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

Bottle to tulip glass. I think this must have been waaaay past itís prime, if I ever get a chance to score a fresh one I will re-rate. Pours golden cloudy orangey with a lot foamy white head. Munich malts on the nose, no hop presence whatsoever, this smelled like a run of the mill APA. Taste was more of the same, this has to be long past itís time of goodness. Bitterness is quite low, the malt presence is pretty much all Iím tasting. Based on all the other characteristics of this beer you can tell its well made, the mouthfeel and carbonation are both very pleasing and again probably quite nice when fresh. This came across the country in a car and was one of the last beers I got after. Better luck next time methinks!

Pours from bottle with a thick foam , tropical fruit and hop, and an almost DIPA sherbet aroma. Flavour is well balanced, with quite a bit of malt character.

Burnished golden color out of the bottle with a sticky ivory head. Sweet orange and tropical fruit nose. Thick mouth feel with caramel sweetness and crust bread. Candied grapefruit rind, orange peel, some tropical fruit and a bit of grass in the finish. Pretty sweet beer. Nice hop burbs, though.

Unde (594) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 22, 2015
Hazy orange beer, not much head. No lacing. Aroma is hoppy, there is grass, berries and some caramel. Honey sweetness. Taste has lots of grassy hops, herbs, some fruits and ending with a bitter hops. Quite full body and medium carbonation.

JorisPPattyn (8570) - Ursel, BELGIUM - JUL 28, 2015
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.

tricksta_p (2087) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - JUL 23, 2015
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 Iím a sucker for) won me over.

Bosskie (603) - 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. Itís fine but no great shakes, itís American so you get the standard American hoppy IPA flavour which more often than not tends to errí towards malty and a touch too sweet. Some sweet orange and rind, yes itís 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.
