12oz can, medium orange/copper color, almond-colored head, nice and frothy. aroma is indeed loaded with classic west coast hops, grapefruity and moderately caramel. flavor has a similar profile to aroma. quite a well balanced beer.

Pours a clear golden with a really big white head. Aroma is pine cones. Taste is sweet pale malt and plenty of pine and grapefruit hop bitterness. If you like American IPAs, you can’t go wrong here.

Transfer from BA review on 10-20-12- Poured from bottle into pint glass Appearance – Pours an amber color with a huge white head. The head is rocky in nature and has fantastic retention, slowly fading over time to give great lacing. Smell – The aroma was heaviest of a malt and some piney hops. While these were the most prevalent there were some good strong notes of grapefruit and some sweet caramel as well. Taste – The taste starts out with some flavors of a light caramel sweetness and a biscuit like flavor. As it advances more the taste dries out with a more biscuit like flavor coming to the tongue as well as some more hoppy flavors. At first the hoppy flavors are almost entirely of a pine nature. This however changes as the taste advances and the pine is joined by other hop flavors of a grapefruit and earthy nature as well. In the end a drier ,hopped flavor is left to linger on the tongue; rather pleasant. Mouthfeel – The body of the beer was on the slightly above average side in terms of creaminess with a carbonation level that was on the lower side. The lower carbonation, while good for the hop flavors, made it a little less refreshing. Overall the feel was fine, although I think a bit more carbonation to make it crisper and more refreshing may have done it well; it is hard to say for sure. Overall – A nice blend of hop flavors and a bit on the drier side. The brew had nice flavor transitions and a good flavor profile making it a rather nice, affordable, and tasty IPA. I say definitely give it a go!!!

Pours rich gold with a tan hue. Small carbonation. Smells of citrus and pine. Nice mouthfeel with bitter grapefruit rind and piney aftertaste. Pretty good.

65 cl. bottle split by 3 @ “Memorabel Tastingkje”. Thanks to tderoeck! Spare off-white lightly cloudy, lighter lemon golden. Mellow juicy hops, hay, white grape, pine, grass, lemon, plenty of citrus, faint ginger, floral, very easy to drink citrus punch. Very light, super easy to drink, soft carbonation, touch watery body – in a good way meaning this drinks like water, supremely sessionable. I could drink this all day long, great session beer. I can see why this one comes in a big bottle.

Poured from bottle into a tulip glass. Small head and nice hoppy aroma with a hint of fruit. Very balanced IPA; does a great job incorporating bitterness with a hint of cirtus and pine. Finishes clean and is very drinkable. Will crack another one open, really enjoyed this IPA.

miamibrewer (6) - Florida, USA - AUG 5, 2014 does not count
Beautiful resin, floral, fruit character in the aroma. Spicy yet fruity hop flavor with mild malt profile. I would consider this a west coast IPA; lacks huge maltiness of an east coast IPA. Definitely my style. Highly recommend it! Follow me on Twitter @miamibrewer305
