COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A hop lover’s delight! In the India pale ale tradition, this brew is very hoppy in both aroma and flavor from the generous amounts of Cascade hops used in brewing. Look for a medium to full body and golden straw color.

Bright clear copper with a rocky white head, plenty of carbonation bubbles rising through the drink, and big swirls of lace. This is a rather mild IPA with slightly bitter malt joining mild hops. The taste stays consistent through the finish. Drinikable, not memorable.

Poured copper color. Smelled like floral hops, also got some citrus/grapefruit. Naturally, it is quite bitter and left a bitter aftertaste. Quite a bit of carbonation and light body.

Citrus Grapefruit hops to begin and finishes bitter, sort of like the rind of that same grapefruit. Pale in color (as the name implies). Not the best ipa out there, but it will do. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Idiosynkrasie (3234) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - OCT 7, 2012
355ml bottle. Clear amber colour with small, frothy, minimally lacing, white head. Fruity aroma has notes on tangerine, peach, lychee. Taste is minimally biting hoppy, slightly metallic, a grainy touch, unspecific fruity undertones. Too mainstreamed and "filtered" in the literal sense IMO.

Bottle to pint. Looks decent; a transparent orange with white lacing. Smells alright, but definitely malt-forward for an IPA. Tastes like it smells, but thin and unbalanced, with an average (at best) mouthfeel. Nope.

Used to love picking up the 12 beers of Christmas at Peter’s and icing this one down right away. Tastes slightly better than the pale ale. Brings back some great memories.

robforbes (2048) - Bremerton, Washington, USA - AUG 18, 2012
pours a semi-cloudy amber-orange with a very small off-white head, and some lacing. smell is faint, hops, floral, caramel, and roasted malt. taste is a bit watery, hoppy, some citrus, some caramel, and a little malt in the back. ends a little bitter. not as bitter as i would expect from an IPA.

Thin and watery. Almost no aroma to speak of. Taste had no complexity, just straight pine. Disappointing.

KyotoLefty (5895) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JUL 31, 2012
UPDATED: MAR 7, 2013 Draught at Antenna America. Malty nose, ok but not much going on. Light citrus and sweet. Dark gold with a fine head. Sweet flavor of oranges and metal. Typical but not distinctive. Passable.
