Nice IPA. Much better than I expected. Bold hops flavor but not overpowering and unbalanced. Serving: Bottle

oOJUXEOo (274) - Huntingdon Valley, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 16, 2010
Bottle. Pours with light white head. Aroma is really nothing to write home about. Sort of an off smell. Taste is smooth. A nice hop background that isn’t overbearing. A decent mellow IPA

arone12 (919) - Maryland, USA - AUG 14, 2010
Smells of citrus and hops. Taste is a bit fruity with a very bitter aftertaste. Cool bottle label

JStax (2960) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - AUG 13, 2010
UPDATED: JAN 7, 2011 From the bottle. This beer surpassed my expectations. There is a big hop presence all throughout this beer in the smell, taste and finish. Pine also comes to the forefront towards the end. This has a nice bitterness but still is balanced enough to make it easy to drink.

tommann (2700) - Dudley, West Midlands, ENGLAND - AUG 11, 2010
355ml bottle. Pours a hazy orange with a small, frothy head. Aroma is hops, tangerine and a little caramel as well. Quite balanced, caramel and piney to start, with a citrus, hoppy medium/strong bitter finish. Nice and full in the mouth.

hellbilly (3249) - scottsdale über alles, Arizona, USA - JUL 30, 2010
on tap at pap 5/13/10. coppery and clear with a soft white head. it smells a lot like spicy canned peaches... combined with orange, grapefruit pith, light pine and caramel. the palate is a little sweeter than i typically enjoy in an ipa. it is malty mixed with all of the characteristics of the aroma and a dry spicy bitterness on the finish. it is medium bodied... tingly though a bit sticky. 6/4/6/3/14/3.3

tennessejed420 (927) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUL 29, 2010
bottle. Pours a red gold color with slightly beige thin head. Aroma of resiny hops, with some fruit tones, pineapple citrus, apricot, and actually a soft tone of pepper. Medium bodied, pretty smooth and drinkable, not as syrupy / thick as many IPAs. Taste is bitter hop nectar to some pineapple pepper and still hop bitterness on the finish. A pretty solid IPA, which features more molasses malt undertones and less of a crisp hop bite than others.

mickut (276) - Espoo, FINLAND - JUL 28, 2010
Bottled. Pours amber with smallish off-white tan head. Taste is well-bittered. Palate has medium body, slick feel, lively carbonation, a fairly short and tannin-like drynes in the finish. Aromas have caramel, fruity hops and grapefruit, grains.

imdownthepub (10140) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 23, 2010
Keg, 330ml at Trapistlokaal t klooster, Delft. Sl cloudy amber with white head. Initially I thought why come to Holland and then try American beers, but what the hell. Sharp, bittersweet hop notes with a touch of pipe cleaner, bitter lemons, challenging.

exparte (59) - Austin, Texas, USA - JUL 20, 2010
Sweet biscuity malt upfront followed by orange citrus and pine. Bright orange with a wispy white head. Significant residual sweetness that’s quickly overpowered by bitterness. Soft and a bit oily with surprisingly dry bitter finish despite the residual sweetness. Nice hop profile but a bit too harsh.
