ellolovey (469) - Georgia, USA - FEB 15, 2014
On tap at Thirsty Monk. Hazy light copper pour with thin white rig. Aroma of citrus and pine. Very bitter. No sweet malts to balance it. Very rough. A bit dry. One of the worst IPAs I have had.:

MartinT (8135) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 10, 2014
My Bottom Line:
This New World IPA develops white pepper, melon and citrus fruitiness atop mild straw-like cereals.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam covers the pale blond.
-The hop profile sure stands apart from the typical American IPA.
-Drinkability is high.
-Mouthfeel is lean and prickly.
-While this is quite enjoyable, it doesn’t reach the heights of their Hoppyum IPA, to me.

On tap at the brewpub.

A hazed golden ipa with a thin white head. In aroma, sweet caramel malt with light floral hops, resinous, light sulfur. In mouth, a nice caramel malt with smooth floral hops, grapefruit pulp, nice and smooth. On tap at brewpub.

Beerman6686 (4676) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 30, 2014
This poured a hazy light orange with a white head. Aroma was of lots of tropical fruit, light grapefruity too. Flavor similar, mild bitterness, popping fruit and very clean. Great stuff. Not sire what made os supposed to be like though?

SpringsLicker (3170) - Tennessee, USA - SEP 22, 2014
Draft at Jack of the wood. Clear gold body with a generous white head. Aroma of citrus and pine resin. The flavor is all resiny hops with some dryness in the finish. Could use a bit more malt support for a better balance. A bit thin.

jgb9348 (4843) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - AUG 23, 2014
Hazy blonde and light copper coloured body with some honey tints and a thin off-white head. Resinous and piney scents of hops up front - pungent and strong with some malt and floral notes near the finish. Medium-bodied; Strong fresh hop flavour up front with a largely piney and floral flavour in the middle and also with a nice malt backbone and hints of alcohol on the finish. Aftertaste is very well balanced, but the fresh hop flavours of resin and flowers dominate, however some malt and sugars are still noticeable. Overall, a very nice IPA with some great fresh hop notes and a very nice balance of malt and alcohol. I sampled this twenty ounce pint on draught at Lily’s Pizza in Raleigh, North Carolina on 03-August-2014 for US$3,50 - a great price!

On tap at Tyler’s. Clear pale orange with white froth. Nose is mango, pine and toffee. Medium body with a tingle. Taste is mango, grass, toffee and citrus peel. Nice.
