Orange with some white head. Very strong hoppy aroma, lots of citrus, floral, and some grassy/herby notes. Medium bodied, fairly bitter but not overwhelming. Nice finish with a lingering hop taste. A very solid, enjoyable IPA.

Oh wow. From bottle. This is the one I’ve been waiting for in the line-up. A traditional west coast style IPA, full of citrus and pine, no real malt, nice bitterness, quaffable. Delicious. A decent session IPA if there is such a thing.

12oz bottle. Pours clear and copper with a small white head. Strong citrus aroma. Smells like a west coast citrus IPA. Taste is much of the same. Very little malt, which I love. This one is fantastic.

Lovely IPA. Floral character hits you right away. Finish is fruit, slightly spicy. Refreshing & full flavored. Very, very good.

Bottle at Teresa’s Next Door. Pours a hazy orangey copper. Fluffy head. Nose is fresh and a it dank. Herbal notes, orange blossoms light citrus. Nice bitterness and more citrusy floral notes in the taste. East coast level of maltiness but pretty excellent IPA.

12oz bottle courtesy of Marcus.
Appearance : Clear pale yelloe with a big foamy head. Extensive lacing.
Aroma : Great nose ! Nice fruity hops. Notes of mangos and passion fruits. Nice sugary notes. A bit resinous and piny.
Taste : Great hops, leafy and fruity. nice malt. Finish quite fruity and bitter. Carbonation is a bit too soft. Great finish. Texture is a bit sticky on the finish.
Overall : Highly drinkable. Awesome aroma and pretty nice taste. Carbonation could be a bit more lively. My kind of IPA. I don’t understand the low ratings on this.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Hazy orange pour with a thick off-white head which fades quickly to a heavy lace. Wonderful floral and grass hop nose which continues on to the finish. Medium body with fine carbonation. Citrus and grapefruit hops populate the middle and finish, but there is an underlying floral and strawberry sweetness that distinguishes this from many other highly hopped IPAs. Very nicely integrated, one of my favorite IPAs.
