Dogbrick (9109) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - NOV 28, 2012
Sample at Oslo in Galway. Hazy dark golden color with a medium thin off-white head that recedes quickly. Spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma of grassy hops and malt. Light body with flavors of toasted malt and mildly bitter hops. The finish is lightly bitter with a short herbal hops aftertaste. Barely average overall.

Ambro206 (223) - ITALY - MAR 23, 2015
Birra ambrata, schiuma bianca. Aroma floreale e di frutta estiva. Luppolo in evidenza ma piacevole. Carbonazione adeguata. Leggera astringenza nel finale.

kathouse (1195) - Nevada, USA - FEB 17, 2015
The thing I noticed most about this beer was that it has a nutty taste. The hops are piney and somewhat herbal. There’s a good citrus nose. But I think there’s a hazelnut flavor beneath all the hop layers. It’s not bad, just a little distracting for me.

teorn88 (3551) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 17, 2015
Keg at Against The Grain, Dublin. It pours a clean amber color with a small white head. Aroma is big fresh citric and piny hops, with notes of grapefruit skin, tangerine pine cones, caramel and grass. Taste is medium hoppy and citric, piny, crispy, with notes of grapefruit, pine cones, citrus peel and caramel. Light dank flavours with a leafy finish. Medium bodied with good carbonation. Overall, very good IPA

Fizzy and hoppy, like an IPA should be. On tap at the Brew Dock in Dublin. A scent of citrus too.

An amber beer with a beige head. The aroma has notes of spices, fresh hops, malt, and caramel. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, caramel, and straw, leading to a bitter finish.

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.

Golden in colour. Small head. Nice bitterness up front. Slight sweet middle tones with lingering bitterness. Taste like a good IPA should.
