Pours a nice hazy amber with a medium tan head and hints of lacing. Lots of malt, caramel and citrus in the aroma. Flavor is similar, but lighter. Good hoppy bitter finish. A great IPA, and very drinkable.

A definite NW IPA to try. Great aroma, taste, and finish. This beer should be entered into competitions. Give it a try! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Loved this piney, citrusy northwest IPA. Clear and golden in color, this fantastic beer had a really nice mouthfeel that was crisp and refreshing.

This is my kind of IPA. The scent and taste up front are quite floral. Aftertaste is pleasantly bitter without making my mouth pucker. No soapy flavors present. Bubbles are tiny, floating up to a thin, fluffy head. Finish is smooth.

Bottle pours an orange brew with a white head. Scent is very hoppy with citrus and pine blending. Taste is pine, caramel and citrus. Everything I want in an IPA.

Very Clear light amber color. Nice autum like hop scents. Good bitter hop that fades quick and pleasant. Leaves a light hop stain behind.

malrubius (1865) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - SEP 11, 2014
Can from Joeís. Hazy goldwith small head and lace. Fresh orangy citrus aroma with a little grainy bready malt. Orangy mild honey crackery sweetness with fresh citrusy orange rind bitterness and and little lingering pine. Medium body nice carbo accentuates hops. Just your average excellent IPA. And just because it seems almost everybody can make an excellent IPA these days doesnít mean that theyíre still not excellent.

Fresh ripe citrus that borders on tangerine with a moderate tart bite. Caramel malt body with a little toffee note that is thick and velvety smooth.

Draft at Din Tai Fung

This is hands-down one of the best IPAs Iíve ever had. Iím sure I have a number of four point something IPAs from the 20-0-somethings, But to break 4.0 in the 20-teens takes something special. This one has that something. Deep hazy yellow pour with a fine creamy white head. Citrus nose reflects deep citrus flavors that arenít the least bit hop-oily, just juicy and delicious, an abundance of hop flavor almost without hop bitterness. This is really, really well done. Iím very impressed by Hop Valley thus far: Citrus Mistress was really good, and this is even better.

Letís see if the bottle in my fridge comes anywhere close...
