Dank hops and a whole lotta citrus. Orange, grapefruit, pineapple. A classic West Coast (San Diego) style IPA to me. Less pine and more citrus than some of its brethren.

BillKismet (3839) - Seattle, Washington, USA - AUG 4, 2016
Hazy sunrise color with an airy head of white foam. The nose is flush with co-humlone and some high octane notes of grapefruit and pineapple sprinkled in. Juicy hop body, overflowing with fruit, most notably, pineapple, and a tone of pine juice. Mild bitter finish.

raphael (1165) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUL 20, 2016
Some angle of the citrus hops focused on the alcohol flavor, lemon & grapefruit. Lemony aroma with a little vinegar & honey. started hazy but cleared up, pleasant yellow, light on the palate, which is good. light finish.

Bottle. Poured a yellow-orange haze with lots of head. Had a big floral and grass nose with hops and bitter following in the end. Sweet and sticky on the mouth.

erickok (5396) - Leuven, BELGIUM - JUL 18, 2016
Very floral hops, modern and a touch English in appeal (modern craft English). Very clear and so the hops shine through sharply. It’s not very refined or unique or with much complexity perhaps, but decent enough, certainly don’t mind drinking this. (33cl bottle from Saveur Bière)
