Bottle shared by Vtafro. Crazy looking label. Pours a hazy orange body with a thin white head. Wow what the hell happened, this beer is shot dunno if its an off bottle or what but dam, freaking drain pour. Soap y hop character, paper and moth notes. Some light pine citrus and caramel malts but ugh the clear oxidation or infection is overwhelming.

Draught at The Pub Monte Carlo in Las Vegas. I had never heard of this brewery before and this beer is one of those rare gems that you come across, no expectations, just drink and see. There was a bold fruity hop aroma bursting out of the glass. The flavour was great and right up there with the best IPAs tha I have had. The flavour was well balanced and not overpowering in the hop department.

Golden orange pour with some caramel, light grassy hops and malt. Flavors are the same, basic, but not bad, more malt than hops for an IPA. Ok overall, wouldnt seek out or go out of m y way to try.

Light golden color. Sharp grassy nose with some citrus notes, a bit harsh. The mouth is light for the abv but very simplistic. Alcohol burn at the end. Very simplistic.

jkwood04 (5355) - Connecticut, USA - JUL 17, 2013
12oz can in a tulip. Pours amber with a lacy, off-white head. Aroma of floral, lightly citrusy, and lightly fruity hops, plus a little pale and light caramel malts. Flavor the same, but somehow light and tin-like for a beer with such a high alcohol content. Average texture. Not bad but not great.

heemer77 (5317) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - DEC 1, 2011
Bomber, thanks to my brother. The body is a medium copper hue with a light khaki head. The nose has some earthy sweat and a bit of pine. Then there is also some grapefruit. The taste is mineral and herbal with grapefruit on the back end. There is a strange slight tartness with some bread crust. This one is definitely off.

Bamsen78 (5169) - Snderborg, DENMARK - MAY 17, 2014
Bottle @ America Strikes Back, Ulfborg. Pours hazy light amber with small white head. Clear aroma of hops, with notes of fruit and citrus. Intense, bitter, hoppy flavour, with subtle, sweetish fruity notes, ending on a dry and acidic note. Bitter aftertaste. Decent.

Aurelius (5158) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - AUG 4, 2013
Somewhat abrasive hop aroma - litter box, grapefruit, pineapple. Tatoo art logo, 12 oz can. Clear, or almost clear, citrine brew with an absolutely huge, ivory head in a snifter. Pretty smooth, big IAIPA flavor - grapefruit pith, light diacetyl, fairly sweet, modest pine/resin. Man, this would make great Mojo - add a little oregano and lime. Very respectable, a big beer. Thanks to PorterPounder for digging this out of World Market.
