Kopparfrgad l med ltt vitt skum. Grs, maltstma och en aning tallbarr i doften. Inget av den populra fruktiga, citrushummelsorterna som man r van vid frn jnkarna. Gr detta till en lite annorlunda IPA.

Thechasm442 (828) - Chicago heights, Illinois, USA - MAY 23, 2012
From a can to a duvel tulip. Pours an amber orange with a light tan/off white 2 finger head that shrinks to a pinkey and leaves decent lacing. Aroma is strong pine. Theres something sweet there too. Taste is very bitter. Pine resin, grapefruit, and sweet caramel. Thin mouthfeel but the bitterness hangs on the back of the mouth. Not too bad and pretty sessionable.

12oz can @kampela. Amber, white frothy head. Very woodsly piney, hop coney, aroma with a strong citrus backing. Quite bitter, dry. Really an alpha lovers beer, the aroma is so intense and the bitterness just scorches your gums. After the initial hop overdose: warm, biscuity malts. A nice drink. Typical US over the top though, so might not please everyone. The finish is like ive been brushing my teeth with hop pellets.

Can. Very floral aroma, can smell i5 across the room! Piney hops, sweet backbone and a nice bitter linger. If you can find it, buy it and enjoy!

fidelis83 (2270) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - MAY 20, 2012
Pours a darkish amber with a 1 finger, creamy beige head. Aroma is loaded with citrus and pine, crusty white bread, bread dough, caramel, toast and light mineral notes. Flavor is big on toast and some ceral grain up front, then some mineral notes, fruity yeast, honey and floral hops. Citrus and pine hops wash over everything, surprisingly late in the game, in a good way, leaving a citrus, mineral and bitter hop finish. Palate is nicely light to medium and mostly crisp and clean, though there is a lightly oily feel in the middle and end along with a fairly light, but blanketing and a little sharp carbonation, which fits this beer really well. Nice IPA overall.

I love this IPA-- for one that is big and spicy, but not too heavy or syrupy, this vies with Green Flashs West Coast to be my favorite. . . and wins every time. What I like most about it is the combination of a relatively aggressive, but still well behaved carbonation with the sharp hops flavor that is only a degree or two short of "maximum tartness." Also, when I pour it, people regularly comment about the nice color and amazing floral aroma. Great beer. Im not sure what would make it better, which is a rare feeling for me.

PD4Ever (109) - Kansas City, Missouri, USA - MAY 15, 2012
12oz can dated best by 6/13/12 poured into tulip glass. Aroma: tons of floral hops, huge malt backbone and sweetness coming through. peaches and mangos. this smells amazing. Appearance: literally no head and no bubbles rising. amber orange color Taste: medium sweet and mild bitter. pretty bland Palate: finish is medium bitter, mild sour, mild sweet. carbonation is very weak. mouthfeel is thin. strange bitterness remains in your mouth and throat. Overall: When i smelled this i thought it was going to be great but the taste let me down and the aftertaste and mouthfeel were a real turn off. I wont pick this up again.

UPDATED: SEP 26, 2012 The rating below is for the tap version, but after trying the canned version, this beer will get his score increased from 3.1 to 3.9. The canned version is so bold and flavorful, with an amazing malty backbone, almost like a good DIPA. On tap at Euston Tap, London. Pours a clear copper colour with a minimal white head. Short lived foam. Aroma is hoppy on a malty base. Pine, grass and caramel. Taste is similarly balanced, with slight bitterness over a malty layer. Medium mouthfeel with soft carbonation. Overall, not bad by any mean, but certainly not something Ill remember forever.
