slang (654) - Columbia, South Carolina, USA - AUG 25, 2007
bottled. Hazy pale orange (piss) colored ale. Nose of lite grass w/ alcohol. The taste here is slightly off-putting w/ that grassy thing going on thru the end. The hops never bite & are far from crisp. Watery. A tad stronger pale ale that is close to being drinkable. Redhook flops again.

Robeperse (47) - - SEP 23, 2016
Bottle 0.33- Colore dorato, schiuma cremosa sottile. Al naso aromi floreali ed erbacei. Al gusto I luppoli sono in primo piano ma più che una IPA mi sembra una APA. I luppoli americani si sentono ma sono molto armoniosi e rendono la birra se pur aromatica molto armoniosa. Quindi sentore di agrumi, erbaceo e resinoso, con finale amaro, corpo e media carbonatazione, fine a secco, retrogusto corto e amaro. Buona APA rinfrescante e ben bilanciati gli aromi.

Chopper925 (444) - Gross Gerau, GERMANY - SEP 14, 2016
Bottle. Clear deep red-golden color, thick foamy head. Piney, resinous and citrusy hop aroma. Dry, high bitter taste. Crisp, somewhat sweet and very mighty hop flavour. Malty notes at first, making room for a long piney and resinous aftertaste. Nice thick mouthfeel paired with a fresh carbonation.

veceo (1254) - CROATIA - SEP 13, 2016
Hazy golden color, small white head. Aroma is sweetish with some fruity notes. It seems it’s not fresh. Taste is, again, sweet and malty, light tropical fruits and oranges mixed with overripe feel. Yeah, it’s definitely not fresh, but considering other votes, freshness doesn’t help it all that much...

Clear gold, moderate carbonation, thin head. Biscuit sweet, mild hopping, very middle of the road but drinkable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

nazbion (295) - Rio de Janeiro, BRAZIL - SEP 5, 2016
Pours clear golden yellow with thin frothy white head. Aroma of pine and citric hops, light caramel. Taste is medium bitter with very light caramel malt sweetness. Quite dry, light bodied, lively carbonation.

Hermod (6417) - Vantaa, FINLAND - SEP 2, 2016
Draught @ viisi penniä. Poured golden color with a thin white head. Farmhouse notes, strawberries, hops. Flavor has barnyard, strawberries, old hops. Not in best shape I’m afraid.

Maris (1384) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - SEP 1, 2016
From a 355ml bottle on 1/9/2016. Pours a clear light golden with a small head. The nose features lots of caramel malt with some pine. The taste is dominated by more caramel malt and some biscuit too, a good dose of sweet fruit, some honey, with some reasonably firm hops balancing things out (the dry hopping is evident). Quite light bodied with average carbonation. This is a slightly unusual, very malt forward IPA, but I really enjoyed it. Don’t get why this is so lowly rated on here.

BeardedAvenger (207) - Addlestone, Surrey, ENGLAND - AUG 22, 2016
On tap at Rose & Thistle, Frimley Green. Pleasant aroma - floral, grassy, sweeter than expected. Deep gold. Loses points for a weak head. Initially sweet before the hops come through. Medium bodied and smooth. Bitter long finish, which is slightly chalky. Grapefruit, with honey or similar underneath. I enjoy.

Bottle from Hy-Vee. Mildly sweet IPA with nothing very distinctive to it. It’s ok.
