COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed with extra hops and malt in the English tradition, but with West Coast style. This deep golden India Pale Ale is artfully balanced with a fresh, powerful aroma and a luscious finish.

Yes. 12 oz bottle poured here. Pours a clear golden color with plenty of foam head and lace. Mild aroma with subtle hops and a bit of sweet citrus. High carb. Flavor hop forward with a herbal like background. Very tasty and calling it drinkable is a bit of an understatement. Solid IPA for sure, and for the pocket change price, makes it a must try.

From the tap the color is golden rod worth a thin white head, the aroma is rotated malts with hops, the taste is malty almost a red with Carmel finishes, but hops are present, good red ipa if a red ipa was intended.

Draft at The Yard, Seattle. Crisp malty beer, with some resin character on the aroma and following through the body. Smooth, resin deep hop and bitter grain bill. Solid.

CacheManyHose (566) - HONG KONG - AUG 28, 2015
From QC. Clear light brown-orange, thin white creamy head, wet foamy lacing. Smells of maple syrup malt, spicy woody hop, chrysanthemum. Taste is bitter resin floral hop, light lemon. Body is lemony, fluffy, light, a bit of pepper, watery finish. Really nice, esp. in aroma and palate. Floral and hoppy and interesting.

HKdIPA (643) - HONG KONG - AUG 28, 2015
Bottle from QClub at home. Translucent goldenrod pour dense sticky head. Aroma is big and really nice - like a floral grapefruit peel. Sharp but sweet and citrusy. Taste is similar, big bright floral hops followed by grapefruit peel bitterness. Really interesting. Good lasting bitter boozy bite. Unusually floral hop flavor - delicious IPA. Would definitely get again.

TorbenJensen (1444) - Valby, DENMARK - AUG 12, 2015
Close foaming covers a large portion of the flavoring. Only a little weak smoked malt breaks through. The taste is very lightly smoked and has a little touch of anise, before dominating hop bitterness takes over the whole impression. Its hop bitterness is full of exotic fruit and a sensible portion of citrus. It’s a real American IPA, that with lots of hops.

A malt and roasted malt brew with a bitter, fresh hop finish. Refreshing, straightforward and a great drink. Orange, amber, medium body.

euniceradio (407) - Worthington, Minnesota, USA - JUN 28, 2015
12oz bottle to pint. Pours hazy orange amber. Short white cream head. Aroma is HUGE fresh WC hops...pine and citrus. Taste is hop forward, roasty caramel malt backbone. Carb is low. Mouthfeel is medium-light. Finish is fresh dry hops...pine and light citrus. Good for a hopped-up bitch.

Excellent IPA! Really enjoyable in a tulip glass with some kettle corn. Nose: Hops, slight malt Tasting notes: Dry hops, with a little kettle oil. Barley malt out the ying yang! Excellent mouthfeel: Has 65 IBUs, for the fellow Hopheads out there
