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.

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.

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

umich03jm (1829) - Flat Rock, Michigan, USA - OCT 29, 2013
Can from trade with crajun. Pours a hazy amber color with a small foamy head that lingers nicely. Aroma is nice and musty. Pine needles, flowers, citrus, light caramel malt. Great taste too. Light sweetness and moderate bitterness. Nice hop complexity with a malty backbone. Medium body. Really good, I slammed this one quick.

JBPortland (658) - Portland, Maine, USA - OCT 12, 2013
12oz can (9/16 batch) into glass, pours semi-clear dark orange with 1 finger head. Nose is dank, musty, grassy citrus. Mouthfeel is carbonated, smooth, bit of a bite, malty. Taste is crisp, grassy malt, evergreen, lemon, bitter, grains. Finish is biscuity, lemongrass. Pretty well done. Sessionable. Good.

Rune (7775) - Tromsø, NORWAY - OCT 1, 2013
Gravicask, at the American Bar, GBBF 2013, day 3. Orange coloured body, slightly hazy. Citrus hoppy nose. Fine blended flavours of fruity hops, sappy berries and caramel malts followed by a rather solid bitter ending. Well-made IPA, likable (London Olympia 15. 08.2013)

16 oz. draft. Golden amber hazy pour, good lacing. Smell is a hop smack with grapefruit and orange detectable. Taste is hop forward, lots of pine and bitterness and a touch of grapefruit. Very enjoyable IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Good ipa with lots of citrus elements without a ton of bitterness. Easy to drink with very little bitterness.

Beese (1526) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 16, 2013
Cask at Great British Beer Festival 2013. Poured an amber/ yellow colour with a halo of rocky, white head. Aroma of citrus, pine and sherbet. Orange peal and tropical fruit flavours which turn to rounded, increasing bitter hop resin notes with a biscuity malt backbone.
