pinkie (470) - New York, USA - JAN 22, 2013
UPDATED: JAN 31, 2013 Poured a clear and vivid orange with a decent head that fell down reluctantly. Chunky lacing. Bright hops nose with lots of slick pine and sweet citrus. No malt to speak of on the nose. On the palate its got medium body and good carbonation. Its bedeviled with hops but lacking in balance without a bigger malt character to back it up. Goes down oily with a good bitter aftertaste. A very plucky ale. Easy to drink and a clean, long finish.

I am not big on aromas, but this one has a strong pleasant, hoppy scent with a hint of fruit. In fact I liked it more than the taste - which was typical bitter IPA, with bitter aftertaste. Not spicy (though it claims to be). I dont like spicy beers so this was actually a positive for me. Overall, it is better than some of the IPAs I have tried, though Troegs Blizzard of Hops has a better taste in my opinion.

ordybill (1664) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - APR 1, 2017
Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass at Taco Mac in Peachtree City. The appearance is a slightly cloudy copper color with a medium sized off-white colored head. The aroma is citrus hops. The taste is similar to the nose, citrus and some slight malt in the background. An excellent IPA.

mrjez (582) - Osaka, JAPAN - MAR 31, 2017
Tried in bottle before, this time on tap at TNT. Unfortunately the glass it was served in had a stale B.O. aroma that took a while to clear, but once it did I got plenty of pine and sweet malts, old school east coast. Great looking clear bronze and lacing. Flavour as expected, piney and sweet, balanced well for easy drinking. Sharpish carbonation with moderate bitterness. No bells and whistles, just a clean strong IPA you could drink a few of no problem.

Nitro pour at brewery. Amber body, slight haze, soft creamy head. Malts dominate the aroma, brown bread, pumpernickel. Niterness slowly comes in st the taste, malts still prevalent. Not as hoppy as you would think based on the name. More English.

PowY (595) - AUSTRIA - JAN 28, 2017
355 ml bottle. Pours a clear amber with a large off-white head. The aroma is medium malty - caramel, breadish - with light note of hop - pine and citric fuits. Medium body with a low carbonation, a light sweetness and a light to medium bitterness. The taste is malty - caramel, toasted biscuit - with some piny hop notes, hints of peach. Overall a very clean and very balanced IPA but nothing overly exciting.
