UPDATED: FEB 19, 2011 Húhhh! Annyi mindent tudnék írni erről a csodáról. Egyszerűen zseniális, imádom. Elfogult vagyok és kész na ez van. Etalon IPA, etalon sör. Ezt meg kell kóstolni. Gyanítom, hogy aki nem szerette vagy csak alig az árpafőzeteket az innentől erősen elmereng... Csak néhány dolog: citrus, méz, komló, keserű, zeller, élesztő, áhhhhh.... NE TÚL HIDEGEN!!!!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle. Pours a crystal clear copper color with a billowy cream colored head that slowly recedes, eventually falling to a thin froth leaving lots of lacing. Smells grapefruity citrus and woody pine, with hints of maltiness. Taste is light caramel up front, grapefruity citrus and slight spice throughout, with a roasted malt finish. Medium bodied and well carbonated.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle. Poured orangish with a short dense off white head. Atoms is belgain spicey yeast with nice citrus. Flavor is very sweet up front like a belgain triple, but the finish is bitter. Not as crisp and hoppy as I’d like, but I think the bottle was old. Finish was slightly sticky

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz. bottle served in shaker- porued a transparent aged copper color, medium and effervescent carbonation. 3mm white head formed and laced nicely, aroma of yeast, coriander, and malt. Hits the mouth with a medium body, malt is there and has just a touch of caramel laced within it, middle has the usual hop wave but is transverse with an almost belgian ale feel to it, finish is acidic, longing, and leaves you wanting more. Oh yeah!

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12oz bottle from Bevmo in West Hollywood. Pours clear golden copper with large off-white head. Aroma of citrus, hops, yeast, light malt, mangos and other tropical fruits. Flavours of sweet malt, yeast, mild Belgian spices, tropical fruit, pine, citrus, and bitter hops. Finishes bitter. Nice hop bitterness. Especially for a Belgian style IPA. Pretty good beer and definitely the top one or two I’ve had from this brewery.
