Hazy golden pour with an amazing bouquet of hops. Citrus and caramel dominate. Overall the taste is very well balanced with a lot of bitter hops and malt sweetness to complement. Finishes astringent and makes for an amazing beer

Franckg (1120) - Trois-Rivières, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 27, 2016
Bouteille sans date. Robe dorée trouble sans col de mousse. Arômes de fruits tropicaux et d’agrumes (tangerine, mangue, clémentine, pamplemousse, ananas), légers houblons resineux, zeste de pamplemousse. En bouche, houblons orientés vers les agrumes, touche tropicale rapidement rattrapée par une amertume résineuse, pointes de grains maltés. Finale aux saveurs d’orange, mangue et pamplemousse avec son zeste. Texture huileuse et corps mince à moyen. Bonne ipa qui ne révolutionne pas le genre mais dans le très buvable.

bulldogops (2040) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 20, 2016
Rating #1917 - 2015.09.24 #CraftTakesSeattle Beer 16 - Bottleshare. Pours a rich golden, small white head, minimal lacing. Aroma is grapefruity, pine, lemon rind, toffee, light pithy orange. On the palate, similar citrus and pine zest, mild resin, mild pastry dough malt. Medium bodied and extraordinarily balanced. Bitterness is solid, citrusy, refreshing, with a great bite in the finish. Phenomenal.

Swaroga (2071) - Gdańsk, POLAND - AUG 20, 2016
33cl bottle. I always find a 4/5 for a well done simple IPA. And this is definitely a nice, well balanced and easy to drink one. Typical aroma of tropical fruits with an extra mango, pomelo and some strawberry in the back. Of course some little cheese cake and muffin like malt notes. Easy going, creamy texture with soft skinny milk like mouth feel. Here also so much balance, Sweet with bitter are equally strong but more on the bitter/dry side which is ...well...balanced. Good stuff.

TheKernOwl (182) - West Sussex, ENGLAND - AUG 8, 2016
Like a proper racer: beautiful balance + more power under bonnet than in its exhaust fumes. Nice hops (papaya, pineapple, faint mango), pine and touch of orange-y caramel. Even better body (orange-y caramel) and med-to-long finish featuring bitter hops and bready malt.

On tap at Sweeney’s in St Paul. Very solid IPA. Drinkable and leaves the potential for a second if the night allows
