Bottle from local grocery. Good aroma. Well balanced hop flavor. Very impressed. Never had ballast point before, but will look out for their beers again. Very good.

Light orange, a little hazy, and a little more than a finger of white head. Awesome sweet fruit aroma of peach, apricot, pineapple, mango, orange. Taste has a nice shot of bitterness on the tongue and then the fruity hops take over. Itís near perfect on the palate, light on the malt and hop forward. Great IPA!

Clear copper colour with foamy big head on top and its lasts relatively long time. Leaves beautiful lacing. Aroma has grapefruits, citrus, pines and some caramel sweetness. A typical West Coast here. Taste has quite much caramel malts, pines, grapefruits and some other sweeter fruits. Body is surprisingly full and carbonation is medium-to-light. Slightly sweeter IPA, but definitely an excellent beer in the West Coast style.

Very tasty IPA. Not as fruity as advertised at the establishment I tasted it in. Excellent hop character.

Heard rave reviews about this and had to give it a go. Clear, golden pour with a nice, sticky head. Nose is packed with citrus and pine notes. The flavor keeps up where the nose left off, lots of citrus and dry, earthy hops permeating throughout. Canít say Iím disappointed from what I have heard about this brew, it is solid through and through.

Really amazing IPA. Tons of piney citrus on the nose, followed by a crisp taste featuring the same flavors. Nice light copper color with a hearty lasting head. Super beer

Pours a clear caramel with a light foamy head. Strong aroma of grains and a hops. Very light and dry, with distinct aftertaste of grains and hops that is not to bitter. More drinkable than other IPA,s of its kind with a brighter crisp taste instead of a harsh earthiness. It almost has a fruity taste as you keep drinking, a menagerie of flavors but none of them fading to a flat aftertaste, it doesnít leave much of a bitterness in your palate like "other" IPA,s. Its damn good and drinkable.

On tap at Henry‚Äôs. FINALLY getting to try this. Pours a clear gold with a white cap settling to a thin blanket. Aroma of salt, pine, citrus rind, toffee. Taste is sweet and bitter. Creamy, long dry finish.On tap at Henryís.

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 itís not really that bitter for an IPA. I would have liked a little more prominent malt profile to balance it out a bit. Still, itís a refreshing, drinkable beer that is certainly worth your time.

Bottle @ Kittyís, Helsinki, 12/03/14. Pours orange with a small, white head. Aroma is grapefruit, grapefruit peel, some exotics. Taste is grapefruit, pine, conifer. Mostly grapefruit. Some pineapple, decent caramel. Fairly light with some carbonation. An alright American IPA, but a disappointment after all the heaps of adoration. Big Eye was better.
