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.

tillmac62 (166) - Gaffney, South Carolina, USA - DEC 24, 2013
Canned 9/2/13. Pours a hazy golden with a massive head that lingers and laces very well. Nose is of citrus hops that are well balanced against a slight pine background. Grapefruit, orange and tangerine are discernible. Light medium body and very well carbonated. The delicious taste follows the nose against a slightly sweet backbone. Mild bitterness is well balanced with citric hop flavor and tartness over a slightly sweet background. Tamer than their citrus ninja variant, in a good way. Crisp finish from a burst of carbonation that leaves a exceptional lingering tart bitterness and flavor. An excellent IPA. Even at almost 4 months age, this is world class.

malrubius (1639) - Willowick, Ohio, USA - DEC 21, 2013
Can from Decicco Ardsley. Fresh. Golden with slight chill haze dense lasting head and lace. Citrus hop with a hint of crackery malt aroma. Mild crackery toasted malt with dry fruity sweetness. Assertive grapefruit rind bitterness dry and lingering. Medium light with effervescent carbo. A lot of IPA around like this now and they’re all excellent. The complexity of the subtle toasted malts stands out here.

Miked1687 (608) - Buffalo, New York, USA - DEC 16, 2013
Can to glass. Orange gold pour with a thick white head. Nose is a slam of citrus and pine to the face. Taste is nice sweet malt, lots of pine, long bitter finish.

Mep3222 (395) - East Greenbush, New York, USA - DEC 16, 2013
Nice appearance. Frothy white head, and a bit cloudy. Light hop aroma, maybe some bready, malty aroma as well. Don't get one hop aroma that dominates. Get a bit of piney and maybe some mango? Nice and full bodied and flavors are balanced well. Bitter finish. Malty ipa, but not heavy or sticky on the palate. Solid ipa, but I prefer more citrus and grapefruit hop profile. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Svesse (6036) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - DEC 16, 2013
(Draught at MacKinlay’s Inn, Stockholm, 29 Nov 2013) Golden amber colour, slightly hazy, with frothy white head. Malty, fruity nose with citrus, apricots, hints of resin, mandarin and slightly toasty malt. Malty, fruity taste with notes of apricots, citrus, mandarin, toast, a soft malt profile and a generous citric bitterness in a dry finish. Medium body, quite dry. Tasty and well balanced with a generous hop character. Very nice.

Golen. Impressive white head.Wonderful, but not overwhelming, hoppy aroma. Good and wellbalanced taste of American IPA. Grapefruit and pineapple etc... Slightly on the sweet side.

Holmen1 (2272) - Stavanger, NORWAY - DEC 15, 2013
Kveldens (foreløpig beste) boks på RB-samlingen på Vistnes: opp fra et tett og varignskum stiger en herlig humlearoma opp og pirrer i nesen. Jeg heller innpå. En fantastisk rik og balansert smak som varer og varer. Fruktig med et kledelig streif av ananas. Et kultstykke og et solid navigasjonspunkt.

Medium sized white head, decent retention and a lasting lace. Hazy, gold colored brew. Nose of spice and piney hops. Medium bodied, good carbonation, lightly oily, bit tingly. Decent, fresh hop flavors, pine and citrus, little grass and earth.Slightly sweet, malty finish with a nice hop bite to carry it down. 12oz can thanks to my brother Bill draggin it up from Myrtle. Thanks bro!
