Goes well with a strong cigar. Very hoppy and a smooth taste. Enjoyable for an IPA fan.

Light amber pour with a nice white head. Lots of white lacing. Citrus pine nose - very nice. Solid hoppiness in the taste, while the malt is present it does is certainly in the backseat to the hops and bitterness. A fine IPA.

Bottle. A very good West Coast IPA, lighter than some, but still full of fruity flavours and backed up by a load of bittering hops.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
This beer needs to be fresh and is best on tap. It has a west coast pine zest aroma with some maltiness. Flavor follows suit. When fresh this is perfectly balanced straight to the finish but it doesn’t take much age for this beer to begin to take on an unbalanced sweetness

Bottle at a Wetherspoons in Reading. Typical easy drinking US IPA, though this gets the hops balanced just right. Could make for a good session.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Reviewed On: (8/4/14):
*Glassware: Stemmed Tulip
*Serving: 12 oz
*Aroma: citrus, grapefruit, pine, tangerine
*Appearance: Deep gold with three fingers of off-white head. The head has lots of bubbles. The head slowly receded to a one finger head. There was tons of lace left behind from top to bottom on the glass, after the beer was finished.
*Taste: Pine upfront, sweet malt in the middle, and finishes w/ citrus and grapefruit notes.
*Palate: Medium body, oily mouthfeel, fizzy carbonation on the tongue. Finishes super dry and bitter.
*Overall: A great and easily affordable IPA that that is my go-to because I can it get it for a good price in my area, especially during summertime. Definitely a great buy for the case.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Very complex flavor. Some fruit tones mixed with a bit of spiciness. It finishes with a touch of bitterness. All and all nice IPA with a moderate ABV level that gives a nice kick.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Appearance: this beer pours with a very large beige head, takes a bit to pour it down, has a very nice density, the beer is a very clear golden color
Aroma: bread, egg, kind of faint,
Taste: citrus, very light grain, bitter, perhaps some alcohol, some malty caramel
Palate: soft carbonation, bitter aftertaste, medium mouthfeel
Overall: not bad but not my favorite ipa by a long shot, needs more from the hops than just bitterness, strong malt background but still bitter
