Very nice IPA. Rich aroma mostly dominated by malts. Flavor has some more nice malts with a restrained burst of hops on the finish. Leans to the sweet side.

Bottle from a tasting way back, thanks to somebody. The smell is hops, citrus, pine. The look is clear, amber in color, off white head. The taste is fruit, hops, pine, and eh.

Nice english style IPA. I love how they get to balance the malty and hoppy in this beer. Nice floreal bouquet aroma, well balanced bitter and malty taste.

Oranjegoud met zeer kleine lichtbeige schuimkraag. Aroma van citrus, deeg, malt. Smaak behoorlijk bitter, zeker in de nasmaak. Melig in de mond. Mwah...

Dark amber color. Nice hop rich smell. Head is kind poor, but other than that it leaves a nice lace. Beautiful pour. Really solid beer from a small brewery that I have never had a bad beer from.

300 yen from Nagano Trading, 7%. A nice amber color with a beige head. A nice hop bouquet of citrus & grapefruit. A hint of a caramel base overlain with a clean bitterness. Somewhat astringent but nice. An interesting balance between malt & hop.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
355 mL bottle. Quite dark for an IPA. Smells British, not American. Not that there is anything wrong with that. Flavour is muddled and a little watery. Malt in there, touch or fruit, some earthy hops. Bitterness in the finish. A little disappointing, after seeing the rating.

2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. Bright orange with a decently bodied head. The acidic, citrus-blossom aroma wafts quite a distance. At first blush, this is aiming for that big west coast pop. But I instead get bit of green leafy vegetable instead of grapefruit. And the finish is rife with sour mash. (#4912, 1/15/2013)

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Nose of coffee, tobacco, caramel, earth, a bit of cabbage. Rich amber with a low head. Bitter, minerally, and tart, with some vegetables. Astringent, weird, and not so nice. Something strange.
