COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is a tasty tribute to a beloved and iconic beer style - the India Pale Ale. The style goes 200 years back - has been through every spectrum of the flavor palette and had it’s ups and downs on the IBU scale. This time around we re-created a contemporary style IPA - basically the taste of the perfect IPA right now. Understated hop flavors, fruity and crisp. The future is now.

dmac (6646) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - OCT 4, 2017
Can from Crows. Poured a hazed bright yellow gold with a smaller foamy white head. Aroma of light tropical fruits, melon, guava and kiwi skins. Flavor is kiwi, melon, cantaloupe, guava and grain. Body is a bit full and foamy from the big foamy carbonation.

Mudded aroma and taste. No hop characteristic stands out to me. Slightly cloudy brass color. Modest head.

vinivini (3245) - Gomel, BELARUS - SEP 15, 2017
Can. Cloudy golden ale. Soapy white head. Good retention. Aroma: danky fruit, dough, some fresh resin, distant honey. Light to medium body. Soft carbonation. Rather dry taste. Subtle honey starting. Dough in the middle. Hoppy ending. Resin, grapefruit. Solid still soft bitterness. Hugely drinkable and refreshing. This is the IPA how I like it even though it may not be the ever best of style.

drjay44 (3923) - Salida, Colorado, USA - SEP 14, 2017
12 oz. can. Batch #013. Pours a medium, well retained off white head, over a hazy yellow (SRM 3) body.....nose initially is fruit with citrus peach tones, evolving quickly, to grass, dank tones, moderate allium, minimal malts, balance heavily to the hops.....taste is mild malts, with light cracker, dank grass, light pine, allium, finishing with moderate hop bitterness, balance to the hops......mouth feel, medium body, no alcohol, moderate carbonation. The hops are dominant, and have an unpleasant allium in both aroma and flavor. A change in the hop profile would improve the beer as would a slightly more present malt backbone. BJCP 5/3/9/4/5

Let me ask you, how often do you find yerself drinkin stupid contemporary ubiquitous IPA because its everywhere? I do all the time and I don't even care for the style. So what about the color? I'll give it a 2 because its probably pale yellow, cloudy if I'm lucky. If you think otherwise, I'll raise the number, just beermail me. Smell? Right from the can, it is mildly sweet hop perfume, no sign of recent hop BO, BTW, of which I am glad. Totally big dull hop, past its 24 hours of freshness to be effective, first impression. Yes, big hops, what else is to be expected of an IPA except that many IPA try to be a double IPA? Some kind of big civilized attempt? Forget about it, this is just another big dull, past the week of expected, hop tasting bonanza. So be it. What else can be erected, oops I mean expected? Nothing.

77ships (11601) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - AUG 25, 2017
355 ml. can – drank from the can. Canning date is impossible to read. Nose is murky oddly stale yeast, milky grapefruit peel, old medicine. Taste is far too heavy on stale yeast, feels like old yeast, bitter plaster, grapefruit peel,… Fresh, all of the other Evil Twin cans from that shipment at the store were very fresh, stored col etc. Still heavy yeast, plaster, old medicine, oddly feels like an older old school IPA to me. Not what I expected at all, given the tittle it seems like a cynical joke on NEIPA’s. I didn’t get it or the high score on here but my taste in IPA’s tends to diverge heavily from the standard, still I felt shorted.
