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.

jandd1983 (2505) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - JUN 5, 2014
On tap at Low Country Bistro. It poured a hazy golden color with a white head. The aroma was of biscuit malts, some floral hops, grapefruit and butterscotch. The body was smooth and carbonated. The taste was floral and zesty with a lasting hoppy bitterness in the backend. Very tasty IPA.

McGarnigle (546) - Rochester, New York, USA - JUN 2, 2014
From the can. This is quite a good IPA. A lot of hops, both flavor and (in the aftertaste) bitterness. More pine than citrus. The recipe claims Munich malt, but it doesn’t seem like a lot. Slight sweetness that doesn’t quite offset the bitterness. Cloudy look.

Jaksmart (405) - Aarhus, DENMARK - JUN 1, 2014
33cl can. It pours a luminescent hazy orange with a small but insistent white head. Aroma is packed with dry hoppy notes such as grass, spruce, citrus, pine resin and has a more moderate end note of tropical fruits. Taste is moderately sweet and quite dry on the finish. Hints of caramel, resin and orange. The finish is long and dry with a strangely sticky dryness. Very nice and drinkable.

Voodoo (294) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 31, 2014
Pours a hazy deep golden with a fair head. Aroma is citrusy and sweet. Taste is citrus, grainy malt taste with slight bittering and a slightly oily finish. Medium mouthfeel, well balanced for the brew.

Vestergaard (271) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - MAY 30, 2014
Pours cloudy golden yellow-amber, Big white head. Aroma has huge, floral, citrus hops. Sweet orange, slight grape fruit and a little peach. Fairly big malt presence Very fresh. Taste is a little more bitter, and has more of these peel-notes from the fruits, than the aroma. Almost minty freshness. Alcohol is not very high, but it appears even less so. Medium carb. Extremely easy drinkable!

RasmusOtt (1065) - Aalborg, DENMARK - MAY 30, 2014
Pours a slightly hazy golden orange with an off-white head. Aroma of american hop juices. slight tropical with mandarin, tangerine, peach and tangerine. Citrusy hop forward thang. Taste has nice citrusy and slight tropical fruits. Also I get some more bready notes here and some pine. Nice bitter and refreshing summer beer! Could easily session this.

Clownoisseur (199) - Buchanan, Michigan, USA - MAY 29, 2014
Pours a golden-amber, fluffy white head...the usual. Aromas are unsurprising. Floral hops, soap, perfume and light malts. Taste is floral/bitter upfront. Some pine and earth creep across the middle before the malt sweetness blends in. Finishes bitter with a soapy-grapefruit aftertaste.

onceblind (3966) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 27, 2014
Murky golden with a slightly copperish hue under a lovely foamy white head. Lovely hoppy nose featuring sweet orange peel, pine resin, and whole cone floral hop tones. The flavor features a up-front floral and pine bitterness, with some bitter fruitiness and a earthy caramalt biscuitiness. Pretty bitter and nice.

Draft. Pours a hazy orange with medium sized white head that laces down the glass. Aroma of light citrus, mainly tangerine and orange with some lemon. Taste is initially a fruity hop explosion with a sweet malt presence. Like a citrus creamsicle in the mid palate, then finishes out with some hop bitterness that dries out. The citrus turns a little tropical with each sip and the bitterness builds equally. A very enjoyable beer. As the sips continue there is a slight peppery burn that builds in the back of the throat.
