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.

loco_gallego (156) - SWITZERLAND - DEC 21, 2014
Blonde dorée-orangée, un poil voilée. Grosse mousse blanc cassé, relativement persistante. Bons lacings. Au nez houblonnage puissant sur le pin, fruits tropicaux et légèrement citrus. Un léger côté sucré-caramel balançant bien le tout. Le blé n’est pas décelable à priori. En bouche l’amertume s’affirme franchement avec une belle longueur, mais sans astringeance. Un peu salée-épicée en bouche. Sinon pin-résineux dominant dans l’houblon. Le côté sucré-caramel moins présent en bouche... Sensation de fraicheur. Assez grosse carbonatation. Très bonne IPA sur les fruits tropicaux et la fraicheur malgré le fort houblonnage amérisant.

Caramel, bread, grass, citrus and fruits in the aroma. Amber with a off-white head.Medium + sweet and medium to heavy bitter. Medium to full body with a soft carbonation. Overall really nice fruity and flavor-full IPA.

Orange color with medium head. Tropical Fruits, citrusy and resinous. Taste is fruity and sweet-bitter, decent bitter finish. Rather low carbonation. A nice reference-style West Coast IPA.

ljthiessen (517) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - NOV 30, 2014
On tap at Barley Brothers. Clear golden pour with a thick, soapy off-white head. Aroma is a delicious balance of caramel malt and fruity hops, some citrus zest and a bit of tropical fruit. Flavour is the same, simultaneously a hit of bright, fresh hops and a tasty malt bill. Top-knotch IPA.

Smakt hjemme i ølglass. Frisk og bitter lukt. Tydelig ufiltrert fra fargen. Smaker sitron. Fin bitterhet. En veldig god IPA.
