Bottle at Monkís Cafť, Wallingatan
Bright copper color; generous creamy head.
Delicate aroma, mixing cookies, cereals, grass, fruity hops, spices; complex, original and stimulating.
Medium body strength, the mouthfeel is very smooth; there is a strong caramel and toffee flavor with the perfect balance of hops (indeed strong) and sweetness (just the required amount); the hops have a light citrusy side.
The final is very long, with toffee and a biscuity hop character.
A wonderful beer, that hits with the strength of the hops and seduces with the harmony and complexity of the potion.

Great overall IPA . aroma is slightly sweet with some citrus hoppiness. Taste has a caramel sweetness and a lingering bitterness. Color is a golden yellow with a thick white head.

Maddog (385) - Kettering, Ohio, USA - JUL 19, 2006
A very tasty and hop filled IPA. A tad bigger and hoppier than the well-muscled Burning River Pale Ale, Commodore Perry is very fresh and the hop aroma is tantalizing. This IPA boasts the citrusy hop flavor that I so love as well as a malt presence to create a well balanced beer. The finish is beautifully hoppy.

Clear and bright bronze in color with an icy & dusty grey sheaf for the head. Honey amaretto and cherry grahams kick start the beautiful aromatic display, geniusly complimented by simcoe sweet pie delight, nectary cedar pine, crumbled rhubarb and delicious strawberry scented bran. First sip affirms that itís a phenomenal bittering & flavor hop formula. In fact, itís an IPA at its cherry, strawberry and amaretto best. Balanced baby cakes with a nectar induced pine needle, dripping with cherry maple gloss. Backdrop Disaronno is aroused with a building bitterness which never detracts from the mostly sweet flavor hop impartations from simcoe and amarillo, lingering with a starfruit and sugar glazed grapefruit topicality. Supportive carbonation and balanced beyond belief. Oily amaretto smear gives a desirably thick quality to the body. Nuked, maple-like cherry crumble and a drumming bitterness resound prophetically in the finish. This oneís got fury, but itís balanced so well that itís truly enjoyable at every sip and posturing throughout the experience.
