Suttree (6484) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 10, 2008
Cloudy orange, thin beige head. Seems quite a bit different than the original IPA, but that mey be just my memory playing tricks on me. I dunno. Harsher, a little rougher around the edges, I guess. Really citrusy and an odd aroma of sea breeze (from the ocean, not the facial cleanser). Flavor is, as I said, fairly harsh and unrefined, at least compared to what I was expecting. Not bad, actually.

Dark clear gold-amber. Strong sweet malty aroma; caramel, biscuit, fruit. Taste is not as sweet as the nose suggests; mostly smooth grapefruit and citrus flavor, some pine and herbal notes. Zesty finish.

UPDATED: OCT 13, 2017 Superb strong flavour. A cross between dead pony and cannonball. The hops are very evident but subtle in their attack. Lovely brew.

Вполне сносная Американская Ipa. Запах фруктово-хмелевой. Вкус очень резкий, чувствуется достаточно большая фруктовая горечь.Послевкусие очень мягкое с легкой горчинкой.

simontomlinson (564) - Blackburn, Lancashire, ENGLAND - SEP 30, 2017
Off white creamy head stayed on a translucent, still, copper coloured body. Minimal aroma of malt & spice. Medium bodied. Smooth & slightly cloying. Malt forward with a back of citrus & pith. Similar to an English IPA.

johndoughty (5521) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - SEP 15, 2017
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.

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.

Bottle, UK import, source not recorded. Backlog entry. Entering my historic scores for US beers whilst visiting New York. No tasting notes kept, just rating.

p0urmeac0ld0ne (203) - 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.
