COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed with the finest organic malts and hops, our IPA features a bright-minted copper color and a crisp, yet smooth hop bitterness. Pale and crystal malts come through with a malty caramel sweetness, balanced with aggressively clean burst of fresh hop flavor in the middle palate without lingering bitter astringency. A strong floral and citrus character from generous dryhopping blends with strawberry esters from our house yeast strain for an inviting and satiating aroma.

Poured a creamy white head over a clear, almost orange body. Aroma was pleasingly hopped. Taste was nice and hoppy bitter, with a good tart, bite to the tongue. Lundy at Firefly advised that this one was "not overly hoppy, and nicely balanced". I concur. Certainly better than the last organic I suffered through.

From a bottle. Pours slightly cloudy amber with not much head, big bitter flavours with a resin finish.

"looks and feels like a typical ipa...maybe a bit too carbonated? the aroma is pleasant, but not enough for this hop lover. the flavor is a bit of earthy hops and a sweetness that doesn’t quite add up. I’ll skip this one from now on."

Pours a hazy orange colour with a white head. Aroma is malt, fruit, caramel and hops. Taste is medium sweet leading to a moderate hop finish. Not bad.

Reviewed from notes. This was poured into a pint glass. The appearance was a hazy burnt orange to red color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within about a quick thirty seconds. Light lacing speckled and then slid into the body. The smell had a light citrus bitterness with an ample amount of sweet caramel malts. The taste was basically the same. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. The carbonation seemed appropriately styled for the beer and for me. Overall, I say this was a pretty good AIPA that I could down again.

Bottle. Pours a bright orange with firm white head. Great head retention! Not much to the nose at all, light pine, citrus and maybe a little honey. Quite light bodied. Light pine, honey and caramel but not much of any really. Does hide the 7.2% ABV very well tho. Incredibly easy drinking. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Aroma cítrico e caramelo. Cor âmbar escuro e translúcida, média formação de espuma com boa persistência. Encorpada com sabor inicial cítrico e retrogosto caramelo.

Banksiz (29) - Sacramento, California, USA - JUL 20, 2014
Slight grapefruity nose with some malt. Pleasant level of bitterness with no coarseness or harshness. Good noble hop flavor. Nice lingering hoppy finish. Well-balanced IPA that doesn’t shout at you with bitterness.

330ml bottle from Archive Beer Boutique. Rating from April 2014. This is a good solid IPA with plenty of hops in the flavour and aroma.

Good old standard India Pale Ale. Exactly what you would expect, and precisely nothing more.

Pours golden with a thick, foamy head. Nose is all sweetness with some berry hints and citrus notes and a hint of florals. Sweetness and malts are, in my mind, out of balance with the citrus and floral hops. A brew that fights to avoid its hop bitterness is a bit at odds with itself. A mild effervescence does help the brew roll off the palate and deliver a clean, summer-friendly finish, however. A confused but not unpleasant brew for a warm summer day. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
