Orange citrus, floral and caramel notes to the aroma. Hazy/opaque tan-brown body is topped by a decent and long lasting, large bubbled, off white head that leaves scant lace. Flavour follows aroma with some tea-lime tannins and a fairly pronounced bitterness. Medium body with smooth texture and fair carbonation. Sampled on cask at the brewpub.

Draft. orange amber pour with some light head. Herbal, fruit and light floral aroma. Body leaves something to wish for. Flavor is probably been through some oxidation, light herbal spice and fruit tones, are modest and seem compromised.

Tap at the brewery. Great beer, very different. Aromas of caramel, and flowers. Taste is sweet, with bitter notes, and a long finish. Palate is creamy, and medium bodied. Amber, with a pillow head.

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - DEC 14, 2010
Draft. Pours an amber body with a hazy off white head. Sweet and fruity with a dry fruit toned finish. A big body creamy, not so much thick as it is full. Hints of apricots. Overall the hop tones are far from bright, rather dust y and taking on more of a floral note. I could understand feeling a bit of oxidation here as well.

Has a hoppy aroma, but nothing else. Decent head and a foggy orange body. Flavour is lots of hops - a simple flavour. It’s a slightly below average brew for this style, but overall a decent IPA.

Dickinsonbeer (5075) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - DEC 2, 2010
Tap at BT. Pours a light hazed bright amber and a medium thick sticky creamy white head. Aroma is earth, leather, toast, older citrusy hops, light grass and some slight vege notes. Flavor is creamy- almost a wheaty doughy hint, then light corn, bread, toasted malts, light paper and mineral with some decent hops- seems a bit old slight stale oxidation setting in just a bit which gives a very slight astringency in the end. Ok.

On tap at the brewpub. Thick creamy head slowly rises to the top of this amber colored ale, beautiful. Aroma is everything you expect from a darker IPA, a good selection of piney hops and caramel malts. Taste is much the same, well balanced sweetness and bitterness overall. Palate is delightfully creamy, an excellent pint.

MiP (14562) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - SEP 9, 2010
Draught, 6.8% at the brewpub. Weak caramelly hop aroma. Hazy copper colour. Good stable creamy white head. The flavour has a mild caramelly hoppiness, getting quite bitter towards the finish. Very creamy mouthfeel. Good aroma hop finish.

blankboy (6787) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 26, 2010
Draught at Dieu du Ciel. Pours a hazy deep gold with an average size long-lasting creamy off-white head and good lacing on the glass -- looks great! Very mild aroma of fruit, light hops and caramel malt. Flavour’s better, with a decent amount of hops, mostly in the finish, along with fruit and grain. Long bitter finish. Average to medium bodied. Quite good for a ’Cream Ale’, a style I often don’t care for.
