GSH1976 (213) - Delaware, USA - MAY 13, 2013
Pours a clear golden with minimal head. Aroma is pine and citrus but not nearly as bold as the west coast IPAs. Taste is a weak citrus and a little grassy with more of a malt presence than is usual for the style. Finish is dry and slightly bitter. I have had so many of these over the years and never understood the high ratings so I decided to try it once again and I still feel the same way. It is very easy to drink but there are so many better IPAs out there.

Wonderful citrus and hop aroma. Definite pine smell. Cloudy and foamy appearance. Excellent ipa flavor.

dhatton (46) - Mendham, New Jersey, USA - DEC 26, 2014
Golden orange body with thin layer of foam. Aroma is of fresh florals and citrus. More citrus flavor; lemon and faint grapefruit notes. Subtle tastes of pine throughout. Touch of nutty maltiness. Relatively creamy finish, although, solid carbonation makes this very crisp. Drinkable IPA with good depth.

Extremely smooth ipa. Perfect amount of carbonation and good taste of hops. The 60 minutes makes for a good taste.

ElCapitan22 (139) - Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 19, 2014
Pours a nice clear gold color with nice lacing and head retention. Has a mild lemony, piney aroma and tastes the same with a subtle bitter finish. This is a good beer to which all IPA’s should strive to be.

bookman10 (663) - Osseo, Minnesota, USA - DEC 15, 2014
Very grassy in both aroma and flavor. Not much by way of hop flavor in this one. Little by way of head, seems a bit watery in the body as well. Kind of lackluster, actually.

bennetporter (59) - East Falmouth, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 12, 2014
A 1 oz pour from a taster’s table. Poured a nice amber with off-white head, floral nose. Good hoppy flavor, but with a nice malty aspect as well. Kind of thin and off-balance mouthfeel to me though.

varanid99 (564) - AUSTRALIA - DEC 11, 2014
Cloudy orange pour with a decent white head. Caramel, orange and resin aromas. Citrus and caramel flavours, fairly mild bitterness and dry finish

SuperTiti33 (621) - Aylmer, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 6, 2014
Blonde dorée. Bien amère. Houblonné à souhait. Fruité et florale. Bien équilibré. Finale sèche. Bonne bière de soif pour moi.
