Nate (4114) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 19, 2016
On tap at Brunzies. Ozone, resin, pineapple, apricot. Dank and heady, with light sweet vapor. Cloudy golden-amber with creamy lacing off-white head. Medium body with a little heft and medium smooth carbonation. Strong hop taste with characteristic Nelson Sauvin profile. Moderate sweetness throughout, finishing with a burst of hop flavor and moderate bitterness. Light bitter after.

Draft to taster at cappy’s pour hazy light gold with thin white head. Nose floral, tropical fruit hop, sweeter flavors. Taste moderate bitter bite up front, then grassy, weedy, lemon hop. Taste a little disconnected from the nose. Moderate bitter through the finish.

luttonm (4489) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUN 11, 2016
Bottle in Seattle. Lovely wafting aroma. Solid funk, cheese, a little lemon. Some rye brashness. Bright white cream on cloudy yellow white body. Bright, kind of unusual appearance. Clean, full IPA. Sweet hops, Nelson, some grape must. Rye is in check and a nice compliment. Simply fantastic.

kevinator (1850) - The Colony, Texas, USA - JUN 8, 2016
Nice spicy and piney aroma and flavors. Mildly sweet and relatively complex. The kind of beer that would be easy to drink quite a few. Light caramel color and a medium body. Not too filling.

This is an absolutely amazing ipa. There’s a gigantic white wine characteristic from the Nelson Sauvin hops. Aroma is fruity, tropical and full of pungent hoppiness. Taste is again, white wine and tropical citrus juice. So many awesome flavors with a bone dry finish. I really loved this and highly recommend it. Cheers!

drpimento (3020) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 2, 2016
Man, this stuff tastes so good. Aroma is just right malt with true Nelson tart, fruity, but also a little resin. With these malts, super easy drinking. Slight chewy body. I want more!

kevd193213 (988) - Hope Valley, Rhode Island, USA - APR 3, 2016
Bottle. Light orange/deep yellow slightly cloudy pour with a thin off white head. Aroma of passion fruit, piney hops, soap, and light malt. Thin to medium body, very drinkable which can be somewhat dangerous given the ABV. Nice snappy finish.

jgb9348 (5558) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - MAR 31, 2016
Rich light copper coloured body with a thinnish tan head, about a centimetre tall. Aroma of pure new world hops with some passionfruit, orange zest, citrus, perfume and a bunch of light malt noticeable as well - fairly balanced. Medium-bodied; Strong assertive hops up front but not terribly bitter, but still packing the tropical fruit flavour, with some noticeable malt and earth showing as well near the end. Aftertaste shows some bitterness from the hops, but also a lot of perfume and some grass as well. Overall, a pretty well-balanced IPA, but nothing exceptional or really worth searching out - this was fine, but I was expecting a better West Coast IPA from this brewery. I sampled this 65 cL Green Flash-styled tall bottle purchased from Costco in Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia on 17-January-2016 for US$7,69 sampled at home in Washington after just returning from Europe a few minutes earlier on 27-March-2016. Best By Date on Bottle: 21-March-2016

evergreen0199 (2903) - Northwood, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 29, 2016
Bottle hauled back from California by Colin, many thanks to him for that. A hazy golden/orange coloured pour with a medium white head on top. Hoppy, dank, citrus, grapefruit on the nose. Taste is much the same hoppy, dank, slightly malty, citrus, grapefruit and a little rye. Quite bitter but in a good way. A quality IPA from California.
