StFun (567) - Indiana, USA - NOV 14, 2010
Pours a dark red orange. Aroma is creamy and juicy with a slight metallic note. Flavor is nice and sharp, with a good balance of malt and bitterness. Fairly strong for a regular IPA. Not too shabby.

Reilusti ja kestävästi vaahtoava ja runsaasti pitsiä jättävä olut on väriltään samean tumman oranssinen. Tuoksu on trooppisen hedelmäinen, greippinen ja mandariininen, ruohoinen ja havuinen sekä makean karamellinen. Suutuntumaltaan täyteläinen ja pehmeä olut maistuu trooppisen hedelmäiselle, varsinkin mandariinille ja loppupuolella katkeramman greippiselle. Lisäksi maussa selkeää karamellista makeutta, jopa hunajaa. Pitkä greippinen jälkimaku, joka on kuitenkin mukavan pehmeä. Onhan tämä vaan laadukkaimpia ellei jopa laadukkain maistamani ipa. Täyteläinen, mutta mukavasti hiilihappoinen runko. Maussa pehmeä karamellinen pohja, jonka päällä eksoottista hedelmää, havuisuutta ja katkeraa greippisyyttä. Raikas, maukas ja täyteläisen pehmeä.
