A decent and very straightforward (surprisingly?) SIPA that still has plenty going on to keep you stoked. Great concept!

5000 (6298) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - AUG 9, 2014
Bottle:   Comes across as a sweet pithy Pale Ale.   Not all that hoppy, flavorful at least and not all that bitter.   Very soft IPA.   Moderate body and mouthfeel.   Seems like a good Pale, or a soft IPA.   Needs more bitterness if an IPA.   Flavorful, mild sweetness, but not all that bright.   Still decent.

fiulijn (15210) - 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.

Ferris (4959) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 7, 2014
Bottle - Pithy grapefruit and citrus. Clear gold with a decent white head. Nice bright grapefruit with decent bitterness. Pretty good.

mcberko (7046) - 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.

DrSilverworm (6934) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 21, 2014
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 (2112) - 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 (882) - 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.
