5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
UPDATED: JUL 4, 2012 An amazing take on an IPA. I smell citrus and spicy floral hops with the sweet malt in the background. I also get that unique potent hop grapefruit smell that you can only get from whole cone hop beers. The taste is spicy hops up front ending with the malt sweetness that gives off some cinnamon brown sugar malt tastes that mixes in with the citrus bitter grapefruit dry hop at the end. The whole flower hops are a unique twist to this IPA and you can tell the difference between this and others of the style. To compare it to another beer I’d say its close to how Sierra Nevada’s Celebration Ale tastes. Excellent beer.

Bottle from Mitsuya. Pours a clear amber with a small off-white head that dissipates fairly quickly. Ruby red grapefruit juice, citrus, pineapple and resin on the nose. Soft carbonation makes for a smooth mouthfeel, although the booze is noticeable. Good fruit flavor with a big, aggressive bitter finish. A classic east coast IPA.

Pours a dark amber color. A definite malty backbone of caramel and sweet, heavy flavors. Smooth texture and easy too drink. Well balanced with citrus and floral hops. On the heavier side for an ipa but good.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Una buona ipa dal colore ambrato, Al naso sentori di agrumi e aghi di pino con il malto che combinato al luppolo da sensazioni di arancia candita. Il gusto č assai equilibrato e l’amaro, mai astringente, regala sul finale la voglia di una lunga bevuta.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap @ Patricks. More than less clear golden/orange body with a firm white head. Aroma is citric fruity with some pine and a floral touch in combination with a nice maltyness. Flavor is as expected from the aroma, fine, sharp balanced citric fruit, malt and bitterness. Fine balanced body and long lasting fruity bitter aftertaste with a slightly floral edge. Nothing really specially really except for being a really nice, classic IPA.
