3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle poured into nonic. Hazy orange liquid with a two finger eggshell head. Some lacing. Aroma is caramel, muted citrus fruit, grass, and bready malt. Flavor is caramel sweetness and some grapefruit flesh and peel, bread, and pine hop resin. I expected a more pronounced hop profile based on other reviews. I’ll chalk it up to the fact that this beer was bottled in September and I drank it in February. Medium body, slick but resinous texture, average carbonation, long bitter finish. I’ll try a fresher one and see if it helps.

Bottle from craft and dough, sheffield. Deep orange with a lacy off white head. Aroma is floral and malty, with wood resin and a bit of whisky woody notes. Taste is bitter and savoury, long lasting as well. Prickly carbonation and a thin/medium body. Very nice.

Draft at Khyber Pass. Clear dark orange pour. Off-white foam on top. Lace. Pleasant earthy citrus flavors. Syrupy caramel toffee malts. Plums and prunes. Tangerine peels. Clear sugar candy toys. Disparate notes of pimento, cocoa beans, black cherries, shiitake mushrooms, bamboo shoots and gummy bears. Not your usual IPA.

355 mL can from Danish supermarket. Pours nearly clear orange with a medium off-white head. Leaves lots of lacing on the glass. Lots of fresh hops in the aroma, with citrus, orange especially, and a bit floral. Some malts as well. The taste is moderate to high bitter, moderate sweet. Smooth palate, decent and pleasant, but lacks any sort of complexity.

Wife picked up a six pack while in Grand Rapids for work. I am glad she did. Pours a nice deep orange with a pleasant aroma. Lots going on with the flavor. It was hints of citrus, pine and bread. IPAs have grown on me over the years and I would say this a very good example of the style.

Pours a dark orange amber with a small white head. Aroma is very floral with some tropical fruit notes. Flavor is also floral with light notes of of tropical fruit. Not as resinous as I would have though and pleasantly so. Medium body and carbonation. Finish is so pleasantly dry. This is an over the top drinkable IPA
