51/50 IPA is brewed to meet the standards of even the most judgemental hop snobs. Dry-hopping over several weeks allows us to create a pungent and dank aroma with a spicy and piney finish. Next time you want to stick your nose in a glass of hops,grab a 51/50 IPA. Why call it 51/50? Because we have to be crazy to put this amount of hops in a beer.

StefanSD (2218) - Lakeside, California, USA - JAN 31, 2013
650 ml bomber from bev4ess. Pours a translucent brass color with a small white head that has minimal retention. The aroma is big and bold with lots of citrusy goodness (oranges in particular) and a touch of pine. The flavor, like the aroma, is a blast of bitter hops featuring oranges, grapefruit and pine. The malt base is almost invisible with just a touch of barley showing through, this makes for a very clean quaff. The palate is silky smooth with lively carbonation. Finishes long, dry and bitter. Overall: I found the bitterness of this just a bit harsh and over-the-top, otherwise a very decent IPA.

Really looking forward to trying this out, but I was disappointed. Had a watered down feel to it, despite its alcohol content. This IPA is too one-dimensionally dry--it lacks depth. We will meet again Ironfire! Just not my fav with this one. 22oz bomber. (brewers, please date every product you make!)

caesar (5890) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - JUN 11, 2015
Bottle from Biernavigatie, BB april 2015 (? Just added this to their shop), large sample. Clear golden color, medium white head leaving good lacing. Aroma is soft hoppy, pine, cookie, caramel. Medium , firm malty backbone, though not sweet. Clean and crisp. They should get this stuff fresh i guess, instead of importing old ipas.
