Our “East Coast” version of a West Coast-style IPA. Intense hop flavors and aromas of tropical and citrus fruits and pine dominate. A subtle malt sweetness brings the beer into balance.

Mildly cloudy IPA peach colour. Aroma is strong hop resin - nice. Taste is not especially fruity, mild hop resin. Very sessional IPA. Tasty! Finish is mild bite.

Hazy orangey gold in color, nice white colored head, good lacing, Aroma of grapefruits, citrus, tropical fruits. Flavor followed, big huge bitter bite, resinous, piney, just lovely. The mouthfeel was the most standout of all elements, gritty, grainy, lovely. Full bodied. A nice IPA.

4/III/14 - 1Pt. 9Fl. Oz. bottle @ home - bottled: I/28/14 (2014-244) Thanks to ajax25g for sharing the bottle!

Clear dark blond beer, creamy irregular off-white head, pretty stable, adhesive, leaving a nice lacing in the glass. Aroma: very fruity, passion fruit, mango, pineapples, sweet ripe fruits, bit piny, amazing! I could keep sniffing this all night. MF: ok carbon, medium body. Taste: piny start, very bitter, some citrus, blueberries, fruity stuff, grapefruit. Aftertaste: lots of grapefruit, some unripe mango, very bitter, little watery impression, citrus, piny, resinous hops. Smelled VERY promising, but sort of disappointed a bit, cause it was less fruity than it smelled. I’d love some more malty sweetness to balance it out even more. Still, a very great beer.

tmoreau (3052) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - MAR 4, 2014
UPDATED: JUN 26, 2014 Shared 16.9 oz. bottle, poured to snifters, showing a hazed, orangey gold color, off white head foam, and dots & dashes of lacing. The nose presented an initial, but quickly fading wisp of betadine solution, then dank grain, resin, and a touch of citrus. Just medium bodied, the taste offered a medium strength hop bitterness that was dry, earthy, and herbaceous, with citrus again playing a minor role. Not overly thrilled, but a decent IPA, nonetheless. Shared another 1/2 liter bottle with friends, adding ripened fruit, a touch of tropical fruit/pineapple, and this time, no medicinal hints to the nose, with moderate, rind & citrus bitterness that seemed to intensify toward the finish, but was tempered by a decent malt smoothness. +.1

Awesome floral and citrus scent. Great head on top of a nice golden color. Nice citrus taste up front then finishes with a little sweet malt flavor. Great beer.

Hazy pour is a robust amber-orange with a slightly off-white head that is small but full of lace and retained moderately well.
I was hesitant to open this thing so fresh, despite the brewery suggesting you do so, but the aroma seems pretty free of hop burn. Actually quite a nice juicy fruit aroma full of mangoes, pineapples, ruby red grapefruit and lychee. Very nice hop profile and with a good strength. Pine is light on the end and the honey and light sweet bread-like maltiness do a good job of balancing. As it warms, there is quite a bit more citrus, actually a lovely, light tangerine aroma.
Zesty hoppiness in the mouth is not quite acidic, thankfully, but still very bitter and showing more citrus dryness on the finish than the nose lets on. Malts are dry, a touch bready and provide good body. Fruitiness and light pine linger very nicely.
Despite their zealousness for hopping the hell out of their beers, it’s hard not to fall in love with the mouthfeel and near-perfect maltiness of MBC’s beers. If they ever come out with a European/low-alpha hop line of pale beers, I’m going to be VERY VERY happy.

All round top IPA. A bit fresher might have made all the difference. More balance than most WCIPAs, but still big on the skunk o hops.

Bottle. Pours bright hazy orange with a tight 1 finger white head. Gorgeous beer. The aroma is juicy citrus and pine. The taste is phenomenal with dank hoppy pine at first and then clean, light citrus on the middle and back end. The malts add a nice backbone to the taste and the palate. The hop resins are perfectly balanced, just the right amount of sticky mouthfeel. One of the best ipas out there. Excellent MBC. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
