Pale orange pour with thin head. Excellently balanced subtle bitterness with citrus, lemon & floral aromas & taste. Very smooth & almost sessionable. One of my new favorite IPAs.

adasko (653) - Poznan, POLAND - MAR 28, 2015
Szeroko dostępna w stanach IPA. Jest niezła, ale nie porywa. Średnia goryczka, zbyt wysokie nasycenie, mało intensywny smak.

pintbypint (2757) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 25, 2015
12oz brown bottle. Yellow colour, zome haze. Small soapy white head with minor lacing in the glass. Nose has orange and grapefruit notes with some fruitiness. Flavours of sweet and fruity malts with citrus hops notes. Aftertaste has mild orange peel and grapefruit notes. Lightish body with a mild mouthfeel. Low bitterness. Ok.

notayankee (21) - Arkansas, USA - MAR 25, 2015
Bottle pour into goblet. Half inch head dissipated rapidly leaving behind slight lacing. Color is golden and it’s pretty clear, only slightly hazy. Light hop aroma matches the taste, some hops and citrus. Some bitterness to the finish, pleasantly clean and there is a bit of maltiness to the aftertaste. Body is light for an IPA, but not watery. Carbonation is pretty soft and not visible after the head settles. This is a solid, versatile beer as the brewer’s description suggests. This would be a decent choice for summer beer.

Bottle - unable to pour out of bottle to see, but big grapefruit hop aroma and flavor, pretty fair malt backbone, mildly dry bitter finish, good IPA overall ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ttroha (397) - Americus, Georgia, USA - MAR 8, 2015
Bottle from the fridge. Pours transparent gold with white head. Aroma is light grassy hop, light toasted malt,and citrus. Flavor is only slightly hoppy, malty and a bit of biscuit. Lots of carbonation. Not very hoppy for an IPA. Could’ve been better.

AdamJackson (3261) - Enfield, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 1, 2015
Dark gold color. a rarely recent 375ML bottling. 1 finger head that fades to nothing. Smells like hay, some copper pennies and pine oil. Taste is very thin, weak, some penny, wheat, copper, pine oil finish. The finish is a bit like jalapeño peppers and more pine cones.

sonotono (55) - torino, ITALY - FEB 28, 2015
Bott. 35.5cl. Colore dorato. Aroma molto forte, citrico, pompelmo, erbaceo e floreale. Sapore che conferma l’aroma, amaro subito e molto amaro nel finale, lungo. Corpo leggero.

Aggiebob (116) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - FEB 22, 2015
Bottle poured into a shaker glass. Clear golden yellow with a small white head and lots of carbonation. Light hop aroma and a lightly hopped bitter taste that finishes dry and clean. Ok, but I expected more of an IPA than a pale ale given its name.

Birra molto buona, appena si apre si sente il cascade in dry hopping. Schiuma persistente un buon amaro e bel colore. Consigliata per l’estate ;)
