The beer looked quite nice, with a clear, orange-amber body, and a large head. The smell was too mild for the style, with perfumey hops and toasted malts. The taste was quite bitter, with a metallic tang. There was caramel malt besides the hop bitterness, and not much else. The finish was very dry. The beer was among a mixed six pack of IPA’s I picked up at the store last week. I doubt I will go back for this one again very soon. It wasn’t bad, just not memorable.

BeerandBlues2 (9700) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - SEP 14, 2013
Bottle. Pours clear amber with a medium, frothy white head, medium retention with good lacing. Aroma is toast malt, citrus and pine hops. Flavor is heavy hops and bitterness with supporting malt and a dry finish. Medium body and carbonation.

pineypower (2509) - Pine Barrens, New Jersey, USA - SEP 12, 2013
Bottle from Roger Wilco. Pours out a muddy copper color with a moderate off white head. Aroma is of old vegetables, fresh cut grass and caramel, yuck. Taste is equally as odd, one dimensional grassy hops, caramel, cardboard, light sweet citrus bitterness.

smaynard6000 (635) - Apopka, Florida, USA - AUG 29, 2013
12oz bottle. Pours a deep golden color with frothy creamy white head. Grassy and floral hop aroma. Interesting flavor- bitter as you would expect from an IPA, but some roasted malt flavor as well. Pretty good.

From a bottle poured a copper color with a fair amount of head. Nice hoppy flavor with a lingering aftertaste.

BeerSkull (1307) - SWEDEN - AUG 10, 2013
(Draught. Oliver Twist Stockholm). The scent is pleasant with nice hoppy aromas with elements of sweet tropical fruits, flowers and a some caramelmalt. The taste is sweet caramel malt, but very subdued, and mostly of a distinct hoppy aroma. In the finish and the aftertaste emerges a dry bitterness with hints of grapefruit.

shadey (1899) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JUL 19, 2013
12oz bottle. Pours an orange amber with a nice pillowy head of tight white bubbles. Sprucy and grassy hops are the primary aroma, supported by sweet malt. Flavors are caramel malt, bread, toffee and a hop bite that cleanses rather than dominates the flavor. A little too sweet, but otherwise a balanced IPA that leans toward American amber.
