A rather enjoyable IIPA from Shipyard, and clearly a notch above their b-wine. The beer pours out a clear golden/amber body with a rather large creamy beige head. Aroma is decidedly grapefruits but there’s also enough biscuity/caramel malts to really notice. The alcohol also asserts itself in the aroma. The flavor is mostly sweet for a IIPA. Lots of residual sugars left behind it seems. Grapefruit keeps things in check with the style department and some floral notes really escape, which was nice. Finish is hot with alcohol with a tight bitterness. Pretty nice.

Miksu (5047) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - OCT 25, 2009
0.65 l bottle at Stockholm Beer Festival 2009. Hazy amber color. Sweet and juicy hop aroma with mango, apricot and lemon. Sweetish firmly bitter flavor with toffeish malt and fruity hops featuring mango, apricot and lemon. Fairly thick body, not very drinkable. I would prefer this dryer.

bottle at Ft Wayne tasting - Pours copper and has a big citrus hop aroma. There’s some good malt backbone lending some sweetness to the flavor and of course the citrus hops are in the forefront. It’s a straightforward imperial IPA and pretty well done.

Bomber thanks to Marc! Poured hazy medium orange with a short, thicker cap of off-white head. The aroma picked up warm orange meat and caramel sweetness accented by peppery notes, orange zest, and a touch of pine.. warmth brought out honey on the back.. quite juicy and enticing. The flavor was nearly as juicy, rocking honey, bready notes, and oranges at the core.. black peppery alcohol, pine resin, and floral bitterness around.. finished with lots of orange character (both sweetness and bitter zest) and warmth. Heavier-bodied with moderate carbonation on the palate.. balance was solid, just skewed a little bit toward sweetness in the middle and sharpness at the back.. quite well done overall

From bottle in pint glass. Aroma: Clean, Citrusy and Cascade hops. Appearance: Clear and copper. Extremely thin head that leaves lots of tiny bubbles on the side of the pint glass. Flavor: Definitely 9.25% ABV. Massive. Taste like orange/grapefruit and pine sap. Sticks with you for a while. Palate: Alcoholic. Tears the enamel off your teeth and the moisture off your tongue. Overall: Not a bad IPA, quite unusual. More citrusy and alcoholic, but I had no trouble drinking it.

Bottle at LCRBM 5 at Kulminator. Clear orange, lasting beige head. Bit boozy, some decent hops, bit burnt and toasty in the flavour. OK.
