orange amber with a small white head that is next to nothing. strong peach, apricot, mandarin orange aroma. this is loaded with hops. perfumey citrus grapefruit flavor. REALLY bitter(almost too bitter). medium bodied. burns your throat a bit. could use a little more malts to round the intense amount of hops but this is good stuff.

(draft @ The Old Toad - Rochester, NY) Very nice hazy amber color with a nice tan head. Aroma is piney and rather hoppy with floral hints. Taste is very hoppy and bitter, floral notes are very present with a nice malty middle and a smooth mix of hops and malt at the finish. Nice and bitter.

Pours a dark amber color - strong hoppy taste and rich mouthfeel, more like a DIPA than most regular IPAs I have had.

Smells of prunes. Pours darkish with a healthy head. Semi haze. Tastes of roasted walnuts drizzed with malt. The aftertaste of a campfire lingers on the palate, but not for long. I like this brew!

From 12oz. bottle. Pours a golden hued orange with thin white head. Nose is syrupy pine with candied orange. Good thick palate with malty body. Light citrus and lots of bitter in the flavor, even though itís on the sweet side. A solid IPA.

White head on a dark yellow body. I have a taste for IPA and this one fulfilled my expectations. Obvious hoppy taste, notes of caramel, dry and bitter, this oneís got it all. Iím ready to taste more of it!

Beautiful deep amber color, nice head, good aroma. This is a very good IPA. Good full flavored, hoppy, bitter, well balanced. Itís been in the refrigerator for several months, but still has a fairly good hoppy aroma. Definitely a "rebuy"!

35,5 cl bottle. No yeast at the bottom. Great hoppy and caramel aroma also hints of nuts. Great tasty flavour of burned caramel and quite hoppy. Ends up very dry and bitter. A very nice tasty IPA endeed.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz bottle. Clear amber body with a good white head. Aroma of hops and grapefruit, with an evergreen aroma with it. Flavor began with hops, grapefruit and a subtle caramel sweetness, but evolved into a bitter, evergreen flavor that I didnít love. Palate is ordinary. A good IPA, but not one of my favorites.
