Bottled. A hazy amber beer with a thin beige head. The aroma has notes of over ripe fruits, hops, and alcohol. The flavor is sweet malt combined with notes of over ripe fruits, leading to a dry, alcoholic, and bitter hoppy finish. Thanks CaptainCougar for coming to Denmark and sharing this.

12 ounce bottle opened 5/9/10 and courtesy of Mr. Pickles. Thanks! Pours a hazy dark brown color with a medium sized tan frothy head. Good head retention and lacing. The aroma is primarily citrus hops with a bit of a tropical vibe, and toffeeish malts. The taste is citrus hop notes with a strong earthy/resiny component. Some tropical notes here as well. Medium bodied. Pretty good IPA.

crossovert (12462) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 4, 2011
12 oz bottle with no date. Pours a dark brown cider color with a nice foamy off-white head that leaves a ton of lacing. For a standard American IPA this one smells above average. It smells very sweet but like hop candy. The hops have an acidic, grassy, raw tone to them. I like my IPAs hoppier than this but it is a decent beer taste-wsie. Their hop selection is good, but it needs more of it. And Amarillo isnt particularity the best of the hop varieties, it would be nice if thy accented it. The malts kinda fall short here, they are up front in the taste but arent complementary to the hops. The mouthfeel is a bit thin on carbonation, too little carbonation for the style, though the drinkability is higher. Overall it is a middle of the road ipa with a good scent to it.
