arminjewell (7824) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAR 30, 2015
Pour on tap at the brewpub, slightly hazy yellow-orange pour with white head, aroma brought notes of nice orange, bread, grass into some pine, touch of biscuit with a hint of floral hops. Taste was a mix of grass, pine, slight orange into a bit of floral notes, touch of biscuit, bready notes, finishing bitter.

Regular tap at the brewery. All around solid IPA. Very drinkable. Perfect amount of hops, with a sufficient malt backbone.
Earlier Rating: 4/19/2014 Total Score: 4.3
Totally disagree this is a West Coast IPA, which I tend to find unbalanced. Rather, here, the maltiness is beautifully palpable, complemented nicely by piney hops and ending in a satisfying bitterness.

umich03jm (2452) - Flat Rock, Michigan, USA - MAR 12, 2015
Tap at the source. Hazy golden amber pour with a small head that fades to a thin ring and leaves some nice lacing. Lovely citrus and pine hop aroma. Tastes mildly bitter and easy to drink. Light dankness, juicy citrus, and a nice pine balance. Not really complex but smooth and easy to drink.

Reynolds314 (2706) - Connecticut, USA - MAR 12, 2015
No problem with this IPA at all. pretty nice overall but ive moved on from this style of IPA but it does appeal to the masses as a nice flagship. Solid citrus and piney aromas with a sweet bready caramel maltiness to the nose. Taste is medium sweet with a bit of bitterness on the back end and a fruity hop quality.

Braudog (5962) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - MAR 1, 2015
Draft at the brewpub. Prototypical visuals ... golden amber, full head. Drinks with the requisite full-on character of of West Coast hops. I’d have gotten a growler if I’d planned ahead. (#5939, 2/28/2015)

snoworsummer (2919) - baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAR 1, 2015
Draft at the brewery. Pours hazy bright copper with a fizzy white head. Tastes like dry grapefruit, creamy caramel, dry toasted malt. Light body and low carbonation. Smells like toasted malt, grapefruit, caramel.

sonnycheeba (4078) - Federal Hill, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAR 1, 2015
Draft at brewery. Pours clear amber with creamy white head. Aroma is bready malts, some wet bread funk, floral notes, and some faint citrus. Flavor is grassy and floral hop bitterness forward with a dry malt base and a citrus finish with faint spiciness. Medium body and carbonation.

Padron4KM (616) - Chandler, Arizona, USA - FEB 18, 2015
On tap at brewery. Clear copper, thin head, spotty lace. Mild hop aromas, grass, pine, tropical. Flavor is pine up front, citrus and caramel malt middle, pine on finish. Finish is rather short for a "West Coast IPA"

Marheb (2817) - San Diego, California, USA - FEB 2, 2015
(Bue en fût sur place); Une énorme présence d’agrumes sucrées, pêches et et poires. L’amertume est terreuse, la buvabilité monstrueuse.
