12oz can hand delivered from Colorado... Thanks Nick! Pours a dark orange amber with a slight off white head. Scent is crisp orange and grapefruit with resinous hops. Taste is very piney and resinous up front with a bit of grapefruit and quite bitter. Has a bit of sticky mouth feel and the hop bomb lingers after it has been consumed. Tasty IPA.

// Beeroda.hu Tasting Sessions @ Budapest 2016. Malt sweetness, with fairly dank and mildly citrus hop profile: strong body without being too sweet. Good stuff.

A shot in the dark to try this beer. Never heard of it. Purchased in a six pack of cans at the local grocery store. Opens very well with a impressive dark yellow amber color with a swell tall off-white foam which goes the distance. I detect juniper and a slight floral. A sip gives pine, citrus, some grassiness. Nice but not memorable. It ends with a decent bitterness lingering until I sipped again. The 6.8% alcohol is well hidden but quite welcome.

EerieDrinks (56) - Malm, SWEDEN - NOV 23, 2016
Frothy 3 finger slightly offwhite head that leaves lacing on the glass. Slightly hazy, deep amber coloured beer. Aroma is mostly orange, grapefruit and mango, with a hint of peach and used dishcloth. Taste is piney, grapefruit peel upfront and orange, malty sweetness together with a nice bitterness at the back. The taste lingers for a long time which is really nice. Good taste but not enough bite for a higher score. Impressive stickyness for a regular IPA. Overall a tasty, dangerously drinkable IPA at 6,8% ABV.

Andrew196 (1620) - Katy, Texas, USA - NOV 20, 2016
Can to Glass - pours a golden amber, nice sticky head, heavy lace. Aroma is orange, grapefruit, resin, biscuit. Pretty standard, well made double IPA. Creamy with spice... Nice soft citrus taste to it, very fresh hop profile, pleasant bitter finish.

From time to time, I will do a dual (or triple) comparison of beers. This is one of those times. Fruity nose; nice dark orange hue; front pallet of an orange citrus with a smooth hop balance. Finished with a lingering back pallet malty bitterness. NOTE: Very similar to La Cumbre Elevated II IPA except not quite the hop bite and while I love that bite, this one is a tick over the top (SKA=4; LaCumbre=3.9).

Skinnyviking (9137) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 28, 2016
Sample at the brewery. High creamy white lasting head. Clear amber body. Fruity hoppy grass dry aroma and flavor with a low carbonation and a long finish.
