Taster on tap at Barley’s during RBWG. Clear orange red color. Thin khaki head. Good thicker lace. Medium to bigger body. Smooth, lighter carbonation. More dry finish. Bigger moderate bitter taste, kind of zesty, minimal sweet. Good grapefruit citrus hop, caramel malt, some biscuity malt. Very nice resiny, citrusy IPA. A step up from Kashmir, I think. phaleslu (10551) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 16, 2014
Draft pour at Barley’s. Pours a reddish amber with an off-white head. Notes of amber malts, grass, florals, and citrus fruits. Light-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a dry, mildly bitter mouthfeel. Disappointing IPA. Aurelius (5489) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - FEB 14, 2014
Intense, rusty, clear, sudsy off white head. Ok label, US longneck. Tannic, hoppy, slightly sweet aroma. Moderately tannic, very lightly astringent, stiff bittering, toast, muted cocoa and chalk. Aftertaste is assertively bitter with toasty, tea notes. ABC, Bull Run wnoble (1251) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - FEB 13, 2014
Pours clear amber. Nose is candy, pears, cherries, spicy hops, citrus, sweet mango. Medium toasty crackery malt flavors with a touch of burnt caramels and again the sweet fruity hop flavors. Really pretty damn solid. jhliesen (833) - West Melbourne, Florida, USA - FEB 9, 2014
Bottle--cooper color with a medium, white head. Piney hops aroma that sat well on a base of biscuit, almost like roasted hop. Biscuit and caramel flavor up front followed by a good amount of hops. Good lacing throughout with some hop bitterness on the finish. Total wine. An IPA with roast and caramel, my kind of drink.

Deep almost brown pour with clinging tan head and lace. Aroma is resiny hops and caramel malt. Caramel malt with a decent resiny/floral bitter. Medium body with ok carbonation. nice hop combination Chudwick (3312) - Taylor Mill, Kentucky, USA - FEB 9, 2014
Keg blew, so this was free. It’s an IPA with a light body. Citrus hops. Mildly bitter for the style. Slight caramel in the finish. Better than the run of the mill beer. tmongoose (2504) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - FEB 3, 2014
12oz bottles. poured a darkish amber to almost red color with white head. pleasant aroma of hops and malt and earth even got some floral in the nose. the flavor was a bit different expecting an ipa and getting one but with different hops. apollo hops i have had before but never calypso so i was at a loss as to how it was suppose to taste. not to bad mind you. i did get some yeasty biscuits in the flavor and the hops not over bearing but was good. medium bodied and easily drinkable. almost reminds me of a red ipa. bubblehouse (1554) - louisville, Kentucky, USA - JAN 31, 2014
Pours a dark amber color with a really nice aroma. Taste is lacking a little but overall its OK. bkurtz (1125) - LITHUANIA - JAN 21, 2014
Pours a clear copper with a nice frothy head with some lacing. Aroma is spruce and dank. An earthy beer with nice bitterness, but has a metallic finish unfortunately. Some good things going on, but does not come together.
