fidelis83 (2270) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - MAR 4, 2014
Hazy dark amber to copper cored pour with a 2 finger, soapy beige head. Aroma starts with super fruity hops with a nice bite, a full gamut of citrus, lots of floral and a little tart tropical fruit, then some tart berry, mild toast, sweet biscuit and some floral/fruity notes that I cant exactly pin down. Flavor is tree and berry fruit, caramel and biscuit up front, then citrus, floral, passion fruit-tropical, earthy and herbal hops, lots of fruity, berry perfume and light, but noticeable spicy, phenolic notes. Medium body, oily, syrupy and a hint of creaminess throughout along with a medium carbonation. Really tasty stuff, there are a couple off notes, but overall it was very enjoyable.

12 oz. bottle. Pours a hazy dark gold color with a thick white head that eventually settles to a film leaving plenty of lacing. At first a weak hop aroma but after it warmed I picked up an orange-like citrus aroma. Medium body and sticky, the flavor leans more toward the pine hops with a sweet malt background. The finish continues the hop theme. Pretty good!

Big bottle shared. Poured into a tulip glass. Light clear orange in color. Aroma of weak hops. Light to medium carbonation. Light to medium bodied beer. Taste is light to medium sweet with a medium bitterness. Hoppy with notes of resin and grass. Overall a sort of mid way IPA. Half way between the true bitter IPAs and the Citrus sweet like IPAs. Not bad. Overall enjoyable. Cannot find a bottled date, possibly an older bottle and better enjoyed fresh.

MrHangover (4254) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - FEB 22, 2017
Bottle. Pours a clear orange beer with a small bright white head on top. Aroma is hoppy, grapefruit, malty ands zesty. Has some west coast influences in there. Flavor is nice and bitter, dark fruits, caramel, molasses and bitter cookies. Has a nice juicy mouthfeel and a nice level of carbonation. Good balance with the bitterness and drinkability. Very decent stuff.

Totally decent, fairly old school, classic American IPA. Lots of grass, good mouthfeel, orangey notes and moderate bitternes. Good, long aftertaste,

Hoppy, hoppier, the hoppiest - that is what this beer tastes like. An impressive hoppy craft beer of the best type. Highly recommendable in not too large amounts.
