It’s light and fruity with just the right amount of hops to give off a great floral aroma without excessive bitterness. Pours a light orange. Medium white head. Some light lacing. Taste is of citrus and honeysuckle. Some floral. Pretty good and very drinkable. A good way to ring in my 100th beer review.

kwik-lime (1628) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 14, 2016
Nice hop bitterness, fairly orangey with some pine, resin and malt to balance. Nice IPA, thought there may be more love for it on here to be honest.

beer-yum (1190) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - APR 8, 2016
Citrus pine aroma in a golden pour. Hop forward balance with a restrained fruity body that leads to a sustained bitter finish. A pleasant brew - but one that doesn’t stand out from the crowded field.

Easy to drink IPA. Not a heavy floral or citrusy aroma. Does not have a bitter finish. Good taste. For the beer fan that doesn't like a bitter IPA finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

asedzie (784) - San Francisco, California, USA - MAR 17, 2016
Bottle. Pours a lightly hazy amber, white head, some lacing. Nose is mildy fruity with floral notes - not too much alpha acid here - very mild. Flavor is very nice with a great blend of soft barley malt and lightly piquant hop resin. Very good for an old-school US IPA.

Schooner from keg at Draft House Tower Bridge. Pours gold/orange, minimal head. A bit too carbonated for me. Nice bitterness, but perhaps needs more citrus to it. I have had this at source in Boston and it was awesome, so perhaps it doesn’t travel that well. Still a good IPA.
