JoeMcPhee (8302) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 30, 2010
Tap at Rattle N Hum. Hazy golden pour. Thick, pillowy sticky head. The nose is quite piny and resinous with a touch of light citrus. Very bright sticky hop nose. Tooth-coating hop oils and a nice sticky hop character. Really quite fresh. The malts are definitely here but they don’t really interfere with the hops at all. As it warms up the hops fade a little bit leaving a more juicy orange-citrus from behind the bright pine resin. Nice, solid well-crafted IPA

jbardin (161) - New York, USA - AUG 6, 2010
On tap at RnH, 8/6/2010. Strong floral fresh hop aroma, like a muted Pliny. Taste less distinct--expected hop flavors, without as much freshness as the aroma. Still very good, a quite above-average locally produced IPA.

colinize (317) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JAN 23, 2013
On tap at Top Hops. Pours slightly dark gold. Head dissipates quickly but leaves great lacing down the glass. Subtle floral hop aroma. Great citrus, spicy hop flavor. Really tasty. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ben4321 (3759) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - APR 18, 2010
Location: On tap at RnH, 3/22/10

Aroma: The aroma is lots of pine/resin, with a nice hop feel
Appearance: Pours an orange color with a white head
Flavor: Taste is resiny as well, mild sweetness, medium bitter
Palate: It has a nice mouthfeel and a medium body
Overall Impression: Overall, this beer is pretty nice. This is my first Kelso beer, though I have had a bunch of the Heartland stuff, and I now see they are related through Greenpoint. Anyway, I liked this beer, a very solid IPA.

italarican (1470) - Winston-Salem, North Carolina, USA - AUG 6, 2011
Tap at a modern Mexican restaurant in Astoria. Pours bronze with a rocky white head. Aroma has a strong floral hops presence. Flavor has the same floral goodness with some honey. Moderately strong bite with lots of flowers, perfume, and honey. This was perfect with the duck and pollack tacos I had with it.
