Creedence (314) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 26, 2013
Keg at Bierhaus. Pours a hazy amber with a thin white head. Aroma is lashing of tropical fruit, citrus, berries and a hint of vanilla. Hugely fruit nose. Taste is a subtle sweetness very nicely blended with a fruity hop bitterness and a nice tropical fruit finish. Nice and even carbonation and good body. Bowled over by the quality of this one.

UPDATED: AUG 23, 2013 Keg at Farringtons. Amber pour. Big juicy tangerine, peach, passionfruit and mango nose - proper Rubicon tropical juice thing going on. Juicy tropical notes make themselves heard in the taste: lots of nice mango and passionfruit. Some pithier citrus, a touch of caramel and bready malt. Nice zingy bitterness. Long juicy tropical finish. Delicious - best Irish IPA ever made. garthicus (2945) - Dublin, IRELAND - AUG 27, 2013
Keg at Farringtons. Appearance: orange red with an off white head, some slight haziness. Aroma: Intense ’juicy’ mango and pineapple, a little catty too, ever so tropical fruity, it’s making my mouth water. Flavour: Wonderful mango juice, pine and citrus burst! Very well balanced sweetness with a good malt backbone to it. Lots of bitterness, alcohol well hidden. A super flavourful brew. In agree with Alex, the best Irish IPA ever made. Cracking stuff. brianbore (6) - cork, IRELAND - OCT 15, 2013 does not count
Small head probably due to short maturation for 7% beer, like its twin super beer. Have a few in the cellar aka shed will let immature for 3months and get back elbernays (1680) - Dublin, IRELAND - NOV 23, 2013
Pours cloudy amber, wispy head, nice lacing. Big fruity nose orange, mango, peach, Pines with some spice. Lovely aroma. Flavour is fruity bread. Body is Medium, but is a little bit of watery finish. This just let?s it down a bit in my book. The abv is managed really well and it?s good to see a good strength in an Irish beer. Bitterness is lasting on finish without being abrasive. This is a really good clean crisp ale. Exciting.
