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.

Amber golden clear body capped by an off-white head. Floral, caramel and pine aromas. Malt and hop profiles produce good balance of flavors.

Backlog. Bottle at Tröls. One of my favourite American IPAs mostly because we’re not sacrificing any malt-aromas in order to bring forth the hoppiness.

chinchill (1602) - South Carolina, USA - FEB 18, 2014
undated 12 oz bottle served in a lager glass. Pours deep-amber. The tan head is large, creamy and thick for the style. Plenty of sticky lacing is left on the glass. Smell: Aromatic, with a surprising amount of bread dough mixed in with the floral/earthy hops and toasted malt. Rather malt forward for an IPA. T: The taste is rather malty, like the smell, but the spicy/earthy hops come through more. M: Medium bodied; nicely smooth; slightly dry finish. Excellent for style. O: A solid IPA coming from a reliable, if rather mainstream, brewer. Hoppiness will not satisfy some hop heads. {lightly revised with fresh bottle in Feb. 2014)

Caramel and grapefruit flavors, with only moderate hop bitterness. Hints of sour apples and toasted grain. Good flavors, just not enough of them. Very average IPA.

Derek881 (996) - St. Petersburg, Florida, USA - FEB 5, 2014
Poured from the bottle into a pint glass to drink. The beer had a semi-hazy dark amber color with a large, creamy, light tan head with good retention, cling, and lacing. Its aroma featured a blend of light caramel malt and sugar mixed with some earthy, grainy, and light citrus hop flavors. The beer was mostly bitter with flavors of grain and citrus, along with some straw and a lightly sweet maltyness. The beer had a fairly full mouthfeel with a thicker feel and was a bit dry with ample carbonation. Thank you to Siobhan for the Christmas present.

This is one of my favorite IPAs. Rich caramel flavors with a crisp citrusy hoppy taste at the end. Not overly hoppy and not incredibly alcoholic. A great session IPA.

Aroma - malt is somewhat muted under the resiny hops, you know this will be oily. The bark is bigger than the bite. Appearance - is a nice orange body with a full blown white head. The head dissipates, but leaves an amazing lace. Full on stockings!!! Whaaaat!!! Taste - the taste is a medium bitter, with a nice pine, some oil, and a dough malt. Palate - the body is medium, the texture on the oily side, the finish sort of abrupt for an IPA with only a mild bitter wave.
