Ratebeer #1,000 woo! Draft sample at Cherry Blossom Beer & Wine fest, clear golden-amber color with off-white head. Aroma notes of strong citrus/pine hops, tropical dankness, somewhat earthy balanced with caramel malt sweetness. Taste carries on the hop punch of the nose; grapefruit, resin, herbal and almost putrid earthiness balanced with malt graininess. Medium body, low-moderate carbonation, oily, dry with long lingering fruity/earthy hop bitterness. Very tasty.

Hard to believe this 7.3% abv. It doesn’t taste like it. Great IPA. Certainly pushing to Imperial but it doesn’t there. Good balance. Hops are citrusy crisp but weighty which this needs to cover that ABV. Does it so well though. NIce light honey sweetness. Label is not my favorite.

Derek881 (1044) - Prague, CZECH REPUBLIC - JUL 20, 2012
Poured from the bottle into a trumpet glass to drink. The beer had a semi-cloudy amber color with an average sized foamy white head with good cling and lacing. The aroma featured citrus hops, with touches of pine and straw, and a very light malt presence. Its taste had a bitter citrus flavor with a grainy component, and a slight sourness as well. It was a very dry beer with average carbonation to go with a full body and mouthfeel.

12 oz bottle pours a clear orange with two-finger white head and good lacing. The smell hit me a foot away before the first sip. Aroma is full of caramel malts, citrus hops (especially grapefruit), and some good dank earthiness. Taste is bitter at the start and finish, with lots of sweetness in the middle. Body is medium with below average carbonation. Mouthfeel is slightly sticky and alcohol is mostly hidden. A well balanced IPA I’ll be sure to try again.
