Another american grapefruit IPA. The aroma is all citrus. The color is quite fantastic, this is the exact shade I want my IPAís. The centennial hit the front of the tongue, the malt sticks to the middle, and the bitterness lingers towards the back. An above average IPA.

wchesser (1517) - Denver, Colorado, USA - SEP 1, 2015
Light copper color. Great hoppy nose with nice pine, citrus, and floral elements, some sweet caramel. Taste follows, a bit malty for me, but not over the top.

AWISLguy (1827) - Wisconsin, USA - AUG 31, 2015
Bottle from Brook Falls Discount - how have I not rated before? Orangey pour with a ring of a white head leaving some spotty lace. Aroma has floral hops, light fruits and pine. Taste is of sweet caramel, some pine and some fruitiness. Medium bodied without much alcohol presence. Perhaps a touch lowly carbonated. Finishes heavily to the sweet side of bittersweet. Shrug? Have had over the years many times, and between Founders Centennial and this one, these bigger SW Mich brewers need to get a good West Coast IPA. Centennial is solid and old-style, but not made for an IPA in this century. 13.2

Mad_Ferret (764) - SWEDEN - AUG 28, 2015
Bottle from SB. Golden colour, just a slight slight haze, medium white frothy head. Sweet hoppy aroma with honey caramel and flowers, peach, mango, pine, cookies and some alcohol warmth. Taste is also honey sweet and hoppy with vanilla crackers, citrus, peach, mango and pine needles. Itís pretty balanced and drinkable, despite some alcohol bite and heavy bitterness. Medium to bigger body, soft carb, oily texture. Nice. I like it. Well executed and quite drinkable.

Scopey (9384) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 24, 2015
Bottle at GBBF 2015. Cheers James. It pours lightly hazy amber with a decent white head. The nose is bitter-sweet, toasted grass, grapefruit, creaminess and custard apple. The taste is crisp, bitter, earthy, toasted grass, cereal, minerals, grapefruit, floral and light spice with a dry finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Crisp and easy-going. Comes together quite nicely.

GBBF Day 1. Bottle share. Thank you whoever opened this. Hazy amber beer, good cream colour head. Palate is light and airy with good fine carbonation. Sweetish malts, some caramel - toffee. Lovely peach and mango, hop spice accentuated. Resinous orange and tropical fruits. More hop spice on the smooth finish. Rather lovely.

demannu (209) - New Jersey, USA - JUL 31, 2015
Crisp fresh taste, not overly bitter. Light refreshing body. Dry finish, long lingering bitter aftertaste. Mixed hop aroma of floral and pine. Drinkable but i prefer the tasmanian version.

trapped (1441) - New York, TURKEY - JUN 3, 2015
Draught @ Ginger Man. Slightly hazy dark orange with small off-white creamy head, faint floral hops aroma, medium carbonation, slightly watery hoppy taste, floral flavor remaining after a longish finish. Nice though a bit watery.

Pours a medium amber color with off-white head. Floral notes and some citrusy pine on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes smooth for an IPA.
