COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Hop heads unite! This West Coast style IPA feeds the hops fiends that clamor for the greenery. Mango, melon and fresh cut pine fills the air, and you are taken to your refuge! Chinook, Simcoe, Cascade, and Columbus are all to blame for your longing of our take on the IPA. Let this be your refuge of taste!

Crowler (1 L) shared at tasting. From kbudd19, huge thanks! About 5 weeks old when opened. Clear orangey-amber with small white head leaving little lacing. Aroma is a bit bland but there’s the usual suspects with pine, citrusy notes, mild malt spiciness/pepperiness, hints of caramel and honeyed notes. Taste is much better featuring a pretty nice honeyed cereals backbone backed in a delicate way by grass, resin, mild citrusy notes, fresh bread and moderate bitterness. Medium body. Moderate carbonation. Slightly oily mouthfeel. Honeyed finish. The aromatics hops probably have faded but the rich honeyed malts delivers a rich taste and a pretty nice mouthfeel making the beer super easy drinking. The alcohol is well hidden. Tasty.

Pours a clear golden with a small white head that leaves spotty lacing. Nose is of fruity, piny and peppery hops. Taste is of light perfume or maybe soap is a more appropriate word, moderately sweet and lightly sugary. Body and carbonation are medium and mouthfeel is oily or maybe syrupy even. A good IPA but that doesn’t say much nowadays.

Franckg (1022) - Trois-Rivières, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 5, 2016
Canette datée du 31/03/2016, bue après 5 semaines. Robe ambrée claire avec un col de mousse très rocailleux. Apparence liquoreuse. Arômes subtils de pain frais, malt caramelisé, pêche, melon-miel, orange. Fond de houblons tropicaux. Le nez manque de tonus. En bouche, houblons tropicaux mélangés à un malt épais et caramélisé, alcool un peu envahissant qui assèche le palais. Finale intéressante où houblons tropicaux et résine de pin se côtoient. Texture très huileuse et corps moyen. Bonne bière de soif.

theisti (3806) - Kansas, USA - JAN 18, 2016
Nonic pint type draft at the brewpub in Gilbert, Arizona. The pour is a slight haze golden orange with a foamy white head. The aroma is fruity bright citrus hop, some grass and a nice background of biscuit malt. The taste is the bright fruit citrus hops, adds a bit of pine and finishes dry with the grass. The biscuit malt is present, and provides a great backbone to the beer. The palate is medium bodied with active carbonation and the dry clean finish. Nice one.

Taster pour at the brewpub. Amber with a slight white head. Nose is citrus and pine hops. Really nice taste, malty but with a large dose of pine and citrus with very low bitterness.
