COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A straightforward malt body supports the distinctive bouquet of Columbus and Falconers Flight hops that impart citrus, grapefruit and pine notes characteristic of the West Coast style. F5 is a belligerent hop reckoning.

Tasted from a pint can. It poured an orangish murky amber with a thin off white head and fairly solid lacing. Sweet orange hopped aroma with a well hopped citrus taste and a hint of apricot. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle; poured a clear dull orange with an off white head. Aroma of orange and citrus, sugar and earth. Very earthy flavor, some sugar, and earth and cardboard.

Pint on tap. Clear beer, bright yellow, good lacing, small persistent head. Actually a light, simple aroma. Taste is very good, medium mouthfeel, nice medium bitter aftertaste. All the flavors you want. Recommended.

Great piney, floral and citrus aroma that is very powerful as soon as the can is opened. Appearance is very pale. Lighter than a lot of IPA’s. Pretty looking beer! Very hop forward from the beginning with a complex hop flavor consisting of citrus and spruce. Not a strong malt build, which I like in an IPA, but a small amount of light sweetness. Medium to high bitterness. Light to medium body. Lots of resin in the texture. Lively carbonation and finishes with a long lasting hop bitterness and flavor, but very clean. Great beer! My go-to beer to start most nights at the bar.

This is not for the hop haters out there. Strong, pine aroma and taste. Very stout palate that sticks with you. Despite it's hoppy nature and high alcohol content, a very smooth and easy to drink beer.

On draft. Aroma of pine, citrus and honey. Flavors of orange, peach, guava with a faintly chocolate malt presence. Sophisticated and layered.

Can given to me from some fine folks passing through Bell’s Eccentric Cafe from Montana/Oklahoma. Medium copper pour with small amount of effervescent bubbles rising to a quarter inch of white head. Scent is light, full of toffee, grain, florals. Soft carbonation, pillowy mouthfeel, tacky finish that leaves teeth dry. Taste is predominantly pine mixed well with floral and citrus zest, really soft and subtle, milky sour with toffee as well, grain is indistinct in flavor but very apparent in mouthfeel. Nice IPA with some regional uniqueness.

16 ounce can thanks to Angelo. Super balanced malt build. Nicely hopped with just the right citrus flavors coming through. Really well done.

nuplastikk (4702) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 16, 2014
16oz can. Slightly hazy orange body, steady off-white head. Oily, resinous hop aroma..some pink grapefruit..mostly pine. A pretty decent IPA. The hops aren’t that exciting, tastes like a run of the mill IPA from ten years back. Not one I’d go back for more of. Surprised this hit 100 IBUs. Nothing super off, but mediocre and not that desirable either.

Draft at TapWerks. Pours a clear orange color with a thin head. Thick, hoppy aroma with some citrus notes. Dry, hoppy taste with some tart notes. Really good IPA.
