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.

Pours red in color with a head that lasts with good lacing. Aroma of earthy and floral hops. Taste is mostly malty with good hop background. Great IPA.

Barreras (1157) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - APR 17, 2015
Pours a light yellow color until it settles into a light copper color. Drank this beer on nitro which could explain why it was creamy with a light IPA bitterness aftertaste. Minimal floral flavor, more of a light IPA in complexity as well as characteristics.

fdomig (502) - München, GERMANY - APR 17, 2015
330ml bottle. Aroma is grapefruit, citrus, light malt. Appearance is clear golden with a good white foam. Taste is light sour and strongly bitter. A soft carbonation. Light alcoholic. Dry. Nice.

Pours deep copper. Aroma is hoppy, but also balanced with malts. Taste has floral hops, nice maltiness.

Nice aroma and taste. Some pine together with the hops but it is too bitter for me....

Backlog.
Appearance: Very light haze in the deep amber to copper body. Short light tan head with average to poor retention. Settles in a light coating.
Aroma: Very light aroma with malt sweetness, light peppery aroma, tea and herbal hop aromas.
Taste: Moderately bitter grapefruit runs through with peppery floral overlying flavors. Solid malt backing with a lingering spicey hop presence.
Palate: Medium bodied, moderately carbonated.
Overall: The hop profile isn’t a favorite of mine. Decent IPA, but not for me.

danielecamo (656) - ITALY - APR 13, 2015
In bottiglia da 33cl. Aroma di caramello, erbaceo e vegetale. Al palato resinoso, vegetale ed erbaceo. La luppolatura ha lasciato solo un amaro eccessivo mentre i suoi profumi se ne sono già andati.

Jonb5 (411) - Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 11, 2015
330ml bottle, poured into tester glass. A: Bronze, clear, medium disappearing had, left some lacing. S: Pine, orange, malts, zest. T: Slightly sour apples, hint of charcoal, fruity but initially it didn’t have vast amounts of bitterness. Finished with a hit of wheat and eventually there was some bitterness which lingered, the malt to IBU balance was slightly on favour of the malt. M: Light to medium body, not too much carbonation. O: Good but not memorable, would get buried under the all the good east coast IPAs.

adasko (766) - Poznan, POLAND - APR 10, 2015
Good, solid IPA. Aroma is a little bit to weak, but except this it’s more than ok. Strict, honest, bitter beer.

mircoas (170) - ITALY - APR 10, 2015
33cl @ bottle. Indian pale ale americana ambrata, forte amaro, poca schiuma (la mia bottiglia). Buona, ma forse mi aspettavo un pelo di più.

This is one of my favorite IPAs. It has that nice bitter bite and mellows on the palate buts hangs around long enough to remind you that you drank an IPA. Victory never disappoints. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
