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.

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.

YES! This is an exceptional IPA. Enough hops to get the flavor and aroma, but not enough to make this difficult to drink. Malt and Bitter are balanced very nicely

Nice aroma with peaches coming to mind, the first sip reveals a comforting hop nose and tongue. The lingering bitter is smooth but not support super clean. Overall a great beer with a decent punch.

Versa un bel colore ambrato al naso sentori di agrumi al palato imbocco dolce per poi evolversi in un piacevole amaro floreale ed erbaceo la mia ipa preferita.

BenOver (191) - SLOVENIA - SEP 21, 2015
Pours amber, almost brown, with medium nicely pronounced head. Aroma is sweet and fresh, a lot of fruit notes, some spices also. Taste is full bodied, quite sweet at the beginning, very rich taste. A slight bitterness follows and leaves your mouth nicely dry. A good IPA beer.

R4N5H (386) - SINGAPORE - SEP 21, 2015
12oz bottle on 19-Sep-2015, poured into a stemmed tulip glass. Dark amber colour with a big beige coloured head, which settles down after a while. Lively carbonation with a medium body. Aroma of citrus, pine, and sweet candy. Flavour of sweet caramel, bitter grapefruit. Bitter and dry on the palate. Not bad, but lacking in balance - caramel and bitterness is overwhelming.

inbirraveritas (1371) - Budapest, HUNGARY - SEP 19, 2015
Bottled, 0.355 ml. Somewhat opal amber colour, finger thick and lasting off-white head. Fruity aroma with caramel, peaches, herbs and mild florals, citrusses, mouthfeel is slick 2 oily. Lingering, gently resiny and -warming, bittersweet finish. Refined and enjoyable East-Coast IPA.

fkoolen (638) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - SEP 12, 2015
Bottle at home (enjoy by 11/09/2015). Nice cloudy amber colour, big and beige, foamy head. Piny, spruce, spicy and oily hop profile, just lightly grassy and some orange zest and grapefruit on top of a firm malty base. Lasting resinous finish. Big body, medium carbonation.
