Flaske på Cardinal etter jobb. Lukter godt. Lukter humle malt sitrus. Masse bitterheten. Kunne godt vært mer humle aroma. Helt grei. Skål

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.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.

For some reason this was the priciest thing at MacGregor’s. Out of Bob’s price range, for 11 oz, $11, more for me, I went for the 5.5. This was one well made beer and I am going to go out on a limb and say it was worth the price. Dark gold, very fruity, grapefruit and other citrus. Creamy mouthfeel, luscious, alcohol quite hidden, well integrated and complete beer.
