Elegantly traditional and rich in itsí hop character, this India Pale Ale is thirst-quenching and soul-satisfying. Each sip delivers a bounty of herbal and floral hop character, balanced by the fruity signature of our house yeast.

Reviewed 12/31/2012. Thanks to scottk1969 for the bottle! 12 oz bottle poured into a Duvel artist tulip. Notes from last nightís Skins/Cowboys game. A: Pours a hazy golden color with a bit of yeast sediment floating about. The head is a beautiful two finger creamy white head with fantastic, almost Guinness-like texturing. Good lacing is left on the glass. S: The hype train wasnít kidding about this having an amazing aroma. There are tons of tropical fruits - mango, cantaloupe, apricot, papaya - that explode aromatically. I will say, this isnít quite as vibrant as it could have been if it had been super fresh or from a growler, so sadly I canít give it a 5 in good conscience. T: The tropical fruits from the nose come through to the flavor - at first. Initial tastes of melon, grapefruit, and cantaloupe are quickly supplanted by a floral, piny bitterness. Iíd like to see a little more citrusy notes and less piny bitterness, but this is still a great (but simple) IPA. M: Tingly coarse at first, before leaving the palate quickly by a good clean dryness. Pleasant carbonation and drinkability. O: Iíd buy the shit out of this if it were readily available in my area. Honestly, however, I donít know if Iíd seek it out, only because this supposedly falls off fast and hard. Still, this is very much a must try.

Eructoblaster (3366) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 19, 2015
On tap at Generations (Lake Placid, NY). Beautiful, cloudy, golden orange body with a thin white foamy head. Fresh hoppy aroma with citrusy, herbal, and flowery hints. Its sharp hoppy taste carries malty, citrusy, herbal, and some woody/grainy notes. Ends with a long, robust bitter finish. Very enjoyable.

Pours bright orange with a one finger off white head with nice lacing. Aroma is of floral hops, citrus, pine, herbal hops, toasted bready malts, and light sweet malts. Taste is pretty similar to the aroma. Has a medium body with a creamy mouthfeel and a semi dry, moderately bitter, medium-long finish.
