Clear golden red, small white head. Strong floral aroma. Big thick hops kick with a fruity background. Nice beer - much enjoyed.

It pours a hazy orange with a head that rapidly disappears leaving a ring around the edges resulting in some minor lacing. The aroma is quite typical of a modern American Pale Ale with lots of citrus, pine and tropical fruits all warring for your attention. The flavour is beautifully balanced with the sweet citrus fruits, pine needles and tropical fruits backed up by a solid malt base. The after taste is pine resins, citrus fruit and a bitterness that lingers long enough to let you appreciate it but not long enough to get annoying. The mouth feel is silky with a bit of hop resin that lingers in the cheeks.

I’ve had this in bottles and on tap. I highly recommend this on tap. Had it at Hotel Warrnambool. My beer of choice.

Bathory (458) - Bryne, NORWAY - JAN 8, 2014
Pours a cloudy coppery colour with a small white head. Intensely peach and mango in the aroma, love the smell! Taste is peaches and passionfruit, which trancends over to a long grapy finish with just the right amount of bitterness. Refreshing palate, soft carbonation and a medium body. This is a really good IPA, it really took me by supprise.

kermis (4921) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - DEC 29, 2013
Bottle at home. Pours cloudy orange golden with an off white head. Aroma of nettles, weedy hops, pine and some citrus. Flavor is light sweet and over moderate bitter. Medium bodied with light carbonation.

fiulijn (14380) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 25, 2013
Bottle at SQUE Rotisserie & Alehouse, Singapore
Hazy amber color, frothy head. The aroma is a bit fruity and malty. The malt and caramel flavor is a bit stale, moderate residual sweetness, correct bitterness, with hop fruits and resins in small quantities; a bit like American IPAs from the 90’s.

Thick head. Pine needle aroma. Nice hoppy flavor without being overpowering until the end as with most ipa's. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

What is an IPA I hear you ask? Well crack open a feral hop hog and step into the wonders of a modern american IPA. Fruity aroma, rich white head, crisp pine hops and a sweet malt spine. A perfect gateway IPA and a solid ’go to’ beer. Would drink time and time again.
