Bottle from jmikolich, thanks Jim! Great aroma on this. Very balanced IPA, lots of malt but it adds to the mouthfeel. Awesome beer.

Strykzone (4497) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - APR 14, 2014
Sampled at esbls. Kind of golden hued and hazy. Off white foam. This is floral with soft bitterness. Malty and yeadty. This is as much a saison as it is an IPA. Some citrus. Decent stuff.

Une robe orangée et passablement embrouillée. Une tête mousseuse qui fait le poids. Un gros nez de malts toastés et caramélisés avec des houblons fruités aromatiques. Je ne dirais pas que cette IPA est trop vieille : je pense que sa structure est ainsi faite. Décidément, je ne suis plus habitué à ce genre d’IPA caramélisée. Avec HF et autres sublimes brasseries, on s’attend désormais à une base maltée plutôt pâle. Sur les papilles, les céréales montrent des allures de caramel au beurre. Il me semble ici que c’est un peu vieux. Honnêtement, je ne sais plus quoi penser. Je goûte tout de même à des mangues bien mûres avec une touche d’oranges amères. En bouche, le liquide est costaud et cette impression transporte mes papilles sur le territoire de la DIPA/BW à l’américaine. En finale, je trouve quelques notes amères qui rebondissent sur une base maltée bien tendue par la douceur d’un caramel tiède. Vieille IPA ou IPA maltée? À lire les précédents textes, je me rends compte que tous notent le caractère malté fort. Enfin, ma propre idée est faite : cela ne m’allume pas particulièrement. Loin d’être mauvais mais loin de mon idéal.

Bottle, Beer Moth, Manchester. Poured a clear orangey gold colour with a mid-range off white head. Beak contained some tropical fruit notes, piney hop and grapefruit. Flavour followed suit in fine style. Full and satisfying. Dry bitter finish. .Nuttin but a ’G’ thang baby.

RasmusOtt (969) - Aalborg, DENMARK - JAN 30, 2014
Pours hazy amber with a white head. Aroma is straight hop forward with citrusy hops, a lot of peachy notes, orange, tropical fruits in general, weak bread crust and some spice but overall an txtbook IPA smell. Taste of citrusy hops, peach, orange, weak minty feel, spice and weak malty notes.

Hazy yellow Brown with a Big White head. Very fruity aroma, lots of peach, lots of hops. Very Nice, bitter taste. Hides the alcohol very well, but has lots of taste. Orange and otherwise citrus fruits too. Very fresh! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

olio (5303) - Tampere, FINLAND - JAN 20, 2014
65 cl bottle @ Timo A. Stored roughly three months after buying.
Pours color with a large frothy head. Aroma is very fruity and hoppy, maybe the most aggressive hops have faded a bit but still very nice, some pine needles, some exotic fruits. Flavor of caramel malts, resinous hops, citric fruits and some faint gooseberries. Nice hoppy brew with lots of fruits and not too aggressive. Very quaffable.
