It poured a light brown color with an off-white head. The aroma was of herbal hops, citrus and pine. The taste was of moderate hop bitterness, caramel and grains. Nice.

on tap at ABQ Brewpub; amber color; citrusy, floral hop aroma; a fairly light bodied IPA with floral, citrusy hop flavor on a dry, bready malt base

maltman53 (386) - Corrales, New Mexico, USA - JUL 10, 2014
Some nice flavors coming through, but overall, a totally out of balance beer: too much malt and too little hops coming through.

rumproasts (3232) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - APR 3, 2014
bottle. Amber with small head. Medium malt body. Rather bland, flat hops. Below average IPA.

Erzengel (3553) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - MAR 14, 2014
Dark golden and hazy in the glass. The nose is floral and grainy. The beer starts rough, unround. The mainpart is sharp, floral hop aroma together with a sharp maltiness and bitterness. Not really fitting. The aftertaste is sharp, not really well balanced and sharp-floral-bitter.
Not one of my favourite IPAs. --> 7/10/6/7

5000 (6299) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JAN 7, 2014
Bottle:   Dull golden, a little darker with an orange hue, small sudsy white head, little lacing.   Very soft spruce or pine like foresty aroma.   Not much else.   Watery hop flavor profile, barely even a Pale Ale by most PNW standards.   Very little citrus peel and pith emerges as it warms, but too little too late.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Soft pith and peel linger, and I mean soft.   Snoozer...

rosenbergh (7399) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 16, 2013
12 oz bottle. (Midtown Liquor) Tulsa, OK.
Clear amber colour with a tiny white head. Fruits, grapefruit and pine in the aroma. Hoppy I mean. Mild and a bit sweet bitterness. Smooth. The flavour is hoppy... dark and... there’s chlorine... like swimming pool water. Bitterness is more than light. Hmm... drinkable.

chacobella (49) - Colorado, USA - JUN 28, 2013
Grapefruit aroma and taste with pine with an extremely desert dry finish. Very similar to sumpin sumpin but without the body or palate.
