Bottle shared by Tderoeck @ Sebletitje’s Farewell tasting. Clear peachy orange color, small white head. Smell and taste malts, some piney hops and light spruce, hop bitter, lightly sticky. Decent to medium body and carbonation. Nice. ElManana (2079) - Scheldewindeke, BELGIUM - NOV 18, 2016
Bottle shared @ Sebletitje’s Farewell tasting, thanks for sharing tderoeck. Very malty, little bit oxidized, drinking this at 6 months age, maybe it’s too much. Not very good at this age. rosenbergh (11949) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 29, 2016
12 oz bottle. (Happy Harry’s) Fargo, ND.Alengrin (5893) - BELGIUM - SEP 10, 2016
Clear deep golden color with a small white head.
Fruity hops, mild bitterness, tropical fruits, mild ice cream and some dryish malt in the aroma. The flavor is fruity and piney hops, mild bitterness, sweetness, ice cream and some maltiness. Nicely balanced.
An American style IPA from Montana, my first beer from this brewery, depicting a pronghorn on its label - an unusual species of artiodactyl indigenous to the North American prairies. Thick ’membranous’ lacing, off-white, moussy head slowly dissolving in the middle, clear and warm orange blonde robe, almost amberish. Fragrant aroma of moldy grapefruit peel, spruce shoots, sweet paprika, hemp, red curry, dried mango, pink pepper, kumquat, biscuit, apple cake dough, freshly toasted white bread, yellow kiwi, passion fruit, lavender. Fruity but clean onset, refreshing, restrained but at the same time outspoken sweetness dominating with hints of mango, lychee and melon, medium carbo fit for the style, supple, lean mouthfeel. Some faint sourish redcurrant notes are quickly overcome by hoppiness, gradually and elegantly developing its bittering properties over a bridge of soft, sweet biscuity malts and ending very aromatic, with a wealth of retronasal pine, mango and sweet citrus aromas, and simultaneously providing a resinous, grapefruity, tangy bitterness drying the back of the mouth. Very typical modern day IPA in every respect, no game changer perhaps, but technically well done and delicate, tilted towards the sweet, tropical, aromatic side. Very enjoyable. edgallow (4629) - nashville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 10, 2016

can - bought in Jackson WY - drank in the Tetons. Terrific, simple IPA. Especially fond since I had 2 at my campsite up in the Tetons. Made for a perfect end to epic hiking johnnymusky (1004) - Minnesota, USA - MAY 11, 2016

12 Fl. Oz. Bottle. Pours clear, orange in color, nice white head and nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is of hops (pine and citrus fruits) mixed with a touch of malts and some booze. Taste is hoppy but very well balanced with malts. Very good IPA, well crafted. Sully (1380) - Potts Point, New South Wales, AUSTRALIA - DEC 30, 2015
With the growing number of Anerican IPAs being available in Australia this ranks very highly. A good orange hue in the pour and mellow notes of pine resin. There is a bit of same same with the simcoe and amarillo hop flavour but these are well balanced by the malty finish. A really good go to IPA. varanid99 (1399) - AUSTRALIA - DEC 24, 2015
Orange gold pour with a decent white head. Malt, resin and citrus aroma. Taste is pine, resin, sweet malt and some tropical fruit.
