Strong aroma of citrusy hops. Smells malty but really isnít in the flavor. Smooth and mildly coating when it goes down. Canít taste the 7% at all. Really nice IPA, canít believe it took me so long to try this one.

Solid IPA. Pours a coppery orange, hardly any head, bit of lacing. Very subtle malty aromas. Malty, nice grapefruit and other citrus flavors, not as bitter as I would have expected (you might call it halfway between pale ale and IPA, with tons of flavor). Crisp, slightly oily, very refreshing. This is the kind of beer that I could drink all day long.

Pleasant aroma of brown sugar and pine. Standard appearance, almost like a pilsner, light for an ipa. Refreshing taste, hoppy enough but extremely drinkable. Good malt background that is not overpowering. This could become a go to for me.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma of caramelized toffee malt, honey and citrus herb hops. Appearance is hazy golden orange color with a large, puffy, lasting, off white head. The flavor delivers exactly what the aroma presented along with nice floral, herbal tea and a touch of pine in the finish. Medium body and silky texture. This is a really great IPA that reminds me of the IPA days before all of the citrusy "super" hops.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap. Pours. Hazy golden with a big, foamy white head. Aroma is of hops, tropical fruit, pine, and biscuit malt. Smells good. Taste is of mildly bitter hops with lots of tropical fruit. A lot of pine in there as well. Has a very biscuity. Malt backbone. Lingering hop burn. Drinks really easy, and has a lot of carbonation. I could drink quite a few of these.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft. Pale orange in colour with medium carbonation. Aromas are of florals and white grapefruit, along with a bit of pale malt. Balanced flavors of grapefruit, toasted grain, and pine cone. Lighter bodied than expected with a clean bitterness. Definitely lighter and less resin-y than old school IPAs, but without the tropical notes of the newer school ones. Very solid overall.
