Bottle from Mane liquor. Pours a bright, cloudy golden with a white head that dissipates quite quickly but provides good lacing. First smell is grassy, yeast driven aromas alongside some woody notes. Malty roasty cooking flavours and an almost overbearing booziness. Bitterness is hard to describe and doesn’t seem to fit the mould of an ipa.....maybe my tongue is fucked from too many hope forward beers.. i dunno, but this is heavy in the maltiness balance

AdiBeer (1494) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 15, 2014
Aroma: light flowers, light resin and spruce. Appearance: clear gold, small, white, creamy head. Taste: medium sweet. Palate: flavour explosion, intense flowers, resin, grass, getting from the initial sweets quite bitter, somewhat dry in finish. Overall: amazing IPA, a bit weak in the aroma, but that and palate are nothing short of overwhelming. Pint at Yard House - The Link, Las Vegas. Score: 3.7

ARH (557) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 12, 2014
Sampled at Beer Hoptacular 5. Grapefruit and orange come through on the nose with bread dough. It pours clear orange-yellow with a foamy, medium ring and clear surface. It leaves behind an okay lace. The taste is a combination of medium high bitter and medium light sweet. The beer?s texture is oily with afizzy carbonation and has a full body. Citrus, bread, resin come through on the dry finish. The aftertaste is dry and astringent with notes of bread and citrus peel.

Draft at the taproom, yellow pour with a nice white head. Big hoppy nose, really nice hoppy beer with more of a malty than bitter finish. Excellent.
