Transfer from BA review on 5-7-13- Poured from bottle into a pint glass Appearance – Pours a lighter amber color with a two finger white head. The head fades moderately quickly leaving some spotty lace on the sides of the glass. Smell- The aroma is heaviest of a grapefruit citrus hop mixed with a little bit of tangerine sweetness. With these citrus aromas so too comes a pine and light earthy hop smell as well as a bit of breadiness. Taste – The taste begins with a decent showing of the grapefruit hop that was detected in the nose. A lighter breadiness and caramel sweetness is present upfront, with these two flavors fading as the taste moves on. While these flavors fade a bit, of a light fruit flavor comes to the tongue more toward the middle. This fruit however is largely overshadowed by the hop, which now becomes a blend of grapefruit and pine. In the end a somewhat drier and moderately hoppy taste is left on the tongue. Mouthfeel- The body of the beer is average in terms of its creaminess with a carbonation level that is average as well. Both rather appropriate for the style as well as for the abv and make for a clean drinking and crisp brew. Overall – It is a very drinkable and middle of the road IPA. Nothing too special, but enjoyable none the less.

On tap at the brewery. Pours gold with a white head. Aroma is grassy with candied lemon, flavor is similar. Dry piney finish with only a modest amount of bitterness. Nice lean profile, decent IPA.

jbruner (2315) - Athens, Georgia, USA - AUG 24, 2014
Pours a hazy golden orange from the bottle with dissipating white head that leaves good lace. Aroma is resinous, catty, amazing hop notes of citrus, grapefruit, earth, floral, slight mint. Taste is more balanced with a nice malty back end on top of the hops. Nice carbonation, slight bitterness, pretty amazing IPA.

TheJester (1873) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 18, 2014
650 mL bottle. Ridiculous foamy head. It looks like shaving cream. My first thought was that the beer was infected. Doesn’t seem to be though. Nice malt backbone to counter the heavy bittering hops. The hop flavour is herbal/medicinal. Not bed.

Spab (2388) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 5, 2014
650 ml bottle from Premier Wine and Spirits. Pours a murky orange color with good-sized, dense white head. Aroma is spicy pine resin, some flowers and underlying caramel malt. Flavour is rather spicy resiny hops with some floral characteristics, a bit of graininess and a subtle sweet caramel. Body on the fuller side. A little drying alcohol in the finish. Nice.

22 oz. bottle from Total Wine, Virginia Beach, VA. Deep orange pour with a frothy white head. Aroma of tangerine, pine, and wet grass. Bitter hop taste of grapefruit rind, pine needles, and lemons with traces of sweet malt. Bitterness lingers on the palate. A very good IPA.

StevieT (607) - AUSTRALIA - JUL 12, 2014
From a bottle. Pours a mildly cloudy amber, tiny head, big floral aroma with grassy notes, big bitter hops flavours with strong grapefruit, a touch of resin in the mouth feel. There is a lot going on here but I like it.

This golden beer has a very inviting sweet aroma of tangerines. It has a hop heavy flavor and a bit of a malt flavor. It has a subtle sweet flavor. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
