Bulk_Carrier (2571) - Temporarily, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 11, 2013
It pours a slightly hazy amber with a fairly large white lumpy head that slowly dissipates into a small lightly foamy lacing. The smell was a rich fruity and extremely sweet maltiness. Some caramel was slightly noticed as well. The taste was centered around the normal bitter hops of an American IPA but also had a very good malty backbone. The palate was about a medium with a bitter aftertaste and dry finish. This was fairly sessionable. Overall, this is an extremely well balanced IPA.

tfontana (76) - Fremont, New Hampshire, USA - MAY 21, 2015
Bottle from Hannaford Supermarket Exeter, NH. Aroma is weakly herb, pine, spruce hops. Appearance is beautifully clear copper color with excellent sparkling and 2-finger thick foamy off-white head with minimal lacing. Taste is mix of minimal bitter and sweet. Palate is light bodied, thin, with soft carbonation and minimally bitter finish. Overall, this is a gorgeous looking beer with only slightly above average aroma, taste and palate. Highly drinkable.

Ulysse (279) - Brussels, BELGIUM - MAY 21, 2015
First bottle whiff reminds of dough yeast and citrus kind of hop. It mixes the fruity part of oranges and the strong bitterness of hops. Elusive herbal sweets or medicines taste. Wouldn’t drink more than one.

Très belle couleur, nez parfumé... Hyper hyper hyper amère mais aucun parfum derrière. Du coup on termine sur une bonne déception.

jspronck (139) - BELGIUM - MAY 20, 2015
Cloudy amber color with tall white head, nice hoppy aromas of orange, citrus and fresh grass from the dry-hopping, short bitter finish

BenOver (155) - SLOVENIA - MAY 20, 2015
Pours brown-orange with a pronounced head and a strong fresh-hoppy aroma. Moderate carbonation can be even seen and is confirmed upon tasting. There is quite a good body, but it is quickly passed because of the carbonation. The finish is not quite dry, but more fresh.

Yonny (41) - - MAY 19, 2015
Tap pour at Boatyard in Annapolis. Clear IPA amber with short white head. Aroma was more hay than citrus, although initial taste is grapefruit. Strong aftertaste of hops (the snake bite?). Not a bad IPA, but drank after a decent wine, so maybe the palate needed more time.

Bosskie (530) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 17, 2015
Crystal-clear copper-coloured beer with a nice big white head and gentle bubbling. Smell is metalluc with grapefruit peel, resin. Touch of caramel and some fruit, strawberries, cherries. Nice full taste, watery bitter and quite astringent. Full body, refreshing finish. Subtle fruitiness.

DarkHeist (3) - rotterdam, NETHERLANDS - MAY 16, 2015 does not count
Een sterk aanwezig biertje. Een fruitig begin met een partijtje bitterheid dat volgt.... voor mij persoonlijk iets te bitter maar wanneer je trek hebt in een stevig biertje met een stevige hopsmaak kan ik deze aanbevelen.....

mjansen1310 (118) - Soest, NETHERLANDS - MAY 15, 2015
0,33 cl bottle. Colour is between dark yellow and light brown. Bitter from the hops with a grapefruit fruity feeling. I will keep trying but IPA still isn?t my style.

White, rocky, frothy head. Fairly persistent. Amber, fairly clear. Intense and persistent at nose. Citrus, litchees, grapefruit, resin, caramel. Medium carbonation and body. After the first sip the bitter invade the mouth.
