Beautiful gold color. This beer is super hoppy. It has a nice citrus aroma and taste, with a malt sweetness. Finishes with mild bitterness. Great IPA.

High levels of cascade hops, especially added late boil......balanced by a few less dominating hops for flavor. Very good tasting, and lasting hop body. I like this.

Tasted at the 2012 St. Louis Centennial Beer Festival from bottle into sampler glass. Poured a predictable amber color with huge white foam, long-lasting with some Belgian lace. True-to-style IPA aromas and flavors, very hop-forward balance. Well-concealed elevated alcohol percentage. Recommended.

My 100th IPA on tap at MacGregors. A very solid India Pale Ale. Good balance and smooth drinking. Big malt sweetness with sticky caramel flavor. Hops stand out with pine and strong citrus. Mild bitterness throughout and has a crisp finish. Good IPA.

On draft at 85 West in NYC. Pours a clear, amber color with a thin white head and a little lacing. Aroma is hoppy, citrus, grapefruit, a little pine. Medium on the palate with light carbonation. Flavor is bitter, hoppy, but with a nice malt backbone, and a bitter, pine hop finish. Very tasty.

Pours dark orange with a smooth bubbly white head. Aroma of fruity hops, citrus, pine and grass. Very fresh fruits and hops in the taste, with citrus, pine and caramel malt notes. Finish is bitter and fruity. Excellent and well balanced IPA.

It poured a golden orange color with a white fluffy head. The aroma was of grapefruit, caramel, and some pine. The taste was sweet citrus, caramel with a very nice resiny hop hit. A very good IPA.

Bottle [355ml]. Pours a clear golden-orange with an average size lasting frothy off-white head. Nice citrusy hop aroma along with pine, resin and fruit. Flavour’s as nice and just as hoppy, with resin, pine and citrus hops backed by sweet malt, some fruit and a bit of alcohol. Medium bitter finish. Medium bodied. Simply put, a great West Coast style IPA, and better then I expected.
