ben4321 (4832) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JUN 7, 2011
Location: 12 oz bottle at The Pantry, 6/7/11

Aroma: The nose is fairly clean and hoppy, pine, citrus, some floral notes, and grains
Appearance: The pour is golden-orange with a decent white head atop it
Flavor: The taste is fairly hoppy, some dry malt character, grains, and a mid bitter finish
Palate: The body is rather clean, light-medium, with a smoothish mouthfeel and a fairly dry finish
Overall Impression: I was fairly impressed by this one. I wasn’t particularly excited for it, but at a random restaurant in Little Rock there isn’t much of a selection, so I went for this one, and I’m glad I did. A fairly quality IPA with a good drinkability, it should be of no surprise that I ordered more than 1.

probstblueribbon (3324) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 7, 2011
Bomber shared by Lubiere (merci!), served cold in a tulip glass. 05JN11.

App.: Hazy orange with a thin white head. Aroma: Lovely tangerine and other citrus fruits, peaches and apricots, brighter fruitiness, a little resin and pine, nice caramel/toffee to balance. Palate: Medium body, flabby effervescence. Flav.: Biscuit, floral, herbal, a little citrus, odd malt, zesty, slightly peppery, not loving it; dry with good bitterness.

The nose was vibrant, the flavour was tired.

Gr0ve (2177) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 5, 2011
355 ml bottle. Amber and crystal clear. Medium-sized off-white head. Delicate fruity and floral hops aroma. Crisp hop bitterness balanced by a nice sweet caramelly malt flavour. This is a very classic example of the American IPA. A very nice one too.

badhack (423) - San Francisco, California, USA - JUN 4, 2011
Pours golden with a thick frothy head. It smells sweet and hoppy and FRESH. The taste is similar with a bit of bitterness and a tasty, fresh aftertaste. It is a fantastic beer to drink.

honest_silu (62) - Jeddah, SAUDI ARABIA - JUN 1, 2011
I am not liking this beer from populous region of sacred cow. Smelling of plant field like alfalfa or sorghum in countryside of KSA that I visit last year with brother. Taste of strong bitter like spit from camel or even peel from tree fruits. One time wife forgot to place milk into ice box and I take a sip from glass on table. This beer reminding me of this time.
