UPDATED: JAN 5, 2017 On tap at Buffalo Wild Wings. Tropical aroma and a thick resinous mouth feel, heaps of citrus and tropical flavours, a hop bomb. Rex_Remes (214) - Bonyhad, HUNGARY - DEC 29, 2016
UPDATED: DEC 31, 2016 (12 oz bottle, North Carolina) AROMA: medium hops, leather, pine/bark APPEARANCE: light Amber, off white foam, mostly tight bubbles/foam with a few sticky bigger bubbles, oily head TASTE: soapy bitterness, some coffee/toffee, smoke, orange peel with a touch of grapefruit, some green/herb and celery PALATE: bitter front and back, crisp, some sparkle, solid feeling. OVERALL: not one of those overhopped renditions, so the nose is just average. Lighter flavors of citrus/grapefruit but with some smoke and caramel, good body and balance, average complexity. A decent, drinkable IPA. GarageBrewer80 (533) - SWEDEN - DEC 27, 2016

Citrus and hops, a biting bitterness usual to an IPA. Fruits and herbs with a slight taste of caramels. Overall, it’s not too special, and not too bad, so... an okay enough an IPA? Taboada (1347) - Compostela (Galiza), - DEC 26, 2016

Amber color. Big, off-white head. Aroma of caramel malt, honey with some hoppy notes. Not a usual aroma of American IPA. Strong , hoppy bitterness in taste compensates sweet , malty beginning. Gangstergafje (1142) - Capelle aan den IJssel, NETHERLANDS - DEC 20, 2016
Beery Christmas # 20 from Saveur Bière. The beer looks like an IPA. The color of the beer is an orangy golden. The beer looks clear, but is clear, but strong light shows some cloudiness. On top of the beer a nice layer of rough white foam is formed. The foam collapses quickly, leaving hardly anything.
The smell is average. It isn’t as hoppy as some IPA’s. The hop smell isn’t that special. Its mild and smells a bit like soap. There are some tiny citrusy aroma’s, but not that strong. The smell contains some nice sweets, bitters and sours. It is a nice and balanced smell. It is not very special though.
The same goes for the taste. I taste some nice bitter hops, also containing a nice sour touch. A malty sweetness balances the whole thing out. I like the taste. It is a good IPA taste, but again, not very special. No wow factor anywhere.
The palate of the beer is good. The body is medium to light and the texture is thin, maybe a bit sticky. The carbonation is rather lively and the finish long and nice. Good beer, but not extremely good.
