fiulijn (14328) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 9, 2014
Bottle from QFC, Seattle
Hazy golden color with small head. Nice hoppy aroma, a bit pungent, fruity. Dry mouthfeel; nice even if there is not anything special going on. The hopping is moderately fruity and resiny.
Good, between APA and IPA, easily drinkable, maybe not as fresh as it should be.

mcberko (6000) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 7, 2014
22 oz. bottle, pours a hazy pale golden with a small white head. Aroma reveals a mix of different hops, including piney, resinous and citrus hops, and biscuity malt. Flavour brings out piney hops upfront, with some toasted and biscuity malt in back. The hops are quite sharp, but well-balanced. Good stuff.

Tasted at RBSG grand tasting. 22oz bottle. Clear golden, slight orange color. Thin off-white head. Loose bits of lace. Medium to bigger body. Smooth, kind of soft, crisp lighter carbonation. More dry finish. Light caramel, bready biscuity malt. Some piney hop, light spicy hop. Moderate bitter taste, light sweet. Solid (tho kinda mild) IPA to try.

Homer321 (1804) - Rock Ridge, Florida, USA - JUN 14, 2014
Bottle thanks to Dan. Nose is moderate citrus with some light crackery malt. Taste is slightly astringent, very light mouthfeel, kinda thin. Ok but nothing great.

DrewFace (724) - Melbourne, Florida, USA - JUN 14, 2014
Fairly clear, orange color. Light hop, danky, light citrus, caramel malt. Malt forward, hops may have faded but it’s not that old yet, hops there are stale, light danky.

Dogbrick (7634) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUN 8, 2014
This beer is a clear deep golden color with a medium foamy off-white head that dissipates steadily. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrus, hops and roast malt. Medium-bodied with flavors of piney hops, citrus and malt. The finish is moderately bitter with an herbal and citrusy hops aftertaste. Pretty good overall.

onceblind (3938) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUN 1, 2014
Clear golden under a thin-ish white head that leaves pretty quick. Big rich bright hoppy nose with apricot and orange zest with a bright floral resin and some bright blonde malts. Tasty and balanced flavor with some sweet blonde malts, a calming mellow hay malt and a balanced grassy and floral hop finish.

Draft at fields. Pours a hazy pale bronze with a loose white head. Tangy, estery nose, some earthy herbal hops. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Mild caramel and dense earthy finish.
