Bottle. Pours a clear, bright amber, medium off-white head. Grapefruit, sweet malt and citrus dominate the aroma. Hops, citrus and a touch of caramel comes across strong in the flavor. Bitter and dry finish.

This is like the other style IPA that I don’t lean towards. Beautiful complex floral aroma. Creamy marshmallow palate. Not to bitter. Where’s the malt? The caramel? Delicious but lacking. If they tweaked this in a different way.... Epic!

cprochak (590) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 17, 2009
Draft from Brouwer’s. Pours a clear golden with a bubbly cream head and a nice hoppy aroma. A little sweet, but balenced well with a tiny bitterness. Clean finish makes this a very drinkable and well balanced IPA.

CelticBrew (752) - The Crystal Coast, North Carolina, USA - MAY 15, 2009
Poured from bomber a light copper/amber, forming small head of foam, aroma, much of grapefruits, light mangos, a bit of hops and caramel. Flavour was carbonated, with a tinge of biscuit. Grassy floral component joins residual citrus hop flavors Very well balanced, easy to quaff, tasty beer.

22 oz bottle. Clear orange with a frothy off-white head. Nose is orange, melon and caramel. Medium, resiny body with a sprinkling of carb. Taste is orange marmalade, lemon, caramel and pine. Well balanced and quite tasty. Solid IPA.

Was really excited to try this badboy since I’ve passed the brewery many a time. Let me just say this is a really good ipa. Got a 6 pack of this and wow is it tasty. It has grapefruit taste with hops and then a little bitter taste. A great ipa and for the money well well worth it

Slepkov (36) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 10, 2009
This looked to be a run-of-the-mill over the top IPA. The appearance is what you would expect, a not-at-all pale hazy light amber, with a typical coarse head. God save the Queen! At the forefront is a shower of grapefruit followed shortly by pine resin and a finish of mineral dirtiness reminiscent of dead-sea mud. The bitterness is apparent, but well balanced by the malt. Very near perfection. May very well be the best I’ve had! I need to go drink some Heavy Seas Loose Cannon to make sure...

Alasdair (76) - NEW ZEALAND - MAY 9, 2009
big citrus and malt aroma. Big, chewy malt character with serious bitterness. The balanced finish makes it dangerously drinkable, but it is almost too chewy.

raphael (873) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 5, 2009
Grapefruit with a little resin i the roma, distant caramel. clear amber with modest head. flavor well rounded but a little dilute, as is the bitterness.
