This beer gets better everytime I buy it. Big citrus hop aroma. Pours a cloudy orange with a huge, thick, frothy head. Amazing balance of citrus and pine hop flavor, that is balanced just enough to make this an incredibly drinkable IPA. Think lacing... so thick that my 16oz glass needed to be rinsed to pour the rest of the bomber. Maybe my favorite 1x IPA, even tough I rated AleSmith IPA higher.

Harmony of a hop. The wonderful beer a poise sense is also though it's the showy taste the west coast.

Wittales (678) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - FEB 19, 2015
Appearance was cloudy orangish gold with lasting whitish creamy 2 finger head, loads of lacing. Aromas are citrus, pine , Corrinder orange marlande, no alcohol. Taste are grapefruit, orange, lemon, tangelo, pine, lime bitter peal with soft sweet malt backing. Palate was creamy smooth CO2 with medium body, then lasting citrusy clean sticky finish. Overall a beautiful west coast ipa.

Bacterial (1828) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - FEB 15, 2015
Hazy light amber pour from a bomber for $4. This really feels like the quintessential West Coast IPA. Could smell the hops from the moment it was cracked open. Resin, pine, citrus. Appears to be bottle conditioned - interesting! Perhaps the yeast are carrying some of the intense hop character? Fluffy white head with a ton of lacing. Very nice.

Strong out of the gate with a less than stellar finish. Hop forward but finishes with random tastes falling off from the hop start. That was redundant but each drink is too. Good not great. Bottle. SoCal. Costco. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

javiercrasher (195) - Granada, SPAIN - FEB 13, 2015
De color suavemente anaranjado. Soberbia capa de espuma blanca que no desaparece. Aroma a resina, pino y piŮa. Cuerpo medio. En boca entra con un punto dulce, pero pronto hace presencia el lķpulo. Herbal y resinosa. Alcohol bien integrado y final seco y amargo. Cervezůn!!

thehinge (273) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - FEB 11, 2015
Very nice IPA. Lemony, bitter on the front end and just a bit of hops in the aftertaste. Among the best of the style that Iíve sampled.

suurjuust (1361) - ESTONIA - FEB 3, 2015
Clear golden, white head. Nose is grassy hops, peaches, pineapple, malts and caramel, mild sweet hints. Flavor is malts, caramel, pine, peaches, a firm bitterness in the finish. Lingering hoppy bitterness after the medium long finish. Probably would be better fresh, still itís pretty good. Bottle shared by martjoobolut, thanks!

martjoobolut (1129) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - FEB 3, 2015
Bottle (from Koht, Tallinn). Pours golden with off-white head. The head stays. Aroma is grass, tropical fruits, mango, caramel, sweetness. Flavor is sweet and bitter, grass, tropical fruits, mango, citrus. Finish is fruity citrus bitter. Overall: good brew. I guess fresher bottle would be better (didnít find BB, but I assume itís at least 3 months old, havenít seen fresher American stuff here).
