Dark amber IPA, white head. Slight hoppy pine and a bit of roasted caramel malt. Bitter hop finish. Not too sweet. Pretty enjoyable, but far from exceptional.

12 Oz can from Total Wine and More The ale poured a clear deep amber with white frothy head and major lacing . The aroma was faint with a hint of pine resin. The flavors were muted maybe some tropical fruit and citrus. The light body ale had soft carbonation. The finish was slightly sweet and smooth. OK. Nice ABV My can had 7% and 113 IBUs Plato 16.4

Transfer from BA review on 6-15-12-
Served in a 10 oz chalice glass
Appearance – Served an orange amber color with a medium white head. The head faded fast to give only a light amount of lacing.
Smell – The smell had a big caramel sweet and bready base with notes of pine and a lemon citrus. Mixed with these aromas was some lighter aromas of some earthy hops.
Taste – A hopped bready malt meets the tongue. The hop is mainly of a pine and earthy nature in the front. A sweet caramel comes more into the middle of the taste. This is mixed with a citrus hop flavor. The sweet in the middle loses ground more toward the end where the lemon and grapefruit citrus hops intensify and leave a more bitter taste on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body is a little above average in terms of creaminess with the carbonation being the same. Both suit the beer fine, but are nothing exceptional.
Overall – It was a rather run of the mill IPA in most ways. Not bad, but also not great.
Serving type: on-tap

355ml can. Pours almost orange with a nice off white head Very good smell of sweet malts, some caramel and lots of fruits. In the mouth the fruity hops are almost overwhelmed by their vegetal bitter side. Long lasting bitter aftertaste. A bit too unbalanced.

Aromas of citrusy and spicy, herbal hops, some malt. Hazy burnt orange-amber with a lasting thin, satiny, lacey, off-white head. Dry, snappy, bitter, balanced by some malt sweetness. Light-medium bodied.

0.33l can brought home from Mikkeller & Friends. It quickly develops a huge really frothy and lasting light head on top of a cloudy deep amber almost a little brownish copper colored body. Lots of caramel and pine on the nose. Almost a little sticky and punchy like a double IPA. Sticky marmalade and lots of hops. Really nice both looks and smell on this puppy. Lots of flavor also! Not sweet at all, but it has a strong piney hoppy flavor. I almost get a little bit of burned bitter wood here as well, and I quite like it. Could it be rye I’m tasting? Green bitter coffee beans and it has this thick oily mouthfeel wrapped in a average small bubbled carbonation level. Loaded with flavor and it’s getting more and more bitter in the finish. One unique flavorful IPA, really quite a tasty and I won’t have any problems drinking this again and again! 27.01.2014

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
