Ordered this beer from South Bay Drugs and Liquor. Thanks Joey!
This is probably my favorite IPA and I’ve only had it twice. It poured a nice thick off white head and it has a beautiful golden color. The smell is just exceptional, above and beyond any other IPA I have ever had. Smells floral, grassy, piney, grapefruit, pineapple, and mango. Just all sorts of things going on in the smell and this translates directly into the taste. It tastes nice and hoppy, similar to the smell, and it also has a nice malty sweetness then a lingering, pleasant bitterness at the end. The mouthfeel is pretty good and the drinkability is amazing. This is really the best IPA I have had to date and I will definitely try to get some more in the future. Highly recommended!

Bottle shared at Tkrjukoff’s CCB-day in Sätila. Pours almost clear yellow with a medium sized off-white head. Very fresh hoppy aroma. Hoppy, citrus and pine in the taste, very fresh. Medium bitter finish. Very nice.

This is a very smooth IPA. Not overpowering pine hops nor bitter. Mild hops after about 5 seconds with a slow fade. This is excellent.

Received in a trade from Jason! Been drinking so skipping to my overall, amazingly solid IPA, nothing gimmicky, just plain good. Want more.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Orange beer with a medium foamy white head that is actually pretty dense. Citrusy nose with grapefruit, orange, peach, and pear. Flavor has a bracing hop bite with some bright fruit notes reminiscent of the nose with the addition of some pine resin and pith, but overall it’s not really that bitter for an IPA. I would have liked a little more prominent malt profile to balance it out a bit. Still, it’s a refreshing, drinkable beer that is certainly worth your time.

UPDATED: JUN 4, 2013 On tap in a goblet. Aroma is very citrusy and hoppy. Pours a golden color with a thin white head. Taste hoppy up front with a lingering bite. Average carbonation with a sharp mouthfeel.

Best Ipa i’ve ever tasted. Clean, fresh and perfect. Nice foam retention, brilliant and a really strong hop aroma. Perfectly balanced.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft pour at Whip In. Pours clear amber with a white finger head. Sticky white lacing all down the glass. Smells of hops and a variety of sweet fruits ad citrus akin to a great IPA. Flavor is faintly fruity with a full hop and malt balance. Light and enjoyable IPA for any time of year.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
One of my favorite IPA’s, especially on tap. Dark amber/orange pour with a substantial white head. Tropical fruit and hop aroma. Same taste, extremely well balanced with well hidden alcohol.
