Citrus and Pine aroma. Light amber cloudy with off white head that lingers. Grapefruit, resin, spruce, citrus and malt flavors. Resiny mouthfeel with adequate carbonation and no burning alcohol. Dry finish.

Review based on bttle and draft. Pours hazy amber. Good nose with lots of hop, not bitter and there is a residual sweetness that is sticky. It is a good IPA but not within best of style. Having said this I still buy this on a regular basis but there are so many IPA to try you cannot help but compare to others. Foam and Fury from the same brewery is outstanding.

(50 cl bottle from Bradley’s Off-license, Cork; BBD: May 7th 2015; Lot: 084) Pours a hazy amber with little, white head and big bubbles that fade. Aroma is hoppy with notes of pine and grass. Oily texture, medium body, soft carbonation and a dry, crisp finish. Flavour is aromatically bitter. Decent.

A nice little Ipa with a reddish amber pour and a beautiful aroma of spicy and citrus based hops. Great cara malts and toasted bready notws blend well with a hit of moderate bitterness and grapefruit. A nice brew overall.

Tremendous IPA. I have no problem putting this on par with Alesmith, Stone, Maine, or Hill Farmstead. Pours a deep cloudy amber into the pint glass, medium off white head that dissipates quickly, nice soapy lacing left on the glass. Big grapefruit, juicy hop cones, tropical fruit, caramel, full oily mouthfeel, ranges from hoppy bitter to caramel smooth/sweet, back to long bitter finish. Really the best Irish IPA out there.

Fra fad, Brew Dock, Dublin. Uklar ravfarvet, lavt off white skum. Dufter frisk og lifligt af humle: Citrus og gran. Let karamel og toffee fra malten. Dejlig skarp, olieret humlebitterhed. Nice.

Bottle from Garthicus. Thanks a bunch Al. Dry Hopped IPA version. Hazy amber lasting beige head. PNW grapefruit piney hoppy aroma. Yep it’s a good West Coast IPA clone. Pretty good hops. Some bitterness on the finish. Lychee and black pepper on the finish. A little bit of sweetness maybe from some crystal malt. Lovely hops though and I can’t believe this is coming out of Ireland compared with a lot of the beers from Eire. Very sessionable. Ho ho ho.
