Our “East Coast” version of a West Coast-style IPA. Intense hop flavors and aromas of tropical and citrus fruits and pine dominate. A subtle malt sweetness brings the beer into balance.

A decent IPA. Very citrusy aroma. Not one of my favorites but it is still very good.

Bottle shared with koleminer20. Oh my. Aroma is sweet tropical fruit, some dankness, some malt, very fucking nice. Appearance is a nice light amber, opaque, white head, it?s beautiful. Taste is....balanced. I?m not getting a lot of any one thing. A little pine, a little dank, a little tropical fruit, bitter, but nothing stands out. Mouthfeel is a little light, but a good carbonation and the flavor hangs. Overall, this is truly disappointing from what I expected out of the aroma. Damn.

500 mL bottle courtesy of Al. Shared with ebone1988. The pour is an orangey gold color with a large frothy white head and some great lace. The aroma is great. There is such a lovely hoppiness. Such a good tropical fruit, hoppy juiciness, and a little bit of a malt sweetness on the back end. There is a subtle dankness on the back that I also love. The flavor is really piney and resin based up front. The bouquet of hops falls off drastically. The tropical fruits that existed become an afterthought. For a beer that started out with so much potential, it's disappointing. The mouth feel is slick and light with a decent carbonation, but then it just falls right off the tongue. The aftertaste has a lingering bite to it, but I can't tell if it's malt or hop. So disappointing. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

OOPS! One of those I had a long time ago and never really rated. Poured a beautiful deep golden orange with a modest head. Aroma was citrus heavy with the tropical fruits and malted grains. The taste was very citrus fruit forward with some pine bitter hops on the back. The balance is amazing. Packed full of flavors. Medium carb and medium to light in body. One of my favs.

Lacks the aroma you expect but the perfect IPA. Slight sweetness, hop forward and great bitterness on the back end

ansalon (2034) - Stockholm, SWEDEN, SWEDEN - AUG 8, 2015
Pours hazy light apricot with a frothy-foamy white head.. Aromas of grass, fir cones, apricot, peach, slight grapefeuit. Very balanced on the nose, nothing that screams out but very nice. Taste is likewise extremely well balanced: apricot, peach, passion fruit, citrus, fir cones. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carbonation. Very good!!

Pours a clear, dark, golden color with a large bubbly head. Huge, fresh hop aroma. Sweet-smelling with tropical fruits and piney hops. Very bitter but approachable. This beer is lively and has a long finish. Truly a great IPA.

Stumbled upon a single bottle of this in Jersey. Bottled July 21st. Less than 2 weeks old! Thin bright white head of fine bubbles. Succulent aroma with loads of ripe citrus (lemon and pineapple), some light grains and perfume. Color is a clear dark gold. Wow, a real hop bomb. Loads of bitterness that dries out the mouth. Grapefruit amd pine along with some dusty grains, lemon grass and only a light malt presence. Lacking any sweetness, this is one dry and puckering brew. Which is great if you like that kind of thing. Light alcohol presence. A little bit unbalanced for my liking but still a very solid hoppy IPA that gets the absolute most out of the hops it uses. Lucky to have found this!

Fantastic beer to receive in a trade as an extra. Need to pick up more. This ipa has fantastic taste and a strong piny smell.
