop in the hose and a big piney resinous flavour. Long finish that is a touch dry. Overall very good.

Pretty good bitter IPA. Big lasting bitterness after a heavy pine resinous start. Nothing especially stood out hopwise for me. but nice and chewy.

ComradeK (992) - The Vale of Dundas, AUSTRALIA - JUL 4, 2014
355ml bottle. Pours a clear deep amber, with a moderate off-white head, which lasts fairly well and leaves decent lacing. Banana, resin and grapefruit hops and a little toffee malt make up the aroma. Pine and grapefruit hops up front give way to toffee malt in the mid-palate. A touch of banana leads into a pine hop finish. A decent IPA, but it doesn’t really stand out from the crowd.

Day 4 of my IPA Advent calendar. Straight down the middle safe but fine IPA. No distinct hop. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
