12 oz bottle poured into nonic. Perfectly clear, bright copper-orange liquid with a finger of orange tinged white head that settles to a thin layer of foam that stays around but doesn’t lay down any lacing. The aroma consists of orange juice, citrus peel, melon, strawberry, pine, caramel, and herbal hops. The taste is initially sweet with strong caramel, toasted grain, and tropical fruit flavors. The bitterness grows with each sip and features citrus, herbal, and pine hops. Medium body, resinous, sticky texture, soft carbonation, and a dry finish from hops and alcohol.

Wow, how times change. Always wanted to try this. Now days it it is a bit heavy handed on the initial bittering and heavy malt body. Definitely not an IPA in the modern sense, but 10 years ago I could see it. Solid, but time has passed it by.

Very overrated beer. Bitter, and nothing special at all. I bought a 12-pack with high hopes, but ended up disappointed. I am giving the other 11 away to friends.

Reddish amber pour with a small fluffy white head. Aromas of hops, citrus, resin and pine. Sweet caramel malt taste up front followed by cirtus fruits and floral hops. Very nice bitter sweet finish. Sweeter and more malty than I expected, but very flavorful, smooth and wonderfully balanced. I thoroughly enjoyed this offering. Can see myself knocking back a few of these.

Hoppy and delightful. Pours an amber-golden color and clear, with a citrusy/piney aroma and a mouthful of yummy hops. Some good clean pine and orangey-grapefruit flavor behind, with hops coming up in front. Good for drinking in bed with cheese fries after a long day at work, as your sweet love tries to make you feel better. Always a favorite for solid and complex hoppy IPA flavors.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pour is a clear copper with a small white head. Aroma is a melon hop with some pine and caramel malt. Flavor is a fruity hop with a manageable bitterness. I also get some heavy but not overly sweet malt and a little resin left on the tongue. This was a decent beer but a bit too much malt for my liking. It’s not a sweet malt bomb but also not a real hop bomb as well.

35 cl can a fiend brought from NY. Dark amber color, clear, thick creamy offwhite head. Fresh resiny smell. Aroma is resiny, hoppy (dry hopping), caramel malts, yeast, a burnt note, some fusels, vague fruityness, minerals. Taste is structured, balanced, bitter. Texture is quite thick, average carbonation, full body. Aftertaste reminds me of dogfish iipa, mild alcoholic leftover. Quite nice.
