Bottle 650 ml
Aroma: wow , quiet American in approach, pine , spruce with slight citrus and caramel malts. Impressed.8- Look:clear amber with light off white cap.
Taste / palate etc.: medium full bodied. Reminds me of older Stone beers. Simple but well done malty sweet caramel hinted base on good citrusy piney feel. Carbonation medium , fairly soft. Bitter sides. This is very drinkable.

A solid IPA, generously hoppy. Dark amber in color with a cream colored head, heavy lacing on my glass. Tastes of citrus and hops, a very very solid beer but definitely not as good as some.

Hungarian_G (90) - - OCT 6, 2012
Pours a deep amber with a super thick, foamy white head that recedes rapidly, leaving thick lacing. Aroma is actually quite light, with biscuity and earthy notes and malt sweetness; little hops present. Medium carbonation carries the brew nicely. Taste is of astringent bitterness, some citrus and mild sweetness without much in the way of floral hoppiness. Lingering bitter aftertaste. Good, but not great.

Narnad (1471) - Wonder Lake, Illinois, USA - OCT 4, 2012
Pours a clean copper color with tall, cream colored head that has good staying power. Aroma has an aggressive hoppiness and appears to be dry hopped a ton. Strong grapefruit notes come in first, mild orange, some light grassy notes, very light toasted malt but the hops come through very nicely. Flavor of the brew has a definitive grapefruit and orange coupling with light grassy middle and a solid toasted and caramel malt sweetness at the finish. The malt is very well balanced with the hop and adds a great deal of depth to the flavor at the very end. Body is modest but has a slight crispness to it. Slightly acidic as well which aids in the overall citric acid fruitiness present in the brew. Overall a very well done beer. The flavors and aromas are balanced which allows each of the flavors to stand out but compliment each other at the same time.

TheJester (1958) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 25, 2012
650 mL bottle. Pours very nicely - an attractive copper-brown with a nice beige head. The nose suggests dryhopping - leans toward the resiny end of the spectrum. The flavour is disappointingly small - not bad, just a little thin on hop flavour and bitterness. I’d buy more if it came in smaller bottles or cans. Bombers are so awkward.

solidfunk (4474) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - SEP 9, 2012
Lacing is alright, big head in the beginning. Dark amber colour. Smells hoppy with some citrus and quite a lot of malt musk. Not a huge palate, but alright. Final aftertaste leaves a little bit of unpleasant astringency, but that’s really the only major flaw. Bottle.

WheatKing (1306) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 17, 2012
A pleasant surprise. Not dazzling, but just an excellent IPA with the PERFECT finish. Some finishes can be too bitter, some can be too weak, but this one was nice and full, which is what makes a good beer in this style for me. The non-finish beer was pretty average, caramel and citrus. Sorry if I’m going backwards here haha.

reebtogi (4362) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 2, 2012
650ml bottle pours a pale amber color with a finger of white head that settles quite quickly leaving a few spots of lacing on the glass. Aroma is pleasantly adorned with hops with some light caramel notes. Taste is dominated by the hops with some light caramel malt sweetness. Could be better balanced. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. A decent IPA, but could have been much better.

HenryXXX (201) - British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 30, 2012
The beer pours a reddish amber. The nose is sweet floral, grapefruit, and clover honey. The pallet starts with floral grapefruit hops and finishes with clover honey. Overall a very sessional smooth IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

RumRunner101 (807) - Alberta, CANADA - JUN 1, 2012
Aroma is sweet with toffee and caramel. Body is a little thin and initially sweet. A bit of bitterness comes through mid palate and finishes with sweet caramel malts. Not bad. Not great.
