2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Der Antrunk ist nur kurz hopfig, dahinter deutlich wässrig, bevor die intensive Bitterkeit zuschlägt und den Hopfen weit in Abseits drängt. Kurz darauf regiert plötzlich die Wässrigkeit, trotz den Bitternoten ist und bleibt das Bier nun wässrig. Nur noch wenig hopfig, nicht fruchtig, holzig-bitter. Ein IPA, das erstaunlich wenig Hopfenaroman aufweist. 7/8/8/7/8/8

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle... Murky orange ale with a small, creamy, white head. Excellent retention. Woodsy, earthy nose with big citrus and pine hops. Mammoth hop bitterness overrides all residual sweetness, but spares a fruity, apricot ester. Medium-bodied and Sahara-dry with spritzy carbonation. Bitter, dry finish. Thanks go out to growler for sharing the bottle!

UPDATED: NOV 10, 2006 12oz shared bottle (thanks Josh). Poured a medium amber with a small sized off white head. Aromas of light citrus, light caramel, earthy and buttery. Tastes of earthiness, some pine and citrus. Lighter bitterness factor. Josh had a few more bottles and will verify if the butteriness is present in those as well. I’d like to try the tap version as the bottle version was disappointing. Like the seductress on the label, she lured me in and then let me down! 5 3 6 3 12
The butteriness was definitely gone. The previous bottle must have had ’something’ happen to it. Floral. Lightly spicy. Grapefruit finish. Somewhat earthy. Nicely bitter and would have guessed it was higher than 50 IBU.

What turned out to be a small bottle for three of a superior American IPA. Only IPA and yet so well the hops in aroma and taste. Citrus aroma i was, a cloudy grapefruit with soapy head. Mouthfeel is creamy, and grapefruit taste. A lot of hops..must be there. Can’t get enough to sample multiple times.

Slight gushing to small, but persistent off-white head; over unclear orange beer. Superb grape/grapefruit nose, in an absolutely stunning way. The most honest hopbitter one could wish for. I love this outspoken - outshouted - grapefruit flavours. Slick, light even in body, but whomever calls this watery, I’ll drown. Stunningly good IPA, amongst the best I’ve ever tasted. Big, big thanks to Dirk!
