Nice hoppy aroma. No real head on the draft pour, nice legs, clear golden color. Nice simple ipa. Not a big beer but you could have a couple of them

Bottle. Gold with a large white head. Aroma of lemon, herbs, boiled lollies, biscuit. Sweet biscuit, boiled oranges, pithy lemon, pine. Bitter, astringent finish. Crude.

DuchessOfIowa (99) - Iowa, USA - NOV 17, 2015
Poured from a bottle. Level of aggressiveness is low with pine, citrus, and slight hints of herbal and earthy dankiness. Light golden and copper hue with thin white head that leaves little lacing. Biscuit maltiness with a mild sweet quality that makes it very easy to drink. Sometimes we forget the simpler things in west coast comparison to slam the palate. Nothing wrong with that.

On tap at Bell, Book & Candle, in NYC. Pours a cloudy golden colour with a small white head. Aroma is hops. Taste is light citrus, floral and herbal. Nothing special.

Clear orange - reddish beer, with a clear head, the aroma is strong in hops, with some floral, citrus, herbs and pine notes, citrus, herbs. When is tasted it has a light sweetness, medium bitterness, medium body with some malt flavors and a really hoppy flavor

ciocanelu (365) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - OCT 10, 2015
Slightly hazy golden color with white head. Aroma has some fruity, tropical hops and some butter biscuits. Taste is balanced, you get the hops and also the malts. Aftertaste gets quite bitter. Quite watery for 6.2% abv but overall it’s a decent IPA.

rafax (13) - POLAND - OCT 7, 2015
Bottle. Nice, not very strong, citrus, malt, pine aroma. Clear, gold appearance with pretty nice lacing. Taste is good, light, little bit sweet. Nothing very special but very drinkable.

bigda83 (572) - Jamestown, New York, USA - SEP 28, 2015
Draft. Not a lot to choose from for the craft guy, so I had to try this one. Poured a clear dark yellow with small white head. Aroma was very faint to me, but it was an open top glass, so that could add to it. Light citrus and herbal notes on the nose. Flavor was decent with citrus, mainly lemon, herbal, some grass notes. Body was light, texture was thin, carbonation was average. Finish was quick and smooth. Ok, but nothing I’d seek out.

preamble (1) - - SEP 26, 2015 does not count
Nothing special to the eastern beer drinker that loves west-coast style IPA
