COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

ARH (152) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 15, 2014
UPDATED: MAR 8, 2014 On tap poured into a shaker. Very strong pine and resin aromas at the start with some subtle grapefruit and other citrus and tropical fruit aromas (maybe over ripe peach or apricot? ). Pours a clear golden color with a white head the subsides to a thin layer, but laces wonderfully. The tongue is hit by medium bodied beer with active carbonation and a heavy piney, resin citrus bitter flavor. A slight caramel sweetness peaks through the bitter about mid sip, but the pine bitterness returns at the finish and sticks around for the dry aftertaste that mellows after a short while.

Cantabrian (762) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - FEB 15, 2014
Wonderful aroma of lychees and chompu/rose apples. Nice orange gold, with a healthy white head. Flavours more on the bitter side, with grasses and grapefruits, and still with a trickle of rose water. In spite of the bitterness, it is awfully pleasant and well balanced. Resinous and astringent feel. Great stuff.

Hard to find an IPA better than this. Beautiful resin-fruit nose. Crisp refreshing and depth of flavor. One of the best IPAs out there ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Creedence (282) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 11, 2014
Keg at Porters. Pours amber, with a white patchy head. Very malty nose, toffee, caramel, hay etc and some yeast. Some lighter hops and pine in the background. Quite malty flavour, nice hoppy finish. Dry yeasty and malty finish, medium body and carbonation. I suspect this keg was neither the freshest nor the most recently tapped, because was not as good or as hoppy an IPA as I expected. Will have to rerate.

Draft. A- Hops, subtle fruitiness. A- Dark golden color, hazy liquid, white head. T- Hops, heavy bitterness, slight fruit tones. P- Full body, sharp texture, medium carbonation, bitter finish. O- As hoppy as you can imagine, but still not as bitter as you would expect. A definite waker upper but still very drinkable. A solid rich hoppy flavor.

Delicious - a GREAT pale - herbal dominant with superb bitterness - really an APA rather than an IPA - must get more! Hey - in Australia a bottle costs $9 per bottle.. You yanks don’t know how lucky you are.
