Damn good IPA. Note that this was bottled in September 2011, which makes it that much more impressive. The aroma was somewhat faint with floral and sweetness. Nice copper amber color with small head. However, the carbonation was still at a good level. Medium weight with smooth character followed by crispness. The hops were piney and some citrus and very present and balanced. This held up well and was a pleasure to drink.
Beer with copper aspect, medium bitterness, soft carbonized, good volume of foam, (drunk a 20cl tap beer in NaPalmě, Praha, CZ #601)(#3 US, #1 Colorado). MashForever1 (2) - - NOV 10, 2017 does not count
Outstanding! Extremely drinkable. Hints of malt and not as many pine notes that I expected. pleispleis (167) - Maccagno, ITALY - NOV 10, 2017
bottiglia 355 cl, schiuma beige fine media persistenza, colore ambrato velato, al naso malto ananas e frutta tropicale,, in bocca malto caramello agrumi frutta tropicale, corpo medio, carbonatazione moderata, lieve astringente, un po’ troppo sbilanciata sull'amaro accentuato molto lungo nel finale. 10.11.17 Bill Becker (1770) - Casper, Wyoming, USA - OCT 16, 2017
From Oct 2005
This pours a beautiful copper and leaves an abundant head that is slow to dissipate. The smell is pure pine to me and I anticipate that this will translate to a strong pine flavour and I'm right.
This is a very bitter ale to me with the malt making only a token presence. I wish it was a bit better balanced but all in all, I could see myself buying this on a regular basis.
Like someone else mentioned...try the Hercules Double for more complexity.

Extreme bitter more than hops. Was contemplating between this and dogfish 120 minute. Will have that next

Bottle @Bir&Fud Bottega (Rome). Ambrata carica, appena torbida, schiuma bianca media. Al naso sentori di ossidazione, malto, note citriche, resina. In bocca ha un attacco maltato con finale amaro a cui manca totalmente spunto. Corpo medio, carbonazione media. Non freschissima. FunkyF (1333) - Örebro, SWEDEN - SEP 9, 2017
Flaska från amerikansk vän. Bärnstensfärgad med vitt skum. Doft av barr, kola och citrus. Lite stickig känsla, smak av skog och beska. Grumbo (3948) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - AUG 21, 2017
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. prawlie (1675) - Berkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 21, 2017
Bottle. Clear amber with a pillowy head and well carbonated. Highly hopped pine aroma. A blast of hops on the palate, and a clean dry finish with a hint of sweetness. Balanced and flavoursome. A decent version of the style, yet it wouldn’t go on my list of ’special beers’, its just nice quite there.
