pkbites (938) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 20, 2017
Tap @ Balzac, Milwaukee. Off orange color. Lots of citrus and grass with pine in both the nose and the flavor. Elevated alcohol content not detected. Probably one of the best IPAs made in America.

Bottle. Unclear orange colour, rocky white head, ok lacing. Aroma of citrus, orange, pine, resin, grass. Taste is light sweet, medium+ bitter, citrus, orange, grapefruit, resin, light caramel. Long bitter finish. Medium body, soft to average carbonation. Just OK, not fresh enough.

geolgau (212) - Cluj-Napoca, ROMANIA - MAR 18, 2017
Pale amber color, hazy. Aroma is nice, full of citrus and very fruity. All the indications of a good IPA are here: pines, grassy hops. Taste follows the nose, with tropical fruits. Medium body and medium carbonation, a bit oily. Nice piney bitterness in the finish. Alcohol is masked under the bitterness. Very good!

SlackerMads (3360) - DENMARK - MAR 10, 2017
Bottle with unreadable date stamp. Pours light hazy golden with a small white head. Citrus, light sweet tropical fruits and very light sharpness in the nose. The flavour has citrus, light perfume/flowers/soap in a good way, hay, sweet tropical fruits, light sugar/caramel and light heavy onion like hops. Medium body, oily texture, fine carbonation, medium sweet and bitter and oddly enough light salty. Hoppy finish. Interesting, would like to try a fresh one.

Ipa de 7,5 % abv et 75 ebu , dont le nom est une forte tentation pour les habitués de ratebeer... Malts d’orge pale, crystal et malt de blé. Houblonnage en chinook, cascade, columbus et centennial. Mon exemplaire était à 10 mois après sa date. Couleur ambré orangé, avec un tout léger voile. Bulles très fines, éparses, à montée lente. Mousse beige clair, crémeuse, stable à 3 mm. Arômes d’abricot, lichee, pointe d’ananas, jasmin. 1ère bouche souple à la belle entame malt/houblon/fruits. Arrière-bouche avec une amertume forte, mais ciselée. 2ème superbe suite résine/fruits/houblon. Arrière-bouche équilibrée, au très beau caractère. 3ème à la belle suite homogène, mais à l’harmonie inférieure. Arrière-bouche avec moins de relief. Longueur qui ne permet pas de retrouver l’équilibrage des deux premières bouches. Jambes fines, serrées, collantes en haut. Levure fine, un peu résineuse, belle ligne. Alcool correct, mais in ne fait pas son niveau, d’où sa perte d’efficacité sur la longueur. Finale linéaire. CONCLUSION : très belles 1ères bouches, mais la suite est en perte de vitesse .. ce qui est extrêmement grave pour un "racer" … Et pas de chance pour le "5", c’était bien essayé de tenter les amateurs de ratebeer, mais ce n’en est pas un ...

12 oz. bottle poured into pint glass. Can't believe I've never rated this one. Beautiful orange amber color. Aroma of pine, citrus, earthiness. Taste is super smooth with the malt playing second fiddle to the hops. A true classic indeed. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

There’s an IPA craze happening these days... And this beer should be the standard upon which all others are gauged.

Beautiful fresh crisp and bitter IPA. Looks great, nice white head and a really grassy aroma. Really enjoyed this.
