Terminus (3349) - Las Cruces, New Mexico, USA - JUN 9, 2015
Tap from Growler from brewpub however, i have had this beer before in the past 2 years Pours bright deep orange hue with a very small soapy white head. Nose is typical moden IPA however its not dank, just fresh C hops all the way. Pretty standard here. Flavors follow suit-lots of c hops, cheese, lite tropical, flowers. Intense citrus zest here. This is what Stone was shooting for on their Delicious IPA hwoever, that failed and this did very well. Pretty straight forward IPA and thats not a bad thing.

Sample. The one beer they always try to have on. Golden amber color with white head. Grapefruit and some pine aroma. Big, big flavor that makes it easy to drink.

Tmoney99 (11910) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 19, 2015
Tap. Poured clear copper color with an average frothy off-white head that lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy complex citrus hop aroma. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Moderate to heavy citrus bittersweet flavor with a moderate to heavy bittersweet finish of medium to long duration. This a solid brew.

arminjewell (8622) - East Lansing, Michigan, 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 (2765) - 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.

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.
