I'm very excited to try the infused versions of this IPA now that I know the base ale is so solid. Hop Nosh pour copper orange. Aromatics are floral, grassy, piney, and citrusy. Pine, grapefruit, orange, grass, leaves, and fruit peel flavors. Slightly peppery note. Bitterness is fairly aggressive, but there's some fat caramel malt to keep it in balance. Tasty stuff.

nice and powerful hop fragrant and mellow in stages with a dank kind of caramel malt right in there. really quite velvet like and smooth yet substantial in the body. a bit of fruit mingles in quite nice as it does nothing to disturb the other dimensions doing they're thing.you know the alcohol is there and you like it. nice and kinda tight in the finish with a bit of candy like fruit. tastes aged.

355ml can. Pours a hazy orange with a large, frothy, long lasting, off-white head that leaves curtains of lace. Sweet fruity aroma of caramel malt, peach, orange, grapefruit, pine and grass. Sweet flavour of caramel malt, bread, grapefruit, orange peel, peach and pine resin with a dry, hoppy, bitter grass finish. Medium body with an oily texture and soft carbonation. Nice.

12 oz. can bb 12/28/2017. Deep orange, almost copper brew. Big spongy foam settles to a sticky meringue topping. Aroma is dank resinous herb, light citrus zest, earthy caramel, bread and a touch of garlic. Flavor is the same, plus some oregano in the middle and then a wooden finish. Almost medium body has smooth low-medium fizz and a dry slant.

Rated on 9-17-2017. (Can Best Before 11/13/17) The appearance is a medium sized smooth, frothy cream head that mostly diminished, hazy orange body, fast rising carbonation, and spotty lacing. The aroma is citrus hops, grapefruit, grass, toffee, bready, and malt. The flavor presents moderate bitterness, citrus hops, pine hops, grapefruit, juicy, light spice, caramel malt, and lightly sweet. The mouthfeel is moderate carbonation and this beer is medium bodied. This beer has a bitter finish and aftertaste to it. It is quite tasty, worth trying and a beer that I would purchase again.

An old favorite that is suspiciously cheap so surprised we had not rated it before. Pours a golden amber classic IPA color and smells like wet boxer shorts and hops. The taste is a tad bit of bitter and some malty rounded oats dancing alongside some citrus mush. Very easy drinking and chuggable for a 7.3 ABV. Good for listening to some classic Scharpling & Wurster while chugging chicken soup with your boo boo sicky.

DATE: September 10, 2017... OCCASION: week one of football continues...Browns lose another opener.... GLASSWARE: Maudite snifter... pours a robust, prototypical amber body, with ample effervescence building a single-finger head that thickly coats the glass in white.... the lacing is irregular but tangible... caramel and grapefruit meet at the first whiff... light resin, dank basement, and doughy malts fight for air time... all in all, suggestive of balance... the first sip is medium-bodied, stocky, blunted at the teeth and rounded at the throat... deceptively hides its strength in a crunchy, chewy mouthfeel... the caramel almost usurps the resin, but enough citric fruits--grapefruit, most prominently--with lemon and apple also late... this beer is a sipper disguised as an easy-drinking IPA...

On tap pours out a golden topped with a white head. Nose is orange Citrus tangerines some bread malt. Taste is more of the nice hop profile Citrus oranges some Pine a little bit of grass the Tangerine sweetness rounds it out along with a light bread malt.
