mcberko (12383) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 9, 2016
500mL bottle, pours a cloudy dark orange with a large white head. Nose is fairly yeasty, with lots of earthy and citrus hops. Flavour is along the same lines, with yeasty earthy hops upfront, along with citrus and biscuity malt. Quite fruity and strong. Very good.

ABS (820) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAY 6, 2016
Pours amber. Grapefruit and citrus nose. Lemon. Very fruity flavour. Sweet grapefruit, pineapple, citrus, orange and lemon. Bitter. Some sweetness as well. Medium thick body. A bit oily. Soft carbonation. Could be a bit fresher, but a very, very good IPA.

Big fan of the Yakima Monster but tried this for the first time tonight. ..on par in terms of flavour and higher in terms of jammy goodness

Bottle from cellarbrations super store hami hill. Pours hazy orange with a creamy head. Carbonation is no mouthfeel is slightly watery. Aroma is grapes, slight mango, sweet honey and bread. Taste is wonderfully balanced. Has quite a bit of hop aggression that is balanced out by some sweet Malts. Taste is resinous, bitter grapefruit, wood and slight caramel. Finish is quite aggressive, dry and bitter. Awesome beer

beer-yum (1208) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - APR 6, 2015
UPDATED: JUL 12, 2015 Alluring tropical aroma in a golden amber pour. Lovely hop forward balance with a fruity twist in the body and a smooth, clean, bitter finish. An excellent local example of the style (APA).

Bule (1678) - California, USA - MAR 2, 2015
500ml bottle pours a hazy yellow Amber color with a bit of head. Great easy going hop profile. Complexity of flavor. One of the best IPAs I've ever had.

GlassBrass440 (314) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - JAN 1, 2015
Aroma of pine and grapes. There’s another sweet aroma I’m having trouble pinpointing. Flavor brings a mild fruitiness moving to a pine finish. The 7% alcohol is well hidden without any dominant flavors. Quite a smooth bitterness. No bite at all. Color is a rusty gold and presents a head of white and large bubbles.

jbeatty (1239) - New York, USA - NOV 10, 2014
Bottle, 11/10/2014. Copper pour, clear and sparkling, dense creamy head, good retention. Aroma is apricot, mango, soft pineapple, touch of white grape. Smells wonderful. Taste is tangerine, grapefruit, some biscuit notes, moderate to strong pine bitterness. Medium body, almost creamy consistency from the carbonation. Enjoyed this one a lot.

Big sauvin hit. Good balance. Classic sauvin flavoured hop hit with since nice bitterness, perhaps a bit astringent and palate wrecking. Good malt presence. Overall an awesome beer.
