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.

DrSilverworm (7958) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 5, 2012
UPDATED: JUL 27, 2014 Sample from a 12oz can at Natifest. Minimal off-white head. Little dots of lace. Hazy amber color. Lots of particles floating inside. Malty caramel, good citrus taste. Bigger body. Very little carbonation. Dry finish. Good bitter taste. Solid IPA 7/4/7/3/14

Re-rate, 7/27/14: 12oz can, thanks to a customer! When I first rated this, it was from the bottom of a can that had been sitting out in the sun for a bit. This cold fresher can might make for a more fair rate. Date on the bottom of the can reads 5/26/14. Totally cloudy golden, kind of orange color. Bigger off-white head. Medium body. Smooth, kind of crisp lighter carbonation. Kind of creamy and soft. Very nice texture. Light slick finish. Interesting hop profile. Mild pine, orange citrus, some passionfruit. Moderate bitter taste, light sweet, sort of zesty. Good clean malt bill, light on the caramel, more biscuity and toasty. Well done, balanced, drinkable IPA.

12oz can (thanks to Drjohnrock ) - pours gold with white head and nice lacing. Nose is grass with floral hops. Flavor adds caramel and citrus. Well balanced, but gets more bitter with every sip. Long bitter finish.

Clear amber color with lasting ivory head. Nice pine, floral, spicy, earthy hop aromas--great fuckin smell. Light to medium bodied with soft co2. Floral, pine, nicely bitter flavors with a solid caramel base brew--very tasty.

Sixer from Charleston Beer Exchange. Pours golden with a nice head. Nose carries some citrus and pine. Fairly hoppy and bitter through the flavor. Quite crisp and easy to drink.

Appearance: A gusher out of the can, pours cloudy golden with a huge foamy off white head and lots of lacing
Aroma: Pale malts, grassy and pine
Taste: Fruity up front then wet "green" hops, bitter and rubbing alcohol
Not balanced, I wouldn’t drink another.

Countbeer (5034) - Best of E-Town mit ein Brauhaus, NETHERLANDS - JUL 4, 2012
Another flashy American can with a good American IPA inside: Thanks Papsø: Big vast off white cheesy fluffy head, that takes all the time to settle down and shows us there is a hazy orange to hazy amber colored beer underneath the thick head. Looks good. Smells good. Lovely nose of hops (duh) and hop fruit, a gentle grapefruit touch and some hints of resin, glue and gass. The flavours are well balanced with a touch of glue that seems to be taken over by the rich hop flavours. There are fine hints of hops in all its way, bitter and fruity, there is a fine malty backbone, specially in the beginning and there are some fine floral and herby grass notes (think green grass and hay like a fresh mown field). The aftertaste is nice bitter with again floral and light fruity (peach, some mango) touches and the hint of glue seems to come back, though minimal! Low carbo, soft mouthfeel, a good medium body (with a tiny percentage of going higher towards full) and a lovely creamy texture. Tasty beer, a pity of the light glue notes (luckily not too strong present). They seem to be only present in the smell, direct taste and aftertaste. (I know it’s almost all, but it is not).

daje (2611) - NORWAY - JUL 4, 2012
Can at Olympen. Hazy orange body, big white head. Fruity aroma with caramel and grass, Taste of lots of hops, fruit explosion, balanced by malt sweetness. A good beer that lacks a bit in the bitter end.

Can, courtesy of Papsø
Cloudy light amber color, with some orange. The aroma is peculiar; there is a good balance of mild resins and fruits (tangerines…); light incense, talc; later, some mature apples. Good mouthfeel, smooth and round; the caramel and toffee flavor is sweetish, but more evident is the fruity character, mango and tangerines; there is a mild yeast character too; the moderate sweetness is a good combination with the fruits, it makes a easy-drinkable beer, more drinkable than the medium alcohol content suggests. Long final, still with good presence of bitter oranges.
Maybe a bit rough, but very pleasant. And it comes in cans!
