Osprey87 (2049) - - MAR 23, 2013
Cold bottle. Dark colour for an IPA. Toned down IPA smell. Initially very spicy with slight turkish delight sweetness, bit floral but very little bitterness. Like a cross between Stone Arrogant Bastard and Stone Pale Ale. Aftertaste is a bit watery.

superspak (2840) - Michigan, USA - OCT 30, 2014
330 ml bottle into pint glass, best before 9/2016. Pours moderately hazy deep orange/copper color with a 2 finger dense and rocky light khaki head with fantastic retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Nice dense foamy lacing clings on the glass, with a good amount of stremaing carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of grapefruit, tangerine, orange peel, lemon zest, pineapple, caramel, toasted bread, light toffee, herbal, floral, grass, light pine, and floral/grassy earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with balanced citrus/grassy hops and dark/bready malt sweetness; with solid strength. Taste of grapefruit, tangerine, orange peel, pineapple, lemon zest, citrus rind, pine, caramel, toasted bread, light toffee, herbal, floral, grass, and herbal/grassy earthiness. Good amount of pine/citrus rind bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, tangerine, orange peel/rind, pineapple, pine, caramel, toasted bread, floral, and herbal/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice complexity and balance of big citrus/pine hops and moderate dark/bready malt sweetness; with a crisp malt/bitterness balance and no cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, crisp, and moderately sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very good American IPA style. All around good balance and complexity of big citrus/pine hops and moderate dark/bready malt flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.

graf0 (119) - POLAND - OCT 4, 2014
Grunge jest barwy miedzianej, posiada dość bujną, zwartą pianę. W aromacie ładny zapach: ziołowy, cytrusowy z słodowymi nutami. Połączenie tych  aromatów przywołuje skojarzenie z herbatą Lipton. W smaku mamy mocne akcenty karmelowe, które trochę dominują nad goryczkowym finiszem. Balans tego piwa jest mocno przesunięty w stronę słodyczy. W odczuciu to IPA jest zbyt mocno wysycone oraz rozgrzewa przełyk.

330ml bottle. Hazy dark amber color. Small size, yellow head, stays. Sweet, hops, fruity, pine and dusty grains in aroma. Smoked dusty grains and then again some burnt plastic in taste. Weird strong bitterness. Definitely some plastic going on in aftertaste. Very high carbonation. Ups a plastic in burp!

VamboladeTolly (250) - Tartu, ESTONIA - SEP 9, 2014
Bottle@ De Tolly Joogipood. Color dark orange, hazy with small head. Aroma of sweet, malts, caramel, riped beeies, little citrus. Taste is the same. Almost no bitterness for a IPA. Medium body. Wait a little bitterness came, but in mine throat. Good beer but not so good IPA.

Shared by martjoobolut, thanks! Murky orange, tan head. Fruity nose, peaches, mango, pineapple, lychee. Flavor is caramel hints and malt, hops, lots of fruity notes. Bitterness in the finish is quite mild. OK I guess, but nothing special.

mile (3129) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 13, 2014
Bottle. Dark golden, cloudy, average to large and mostly diminishing head. Moderate to full, malty and sweetish aroma, some caramel and tropical fruitiness, grapefruit - some piney hoppyness. Body is medium to full, malty and sweetish flavor, some caramel and light tropical fruitiness, some grapefruit - piney hoppyness. Finish is average, malty and lightly sweetish, light - some caramel and light fruitiness, piney - some grapefruit hoppyness. IPA with caramel - could use more hoppyness (and less caramel).
