Pours straw-orange with a thick, foamy white head. Strong piny, fruity hop aroma. The flavor is heavy on fruity hops, with a brief hint of alcohol, and a sweet finish. Delicious and really well done.

Thanks to Solomon420 for this awesome extra I poured this into a Sam Adams pint glass it resulted in a finger worth of white head that turned into a sparse lace. The body of the brew was a clear golden orange in color. Aromas of pine resin and citrus’ filled my nose. That really is saying a lot today because of my allergies are acting up. The flavor was a well balanced for a west cost IPA; I was almost in complete shock. Good mouthfeel with great carbonation for your tongue. I think if this was my local IPA it would be my go to brew. easy to drink and it taste like a good IPA should

Pours pale amber with whispy white head that laces well throughout the pint. Nose is rather rich with some grapefruit and black tea aromas. On the palate, the orange and grapefruit dominates with some herbal qualities as well, and a modest malt component in there to reign in the hops. Some malty tea flavors are noted. Finish is "juicy fruit" sweet and leaves a long, pleasant aftertaste.

Draft. An amber beer with a thin beige head. The aroma is sweet malty with light notes of grass. The flavor is sweet with strong notes of grass combined with medium notes of pine needles, leading to a dry and very bitter finish.

Big thanks to hophead22 for this one! Pour is cloudy copper with medium white head. Aroma has strong floral notes up front followed by grapefruit and orange scented hops. Some notes of honey and only faint malt also detectable. Flavor is floral hops up front, then citrus hops come through: grapefruit and orange. Pine hops hit on the end and in the finish. Finish also contains a touch of malt. The malt is not very detectable, more of a canvass for the hops - exactly what I like in IPA’s. Very tasty stuff!

Pours a nice amber orange with medium white head. Aroma very pleasant of citrus hops, pine, grass, and a bit of caramel. Flavor matches very well and is quite nice and flavorful. Very solid IPA and one I could drink often. Wish I had better access to this.

Aromas of flowers, pine, citrus, and dank bud. Appearance: Pours a golden amber with a decent fluffy head. Flavors of bitter, citrusy, floral hops, nice malt sweetness, and it finishes clean, not too bitter or astringent. Not overly thick,nice full body. One of the best IPAs made in the world.

IPA have been my favorite for about 3 years now. When I first started drinking microbrews I gradually moved toward brews with more hops until I found my first IPA. Wow, it was intense! I still have a special place in my heart for them, and this one is my favorite of those I have had.
