KajII (799) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - FEB 1, 2012
Botte. The pour was a light clear golden amber with a slight yellow hue and an average sized (1-2 finger) white frothy head that pretty much lasted throughout and had excellent clingy fluffy lacing. The aroma had a moderate dose of grass and pine hops, a light grain malt and a moldy yeast and had decent notes of caramel and citrus (grapefruit and orange). The taste was light, sweet and hoppy with a notes of caramel and orange at first and finished a bit bitterer with a nice touch of citrus at the end. The flavor lasted only a short time with the taste fading rather quickly after the swallow. Mouthfeel was just a bit past light in body with a dry yet watery texture and a semi lively carbonation. Overall a nice light, refreshing and tasty IPA, a brew that one could definitely drink quite a few of.

Bottle from cellarbrations superstore in hami hill. Pours clear golden with a creamy head leaving nice lacing. Body is medium with mild carbonation. Aroma is pine, slightly cheddary with a hint of honey. Taste is amazingly approachable. Bitterness isn't over the top. This ones quite citrusy with a slight hint of earl grey tea. Finish is dry but not pallet destroying. Great beer

77ships (5246) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - JUN 15, 2015
355 ml. bottle @ home. Obtained in a trade with LouS. Thanks! Bottled on 04/15/15. Clear darker orange, a few streams of rising bubbles, small off-white head. Nose is delicious USA hops, grapefruit hops, orange peel, marmalade hops mixed with light chewy malts & touch of candy sugar. Hoppy with some malt sweetness, pleasant & accessible. Taste is bitter orange peel & floral bitterness, reasonably strong bitterness, light orange marmalade malt in the back, light grainy bread, bitter pine, lingering pine resin bitterness, grapefruit peel, floral & faint candy, faint tropical note in the back, bitter floral nature takes a bit over in the finish,… Light, higher carbonation & lightly grainy nature. Lots of bitter hops in the taste even if they seem far more mild in the nose. Comes across as a solid everyday hop forward / hop head beer.

Perfect golden color with a little ugly thin layer of foam. The smell is fruity and promises hops. The taste has sweetness, bitterness and dryness. However it has a taste that develops on the tongue that Is a bit off. The aftertaste is dry and tart.

On tap at Rudders Public House in Kittery, Maine. Pours pale amber with a full, creamy, white head. Nose is fresh and hoppy. Taste is bright and bitter with a bold malt base. Full body. Lovely carbonation. Remarkably tasty, refreshing brew!

shoulderbroken (2674) - Tokyo, JAPAN - MAY 29, 2015
Bottle. Aroma is very piney, bit of citrus and quite malty too. Taste is similar. It’s good stuff. The initial hoppiness is citrus and a touch earthy, and then comes a little bit of malty sweetness. This is very nice. Finish is lightly bitter.

2015 bottle. A hazy dark golden color with a fluffy white head. Nice light citrus/tropical fruit aroma with an underlying pepper. The taste hits the same citrus and tropical fruit with a full pine bitterness that doesn't overwhelm. A white pepper and woody taste, what the bottle describes as cedar. Almost saison like. Definite malt backbone but not immediately apparent. Medium-full body. Very easy drinking. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
