An IPA that doesn’t take no for an answer. Pine and resin off the top after pouring a dark amber with a large, lively, soapy head. Full on the tongue with a medium body and lots of hops to tickle your palate. Subtle on the malt, which is fine as this is for a true hophead. Easily one of the best IPAs I have ever had.

Drank on tap at public house 124 in walla walla. Full nose of citrus and spice. Pale golden and clear. Taste was excellent and resembled the smell. Balanced very well.

Transfer from BA review on 9-9-12 - Served on tap in a 10 oz chalice glass Appearance – Served a very lightly hazed golden color with a bit of orange tint. It was served with a one finger white head which faded over a moderate amount of time to leave a decent amount of lacing. Smell – The aroma was a blend of citrus hop, caramel sweetness and some more bready and biscuity notes. Mixed with these aromas was also a light earthy hop smell. Taste – The taste started out with a bready taste mixed with a very light caramel sweetness as well as a decent presence of some grapefruit hop from the start. As the taste advances further, the sweetness and the breadiness fades some and other hop flavors of a pine and light earthy nature come to the tongue. With the new presence of the earthy and pine flavors is an increase in the grapefruit hop flavor. While none of the hop individually grows very strong, tighter they create a nice hop blend. In the end, the hop combined with the now lighter bready base create a slightly bitter finish to the brew. Mouthfeel – The body is average in creaminess with a carbonation level that is average as well. Overall – A nice, but nothing exceptional IPA. Worth a try, but not one I would frequent with any great occasion.

Draft sample size. Terrific citrus notes and powerful mouthfeel. Difficult to drink slowly as it's so tasty. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

From bottle. Pours a hazy amber with small head, but leaves plenty of lacing on the glass. Aroma is citrus hops. Taste is bitter with a little sweetness, citrus grapefruit, and dry bitter finish.

355ml bottle from Stewarts Wine Company. Rating from May 2014. Hoppy amber beer that is very flavoursome and goes down well.

MrFecesious (944) - British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 14, 2014
22oz bottle. Thanks Nick & Sue. Pours a clear gold with a medium size cap that leaves a thick lace. Aroma of citrus, pine, caramel, and a bit of dry biscuit. Taste is sweet and bitter, and slight tang. Dry finish from a sticky coat. Very enjoyable for a well balanced ipa that doesn't strip the palate from hop acidity.

hockeybeerguy (1947) - Juneau, Alaska, USA - JUL 14, 2014
Reviewed from notes. This was poured into a pint glass. The appearance was a nice looking somewhat transparent golden yellow to orange color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated and left a nice speckled look to spread and leave a spider web fashion of sorts. The smell had a really nice bittersweet citrus to somewhat of a grapefruit aroma. The taste was mainly bittersweet with a backup by some sweet caramel malts. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. The carbonation was right on par for an AIPA, just harsh enough. Overall, this was a pretty good AIPA well worthy of having again.

Mastelefish (84) - North Huntingdon, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 13, 2014
Pours a yellow-copper with a small white head. Aroma consists of piney, Western hops with some hints of citrus. Middle of the road bitterness for an IPA. Fairly medium body and goes down easily. Would be a good choice to wean someone into great tasting Western style IPAs.
