Aroma is distinctly filled with grapefruit and biscuits. Color is medium amber with a quarter inch tall off white head. Flavor of grapefruit, sweet malt, pine, minerals and then a dry, husky finish that seems a little rough. Good aroma and initial flavor, but I personally don’t care for the harsh finish.

Can. Orange with a medium head.Surprisingly malty for an IPA with just a hint of hops. Has quite a powerful presence and is certainly above average.

UPDATED: SEP 3, 2017 First tasted in a bottle from Binny's in Chicago, now a can from Asda, Ferring, so I'm probably looking at it through a haze of nostalgia, but I loved it! Very fruity, unapologetically strong and hoppy, copper, with a Snow White head that won't quit. New World , heavily carbonated bliss, it's never been to India, but, hey, the graphics more than make up for that!

This bottled brew from a bottle shop was served at a cool temperature and poured a small sized head of foamy finely sized white colored bubbles that were mostly diminishing and left behind the slightly hazy yellow orange colored body and a good lacing. The mild aroma was malt hop. The mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish hoppy aftertaste. The semi-sharp flavor contained notes of hops. An OK brew just nothing special.

kaserov (887) - Oviedo, SPAIN - AUG 25, 2017
Color dorado, translúcido, con capa de espuma de un blanco puro de tres dedos de grosor (buena retención). Carbonatación media visualmente. Textura acuosa. Típico pero maravilloso aroma a cítricos (cáscara de naranja, sobre todo, también pomelo), resina, mucho pino, algo de humedad y base de malta caramelizada suave. En boca dominan el pino y los cítricos (mucho pomelo y cáscara de naranja). Reminiscencias florales, también. El carácter resinoso es inferior al de otras IPAs más basadas en amargor y tonterías que no me interesan lo más mínimo. Pensaba que la malta le daría mayor cuerpo pero es ligera (y sabrosa). Amargor final muy suave. Retrogusto y postgusto a pino.

p0urmeac0ld0ne (181) - Merthyr Tydfil, WALES - AUG 22, 2017
a serious IPA that’s not to be trifled with. there is a darkness and maturity to this dense and demanding brew. highly recommended.

FunkyF (1270) - Örebro, SWEDEN - AUG 20, 2017
Flaska på Texas Longhorn. Bärnstensfärgad med luftigt smutsvitt skum. Doft av karamell och lite citrus. Bra balanserad med karamell, citrus och beska.

tmdaines (107) - Stretford, Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - AUG 15, 2017
Very nice. Generally prefer my IPAs on the fruitier side, but this rich caramelly one is not too sickly. Even goes down well on a hot evening sitting in the sun. Beautiful hoppy aroma, nice and smooth with a little fizz and bitter aftertaste.

Cakes (447) - New Bloomfield, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 6, 2017
12 ounce bottle. Foamy white head stays around. Balanced carbonation. The specialty hops from the Pacific Northwest. really make this special with a strong citrus taste. A worthy IPA.

A fantastic, crisp IPA that's very clean and refreshing. Many IPA's that have a higher ABV are very bitter but this beer has such a clean crisp finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
