COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A West Coast original, this IPA has bold levels of hop aroma, bitterness, and flavor. Dry hopped in two stages to give it a piney, citrusy and soft fruit flavor to satisfy your hop cravings. Note: DO NOT confuse with the single hop versions.

Kauge (536) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAR 31, 2015
Tap at Tallinn Craft Beer Weekend 2015. Dark amber colour, head big-bubbled and beige. Pretty good citrusy, marmalady, sweet, somewhat tart aroma. Tastes similar, very citrusy bitter yet nicely balanced by the thick (and not sugary) sweetness. Body medium, carbonation below average but with certain prickliness. Palate dryish. Pretty nice overall.

Unde (486) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAR 21, 2015
Amber colour with smallish head but lots of lacing. Aroma has pines, citrus, grass and grapefruit. Taste has lots of pines and bitter grapefruit. Sweet caramel malt is there too and some citrus. Quite bitter after taste. Medium body and medium carbonation. Nice hoppy IPA.

Marstonlad (518) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAR 20, 2015
Bottle at WilliamK, Helsinki. A color of cloudy deep amber, a medium-sized frothy head. The aroma displays mostly strong piney and citrusy hoppiness. Taste is expectedly hoppy and dry, the bitterness reaches quite high levels. Flavours of pine, grapefruit and grass feature. The palate is medium bodied, the texture slick and the carbonation average. An American style IPA indeed, very big hop character.

leischka (33) - - MAR 16, 2015
Todella tuhti humalan aromi. Kukkainen, aavistus ruohoa. Katkeroinen. Sumeahko ja juuri ja juuri läpi näkyvä. Nätti kuparinen väri. Isot kuplat reunoilla, pienet keskemmällä Pitkäikäinen vaahto. Maku lunastaa tuoksun lupaukset. Vahvat katkerot, kihelmöi kielellä. Hyvä tuhti runko, humalat edellä. Nautittu panimolla hanasta, tuoreus maistuu hyvin.

Hermod (3769) - Vantaa, FINLAND - MAR 11, 2015
33cl bottle @ Kitty’s. Deep amber color, thin white head. Caramel lurking, fruity, dark, inviting, hoppy, musty aroma. Wow. Seldom do you get this much out of the aroma only. Can’t stop sniffing it. Flavor has caramel, citrus, malt, hops. Awesome. This beer has the balance, the bitterness, the flavor, all. Very enjoyable. Nutty aftertaste.
