Looks like IPA should with a golden amber body and a carpet of bubbly white head. The aromas smell malt driven with good golden peaches on a pastry tart with brown sugar spinkled liberally over the top. Theres a lovely nutty apricot quality along with it. It really does smell good. The first instance in the mouth is of prickly carbonation and then a massive flavour of that same maltiness along with plenty of bittering hops. It sits squarely in the front third of the tongue with lush sweetness alongside the hop astringency. The finish takes its sweet time and dwells mainly on old english bittering hops, but typically for an American brewer theyre there, loud and proud, not subtle and understated. Is this a criticism? No, a bald statement of fact that does not mean that it detracts from the overall enjoyment of this lush, lovely, loveable IPA. So loveable that I was saddened by seeing the bottom of the glass in the knowledge that I had just the one bottle. I doubt itll be the last,

kind of a sweet peach like/citrus and peppery aroma but not strong in any case...amber gold orange color,white foamy head..tastes of tingly pine and citrus hops with a medium sweet malt back the peppery notes coming through as well..fairly light and dry on the palate easily drinkable and refreshing probabaly at its best ice cold on a hot day..overall..does all it should do as an IPA well done but nothing standout about it

Scipio (941) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - JUN 6, 2012
Pours a golden with a white head. Aroma is grapefruit, pine, lemon, and grass. Taste has a nice initial hoppy bite to it. More pine notes than anything, but includes grapefruit and spices as well. Dry throughout with a bitter aftertaste that quickly fades. Not bad, but nothing to memorable here.

CPDalton (67) - Boone, North Carolina, USA - JUN 6, 2012
Bottle. Normal deep orange color of an IPA, one finger head. Fresh, piney, and earthy hops dominate the nose. Taste is a little sweet and malty up front, fading with a solid hippy bite. A little thick up front but finishes clean. Nothing fancy, but a good IPA.

sm5561 (118) - Kansas City, Alabama, USA - JUN 3, 2012
Pours amber with thick off white head that left soapy lacing. Hoppy aroma with citrus and floral notes. Fairly balanced flavor for an IPA. Citrusy hops prominent but there was a noticable caramel malt flavor as well.

Holmen1 (5479) - Stavanger, NORWAY - JUN 2, 2012
0,33 flaske p Biskopen i Bergen: typisk apa-aroma av grapefrukt og gress. Smaken ditto. En middelmdig apa, litt for besk til hevde seg.

Draft at beer authority. Average big India pale ale. Mild aroma. Tastes a bit sharp & spicy. Not bad, but was hoping for better.

Hazy yellow with off white thick lacing foam head. No aroma almost, taste is through bitter hops. Nice lasting bitter taste. (Zaandam 201205) ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
