Tap @ The BeerMongers... Poured pale golden/orange with a thick forming white head. This hits the spot as a west coast IPA. Floral, vibrant, pine-like and citrus hops with a clean balance. Lots of hop flavor without being too bitter, and just the right amount of malt without coming off as too bready and grainy. This is worth revisiting for those special IPA craving. I’m hoping for six packs.

Thanks to gregwilsonstl for sharing this one. Pours hazy golden orange with an off-white head. The aroma has tropical fruits, modestly sweet malt, orange, pineapple and a bit of pine. It has a medium husky rough body with gentle abrasive carbonation. The flavor starts with pine, grapefruit zest, dry malt and mild alcohol. The finish is dry, hoppy, resiny and has lots of grapefruit zest. Really nicely made IPA.

Ferris (3896) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 10, 2014
Draft - Sweet citrus and grapefruit, with a sweet malt backbone. Cloudy orange with a good white head. Sweet grapefruit and an upfront bitterness that lingers like pith. Floral and a long finish.

12oz can. Looks golden/amber with a lacy, off-white head. Aroma of floral and citrusy/piney hops, some pale and caramel malts, and a little dough. Flavor the same with a nice hoppiness. Average texture. A pretty good IPA.

Draught. Pours a hazy amber color with a very small white head on it. Nose is nice and hoppy with some good floral tones coming off of it. Taste is bitter and smooth and quite refreshing.

Aubrey (3431) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - JUL 30, 2012
Enjoyed this IPA. It’s bold and bitter, yet it’s got some nice nips of caramel sweetness and toasty bread crust to complement. Hop notes are loaded with dank pine and grapefruit rind. Tangerine burps added a nice touch.

Shared with Strykzone via Facebook Chat. Pours a nearly clear amber with a beige head and decent lacing. Nose is pine and citrus hops on caramel malts. Medium plus body and a smooth clean mouthfeel. The flavor is earthy, citrus, pine, and caramel. Very good balance. Finish is a perfect bitterness. This is a very easy drinking and simply delicious beer. This is also number 4000 for strykzone. What could be better?
