COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

SG111 (416) - New York, USA - JAN 7, 2015
Bottled 12/30/14. Beautiful golden color with a frothy white creamy head. Aroma is big bold citrus, lemon, orange peel, pineapple, grapefruit, pine. Really intoxicating freshness. Distinct maltiness in the back, it’s not huge but it is noticeable. I could smell this beer all day long. Flavor is amazing. Lemon, coriander, mango, pineapple, balanced malty biscuityness. Palate is a sort of medium-heavy creaminess. Reminds me a bit of dirt wolf. Not a nitro beer by any means but a really pleasant palate, not too heavily carbonated. This is remarkably well done.

keanex (1606) - Atco, New Jersey, USA - JAN 6, 2015
Bottled December 23, 2014.
Glass: Weyerbacher tulip.
Appearance: Hazy golden orange body with a dense and foamy white head perched on top.
Aroma: The aroma is citrus heavy with oranges blended with mango, grass and a dash of biscuit malts.
Taste: Mildly sweet malt base with orange being prominent. Light grass flavors with a dash of mango and some caramel by the finish. The finish kind of dies.
Palate: Medium bodied, but lacking in carbonation.
Overall: This is my third time having this and I come to the same conclusion, it’s just not for me. I think that it’s a pretty poor value and the flavor profile falls flat to my palate.

kdhittel (79) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - JAN 5, 2015
Bottle from Paradiso Dupont in DC. Pours a beautiful clear hay with a nice solid, slightly off-white head. Nice lacing in the glass. Hops. Chewy. Piney. Effervescent. A "West-Coast" IPA that's not over hopped or overdone. Awesome.

Powerful citrus nose with hints of pine and strawberry. Clear Amber with plenty of long lasting head; good legs. Smooth, slightly tart mouthfeel with a slight watery body. Nice bitter, drying finish. Tasty!

[6911-20141109] Bottle. Fresh orange citrus peel hops aroma. Slightly hazy, bright orange light amber body with a huge long-lasting foamy off-white head and some lacy lacing.

Spectacular, wonderful hops that dominate the flavor and aroma profiles, had this on draft, off white head, a touch of haze color was a light straw.

Clownoisseur (344) - Buchanan, Michigan, USA - NOV 24, 2014
Pours a vibrant gold color, one finger white head that leaves spotty lacing. Aromas are dank! In your face pine, subtle mango and a rounded lemon peel scent. Taste is just as bold. Lots of pine upfront. Earthy. Nice smooth tropical fruit waves across the middle with a medium bodied malt sweetness...and then finishes with a nice moderate bitterness and citrus hop hop notes. Great stuff!

Hazy orange pour with a single finger head. Lots of lace. Bright citrus and hop resin on the nose. Medium mouth. Caramel at first, then grapefruit, resin, pine. Very tasty.

jercraigs (8289) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 17, 2014
2014-11-09. Lightly hazy orange body, large foamy off-white head and nice lace. 4+ Aroma is relatively mild, lightly dusty malt, citrus oil, light orange character. Flavour is moderately bitter throughout, moderate orange citrus, hint of tangerine, lingering minerality in the finish and aftertaste. Decent. Smooth average bodied palate, moderate soft carbonation. Bottle via trade with Duffman.<>BR>
