Solid ipa, prominent sweet malt and biscuit overlaid with sugary hops. A lovely peach gold with a lively head.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Good loking, dark amber color. Frothy head, vanishing quickly. Very refreshing aroma, sweetness from hops, but I would say it’s pineapple. Tastes fruity and a little bit of caramel notes. Mostly pineapple flavor, fading into medium bitterness. Very weak malty flavor. Some kind similar to First Frontier IPA but not well balanced. But on the other hand, well drinkable. Really worth a try.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Rated on 01-14-2014 (Bottle) This beer’s Appearance is a large fizzy ivory head that mostly diminished, transparent body, slow rising carbonation, one ring of lacing, and a golden hue. The Aroma consists of malt, caramel, hints of fruit, yeast, earthy and pine hops. The Taste mimics the Aromas. The Palate is fairly smooth and this beer is medium bodied. In conclusion, if you enjoy hoppy tasting beers, then this beer is worth trying.

IBU rating for this would be 100 and its something like a very sweet red grapefruit for the smell and it’s crust for taste , meaning candyland for the nose vs. punishing the tongue by not giving it candy, thus having bittercandy instead. Proper simcoe as it is.

I get big notes of grapefruit and orange. Very tasty. Very big malty back bone to this IPA some biscuity flavours in there and some really good malt depth to support the hop use

Draught@Mikkeller & Friends, Copenhagen. Copper color, white head. Hoppy aroma. Perfumy hop flavor with lots of grapefruit. Medium-full body, medium carbonation. Well-crafted, but too strongly hopped for my flavor.
