COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This big, glowing, powerful IPA is packed with assertive Northwest hops that are floral, citrusy and resinous. A healthy dose of Munich malt helps to provide backbone and balance against the hoppy attack. The result? Explosive! Brewed with Gambrinus Organic Pilsner and Munich Malt, Centennial and Cascade hops. 7.0% ABV, 75 BU

Fluffy, just yellowish head over orange-golden beer; Typical exotic fruit nose, but in a syrupy, sweet way, apricot liqueur, maybe a tad oxydized. Bitter, metallic, bitter fruit. In the finish there is a grainy flavour, again seemingly just a tad oxydized. Orange- and apricot liqueurs, rosewater, if bitter. Very slick, well-bodied, good carbonation. Not a very outstanding IIPA, IMO.

Aroma of biscuity malt, citrus, orange, fruits, pine resin, tea leaves, mild hops. Flavour is light sweet with a medium bitter finish. I usually like my IPA a lot more fruity and less malty, but I gues the tea leaves (which I’m a sucker for) won me over.

Bosskie (587) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 12, 2015
Opaque, orange-brown beer with a nice white head. Smell is white pepper, malty, leather, metallic. Quite crisp. Reminds me of a German ale. Taste is deliciously balanced hop bitterness, complex and full without being overwhelming. Refreshing.

Bottle picked up from Fyne Ales Brewery, consumed at Craigendmuir campsite, Stepps, Nr Glasgow, Thursday 18th June 2015 Pours hazy gold/orange with a white sticky head. It’s fine but no great shakes, it’s American so you get the standard American hoppy IPA flavour which more often than not tends to err’ towards malty and a touch too sweet. Some sweet orange and rind, yes it’s fine. A6 A4 T7 P3 Ov14 3.4

Had on draft at the brewery. Tropical fruit, hoppy, clean with very little grassy hop character. Great IPA.

mike_77 (3926) - Breda, NETHERLANDS - JUN 13, 2015
Delicate aroma with floral hop tones. Fairly lightly flavoured for an IPA but the balance is good. Moderate bitterness makes for a good session beer. Nice that the maltiness is retained well.

Aroma is not that pronounced for an IPA. The body is creamy, but lacking bitterness. Some metallic taste in there. Not a good beer, or at least not this bottle.
