On tap. Amber with offwhite head. Good lacing. Incredible aroma - mango and grapefruit. Very bitter taste with a touch of sweetness in the finish. Body and carbonation right on for the style. Very nice ipa.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Floral, pine hop aroma. Copper color with a white head with good head retention. Bitterness is high in the flavor with notes of pine and grapefruit. Caramel and toast flavors are present. Mouthfeel is medium with a medium high carbonation. The hop bitterness dries the mouth on the end. Overall, it's a decent ipa, but I don't really care for the hop combination. Too much resin. Also, the caramel competes with the hop flavor and doesn't allow it to shine bright.

Poured from bomber. Cloudy amber color with cream colored head. Malty fruity aroma. First taste is metalic. Underlying malt flavor with slight sweetness. Then a big citrus grapefruit flavor and bitterness. Finish leaves you with a dry lingering bitterness.

Poured from 1 pint 6 fl oz bottle. Clear, orangey brown with off-white, slightly beige head. Aroma of hops and subtle sweet bready malt. Taste is slightly sweet bready malt with slightly more hops balance-wise, finishes quite dry with grapefruit and resiny hops.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Yellow/orange color. It smells slightly fruity. It starts off with a slightly sweet, fruity, taste. Its not overpowering. It has a thin mouthful. It has a sharp pine with a harsh bitter finish. Good start, bad finish.

Clear orange with small off-white lacing foam head. Aroma is hoppy period. Tastes not too bitter, indeed some grapefruit there. Different. Strong bitter aftertaste again though. (Madrid 201405)

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
355 ml bottle, Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. ABV is 7.3%. Orange to amber colour, moderate head, slightly off-white. Lovely and intense aroma of citrussy American hops, hits you as soon as the bottle is opened. Also notes of tropical fruits and pine. Some sweetish malts in the background. The flavour is neither too sweet nor too dry, and is a veritable hoppy explosion from start to finish. Grapefruit, bitter orange marmalade, pine needles, resin. A classic!

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Very strong for an IPA, but not quite "imperial". Brilliant blend of hops. Citrus aroma, with grapefruit, pine and spruce flavors. Some orange and apricot as well, and just enough bready malt to add some balance. Great beer.
