3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draft into pint glass at Bittercreek Alehouse in Boise , Idaho on Nov. 2, 2012 for $6. Honey, pale, golden with light khaki gray head. Decent retention all-around.
Smelled floral notes, honey, bread, corn and light lemon grass. Reminded me of a pilsner more than an IPA.
Tasted similar to the smell, but a tad more fruity. Got floral notes, honey, banana, cloves, bread, skunky, corn and light lemon citrus. Still heavy on the pilsner notes.
Light body. Thin texture. Above average carbonation. Bitter finish.
Pretty disappointed. I was expecting something totally different. This beer just didn’t impress me.

Best by 27DEC12
Pours golden on pilsner straw with a solid sheet of fine whites. Smells fruity with some resin, grass and green grape. Flavor is grainy and nearly like a pilsner with a dry stony bitterness and only a bit of resin character. Medium bodied with soft carbonation and a slick finish. This would be a great beer if marketed as a bohemian pilsner, but IPA, not a chance.

Draft. Golden pour with white head. Aroma is light crisp hop and into of malt. Flavor is comparable to prima pils or sunshine pils, nice light but not overbearing.

Draft at Capone’s. Pours turbid canary gold with 2-finger white head. Nose is fresh wet hops, pale malt, citrus. Tastes resiny hoppy, with a lot of pineapple and grapefruit flavor, an overall dryness, and some finishing white peppery spice notes. Very good.

Tap. Pours clear gold with a small white head. I found something in the aroma strange. Perhaps a bit grassy ? Finishes hoppy and malty.

On tap at St Augustine’s on The Drive in Vancouver. A very pale, crisp and refreshing IPA. Not particularly seasonal for late October, but a damn nice easy-drinking IPA anyhow. 3.5

Tap. Clear gold. Little aroma with maybe a little sweetness. Great lacing. Some initial hoppiness, then a bit of a clean malty sweetness. Very crisp. Well done.

I really like this beer! Nice and light golden hue, but packs a bit, fruity aroma punch. Nice and hoppy, good amount of bitters, just enough to boost the powerful tropical punch, pine, and pineapple aroma. There is so much of this fruity/flower aroma that it makes the beer sweet. This is a complex and great tasting IPA that I would drink over and over.

Note: The 2013 vintage is Amarillo hops not Cascade. Aroma is tropical and grapefruit. Pale gold in color, lighter than similar IPAs. Overall, great beer

Nice yellow amber with a little cloudiness. Big white foam. Aroma is vegetal and floral hops. Nice balanced taste. Good are very nice but there’s still some malt. Great beer.
