500ml bottle.

It pours a nice light golden color with a fluffy, rocky head.

The smell isn't too powerful. Some grape and malt.

The flavor is okay. The hops aren't really doing much for me, neither is the malt. Overall it is pretty bland.

It is okay but not worth the price, wow is it overpriced. (299 characters)

A: Poured from a bottle to a pint glass. Had a bright orange-yellow color and a cloudy texture. There were two inches of foamy, long-lasting head. Very good lacing.

S: A very hoppy aroma, with traces of some fruit as well.

T: Like the smell, the flavor had a huge amount of hops - almost a bit too much. Grapefruit and pineapple in the finish. A bit unbalanced, but not offensively so.

M: A good amount of carbonation with a slick finish. Medium-bodied.

O: While this beer has its flaws it's still pretty enjoyable. (519 characters)

On-tap at Beachwood I,

A: Pours a medium orange with a nice white head, leaving solid lace.

S: Nice tropical fruit, pineapple with a hint of passion fruit, and grass.

T: Grassy hop flavour overall, but the mix of citrus - mandarin orange, grapefruit with the pineapple is quite enjoyable. Malt flavour is minimal.

M: Clean and crisp, medium-bodied overall.

O: A very well made IPA from Denmark. Expensive, but you get a good product. (438 characters)

On draft at Churchkey. Beer is slightly hazy and amber with low carbonation no lacing thin head.

Aroma is earthy, mildly piny but also vegetal.

Beer is thin and really vegetal. It is odd but finishes bitter. The entire beer is eclipsed by this off hop flavor. I don't think it is very good and I won't have it again. (320 characters)

On-tap at Beachwood BBQ, on to the beer:

Dark copper colored with hues of orange. The head is persistent and leaves some lace around the glass. Its aroma takes on the character of "Old School" IPA's that are more mellow and herbal, not the "in your face" type commmon among many American brewers now. Its herbal with a little grapefruit. It's a prelude to what comes in the taste, a mellow IPA of herbal and citrus character. Light-medium bodied, not too difficult to drink, and not too bitter.

Respectable, but given it was $7.50 for a 12 ounce pour, not worth a second purchase. And no, the value in bottles isn't much better either. (638 characters)

Poured into a small tumbler at Churchkey on tap.

An off white small head is poured giving to a pale orange and very hazy body. nice lacing of small concentric lacing while drinking but that's really all there is to this. Body color looks a little messy.

Bouquet is mild but also distinctly grassy. Somewhat vegetative, distinc sense of chlorophyl and grass like hop. Nothing much else going here, kind of disappointing.

Taste is a hop with a mild butter sense and oolong tea. Soft bodied I will admit with some degree of wetness. Tea sense brings out oolong and chamomile herbal in the palate. Finish though of hop profile isn't very obvious but is a distinct bitter than really sticks around.

Overall kind of ordinary, but there's worse that could be done. (769 characters)
