CelticBrew (789) - The Crystal Coast, North Carolina, USA - SEP 18, 2014
Poured an orange tint to a golden hued body with a fairly small off-white head. Aroma is quite floral, some malt sweetmess evident, but reminded me of European hops. Flavour brings some caramel yet it is somewhat overrun by a fairly acidic and astringent metallic hoppyness… I was expecting far more form this IPA. The finish is crisp and dry with bitter acidity and rendering of grapefruit peel. Ok IPA, but there’s so much more out there.

Niall73 (1780) - Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 1, 2014
Bottle. Pours gold with a white head. Aroma has a little honey, lemon, and a little bread maltiness. Light body, medium carbonation. There’s some light honey, lemon, caramel, some metal... It’s perfectly drinkable, but I wouldn’t revisit.

Light, not sweet. OK IPA didn’t blow me away. Not very citrus but light and pleasant.

maekchu (2134) - Hirakata, JAPAN - AUG 11, 2014
Tap at Full Sail in Hood River. Mild citrusy nose, with some solid roast notes. Pretty, bright straw color. Baby-food level of hopping, crisp and clean maltiness, some dark overripe fruit. Medium body. Nice, but not much as an IPA (doesn’t seem like 60 IBU).

ttoadee (652) - Austin, Texas, USA - JUL 5, 2014
Medium gold pour, thick creamy head with bits of lace. Nose is roasted grain and a bit of spruce. Middle is balanced sweet malt and bittering hops. Finish is pleasant, but not overpowering hop dryness.

Patrickctenchi (3662) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - JUN 27, 2014
Bottle: Pours clear, amber, with a short, creamy, just off-white head. Nectarine, sharp caramel aroma. Taste is orange-peel, resin, malt. Tingly carbonation.... Very nice drinking IPA.

Grassy/citrusy smell, pours a deep amber with a bit of head that lingers. Taste: a slight bitterness, nice roasted hop flavor with a watery finish. Light carbonation. Not bad at all.

generallee08 (680) - New York, USA - JUN 21, 2014
Presentation: It was poured from a brown 12 oz bottle into a pint glass. Appearance: The body has a coppery color with a light haze and a tall light tan head. The head holds on well and makes some slick lacing. Smell: The nose has a big malty and wheat like yeast character which is balanced by an equally big hop presence. Taste / Palate: It?s flavor matches the aroma and comes via a full and smooth palate. Hop bitterness is herbal with a touch of grapefruit and it lingers long on the tongue.

Tide (1788) - Espoo, FINLAND - JUN 15, 2014
Bottle from Hazel’s beverage world. Amber color, white head. Bitter taste with citrus, caramel, hops, pine and a bit of wood. Bitter finish with citrus, hops and pine. Good English style IPA.
