larsga (7470) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAR 21, 2010
UPDATED: JUN 8, 2011 Biggish offwhite head. Amber body with strong carbonation. Fruity resiny grassy hop aroma with honey, mango, and caramel notes. Bitter-sweet caramelly mango hop taste with roasty floral resiny notes. Some astringency, but otherwise mild mouthfeel. Fullish body. Dry citric mango and wood aftertaste with spicy floral notes. Excellent! Complex, drinkable, and interesting. (0.33l bottle, Systembolaget, Stockholm.)

Pours a orange-amber color with a khaki head about 1.5 cm thick. Head dies to a ring soon enough. Aroma is a mix of floral scents, hops, and some malt. Taste is more of the same only that the hops are stronger as you can taste the bitterness as it goes down. Maybe some citrus hints in there as well. Overall well carbonated and dry. Now this is just my personal bias, but Im not a huge fan of IPAs, especially really dry ones like this, so I dont find this that drinkable.

tkrjukoff (4332) - SWEDEN - MAR 20, 2010
Dark amber color with a nice fluffy head. Sweet roasted malt and hoppy aroma with hint of grapefruit. Sweet very hoppy taste with citrus. Palate is great and the aftertaste is long.

From my notes: Bottle from Winking Lizard; pours a deep amber color with a decent off-white head; laces well. Pine and grapefruit on the nose, accentuated by floral notes. Pine, grapefruit, pepper, and caramel flavors on the tongue. Medium-full bodied. I remember liking this one.

kromamc (191) - ITALY - MAR 14, 2010
bevuta al serpente pub... ottima ipa della sierra a met tra la pale ale e la harvest come corpo e impiego dei malti ma la luppolatura decisamente rinforzata rendendola abbastanza resinosa con sentori floreali pompelmo citrico leggero..... il corpo medio e il maltato leggero lamaro finale abbastanza lungo e marcato...

ruyehara88 (49) - Killeen, USA - MAR 13, 2010
Deep orange pour, not much of a head. Relatively thick mouthfeel. Nice on the tongue. Taste is mainly of hops (citrus). Long bitter aftertaste. Hops dont overwhelm which is nice. Light carbonation. I wish I could get more of an aroma except I just took a shower. Will have to rerate at another point but from what I can tell, very good beer. Would be a good beer with a variety of foo.

JasonG (776) - Salt Lake City, Utah, USA - MAR 13, 2010
12 oz bottle - pours a deep golden color with medium sized fluffy pure white head. Aroma has herbal, slightly citrusy hops, hints of honey, lemon zest, and grains of paradise. Flavor has dry herbal hops, hint of grapefruit and honey, touch of balancing malts, with a firmly bitter finish. Overall this is a bit more firmly bitter than their pale ale, pretty decent overall.
