COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This West Coast IPA is like that sweet little Nordic trail off the main trail of Meissner - it takes the high road. Using Pilsner base malt, it is light on malt but not hops. With a hop bill consisting of Amarillo, Centennial, Northern Brewer, and experimental hop X, we packed in the pine along with the citrus notes we love.

FROTHINGSLOSH (6542) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 19, 2016
UPDATED: JUL 22, 2016 Sampled on draft at the Rivertowne Pub this beer poured a hazy bright yellow color with a large fluffy white head that lingered and left good lacing. The aroma was tart, tangy, sweet and fruity and reminded me of gummi bears. The flavor was tart, tangy, a touch medicinal and fruity and again had a gummi bear element. Long finish and a bit astringent. Medium body. Odd.

Thechasm442 (686) - Manhattan, Illinois, USA - JUL 17, 2016
Bottle poured to pint glass. Mostly clear golden yellow with a slight haze. Small off white head and a little lacing. Aroma is big pine resin, some citrus, and bread. Taste is pine, sour citrus, and more pine. Finish is very dry and full of pine resin. Decent IPA.

Derek881 (1240) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUL 15, 2016
Poured from the bottle into a pint glass to drink. The beer had a hazy copper-amber color with a good sized foamy white head with very good retention, cling, and lacing. Its aroma featured strong pine hops notes, along with some straw and citrus hops and a bit of straw and grain. Its taste was fairly bitter with line, citrus, and grainy notes along with a very mild sour presence. It has a fairly bubbly and lively mouthfeel with a dry body and average carbonation.

Bottle. Pours a hazy yellow gold with medium white head that lasts. The aroma is floral and citrus. Thick, strong bitterness, grapefruit, pine, good.

notalush (5707) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUL 9, 2016
Bottle - turbid gold - thick white lace - nose is pine and musky citrus fruit, melon - soft texture, medium-full body - clean, lightly sweet malts allow the hops to shine - fairly bitter and woody, and the citric notes are little pithy and cling to the tongue a bit too much, but overall enjoyable.

Drv11 (4) - - JUL 6, 2016 does not count
Low lighting conditions but appears very light, creamy white head which persists nicely. Fruity pineapple aroma, quite mild. Mid bitterness, low body. Not much in malts but quite refreshing.

Oscbert (1231) - Sacramento, California, USA - JUL 4, 2016
Fruity citrusy aroma with earthy notes, pine. Pours a hazy golden color with lasting frothy white head. Earthy piney hop flavor with citrus. Bready malt. Well balanced. Medium bodied with medium co2, lingering earthy bitter finish. Well balanced IPA. Enjoyable hop character. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

bigcat03 (259) - Columbus, Nebraska, USA - JUL 3, 2016
UPDATED: JUL 3, 2016 Bottle poured into a tulip glass. Dark gold color with a frothy white head. Pine, floral hops, spices, pepper, and a hint of malt in the aroma. Mostly pine hops to the taste fading to floral hops and a fairly bitter aftertaste. Good medium body and carbonation with a somewhat bubbly mouthfeel. Good, but just a bit too bitter for my liking.

Nate (4114) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 29, 2016
On tap at Benjamin’s (5/10/16). Light spicy hops, pine resin and a little funk. Mild grain sweetness. Hazy pale amber with white lacing head. Medium body with medium-high carbonation. Moderate sweet start, nice hop flavor throughout with pine and tropical fruit. A little diacetyl, with hoppy bitter after.
