4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Top of the line IPA. Ben a favorite for 3 years now solid. Pisses me off that it’s sold in a 4 pack. It’s good but doesn’t need to be priced so much higher than something like a Stone IPA. If they sold this as a 6r or in a case for a reasonable price I’d buy a lot more. Nevertheless, very pleasantly piney, beautifully hopped, and a bit more on the dry hopped end.

*Old rating from 2012. The beer starts fruity and smooth, fresh, but way too sweetish. Nice, fruity-floral, sweet.

Great full flavored IPA - great appearance, very piney and hoppy but fullness smooths it out a bit. Very much in the Sierra Nevada Torpedo range and that is a much more affordable alternative.

Nice tropical beer with plenty of hops. Typically the aroma is better than the bitter taste.

Bottle, 355 ml from Za Popent, Ljubljana, shared with JFK. Pours cloudy dark orange with off-white head. Very hoppy, citrus, floral, pine aroma. Sweetish malty, caramel with great hoppy bitterness. Full bodied. Very balanced. Was really impressed by this brew, for me this one has it all.

Last night I had an Avery Myrcenery Ale from CO. It was as good as it gets for an IPA. Well, I have to report that this brew is equally delicious and satisfying. And I’m not easily pleased. Thus beer has a wonderful hop nose, balanced malt and hop bittering flavor. A cornucopia of IPA goodness!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12.11.2014. 0,355l Bottle. Bougth in Sweden at Systembolaget in Gøteborg. BB August 2014. Dark orange colour with white head. Unclear. Very strong aromas of fresh aromatic hops. Spruce, herbs and pine. Kind of rich with both a malty body and alcohol that gives strength. Aftertaste is bitter with lots of aromatic hops, its not bitter with that dry bitterness. Kind of oily at the end with a kind of softness. Very nice!

Punchy IPA, bitterness a little aggressive and malt caramel character seems to clash with hops a little. Otherwise a great flavour packed IPA.
