COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A Metamodern IPA conceived of hand selected hops from down under. Malt barley and red wheat combine to create a clean malt backbone with foolproof flavor and mouthfeel to support the main act of Enigma, Vic Secret, Ella, Topaz and Galaxy hops. The hops strum juicy and sweet aromas with headline notes of passion fruit, raspberries, pineapple and citrus. This straight-up strain is Oskar Blues IPA (6.43% ABV). To each their own til we go home.

355ml can. Pours a hazy golden lemon with a small white head. Nose is very bready and biscuit with pineapple and citrus notes, some apricot too. Medium mouth feel. Taste is like an old school Ipa, big on biscuit malt, some apricot, pineapple, lemon and grapefruit. I also get some licorice in the taste too. Pretty nice brew. Good solid dry bitter finish.

Can from systembolaget. A very classic and decent IPA. Old, meaty, addictive

UPDATED: FEB 9, 2018 Solide IPA. Belles notes florales. Très classique, sans davantage de caractère.

Ipa du Colorado de 6,43 % abv (à quand les millièmes ??), en cannette bleu/argenté de 33cl. J'ai mis du Slash pour accompagner dignement ce liquide d'outre-Titanic .. (l'album Apocalyptic Love est parfait ..). Houblonnage du 4ème millénaire en enigma, vic secret, ella, topaz et galaxy ...(en matière de recherche esthétique, on ne peut pas mieux) Couleur doré moyen, aux reflets ambrés, à la clarté brillante. Bulles fines, en fontaine centrale, vives. Mousse blanche, à flocons moyens, structure ferme en haut, stable à 3 mm. Arômes d'orange, clémentine corse, zeste de mandarine. 1ère bouche souple, à l'entame fruits/herbes/bois blanc, avec une pointe de moutarde. Arrière-bouche épicée, mais très jolie. 2ème avec une très belle ligne harmonique, et une pointe de tabac blond. Arrière-bouche longue, complexe. 3ème à la belle suite avec du thé rooibos, pointe de cointreau. Arrière-bouche très élégante, riche. Longueur qui apporte le lien fruité/amertume que l'on attendait, et qui donne toute la splendeur de cette bière. Jambes à flocons moyens, assez collantes. Levure douce, fine, belle ligne. Alcool qui fait un peu plus que son niveau, il sait à la fois soutenir et s'effacer quand c'est nécessaire pour l'amertume .. Très beau travail. Finale dense, riche, performante. CONCLUSION : très belle bière, pas du tout blues, mais très typée rock and roll .. Slash oblige !! Le song "bad rain" la représente au mieux. Un beat du tonnerre … Cette bière comporte des lacunes au visuel dans le verre (cannette oblige ..), mais on ne peut la sanctionner sur ce critère, parce que c'est tout simplement une superbe ipa ...

Aroma - piney aroma with crystal malt. Appearance - the body is a very hazed orange yellow. 1" white head that fades slowly. Solid lacing. Taste - has a full crystal maltiness. The hops are a mix of earthy and mild pines bitterness. Slightly tannic. Palate - body is medium, texture smooth, carbonation is average, finish is tannic and slightly bitter.

SimplySike (1551) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JAN 5, 2018
12 fl oz. can. Pours hazy orange with head. Damped, pine, some citrus. Taste nice sweet, piney bitter. Mouthfeel dry. Nice but not fresh enough.

joobi_slaps (1) - AUSTRALIA - DEC 26, 2017 does not count
UPDATED: DEC 26, 2017 Can from Grape & Grain. Deep golden in colour with a good white head that lasts. Pine taste is a given but with a good level of sweetness in the form of mango and caramel, with a long lasting but not overbearing after taste. Will definitely drink again!

3.6
KyotoLefty (10920) - Kyoto, JAPAN - DEC 23, 2017
Tap at Takanoya. Hazy golden orange with lace. Piny nose, lemon, resins. Honey biscuit malt flavor with resins, lemon. Crisp and hoppy semi-old school but no caramel. Decent.

3.1
ManVsBeer (11436) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - DEC 20, 2017
Can from ASDA, Halifax. Mildly hazed golden-amber ale with a frothy head. Pineapple is light but the dominant mix of several citrus fruits, and they combine to hide this beer's strength well.

3.9
spacecube (1822) - Leeds, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - DEC 19, 2017
Can, pours hazy, pale gold, white lasting head. Aroma is pale malts, lovely hoppy piney aroma with citrus underneath, some pineapple and lemon zest. Light medium body, oily texture, dries nicely and smoothly into a longish bitter finish with a touch of spice. My kind of IPA.
