Poured into a golden brown ale that emitted notes of herbal hop. Initial taste of astringency followed by a honey taste that ended with a slight bittersweet. Not as strong as some IPAs Ive had, but its definitely a memorable beer.

Quack-Duck (9207) - Down South, GERMANY - MAR 4, 2010
bottle from Bierzwerg. Clear golden colour, large and very creamy white head. Hoppy nose with lots of citrus fruit. Full-bodied, solid malty base complemented by lots of citrusy and pine-like hops. Hints of lemon, lemon grass and herbs, also pine-tree. Very nice indeed!

Big guys can still do it. Grapefruit and other citrus notes throughout. Really a great beer.

Torpedo is one of my favorites. Sierra Nevada is great because not only is it good beer, it is usually priced very reasonably. Their pale ale is also great

My expectations where high on this one. Aroma was bright and hoppy. Flavor was very nice, sweet and juicy. Very Hoppy, yet very drinkable. Want more!

DerWeg (1598) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 2, 2010
Pours ruddy gold w/ gold highlights and pale beige head. Smell orange citrus fruits and yeast and hint sulfur. Taste powerfully bitter hops and orange and some mineral, taste carries on in bitter grapefruit peel and grassy taste, and under this is some support of sweet fruit and fresh grainy bread. I sunk your battleship.

ttutony (852) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 1, 2010
Copper color in the glass. Really pleasant Cascade-like hop aroma with citrus notes. Very smooth and well-balanced on the palate, overall just a very easy to drink IPA.

MoritzF (9500) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - FEB 28, 2010
(bottle, 35.5cl) Slightly unclear, amber colour with a thick off-white foamy head. Fruit-accented and spicy, slightly piney hoppy aroma with a slightly bready (cara-)malty touch. Bitter and slightly sweet flavour, medium to full bodied with a slightly crispy carbonation. Cara-malty and fruity and spicy hoppy taste with an almost dry and moderately bitter finish torpedo-ed by notes of alcohol. Compared with the parallelly sampled Anniversary Ale this one is less rounded. One more example that the stronger brew is not necessarily the better one. 20.II.10

Hoppy. Mmmmmm. Sweet and juicy hoppiness thats grapefruit, piney and grassy. But I like it. Usually I dont liek the hops that are more grassy related but ive come around to liking pine, and these are very green-flavored hops, but the beer has an extremely balanced, sweet flavor to it so you get the dry bitterness in the mouth and on the swallow, but in the finish is cools down to a more sweet wet finish. Very good IPA.
