COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

can. pours hazy bright golden with a small creamy beige-orange head showing some retention and lacing. spicy citrus, almost juicy mangoes, soft pine needles, doughy caramel - never overwhelming, hint of honeyed sweetness, tasty red fruitiness, pepper, herbal tea, hint of mint and coconut - pina colada-ish. moderately low carbonation, light to medium body - oily, assertive and almost balanced citrusy-piney-spicy finish. oddly unappreciated (or underappreciated) by zee community. i enjoyed it.

Bière limpide, bien cuivrée et couverte d’un épais col mousseux laissant au verre une dense dentelle. Au nez, des malts caramel et un intense houblonnage aux accents de conifères. Elle est bien amère, peu acide et pratiquement sans sucre résiduel. Elle est lisse, de corps léger/moyen, bien effervescente et se termine sur une amertume tranchante et des arômes bien assortis à celle-ci.

Can, I think from WillRunForBeer. Moderate hop nose, mostly grassy but not that tropical or citrus. Flavor is initially malty with moderate hop bitterness. Hop flavor is kind of flat and just grassy with some harshness in the finish, slightly astringent. just ok.

Can. Pours orange gold with a big white head. Aroma of dish soap, citrus. Has a pretty sweey, slightly caramel malt backbone with plenty of grapefruit and floral hops to balance.

Very clean, hoppy beer with a nice dry finish that is not too sweet. Nice floral and citrus notes throughout ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Drinking straight from 12oz can, so disregard aroma/appearance scores. This is my fourth or fifth can, spread out over several weeks of various tastings. This is a smooth IPA that delivers some nice bitter hop notes towards the end. There are some nice spice and pine notes hidden throughout the middle and late turns. Beginning is quite smooth and very drinkable. Very well played at 6.9% (the sneaky 7). ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Reviewed from notes. The appearance is slightly hazy amber/orange body with a slowly rising carbonation that is seen. There is a small white one centimeter head forms and lasts for about a minute. The lacing is foamy, spotty and ringy. The smell is balanced with hops, grapefruit, pine and malts The taste has a sweet malty character up front with a decent bitterness through the hops, grapefruit and pine in the background, slight caramel malt is tasted in the background as well. The palate it sits about a light to medium, comes across fairly sessionable with some harshness surrounding the mouth and tongue, no aftertaste, harsh finish. Overall, I like this for an AIPA, I’d come back to this.
