hellomynameis (877) - Mayer, Minnesota, USA - MAY 6, 2006
Orange colour with some brown/dark golden in there as well. Pillowy head that is kind of soapy. Do I even need to say it? Hoppy arouma, but not too over powering. Mostly resin and a bit of floral. Very piney hop taste, throw in some citrus as well. Nice base of malt, but nothing especially interestign or note worthy. Padron4KM (810) - Chandler, Arizona, USA - MAY 6, 2006
12 oz bottle, bottled on date not notched out on the lable.
clear goldish orange, creamy off white head. head slowly collapses leaving lovely rings of lace around the glass.
Aroma is fruity and piney. fresh and clean. ugly (3) - toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 5, 2006 does not count
Grapefruity flavors wrapped in a velvety smooth malt body. a little spice in there as well. Tasty.
The scent is akin to what I imagine a douche commercial would smell like, and I mean that in the best way possible. Pours sunset orange with a quickly dissipating head the colour your landlord paints the new apartment when he feels white is ‘too austere’. So smooth the bottom of the glass is reached much too quickly. The entire shipment of this beer to Toronto sold out in 3 days. Makes you wonder if the grassmunchers over at the LCBO will ever understand the first lecture given to business majors in economy 101. mcpuddle (2) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 3, 2006 does not count
Bottled - Pours a nice copper / light amber with a nice frothy off-white head. Strong Hop nose, just what I was expecting from an American IPA. Bitter citrus / grapefruit hop flavors hit you instantly but are balanced by a mild coffee malt finish. A nice no surprises IPA. I would definitely drink it again. omhper (25563) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAY 1, 2006
Bottled. Amber colour, average head. Strikingly hoppy nose with pear and lychee. Initilally it’s dry with rounded mouthfeel. It’s dominated by sweaty hops, but there is enough malt not to make it too lopsided. Some malt sweetnes comes through before a finish which is very bitter.
pnista (1007) - Bloomington, Indiana, USA - APR 30, 2006
Pours a orange tingued yellow with a minor head. Disappointing, but not dumbfounding. The nose changes matters altogether. Immediately hit by hops. Fruity somewhat juicy hops. I’m picking up fruity pineapple, tuttifruiti, and a hint of pine. Sweet, but only a bit malty. In the mouth this is really a dream, creamy, smooth, thick and frothy. There’s even a slight alcohol warming. There’s very little more I could ask of a session beer, though perhaps this could be a bit more thirst quenching. (Yes, I’m saying this maybe should be waterier!) The flavors are hopped up, and slightly less balanced than I would like. Immediately bitter and pungent hops with more pine than fruit and a considerable bit more malt than in the nose, but the lingering bitterness is a touch overkill. Not one dimensional enough for me to say this isn’t still a fabulous beer. A bit more pungent and juicy on the hops and I would be pleased with the imbalance! tcruicks (282) - Bloomington, Indiana, USA - APR 30, 2006
A good beer that doesnt look special! Its bubbly (but doesnt taste overly carbonated), clear, yellowish with a thin white head. The smell is much less malty and more fruity than the 90 minute IPA- its a hoppy orange smell, a bit floral. The flavour is also fruity, hoppy, creamy- some poppy seed and nuttyness as well. Finish is a bit bitter , overall fresh- i’d say the floral scents/flavours linger most of all. Its less hoppy than the 90 minute, but it lacks the extra maltyness. DrunkenWeasel (224) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 30, 2006
Pours darker amber with almost no white head. Smells of pine and flowery hops but not as intensly hoppy as 90 minutes. Smoother more malty flavor that coats the mouth just like the 90 minute. Quite nice but not as good as 90. Indy (87) - Hopkins, Minnesota, USA - APR 30, 2006
Pours clear copper/amber with a thin oliy white head. Aroma is very interesting...fruity hoppy goodness mingled with nutty sweetness and something that smells like wet cardboard (but in an appetizing way, oddly enough). Flavor is top notch American IPA...citrusy hop kick not quite balanced by a toasted malt base. Fantastic. Can’t wait to try the 90 and 120!! blankboy (7788) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 30, 2006
Bottle. Pours a clear sparkling orange-gold with an average size semi-lasting off-white head. Very nice hoppy aroma with some malt sweetness -- simple but pleasant. Flavour’s also hoppy and balanced by sweet malt and has a nice bitter finish. Medium bodied. Very easy to drink, quite flavourful and simply enjoyable, this is a world-class session IPA.
