Bottled at Stockholm Beer Festival 2010. Golden to copper color. Sweetish hoppy aroma with petrol, lemon and toffee. Nice tropical fruity hop flavor with lemon and mango. Strong fruity-bitter finish.

Roastier IPA with nice sharp malting. Warms and finishes syrupy and oak. Coats like a heavier barleywine but with very nice crisp hops. Pretty tasty

Orange peel and pineapple aroma. Hazy amber, thin head. Overripe grapefruit, pleasantly bitter. Biscuity wheat finish. There’s a chemical flavor that exists throughout, between paint and formaldehyde.

Very slightly hazy golden with a nice head and some lacing... Piney hop citrus tropical fruit aroma.. Smells better than it tastes, a little fruity... Dry good balance not too hoppy or malty....

12oz btl. Pours a clear golden with a finger of white head. Has a mildly citric and pine aroma. Great citris quality with a great crescendo of lasting hop bitterness. Awesome.

It’s like a citrus orange bomb went off in my mouth. Great orange aroma and taste. Perfect amount of malt to balance but not take away from the hops. Nice clean yeast.

This 12 oz bottle poured pale golden into my tulip, raising a nice but dissipating head that left ample lacing on the glass. This is a really nice ipa, a bit less sweet than the brewery’s standard ipa, but still plenty malty to balance the hops. In fact, the right comp here is probably 2xipa or Two Hearted Ale, both of which also straddle the line between ipa and dipa. This one is clearly an ipa given the alcohol content and flavor profile, but its taste is big enough that you could class it as a time-and-a-half ipa without embarrassing yourself. Really well done.

12oz bottle. Golden pour with a white head and medium carbonation. Citrus and hop aroma with hops being predominant in the taste. Not as much pine as most of the other west coast IPAs. Pretty good brew for us hop heads though.

This beer pours a medium amber with a thin white head. The aromas are citrus, bread and notes of Black pepper. The mouthfeel is slightly sticky with a dryness and bitterness. This was a good brew! Not overpowering. Cheers!~
