Indra (2626) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - OCT 23, 2014
22oz. bottle. Freshly aromatic and hoppy aroma, very green, with notes of pine, lemon, tangerine, new-mown hay and leafy herb, along with some lightly floral and malty sweetness in the background. Hazy pale amber-golden in color with a large, fluffy, lasting head and thick strands of lacing. Flavor profile is nicely hopped as well, with plenty of citrus, pine, herbal tones and slight grassiness, there is some lightly honeyish malt sweetness present in the background as well, finishing moderately bitter and hoppy once again. A fair level of effervescence here on the palate with a smooth, drinkable, quenching feel and a medium body. Very tasty and, as advertised, IPA-like. Really nice stuff.

Holtguy (123) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - OCT 21, 2014
Bought as bomber for stunning price of $1.99. Pours gold with thin white head. Aroma is mild, floral and citrus. Pretty decent bitterness, like an IPA. Taste is resinous with pine and citrus. IPA-like again. A hint of iced tea flavor as well, with a somewhat dry finish.

vikingguy (814) - Chaska, Minnesota, USA - OCT 17, 2014
Honey gold with small foamy head. Aroma is floral and fruity. Taste- resinous hops, fruity and floral. Well balanced with crackery malt. I also seem to get some rye. Solid pale ale...hopped up enough to be considered an IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Garrold (1470) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 13, 2014
Bottle. Beer Central, Sheffield. Hazy gold. Thin, sticky, lasting, white head. Very fusty, minty, herbal, orange hop. Bit of banana sweet, which is fine by me. Taste is fusty bitter. Fairly dry. Full palate. A little greasy. Herb oiliness. Finishes light dry, and long, resinous, bitter. Very nice. I’d put this at 8%, if I didn’t know better. Big and tasty.

jonnyguns (1002) - AUSTRALIA - OCT 10, 2014
Draft at The Local Eatery & Water Hole, San Diego. Pours a golden Orange with a firm white head. Nose has nice balance of citrus, passionfruit and caramel malts. Taste is a super balanced pale - citrus and caramel malts balance it out. Nice bitterness. Sessionable pale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Lagerboy (1259) - British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 7, 2014
Bomber. Mostly clear orange copper, firmer off-white lasting foam. Tropical fruity floral hop aroma. Quite floral, fruity hop forward taste, mild lightly sweet pale malts behind. Average carbonation, medium bodied, well hopped. Grapefruity finish. Well crafted, but more of an IPA makes it: NFL (Not For Lagerboys)
