Pours a clear golden orange color, nice inch of thick off white head that lasts well and leaves plenty of lace. Good looking brew. Nose shows plenty of spicy and earthy, floral hops, some smooth biscuity malt. Good aroma, if slightly muted. Flavor starts with a clean, crisp punch of spicy bitterness, moves into some light floral notes, bits of clean citrus. Clean, dry malt backbone. More light bitterness on the finish. Palate is crisp and clean, medium carbonation, with a lightly bitter finish. Overall a very good IPA with a somewhat unique hop profile.

12oz can. 01MAR14 date. Says brewery fresh for 180 days. Not sure if I believe that, but then again im not the target audience for this one. Anyway, not too bad. Bitter and piney. More malt heavy than I prefer.

Draught at an airport restaurant. The beer is a good and reliable ipa: no surprises and all good. There’s sweetness in the taste in addition to the bitterness of the hops.

Bottle. Light amber white head. Nose is caramel/pine/citrus, nasal clearing. Flavour leans more toward the hops but still balanced by the caramel. Finish does have caramel but has a slight dry bite. Not sticky. Very solid version of an old school American IPA, deserves its rep as a classic. ABV is surprising, thought it was ~7%.

Bottle into a Leffe glass. Clear yellow-orange with a nice bubbly head, although it collapses fairly quickly. Zesty floral hops with a note of spice, it smells good. Crisp, fruity but dry with a certain malty biscuit too. Very good. For what is becoming a mainstream beer this manages to still be decent stuff.
