Amber with a lasting white head. Aroma has grassy hops and mango. Dryish and bitter flavour with so much grassy hop flavour it gets cloying - and boring

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, bought @ Havnens Vin og Tobak, Vejle.
Pours a deep amber with a big, frothy, off-white head. Wonderful hoppy aroma, very chewy. Pepper, fruity, melons, flowers. Medium carbonation, nice dry and slightly creamy mouthfeel. Flavour is initially caramel malty, some fruity hoppiness, then turns wonderfully dry and bitter. Great to see an American IPA with lots of bitterness and not only hoppy flavours.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Beer Geek. Slightly hazy copper color with a decent fine white head. Fruity citrus over lightly roasted malt. Medium body with creamy carbonation. Flavor is very malty, though not sweet, with a lot of floral hop. Finishes a bit astringent with some decent bitter. Not getting citrus, but it sure is something hop. Grapefruit overridden by roasted malt? Starting to seem that way.

It is beautiful, hazy, orange-red with a huge, creamy head. The aroma has notes of fruity hops, citrus, light spruce, malt and caramel. The flavour has a light sweetness, a lot of fruit notes like melon, mango, papaya, citrus, but also caramel. The finish has a nice, dry, citrussy bitterness, and it is a really nice IPA.
