This IPA is not particularly Pale. In fact it’s a deep ruby red. Based on a modern American style beer from Oregon using Cascade and Centennial hops in appropriate proportions, for bittering, aroma and dry hopping balanced with a strong Crystal malt backbone.

330ml bottle from BeerBods. A very enjoyable IPA indeed. Fizzier than other IPAs I have had, but that soon passes to leave a caramel aftertaste. A good amount of hops, too. Will definitely drink again.

A small taste from a friend (bottle) @ Pispalan Pulteri during the OKS Oktoberfest. Pours clear deep amber with a medium head. Aroma is malts and fruits with some pine. Flavor is malts, fruits, pine, some coffee and hops. Pretty good.

Butelka 330ml. Ciemny mahoniowy kolor (sic!). Piana biala mala szybko opadajaca. W zapachu karmel potem szyszki i cytrusy. W smaku podobnie duzo karmelu i ciastek . Wszystkie tak typowe dla IPY smaki I zapachy zostaly w tym piwie stlumione przez dziwny posmak karmelowo-chemiczny . Bardzo ostre i ciezkie na finiszu dziwna gorycz dlugo utrzymuje sie w ustach. Dziwne...

UPDATED: MAR 5, 2016 Aroma is perfume sweet. Almost expecting to dip into a Corona "it’s frothy man". The red colour continues this expectation. The hopping is heavy but to be honest I would have preferred a fresher hop flavour and less bittering. Very harsh on the palate. If you have ulcers they will rip pen with each sip. Something artificial about this flavour.
