This could quite possibly be my holy grail beer. First off, I love the look of this beer. Dark and cloudy, with lots of little floaties. Aroma of hops greet you. The sweet malt character is striking in such a bitter, hoppy brew. Very enjoyable.

UPDATED: MAR 2, 2017 Tap at Tap Singapore - super-fruity super-floral pale perfect for me - reminiscent of Garage Project Angry Peaches - low malt impact - perfect balance with apricot and marmalade-y hops with a zingy herbal edge - lovely bitter finish - I could drink this all day - beautiful.

Finely an IPA with the color it should have. From the readings I done, IPA's should be darker than most IPA's on the market. Kilning techniques were not so good in the old days. I loved the rich head and beautiful lace. The extreme hoppiness is well balanced with the malt. Good mouth feel. This is a wonderful example of an IPA.

One of the best balanced IPA's I've ever had. 22 oz. brown bomber bottle. Aug '03 bottling date. Poured out a murky, cloudy brown color, with a tan head. It has green highlights in the head from the massive amounts of hops used in brewing this delicious brew. Fresh, floral hops scent, with a spicy, resinous note to it as well. Strong malt backbone stands up well to the hops. A really well made, and well thought out beer. Finishes clean & crisp, with spicy hops burps to boot. A great beer overall. I highly recommend it.

A new favorite. Pours an amber honey color with a medium sized creamy froth. Aroma has a fine balance of malt and generous hops to create a bouquet of bright citrus. Full nectar with mellow residual effers. The flavors revolve around the usual IPA description of citrus rind and malted caramel. What sets this one apart is the balance. All components are perfectly integrated to create a brew to remember. Not too citrusy, not too malty, not too sweet, and the effers are finely tuned. I highly recommend this brew.

Peut-être l’IPA parfaite.Une grande richesse, complexité, corps et amertume pour une IPA dite "simple". Bouquet floral et fruité au nez.Très porté sur les agrumes, en particulier la clémentine, la mandarine.Mais aussi le raisin blanc, la pêche, l’ananas et le fruit de passiflore. Corps léger en alcool mais suffisamment consistant pour porter le tout jusqu’à l’amertume et la finale sèche mais pas trop.Une IPA américaine mais extrêmement fine et fruitée.Dirais-je l’IPA parfaite ?

Great beer. Aromas of peach, notes of citrus and grass. Very long, balanced taste.

This IPA is like Victory Hop Devil turned up a notch or two. Medium red brown color, darker than most IPAs. Very piney hop aroma. Extremely hoppy flavor, both in pure bitter and in wonderful citrus/pine finish. Well balanced with a big malt body. Out of all my notes on beers, this ranks as #2 amongst IPAs (2nd only to Terminal Gravity IPA)
