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.

Can. Looked like the one in the picture. Orange colored pour, white head. Hoppy aroma and taste. As good as you may think. A nice change of pace from alot of the other IPAs. Worth trying if you can find it.

TorbenJensen (179) - Valby, DENMARK - JUL 1, 2015
It smells absolutely amazing from fresh hops with notes of apricot, peach, passion fruit, mango and citrus. In the taste you will also find all above mentioned tropical fruits and a sharp spicy flavor of pine needles and some fresh grass. Malt is well hidden in the IPA, but slightly sweet taste of Digestives biscuits rounded with a little vanilla one might find. I think itís a very tasty and well-brewed IPA which tastes wonderfully well. Exactly like this, should an IPA taste. It is American and thus have the little extra touch of hops, but it balances well on the edge of hoppy-ness and will not astringency bitter (at least not for me). Very delicious IPA.

Ragnampiza (740) - Rome / Lecce, ITALY - JUN 9, 2015
300 ml on tap at Barley Wine. Dark gold/light orange, pretty clear, with a huge, fluffy and persistent off white head. Not the freshest nor cleanest aroma to be honest, grassy and herbal but quite soapy as well. Mild citrusy edge in the background. Juicy and sweet at fiest, moderately bitter in the middle, relatively high hoppy astringency in the close. Slightly tropical and dusty aftertaste. Soft to average carbonation, medium body, creamy texture. Had a way better can many years ago, itís still nice but nowhere near its peak.

ICEatALAMO (1128) - Troy, Michigan, USA - JUN 6, 2015
Draft at brewery. The pour is a crisp yellow. The aroma is nice subtle hops, also crisp. The taste is a solid ipa, on the lighter side, some fruit, subtle bitterness. A smooth drinking ipa. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

MaBeer1972 (1431) - Taunton, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 1, 2015
Six pack of cans from Oliverís in Albany. Pours out a slightly hazy light honey color. Frothy off-white head that settles to a thick lace. Wonderful floral-citrus aromas. Flavor has a good malty backbone with a light fragrant layering of hops. Very drinkable. Excellent!
