Pours a hazy orange , it has a definite smell of citrus with a slight floral hint. Great hoppy bitterness flavor with a hint of lemon zest, lots of citrus in this beer, hops are not overpowering though. One of the best IPA’s oiut there!

Lovely gold orange colour, heat foamy head carrying some of the colour with it. Cloudy but not really settled in the bottle ie: cloudy from start to finish - no settling. Musty aromas on the hooter. Caramel finish on taste and sting lingering bitterness - a bit like a marriage.

355 ml bottle into shaker. Full-on nose! Cheese, wood shavings, pineapple, lemon sherbet! Amazing! Looks cloudy orange with fluffy white head and many tiny bubbles. Laces well. Flat mouthfeel, oily texture. Finish is plastic, resin, grapefruit, dough. There’s a diminishing white wine grape note that becomes sweeter right at the end. I think 5 different hop varieties are playing tricks on me, great beer. Evolving taste is hard to pin down but I like it!

12 oz bottle via trade from notes. Pours a hazy golden color with a medium sized off white head. The aroma and flavor have floral hops, citrus, some earthy notes, pale, mildly toasted malts, toffee, ok but nothing really stands out.

Tap at the brewpub. Slightly hazy light gold pour with a clingy white head. Kind of a dull IPA, I’m sorry to say. No noticeable flaws, but nothing to get excited about. Slightly dry finish.

Bottle sample at a tasting at troubles’s place. Thanks kerenmk. Cloudy yellow. Aroma of kinda stale hops and a vegetal touch. Flavor has sweetish malt, a bit of marmalade, a bit of vegetables, stale citric hops, and a bitterish finish. Medium-bodied.
