A prototype IPA which features a huge malt profile from Maris Otter malt as a backbone, and massive amounts of Cascade & Amarillo hops. The hop flavour and aroma are huge as well as the hop bite. This is not a beer for those afraid of character.

Pours a clear amber with a big off white head that dissipates quickly but leaves lots of nice sticky lace. Aroma is rather weak for an ipa, smells of tangerine and malts. Taste is malts with a light bitterness up front and finishes with a light tangerine taste. Overall itís too thin.

UPDATED: DEC 30, 2013 Bottle via trade with Andrew - thanks! Kind of a murky dirty orange pour with a small clingy head. Aroma isnít all that pleasant - a bit of wet fall leaves and a little cardboard. Tastes a little better than it smells, with mild bitterness. Just okay, but I appreciate the tick, Andrew!

Bottle shared by GT2. Medium hazy orange amber with a small sudsy off white head. Smells a thousand years old. Carboard, paper, dusty yeast. Welcome to my sink. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a clear dark copper colour with small white head and big lasting lace. Smell is minimal im getting a light tangerine smell possibly something else but I canít quite separate it. Taste is mostly bitterness from hops without much flavoring hops and light malt finish. Nice clean easy drinking ipa, definitely more of an English ipa. Good beer but nothing makes it stand out.

355mL thanks to my big sister Jenn! Clear, deep amber pour. Smaller, sheen, buttermilk head. Nose is toffee and maple. Taste is very soapy, small maple and toffee. Chalky, minerally palate. Soapy, nutty finish.

This is a decent IPA. Looks, smells, and tastes good, but nothing super special.

WheatKing (1328) - Phnom Penh, CAMBODIA - SEP 8, 2012
Sampled at the GCBF. Quite hazy, nose has no bitterness or tartness whatsover, only sweet tangerine and malt. Flavour is a tad more bitter and the fruit comes through. A very average IPA, offers nothing special; if you take the average balance of bittering and aroma hops, this is slightly tipped toward bittering, but itís not particularly strong.

Appreciator (26) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - MAY 11, 2012
Pours a hazy burnt range with a off white/tan mostly remaining medium sized head. Inviting aroma with a medium intensity. Sweet, bitter, earthy, floral aromas. Medium in itís intensity, and aftertaste. Has a coarse coarse quality to it. Creamy round texture with a bitter, hop, malty taste. Rich well-balanced quality. Appreciated.
