Can purchased somewhere in Rome - Italy. Pours a nice dark amber, a bit cloudy with a consistent beige foamy head which lasts almost until the end of the tasting. Nose: caramel, amber malts, roast, tropical fruits and a bit of grass. Mouth: very nice... well-balanced combination of bitterness and bread notes with a slight after taste of smoked food. Very bitter and quite enjoyable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Reviewed from notes. I poured this into a pint glass. The appearance was a deep hazy amber color with a half a finger’s worth of foamy white head. There was some light stringy lacing. The smell had a tropical fruity/slightly citrusy aromas surrounding a nice light maltiness about it. The taste was citrusy sweet with some light tropical flavorings coming back in. I didn’t get any aftertaste. However, I did get a quick dry spicy finish. On the palate, it sits about a medium and ends up giving my taste buds a nice assault as an AIPA should. Overall, this was a pretty good AIPA well worthy of having again.

330ml can. Deep copper with a medium toffee colour head that dissipates fairly quickly. Aroma is toffee and malt. Loads of malt flavours, giving way to soft fruit and hops. A little spicy and earthy. Slightly slick mouthfeel. Moderate carbonation. Nice.

DrSilverworm (5932) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 23, 2014
12oz can, picked up today from Perfect Pour. Best by 6/23/14. Labeled 7%, 113 IBU. Clear red orange color. Pours with a bigger khaki head. Leaves good, thicker lace. Medium to bigger body. Smooth, kind of soft, lighter carbonation. Lightly slick finish. Caramel malt. Spicy earthiness to the flavor. Bigger bitterness. Light sweet. OK IPA. A bit out of balance. A bit too bitter, without the hop aromatics to make that all worth it.

On tap at Roebling inn. Nice. Strong hoppy flavor with good bitterness. Pours a classic pale. Nothing amazing but solid ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Can. Fairly dark maple pour. Tons of head and lacing. Beautiful looking beer. Hoppy floral and fruity nose. Taste has bitterness throughout with a solid malt backbone. Good but I wish it was a tad sweeter. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

355 ml can (7%ABV) served in a nonic half pint glass. Dark sunrise orange, slightly hazy, with an average, creamy but not very persistent, dirty white head. Not the most inviting aroma to be honest, the hops seems a bit old/tired, certainly more earthy than citrusy/tropical, then caramel malts, some wood/roots notes, a hint of bubblegum as well. Much better in the mouth, even if slightly soapy upfront. Nice and correct bitterness (but 113 IBU ?), tiny astringency and good malty backbone. Fruity and slightly sweet aftertaste. Average carbonation, medium body, creamy texture. With still 7 months to go before the expiration date, I was expecting a better beer. So so.

Tap. Amber, creamy offwhite lace. Somewhat flowery gras&pine hop aroma. Medium light sticky body, hop resins leave a soapy residue. Unbalanced , not that fun.
