Bottle at RBSG 2010. Pours light amber, 1-finger white head, ropey lacing. Nose EXPLODES from the glass! Grapefruit, spice, citrus, similar in a way to the 1000 IBU in terms of intensity, but this is much more complex. Flavours are many-layered, with grapefruit, spicy yeast, ginger, pepper, lemon, pine, spruce. Deadly good.

good ipa, nice addition to cap off the single hop series. pretty balanced, certain hops aren’t very noticable, but nice none the less as they all definitely add something.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
A clear copper pour with lively carbonation in the body and a two finger off white head. The aroma comes of as juicy citrus fruits, resin, pine, grass, and some nectar sweetness. The flavor hols much more of a malt profile with caramel and bready toast balancing a mandarin-nectar fruit profile. Quite delicious. The palate is just about perfect for the style- not too thin, but never too thick to offset sessionability. Really nice effort.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Dark, rusty red colour with a frothy, beige head. Aroma has a very nice caramel-punch, with some sugar and bread as well. Also lots of lime and pine, and some yeast. Hops round the thing off nicely! Nice flavour with a lot of malty sugar in the attack, followed by a not unsubstantial hop-profile, quite bitter and nicely fresh. Low carbonation, medium-big body, medium duration, nice, lean texture. A very nice IPA!

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
It’s hazy bronze with a huge, creamy head, and a wonderful fruity, hoppy aroma. The flavour is moderately sweet with fruity hoppy notes of citrus, spruce, mango and caramel. The finish is slightly dry and bitter – a harmonic and charming beer.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
11.2oz bottle from Perfect Pour. Pours hazy dark orange with large off-white head. Aromas of grapefruit, pine, tropical fruit, caramel malts, and tons of hops. Flavors of caramel malt, bitter hops, light booze, some sweetness, with citrus and pine. Finishes bitter with some malty sweetness. Might be a bit past it prime as there is not a whole lot of hop flavor, yet it is quite bitter. Nice to finally try.
