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.

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!

On Tap at The Tap Room. Extra points for being in the prettiest setting.....St. John US Virgin Islands! For me, this was the clear winner of their brews. Light orange with a thick foamy head. Citrus hoppy aroma with a really fresh hop profile, more towards an APA but well balanced with enough hops to keep it interesting.

Very well brewed. Too bitter perhaps but nice to drink, not to swallow it at once. Ncie to enjoy with good food.

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.

SpringsLicker (3456) - Tennessee, USA - FEB 8, 2011
Clear amber/orange body that produces an average-sized white head. Fragrant floral citrus hop aroma. Moderately bitter flavor. Not a bad IPA, and certainly a find if you happen to be in Saint John’s!

Shared bottle at RBNAG. Lovely IPA nose. Light body, herbal bitterness. Long bitter finish. New countries at rb usually menas boring pale lagers, but this was a fine one.

Bottle shared by Liz. Pours amber with a whiteish head. Very fruity aroma. Med body. Flavor is fairly tropical fruit, and somewhat floral. Finishes nicely hoppy and pretty dry. Good drink with lots of hop that isn’t harsh.
