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.

This beer pours a cloudy dark orange with a minimal white head. This beer starts weet, hoppy and with a bit of pineapple. There is a nice bit of citrus and the beer finishes with mild bitterness.

35,5cl bottle from a trade with Cunningham - thanks! Hazy amber with an off-white head. Moderate hoppy aroma with tropical fruits, caramel, malt and hints of pine. Sweet and malty with noticable hoppy notes. Quite okay.

fkoolen (343) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - OCT 7, 2014
Bottle from a friend. Light amber colour, slightly hazy, off-white creamy head. Big malty undertone among with resinous, piny hops, a little tropical fruity: all seem a bit chemical. Carbonation influences the flavours, defected metal, iron-like taste. Medium carbonation, watery body, oily mouthfeel.

bkurtz (862) - PERU - OCT 6, 2014
Bottle - (best before 6/14) Pours a clear orange/amber with a small, quickly dissipating head. Nice aromas of grapefruit and orange. The taste is muddled with an astringent finish.

MichaelAwesome (4467) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - JUL 30, 2014
Bottle shared with Sabine & Martin. Refreshing and cloudy with some peaches upfront. Strong hoppy dominance only disturbed by some metallic aftertaste.

MarkoNm (682) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - JUL 8, 2014
Pours a dark amber color, topped with a small just slightly cream colored head that disapears very quickly. There is a very pleasant mild fruity aroma, some citruses and caramel. The taste is slightly hoppy, creamy with some caramel in the finish. A small amount of bitterness left in the aftertaste. Easily drinkable, smooth and enjoyable.
