jpknight22 (171) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - MAY 10, 2004
A bit more of an light orange pour from my batch in comparison to the golds, honey and coppers mentioned by other reviewers. Long lasting head with sediment coming to rest at the bottom of the glass after swirling for a few seconds. Roasted malt and hops in the nose, and a very present evergreenish, citrusy palate. Very nice mouthfeel and got a little better as it warmed. Very flavorful, even for the style.

Deep golden, clear, good white head. Lasting film on head. Nose of tropical fruit, fruity acids, salt. Light to medium body. Oily. Dry taste. Light to medium bitterness. Below expectations.

355ml bottle. Clear golden with one finger white head. Aroma is intense pine, grapefruit, citrus, orange, floral notes and cookie malts. Taste is quite bitter with pine, orange, citrus, floral notes, light grapefruit and crisp bread and dry cracker malts. Light to medium mouthfeel, medium carbonation and lasting pine aftertaste.

jc1762 (572) - Washington DC, USA - JUN 26, 2016
Bottle into a shaker showing well filtered, honey wooden hues and sparse white foam. The nose shows toasted and nutty notes with light hints of apple and honey. But the nose is completely dry. The palate is well carbonated and medium bodied. Flavors of dry caramel malts show through out the beer. Perfect maltiness if there ever was any. Light IPA bitterness on the finish. Great modern American IPA.

Smell: citrus, caramel, pineapple, bitter piney hops. Taste: bready malt, dank citrus, med carbonation. Finish: grapefruit, herbal notes, dry, resin bitterness. slightly metallic & dank notes suggest this may not be very fresh (bottled 01/19/16, tasted 04/04/16)

It's not a west coast IPA and that's a good thing. It's more balanced with citrus and bitter than most. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

teamsale (109) - Washington, USA - JUN 7, 2016
Bottle pours a clear gold with a two finger white head and nice lacing. Smells floral with some catpiss. Hits the mouth a little hard, slightly spicy, flavors abound. Tastes sweet but not in the malty way, this one is very well balanced. The bitterness is about ideal and the aftertaste is a nice lasting citrus.

MrOrla (2070) - Odense C, DENMARK - JUN 2, 2016
Bottle at Home. Pours amber with a White head. Aroma of pine, citrus, sugar like notes, fruity, hint of licorice root. Taste is quite bitter with some sweet sugary and licorice root notes, pine and citrus fruity, light grassy. Pretty old School.

Bottle. Golden color with medium white head. Aroma is strong citrus and spruce. Tastes of citrus (grapefruit and orange) with hints of tropical fruits. Well balanced and easy on the bitterness. Medium body and carbonation. Great IPA overall.

Tylerm24 (2) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 28, 2016 does not count
A very good IPA with a very citrusy vibe to it. Subtle undertones of Cedar and orange but atleast for me a very citrusy almost lemon peel taste. Mellow bitter aftertaste. Overall a very solid IPA from a great Brewery.

330ml bottle (thanks martjoobolut). Clear amber color. Sweet, malty, caramelly in aroma. Caramelly, malty, sweet, some hops in taste. Medium carbonation. Nothing exciting.
