KegOstertag's rating

   AROMA 8/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 17/20
KegOstertag (92) - - DEC 2, 2012
Drank from short pilsner at home from a 22oz bottle. Aroma- very clean and fresh hop and citrus notes. Appearance- very appealing yellowish orange. Thick head for an IPA and lots of carbonation. Taste- very nice and clean taste. Light hops and you can taste the orange citrus coming throug. Palate- somewhat bitter/burnt orange taste. Not bad though. Overall- good ipa but would rather have a sculpin or 2 hearted ale.

Amarillo oro con media cabeza de espuma de larga retención en copa; aromas a caramelo, fruta tropical, resina, lúpulo y hoja de pino; en boca entrada media con fuerte y redondeado amargor, cuerpo medio pleno y acertada carbonatación, largo retrogusto con agradable amargor, acabando seca, notas a resina y cítricos, excelente y equilibrada cerveza, correcta en estilo.

355 ML bottle clear orange amber, white head that falls away quick. Good spotty lacing. Nose is pine, grapefruit and citrus. Malt body is clean, crisp and vibrant. A touch mineral but that is OK. Straightforward grapefruit and pine. Clean and easy to drink. Clean malt body. no hint of AVB. Solid and classic West Coast.

Pretty good. Lifted tropical fruits work well with old skool mineral hop firmness in the back palate. Really quite traditional - a surprise.

Super IPA that's all grapefruit and grapefruit. Lovely bitterness and subtle malt backbone. What a cracker! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

It pours golden with orange tinges. The head is off white with good head retention. Aromas are floral and citrus. The flavors feature grapefruit and citrus with a bready backbone. It has a moderately high bitterness that is long lasting.

Clean light amber colour, big white head. Aroma of tropical fruits, caramel, malt, citrus, honey, toffee, spicy and piny hops. Sweet lightly sour taste with bitter hoppy finish and aftertaste. Medium body and average carbonation. Excellent IPA.

Can. It was really nice aroma and taste. Aroma was fruity and taste was little sweet.

Can. A lovely IPA. A very good beer. Pours a lovely orange colour. This beer brings back memories of my trip to new York city, had a bottle in my hotel room one night. A very malty beer as uk beers tend to be.

Ein sehr frischer fruchtiger Geruch. Zitrusfrüchte im Antrunk gefolgt von starkem Hopfengeschmack. Liegt wohl an den 7 Hopfensorten!

wojanex (221) - warszawa, POLAND - MAY 4, 2017
Ładne, przejrzyste, klasyczne ipa, bez mętnych wygłupów, super pijalne, rasowe piwo
