KajII (800) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - DEC 31, 2012
12oz Can. The pour was a clear copper orange with an average (1-2 finger) off white bubbly head that reduced down to a thin puddled film and small collar with excellent sticky sheets of lacing. The aroma was of a light biscuit malt, pine hops and a soapy yeast with notes of caramel, toffee, citrus (grapefruit) and a light tropical fruitiness (pineapple I believe). The taste was lightly malty sweet with a hint of caramel and a mild fruitiness from the start, becoming nice and hoppy with dose of citrus, a hint of toffee and a bitter citrus peel ending. The flavor lasted for a good long time following the swallow, with a slightly sweet bitter hoppy taste that was left to linger for a while longer. Mouthfeel was a few steps above light in body with an exceptionally dry texture and a carbonation that was a little more than mild. Overall this was a decent enough IPA with a good strong bitterness along with a touch of fruit and mild sweetness, making this a nice and easy to drink brew...

// 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 (60) - 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.

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.
