COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Not a great IPA, but a surprisingly positive find in the USVI nonetheless. Certainly a step up from Carib and the other watered down swill that passes for beer in these islands. A perfectly pleasant warm weather IPA.

CH-303 (1475) - 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

Calisky (1120) - ALSACE, FRANCE - DEC 19, 2014
Kindly shared by Jaghana. Couleur cuivrée légèrement trouble, mousse qui disparait. Nez malté caramel, houblonné fruité, notes levures. Gout caramel brulé et forte amertume de sapin avec malt toasté et fruité pêche. Bon corps. Fin amere et caramel longue. Bien meilleure à ce que je m’attendais.

jaghana (4143) - Strasbourg (Alsace), FRANCE - DEC 19, 2014
Bottle 355ml kindly sent by Nisse666 thanks ! A clear copper beer with low head. Nose is on grain with light wet paper, seems like a bottom yeast one, no hops in the nose ? Aroma is on caramel, light butterscotch, light toasted chocolate, grassy bitterness, almond, toasted nuts, toffee, body is medium, better that the nose expected. Finish is on dry toasted grain, dry bitterness, long bitter aftertaste.

visionthing (2977) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 8, 2014
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.

On bottle with Visionthing , thanks a lot! Hazy copper colored, good foam. Aromas of caramel, malt, hops- some fruitiness. Medium body & complexity . Some sweetness, but balances well. Enjoyable ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

fkoolen (360) - 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 (866) - 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 (4574) - 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.

McTapps (4574) - Ruhrcity, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - JUL 30, 2014
Bottle from trade with Cunningham -thank you, Henrik! Pours out in a light hazy golden colour with low head and medium body. Aroma of fresh hops, citrus and peaches. Taste of ripe, fresh hops, light flowers, citrus, peaches, spruce, grass and thyme. Mild and fruity finish. Refreshing and easy drinkable, nice one.
