An oldey but a goody. Great floral notes and an easy finish... You dont find many IPAs like this these days.

bottle @ parents. Appearance: clear golden with ok soapy white head and lacing. aroma/taste: grain, grapefruit and some floral notes. Palette: medium us hoppy aroma, average carbonation, medium body, average sweetness, balanced by a medium to notable bitterness, average duration and a watery texture. Overall: quite decent ipa

MisterTrick (6) - Olney, Maryland, USA - MAR 10, 2017 does not count
the aroma is nice and hoppy, a bit too bitter and sour for my taste, after taste is a little to bitter

This one isnt very good at all, but it isnt terrible. It doesnt smell much of anything except maybe a frat, which isnt a great thing. It looks like any old beer. It basically tastes like a pale lager that had a dollop of hops injected on top. Its drinkable, but not really good or complex or interesting. A beer to chug and move on from. Good for watching your gorgeous girlfriend cook 3 meals at once while you listen to a Gilbert Gottfried podcast.

19Oracolo78 (159) - ITALY - MAR 5, 2017
UPDATED: MAR 5, 2017 Birra dal colore dorato. Schiuma bianca, fine e poco persistente. All?olfatto sentori di agrumi e fiori. Al palato corpo leggero con note di agrumi, fiori e caramello. Nel finale rimane amara e un po? secca. Una birra molto beverina ma niente di emozionante.

Rex_Remes (192) - Bonyhad, HUNGARY - JAN 7, 2017
UPDATED: FEB 18, 2017 (12 oz bottle, 6.2% ABV, Virginia USA) AROMA: medium hops, green, fresh bread. APPEARANCE: slightly cloudy, medium straw yellow, good visible carbonation, light head, some residual oily lacing. TASTE: solid/moderate hops and malt taste upfront, some cloves, pine/resin, tobacco, touch of anice on the finish. PALATE: crisp and sparkly upfront, slight crwmy texture, dry hoppy finish. OVERALL: decent beer, not super hopped as many craft IPAs but ok hop flavor and bitterness. More standard ale-like instead of classic IPA. Respectable ale that would be a solid every day beer with decent body and flavor.

One of the least hoppy IPAs I have tried. Poured well with a nice head. The rest rather uninspiring.

Thin head and light colour with quite a few bubbles.Not a very strong aroma or taste for an IPA.

Brewhemia (293) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 21, 2016
Interesting candy sweet aroma (synthetic apple and pear and gummibears). When swirled around some grassy aroma apears as well, but still its not a very nice ipa aroma in my opinion. The taste is light sweet and moderate to low bitter for an ipa. Not much ale fruitiness though some in the finish which is quite ok. Still not a great ipa I think.
