COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This one's a beauty; a rich and full bodied India Pale Ale with complex malt character blended with cascade and noble hops. The end result is a beer that satisfies the "hop head" out there and won't chase away the newcomer. Drink it. It's good.

Can sent to me via mystery swap 2.0. Thanks! Pours dark amber in color with a light tan head. Smell is a little bit of a caramel and toffee fragrance, with a hint of a citrus background. Taste is a bit more on the piney, earthy side than the smell leads on. I also notice a hint of a lemon zest flavor coming through in the background. As the commercial description says, this satisfies me, a hop head, but I think it would be a good beer for a newby or wannabe hop head. A decent beer, in a can.

Draft. Some pine resin on the nose. Flavors are a teeny bit sweet, orange and honey, subdued by a big but indistinct malt bill. A tick better than standard.

Big resin with a bit of citrus, easy going malt body which represents the hops well, solid IPA/Pale Ale

Also got this as an extra in a trade. This one was much more enjoyable. Very hazy body. Nice fruity pine aroma. Big bitter resin bite with hints of citrus.

Pour out of 12 oz can, clear golden orange pour with white head, aroma brought notes of orange, lemon, slight pine, grass, touch of spice, some slight pineapple. Taste was a mix of orange, pine, slight lemon and spice notes into a bit of earth, bread, some slight herbal notes, finishing fairly bitter. Pretty simple, but tasty nonetheless.

Pint on tap at the hotel in Oxford, CT. Mostly clear golden orange color. Thin off-white head. Leaves good ridges of lace. Medium-plus body. Smooth, crisp lighter carbonation. Light slick. Piney, citrusy hop, a nice amount of it. Moderate bitter, lighter sweet. Satisfying, swiggable IPA.

Nice IPA with a golden color and a tart tangy taste, no bad aftertaste to detract from the crisp clean taste ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Extra from trade. Floral and pefumey. Light bitter. Not bad, not super exciting either.

Nice, balance IPA, with a prominent citrus / tropical hop flavor. Not overly sweet, though it does have a pretty nice malt body that is clean, and neutral and allows the hops to shine.
