Pours clear deep gold with a tall, sticky off-white head.
Spicy, floral, citrus hop aroma. Very pleasant.
The flavor is lightly bitter with an overpowering sweetness.
A bit thin.
Too sweet for an IPA. Tmoney99 (14846) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 5, 2012
Bottle. Poured hazy copper color with an average frothy off-white head that lasted with good lacing. Moderate to heavy sour citrus and sweet malt aroma. Medium to full body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Moderate to heavy complex bittersweet flavor with a moderate to heavy bittersweet finish of medium to long duration. This beer exceeded my expectations.

3-4 ounce sample from a bottle at The Davis Beer Shoppe. Medicinal, metallic light hop aroma. Stale hops present. Not much else happening in the nose. A bit disappointing. Mildly hazy honey-colored body with a small off-white head present. Starts with some light citrus orange flavors before this becomes sweet, sugar, and mostly cloying. Minute bitterness late. Way too sweet and sugary. Not really hoppy. This is an IPA? A joke. jcwattsrugger (12517) - Florida and, New Jersey, USA - JAN 14, 2012
500 ml bottle-shared by jtc-pours gold with offwhite bubbles. Aroma is soft fruit/spice/resin, some sweet light/medium malt. Taste is spice/resin hop bite that fades, some sweet light/medium malt-caramel. marcus (10560) - Sacramento, California, USA - DEC 30, 2011
Bottle from Healthy Spirits. Purs copper with a thick beige head and a citrus aroma. There is a hearty caramel malt flavor with lots of citrus and a dry bitter finish.

Bottle. Pours light caramel brown with off white head. Nose/taste of citrus, sweet malt, caramel and pine sap. Nose is fantastic and crisp. Taste is very short with almost no finish - just bitter and sweet caramel. Pleasant, just not enough there. kp (10881) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - DEC 25, 2011

En av flaskorna i Dugges IPA-triologi och kanske den snällaste. Som de andra bra humlade men lite för söta för mig. Härlig citrus- och tallarom som färsk är riktigt god. Beerlando (3342) - Orlando, Florida, USA - NOV 14, 2011
500ml bottle, as fresh as we can get it in the States (best by July 2012). The pour yields a very lightly hazy, dark golden-amber colored body with an initially tall yet quickly fading head of beige froth. Sticky honeycomb lacing marks the glass. The nose is sweet and muddled, showing loads of clover honey, toasted marshmallow, caramel, and stale bread. It’s also alcoholic, suggesting of mead almost. Hops seem faded, taking on an orange marmalade character. There is some mild spice, along wit suggestions of pepper. Flavors are overly sweet for an IPA, far too honey driven, with stale bready tendencies. Cardboard isn’t far off base. Hops are old and musty. The palate is under carbonated, syrupy, and just kind of drab overall. This beer is a failure. Best by July 2012...yeah right. hopdog (12953) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 9, 2011
