Cirrhosis (1224) - Edmonton, Alberta, - DEC 18, 2012
This review is from the bottle but I also just drank this on tap last week. Nice looking beer, tall fluffy one inch crown that reduced to a nipple. Heavy sweet hop aroma, ruby red grape fruit, I do hit ginger but it is faint, I only think I smell pine because I read it in the description. Aroma is good not great. Taste is crisp but not intense, highly drinkable. Woody peach flavour, hints of ginger, dusty finish. After taste lingers in a nice way. Beer seemed way better on tap but that might have been the company I was with. Brew is getting sweet as it warms. Why do I enjoy watching "Gold rush Alaska" so much. So easy drinking, Wish it was better.

Silvan7 (753) - Samarate, ITALY - DEC 29, 2014
Bottle @ home. Ambrata, velata, con bellissimi riflessi aranciati. Schiuma beige finissima e poco persistente. Aroma intenso, fruttato, agrumato, spezie, zenzero in evidenz, resinoso, zucchero candito. Complessa. Gusto amabile all’ingresso, fruttato, agrumi ed alcolico. piuttosto amara nell’evoluzione. finale decisamente luppolato. Mediamente corposa, piacevole carbonatazione, piuttosto rotonda per essere una IPA, calda. Equilibrata ed armonica.
