Very nice, fruity nose on this. A sweet fruity rather than the grapefruit that is typical. Real nice feathered light amber rich gold color with a nice big head that laced around nicely before leaving a thin film on the surface. Nothing much on the back end which I like although most may not.

A very hoppy taste with good body. After taste is a bit raw of grain. Possibly the finish is composed of hop flavor. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

tectactoe (2348) - Michigan, USA - DEC 24, 2014
Bottle: Pale gradient from straw to golden-amber; murky, translucent, & topped with a quarter-inch of frothy white foam. Aroma loaded with citrus, pineapple, apricot, a hint of mango, all lathered with hop resin, pine, & mild alpha oils. Flavor starts off with more of a spicy, earthy hop vibe. White pepper & a heavier resinous profile. Oily, leafy, & plentiful on the bitterness up front. Lighter apricot & pineapple rind. A touch of sweetbread introduced from the malt with a back-end of fruity pith & ashy leaf bitterness. Dry bread malts & a touch of earthy white pepper to end things. A really tasty IPA.

Wow, this is really nice. Great cold, a bit odd as it warms, but still super tasty. Cloudy orange pour, decent lacing, sweet and citrus on the nose. Smells fresh. Taste is tart and tang, with a grapefruit finish. Orange juice tang with a strong lemon front.

Martinus (3063) - Baarle-Nassau, NETHERLANDS - DEC 20, 2014
Golden colour, white head, slightest haze. Aroma of honey, malts, light hops, straw, quite floral, elderflower, caramel. Bitter hoppy flavour, malts, quite hard bitter. Lingering bitter finish, honey, light butter notes. Feels a bit old. Best Before March, but what year??

Nice head. Good good color. Not to bitter on your mouth and very smooth going down. Ok beer.

Spab (2578) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 4, 2014
355 ml bottle from Niagara Falls Wegmans. Pours a clearish golden colout with modest-sized white head. Aroma is floral, citrusy and piney hops with bready character. Flavour really bursts with hops - citrus, pine resin and flowers - as well as a solid bready, lightly caramelly malt. Lingering bitterness in finish. Quite a nice IPA.

Underdogs88 (150) - New Jersey, USA - NOV 30, 2014
Nice bright citrus aroma. Yellowish gold appearance with a nice pillow like head. Flavor is all citrus hop with a pleasant bitterness. Malt flavor is bready but way in the background. Mouthfeel is medium high. Overall, it's a great tasting ipa. Great citrus aroma and flavor. Bitterness is pleasant and the malt takes a back seat to the hops, which allows the hops to shine. The only issue is that it has a little too much body. Great tasting ipa and will buy again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Initial sweet and bitter...hops show off and build on the palate. I would get it again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
