ARH (663) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 24, 2014
22 oz bottle poured into a Stone IPA specialty glass. The citrus and pine that’s advertised makes its presence known in the aroma immediately. The citrus part seems, to me, to be a combination of grapefruit and tangerine. There’s also some floral notes, spruce notes, and a light biscuit smell. The beer is a remarkably crystal clear (I could see my fingerprint smudges clearly through the liquid), sparkling, gold color (on the yellow side of gold) that has some effervescent bubbles ascending through the drink. This is topped by a huge, rocky yet creamy white head that takes it’s sweet time receding - even then leaving a rather large "floating island" of head - and coats the glass with a cloudy, puffy lacing. The taste is on the bitter side of balanced, but not by much. Medium - high bitter, but not punch you in the face bitter, accompanied by a medium sweetness. It’s an oily textured beer, that goes down smooth with the assistance of a bit above average carbonation level. The medium bodied beer starts with a dry, floral and grassy front, but blends into a sweet citrus by mid sip. The finish is a clean, refreshing, pine and orange citrus with a crisp quality to it as well. The aftertaste has some toasted grain and grass with a light orange flavor. It lingers, but it’s dry and mellow.

Solid IPA. There’s really nothing bad to say about it. It’s a perfect middle of the road IPA. Not too hoppy not too sweet, very well balanced. Big notes of pine, and citrus on the nose. Taste is bitter, with pine and subtle tropical fruit. I have had this in bottles, cans and draft and it’s always solid.

Bottle at home while visiting Florida. Pours gold with a white head. Mild dankness, funkiness in the aroma - also lemon, pine, trop fruit. Medium body, medium carbonation. Pine, lemon, grapefruit, toast, orange, quinine... Finishes nicely dry and bitter, little caramel sweetness. Good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours clear amber with a white head; good lacing. Aroma is citrus, floral hops. Taste is the same with a good malt backbone. Run-of-the-mill hop bomb IPA right here. I prefer mine unfiltered, but to each their own.

CacheManyHose (291) - HONG KONG - FEB 21, 2015
From QC, drank on 年初三. Clear honey-brown with thin white sudsy head and massive foamy lacing. Smells of hay and grassy hop, slight plastic, crisp malt. Tastes quite bitter - hay, dust, orange peel, slight plastic/metallic/herbal tinge. Body is light, bitter, quite smooth. Not bad.

Not my favorite ipa. I tend to like a little more piney a little more citrus than this beer. It's a good traditional bitter ipa but not the best ipa. It came in a variety pack 12 oz can ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

couleur or, nez expressif, sur les agrumes, citronné, légèrement malté, très belle fraîcheur. La bouche est légère, fait un peu diluée, citronnée, des arômes de noisette dans le fond, ça manque d’exotisme pour une IPA. Longueur moyenne.

The flavor are well balanced. This beer is a pretty good effort by NB. I would definitely drink this again.
