Bottle: Poured a copper color ale with a large foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of light dry bitter hops with a good caramel malt backbone. Taste is also a nice mix between some dry and lightly citrusy hops with a bitter finish and a strong caramel malt backbone. Body is average with good carbonation. Not bad overall but I was expecting more citrusy flavor from this beer.

Large off-white head over the copper coloured brew. Actually a little unclear.

The smell is surprisingly weak. It is bitter and malty.

Hoppy taste with strong elements of citrus fruits. Metallic elements lurking somewhere in the shadows. The carbonation is relatively mild.

Aftertaste is grassy with loads of hoppy bitterness. Perhaps the strongest point of this beer.

Given to me in exchange for some computer support. A million thanks to Z's mom!

thanks maria. Pours cloudy grapefruit colour, with initial creamy head that lessens itself into droplets of lace, down the sides of my glass. Subdued aroma for an IPA. Fresh. Grapefruit and pine and significant creaminess. Satisfying IPA. Warming after effect.

Batch #145.

The colour is copper; the liquid is a little hazy (it is bottle conditioned). The foam almost explodes when the beer is poured. It sinks slowly down to a two finger very uneven head with a solid crater, while leaving lots of lacing.

The smell is quite powerful with lots of citric notes: Sweet grapefruits, bitter oranges. Hints of nuts and coffee, some yeast and fresh bread.

The taste is fresh and hoppy with some interesting notes of mild coffee in the background. There are lots of flavours, but it is not as aggressive as some American IPAs tend to be. There are sour citric notes (Cascade and Centennal hops are used) – grape fruits, bitter oranges and a hint of lemon peels. I found some notes of beef broth and sweet fruit candy, too. The aftertaste is sour-bitter with a twist of sweet apples and canned apricots.

The carbonation is mild; the many bubbles are very small. The liquid is smooth.

Overall, a very pleasant and balanced beer with an American touch and an interesting hint of coffee.

This beer pours a golden amber with an off-white head that sticks around for a little while with only minor lacing. The smell is of cascade hops as one might expect from an American IPA. The taste is on the bitter side but sweet at the same time. The mouthfeel is very interesting as the carbonation allows this beer to really tingle the tongue. It is also a very drinkable beer.

Since I recently tried one of the best American IPAs on tap at the BrewPub in Denmark, I am probably a little harsh with my numbers.
A: Pours a light golden with a slight sustained head.
S: Smells hoppy!
T: The taste is of fruit and hops, but there is a slight bitter note that does not belong with the overall taste. It is not overwhelmingly bad, but it is probably an artifact of one of the hop varieties they chose.
M: This beer is light to medium in body with mild carbonation and goes down in an almost-smooth manner.
D: Easy to drink as it is well-rounded. Doesn't do anything special for me, but makes me wish I had a little more of the smell and taste (which I suppose is a good thing because it is at least on the right track).
