RedSox2004 (1228) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - AUG 15, 2014
Clear gold with a stony bright white head, nice retention and excellent lace. Clean sharp citrus aromas with a touch of pine and bready malt. Crisp hop bitterness, flavors of grapefruit, tangerine, lime, slightly offset by a mild caramel sweetness. Medium body, moderate carbonation, creamy mouthfeel and a clean finish.

Solid if indistinguishable from the many other great IPAs out there. <soapbox> Unless you have the palette of a connoisseur, and 9 out of 10 self-proclaimed connoisseurs do not, the plethora of great IPAs is an embarrassment of riches. I think many brewers would be well served to branch out into distinguishing brews -- twists on IPAs no less. </soapbox>

fiulijn (14380) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 2, 2014
Bottle from Fred Meyer, Seattle
Hazy golden color with medium head. Nice aroma, toffee, gently toasted malts, some cereals, hay, and obviously hops, lightly musky. Nice mouthfeel, dry and lean; the malt profile is good and doesn’t cover the hop, with toffee, some cereals, hint of caramel; strong bitterness, quite piney and resiny, just lightly fruity, with some cedar peel.
Enjoyable.

Ferris (3785) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 27, 2014
Bottle - Nice fresh grapefruit. Clear gold with a decent white head. Bitter resin and some pithy grapefruit. Big bright but nice bitterness throughout and into finish.

Handypaul (196) - - JUN 7, 2014
Bottle. Pours clear yellow with a minimal head that leaves good lacing. Nose of pine, honey and faint citrus. Medium to heavy bitter, lightly sweet, lively carbonation, light to medium body, flavors of grapefruit and bread leading to a long finish that’s a combo of sticky sweet to start and then bitter into the far finish.

CapFlu (4493) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 6, 2014
Lasting frothy off-white head atop clear, lightly carbonTed golden body. Nose of lemon rind and slight pepper. Very citrus, strong orange flavours. Somewhat oily and bitter through the finish. Good.

pinkie (457) - New York, USA - JUN 2, 2014
Pours with plenty of particles floating so hazy and with a fat fluffy head of bone white foam that leaves good lacing. Nose is sweet floral, a bit of citrus, and some tropical fruit like pineapple. Whiff fo alcohol on the nose. The malt promises to be there with a touch of honey and a bit of bread on the nose. Some light sweet herbal and a light sweet earthiness too. taste is very nice. It has a bit of weight to the mouthfeel from malt and some fruity and floral hops. The tropical sweetness meets a bit of earthy grapefruit rind and the hops finish it with a firm bitter. In the drink the malt has a presence and a bit of weight to it. As the beer warms it smells like fruit punch and drinks lovely. It’s a bit peppery in the finish which is so unique for an IPA.
