Poured from a 12 ounce bottle. I am surprised, the bottling date is 5 months ago and this is still brite and crisp. No oxidized hops. Big citrusy and pine hop notes throughout, the malts are bready and slightly sweet. This is a solid IPA.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle thanks to Brian! Pours crystal clear orange, medium off-white head, dissipates slowly, nice lacing. Aroma of caramel and pine is pretty standard for an IPA that has lost its distinctiveness due to age. Flavor is light sweet, light bitter, floral, pine, not harsh. Medium body. After it was gone I noticed a 4/24/14 date on the bottle. Certainly not old by any means, but I am guessing this one needs to be super fresh to be appreciated.

It has a very distinct IPA flavor. Like nothing I’ve had before. Good alcohol content as well.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
From a bomber into an imperial pint. Pours a very pretty glowing orange. Plenty of sticky white head. Mouthfeel is light but sappy. Good deal of carb. Taste is slightly like grapefruit pith with pine melted in. Strawberry lemon grass herb and pine sol predominate. Good IPA but not great. Could have been the freshness but who knows????? Very good value at $6.50 a bomber in PA.

12oz bottle from CANBIF 2014. Clear vibrant golden pour with a nice light tan head that fades to a thin film. Semi-fresh citrus, some pine, floral, bit of lemon rind, moderate body and carbonation, becomes dry, slightly bitter, balanced, crisp finish, very enjoyable.
