This beer was not as hoppy as I had hoped given the name. It didn’t seem to me to have very much of the floral aroma that many of the IPAs have. All in all not a bad beer though.
Draft. Solid IPA, with good hoppy aroma and flavor. Appropriately bitter finish. No off-flavors. Not sweet, and very drinkable. One of the best of the current breed of IPAs. JoeinDahlem (1641) - Berlin, GERMANY - APR 11, 2018
UPDATED: APR 11, 2018 Amber color, clear, beige foam, proper lacing and everything. Piney hops, caramel, notes of rubber and molasses (oxidation, not sure how fresh is the bottle). Light sweet caramel taste plowed by a brusque, resinous bitterness that sticks to the tongue. It stays true to an era. The latest un-bitter juice bombs kind of make me hanker for it. commonshawn (1383) - Minnesota, USA - APR 1, 2018
12oz bottle with commonmac and samalito. Mahogany color with medium white head. Sweeter aroma and taste than most ipas. Sugary and sticky. Rich in flavor and body. bavarian81 (177) - Massachusetts, USA - MAR 13, 2018
UPDATED: MAR 13, 2018 Poured a clear amber color. Aroma was pint hops and a subtle citrusiness. Taste is very bitter with some grapefruit up front. Bacchus66 (1203) - South Carolina, USA - FEB 11, 2018

Rating 1500 - Bottle - pours dark amber with a cream head. Aroma is grassy, resin and fruit. Taste is nice berry fruit up front with a drying fruity finish...not what I expected. ansalon (4372) - Stockholm, SWEDEN, SWEDEN - DEC 21, 2017

A clear dark amber beer with a well lasting fluffy white head. Intense hop aromas of mangoes, apricots, resin and other tropical sweet fruits. Sweet flavor with a slowly developing bitter, lingering finish. Low carbonation and drinkable body. For the ABV, a very drinkable and well balanc3d beercwith excellent hop aroma. WhichBrew (7) - Currumbin Waters, AUSTRALIA - NOV 26, 2017 does not count
This brew is a beautiful deep amber colour with a big creamy head. Rich aromas of malt and caramel with a hint of pine. Full flavoured, with plenty of carbonation and a lingering bitterness. A nice drop, but the flavour is perhaps a bit too overpowering to drink all night
