tgncc (2664) - Bellmore, New York, USA - APR 16, 2014
Aroma of very fresh hops, earth, flowers, citrus, caramel backbone. The appearance is clear amber, white head. The flavor is floral hops, grapefruit, some caramel, malt. Definitely hop forward. The finish is flowers, citrus, grapefruit. Medium in body. Nice beer overall.

Emeister84 (753) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - APR 15, 2014
Fresh hop aromas, grass, citrus, pine resin, light peachy stone fruit, some bread and caramel. Clear orange with a mostly fading white head. Dry, bitter hops with a simple, bolstering malt structure. Light-medium bodied, crisp, clean, quite refreshing, some sticky, lingering piney hops.

AgentAle (411) - Alberta, CANADA - APR 13, 2014
Aroma is citrus hops with hints of clove. Taste is a distinct bitterness that is perfectly balanced and finishes exceptionally smoothly. Sweet maltiness manages to present itself through the bitterness which is impressive. Appearance is a clear gold body with a lace head that retains well.

Nice citrus aroma and hoppy pine like taste. A classic IPA. One of my stand-bys.

MunBro (132) - St. Albert, Alberta, CANADA - APR 11, 2014
Bottle promised citrus and pine and I am getting 1/2 of the deal out of this bottle. Aroma of hops and pine. Drinking out of the bottle. Taste of hops (cascade hops are very prominent here, and even though Fat Tire is just as mass produced as brands like Keiths it blows their piss attempt at using cascade hops out of the water), also strong notes of pine and some floral notes. I am getting almost no citrus whatsoever, but the flavors that are here are well balanced and tasty and pretty much make up for it.

northropfrye (1946) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - APR 11, 2014
Thanks cards04 for this one. Light apple amber colour with foamy white head and nice lacing. Slight citrus hop aroma. Taste is sweet malty with a touch of bitter hop aftertaste. Lightish palate. A starter IPA, but a decent one.

All in all a delicious IPA. Pour is beautiful with a thick white head. Aroma is hoppy and full.

12oz bottle. Not a fan of IPAs. This isn’t horrible but not my favorite. Nice floral scent and taste but it’s a little too hoppy on the finish for me.
