UPDATED: DEC 14, 2014 12/14/14: Bomber. Grapefruit citrus hop aroma with light grass and pine notes. Pours clear golden colored with a large soapy white head and very little lacing. Starts with smooth grapefruit and orange citrus with hints of tropical fruit. Finishes dry with light grass and pine hop bitterness, but still quite smooth. Nice IPA. 10/8/12: Strong hoppy aroma. Amber colored with not much head. Smooth with citrus notes to start before the hops take over. Hoppy to finish, but not overpowering.

Pours golden with a fluffy head. A great malty aroma. A very malty ipa. I like it a lot but I’m not sure everyone would.

On draft, Crazy Tomato, Lancaster,PA.,served in a shaker glass. Arrived with a 1 inch head, copper hue, awesome lacing and retention. Aroma was citrus and a bit piney. Taste is predominately bitter but had a real solid caramel malt base. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, slightly sticky mouth feel. Finished bitter that dried nicely. This is a world class IPA!

cwill (61) - Coatesville, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 22, 2016
Bright and clear brass appearance with a dense foam and plenty of lacing all the way down the glass. Aroma of grapefruit and citrus fruit. Full-bodied and very smooth. Heavy hop character, followed by a bitter dry finish. There is a thickness of malt underneath with bit of sweetness and toasted biscuit. Small hint of alcohol that makes this border on a double IPA. Hopheads will love it.

Rating #1951 - 2015.09.25 #CraftTakesSeattle Day 2, Beer 51, Bottleshare.. Aroma is grapefruity, pine, caramel malt. On the palate, similar citrus and pine zest, mild resin, Medium bodied and extraordinarily balanced. Lots of toasted malt complexity and a great balance of grapefruity, pine hop notes. Awesome.

Kosmokrator (849) - ITALY - AUG 21, 2016
Alla spina. IPA bionda e molto "inglese" con un tocco fruttato/esotico che le fa recuperare un po’ di punti. Dissetante e sufficientemente strutturata.

leghorn99 (219) - Livorno, ITALY - AUG 21, 2016
Giallo dorato intenso, praticamente limpida; forma un dito di schiuma bianca, granulosa, di buona ritenzione. Al naso il luppolo č al centro dell’attenzione: aromi floreali, resinosi, agrumati (mandarino, arancio), decisamente pungenti; a base di note erbacee, di pino e fruttate. Un tocco leggero di malto caramellato fornisce una qualche dolcezza. In bocca č fenomenale, vengono confermate le percezioni olfattive: forte presenza di luppolo, con note di pompelmo, mandarino, pino e agrumate; equilibrio reso possibile da un’opportuna dolcezza data dai malti. Retrogusto al sapore di pesca, mango e leggermente caramellato. Il corpo medio e la moderata carbonazione, vanno a braccetto con questa American IPA; per un perfetto e meraviglioso finale asciutto che lascia l’acquolina in bocca.

YigSvartka (276) - Manitoba, CANADA - AUG 18, 2016
Translucent golden orange hue with a mid sized white head that rather quickly dissipates. Pungent aroma featuring notes of citrus, pineapple, mango, caramel, grass and potent hops. Mid bodied with a silky tactility. Extremely crisp, refreshing ipa. Citrus and hops reign supreme with various flavours of tropical fruits present as well. Intense fruity citrus is apparent immediately upon consumption, then a lingering hop sensation gradually fades. Not necessarily temporally complex, but the instant flavour is varied and robust. Quite nice.
