22 oz bottle via Hagen. Pours a clear copper with a huge off white head. Nose is strong with notes of toffee and mango. Taste is sweet iced tea, toffee, biscuits, pineapple, mango and some earthy piny hops. Body is full, this is a bit syrupy. Carbonation is medium. Pretty tasty but more a barleywine than an IIPA as it is very malt-driven.
This draft brew from a restaurant was served at a cool temperature and poured a small sized head of foamy finely sized white colored bubbles that were mostly diminishing and left behind a softly carbonated body transparent yellow orange colored body and a poor lacing. The aroma was malt hop. The mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish with a medium hoppy aftertaste. The deep flavor contained notes of hops. A decent one that I would consider drinking again. zubblwump (110) - Michigan, USA - SEP 9, 2017
Faint aroma of crisp, spicy hops. Dark translucent amber. Lots of lacing. Robust malt flavor with a little hop bite and bitterness on the top. Very nice body, very nice flavor. I need to get more of this! sjkelty (6) - - SEP 5, 2017 does not count
Bottle from my buddy Jon. Heavy malt light hop with soft finish. Surprisingly tasty with such a powerful malty brew

Nice balance of hops and malt. Pours clear gold, substantially structured white head. Balance holds throughout, aroma and taste. Particularly like the big malt body behind the hops, providing a sweet counter to the hops. A big chewy, satisfying ale ffaoe (838) - Moorestown, New Jersey, USA - AUG 18, 2017

33ml Bottle at Sijf. A very well made beer but didn’t excite me too much. Have had many alike before (Brooklyn east IPA?) joepbeer (1) - Harrisonburg, Virginia, USA - AUG 5, 2017 does not count
Wow, is this a good beer! I’d not tried it before because I thought the name was a bit hokey, but I’m not sure if ales get any better than this. Wonderful flavor and balance. Just as well I only included one bottle in the sampler six-pack I just bought. So many micro-brewery beers and so little time to taste them all -- seems like there ought to be a law against that. I will continue my quest for the perfect beer but in the meantime this one is going to be in the fridge as one of my reference standards. tekstr1der (495) - New Hampshire, USA - JUL 26, 2017
Pours near clear golden with an initial froth that fades quickly to a ring. Aroma is amazing - bread dough, biscuit, a slight sweet of citrus. I could sniff this all day. Flavor brings more hop punch to the mix with the start of the sip with more citrus character and a hint of pine. Unlike so many current dipas, this mild bitter tang is very well balanced by a never-overdone malt backbone, near perfect in the balance to remain smooth and only medium-bodied. Finish is incredibly smooth, a slight sweet fades to a lasting mild bitter, insisting on another sip. The smoothness and drinkability is remarkable.
