12oz bottle in a shaker. Pours golden with a lacy, off-white head. Aroma of floral and light citrusy hops plus a little caramel and pale malts. Flavor the same. Average texture. One of those IPAs that makes you think "I need to only drink double/imperial IPAs."

Pours an amber from a bottle. Typical IPA, somewhat citrus piney hop aroma and flavor, little pale malt addition. Okay beer.

Pours a clear golden color with white head. Floral notes, herbal, with some light citrus tones on the nose; follows onto the palate. Light to medium bodied. Finishes with more floral hop notes and a touch of malt.

Aroma: floral hops, some fruitiness, light citrus. Appearance: clear gold, medium, frothy, white head. Taste: medium bitter. Palate: floral hops continue, bitters intensify, dry finish, some grain. Overall: average IPA, very drinkable, nothing special though. Bottle at Museum of Flight, Seattle, WA.

EithCubes (5248) - New Jersey, USA - APR 20, 2015
Bottle. Nose is dank and musty, lightly sweet, has caramel and herbal, earthy, some citric qualities. Really fascinating aroma, spicy sweat sock stuffy. Pours Clear, rich golden-orange with a medium, dense beige head. Taste semi-sweet to semi-dry with a malty and slightly chalky full body, light crispness; medium citrus and herbs, faint spice. Very faint but pleasing cheesiness. Where’s the bitterness? Anyway, this is balanced and very traditional-foodie English, or, well, at least the kind of English that’s imported into the US.

12 ounce bottle. Brassy gold color. Creamy rocky beige head. Sweet toasted malt nose with a hint of piney hops. Flavor is honey sweet malt with spicy hops. Good flavor and balance. A decent Northwestern IPA.

375ML. looks like an IPA. pee gold appearance. Aroma is graham cracker, pepper and pine needles. Taste is very sweet up front and in the middle, lots of copper penny and piney finish.

DrunkSanta410 (657) - Houston, Texas, USA - MAR 6, 2015
Bottle at home, pours clear golden with white head that fades into lacy film. Aroma is bland, faint malts in caramel and toast. Not much of a hop presence in the aroma. Taste is better than the aroma. Hops come through in mild pine and grass, solidly bitter. Malts bring in a faint sweetness. Highly carbonated, average body. Average To below average IPA.

Roser (44) - Virginia, USA - FEB 21, 2015
Appearance- decent bone white head that lasted a good bit. Light lacing. Fairly clear (a little cloudy right out of the bottle). Honey gold hue. Smell- malts and spice. Clean. Taste- a little sweet up front (surprisingly), then on to the bitterness. The notes on the nose don’t really come through, unfortunately. Disappointing. Mouthfeel- medium body. Overall- okay, not great. Wouldn’t go out of my way to have again. Many better options available.
