3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured from the bottle. Nice creamy white head that holds well. Aroma is very malty with slight citrus and pine. Surprised to smell more malt than hops in this beer. Taste is very malty sweet that is well balanced in the finish, with a hint of grapefruit. Body is medium to full for the style, with creamy mouthfeel. Overall, this is one of the better IPAs I’ve had. Maltier than most but well balanced.
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.

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 (1290) - 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.

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. ALIBALI (2394) - Kiel, GERMANY - AUG 5, 2017

Tap at pub. Pours golden with a medium sized white head. Aroma has citrus with piney hops. Taste is malty with citrus hops. Full palate with a nice long finish. Great.
