COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A base of pale, Munich, and Carapils malts is just enough to contain the massive hop flavor and aroma packed into this highly drinkable IPA. A blend of four American hop varieties is added four times in the kettle and twice in the fermenter for a complex and layered hop experience. Best served at 45-50˚F in a tulip or English style pint glass.

gezugowa (8) - Kent, ENGLAND - MAR 30, 2015 does not count
Bought on a train in Kent. Ridiculously good beer for what I expected. Smelt like a good ipa, taste is much more explosive. Hoppy and fresh

Yorker (1472) - Herning, DENMARK - MAR 25, 2015

Tap. Pours darker orange/gold, white head. Little retention/some lace. Aroma of citrus/pine hop, caramel malt. Taste is bitter, sweet, citrus, caramel, cheesy hops. Palate is slick, lightly astringent, bitter finish. Iím guessing this is old.

Iím a big fan of this IPA since I try it my first time on tap. It has it all when you need a hoppy beer. Great one!

nudiebear (205) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAR 17, 2015
On tap at pub (one month after date on keg). Poured a Cloudy honey amber with a slight head. Lemon on the nose, good bitterness on the taste. Fresh palate, dry and broad bitterness. Good stuff

bartlebier (2459) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - MAR 11, 2015
12oz can bottled 11/14 from Biervana. Appealing cakey-orange pour with nice cap. Dank sweetish lemon rind cake and with hints of wet lemongrass and lime and grapefruit peel in aroma. Taste is a full bite of textured, layered and dry lemon cake, thick biscuit malts with a well-lasting, strong lime peel and lemongrass finish. Pure designed goodness and another East Coast IPA that finds my fancy.

One of the most two-faced IPAís Iíve encountered... Pours with a huge thick damn near crusty head. Clear orange-yellow color bits of hop floaties remain. Aroma is certainly of hops and grassy flavors but honestly I thought this beer smelled like shit, like that two-week old rotten grass that you smell underneath your push lawnmower type shit. I went into this beer almost cringing....yet what I tasted was damn-near zen-like. A glorious balance of citrus-forward grapefruit, dank weed, and evergreen notes that tingle with delight on the tongue. A subtle burn from carbonation and alcohol make a nice compliment for this one. A very nice example of the style taste-wise I would put it side by side against any West Coast IPA of renown reputation...but man, I have to believe I must have gotten a bad can or something with that smell. Good stuff.
