MullMan (1099) - New York, USA - AUG 5, 2009
Body is a lightly cloudy copper with amber-gold edges. Tall & thick foamy medium tan head. Aroma is sweet malt - cereal and grain, lightly floral, grapefruit pith and pine resin. Flavor is sweet crystal malt, bitter hop like pine needles, more grapefruit pith. Fairly well balanced but the profile is just a little below the mark for best in class. Nice american IIPA.

An amazing beer. Strong, balanced hops, nice color, a perfect American IPA.

emusche (65) - Wisconsin, USA - AUG 24, 2015
Pours deep copper, almost red. Thick, creamy off-white head. Big, hoppy nose along with grapefruit, caramel malt and loads of resin. Taste is piney hops, cut some by the maltiness, but finishes overly dry. Mouthfeel is scorched-earth dry; super-bitter, with lingering heat from the alcohol. It’s not bad, but 22 oz of this will be tough to put away.

Vestergaard (948) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - AUG 1, 2015
Bottle, 66cl. This i recall as one of my best IIPA experiences before rating. One month old, this one. Pours a dark, reddish, clear amber with a medium sized, off white head. Really a handsome IIPA! Aroma has lots of caramel malts, toasted malts, in general a very powerfull but still nice malt profile. Lots of hops, slight pine and slight earth. Taste has a big caramel sweetness, some almost roasted bitter toast and a hoppy, bitter finish. Not very fruity, but still really good. Pretty sticky body and a fairly low carbonation. Didn’t live up to my memory, but maybe would have done better completely fresh. Then again - good one!

Madsen1635 (447) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 26, 2015
Bottle. Hazy dark reddish pour with tan head. Aroma has brown sugar, burnt malt and feels strong. Taste has a lot of sweetness and this seems to take the focus almost completely off the hops. Lots of caramel. Very sweet

BeerBunker (943) - Burbank, Illinois, USA - JUN 7, 2015
22oz bottle. Pours amber with a big tan head. Aroma is of hops pine, caramel, and earth. Taste is of earthy hops, pine, and floral notes. Has a caramel malt back bone. Lingering sweet hop taste. Mouthfeel is light and sticky. Body is light, and it drinks very easy. Very slight alcohol bite. It’s not overly hoppy, so it goes down very easy. Good.

can8ianben (1403) - State College, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 11, 2015
Dry earthy bitter finish that leans away from citrus toward pine and bitterness. Big and boozy. Didn’t like this as much as Gangster Frog.
