Nice and hoppy. Nothing new, but still good. A decent alcohol content, and it’s always nice to try something new from Hop Valley.

12 oz bottle poured at home. Had to give this one a try since I am so fond of their other IPA work. Pours a bright orange gold color with a big sweet and piney aroma. Nice, semi sweet flavor with a creamy body to it. Has a little orange slices flavor. Refreshing. Finishes with some nice hoppiness to bit, but not bitter. Great IPA. Impressed with these guys so far.

Bottle @ home. Pours golden orange with a white head. Moderate citric hoppy bitterness, light flowery notes, hints of soap notes, and a light hoppy finish.

after4ever (6314) - Brier, Washington, USA - JAN 4, 2015
12-oz. Thanks, J! Pours a cloudy medium golden amber with a loose white head. Sharp tangy grapefruit nose with sweeter fruit notes, equally bitey, also showing. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Mid palate shows caramel a little on the toasty side, and hop acids a little on the bitey side, but cohesive and not unpleasant. Just a sharper IPA with a little extra sting in the finish.

Sarlacc83 (997) - Oregon, USA - DEC 31, 2014
Gifted bottle out of work gratitude. Score! A: Semi - clear golden orange color with a thin foamy white head. Some lacing. N: Huge grapefruit and spruce on the top. Biscuit and a hint of pineapple. Some bark chips, dry leaves, and earth mingling in here. T: Very bitter. Light bready sweetness. M: Medium body with a spritzy carbonation. Alcohol is contained. O: What a hop punch. Huge conifer upfront with a hint of citrus underneath.

12oz in Seattle. Great standard, inexpensive beer. Pretty gold, good body. Creamy, a little skunky hops. Balanced. Would have another anytime.

skortila (4646) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - DEC 25, 2014
Bottled. 15cl sample. The aroma has tropical fruits, citrus. Slightly hazy, perfect copper coloured beer with a thin white lace. The taste is moderate bitter, dry, has some pine, some biscuity malts. Pretty nice and refreshing.

RW80 (887) - Hoogeveen, NETHERLANDS - DEC 25, 2014
33cl bottle shared. Appearance: Clear orange color, medium sized off-white head (2 fingers) that lasts for a decent while and leaves fair amount of lacing. Aroma: lightly malts, hoppy fruits (Citrus and tropical) , a hint of resin. Tast: malts, some good fruity hops(grapefruit, tropical fruits, apricot, peach) a hint of resin with a nice good bitterness. Aftertaste is a good but bitter odd herbal taste with some fruits. Medium body and carbonation. More then solid IPA. Nice IPA with quite a full hoppy flavor.
