From bottle. Bottled 1/28/13. Nice fresh hop aroma. Pours medium gold with almost no head. Tastes more like a Midwest IPA, kind of close to the Bells and Founders models. Incredibly yummy and affordable. Amazing citrus hop aroma with gold malt balance an a nice spice and bitterness at the end of the taste. Medium light body. Would love to have this on the shelf on a regular basis along with my favorite Two Hearted. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Reimer96 (1390) - Alberta, CANADA - JAN 27, 2015
Pours a clear orangish copper with a frothy white head that leaves lots of lacing. Aroma of citrus, pine, grapefruit, caramel and sweet pale malts. Taste is grapefruit, citrus, pine and balance from the sweet pale malts... Very easy to drink for a 7.5 ipa and an awesome dry finish.

Ce nez houblonné très très frais ! En bouche, de la mangue un peu trop mure ... C’est un truc très direct mais très agréable aussi ... Une IPA avec du corps, en somme !

LaViolette (111) - Brussels, BELGIUM - JAN 24, 2015
Very nice mango, coconut, hoppy nose. Nice orange, hazy colour. Good IPA taste, quite classic but very good for sure. Bitterness is perfect.Maybe a little light for me, 8.5 would suit better.

Solid IPA. Only slight acidic over bitterness compared to other 5 star contenders. Beautiful aroma. Nice finish.

Color oro y carbonatacion media. 100% IPA americana, con una potente parte de fruta fresca (lichi, guayaba) y notas de pimienta. Boca seca y poderosa, de enorme equilibrio, con gran textura y precioso final, todo amargor fino y lupulo fresco.

Zesty aroma but without being confronting. Very well balanced hops keeping it more sweet than sour, just. Good, refreshing, light with a twist of complexity.

Hangover (1076) - Atlanta, Alabama, USA - JAN 16, 2015
Yellow pour with a lasting, medium sized head. Grape fruit aroma with some light pine. Strong, hoppy flavor. Active carbonation, nice mouthfeel. Orange and grapefruit flavors, solid caramel malt profile. Lingering bitterness. This one kind of smacks you in the face, excellent.

veceo (680) - CROATIA - JAN 15, 2015
Hazy pale yellow color, average sized off white head. Aroma of tropical fruits, pine, malt and slightly bready. Taste is the same plus orange peels. Medium to full body, soft carbonation. Not much of a looker, but everything else is supreme.

HammerTroll (627) - Pula / Zagreb, CROATIA - JAN 13, 2015
Looks deadly, like some average pilsener more than an IPA. A hazy-ish yellow, medium sized white head. But aroma is just great. Grassy and floral, lots of hops obviously, some orange notes. Taste is the opposite, not so grassy, but with dominant bitterness. Long bitter finish. Thin body, soft carbonation. Could be better with few little modifications.
