330ml bottle served in a pint mug. Purchased at "Il Regno di Gambrinus" in Villorba. Thanks Paolo for your great beer selection!

A: Pours a clear orange color with a medium white to yellow aired head. Medium retention and many nice lacings left. Some particles cab be seen floating around

S: Throws off a delicious and refreshing bouquet of flowery and grassy hops. That's what we can call best in business. Caramel, caramel malts

T: Follows the nose. Slightly sweet caramel upfront, followed by caramel malts and a bitter hoppy end. Hops are a must, as expected: grassy, piny and a bit earthy. A bit metallic sensation too

M: Medium molasses body. Good carbonation. No alcohol can be felt despite the 7.1% ABV. Delicious bitter aftertaste

O: Absolutely drinkable beer. Absolutely well done. Goes to my top 10 American IPA list :)

A: Pours a crystal clear golden orange to copper in color with some very light amounts of visible carbonation. The beer has a finger tall beige head that quickly reduces to a thin film with a single thick patch and a thicker ring at the edges of the glass. Significant lacing is observed.

S: There is a light sweetness to the aroma with some hints of lighter fruits (pear and green grape). There is a heavy presence of both floral and pine hops.

T: The taste definitely follows the smell for this beer, it starts with some sweet caramel toasted malts and light fruits (pear and green grape). After that, the hop characteristics really come through with both floral and pine hops contributing to the bitterness. There is a mild hop bitterness but it does not really linger.

M: Medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Smooth and a very slight amount of chewiness.

O: I find this to be a very approachable and easy to drink American IPA. This beer is definitely one that I would enjoy a couple of during a session though I think the bitterness and higher ABV would not make this a session beer. There is a nice complexity to the smell and the taste and a very nice balance between the sweetness and the bitterness.

2 month old 12 oz bottle poured into a pint glass.
The pour yields a clear golden/copper like body with a finger of white head.
The nose hits with with sweetness and some subdued fruit, pine, and floral.
An assertive hop bitterness takes a hold at first and holds throughout. Piney and fruity. You pick up on the alcohol. Some sweet malt. The taste doesn’t scream beer of fame to me. The flavor seems fairly mild.
A good beer for sure...just not sure I would buy this again with so many other great IPA's lining the shelves. I would probably be up for trying a bottle under a month old if that ever happens.

12oz bottle poured into a globe. Bottled on 1/23/12.

A: Hazy orange-copper body with an attractive one-finger head. Some lacing but nothing exceptional.

S: Resinous pine with some lemon/grapefruit.

T: Relatively light and balanced for a sturdy IPA. Pine with light earthy yeast. More yeast than I’m accustomed to tasting in an IPA but it works.

M: Alcohol is pretty well hidden. Medium body, medium soft carb. Somewhat of a metallic and dry finish.

O: It’s a nice IPA that I’d be happy to have handed to me any time. The balanced malt and hops plus pronounced yeast notes make this interesting.

Copper-tinted amber in the tulip glass. Rather coarse carbonation. Kind of sweet and citrusy with some pineapple as well. Interesting aromatics but fairly flat in the flavor profile. A little fruit in the aroma, more orange in the nose. Hoppy with an increasing grapefruit rind flavor as you sip. Thoroughly bitter aftertaste. Sharp with that acid twang of many IPAs.

Label says bottled on: Oct 26 2011. You wouldn't think it would over the hill in just a few months, but that's the way it tastes. More cardboard than flowers.
