Gentle peach, toffee aroma. Roasty caramalt, rich fruity hops, juicy orange, touch of spicy mint, bittersweet finish. Nice west coast ipa, works fine if you want to get spaced out on hops.

Bottle pour. Medium honey colour. Nice cloud of a head. Big grapefruit nose. Lotsa nice mellow grapefruit/misc. citrus on the palate. Slow bitterness that peels away without piling up on you. I could drink a bunch of these. Shame I only got the one.

Bottle. Lovely fruity aroma, grapefruit and lime and orange rind. Just a hint of sprucey pine. Flavor along same lines. Gentle for an IPA. Good lacing.

EithCubes (5138) - New Jersey, USA - FEB 10, 2015
Bottle. Nose is room-filling resin and pine, somewhat dank and citrus-heavy, but mostly big on the resin, if a little hollow. Orange-golden, clear body with a large beige head. Taste is sweet from the hops and heavy in oils, bitterness only light but bright and vibrant, earth and more vegetal matter, smooth and conductive resin,. snarky pine, and increasing lemon and grapefruit, orange. Very light warmth, a little green, medium body is thin at times but generally smooth with a gentle surge of underlying crispness. Big floral/perfume character if I sip more quickly or down some volume. This one walks a fine line and probably won’t age well, but the hop character is pronounced and very colorful, about as joyous as that happy little cone on the label.

Cant really go wrong with these hops and these guys don’t. Lashings for citrus (grapefruit and orange) and tropical fruits in the nose and mouth. Balanced malt. Goes down smoothly.

Tap at CBM Koenji. Light orange and tropical fruitiness. Not overly bitter but has a bit of a prickle. Nice stuff.

Maltser85 (323) - Fargo, North Dakota, USA - FEB 3, 2015
Pours a golden copper color with a white head. Aroma is very bright. Big grapefruit, lemon lime citrus, a hint of orange. Some piney earthy dankness in there too. A slight sweet toasty malt smell as well. Taste is a bit more muted. Lively carbonation, slightly herbal, pine, more lemon/lime and lemon grass than on the nose. Slight citrus burst and dankness toward the finish. Sweet malt in the middle and aftertaste. Medium light body is crisp and refreshing at 7.2% abv. Nice stuff, thanks Bruce!
