IPAs are still a style Im learning to enjoy. Cloudy yellow pour, strong aroma of citrus, pine or cedar, and some floral undertones. I really like the aroma. The initial taste has bitter hops and lots of the woodiness from the aroma. I didnt get much of the citrus or floral. Pretty good for an IPA.

Grapefruit and pine resin abound in this prototypical double ipa. Nice and murky with unfiltered hoppy goodness in suspension. The flavor is much the same as the aroma- massive citrus and graprefruit evergreen with some tropical fruits, and a light caramel malt background. The palate is thick thick thick with medium carbonation. Resinous.

650ml bottle pretty fresh (for illinois/port standards, just arrived not too long ago). Served around 55 degrees. It pours a murky orange. One of the hazier beers out there. The head is wild and shoots up pretty high. It is foamy and white and leaves some lacing. This one is not that aromatic to me. The main scent is tropical fruit with some herbal notes. The flavor is pretty good. It has a nice bitterness but not over the top. Surprisingly the mouthfeel is the best thing about this one, odd for a Port beer. The fruitiness isnt as prevalent in the flavor, it is like those sweet orange tomato like fruits mixed with pine. Pretty good.

lusikka (7793) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 9, 2011
650 ml bottle.
Pours a dark orange colour with a lacy, white and thick head. Strong aroma of fresh hops, grapefruit and pineapple. Flavour of strong, fresh, floral hops, pine needles, grapefruit and very weak sweetness. Some saltiness as well. Full bodied, slick mouthfeel and a long, grapefruity and crispy bitter finish. Alcohol is very well hidden. This is a double IPA done well. No annoying sweetness and a massive amount of hops.

tiong (6803) - Espoo, FINLAND - SEP 9, 2011
650ml bottle from Mybrewerytap

Pours orange with a large foamy head. Strong citrusy and hoppy aroma with notes of pine and fruits. Taste is quite fruity with notes of citrusy hops and pine. Quite carbonated, dry, bitter and hoppy finish. Excellent, well balanced double IPA.

Super lemon, gooseberry and pine-needle nose. Very pale looks. An acetone finish. Very bitter all around. I need another ride on this.

$3 for a pint of 99-rated double IPA...gottta love that. Hazy amber with a thin head. Herbal and floral with passion fruit and papaya. Good balance. Nice moderate bitterness. Refreshing, bitter and quaffable.

UPDATED: APR 17, 2013 22oz bomber from friend....orangish yellow color with nice head. good lacing while it lasted...decent citrus flavor over all and some earthiness to it..somewhat bitter on the front and then calms down. 4/17/13 re-review awesome aroma not what I remembered. Strong hops in both aroma and flavor. Very good dipa.

From tap. Pours golden/amber and hazy. Nice frothy head and a very citrus aroma. Taste is great and pleasent to the palet, but not pungent lik many IPAs. Excellant beer, with an excellant taste.

On tap @ Lost Abbey. Amber orange brew with a nice white head. Delicious pine and tropical fruit aromas - taste is bitter but still has a good amount of malt. Lots of grapefruit and pine.
