Slightly hazy straw gold pour with a tall, creamy, off white head that has great retention and leaves nice lacing. Aroma is big on tangy, citrus, pine, some spicy hops, floral and a little dankness, caramel, cereal and light biscuit. Flavor is sweet orange and grapefruit, some pine, some floral, nice honey sweetness, a little tropical fruit, cereal, biscuit, yeasty white bread, caramel and some nice lingering grapefruit, pine and mineral notes to the finish. Fantastic mouthfeel, fairly light body, with a full, creamy feel, fairly light, but blanketing and pefectly sharp carbonation and an almost neutral off dry finish that still carries just enough of the creaminess to make this smooth all the way through without a hint of astringency. Really awesome, the body is what really sells it for me though.

Une belle couleur orange/dorée, et une mousse discrète. La carbonation est soutenue, avec de petites bulles. le nez met particulièrement en valeur le citron, et d’autres touches d’agrume plus discètes. Le houblon frais apporte un plus indéniable. Une fois en bouche, c’est une explosion de citron, d’orange et d’un peu de grapefruit, avec une impression de pin due aux houblons frais. Un produit vraiment rafraîchissant et intéressant

Transfer from BA review on 3-30-12 - Served in a 10 oz chalice glass Appearance – The body is a lighter golden color with a little bit of haze. Upon serving it had a light white heat that faded very slowly over time, giving way to a moderate amount of lacing. Smell – The smell was largely grapefruit and pine hop in nature. A bit of bready maltiness was also detected in the nose but it was quite light. Taste – The taste was of citrus and pine hops up front and was mixed with a more biscuit backbone. Some earthy hop tastes work their way into the flavor more toward the middle. Toward the end the earthiness fades way to a great deal of bitter pine and citrus (mainly of grapefruit flavor). This flavor is very potent and leaves it mark on the tongue long after is gone from the mouth. Mouthfeel – Medium bodied with an average level of carbonation. Rather normal and nothing special. Overall - I was not too impressed with the beer overall. I think there are much more affordable IPA’s of similar stature that actually have a better flavor profile as this one leaves a little too much of the grapefruit citrus hop flavor on the tongue.

Tasty IPA. With that nice strong taste of hops that American brewers can do so well. Good one.

Clear orange body with an average white head. Fruity citrus, grapefruit, peach, caramel. Sweet taste with medium bitterness. Aftertaste is more bitter. Very light and refreshing. Maybe not bitter enough for an IPA but personally I prefer it.
