Amber with small head and fair lacings. Floral piney hop nose. Taste is piney grapefruit hops and the malts lend a touch of pineapple that gives this a unique flavor. A very nice IPA as the hops are plentiful but not overwhelming. Nice long bitter-sweet finish. Will be seeing more of this beauty.

Very clear dark amber color. Didnt think it was an IPA at first glance. Great hop flavor. Best finish of an IPA I’ve ever had. Love this beer

Bottle: Pours a hazy amber color, nice white head and great lacing. The nose is grassy and fragrant, plenty of pine and orange in the nose. Ample caramel notes with a nice malty body never taking the focus off of the hops. Not bitter in the tail, more balanced towards the piney dry hops. Balanced and yummy. A little citronella note in the tail, which isn’t my favorite as far as hop notes.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
650 ml bottle. Hazy amber body with a firm off/white head. Aroma of sweet malt, grassy/floral hops and grapefruit. Flavor is sweet malty and quite bitter with grapefruit. Bitter finish. Relativly straight forward, no nonsense double IPA, but well made. Refreshing.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Cloudy straw body with a big, soft white head. Smooth biscuity malt backbone with a very nice, rich, deep floral hop character. Just a touch of the great IPA mainstays; grapefruit, pine, grass etc... which are very well balanced by the rich malt base.

Really good. Think of TG’s IPA on some sort of hop crack. From a 22 and you are good for the evening.

Nice IPA. Super bright and floral with intense pine resin notes. Deep golden, but clear, filtered. Nice citrus. Easy to drink, not to hot or heavy.

Draft. A hazy amber beer with a thick orangey head. The aroma is sweet with strong notes of grass as well as lighter notes of citrus. The flavor is sweet malty with strong notes of grass, leading to a dry and very bitter finish.
