COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Dry and floral, with the beautiful aroma of fresh hops and a sublime maltiness from gently roasted barley.

BeerandBlues2 (9693) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - MAY 16, 2014
Bottle at home. Pours lightly hazy amber with a medium, frothy off-white head, medium retention with good lacing. Aroma is biscuit and honey malt, pear and apple esters with spicy, floral, and citrusy hops. Flavor is moderate hops and bitterness with lightly sweet malt, fruity esters and a dry finish. Medium body and carbonation.

nakedwhendrunk (2113) - Juneau, Alaska, USA - MAY 9, 2014
Reviewed from notes. The appearance was a hazy coppery/orange colored body with a slim less than a quarter finger white head that barely coats the top of the body, moderate slightly foamy lacing tries to cling to the glass. The smell had a slightly piney/resin, but malty and all combined through a sort of earthiness. The taste was balanced between the malts and the hops, slight bittersweet aftertaste and a dry finish. On the palate, it sat at/about a medium, and slightly sessionable. Carbonation seems to be adequate for the style and for me, nothing out of the ordinary. Overall, this was a good AIPA that I would have again, nothing spectacular, but nothing bad.

kramer (4960) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 14, 2014
Tap. Pours a mostly clear copper body with a small foamy off-white head that faded to a thin film. The nose is nicely citrusy with some pine resin and moderate caramel malt. The flavor is bitter and aggressive, but not a whole lot of hop flavor. Slightly sweet caramel malt base. A little too sweet for me despite the big bitter finish. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with some clingy resiny hops on the back end that lingers on for ever. Decent, but I could go for a little more hop flavor and a little less bitterness.

Light retention and light lacing. Smells of apricot, hops and sweet malt. Tastes of mango, apricot and hops. Medium bitterness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

badpuppy69 (220) - orange, California, USA - JAN 16, 2014
Pours a hazy copper color with ok soapy head. That thined out pretty fast. Aroma is apricot and a touch of mango. Taste follows the Aroma well with a medium to thin mouth feel. Nothin special but not bad just a bit different and mild. Not much hop characters or malt kinda like drinking a strange fruit juice.

vadie (711) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 23, 2013
Couleur dorée avec une petite mousse blanche. L’arôme et le goût sont d’houblon. Pas très complexe, une bière solide, mais non-remarquable.

harrymel (1502) - Spokane, Washington, USA - DEC 4, 2013
Bottled: unk Pours a honey color with plenty of yeast globs. Broken sheet of light cream foam. Smells like earthy hops, a touch of grapefruit and resin - standard NW style, but sans artistry. Tastes bitter with biscuit and warm malts. Really simple flavor with little left to ponder. Medium bodied with moderate carb and an off-dry finish. Meh. Serving type: bottle 12-21-2012

Floral hop. Deep copper color. Sweet and hoppy flavor. Very well balanced brew. Hops aren’t too overpowering, but u know ur drinking a ipa. Solid brew!

22 oz for 4.99. Pours hazy orange with a small white head. Aroma is malt and piney hops. Taste is similar but subdued; malts coming in at first but then a slight hoppy bitterness at the end. Tastes a little watery actually. Not much flavor in this one. I wasn’t expecting a hop bomb, but I was hoping for more flavor. Just an ok IPA. Body and texture are slightly thinner than I like in an IPA. A mixed bag. Not the worst I have had, but there are far better.
