COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Its not as heavy bodied and malty as many IPAs, in contrast the palate is more crisp and dry. If you consider yourself a "hop-head" you owe it to yourself to grab this beer.

scarletfire65 (1343) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 22, 2012
Draft at Gingerman. Muted aroma. Malty but not sweet. Gently hopped. Soft round flabby palate. Medium bodied. Must be brewed with soft water. Lacks oomph.

downender (8039) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 1, 2016
Bottle from Total Wines, Sterling VA. Amber in colour, with a decent, white, head. Plenty of grassy hops, tangerine fruit, slightly bready malts, before a dry, hoppy finish. Good.

jefcon (1671) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - NOV 14, 2016
Hoppy, grapefruit, tangerine, pine syrup. Sticky palate with a drying finish. Slightly sweet, which is a setback on the palate, but otherwise a big, bold IPA.

Disig orange l med ett gulvitt skum. Doft av framfrallt grapefrukt. I smaken tillkommer viss rtighet och grsighet. Torr munknsla.

Bue la pression. Belle couleur orange/ambre, mousse qui a des ballz of steel, nez assez discret. Idem en bouche, cest assez lger de partout. Pas trop amre, un peu caramlise, un peu de rsineux, carbo juste comme il faut. Bref, cest pas de la folie furieuse mais a passe dlicieusement bien.

herrklemann (121) - AUSTRIA - OCT 11, 2016
Pours a nice hazy amber with a big, frothy white head. Aroma of pine, lemon zest, cereal, grapefruit, more resiny pine, light brown sugar. Taste starts out moderately sweet, turning into a medium, dry hop bitterness. The dry, bitter finish brings back grapefruit and pine. Medium, slender body with an oily feel. Medium carbonation.
Had this a few times after I encountered it by accident at Brot & Spiele Graz (its not always available). All four bottles I have had across Europe varied for a bit. When its fresh, the hops really shine. While the malt backbone is pretty lean, it still backs up the hops with a toasty malt aroma and feeling in terms of body. When its not that fresh anymore, the hops fade into the malt body - its less crisp than expected, but still super dry. Really good IPA, can be a bit harsh. But I always enjoyed it quite a bit. Maybe because its so hard to get around here.

Bottle shared. Nice juicy fruitiness, decent malt backbone, fairly classic stuff yet solid ipa. A bit too simple maybe in this new era of galactic whales and unicorns.

chinchill (4422) - South Carolina, USA - SEP 24, 2016
12 oz bottle from SC with a bottling date of Jan. 2016. Hazy copper body with an over-sized,fluffy off-white head. Exceptional retention and lacing. Some sediment stuck on the bottom of the bottle. Mildly hoppy aroma, likely subdued by the thick head. Moderately strong flavor with medium-high bitterness for style. Good mouthfeel excepting for some mile hops-alcohol harshness.

willisread (2800) - Owensboro, Kentucky, USA - SEP 10, 2016
Bottle shared. Thanks Gregg! Light flavors on the nose, caramel, maybe some faint pine. Clean and well-balanced. Very malty with a touch of citrus on the palate. Some light cocoa towards the end. Nice old school IPA.

Tap @ Himmeriget. Medium brown, reasonable head. Boiled sweet hop aroma. Sweet biscuit hop flavour. Bitter toffee hop aftertaste. Another good IPA.
