Pours a mostly-transparent yellow-orange color, with a thick, fluffy head. The aroma features a fragrant combination of pine and some light citrus, which is balanced by a reasonably substantial malty sweetness. The flavor is similarly a juicy combination of grapefruit and pine, with only enough underlying sweetness to keep the assertively bitter hop flavors from overwhelming. The texture is pleasantly light yet resinous, which helps this beer go down relatively smoothly, but it is really the bold, varied hop character that makes this beer what it is.

On tap - Pours a clear golden color with a dense bone-white head. The smell is fruity hops, citrus, caramel. The taste is Tropical fruit, citrus, mild caramel, graham cracker ending dry with only a touch of bitterness. Quite nicely balanced and drinkable. Light+ in body with average carbonation.

theOptimator (292) - Sacramento, California, USA - JAN 18, 2015
Aroma is citrus hop forward. Appearance is dark golden clear with small had. Taste is citrus hop aroma forward with sharp hop bitterness and a bit of sweet malt to keep things together. Palate is medium and crisp. Overall a decent IPA. Nothing incredible here but still a quality easily found IPA.

Arcadia (51) - DeLand, Florida, USA - JAN 9, 2015
Bottle from ABC. Pours a clear gold with a thin white head that disappears almost instantly. Lacing is nice, aroma is very earthy - grass, floral, herbs. Taste is slightly bitter, body is thin, and the finish is a little dry. A solid and refreshing IPA that never really disappoints, but never leaves me wanting more, either. Acquire.

Eh, a hoppier version of fat tire IMHO. New belgium beers all have a certain taste to them where u know you are drinking a new Belgium and sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. Jury is out on this one but all I could think of was a hoppy lager version of fat tire and if decent beer is what you want than this is decent. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Beerhunter111 (8653) - Hasborn, GERMANY - JAN 4, 2015
Ins Glas ergießt sich ein minimal trübes dunkel goldgelbes Bier mit einer ordentlichen weißen Schaumkrone. Geruch sehr fruchtig hopfig, Pfirsisch, Mango, Aprikose. Geschmack sehr fruchtig, ordentlich bitter hopfig, grasig, exotische Früchte, lecker!

Good tasting IPA, not as hoppy as other IPAs. No strong after taste. Goes well with a burger ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

mambossa (33) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - DEC 29, 2014
From bottle. Pours a light-tan/gold. Decent lacing. Caramel pine aroma, very full nose. Earthy-pine with very mild honey malt flavor. Great high-note balance; subtly warm, full, awesome go-to.

Piney goodness, this hop heavy IPA is wonderful. Classic light gold with clingy head. If you’re after an IPA that is light on the malt and heavy on the hop, this is the one for you!
