IMtheOptimator (1164) - Bethel, Connecticut, USA - JUN 27, 2009
Poured an effervescent amber with a fizzy/frothy off-white head. Aroma is hoppy with notes of pine and a bit of citrus with a touch of toffee underneath. Flavor comes through predominantly as piney hops with a touch of malt sweetness... bitter, clean, refreshing. A tasty brew that I thought was an APA... I guess I have a bit of a taste for amped-up ambers.

Dark Amber color, not much foam. Slightly bitter taste, with some malt and caramel. Very nice middle of the road ale, I would not call it an IPA.

Bricks (972) - Delaware, USA - JAN 6, 2016
Great reddish brown appearance w/ small amount of foamy head. Smell of floral notes, malt, with a touch of hops. Quite bitter, pretty strong on the hops, some citrus, not very complex.

Percy0103 (634) - MEXICO - JAN 4, 2016
Bottle, 650ml. A cloudy brown beer with a lot of sediments and a small brown head. Aroma is of dried fruits. Taste is bitter with a strange aftertaste that reminds me of malt, spices and dirt. Medium bodied with considerable carbonation and astringency. Very unusual IPA with none of the traditional hoppy character.

Sdaniel90 (915) - Mexico City, MEXICO - JAN 4, 2016
Bottle, 650ml. Opaque brownish with a frothy tan head and visibile sediment. Musky caramel and floral hop aromas. Medium bodied with moderate to fizzy carbonation. Dry and oily, with low to no sweetness and a stinging fruity bitterness. Intense spicy character and astringency. Harsh with very rooty flavors. Unusual ale, not unpleasant but not the most drinkable. Reminds me of cheap whisky watered down with mineral water.

Flavour is composed of toasted brown malts, burnt sugar, berry, assertive back of the throat bitterness. Some brown sugars and jammy fruit linger. Good lace. Slight metallic note. Harsh bitterness. Palate is semi sweet, moderate carbonation, slightly sticky.
