COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Ready to buck convention? We took the traditional IPA, originally shipped from Englad to India in the 1700s, and made it bolder and more flavorful - American style. We've added new varieties of highly aromatic American hops to create a distinctive bitterness profile and an incredible hop character. Hop on, hold tight, and enjoy the ride!

KajII (799) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - FEB 11, 2013
12oz Bottle. The pour was a cloudy orange with an average (1-2 finger) white frothy head that was mostly lasting, reducing to a thick frothy film and large collar with excellent sheeting of sticky lacing. The aroma was of a grain malt, floral and citrus hops and a sweaty yeast with notes of caramel and citrus (grapefruit and orange peel). The taste was moderately bitter with a light caramel sweetness pretty much throughout, progressing slightly with a nice grapefruit hop presence taking over along with a bitter citrus peel ending. The flavor lasted an average time proceeding the swallow with a light hoppy grapefruit taste left behind to linger a little longer. Mouthfeel was light in body and dry in texture with a carbonation that was just beyond mild in intensity. Overall I found this to be a very well balanced IPA, nice and hoppy with a tasty light sweetness and a not so overbearing bitterness... www.facebook.com/KAJIIsBeerReview

DuffMan (7331) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 26, 2015
On tap @ Capones, an evening destination for TvMs Bachelor Party NW Ale Trail Expedition. Orange body, off white head, delicate lace. Sweet citrus hop profile, tangerine, with resinous undertones. Nice firm bitterness without astringency, lending to voluminous drinkability.

MrsWylie (9) - Sitges, SPAIN - MAR 14, 2015 does not count
Gold to light amber. Small head. Grass, pine, resin on the nose. Good carbonation and body but a slight watery/mineraly taste. Palate - well-balanced versus one-dimensional - jurys out. Burp! Excuse me.

Cimbasso (328) - - FEB 14, 2015
Sampled from a bottle. This a very well-made IPA with a golden colour and a thick white head. Sweetish caramel taste, but balanced by huge amounts of hops, with citrus, peach and pine flavours. Good body and long, lingering after taste. An excellent brew.

Pours clear golden with a thick white head. Citrus & pine aromas, hoppy, citrus taste, peaches, lingering bitterness. Slight caramel sweetness. Nothing mindblowing, but a really nice solid IPA.

UPDATED: FEB 6, 2015 Butelka, 0,33 l. Aromat i smak jasnych owocw tropikalnych, mango, grapefruit. Goryczka średnia ku wysokiej, niezalegająca. Niesamowicie orzeźwiające, bardzo pijalne, Aż żal, że miałem tylko jedną, małą butelkę. Piwo może uchodzić za wzr stylu. Zakupione w Cardiff, Walia.

Bue en bouteille de 355ml. IPA proche de la perfection. Nez ananas, équilibre parfait, pas sucrée et finale fruitée. Very good !
