A heavily-hopped, West Coast-style IPA. Bold, complex flavors with a solid malt backbone and assertive hop profile, along with cold conditioning give this beer its crisp, clean finish.

Jesterdeal (1789) - Marlton, New Jersey, USA - JAN 24, 2014
Can thrown in by Seth on an awesome trade. Aroma is muted apricot and papaya with some passionfruit and bitter grass notes as well. Pours amber with a nice frothy head. Taste follows suit. Papaya and grass stand out but not in a sweet way. Nice even bitterness. An easy sippin’ and unassuming IPA. Nice.

seth_lfod (323) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - JAN 18, 2014
Consumed from the can. Smell is very citrus forward, pine and hop resin. Taste follows with added malty sweetness. Good beer, just a little too sweet for me.

canary dog (655) - Rutland, Vermont, USA - JAN 13, 2014
Piney and resinous hops dominate in the immediate nose and taste notes. Finish is quick, clean, and draft-like. Easy to drink. I thought this beer really hid its 6.9% pretty well.

Mep3222 (395) - East Greenbush, New York, USA - JAN 11, 2014
Malty floral hop aroma. Maybe a bit if stinky feet in there but not much. Full flavored and pretty well balanced. Prefer a bit of a different hop profile but still a pretty well made ipa. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

halfonit (1151) - Fall River, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 26, 2013
On tap at battleship. Poured an amber/ yellow color with a thick white head. Aroma of citrus, pine and grass. Orange peal and tropical fruit flavors which turn to rounded, increasing bitter hop and resin notes with a biscuity malt backbone. This is a very good IPA on tap right now.

bytemesis (2931) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - NOV 22, 2013
Canned on 08/19 - thanks JBPortland! Pours hazy butterscotch amber with a medium creamy beige head and nice lacing. Aroma is pretty standard pine and caramel. Flavor is about the same, medium sweet and light bitter. Medium body, creamy mouthfeel. Not too bad despite having a bit of age on it.

Tap @Bukowski, Boston
Amber-orange color, good creamy off-white head. Piney-hoppy aroma. Medium-bodied. Fruity, slightly herbal, piney flavor. Ok average IPA.

BreWedge (295) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 9, 2013
12 fl oz can via S.B. Pours a mildly hazy dark gold with a huge White Sea foam-like head. Aroma is pine-resin dominant. Taste is reflective of aromas, this is a resin hop-bomb but hides the 6.9% abv well. Assertive carbonation, long astringent finish. Not complex but great when you're looking for a hoppy punch in the face. ---Rated via Beer Buddy
