BEENJAMIN (290) - Portland, Oregon, USA - FEB 1, 2013
UPDATED: MAR 4, 2013 Deep golden in color. Beautiful hop bouquet for aroma. Sweet caramel malts up front and a perfect bitterness to balance. Classic Nortwest IPA!

mariuspoenari (1835) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - NOV 10, 2016
Can at home. Semi-hazy caramel pour with a medium height tan head with OK retention. Aroma notes of caramel, dank cellar and citrus. The taste follows the same notes, with an addition of green grass, herbal hops, a bit of honey, Medium body and carbonation, smooth and velvety texture and a bitter-sweet finish. Another great example of an old-school, malt-forward, super-smooth IPA.

beer-yum (1414) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - AUG 27, 2016
Restrained citrus pine aroma in an amber pour. Tasty hop forward balance with a nice malty body and sustained bitter finish to match. Pretty much a perfect example of the style (US IPA) - but nothing special in the end.

Alengrin (4713) - BELGIUM - JUL 23, 2016
Hopworks flagship beer, an organic IPA, from a 50 cl can. Thickly cobweb-lacing, egg-white, moussy head with good edge retention and leaving cloudy patches in the middle, over a cloudy deep orange blonde beer with peachy hue. Extremely fruity bouquet of freshly squeezed orange juice mixed with mango juice, lychee, fresh lemon zest, yellow passion fruit, mandarin, cherimoya, lime blossom, honey, more subtle hints of pear, light pine, red curry, tonic water, rosewater, biscuit. Crisp and vivid onset, a basket of fruit including orange, guava, passion fruit and mango, sweetish and sourish and completely refreshing, in a somewhat sharp and minerally carbonated environment but in this case, this only adds to the refreshment on a hot summer day like today. Supple, juicy malt body ensues, nicely caramelly sweetish and a tad bready, providing more than sufficient structure for the hops, which manifest their bitterness early on only to grow in intensity towards the finish, as expected from an IPA. Tonic water- and wormwood-like, resinous, long bitterness dries the finish as good as completely and still manages to refrain from becoming overly harsh, while the lush exotic aromas of tropical citrus, tropical flowers and tropical spices rise up retronasally, bringing things to an utterly aromatic, beguiling end. What a beauty... Probably among the best organic beers I had so far and certainly a top notch IPA in my book, well-crafted structurally, very generous and offering both drying, thirst-quenching bitterness and sumptuous, exotic fragrance. It may have something to do with the weather - I really could use a good IPA today and Im a sucker for citrus-forwarded IPAs in general - but this is way better than I expected.

teamsale (215) - Washington, USA - JUL 2, 2016
Can at Chipotle. Smells woodsy, pine, fruit, citrus. Tastes a hoppy, twangy, nothing special at all sort. Medium bitterness. Lingering mediocre aftertaste. Average at best.
