fidelis83 (1823) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - JUN 24, 2013
UPDATED: JUN 28, 2013 Clear amber pour with a 2-3 finger, fluffy, off white head that has great retention and leaves pretty nice lacing. Aroma is big on citrus and pine, some caramel and toast and some fruity yeast. Flavor is big on pine and citrus start to finish, somewhere in there a decent chunk of caramel, cereal, sweet, crystal-like malt, with some grapefruit, pine, cat box and weed to the finish. Medium body with a juicy entry, moderate strength, sharp carbonation, big acidic hop bite and dry, slightly astringent finish. Really good stuff, nice, classic West Coast IPA hop profile with a huge hop bite, a little too astringent in the finish though.

Pours beautifully from big can into tulip glass. Not a whole lot going on in the nose. The flavor more than makes make up for it. Quality hoppy grapefruit and pine bitterness with a syrupy sweetness. Dense and chewy on the palate. The spicyness of the hops become more intense as I drink it more.

Surprisingly has no aroma. However this is very full in body, hoppy, and smooth. Really fills the mouth and is pleasing.

16 oz can. Golden orange pour with a massive thick foamy white head. Aroma of citrus hops. Medium body with a snappy piney hop finish.

maekchu (1762) - Hirakata, JAPAN - MAR 29, 2014
Can from Zippís Liquors. Piercing, slightly sulfury, hop nose. Medium straw color, with big fluffy white head. Massive caramel malt and hop combo but not unbalanced overall. Medium-heavy body. Big malt, but donít really sense the 110 IBU at all

KyotoLefty (5895) - Kyoto, JAPAN - MAR 28, 2014
Can. Deep orange color, cloudy, with lace. Nose of oranges and peaches, esters, crackers. Hoppy crackery flavor, minerals, oranges, peaches. Full and somewhat heavy. Sweet. Nice but not great.

seymour (1320) - Maplewood, Missouri, USA - MAR 20, 2014
Tasted from tallboy can into a nonic pint glass. It poured a nice clear reddish amber colour with deep sudsy white foam, lasting with a little lace. Intensely hoppy: grapefruit, black currant, pinecones, very very resiny and dank. A nice firm caramelly grainbill underneath, making it surprisingly well-balanced, all things considered. Itís bitter, but no way in the world this is 110 IBU. Thatís obviously a theoretical figure, based on impossible utilization rates. Iím glad, though, I prefer an IPA with lots of hop flavour and aroma, without the mouth puckering bitterness. Light-body, strong carbonation, lingering juicyfruit aftertaste. Good stuff.

Erzengel (1908) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - MAR 15, 2014
Golden and slightly hazy in the glass. The beer starts nicely bitter, very floral with a malty body. The mainpart is malty, floral hoppy, nice bittered. The aftertaste in long, malty and floral, but the maltiness is a bit too intense for me and covers some nice floralness of the hops --> 10/12/12/12

dutch23mp (254) - Mount Prospect, Illinois, USA - MAR 15, 2014
Just a great IPA well balanced and a gret pour. Hints of citrus just the perfect blend of hops. heavy on the palate but not on aftertaste. I can see why this is getting such a good rating.

Big can in a tulip. Pours hazy copper with an off-white head. Aroma of floral, lightly fruity, and lightly citrusy hops plus caramel and pale malts and some dough. Flavor the same. Average texture. Not a bad beer, but not the best of its style.
