Bottles taken from their brand new six packs! Pours a really nice deep golden color with a bright white head. Smells of an entenmann cake, pine, and citrus. Really large flavors on the palate, lots of caramel and resinous hops throughout. Great balance and always has a freshness that is incomparable, a joy to drink.

Poured from a 12oz bottle. Aroma is grapefruit and orange. Flavors are orange, grapefruit, citrus, lemon, and caramel malt. The nose was huge grapefruit, it ended up being a really balanced Ipa. My first from this brewery wish I a had more!

Davhgbrew (887) - Coconut Creek, Florida, USA - APR 5, 2014
Big citrusy, piney, resiny hop aroma. Cloudy light amber. White lacing, medium bodied. Very dry, resiny and grapefruity hop flavor. Has a bit of an earthy aspect in the finish. Big west coast dry hopped ipa. Prob one of the best bottled ipa’s I’ve had in a while.

On tap at Alla Spina. Had several glasses of this beauty. Pours honey orange with a fat, creamy white head. Nice lacing. Aroma is grapefruit, orange pith, and pine. Very dank, resinous, and citrusy. Orange pith, grapefruit juice, and some floral hints on the tongue.

tcane7 (1576) - Pennsylvania, USA - APR 3, 2014
Draft at Alla Spina. Pours a clean copper with fluffy, lumpy, white head and protruding, abundant, foamy lace. Aroma of tropical fruit, grapefruit, rotting flesh. Notes of grapefruit, onion, burnt cheddar, mango. Dry bitter finish

NikkTwist (1390) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 3, 2014
Draft at Moriartys. Tulip. Poured a slightly hazy tanned orange. Large frothy egg shell head. Unripe oranges. Chartreuse spiked with turpentine. Pineapple rind. Thyme. Apricot pits. Pinecones. Mango skins. Green tomatoes. Big floral, citrus and pine flavors. Bright and juicy. Complex and well balanced. Great wet hop brew that finishes smoother than one might expect.

TheEpeeist (3180) - Swarthmore, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 31, 2014
22 oz bottle. Clear brown with a bone head. Nose is orange juice, cannabis, toffee and mild pine. Resiny medium body with a buzz. Taste is bitter lemon, toffee, grapefruit peel and greens. Classic West Coast IPA; balanced but on the bitter side.

T- Piney up front with a resiny, slightly bitter back end. M- Medium bodied with ample carbonation. D- Intensely drinkable, huge notes of pine ... a great ipa.

Here’s a good example where you can clearly taste the difference between a normal dry-hopped ipa and one that has been triple dry-hopped. Pours a hazy deep golden with a raucous head. There’s a strong resinous background, with fruity and floral tropical notes. The bittering is very smooth and not catty at all. There’s more citrus and tropical citrus here than anything else. Very nice beer. Very very very good.

Bottle received in trade from BeerKangaroo, thanks for the opportunity. My wife found this in the back of the fridge tonight apparently it got misplaced. Pours a slightly hazy medium golden color with a decent sized off white head that dissipates quickly. The aroma on this is citrus, pine, resin, green onion, a hint of dank and a solid bready caramel. Flavor is a bit sweet with bready caramel but certainly has plenty of hop flavor to go around. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation and a sweet resinous mouthfeel. Great ipa tha almost got away.

Have enjoyed multiple times in many formats. When fresh, this is one of the very best IPA’s from the PNW. This shows dank, piney aromatics from the first pour. Medium bodied, this is quite easy to enjoy. Thick lacing coats the glass. A mix of resin & bright citrus fruit hit the palate & bring you right back to the glass for more. Lingering bitterness from the ample hops. Excellent.
