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.

Drink within 90 days of May 23, 2013. Served in Spiegelau IPA glass. Pours a hazy amber with a white, creamy two-finger head that settles into a nice frothy cap. Nice lacing and legs. Rich smell of grapefruit rind and pine. Citrus pith strikes the palate first and finishes with a heaping dose of pine. Sweet malt backbone balances the bitterness nicely. Medium body with lively carbonation. A superbly crafted IPA that gives the west coast IPAs a run for their money! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

It poured a deep gold color, with finger width head. It smelled like citrus and floral hops. Also smells very "clean" if that makes sense. It is super smooth and has a very nice hop/malt balance. Possibly, a perfect hop/malt balance. The hops linger on the tongue just a little bit in the finish, but not too bitter.

Bottle:   Thanks to Sloth for this one.   Cloudy straw, orangish, big fluffy white head, nice lacing.   Hoppy nose, but not bitter.   A little sweet and citrusy, slightly candied.   Similar on the tongue.   Very smooth.   Nice hop profile without being overly bitter.   Citrusy start to finish, but without the bitterness.   Moderate to full body and mouthfeel.   Clean finish.   Really easy drinking IPA.   It could actually stand to have a bit more bitterness, HAHAH.

Une bière ambrée, avec une bonne carbonatation et petite effervescence. Au nez, les odeurs d’houblons sont puissantes - ananas, oranges et pamplemousses, ce qui est tres prometteur pour la suite. En bouche, c’est tout autant houblonné, avec un petit côté résineux qu’on ne trouvait pas au nez. Les saveurs ressenties au nez sont un peu moins présentes en bouche, dû à l’amertume assez solide en bouche. En bref, une IPA assez classique de ce qu’on voit de la west coast - bien faite mais en même temps, pas aussi extraordinaire que sont "hype" le veut.

Love this beer!! The only reason it’s not my top beer is that I prefer the MO better!

Tap into a snifter showing a finger of clean white foam and lightly filtered dry orange peel. The nose shows sharp notes of cannabis and tart kiwi with steel tank notes in between. The palate is light bodied and fully carbonated. Flavors of juicy kiwi, pineapple and lighter notes of mango. Moderate hoppy bitterness that balances the fruit flavors and a light zesty spice on the linger. I had this in a bottle before and have to say, having it fresh on tap is completely different.

Very smooth hoppy, non malty flavor. Slightly cloudy blond. Good but I don’t get all the hype.

Lunch has a golden frothy pour with honey notes In the aroma with a dusky pine forest thing going on too. Really nice and floral palate. Smooth.
