COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
What makes a great leader? First of all a perfectly balanced blend of qualities, the ability to stand out,be authoritative without overpowering. Sho courage and endurance, you will lead the way and set the standards. Very important, be appealing and refreshing to the people. This stereotypical portrait applies whether referring to politics, religion or maybe even this outstanding IPA. -Evil Twin

Duhast500 (414) - Cumberland, Rhode Island, USA - APR 21, 2014
Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a Portsmouth brewery snifter. The color is a bright, cloudy yellow with a light white head and some nice lacing left on the glass. The smell is bright hops in the nose some good sweetness that reminds me of spring. There is some grassy aromas and a nice bright orange and mango aroma with smelled like there was fruit in this beer. The flavor is biscuit dough flavor at first with a tease of citrus and a tease of pine then a smack of bitterness. There is a slight push of bitterness that takes you aback before letting of earthy pine in. Resiny citrus flavor runs deep in this beer like a vain breathing life into the back-end where more bitterness punishes briefly before letting go. The feel of this beer is a medium which does try to be a bigger beer. The bitterness lingers a bit and makes it feel heavy but only briefly. This beer does go down well even with a certain amount of finessing. A hop lover must try.

cheap (4209) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 26, 2014
barnyard, hop aroma. decent head with no lacing. pale, hazy, look about it. sparkling with lots of precipants rolling around inthere. very bitter, mouth coating and somewhat rubbery. evolves from a slight fruity thing into this nasty nellie bitterness. not impressed. does not hide alky too well, lets you know its a kick in the jaw. goes astringent in teh finish then hangs around awhile letting you knw that you just finished a somewhat rude beer. decent amount of co2 makes it almost drinkable.

Tap at fermentoren cloudy yellow smooth white head.mild hoppy aroma with some malts too. Slightly flowery. Flavor is bitter hoppy also bitter fruit peel hoppy and grapefruit hoppy. Good solid body but Alc. Can be tasted, perhaps a bit too strong. Okay ipa but the twin can do much more evil than this

probstblueribbon (3067) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 11, 2014
12 oz bottle from BOTW (Rochester), served at cellar temperature in a tulip glass.

App.: Surprisingly bright golden with a fair white head. Aroma: Richly fruity and sweet with slightly eucalyptus/medicinal notes, berries, thick tropical fruits, a bit dusty/musty and moderate sulphur on re-examination. Palate: Medium body, soft carbonation, a bit astringent (not in a bad way). Flav.: Resinous, lightly peppery, still has a thick tropical fruit character, sweet light malts, a bit of eucalyptus, yup...a little sulphur; off-dry with fairly full bitterness and a long, resinous. peppercorn and resin finish.

Certainly different. Has some nice characteristics. Not entirely successful for my palate.

MichaelAwesome (4587) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - DEC 8, 2014
Hervorragendes IPA mit einer wundevoll frischen Note, einem ordentlich Bumms Hopfen und einer ausbalancierte Citrusnote im Aroma. Sehr süffig, sehr einfach zu trinken und die Bitterkeit zum Ende hin hält sich ebenfalls die Waage.
