Clear pale orange colour, medium Carbonation, tight fluffy white head. Aroma has Mango, citrus, apricot jam, most of tropical fruit you can get. Soft mouth feel. Mild bitterness but the sweetness is balanced. Taste follows nose. Could session this quite happily. Superb!

UPDATED: SEP 14, 2013 Has a faint aroma that is pretty good. A very crisp refreshing beer. Pretty citrusy with a hint of lemon. Fantastic beer.

Pours out a clear orangeish gold with lots of head. Taste is creamy and hoppy. Lots of spicy hops. Great IPA with, some sweetness and lots of pine. Had last year, best IPA.

Had this at Happy Hour at Smoky Oak in Chas. Was almost the end of the cask-conditioned ale- poured very flat with no head. Bit hard to get past the appearance of it - doesn’t make one salivate like the traditional bubbles and foam topping one is used to. Flatness led to limited aroma and low score for appearance/ palate. Made up for it some with taste- very fruity, refreshing. Definitely unique. Would pair well with spicy food. 70 IBU’s. Definitely hoppy without being dry or bitter. Worth another taste- maybe tomorrow :)

Damn good IPA. Reminds me of the Smutty Nose IPA, which I absolutely loved when I lived in New Hampshire. Strong hops, citrus, floral and pine aromas and flavors, which equals a fabulous brew.

Pours golden. Aroma is citrus hops. Taste is citrus hops and good amount of bitterness. Palate is a bit fizzy, but smooth finish that leaves bitterness on the tongue. Easy drinking IPA that would be great on a hot day.

Pours into glass a hazy amber/orange, with minimal white head that fizzes away within a minute. Almost no lacing.
Aromas of grapefruit, pineapple, citrus, hops. Very pleasant.
Really pleasant, heavenly mouthfull of citrus hops, grapefruits, pineapple all swirling on the tongue complimenting each other. With a medium body, this is good stuff.
Fantastic. A great example of the great West Coast IPA. Look forward to more.

Pours light orange with a huge hop nose. A dry spicy hop flavor but well balanced. An excellent IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
