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.

HippieFee (155) - - JUN 6, 2015
Bottle - Clear almost amber hue, zero head to speak of here. Slight orange and floral notes. There is some bops flavor but not what I was expecting from the name.

UXO (809) - CANADA - JUN 3, 2015
Pours clear pale to medium amber with a short light tan head diminishing rapidly to a thin skim, patchy lacing. (3/5) Nose is caramel, mango, pine, herbal, slightly dank. (7/10) Taste is moderate sweet, moderate bitter. (7/10) Medium body, moderate to low carbonation, lingering slightly sticky and bitter finish. (3/5) A malt-forward A/IPA that is heavier on the mango/tropical notes than the piney. Sort of west coast-ish, but not overly so. Not bad, but nothing stellar. (14/20)

King_Alex_II (624) - SWITZERLAND - JUN 3, 2015
Clear ruby color with little foam. Amber smell. The taste is tart and not much more. The aftertaste is tart as well. Not very convincing.

SinH4 (1067) - SWITZERLAND - JUN 3, 2015
Dark amber color with big head. Aroma is caramel and pine. Taste is more caramel, pine, a bit mango, a bit booze, nice bitterness. Not bad, and not your usual West coast IPA. Not 99th-percentile IPA material I think. Superb drinkability though. EDIT: Doesn’t survive long in the glass, gets quite murky soon.

TedE (494) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JUN 2, 2015
12 fl oz bottle into schooner glass. Fruity chalky nose. Bronze coloured beer with lasting off-white head. Lightly carbonated. Ohh....this is full of caramel notes mixed in with the hops. Really easy drinking, really well balanced. Great finish. Hides the alcohol well, great beer.

On tap, OP. Clear amber body with low head. Aroma has caramel character, earthy, probably oxidized. Taste has high caramel sweetness, medium earthy bitterness, pine. Body is full, medium carbonation.

VictorStr (1740) - Helsingborg, SWEDEN - MAY 31, 2015
Välidgt fruktig, hel del grapefrukt och vissa mango toner?. Fyllig smak med bra beska.

overtheline (82) - Inverness, SCOTLAND - MAY 28, 2015
12oz bottle pours a hazy burnt amber with small off white head, reduces to cap. Nose of sweet mango and pineapple and some bitter citrus. Taste is quite malty and caramely with some orange. Really good mouth feel, nice body to it and quite high carbonation that fades quite substantially. Good drying finish, bitterness not excessive. Really enjoyable balance.
