Brewed with extra hops and malt in the English tradition, but with West Coast style. This deep golden India Pale Ale is artfully balanced with a fresh, powerful aroma and a luscious finish.

tectactoe (3125) - Michigan, USA - NOV 10, 2013
Bottle: slightly hazed amber center with some gold around the edges; big, chunky light-beige head that leaves very nice lacing behind. Aroma contains a lightly ashy, piney, & herbal hop profile on top of a seemingly sticky sweet malt background with caramel & toffee. Smells both bitter & sweet. Taste is sticky toffee malt up front with a lighter hop presence on top of it. Light citrus peel & pine notes, but mostly toffee, caramel, & light butterscotch malt notes. Sweet, toasty bread finish. Not bad, but not what I look for in an IPA - too large of a malt presence for such a modest hop bill.

Idiosynkrasie (6173) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - JUL 21, 2016
355ml bottle. Clear, orangey golden colour with average to huge, thick, creamy, fairly lasting, minimally lacing, white head. Floral hoppy aroma, hints of chamomile, lavender, idunno, a touch of liquorice as well. Taste is bitter hoppy, slightly floral, some liquorice, biscuity malty basis with a crakcer touch; throttled lively carbonation. Nothing spectacular, but flawless, clean and crisp.

tomekk1978 (1284) - Z±bki, POLAND - JUN 20, 2016
Początkowo niemal idealny aromat cytrusowo (z przewagą grejpfruta) - ziołowy, choć zaakcentowany został również słód (chleb, ciastka, trochę karmelu). Niestety po chwili dochodzą nuty lekko anyżkowe i miodowe, świadczące o utlenieniu. Szkoda bo zapowiadało się naprawdę nieźle.

Barwa złota, głęboka, lekko zamglona. Żółto- biała, drobno pęcherzykowa piana, obfita i względnie trwała, ładnie oblepiająca szkło.

Smak to tradycyjna angielska słodowość, dobrze podbudowująca nadchodzącą chmielową kontrę i alkohol. Goryczka owocowo- ziołowa, powyżej średniej, dość drażniąca i długa. Średnia do krągłej pełnia, umiarkowane wysycenie i nieco cierpki, lekko alkoholowy finisz. Niezłe piwo, ale goryczka i alkohol mogły by być nieco mniej wyraźne. Do tego przydałoby się bardziej świeże.

355ml bottle - thanks martjoobolut - at 7.0%
Weird sweet creamy aroma, smoky hint. Later a hint of alcohol. Messy. Sweet malty body, some soapy hoppiness. Smooth sugary palate. Rather bland, not much hopping, some gentle bitterness. Fortunately the alcohol is covered - I was going to give it a lower score, but I’ll save it a point for not being boozy.

MelvinKalksma (800) - UTRECHT, NETHERLANDS - MAY 22, 2016

Medium/heavy aroma of malts, caramel, tea, orange, tropical fruit, pine, hops and citrus.

Hazy/turbid golden/amber beer with a slight/medium white/off-white head.

Starts medium sweet with malts, caramel, orange, tropical fruit and pine; ends slightly bitter and dry with tea, hops and citrus.

This beer might not be really intense or complex, but has depth and is balanced with interesting flavours. The earthy malts bring a nice tea flavour to it all.

Bottle at home. Clear orange pour, thin white head. Aroma of fruity hops, citrus, pine, tangerine and some resin. Flavor is quite bitter, fruity, sugary malts and quite refreshing. Smooth texture, thick body and well balanced. Nice brew.
