Hazy amber pour with a slight offwhite head. Aroma is slightly perfumed, with some floral hoping and a bit of sweet caramel malt. Flavor is sweet and fruity hoppy, rather drinkable with a slight alcohol warmth. Not spectacular but pretty good.

22 oz. bottle via trade with smith4498 - Pours a hazy amber color with a 2/3 finger thick off white head. Aroma is floral and herbal hops with a touch of soap. Very light lacing. Flavor is herbal and pine hops with a nice bit of lightly sweetened malt to balance in out. No lingering astringent aftertaste. Medium body. A pleasant, very drinkable IPA. Thanks Jason.

Dark cloudy amber pour with a big off-white head. Citrus hops, a little sweet aroma. Flavor is predictably big on hops, floral notes, a little sweet at the end. Consistency is a little thick. Good stuff.

GG (2332) - NorCal, California, USA - OCT 26, 2009
A rather enjoyable IIPA from Shipyard, and clearly a notch above their b-wine. The beer pours out a clear golden/amber body with a rather large creamy beige head. Aroma is decidedly grapefruits but there’s also enough biscuity/caramel malts to really notice. The alcohol also asserts itself in the aroma. The flavor is mostly sweet for a IIPA. Lots of residual sugars left behind it seems. Grapefruit keeps things in check with the style department and some floral notes really escape, which was nice. Finish is hot with alcohol with a tight bitterness. Pretty nice.

Miksu (5046) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - OCT 25, 2009
0.65 l bottle at Stockholm Beer Festival 2009. Hazy amber color. Sweet and juicy hop aroma with mango, apricot and lemon. Sweetish firmly bitter flavor with toffeish malt and fruity hops featuring mango, apricot and lemon. Fairly thick body, not very drinkable. I would prefer this dryer.
