Tap. Nice copper color with pillowy white lasting head and lots of lacing. Smells nice and refreshing of pine, grapefruit,and caramel. Tastes a little off- popcorn and dirty. Then settles in to a dry and lightly bitter finish. As you drink it hops take over and the funny taste fades.

trapped (1306) - New York, TURKEY - JUN 8, 2015
Draught. Hazy pale yellow with small foamy off-white head, floral hops aroma, medium carbonation, grassy hoppy taste, abrupt finish. Not bad for an IPA.

bytemesis (4468) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - MAY 28, 2015
Bottle thanks to Brian. Pours clear orange, medium off-white head, dissipates fairly slowly, good lacing. Aroma is caramel, pine, citrus, grapefruit, passionfruit. Flavor is light sweet, light plus bitter, pine, dank, passionfruit. Light body; a bit sharp on the palate but otherwise a perfectly fine example of a mainstream IPA.

Oscbert (1130) - Sacramento, California, USA - APR 30, 2015
Pungent hop aroma of orange, pine and floral notes. Pours a hazy golden orange color with small white head. Pungent hop flavor. Very piney and woody, with orange and floral notes. Biscuity malts. Medium bodied with medium CO2, woody lingering hop finish. Enjoyable IPA. Pungent and interesting. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

r464 (2034) - Earth, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 29, 2015
Very dry, piney and earthy. Hops, but not floral. A bit of grapefruit and other citrus like flavors at the start, then a long trailing finish. Not bad, not great.

Fatehunter (1642) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - APR 11, 2015
Pours a finger and half of head on a clear straw body. The aroma is grain, lemon and pine. Nice. The taste is moderately bitter to start, malty middle and finishes with a long pine and grapefruit bitterness. The texture is crisp. A nice IPA.

Belgrave (30) - Truro, Nova Scotia, CANADA - APR 7, 2015
Golden colour, off-white head. Piney, floral & a bit fruit aroma. Taste follows suit. Something falls short...unimpressed.

On tap at the hotel bar in Augusta. Big hop aroma with light bready caramel. Bracing hop bitterness. Old school.

Forgettable. It’s not bad; it’s just has nothing that stands out. It’s a really safe ipa. The aroma is somewhat citrusy and faintly grassy (would have liked a little more kick here). Taste is cirtus and some grapefruit notes with a sufficient malt deliver (would have liked something to shine a little here). Finish is not lighter on the bitter side with a mild hop element. I just was hoping that at 7.1% it would shine it some area, but I’m just not seeing it. Overall, not bad and pretty good while you’re drinking it; however, the forgettable quality lingers...kind of like the movie The Negotiator.
