hotstuff (5160) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - MAR 27, 2014
Rated on 2-28-2011 (Batch NR 145) - This bottled beer has a frothy tan head that mostly diminishes, orange transparent body, fizzy, fast rising carbonation, no lacing, and floaties are present. The aroma is caramel malt, alcohol, citrus, and floral hops. The taste is sweet, heavily bitter, alcohol, caramel malt, citrus, and floral hops. The mouthfeel is lively and this beer is medium bodied. This beer tastes like it is more than 6.5%ABV. It has a nice flavor that is heavy on the bitterness. kaser (6312) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 20, 2013
Poured from bottle I got at cheese shop in Des Moines Iowa. Tiny white head. Tart plum sweet aroma. Taste is slightly bitter and hoppy. Tart fruit dominates. Doesn't seem very much IPA in my book. Just ok nearbeer (5424) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JUN 13, 2013
500 ml, Batch 199, bottled 10.01.2009. Clear deep copper with a lasting film of creamy bubbles. Aromas of earthy toffee, raisin, oak, cherry and toasted grain. Tastes of tart cherry, plum, dark toffee, citrus zest and woody hops. Medium body is lightly tingly with low-average carbonation, and balanced by a long wooden finish. This one was on deep discount as it was obviously past its prime as an IPA. But the quality of the brew is still evident, and now with 4 years of bottle aging tastes like a nice English Strong with a touch of sourness.

May 2010. 50 cl. bottle. Poured amber with a white head. It has all the things an IPA is suppose to have, but is lacking balance in my book. Still very enjoyable. olio (10290) - Tampere, FINLAND - APR 6, 2013

A fair lemon lilt in the nose and a nice backlit yellow murk of a body, with a consistent and sizeable head. Sharp uptake of a rustic hop blend on initial taste and a fully expected zip from the upmarket IPAs on the palate with a sizeable bitterness on the finish.
This was the cheapest of the lot I’ve seen, bought just before an impromptu house party, and was just a cut above the generic. An interesting continental take on getting the bellow of pungentness from the English hops, but nothing you won’t be missing out on if there’s a spread from Haandbryggeriet for you to sample.
