COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bold, spicy and menacingly delicious, this American-hopped India Pale Ale offers an aromatic punch and then follows through with a lasting, full-bodied finish.

Nel bicchiere arriva di color ambrato, limpida, con riflessi ramati; la schiuma avorio è compatta e cremosa, a trama fine, molto persistente. L’aroma è pulito ed ancora di una freschezza accettabile, e regala soprattutto i profumi del pompelmo e degli aghi di pino con delle sfumature terrose e di marmellata d’arancia; in sottofondo sentori di biscotto e caramello. La bevuta è vigorosa ma elegante, con una solida base di biscotto e lieve caramello, una leggera presenza di agrumi e un bell’amaro intenso, resinoso e terroso, leggermente pepato. C’è pulizia ed intensità, l’alcool (6.7%) è molto ben nascosto; nonostante il nome minaccioso, è una birra morbida al palato che scorre benissimo, con una carbonatazione contenuta ed un corpo medio.

Quack-Duck (8674) - Down South, GERMANY - AUG 4, 2015
bottle. Golden with a white head. Intensive hop aroma, slightly piney and with some grapefruit. Full-bodied, intensive malty base, lots of aromatic and bitter hops, citrusy flavours dominate, mainly grapefuirt. Lingering bitter-sweet finish.

12 fl oz, Enjoy by 24/11/2015 10:48 P. Pale amber colour with frothy off-white head which reduced to a ring but left some nice lacing. Aroma of pine, grapefruit, caramel and sweet malt. Medium bitterness, light sweetness and a hint of saltiness. Noticeable alcohol. Light to medium body; thin, slightly sticky texture; average carbonation; noticeable malt backbone and a long, slightly dry, pine bitterness in the finish. Not as hop dominant as I was expecting but decent enough. 8.

craftbeersweden (365) - SWEDEN - JUL 25, 2015
Clear, dark amber colored beer with a huge, three finger high, beige-white head. A lot of lacing stays on the glass.

A great nose! I’m a little suprice of the malty nose!
Caramel malt, bread, fudge, brown sugar, butter, biscuit, fudge and grass.
Taste: Caramel malt, grass, pine, dark bread, hops and oak.
Body: Medium to full body. Medium carbonation. Smooth, oily taste.

A great IPA from Victory! Bold and malty! I really like this.

musehead (20) - Siena, ITALY - JUL 25, 2015
Una birra ottima ma non incredibile. L’ho bevuta con molto piacere e l’ho trovata decisamente equilibrata. Sia all’olfatto che al gusto si notano molte caratteristiche dei malti, soprattutto frutta matura e miele di castagno e principalmente al primo contatto. Dopo è prevalente il luppolo che è anche decisamente persistente nel suo amaro. Nonostante sia americana, si avvertono anche sentori terrosi più continentali, sempre affiancati agli aromi dei luppli d’oltreoceano. Consigliata.

Dredd (733) - Bentleigh, AUSTRALIA - JUL 24, 2015
perhaps the victim of a long voyage. Aroma was a bit salty/skunky, flavour a mix of biscuit and stonefruit. Finish is a bit muddy, nothing to get overly excited over. shame

Un mois dépassé la "Enjoy by date: 21 juin 2015)... Je ne crois pas qu’elle devait être si excellente avant cette date. La mienne est vraiment amère et une certaine torréfaction prend beaucoup de place en finale. En peu d’agrumes, beaucoup de résineux rappelant le cèdre et trop peu de mousse, voilà!

Franzen (405) - SWEDEN - JUL 20, 2015
Aroma is lacking in hops, aroma is mostly some caramel with light hints of lemon. Taste is mostly caramel as well with some bitterness, the bitterness is a bit astrigent and feels misplaced. Dissapointed in this beer but I’ll try it again to -see if it is just an age problem, but htis should be realatively fresh. Drink date 2015-07-20 and enjoy by date is 2015-10-06.
