COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This bitter beer hits major-key notes of citrus and flowers, but finishes with a mellowing, hoppy flourish. Smooth and spirited at the same time?

Hopped with Centennial, Cascade and Falconer’s Fight

suurjuust (1530) - ESTONIA - JAN 28, 2015
Hazy golden orange, medium white head. Nose is citric, tropical fruit, bicuity malts, slight caramel sweetness. Flavor is pine and grapefruit, a firm bitterness with slight caramel and malt, tropical fruit. Slightly dry finish with grapefruit. Lively carbonation. Very drinkable, but not remarkable, a decent middle-of-the-road IPA.

jonas (5996) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - JAN 14, 2015
Bottle. Cloudy orange, off-white creamy lace. Lemongrass, lime, and tropical fruit aroma. Medium light dry body, somewhat metallic bitterness, a hint bandaid. Bit light on the malt, lovely hops though.

Vladivostok (302) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - DEC 29, 2014
Mid-amber and slightly hazy (depending on how you pour it) with a thin white lacing. Big aroma reminiscent of a brewery’s hop store! Huge flavours of caramel and citrus, although thankfully not as overpoweringly citrusy as some. The pay-off for all this flavour is a long and rather thin bitter finish but a all in all a really likeable robust IPA, albeit one you might like to reserve for special occasions.

lbcgreg (46) - British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 21, 2014
A medium bodied beer. Very strong hop and floral aroma. A strong hop bitterness with a sweet finish. Not as hoppy as you expect.

RumRunner101 (853) - Alberta, CANADA - OCT 18, 2014
Light copper pour with a slight haze and white head. Aroma is bright with citrus, sweet bread, fresh malt. Bitter throughout with grapefruit, nectarine and decent malt sweetness. Tasty.

Ferris (6746) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 8, 2014
Draft - Grapefruit and a nice caramel backbone. Hazy gold with a decent white head. Slightly pithy and resinous with a bit of fruity sweetness. Ok, but nothing special.

brokensail (12277) - Orange County, California, USA - AUG 26, 2014
On tap @ Bitter Tasting Room. Hazed orange/amber pour with a white head. Nose has a really nice citrus character to it. Some grapefruit and orange peel, mild bread, and a fair bit of pineapple. Light pine and grass. Flavor has a good sweetness to it of pineapple and peach. Bitter pine, grass, and grapefruit. Slight maltiness of caramel and bread.

Peru solid ipa. Nice bitterness, but not too much. Refreshing flavorful, fruity, drinkable and fresh.

I liked this one. Good American styleIPA from a Canadian brewer. On tap, pours amber. Good nose of light grapefruit, tropical fruit, hop. Taste is a little malty forward with great citrus hop follow up, nice texture on the palate. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: NOV 23, 2014 En fût, cette bière est presque la perfection d’un IPA. Le goût est comme manger une fleur d’houblon ’centennial’ (je l’ai fait!) mais parfaitement équilibré avec du malt. Ambré/jaune avec une mousse moyenne blanche. L’arôme du pin, agrumes, et un peu du malt. Le goût est du pin et agrumes avec un peu du malt. Très facile à boire et très fraîche.
