Our IPA is bright copper in color with a wonderful citrusy hop aroma. Island Hoppin has a great malty body that pairs well with the dry hoppy finish. IBU’s 50, Warrior, Cascade, Willamette.

slowrunner77 (9948) - Reno, Nevada, USA - JUN 10, 2015
bottle from western NY: kind of a throwback ipa - maybe a little English style leaning. ok in that respect, but a little too balanced and/or restrained for my taste. I like IPAs to be a hop showcase.

ben4321 (5646) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - MAY 8, 2015
Location: 12 oz bottle from Buy Rite, 5/8/15

Aroma: Light hops on the aroma, some pale malts, caramel, and some herbal notes
Appearance: The color is orange, pretty much clear, with a small head and light lace
Flavor: Tastes pretty similar, balanced, light sweet and light bitter too
Palate: It has a solid overall feel, soft carbonation, and a somewhat dry finish
Overall Impression: This beer is fine, but it isn’t particularly good. I doubt I’ll remember it at all the next time I see it on a shelf.

RRistow12 (697) - Lewis Center, Ohio, USA - MAY 8, 2015
Tasted from bottle. Pours a clear amber with whitish head. Aroma is malt dominated with caramel, toffee, earthy notes with a bit of tropical fruit and floral notes. Moderately sweet overall with a moderate bitterness. A little to malt dominant on the flavor. Caramel, toffee, biscuits, maple syrup, floral, earth. Overall a below average to average IPA. But much better than most of the Caribbean island beers. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Berard (620) - Salem, New Hampshire, USA - FEB 8, 2015
Bottle. Pours golden brown with thin head that dissipates. Medium light carbonation. Flavors of hops and cilantro. Reasonable complexity for a single ipa. Much more that I expected. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle at lunchtime on the beach on St Croix. I suspect this is one of those beers where the location was crucial...but I quite enjoyed. Light for the abv, fresh, bitter hopping with some grapefruit in the finish. A very good beach beer, not sure how it would have fared in the more critical tastings in the London winter, but we’ll review what we had....

Erzengel (7548) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - JAN 12, 2015
Many thanks to Cunningham for this bottle! The beer is amber in colour and malty-floral in the nose. It starts quite bitter, very nice, with a floralness of pine beside the not to sweet but nice malty body. Highly drinkable, very nice. Hints of citrus, nice smooth malt. Pineapple, citrus, very fresh. The aftertaste is a bit malty, not too sweetish, floral-bitter dominant. Very nice and round. The tropical-floral hop with a nice intense bitterness remains long on the tongue. Great IPA!

CH-303 (1936) - Fribourg, SWITZERLAND - DEC 22, 2014
Appearance: Burnt orange, some off-white head.
Aroma: Hops and virgin fruits?
Taste: Pretty bitter, some caramel sweetness, light fruits. Lingering bitter aftertaste. Maybe better if consumed on USVI?
Bought: Trade with Cunningham - thanks!, 355 ml
