fiveacestx (934) - Texas, USA - OCT 7, 2012
On tap and served in a frosty glass because the bimbo at the bar didnt know any better. Medium gold with a small head and lacing. Had a peppery taste to it and not hoppy at all. It had a thin mouthfeel and was drinkable but it just didnt seem like an IPA.

Bitter and a little one dimensional. I enjoyed this beer much more once it was poured into a glass.

gyllenbock (8171) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - NOV 15, 2016
Bottle from Thirsty Craft Beer Shop, Singapore. Golden with a large head. Aroma of citrus, caramel, some hops and cookies. Similar taste. Sweetish and with a fairly bitter finish.

Can. In a world of over-the-top IPAs this has no place. However, there is good hoppy notes on the nose and a nice hint of bitter taste, without a palate destroying disaster occurring when you reach for a second.

Tessic (1061) - Brantford, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 30, 2016
This IPA poured a medium Amber colour with a quick living, off white head. Scents include a little citrus, grass and a bit of hay. Little lacing. First swig was quite bitter with nice citrus hop flavour. A little caramel and juniper. Finish is quite bitter with hop flavour lingering forever. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

superspak (4879) - Michigan, USA - OCT 24, 2016
12 ounce bottle into tulip glass, bottled on 7/24/2015. Pours crystal clear deep golden/light orange color with a 1-2 finger dense and fluffy white head with good retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of grapefruit, lemon zest, orange peel, light pepper, pine, honey, light caramel, toasted biscuit, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of citrus/earthy hops and moderate bready malt notes; with solid strength. Taste of grapefruit, lemon zest, orange peel, light pepper, pine, honey, light caramel, toasted biscuit, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Light-moderate pine/grassy/spicy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, lemon zest, orange peel, pepper, pine, honey, toasted biscuit, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Nice complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/earthy hops and moderate bready malt flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance, and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Light dryness from bitterness, increasing through the glass. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, moderately creamy/grainy/sticky, and slightly resinous balanced mouthfeel that is nice. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 6.2%. Overall this is a nice IPA. all around nice complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/earthy hops and moderate bready malt flavors; very smooth and refreshing to drink for the style. Would be a good entry level IPA. Not too bitter; but still has nice hop complexity, with a bit more malt presence. A nicely enjoyable offering.

PanMarek (302) - Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 21, 2016
Cloudy dark golden pour with quick, slightly beige foam. Balanced hoppy and malty nose with touches of caramel and pine. Light body, light fizz, slightly watery. The hops come out in the taste giving it a bitter, resinous finish. Good balance of hops and moderate bitterness overall.

Middle of the road IPA. Bottle in Florida. Cheaper than most and it tells. Little zing in the taste. But better than cold tea.

thellgren (860) - Helsinki, FINLAND - OCT 8, 2016
Draught at Kittys Public House, Helsinki. Appearance is amber and cloudy with a nice head. This is quite bitter, no citrus flavors or any other fruits from the hops. OK in a way but a bit boring just lots of bitter hops and thats it.

Hoppy profile, floral, golden with a good white head not very persistant, light body, medium carbonation, floral again...a good apa for me.
