courtesy of Antonio Rey - pretty clear dark orange beer with a poor head retention; aroma of cream and almonds, hints of peach and pineapple below; full-bodied, very assertive and solid bitterness; dry and long flowery hoppy finish; the fruits stay in the background now NikkTwist (3225) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 23, 2013
Draft at Farmers Cabinet. Solid hoppy brew but not all that complex. Need to try again. nealm759 (34) - Georgia, USA - MAY 20, 2013
Not a very strong nose just little sweet malt hints, poured amber or dark straw white frothy head with good lacing and retention.
First so is very malty front with lingering hop bitter finish. Not very specific hop flavors stand out. A little citrusy and a bit chewy.
Overall a pretty mehh dipa. jtclockwork (16588) - , New Jersey, USA - MAY 19, 2013
Bottle. Shared with Jcwattsrugger. Part of 5K backlog. Pours cloudy gold with off white head. Nose and taste of salted pineapple husk, dried bread, citrus, resin, caramel malt and barley/rye. Medium bodied. Dryish finish. 5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - MAY 19, 2013
Bottle: Dark straw, dirty in color, thin frothy off-white head, spotty lacing. Sweaty hoppy aroma, a little dank and musty. Has a sweet aspect to it that is like Pez or Pixie Stix. Pretty familiar with this with a lot of Danish IPA or IIPA examples. Rather earthy on the tongue, soft sweetness, a little candyish, not all that bitter. Seems very artificial on the tongue, soft bitterness, slight rind/pith, but with that fake Pixie Stix, or Pex like candy sweetness... it kills it. Body and mouthfeel are moderate. How does it finish? At this point, who gives a sh*t.   Brewed in the USA.   Odd, thought we would have known better by now.   You can do better Ipswich!

2013-04-12. Crisp dark orange body with a nice off-white head and lace. 3++ Interesting aroma, caramel toasty malt, decent amount of alcohol. Flavour is similar, good amount of bitterness, caramel toasted malt. Very light citrus notes, warming alcohol lingers in the finish. Average plus bodied palate. Solid, but a bit overly boozy.

Thanks to hogtownharry. Deep amber pour. The nose is pretty peppery and spicy. There’s a bit of nice fruitiness and a bit of light peppery character. Some light mintiness and a touch of sweet fruit. Fairly assertive bitterness and a lovely lingering finish. A bit of spice.
