COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our IPA is created from a base of Pale and Crystal malts and is aggressively hopped throughout the brewing process with a final hop addition in the conditioning vessel. A beautiful flowery hop aroma will greet you as you dive into this hop lover’s dream. A middle caramel malt presence balances high hop bitterness with hop flavor end to end... learn to love hops! (Editor’s Note: originally brewed by Humboldt Brewing Company under the name "Humboldt IPA Nectar" until their acquisition by Firestone Walker.)

Ungstrup (29286) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - OCT 17, 2005
An orange beer with a disappearing orange head. The aroma is sweet and very hoppy, from a good hop sort (or combination), but also with notes of caramel. The flavor is sweet with notes of grass and flowers, leading to a good bitter hoppy end, but the body is a little thin.

(Bottle 35,5 cl) Clear, warm, amber golden with a white head leaving a neat lacework. Fat aroma of caramel and aroma hops. Medium body, some lightly sweet caramel malt and then this great, citrusy hopping - more dry than bitter. Very compact flavours considering the low alcohol. 290307

Earlier Rating: 3/3/2005 Total Score: 3.5
Bottled, labelled IPA Nectar. Clear dark amber, no head. Aroma of lychee and pine needles. Dry and medium bodied with clean, hard mouthfeel. Some cookie malt flavour - but most of the flavour is in th ehoppy aroma. The finish is grapefruity, resiny and really bitter. A school book example of American style IPA: Technical perfection, but where’s the soul?

Amber color, clear. Excellent aroma: fruity hops, jasmine flowers; refreshing. Dry and lean mouthfeel, with a dry malt and toffee flavor; very strong bitterness, lean resins.
Quite fresh, and a very pleasant lean IPA.

yngwie (13555) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAY 14, 2014
On tap at the Yard House, Houston. As Yard House IPA. A small, dense off-white head sits on top of a hazy, golden-orange body. The aroma is mostly on the piney side, with orange peel, some apricots and a little malty touch. Some bitterness in the mouth, should have more I think. Orange peel, pine cones and a little malty sweetness. Full body, nice co2 level. A bit short in the end, but there’s at least a nice piney flavor and some orange. Overall, sure a nice one, easy drinkable and next to quenching. 140514
