GTCruiser01 (105) - California, USA - FEB 22, 2012
Cloudy amber with a thick just off white head. clean piney herbal fresh hops smell. grapefruity, piney, citrusy refreshing hops flavors, almost lemony at times, not much malt balance, but it has a slight sweetness behind it thatís hard to identify, maybe a itís a hint of caramel. meduim bodied and easy drinking.

TET (1764) - FINLAND - DEC 29, 2014
A hazy, golden beer with a medium and blond head. The nose has lots of fructose and tropical fruits, peaches, pineapples and some grapefruits. Taste has tropical fruits, some peaches. After the fruity beginning the medium bitterness tastes and itís slightly piney. Medium bodied, medium carbonation, smooth enough. Good, easy to enjoy and tropical beer but as five months old the age has already done some damage.

Bottle @ Cutter's Way, Vincennes, IN. This is quite possibly one of the best IPA's i have drank. This one doesn't have a powerful aftertaste like most IPA's. Very good beer!

355ml bottle from Saveur-Biere. Bottled 07/29/14.

Clear golden colour with a medium sized white head. Fruits, spruce, citrus. Bitterness has suffered but still refreshing for a 5 months old IPA. Would like to try fresh one.

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 IPAís 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.

A 1 oz pour from a tasterís 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.
