More bitter than it needs to be. Good, but a little too extreme to be called delicious. No sweetness at all. Extremely bitter hop juice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Yorker (1192) - Herning, DENMARK - FEB 7, 2014
65 cl bottle @ home. Pours pretty much clear amber with an off-white head that leaves a lot of lacing. Aroma and flavour are resin, pine, caramel, and citrus - with a bitter finish.

Kisse zavaros, narancsos szine van, habja vekony, gyorsan mulik. Ize gyumisen, edesen kezd, aztan robban a komlo, keseruen, haraposan, kicsit gyogyszeresen. Van benne egy faradt gyumi, alig bubis. Utoize keseru, gyogyszeres.

commonmac (329) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JAN 17, 2014
Tap pour from MacKenzie’s. Light orange color with an aroma that falls short of where it should be. Wow, this is heavy on hop resin. A never ending bitter hop finish...........it’s still there.........not going away. Not much for other flavors either. This one overdoes the hops living up to the hopsickle name. Not recommended.

Tap. Fluted glass at Mackenzies. Smell is subtle for an dipa, but some yeast funk. Light orange look, one finger white head. Very hoppy, but resin is too strong and too long lasting. Overpowers everything else. Not drinkable enough. I expected better.

UPDATED: JAN 18, 2014 A pretty hoppy IPA, but definitely a good one. A little one dimensional but it?s very good.
