Bottle. Mild IPA. Pours a hazy amber color with a small off-white head. Nose is mostly malt with very little hops. Flavor is a little more hoppy.

Poured from a bomber with a (hand written expiration date of 6/14) Aroma - sweet piney aroma, not overwhelming but nice. Appearance - very clear, light golden color with plenty of carbonation. Taste - very carbonated/bubbly with a carmel taste to it. Overall not too bad, I would have it again.

Nsanders (567) - St Paul, Minnesota, USA - OCT 26, 2013
Bomber. Dark gold with a thin white head. Strong caramel malts, resinous and light lemony hops. Moderately sweet with a balanced bitter finish. Light medium body with a soapy feel.

HughConway (805) - Washington, USA - MAY 6, 2014
Bomber bottle. Pours orange amber, white head. Mixed hop aroma, body is bitter, finish is crisp. Bit more bit than 6.5% would suggest. Would have again.

Clear copper colored pour. Hint of malty sweetness. Pronounced bitterness. Splendid IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

douglas88 (6322) - Portland, Oregon, USA - FEB 18, 2014
Bomber. Pours a dark copper color with a large white head. A fruity orange nose with some caramel. The flavor is odd: banana, spices, lemons and oranges, yeasty, more sweet citrus. OK.

teemoney (89) - Wisconsin, USA - OCT 15, 2014
Poured from bottle into tulip. Amber/ orange/ almost brown in color with soapy white head. Big smell with lots of malt and earthy hops. Taste has more malt, with a lot more hop bitterness, and with a lingering bitter hop aftertaste. Medium body, with smooth feel and resiny finish. Overall, not terrible, but not great either. Could be balanced a little better, maybe.

camborne (656) - Hopkins, Minnesota, USA - SEP 16, 2013
Nice ipa. Good citrus and resin nose and palate. Hop dominated with minimal malt. Tastes as it should

ChiGuy68 (426) - Illinois, USA - APR 24, 2014
Tasted from a bomber. It poured a hazy golden yellow with an unusually large foamy off-white head. Had the aroma of hops and lemon zest and a bitter hoppy taste. This bomber was in my fridge for quite a while which may have affected my rating.

Ericular (686) - Minnesota, USA - SEP 23, 2013
Tasting at brewery. Pours a clear amber with a moderate head. Aroma is citrus, pine, earthy, grainy. Taste is a little citrus hops up front, and as they grow noticeable bitter, the malts come in and take over the flavor. The malts win out overall, making this IPA relatively malt-forward while remaining pretty bitter. Not bad. It makes for an interesting balance.
