StFun (567) - Indiana, USA - NOV 14, 2010
Pours a dark red orange. Aroma is creamy and juicy with a slight metallic note. Flavor is nice and sharp, with a good balance of malt and bitterness. Fairly strong for a regular IPA. Not too shabby.

corkyrory66 (1608) - BELGIUM - DEC 26, 2016
Ipa de 7,5 % abv, pour 18° plato, et 60 ebu, houblonnée en chinook et cascade. Mon exemplaire était à 8 mois avant sa date. Couleur pêche/abricot, à la clarté brillante, cristalline. Bulles fines, en diverses colonnes droites, nombreuses et vives. Mousse beige clair, épaisse, avec structure ferme en haut, stable à 5 mm. Arômes d’agrumes, sève de pin, abricot, marmelade d’orange. 1ère bouche souple à la belle entame agrumique, avec des épices, poivre blanc, pointe de moutarde. Arrière-bouche plutôt résineuse, avec des fruits confits. 2ème au bel ensemble, avec de belles nuances, mais l’astringence est assez forte. Arrière-bouche trop marquée par la résine. 3ème avec un fruité/résiné/épicé dont l’harmonie n’est pas réussie. Arrière-bouche à son tour astringente, elle serre la gorge. Longueur avec une sérieuse baisse des saveurs, sans équilibre, et manquant d’harmonie. Jambes fines, serrées, groupées. Levure un peu épicée, ligne correcte. Alcool bien, mais il se perd complètement dans la longueur, oubliant son livre de bord .. Finale vraiment banale. CONCLUSION : une ipa qui s’effondre complètement sur la longueur, à l’astringence trop marquée, et sans réelle harmonie. Déception importante pour ce brasseur ...

DonGregorio (115) - POLAND - DEC 19, 2016
Bottle. Pours hazy orange with average, mostly lasting off-white head. Aroma of pine, resin with touch of citrus and caramel. Taste is medium+ sweet and medium bitter, pine, again some caramel, leading to long, resiny bitter finish. Medium+ body, average carbonation. OK, but high sweetness and caramel reduce its drinkability.

MrHangover (4184) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - DEC 18, 2016
Bottle. Pours a hazy golden beer with a small white head on top. Aroma of tropical fruits and some grassy hints, touch of cheese and malts. Not too full of it. Flavor is mildly bitter, well balanced, some light citrussy notes in there and herbal touches. Well carbonated moutfheel, quite long and medium bitter aftertaste. Fairly ok in my book, could be a bit more distinguishable though.

Orange color. Average carbonation. Aromas of caramel, biscuit, munich malt, herbal and citrus hops. Quite bitter up front and stays bitter across the palate. Almost tastes like eating hop pellets. Hop character is mostly citrus and pine. This said, there is an unexpected balance to it. The hops cover a lot of the actually high sweetness of this beer. Has a bit higher body, but not at the expense of drinkability. I recommend following the suggested serving temperature of 11C, so the bitterness get moderated and the maltier tones come through. Good, but not great IPA.

heisenberg1992 (2) - rovato, ITALY - DEC 6, 2016 does not count
Birra dal colore ambrato carico/ramato, opalescente, con una testa di schiuma compatta e cremosa, molto peristente. Aroma molto equilibrato e piacevole con note di caramello, pane, agrumi, aghi di pino e frutta tropicale appena percepibile. Rotonda e raffinata in bocca. Gusto amabile all’imbocco con note di caramello e malto che lasciano poi spazio al pompelmo, alla frutta tropicale e ad un amaro intenso ma mai eccessivo. Finale amaro, resinoso e molto persistente. Nel complesso una IPA molto equilibrata, secca e piacevole da bere

I bought this bottle at Amstein. I drank it today at Bonfol. In my opinion, it is a really good IPA, all the qualities that you could expect. The taste is really bitter and this bitterness is present at all the phases, malt and there is a side sweet and citrus. The color is orange/copper and troubled, the carbonation is normal and there is a thin foam. It is a good one and well balanced!!!!
