Hazy orange-gold, big long-lasting white head. Huge citrus and resin aroma, with an enigmatic fruitiness. Again, beguiling fruits on the palate-- the usual citrus pith, but also melon, passionfruit, guava.... Nice smooth malt structure in perfect balance. Outstanding!

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle, 0.65l, shared with Hoppiness crew. Hazy amber color with thick creamy off white head and great lacing. Pungent aroma of citrus, pine and pineapple. Taste starts refreshing fruity, follows sweet resinous with heavy bitter finish and neverending aftertaste. Full body, oily texture and lively carbonation in palate. Just excellent...

I love this beer! Rich aroma with a fruity taste and a long bitter finish. My kind of a West coast IPA. Excellent.

Bottle bought from Port/Lost Abbey and brought home in my suitcase. Pours a clear golden orange, fluffy white head that dies gradually. Huge fruity and resinous hop aromas, orange, grapefruit, pine, mandarin. Tastes moderate sweet then big resinous bitterness, some floral perfumed notes, again pine and citrus. Medium body, oily, moderate carbonation, lasting aromatic bitterness. Textbook West Coast IPA, this is very much as good as hoped. As someone below said, it’s not complex but when it does what it does so well, who cares?

Tapp på Bonaventure brewery. Grumligt rödbrun. Fruktig doft med inslag av persika och aprikos. Smaken är mindre fruktig med mycket beska.

Draught @ Mikkeller, SF.
Hazy orange, fine white head. Hop front, left, right and centre! Modest fruit tones. My wheelhouse, but bit one-dimensional.

I should have wrote this review earlier as now after 22 oz the bottle @ 7.5% about all I remember is that it was quite good!

Pour is a hazy pale orange with small bit of white head. Beautiful fruity aroma with banana and grapefruit. The hops and bitterness are piercing right from the start. Lots of tropical fruit like passion fruit with a bitter grassy aftertaste. A great brew.
