COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A prominent hop aroma with a citrusy, floral, resinous, piney, and passion fruit character derived from the American hops. It has been judiciously dry hopped to add aroma. Some clean malty sweetness but generally a lot lower than that found in an English IPA. Smooth medium-bodied mouthfeel without hop-derived bitterness, although moderate carbonation can combine to render an overall dry sensation in the presence of malt sweetness. Colour is medium gold and appearance is clear. Good head with white to off-white colour should persist.

Great example of an American IPA. Always consistent. Aroma is fantastic but hop flavor can sometimes be a little lacking

anstei (1176) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - JUN 30, 2016
Bottle. Indeed floral, resinous and piney. Some tropical fruits too, really pleasant aroma. Really low on malts and high on bitterness though, could be more balanced on that side. Surprisingly not a particularly dry palate, though. Still, a really good IPA for sure.

SinH4 (3081) - Garching b. MŁnchen, GERMANY - APR 29, 2016
Bottle. Hazy golden-orange color with small white head. Aroma is melon, caramel, piney-resinous hop oils. Taste is sweet toasty malts, caramel, piney, soothing. Bittersweet finish, but on the drier side for this pineyness. Fine-bubbled carbonation. A correct "woodfloor" IPA.
