12.oz bottle poured to tulip. Man-o-man this is such a go to for the IPA lover! This dream pours a light hazy orange and has a thin white quickly dissipating head. The aroma is where the awesomeness of this IPA first shows itself. Itís a fresh hop assault! From barnyard earthiness to pineapple, guava, mango, grapefruit, tangerine and bubblegum..itís in there! There is a whiff of cracker like malt..but this is about the hops! Floral and juicy, fresh citrus and that inherent grounding earthiness. This not a palate wrecker but rather a showcase of hop profiles.
The bitterness is invigorating in play with all of the hop flavors and the subtle malt sweetness. I rave. The carbonation is light and this really is dangerously smooth. This is an accessible and expertly made beer. Enjoy and keep this in your rotation!

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.

Bright gold, small off whit head.
Grapefruit danky nose, tea leaf little eatery with a bit of yogurty sourness.
Nice balance of bitter, medum body with good mouthfeel.
Flavour, hoppy foresty with peach,berry,orange and marmalade.
Interesting, complex, clever, tasty and moorish with a waft of an English style about it.
