softale (188) - Michigan, USA - OCT 22, 2002
Hazy amber in color. Very citrusy nose. Hops are present but not too bitter for an IPA. Pretty balanced still leaning towards the hop side. Finishes dry and with a pretty decent kick from those centennial hops. It was better than I had anticipated.

Botella en 99Cervezas. Precioso color mbar ajerezado perfectamente transparente. Espuma color vainilla de burbuja media y pequea, persistencia moderada y muy buena adherencia. Intensidad media en nariz, con una primera nota clara del lpulo, aunque delicada y nada agresiva. Notas de melocotones secos y agradables notas florales. Notas de miel muy al fondo. Complejidad media. Conjunto muy equilibrado aunque quiz demasiado suave para algunos. Primer sorbo impresionante, abriendo camino el sabor amargo pero seguido muy de cerca por un dulce ligeramente afrutado y tan expresivo como suave. El amargor es muy delicado y agradable, a la vez que muy presente. El equilibrio dulce-amargo es excepcional dando una IPA muy sabrosa y delicada a la vez. Ligera en boca, algo acaramelada y al tiempo ligeramente picante. Muy muy refrescante. El dulce gana presencia conforme evoluciona en boca, alcanzando un equilibrio excelente. Persistencia media muy adecuada. Una IPA de ms de 7% ABV que no se nota alcohlica en absoluto y tiene una tremenda bebestibilidad. Total y absolutamente recomendable. Un portento de cerveza de la que muchos pueden aprender, pues no es nada fcil conseguir estos equilibrios.

BillKismet (3956) - Seattle, Washington, USA - FEB 23, 2017
Brassy amber with a decent frothy head. Zesty Centennial hop nose of grapefruit and spicy floral character with a touch of dankness. The body is delightfully spicy, dank, and characterized by fruity and floral hops. Nice Crystal malt backbone shines through. Some woody notes arise from the background. Solid IPA.

Bottle from Hopt. Aroma is bready malt, fruity hops, strong citrus, orange, pine resin, mild caramel with a touch of grapefruit. Flavour is light to moderate sweet with a bitter finish. Body is medium. Firm citrussy and piney hops, lots of orange with a sturdy caramel malt backbone, good bittersweet flavour. Lovely IPA.

IndianaRed (4101) - Boise, Idaho, USA - FEB 15, 2017
On Tap at the Prefunk Founders tap takeover Classic deep golden. Big pithy citrus aromas and flavors. Rather harsh and soapy. Papery and bitter. Agressive.

BlazerT (856) - Sosnowiec, POLAND - FEB 14, 2017
Bottle. Shaker. Nice deep amber, medium hazy with small to moderate, dirty white head. Moderate head retention and poor lacing. Moderately to heavy hoppy aroma - mainly citrus (oranges), quite fresh. Balanced with moderate malty notes - pale, biscuits, caramel. Medium body, oily texture, average carbonation, finish is bitter, citrus and fresh.

IslandHaole (1248) - Misawa, JAPAN - FEB 14, 2017
A nice dark amber/orange hued beer with a creamy head. Well-balanced aroma, plenty of citrus peel but with enough malts to even the playing field. Good spicy hops, hints of pepper and bubble gum with a light bitter follow. How did I wait so long to try this lovely beer?

oobawa (886) - Tennessee, USA - FEB 6, 2017
Pours a glowing red-amber with a slight, dissipating head, and the nose gives up modest notes of floral-pine hops with a undertone of citrus and herb. Starts unexpectedly malty for such a hop-forward IPA, offering orange-caramel and biscuit with a tiny bit of a toasted undertone. Grows bitter and resinous quickly as mango-marmalade hops transform into a lengthy IBU-slathered finish. Fades dry and piney, lingering yet tasty. Not great, but solidly drinkable.
