Understated bitterness, less strictly than the style still very enjoyable. Worth a try. Hoppy aromas. Copper to mahogoney body, tiny head, yet with a lace sheet. Orange simcoe flavours, a little fruity, a little boozy, average mouthfeel. Bottle enjoyed with Mike Tessier et femme and Presario

paco (527) - Regina, Saskatchewan, CANADA - MAY 8, 2011
Bottle. Pours copper/light orange. Sizable head, dissipates but remains. Aromas of grass,caramel,pine,resin and citrus hops. Taste is pretty bitter. Not overpowering like I was hoping it to be. Malty body, actually really well balanced. Another above average beer from this brewery.

UPDATED: JUL 11, 2011 Rien à dire de négatif. Plus amer que malté. Assez rond en bouche. Bon...J’ai rien à dire de plus, c’est hoppy!

patricks110 (1812) - Alberta, CANADA - APR 16, 2011
I found this beer quite enjoyable. The pour is a coppery orange with a finger of nice white-beige head. The aroma is fairly hop forward with floral and grass notes, citrus and pine. Fairly malty middle with a sweet caramel and resinous hops taste. The finish is resinous with an overbearing citrus dry hop. Not a bad IIPA, but not the best.

Ungstrup (29957) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - APR 8, 2011
Botlled. A dark amber beer with a lazing light tan head. The aroma has notes caramel, malt, and bread. The flavor is sweet with caramel, malt, bread, and a bit of metal, leading to a dry finish. Thanks fiulijn for sharing.
