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.

Aroma is floral, citrus, tropical fruit, slightly bready, pine, decent. Appearance is amber golden, hazy, off-white head. Taste is citrus, floral, pine, malt bitterness, tropical fruit, pretty bitter though. Mouthfeel is light to medium body, light crisp carbonation, citrus and pine aftertaste. Overall, this is probably the best IPA they make, and I’m pleasantly surprised.

WVHouseofBeer (1023) - Florida, USA - JUL 14, 2016
Pours a golden hue with a frothy white head. Nice citrus/grapefruit aromas. Straightforward citrus/grapefruit upfront with some caramel malt to balance out the bitterness (but it is still fairly bitter). Medium-bodied despite the light color. A solid IPA.

Rask0lnikov (615) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 16, 2016
Pale yellow colour. Modest white head. Lots if pineapple, citrusses, acididness, but at the same time sweetness in the aroma. Pineapple and citrusses at first. Sweetness. Bitterness and citrusses. Dry and bitter finish. Rather medium bodied, sweet at the beginning, dry and bitter in the end, medium carbonated IPA. Not a good palete and balance. However beer is drinkable.
