COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This mammoth IPA is defined by generous quantities of premium hops and balanced with a premium selection of English malt. Traditionally unfiltered IPA’s lead to the slight haze appearance. An extensive dry-hopping process contributes to its very intense floral hop aroma. The IPA is unfiltered and as always, unpasteurized to leave all the natural flavors intact. If you’re at the brewery you’ll be able to guess what style of beer every brewer has in his hand. THE BEER YOU'VE BEEN TRAINING FOR!

omhper (19230) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - AUG 18, 2004
Bottled, thanks SpringsLicker! Hazy golden. Rich grapefruit aroma. Sweet with clean but firm mouthfeel. Pine needle finish with good bitterness. A well balanced IPA, it’s shortcomings in malt character are well masked behind the hops.

harrisoni (13280) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - NOV 14, 2005
Bottle at London Gathering Nov 05. Copper colour with thin white head. Ooops another intense US IPA with grapefruit and hop. OK in mouth, but doesn’t live up to its nose. Bit thin in mouth and on finish. This rather lets it down

UPDATED: MAY 22, 2014 Bottle. (trade with Papsoe) Clear, golden-copper color with a beige head. Pine, hops and tropical fruits in the aroma. The flavor is quite bitter and fruity, with pine and tropical fruits, the latter dominating the fruit-part. Full body. Very piney finish with a distinct bitterness. I find it a bit on the hoppy side, but it is a nice beer. Rating: 7-4-7-4-15-3.7. 070608

On tap at the Atlanta airport taphouse, terminal A. Looking cute in the glass, even though there’s not much head, just a thin layer of off-white bubbles. Some lacings. It’s deep golden in color, and clear. The aroma is peachy and citrusy, sure nice, but lacking some of the freshness found in the Lowryder IPA. Still not much malts to be detected. The flavor has a nice bitterness, with citrus peel and resins, and a little malty sweetness as a backdrop. Full body and a soft carbonation. Bitter, resiny finish. I could easily drink more of this, but it’s far from the most exciting IPA I’ve had. 140511
