Extensively hopped and dryhopped with a big roster of hops – Simcoe, Centennial, Cascade, Ahtanum, Chinook, and Amarillo – it’s big, bright, and floral, with just enough malt to balance. This American-style I.P.A. stands head and shoulders above its hoppy brethren, blending pale and honey malts to balance the palate without interfering in your herbal reverie, and creating a new American classic.

Sammy (11247) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 31, 2016
Can from the source. Crushable IPA, a bit lighter mouthfeel and hop delivery but certainly the style. This beer was on tap everywhere, where is the meat?

ClarkVV (5859) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - JUL 27, 2016
Draught and cans since debut, most recently at Anchovies, Winter 2015.
Moderate amount of white head tops a bright, light-amber body with soft auburn-bronze hues and good clarity. Retention is moderately-strong.
Very fruity in the nose; cherry, strawberry, apple, lemon and with a touch of stronger, more austere pine, but not to the point of it being resinous. Light pepper is noted, along with a lightly sweet honey-like maltiness and touches of biscuit. No alcohol or flaw and the simcoe and amarillo definitely add more to it so that it’s not just another C-hop bomb.
Lightly to moderately malty with strong attenuation, but still a fair amount of malt sugar remaining, being needed to balance all of these high alpha hops. Black pepper, cherry, melon, orange and ruby red grapefruit all combine nicely with the base malts to produce a fairly juicy-sweet fruitiness. Spicy, lightly resinous pine lingers on the edges and there’s certainly plenty of bitterness to go around. Moderate carbonation helps disperse some of the acidity, however and it ends crisp enough, though with some light specialty grain character butting in. No alcohol or flaw. A good rendition of a West Coast IPA but with more malt character than those usually have.

Draught @ Albion. Slightly cloudy golden color with small creamy white head, faint hops aroma, medium carbonation, medium bitter hoppy taste with some malt flavor, thin body, longish hoppy finish. Nice, not a bitter IPA.

polo_marco (322) - milton, Vermont, USA - JUN 7, 2016
Smells of floral scent with straight hop smell. Juicey tangerine smell at the end. Lovely cloudy yellow gold color with short white head that does not last some lacing. Really Juicey hop flavor while the malts balance it out nicely for a dry smooth finish. Medium body with light crisp carbonation. The flavor blew my mind it was like I was getting more and more flavor on each sip. Very nice brew.

Poured from a 12 OZ can into a pint glass. The appearance is a semi-clear golden yellow with a huge white head. The aroma is full of hops and flowers. The taste is hop driven. A really good beer.
