22oz bottle poured into nonic. Appearance is clear orange-brown with a two-finger off-white head that settles to a cap. Chunky rings of lace are left on the glass. Aroma is hop-forward: grapefruit, orange, tropical fruit, some herbal notes. The malts contribute bread and caramel sweetness, too. Taste is medium-high bitterness, with citrus peel, pine, and floral flavors. A light sweetness comes through with caramel and biscuit. Medium body, creamy and resinous texture, just a bit more carbonation than average, bitter finish.

Prototypical classic West Coast IPA. All hops, all the time. Pine notes, some grapefruit, some more resin. Good.

BelgianBeerGal (3373) - Panama City, Florida, USA - JUN 23, 2015
Random bottle from the Woodland CA Costco enjoyed in a sweet Hampton Inn paper cup. Golden color with a huge, meringue head that lasted forever. Tons of carbonation so easy with the pour too. Not much aroma escapes the head but what does is straight hoppy resin. Big hoppy flavor but not over-the-top on the bitterness. Enjoyable.

MRodgers1982 (108) - USA - JUN 18, 2015
Massive hop aroma of pine and fresh hops, very fresh. First off big bitter hop start. Fresh hops into it massively. Finishes very clean from Orange clear pour with good head. Been drinking for years and is always excellent.

Christpuncher (1844) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 18, 2015
Very nice west coast ipa. Strong hoops and pine flavored to this one. Pours copper with a nice cream colored head. Absolutely crushable. Had a draft pour at jerrys. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Deep gold, clear. Full body, intense flavors, silky texture, good heat, low carbonation, lingering palate, flavorful finish. Bitter but ample sweet balance. Intensely and beautifully hoppy, complex, resiny, herbal, discrete malt. Everything I look for in an IPA, without being over alcoholic. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

mybrainhurts (374) - North Dakota, USA - JUN 9, 2015
Floral, resinous, fruity aroma. Candied fruits, toffee, golden raisins, and piney flavors. Sharp hoppy finish. A nice brew for sure.

Bomber from whole foods Newport. Golden touch of amber. Nice pine up front. Meets expectation for west coast IPA.

jamaty (1148) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 5, 2015
Miel turbia, muy cremosa en el aspecto al servir. Dos dedos de espuma blanca. Aroma muy potente, apreciable desde lejos. Naranja amarga, pomelo, pino. Flor. En boca gran equilibrio inicial entre una muy rica base acaramelada y el lúpulo floral y frutal (mango y papaya). Dura poco porque pronto casi sólo queda lo segundo, que crece crece y se apodera del paladar hacia un final muy amargo. Utiliza 5 lúpulos americanos, Centennial, Cascade... Gran IPA

KW92 (280) - Warszawa, POLAND - MAY 24, 2015

WYGLĄD: Barwa złota, zamglone. Piana wysoka, drobna, gęsta. Ładnie oblepia szkło.
AROMAT: Mało intensywny. Świeży cytrusowo-owocowy. Owoce to mango. W tle lekkie nuty ziołowe. Przez cały czas obecna jest wada w postaci: siarki.
SMAK: Słodowe, cytrusowo-ziołowe. Goryczka średni -cytrusowa, zalegająca.
OGÓLNIE: W smaku piwo jest O.K. Problem tkwi w aromacie piwa, a ściślej w jego intensywności. Liczyłem tutaj na "potężne uderzenie". Duży plus za świetną pianę. Niestety ewidentna wady w zapachu (mała intensywność oraz siarka) psują ogólny "obraz" piwa.

Unde (550) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAY 22, 2015
Orange beer with nice head and beautiful lacing. Aroma has sweet tropical fruit, pines and citrus hops. Taste has lots of lemon at first, then quite harsh bitterness. Grass and pines at the end. A bit dated bottle so the best edge from the hops has definitely disappeared. Medium body and quite high carbonation.
