jbruner (3780) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - FEB 3, 2013
Pours a hazy golden orange from the bottle with a fluffy off-white head and good lacing. Aroma of fresh hops, citrus, grapefruit, earthy, floral and funky grass. Taste is less intense, but still really hoppy, with good pale malt back. Pretty good balance, a little boozy, but really enjoyable.

On tap. A hazy orange with large white head. Aroma of citrus and malts. Medium body, creamy mouthfeel. Flavor citrus and herbal hops, good amount of malt balance, somewhat low key, it’s fine, it wasn’t my favorite.

Served on nitro tap in a pint glass Appearance – The beer is served a golden orange color with a one finger head of nitro driven foam. The head has a fantastic level of retention, slowly fading over time to leave tons of foamy lace on the sides of the glass. Smell – The aroma of the brew is big of an herb and grassy hop smell along with some aromas of citrus and bread. Mixed in with these aromas comes a little bit of grain and yeast, producing a rather inviting aroma overall. Taste – The taste begins with a rather nice smooth bready and slightly doughy flavor mixed with notes of an earthy hop and a bit of herb. As the taste advances the earth and herb grow slightly stronger and then maintain a presence to the end of the taste. Along with these hops comes some lighter citrus hop flavors of a citrus nature as well as some tropical fruit sweetness. With a little bit of grain and some yeast coming at the very end, one is left with a rather nice and smooth bready and hopped taste to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body is creamy and thick due to the nitro pour of the brew. For the malty tastes the feel was rather nice with the creaminess actually accentuating nicely the mix of hops and malt that are present in the brew. Overall –This was a rather tasty IPA overall. I had a nice feel, hop profile and malt bill. I enjoyed this one overall. I have to search this one out on non-nitro to see what it is like with normal carbo.

bulldogops (1681) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 23, 2016
Rating #1579 - 21.03.2015 - On tap at Venice Ale House. Pours a rich golden, small white head, minimal lacing. Aroma is grapefruity, pine, pastry dough. On the palate, similar citrus and pine zest, mild resin, mild pastry dough malt. Medium bodied and extraordinarily balanced. My favourite american IPA so far, lots of malt complexity and a great balance of grapefruity, pine hop notes. Superb.
