Gravity pour @ GBBF 2014. Gold pour with a small head. Moderate herbal character. Mountain meadow. Some peach and gentle citrus fruitiness. Flavor has some gentle pale malt ballast. Light honey. A touch of citrus. A bit of caramel. Medium body, soft carb. Feels a bit muted.

appearance: coppery orange, short and frothy light tan head but decent lacing. aroma: grapefruit and pine, a lovely combo, over some graham cracker and caramel malt notes. taste: resinous pine most prominent, followed by grapefruit and maybe pineapple; there’s caramel malt backbone under it. finish: dry, with lasting piney bitterness that creeps right up to the edge of dank. notes: I like my IPAs with a touch more malt at the core, but this was still nicely done. Bottle from who knows where, this stuff is all over the place.

This is a terrific beer. I have tried different brewing companies, and I don’t want to make generalizations, but the many beers they have can be almost there but not quite. For me, as a go to beer, this is very pleasant, good carbonation and head, but the taste is the thing. Malty background but just the right amount of hop bite and sweet finish. This company gets a very high rating from me, their other beers very good too, the ones that I thought were good are just an afterthought now. This beer is well balanced and refined, and their new Pinehople IPA is a smooth one too. Only one that has beaten this one out so far is the Ballast Point Grapefruit Sculpin, that’s world class and this one is one fine choice regardless.

Kinz (3737) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - MAY 25, 2016
Growler fill from Whole Foods Short Pump. Poured a light copper, clear, slight creamy head that lasts well. Aroma is lightly caramel malts and gummy pine sap hops. Flavor is piney hops followed by some grapefruit and tropical fruit notes, moving into a slightly sweet caramel malt accented finish. Lingering bitterness. For lack of a better way of putting it, this came across as a well executed old school IPA. Nice.

HoppyScallywag (297) - Butler, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 30, 2016
Unique, almost piney aroma. The initial taste causes the tongue to tingle entirely and hops tease it. The bitterness slowly builds to a moderate level and pine sits alongside it. Very good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

stevoj (3841) - Boise, Idaho, USA - FEB 24, 2016
on tap at City Tap House in DC. Smooth, mildly tart, slightly chalky IPA favoring some citrus hops. Hazy pour with soft silky head, dry finish cleans the palate. IPA leaning heavily towards APA territory.

Lubiere (12765) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 14, 2016
A golden ipa with a thick frothy off white head. In aroma, nice caramel malt with loads of resinous piney floral hops, light treacle, very pungent and pleasant. In mouth, a nice caramel malt with grassy floral hops, a bit lighter than expected, but balanced, quaffable. On tap at Local Tavern, PHL.
