The next time Great Britain decides to colonize a country, this is the IPA it should bring along. It will stand up to all kinds of climatic conditions and it should last a good long time.
It pours a cloudy copper with a thin beige head and some wisps of lace. The aroma is a potent fresh floral hop, reminiscent of a gigantic, freshly broken cannabis bud (as I imagine one might smell). A nice sweet malty aroma attempts to get noticed early, but makes a quick exit, backstage, in the wings. A rich caramel sweet malt is lightly toasty, and ever so subservient to the dominant hops it shares its home with. The home is really a happy threesome as their good friend, Al Cohol cozies up and shares in the love. The three amigos enjoy the company of good friends, Ester O'Pine, Cam Phor and Red Grapefruit (so what if that's not her real name). This is one very tasty brew...world-class brew, that is!

Got a growler on the way out of Portland, bring it on the plane !
Light orange, clear IPA. Nice 1/2 inch white foamy head poured into my 10 barrel medium side snifter.
Mild bite from the IPA, nice mild grapefruit, hoppy flavor, very pleasant to drunk, even though it is over 9 %.
Mouthfeel seems 'bout right, a little malty goodness when you 'foam' it up in your mouth.
I would drink this every time at the airport, a nice find there , will probably add it in the cart now, from time to time. Drink it !
