Pours hazy copper with white head. Aroma is sweet caramel malt and citrus. Sweet up front with lots of citrus and a little piney bitterness. Medium body of sweet caramel malt. Finishes pretty clean and pretty easy to drink. Not bad.

Tasted from bottle. Pours a clear orange amber with white head. Good lacing. Pine and floral hop aroma. Taste is a pretty well balanced IPA. Moderate sweet malt backbone with caramel and toffee flavors. Some pine and citrus hop flavors. Just a tad too much malt sweetness than I would like but still quite tasty. Definitely an above average IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

330ml bottle served in a pint mug. Purchased at "Il Regno di Gambrinus" in Villorba. Thanks Paolo for your great beer selection! A: Pours a clear orange color with a medium white to yellow aired head. Medium retention and many nice lacings left. Some particles cab be seen floating around S: Throws off a delicious and refreshing bouquet of flowery and grassy hops. That’s what we can call best in business. Caramel, caramel malts T: Follows the nose. Slightly sweet caramel upfront, followed by caramel malts and a bitter hoppy end. Hops are a must, as expected: grassy, piny and a bit earthy. A bit metallic sensation too M: Medium molasses body. Good carbonation. No alcohol can be felt despite the 7.1% ABV. Delicious bitter aftertaste O: Absolutely drinkable beer. Absolutely well done. Goes to my top 10 American IPA list :) [ BA Review @ 4/21/2012 ]

Look: pours a clear copper color. Bright white head. Smell: pine. Malt. Not a heavy west coast hop aroma. Taste: pine heavy. Slight bitter on the back. More malt flavor than a west coast IPA. This is more like an east coast. Feel: definitely an IPA, leaves a thin film in the mouth. Slight bitterness. Overall: ok beer. I prefer more citrus or fruit hops. But still a good beer. First drank: home 10/13/14

Transfer from BA review on 3-11-14- Served on tap in a pint glass Appearance – The beer pours a clear golden amber color with a one finger cap of a pure white color. The head has a decent level of retention, fading over time to leave a light level of streaky lace on the sides of the glass. Smell – The aroma of the beer is heaviest of a bready malt smell with some notes of graininess mixed within. Along with the bready smells are some nice earthy and piney smells as well as some sweeter aromas. The sweet aromas are mainly of a fruit nature with some pear, orange, and a little bit of a tropical fruit smell of mango. Taste – The taste begins bitter bite right from the start with a nice earthy flavor mixed with some grapefruit hop as well. Along with the bitter hop are some nice bready and sweeter tangerine and mango flavors that end up balancing the hop nicely with the sweeter and malty flavors creating a base taste that lasts throughout the flavor profile. As the taste advances further, more hop flavors come to the tongue with some more earthy tastes as well as a resinous pine. While these increases in hop flavors come, the grapefruit mellows some and a bit of a doughy and caramel flavor take its place. This creates a smoother taste at the end of the tongue, and when mixed with the nice hop profile leaves a rather pleasant “dank hop” flavor to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the thicker side with a carbonation level that is on the average side. For the mix of bready and hoppy flavors the thicker body is fantastic as it accentuates these flavors wonderfully all while the higher carbonation level keeps it quite refreshing. Overall – A very tasty and nicely malty and hoppy IPA. Quite nice.

Cloudy amber pour with a 1 finger, creamy to soapy off white head that has good retention and leaves decent lacing. Aroma is floral, fruity and citrus hops, sweet malt, caramel, mashed banana and some herbal hops. Flavor is fruity, citrus, herbal, piney and planty hops, dull caramel and some spicy, earthy notes that remind me a bit of rye, a hint of toffee, odd plummy dark fruit and some mashed banana. Medium body, creamy entry, light, blanketing and slightly sharp carbonation and dry finish. Good stuff, pretty weird for an IPA, but tasty.

Pours a hazed dark orange. One finger head, good lace sugary decending bubbles. Aroma is strong herbal pine and sweet apple fruit, along with some bready toasty nutty malt in the back. Whatever hop or possibly malt this is Im not into it, its either stale or just weird. Taste is smooth malty,sharp pine hop, strong astringent cloying bitter. I love ipas but haven’t had one in a week, unless my lupilin threashhold tolerance is low I think this is freekin bitter with a bad aftertaste. I love the hoppyest of the hoppy but this just has a bad messed up malt hop bitter finish. Blech, not liking this one. Taste assy. Maybe an overpowering herbal I don’t like. Although the hops are strong and bitter, im just not going for the taste of them, its not very often I disagree with hops but its just not good.
