COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This IPA will “wow” those tastebuds and wake up your nose! Fruitiness in the aroma and a mango-like finish from the NZ Nelson hops used are sure to get you to believe in fate!

Appearance was clear(Floaties on bottom) with creamy white diminishing 1 finger head, rings of lacing. Aromas are citrus, pine, soft cracker pale sweetness with tropical notes. Taste are grapefruit, pine, lemon and lime with soft hints of white wine. Solid clean malt backing with soft sweetness, no alcohol. Palate was smooth creamy CO2 with medium body, lasting citrusy piney smooth bitter finish. Overall an solid smooth bitter fruity west coast IPA.

glennmastrange (2431) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - JAN 2, 2015
Bottle. Moderate malt aromas of bread, roasted and caramel, moderate to heavy pine and lemon peel for the hops, moderate soap for the yeast, with coriander and medicine in the background. Head is small to average size, frothy/creamy, white with excellent lacing and is mostly lasting. Color is medium amber. Flavor starts slightly sweet and lightly acidic, then the long finish is heavily to harshly bitter. Palate is medium, slick, with a soft to lively carbonation. Lots of over the top hop aromas and flavors, but just a little harsh in spots.

RHutch (11) - Vista, California, USA - NOV 22, 2014
Have had good versions of this and poor. Consistency is shaken. On tap at tap room is best. Typical IPA with citrus and grapefruit. Just ok, better out there.

Aroma is orange, grapefruit, peach, and tangerine with notes of tropical fruits and white grape. Flavors are similar with a bit of spice and slight maltiness on the finish. Very well made and balanced IPA! Cheers!

adster (511) - HUNGARY - SEP 28, 2014
Tört fehér színű, krémes hab telepszik meg percekig a borostyán főzeten, aminek igazán frissítő, citrusos és gyantás árnyalatú, tömött aromái vannak; a remek illatok alapján bebiztosítva érezhetjük a minőségbeli kritériumoknak történő megfelelését az íze vonatkozásában is. Sűrű szénsavhálóval beszőtt, közepes méretű teste telt ízeket produkál, némiképpen azonban visszafogottabb a konstrukció, mint amire az illatok alapján számítani lehetett. Ez természetesen nem a keserűség mértékére értendő, azzal a világon semmi probléma nincs, nem mintha az ízvilággal összességében bármi hiba is lenne. Egyszerűen arról van szó, hogy az ennyire fajsúlyos, édes és zamatos illatok akár egy imperial IPA sajátjai is lehetnének. Az ízvilág ezzel ellentétben jelen esetben egy jó értelemben vett módon egyszerű, letisztult és elegáns, virágos komlós, szegfűs aromák karakterével átitatott, populárisabb stílusú, közepesen hosszan elnyúló kesernyére épülő, kenyeres, füves jegyeket is megcsillantó, igen összeszedett IPA ismérve.

Fair brew, little cloudy, actullay real cloudy, not from hops but white stuff, may be yeast???? Aroma of bread and hops, distracting but not too bad. Taste ok not sour but just OK.

BucannonXC5 (1082) - San Diego, California, USA - SEP 17, 2014
Type: 22-oz. bottle Glass: 0.5L (16.9 oz.) glass From: Costco in Mission Valley (San Diego), Calif. Price: $5.79 Purchased: Aug. 26, 2014 Consumed: Sept. 3, 2014 Misc.: Welp. The top of the bottle near the twist off broke when I popped the cap, but decided to try it anyway. Poured a caramel. Orange, slightly murky color with three fingers of khaki cream rocky head. Great foamy layered lacing along the sides of the glass all the way down. Great retention on the top all the way down. (Sight - 4.40) Smelled a pleasant whiff of citrus hops, New Zealand hops, floral hops, resin hops, caramel, mango and tangerine rind. (Smell - 4.14) Tasted not quite as good as the nose, but good nonetheless. Booziness in there for sure. Got New Zealand hops, bitter alcohol, resin, rye hops, citrus hops, floral hops, caramel, Columbus hops (I think), mango, tropical hops and tangerine. (Taste - 4.00) Medium body. Creamy texture. Average carbonation. Long, bitter finish. (Feel - 3.84) Really liked this beer. Would love to have it again. (Overall - 4.10) 4.05 91 A-
