deyholla (7008) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JAN 23, 2011
On tap at the brewpub. Poured a near clear gold with a white head that dissipated to the edges and laced slightly. Aroma was mainly piney with a bit of backing grapefruit and grass. Flavor began with pine, which remained strong through out the beer as was backed by a combination of grain, hay and grass.

On tap at the Alchemist on my way to Hill Farmstead for BWBDV. Pours orange, hazed with a medium sized white head. Awesome aromas, super clean citrus hops, big sticky pine. Great hop flavors. Juicy and earthy. Long quinine and grapefruit on the finish. Great stuff.

Tap. Hazy orange-gold with foamy off-white head. Aroma is herbal with grass, rose, pepper, chamomile and citrus. Flavors of grain, citrus, pine, chocolate milk, chamomile and rose. Slightly tannic. Astringent hop bite. Medium body with a full mouthfeel. Unique. Like a super-hopped ESB.

lefossoyeur (470) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 5, 2010
Golden blonde with a nice white head. Lots of citrus and resinous hops with a long bitter finale. very thirst question. Personnaly one of the best session IPA I’ve had in my life. And at 5,2% it’s more than welcomed.

Had this beer as part of Beer Quest 2010 with the guys. This was beer number 34. Pours a medium gold. Aroma is full of hops and grapefruit. Well balanced flavor. What you would expect from an IPA, bitter hops are controlling.
