Pours dark gold and foggy with a big tenacious off white head. Smells like pine and citrus...Delightful! Taste is big hops with some lemon and pine again. What a nice IPA!

12 oz bottle. Batch #7795. Pours a light gold with a half-finger off-white head. Aroma is of grapefruit, hops and pine. Taste is sweet with a carbonated bitter pine grapefruit finish. Light and smooth. Very nice.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Large head. Aroma is rich with spice and hops, but you can tell it is also just slightly thin/watery. A little too light for my taste in the finish, just a little too much water, a touch too long of a finish, especially with this much hop bitter at the end. I just think if it has that much in the way of hops, the finish should be a little quicker/dryer. Overall a good beer, but I was just a little disappointed in the aroma/finish department.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Brown 12oz. bottle into a pint glass.
A dull and hazy amber beer with an off-white head that sticks around.
A great hop and orange rind on the nose. The hops dominate and leave little room for the faint bread malt lurking. Bell’s nailed the style with this one.
Citrus and hops again. Slight malts towards the finish. Hop oils remain through the finish and into the aftertaste. This is a bitter one but inline with the style.
Medium body and carbonation, this one goes down fine.
It’s loaded with hops and bitter. A thirst quencher and probably a good one. Good for several rounds but not all night.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Fruity aroma with a golden pour. Taste has strong hints of american malts and is distinctly centennial. Hoppy mouthfeel that doesn’t berate the palate, very sweet citrus-floral flavor.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours golden amber, decent head... solid lacing. Ok hop presence with, citrus notes and a piney bite. Little if any malt backbone. I love bells and love IPAs, but am confused with the unmitigated lovefest with this brew. A solid american IPA for sure.... but not on par with the CCB Jai Lais and Alesmiths of the world.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
The beer was lightly chilled and served in a pint glass.
Ar- The aroma of the beer is a lightly sweetened floral citrus and pine combination.
Ap- The body of the beer is slightly hazy with a honey coloration. The beers head is a thick biege and withstands the mustache test. Thick ropey lacing mark this beers rapid departure from my glass.
T- A nearly perfect deliverery of caramel sweetened citrus and citrus zest with a very light pine prescence. Dam near perfectly balanced.
P The body of the beer is light with nice complementary carbonation.
O- This beer is a pleasure to drink. I wonder why it has been so long since I last drank a pint of this beer.

Ok, this is just plain a great beer. Great IPA. I love the easy drinking, hop nature. The color was a copper. The nose and taste were a wonderful floral. Very drinkable. I can drink several. The finish was crisp. Again, great.

Un classique que je me devais de boire, j’ai bien apprécier le gout de grain mais j’ai l’impression que si elle était un peu plus fraiche un gout floral de houblon aurait été plus présent
