May tasing notes; Bottles marked "5". I’m guessing fresh batch. Very good with a light fluffy head, great mouth feel and noticable but not obnoxious (nor flowery, either) hops. However, an odd flavor to the malt… what do these guys brew with, anyway? And why call it "chunky style"?

Golden with large head. Grassy hop aroma and taste. Peach, sweet hops and bitter aftertaste.

Nice IPA! A little hazy, good color. Not very malty. Bitter with an interesting hoppy finish.

On tap at Quaker Steak and Lube in York PA. Drank 64 ounces of this delicious brew. Very mild tasting for an IPA in my opinion. I really enjoyed the citrus and piney notes. Initially sweet with a subtly bitter finish. Went great with my wings!

demmbonz (503) - Erin, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 24, 2014
Fresh 12oz to clear coffee mug. Slightly hazy copper yellow. Grainy aroma. White head with nice lacing and retention. Very easy drinking and well balanced, although the hops are definitely more forward than the malt. Perfect summer brew.

goochflies (48) - Kaiserstuhl, SWITZERLAND - JUL 24, 2014
Winner Winner chicken dinner. Very nice IPA and I actually much prefer it over the 90 minute. Deep copper pour. Crisp citrus aromas and nice solid but not heavy bittering. Crisp in the mouth with medium light body.... Just good beer

ComradeK (992) - The Vale of Dundas, AUSTRALIA - JUL 14, 2014
355ml bottle. Pours a fairly clear golden amber, with a smallish off-white head, which lasts reasonably well and leaves a little lacing. Orange zest, floral and mild pine hops mix with grainy malt and a little booziness to create the aroma. Sweet orange and more assertive pine hops up front give way to mild caramel and grainy malt in the mid-palate. Pine and floral hops reappear in the finish. The hops flavours of this beer are very good, but are let down a little by a lack of malt backbone; it feels a touch insubstantial. Pretty good, but it could have been a little better.
