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.

From the can poured in to tulip. Pours hazy copper color with orangish white head and good lacing. Good pine, grass hop aromas. Initial taste has solid malt moving quickly to hoppy resin pine needles and a bit of citrus and clean slightly bitter finish.

DiarmaidBHK (4232) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 16, 2016
Draft at Bull Feeneys. Pours dark gold with a thin white head. Leaves trace lacing in the glass. Not a lot on the nose. Has some grapefruit elements on the tongue. Finished clean. Solid example of a west coast IPA except for the lack of pungency in the nose. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dogbrick (11607) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - SEP 27, 2016
This brew is a clear dark copper color with a medium off-white head that diminishes gradually to a film. Stringy lacing. Citrus, hops and malt in the nose. Medium body with flavors of grapefruit, hops and caramel malt. The finish is mildly bitter with a fruity hop aftertaste. Decent overall.

malrubius (2609) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - SEP 26, 2016
Can from Table and Vine. Bright clear copper with lasting head and lace. Pine spice and toffee aroma bready aroma. Sweet toffee peach lightly toasted nutz with fairly assertive herbal pine bitterness. Medium body slightly sticky. This would have been all the rage in 1998. Decent enough, but not decent enough for me to want another when I have a fridge full of really excellent IPAs.

Thanks to @RunningNoleFan down at Proof Production Facility. Clear, bright citrine. Good can. Candied, caramel, citrusy aroma. Sturdy, citric bittering, pithy, lightly sweet but mostly dry. Some woody tones. Medium body. Solid. Hermine aftermath. Power still on at Proof.

jgb9348 (5720) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JUL 29, 2016
Crisp, slightly hazy golden and lightly copper body with a thinnish, two centimetre tall off-white head. Aroma of fresh hops, pine, citrus, resin and dank hops all with a touch of sweetness noticeable in the nose. Light to Medium-bodied; Assertive fresh hop flavour with a lot of grass, hay, pine, grapefruit and very pungent citrus flavours, all with a well supportive malt backbone and some sweetness from apricot and peaches. Aftertaste is well-balanced with a great fresh hop flavour, but an equally present malt and sweetness that shows very well throughout. Overall, a very nice IPA with a great profile and amazing balance - surprising and delicious! Great to sample, given this is my first trip to Maine and I was able to find this at a 7-11! I sampled this twelve ounce can next door to my hotel at a 7-11 in Portland, Maine, available as a single can for US$2,29 sampled in my hotel room a few minutes later on 28-July-2016.

On draft. I had no expectations, but this still surprised me. The base beer is clean and neutral and allows the hop profile to dominate. The hops are mostly pine, although there was some resin and citrus too. Nothing crazy, just a very well done West Coast IPA.
