ineedbeer (1261) - Oakland, California, USA - JUL 21, 2015
Poured from a can. Aroma is fairly hoppy with some nice citrus notes and stone fruit with lighter tropical fruit and resin. Some light cracker malt notes. Pours a slightly hazy gold with a medium sized, moderateky thick, white head that slowly recedes to the edges where it lingers. Medium lacing and small legs. Flavor is slightly sweet with some nice cracker malt notes. Medium high bitterness. Some nice hop notes of citrus with some pine resin and lighter stone and tropical fruits. A hint of alcohol. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carbonation. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth. Overall, a nice IPA with quite a bit of hop flavors and aroma. Light malt notes. Hop profile could be fruitier but its pretty nice.

tmongoose (1726) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JUL 18, 2015
Pint poured yellowish orange color with nice white head and lots of sticky lacing. Nice medium to heavy malt aroma with plenty of grassy and citrus hops. The flavor is strong bitter upfront and on the end just a bit off balanced nice malt flavor with plenty of hops. Overall pretty good ipa.

On tap at Bagger Daveís. Pours an orange/gold with an off white head. Fruity and citrus hops and malt in the aroma and flavor. A nice balance of orange sweetness and hop bitterness.

sailmon (2) - USA - JUN 14, 2015 does not count
Very tasty, light in color but makes up for it with a bold flavor. Good malt backbone with plenty of hop bitterness.

dsmith4 (44) - Reading, Berkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 28, 2015
Draft pint at Detroit airport (max and ermas) this didnít have the hoppiness Iíd expect of an IPA and lacked a depth of flavour to the extent it seemed almost watered down.

This poured a darker golden color with a white head. Aroma was of citrusy and grassy hops. Flavor similar, refreshing but a bit plebeian
