OKplus (787) - Oklahoma, USA - APR 30, 2013
A - Pours a hazy golden amber with a rocky 2 finger white head that retains well. Nice blots of lacing. S - Smells like an herbal evergreen forest with lots of floral ground cover. Some caramel malt and hints of astringent lemon as well as some dirty dish rag smell....maybe the yeast. T - A train of herbal and evergreen hops creates a dry bitterness that scrapes your palate dry of everything. The caramel malt is mixed in but slowly shows up in the middle and progresses through to the aftertaste. Some doughy bread like characters try to come out. Finishes first like chewing on dry bitter herbs then switches to some bready flavors. M - Light to medium. This beer actually holds a special place in my heart. it was my first IPA back in I think 2001. I didn’t care as much about beer as much back then but remember almost pouring it out. I had never thought of pouring any beer out before. I never forgot that name or that beer. So I was excited to try it again after all these years and having more knowledge about IPA’s.... It seemed to be as gross as the first time. There’s a non-diluted medicine character about it that I just can’t enjoy. Serving type: bottle 01-25-2011

jjsint (1130) - Ely, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - MAR 20, 2015
Bottle at the Free Press, Cambridge. Orange, cloudy, thin wispy head. Citrus soda (more Squirt than Mt Dew), slight resinous aroma. Bitter taste, flavourless. Medium body. Heavily carbonated. Not particularly good, but pleasant enough in its own way.

rblib2 (5) - - MAR 19, 2015 does not count
Golden IPA that is very crisp with moderate carbonation. 1 finger head that does not leave much lacing. If you like a lingering bitterness, this one’s for you. Finishes nice.

Amarga, mas bem gostosa. Se não fosse o preço, daria pra beber várias. A coloração é um dourado bem amarelo.

Bought it in a very cozy place in Moscow as a very tasty beer but actually was disappointed. The beer is ok, but no more. Too flat and way too bitter
