A- Pours a hazy copper color with a small, off white head. S- Pine, caramel, light malt presence T- light lemon rind, caramel, pine, hop bitterness, wave of residual sweetness. M- Medium/thin bodied with ample carbonation. D- Not a whole lot of complexity, slightly unbalanced with the sweet notes. Even so, decently drinkable IPA that hides the booze well.

On Tap. Really impressed with this wet hop IPA. great aroma, and everything else fit perfectly in place - delicious citrus flavor without being overly bitter, nice resiny hops. I am surprised this one doesnt have a higher rating. Highly Recommended.

Bottle shared by Ed5388, while sharing this one Ed told me he loves me. Poured a deep clear amber body with a small saopy bright white head. Aroma of pine needles, earth, old citrus rinds, grapefruits and oranges, lemon zest. Thinner body which has lighter carbonation and an average duration on the aftertaste. Flavor of citrus, lots of rinds, sweetness, orange marmalade, taost and grains. Solid.

StefanSD (2083) - Lakeside, California, USA - OCT 25, 2013
750 ml bottle from Picadilly. Pours a hazy amber-copper color with a medium white head that has ample sticky lacing and fair retention. The aroma is medium in strength with oranges, grapefruit and herbs. The taste features bitter grapefruit, some limes and perhaps a smidge of tangerines. The palate is full and smooth with soft carbonation. The finish is somewhat disappointing and short. Overall: The flavors seemed just a bit washed out and lacking in impact. That aside its quite tasty.

brystmar (1190) - Dallas, Texas, USA - OCT 21, 2013
Appearance lacks the beauty of Chinook. Gold with a ring of lace. Smells like fresh hop pellets, a little earthy, not particularly interesting but not bad either I guess.

Dogbrick (7634) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - OCT 14, 2013
This beer pours a clear deep copper color with a medium creamy off-white head that dissipates slowly. Sticky rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of hops, pine and toffee. Medium-bodied with flavors of resiny hops, roasted malt and fruit. The finish is hoppy with a pine and toffee aftertaste. Decent overall.
