Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: StJamesGate on 09-01-2013

A tropical storm originating in the North Atlantic Ocean, it rotates in the opposite direction to a Cyclone. This IPA only uses punchy American hops: Simco, Citra and Mosaic giving a fruit, lemon and pine taste bomb. Get it now while it’s Hurricane season – this Category Five brew will do more than tickle the taste buds.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 4

Poured a cloudy copper colour.

Smelled mostly of citrus and floral hops, with a hint of spiciness.

Tasted surprisingly malty, for an IPA, with mellow floral and citrus hops throughout. Doesn't taste like most American IPAs. Had a hint of pine at the end with a lingering bitterness.

Would suit non-IPA drinkers.

Would I buy it again? Yes.

On tap at Farrington's, Dublin.

Rusty amber with a snow white collar with lace.
Big mashed mango nose, with some resin and herb underneath.
Apricot up front with a bit of yellow plum, jam and caramel then resin, a bit of cat and Orangina for hops.
Pink grapefruit finish and orange rind linger.
Medium, oily, good chew.

Brewed with Mosaic, Simcoe and Citra; the American entry for Eight Degrees' #hopoff.

Solid, chunky IPA with lots of angles for the hop character - it's possible to trace all three varieties. Nice to see something with no C hops. Shapes of Sierra Nevada in balance and craftsmanship.

L: Poured into my 8° glass had a medium to large head pours hazy amber in colour and has very little carbonation. Hope the flavour makes up for the lack of carbonation....

S: Smells of citrus fruits. Can tell this is going to be sour but hopefully not overpowering.

T: Wow this is nice. A huge lemon zing to it and very sour on first drink but becomes easier to consume the more you have.

F:Still cant get over the long lasting acidity on the cheaks and the lovely aftertaste. Very light and easy to consume with a sour aftertaste.

O: Another great beer from Eight Degrees kinda let down by the carbonation but makes up in taste :)

Had 330ml bottle in Eastern Seaboard on 1 February. It's 5.8% not 7% as listed here. This is an American style hop bomb to be really delivers. Fantastic citrus, grapefruit and pine flavours. Bitter aftertaste but not too bitter. I prefer American style IPAs and this is probably one of the best Irish ones around. A brilliant beer all round. Well done 8•
