One of my favorite IPAs. Extremely hoppy (resin) and very complex (perhaps some caramel) with a dry and bitter finish. iammarc (382) - Inverness, SCOTLAND - AUG 9, 2011

Pub. 355 ml, bottled. Cloudy amber, ringed head. Aroma: Hops, sour milk, caramel, mint. Taste: Pleasant bitterness, malty flavours. Palate: Medium body, average carbonation. Nice malty finish. Dry. esox (1226) - Oulu, FINLAND - AUG 5, 2011
Pale amber, clear beer. Minimal white head. Somewhat hoppy nose, resiny pint forest, tight citrus, some cantaloupe and green tea. Grainy, slightly worty maltines. Some medium dark caramel and biscuit. Bittrish aftrrtaste has good duration. Surprisingly rich maltiness for such a light beer. Medium bodied, smooth and rich texture. Very good for the strength.

pours a golden to slight copper color with a fluffy head and good lacing. the aroma is critrus, piney, some malt. the flavor is nice and citrus up front followed by a nice malt body and finished with almost a pineapple taste. the palate is a medium to heavier body. overall its is a nice crisp beer with a dry finish, this isnt the best i have ever had but its pretty good for being part of AB. bookman10 (1300) - Osseo, Minnesota, USA - JUL 30, 2011
Very nice. A dry finish to this citrusy, piney beer. Smooth, almost sweet flavor. Pours a nice golden yellow with mid-sized head. Not bad for such a mass-produced beer. rosenbergh (11949) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUL 30, 2011
355 ml bottle. Finland.JulienHuxley (5982) - Sherbrooke, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 29, 2011
Cloudy pale golden colour with tiny white head.
Very fruity sweetness, sweet caramel malt, peach, pineapple and mild alcohol in aroma. Bitter sweet hops, mild alcohol and grainy floury malt in flavour. Very easy IPA but still not tasteless.
On tap at GI Wrigley pub. Aroma: Floral hops and light pepper, very fresh. Appearance: Gold pour with meidum white foam. Taste: Quite bitter, floral hoppiness and nice refreshing finale. Palate: Full bodied and meidum carbonation. Overall: Good well-made IPA. dinkle50 (1583) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 16, 2011
Had this on draft at GI-Clybourn in a pint glass. Slightly hazy amber pour. Clean grapefruit finish. Slightly floral on the nose. Nice bitterness but balanced, not overdone. The malt really creates a dry IPA.
