Botte via unknown from Justin D. Pours a slightly hazy orange, almost no head. Aroma very floral, some doughy yeast character, but with a resounding freshness. Body is light and well balanced, with a crisp, malt forward finish that evolves into a more astringent resinous bitterness. Not bad at all...

Served on cask at Al’s of Hampden into a nonic pint. This one is 10 days old.

A - Pours sunkist amber orange with a gigantic two and a half finger head leaving thick, sticky, lacing down the glass.

S - Lots of strong citric hops blast you in the face right off the bat. Quite grassy with a bit of pine toward the end. Some caramel malt sweetness is faint but is present and helps balance this one a bit. Very nice floral hop nose.

T - Tons of strong, grassy, citric hops up front giving way quickly to a mix of sweetness from the malt and sticky pine resin that lingers long into the finish. Alcohol is hidden quite well but does come out a bit in the finish. Fairly well balanced until the finish when the sweetness begins to overpower it a bit. Very nice, but not the best I have had.

M - Medium body and flavor with moderate carbonation. Very smooth feel that helps blend all the flavors together. A touch too resiny in the finish for my liking.

D - Pretty high. I knocked it back VERY quickly. How can you go wrong with a hoppy monster on cask? Oh right, you can’t. One of the best cask IPA’s I have ever had. Great stuff.

Drank from a twelve ounce bottle. Not a huge hops fan but this was alright,the watery feel levels out the overpowering hops very well!

Had in NYC at Saxon & Parole. Pours a gold color - lighter than typical pale ale. Wonderful nose - citrus, pine. Taste is hoppy, but not too bitter. Very good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Hazy orange-yellow. Fruits, orange peel, lemon, spice, hay, hops and pale malt. Good balanced IPA. Hay hits the tongue initially and quickly replaced by hop and fruits. Sugar content is too high for me. Medium body, mild carbonation.

Transfer from BA review on 9-21-12 - Poured from bottle into pint glass Appearance – Poured a hazy golden color with a two finger white head. The head had a decent retention, fading over time to give a moderate amount of lacing. Smell – The aroma is heaviest of tropical fruits and citrus with a lighter bready aroma. As the name implies, mixed with these are aromas of a more floral nature with light hints of pine as well. Taste – The flavor starts out more bready and sweet with some of the fruit flavors present up front. Right at the start there is some citrus hop flavor which complements the tropical fruit flavors well. As the taste advances the pine hop enter he taste profile bittering the beer a bit. As the flavor rolls forward a mellowing herbal hop comes to the tongue and with an increase in the citrus hop in the end leaves a lightly bittered yet rather smooth flavor to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body was rather creamy with a level of carbonation that was on the lower side. Overall it was very nice for the hop and sweet flavors and made for a easy drinking feel. Overall – A pretty easy drinking and refreshing IPA even at 7.5 % abv. Slighly on the mild side in terms of hoppiness, but delicious none the less.
