Big flavor, intense pine and citrus aroma. We keep the malt profile clean in this Imperial IPA to let the love lights shine on the fine Northwest hops.

Lodgewick (49) - Finland, Espoo, FINLAND - AUG 29, 2015
Bottle at home. Hazy amber ipa with white thin creamy head. Aroma is caramel malts, a bit fermented tropical fruit and pine. Taste is malts, fruit and strong piny back kicking hoppiness. Soft carbonation and over medium body. No alcohol in taste. Nice brew that lacks some fruit/malts in taste to be perfect.

ciocanelu (199) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - AUG 13, 2015
Clear, light amber color. Piney hops in the aroma, also some sweetness. West Coast style hop profile, piney, earthy and lots of grapefruit. Expected it to be sweeter but the taste is very balanced. Aftertaste is long and bitter. 9% ABV is very well hidden, making the beer easy to drink.

The taste is crisp, juicy, orange peel, nectarine, peppery, grassy, mild pine, oily throughout, lemon poppyseed muffin and light alcohol warmth with a dry, almost grainy finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Oily mouth-feel. Decent stuff.

Aromas y sabores más bien de una opa con predominio de maltosos y amargos secos algo herbaceos y ligeramente cítricos. Cuerpo medio de 9 vol fácil de beber. No está mal pero se queda más bien en una ipa.
