Ifyouinsist (6) - , Devon, ENGLAND - SEP 30, 2008 does not count
Lovely colour - a dark amber against the window, almost ruby red against a light. Thick, durable head. Very bitter - too hoppy, overbalanced.

bradlyc77 (226) - Sebastopol, California, USA - SEP 28, 2008
Style could almost be considered a double IPA given ABV and malty flavor. Good aroma with floral notes.

markwise (5241) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - SEP 23, 2008
Pours a orange-reddish-brown typical IPA color with a large fluffy off-white head. Smells citrusy with hints of pine sap. Tastes of white grapefruit and has a dry finish. Slight bite in the finish witha lingering bitterness.

DocLock (10085) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 15, 2008
Bottle from Capone’s. Pours turbid orangy deep coppery with 1-finger off-white head and great lacing. Nose is huge mango, tangerine, pineapple, caramel malt, hops, with a citric, hoppy flavor, and the tangerine, pineapple, mango, and heavy black peppery spicy flavor throughout. Rich, complex, lively palate make this one a true joy to drink from beginning to end. This one is world class!

Indra (2711) - Suburbia, Kansas, USA - SEP 15, 2008
500ml bottle. Fresh, fruity aroma, citric and leafy with lighter notes of toasted caramel malt, flowers, grapefruit and orange. Hazy dark amber color, bottle conditioned, poured off the sediment to a lasting, rocky head of off-white foam. Flavor profile is malty and gently sweet to start, honeyed and caramelized, turning predominantly hoppy and bitter thereafter, with a good punch of spicy, citric resins, carrying through to the finish where the malt, hop and ample fruitiness compliment one another quite nicely. Lingering suggestions of golden apple and pine. Palate is oily, slick and well-carbonated, body is medium-full. Very nicely constructed and highly satisfying with a good depth of flavor.

janir (216) - Oulu, FINLAND - SEP 14, 2008
Hazy, ruby orange color with moderate, creamy off-white head. Aroma is malty with toffee, fruits, yeast and very much flowery hoppyness. Flavor is strongly flowery hoppy, malty and a bit toffy. Aftertaste is bitter and citric. Full-bodied and foamy carbonated palate

HopheadHans (804) - Bay Area, California, USA - SEP 5, 2008
Bottle. Pours with a golden to reddish color. Surprisingly hoppy aromas and flavors however wll balanced with a nice malt backbone. Lost of grepfruit and some pine, in addition some more dark fruit and toffee. Very nice, more complex than most of the IPAs.

Embrouille (2843) - SWITZERLAND - SEP 1, 2008
Bottled 50cl. It pours a hazy amber beer with a wonderful nose. Hints of wild strawberries, grapefruit, peach and rose showing up. Beige head. Average head retention. Deeply pleasant taste. Hints of rose, grapefruit, wild strawberries and apricot accompanied by caramel. Perfectly balanced. Nice bitterness. Rose and licorice in the finish. It’s like drinking nectar. Thanks a lot larsga for this amazing beer!

RuneStumo (2608) - Haugesund, NORWAY - AUG 29, 2008
29.08.2008, 0,5l Bottle. The colour is golden copper and the beer is cloudy and lively carbonated. Fruity aroma dominated by bitter hops, citrus and flowers. I think this is a very good example of an IPA.

mikkopen (1064) - Oulu, FINLAND - AUG 24, 2008
500 ml bottle. Slightly hazy reddish orange colour, big off-white head. Spicy aroma of citrus fruits, pine and floral hops. The flavour is very much like the aroma, with a long and strongly bitter hoppy finish. Smooth and oily mouthfeel. One of my personal favourites.
