From a can. Pours a light amber-orange and makes a nice white head. Smells of toffee and light caramel. Tastes of grapefruit, citrus, and hops. Reminds me of Sierra Nevada Pale Ale.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours clear golden with clean billowing head. It dissipates gradually. Fairly thick lacing.
Burgeoning juicy aroma. Exactly how I need my IPA’s. Fresh apricot, grapefruit, with a hint of lemon and floral pangs. A little dash of pine emerges as it warms. Beautiful.
Taste is more apricot, a touch of citrus and some soft caramel malt. Grapefruit-rind bitterness creeps forward and punctuates the moreish medium-bitter finish.
My only small qualm is the palate. It feels slightly diluted. Perhaps carbonation needs better integration. My preference is for more creamy IPA’s but the filp-side is this mouth-feel suits a more refreshing feel.
Supreme drinkability nevertheless. A quality, juicy IPA. Really enjoyed it.

Appearance: clear golden orange color, frothy white head. Aroma: very tropical fruity, orange maybe a little grapefruit. Taste: floral up front leading into medium sweet fresh citrus, finishing with mild hop bitterness. Mouthfeel: thin to medium creamy body. Overall: one of the most citrusy fruity hopped beers I've had. Very pleasurable.

Bottle courtesy of my father-in-law. Thanks Nuriel! The pour is a bright murky orange with some gold and amber colors dancing around. There is a big fluffy pure white head that leaves very elegant lacing on the glass. The nose is super high pitched with lots of C-hops and their citrus zest aromas. The flavors are intensely bitter with lots of citrus vest, grapefruit and fresh pine needles. The malts are so light and easy on the palate that the hops build a deep flavor base that only intensifies as I keep drinking. The balance is out of whack, but in a way I love. You can tell there were some sugars hanging around once upon a time, but they’ve all left town and the floral bitters are running a one horse town. I love this beer.

Drack denna öl för kall första gången och var inte alls imponerad. Nu drack jag den något varmare och fick en smakupplevelse i gengäld. Härlig doft, kompakta balanserade smaker och en påtaglig beska som sitter kvar länge. Mkt bra öl kort sagt.

22oz Bottle: Pours a clear bright orange with a thin white head. Big aromas of citrus! Hops dominate the taste with pine and orange coming through the best. It’s such an in your face experience that also delivers bits of tropical fruit. The body seemed medium to lighter but it could be the carbonation. This has become one of my favorites IPAs. Too bad we won’t see it for a while.

22 oz bottle pours the clear gold with a one finger head that leaves a lot of lacing and fades to a persistent thin foam. Nose clearing aromas of grapefruit, lemon, and hop resin. A powerful amount of bitters to the taste, but surprisingly light on the tongue for the huge flavors: more citrus, a bit of mountain cedar, fine notes of clean malts way underneath. Packs as much flavor as many Imperial or double IPAs. Wow!

This ale is a murky light copper color with a faint touch of carbonation. The nose of this beer is complex with notes of farmers market peach, passion fruit, citrus, and apricot jelly. On mouth this is a smoothly balanced IPA with a medium body, plenty of hops, and the slightest green hop flavor. The finish is chewy and of medium length.
