so many hops, so little time...this pale ale hits you like a bag of weed...it’s got a great after taste and is preferred over the 90 minute ale...my favorite pale ale at this point in my life, I buy it whenever I can...

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.

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 (989) - 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.

jpkeskinen (190) - FINLAND - JUL 13, 2014
Drank from a bottle at an airport. An interesting beer. The taste is not that strong but there seems to more to it, a bit like multiple layers or so. Complex, long taste.
