UDBeernut (1671) - Moving to Jax, Florida, USA - FEB 23, 2013
Bomber pours golden. Pretty much everything a west cast ipa is and should ever be. Great golden hue, lasting head, sticky lacing. Cutting bitterness. Solid pine, citrus nose and taste. Medium body but easily drinkable.

This is simply the most perfect IPA and my favourite #1 so far! Perfect appearance, feeling and taste (which stays long!). Enough excitement but no gimmicks in this taste. Citrus and pine, very nice aftertaste too.

HopsHipster (40) - Aarhus, DENMARK - AUG 22, 2014
Lidt mild men samtidig dejlig frisk og let IPA, som man nemt kan drikke mere end én af. En mere markant og bitter eftersmag savnes dog. [APK: 6.96]

Muggus69 (1171) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - AUG 22, 2014
640mL bottle Bottled 3/12/14 Pours a pale golden body, lightly hazy, with a big pillowy white head foaming up and hanging around. Hop aroma bursts from the glass - lots of freshly cut grass, passionfruit & guava, pine needle & sap, orange & grapefruit, with a hint biscuity pale malt underneath. Lively carbonation, maybe a touch over-the-top, body is surprisingly lean for a relatively big beer, deceptive, in a good way. Hops aplenty on the palate; once again, lots of grass, woody spice, grapefruit rind, orange sherbert, leafy herbs. Bitterness is high, finish is dry, lingering citrus & spice. A good IPA. Lacking a bit in the malt department, but overall very decent.

Hazy orange with white head. Aroma is hippy funk. Close to weed. Taste follows nose with a beautiful short bitter bite. Nice.

kevinsenn (1058) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 10, 2014
Bottle. Pours clear amber with foamy head. Juicy fruit punch aroma. Taste is sweet up front, with light malty bread notes, then citrus and tropical fruits, and finally a bitter dry finish. Medium body. Very nice IPA.

Transfer from BA review on 9-16-12- Served on tap in a pint glass Appearance – The beer was served a hazy amber color with a two finger white head. The head faded over a moderate amount of time to give a decent level of lacing. Smell – The aroma is a nice blend of sweet fruit and hop. It has a pineapple and mango aroma mixed with a very good dose of grapefruit and tangerine citrus hop. While the citrus hop aromas are strongest, there are notes of a nice pine and floral hop as well. With these hop and fruit flavors is also a good dose of yeast. Overall the smell is quite tasty. Taste – The taste begins with a nice bready and sweet tropical fruit flavor with notes of a pine and earthy hop. These hop flavors then get stronger as citrus hop flavors of a tangerine, lemon and grapefruit flavor come to the tongue. When the citrus arrives, a sweetness also comes to the tongue creating a sweeter hopped up taste. As the taste advances to the end, some to the sweetness fades with the hop remaining constant, which in the end of the taste results in a nice semi-sweet hop bite on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the average to slightly above average side in terms of both body thickness as well as carbonation. The carbonation may have been a tad too high for the hoppy flavors (although it was nice for the fruit flavors of the brew). The carbonation level did however, make for one pretty easy drinking brew, giving overall a nice feel to the beer. Overall – A nice IPA with a nice fruit and hop blend. Not too sweet or bitter but balanced fairly well.
