Beerandhockey8 (232) - Three Forks, Montana, USA - APR 13, 2014
From 22oz bottle to shaker. Pour is a hazy orange yellow, with a thick white head. Nose is big hops, floral, citrus, earthy, piney. Taste is very balanced, mix of bitter ans sweet with a light-medium body. For such a big ABV, impressive IPA. Finishessharp, very drinkable and balanced which could be dangerous.

An enticing aroma is followed by a full bodied well balanced taste - with just a hint of alcohol to keep you warm.

Beer has a hazy copper color with a slightly tanned head. Malty aroma with caramel and honey. Taste has some bitterness with caramel malts to balance it out. There is also a touch of pine on the finish.

It was interesting to try all these hops together in one beer. Very nice hoppy aroma and a fully bitter taste. Very enjoyable.

Hoppy, but still kind of subdued. All of the hops blend nicely, slightly spicy notes, tingly palate. Pine aroma, slight lingering hop palate.

Transfer from BA review on 4-16-14- Served on tap in a pint glass Appearance – The beer pours a very lightly hazed orange amber color with a small head of just of white foam. The head has only a light level of retention, fading rather quickly to leave a good level of foamy lace on the sides of the glass. Smell – The aroma of the beer is on the lighter side overall with it consisting mainly of a sweeter fruit nature of tropical fruits and melon mixed with some aromas of grapefruit and a doughty like smell. Mixed with these aromas are some other very light smells of a grassy and hay-like smell. Taste – The taste begins a nice smooth bready flavor with tons of tropical fruit flavors of tangerine, pineapple, mango and papaya. Along with these flavors are some lighter hints of caramel as well as a rather nice showing of a grapefruit hop flavor. The sweeter tropical fruit flavors, as well as the grapefruit create a strong base flavor for the brew, lasting throughout the taste, with both just increasing a little bit as the taste advances to the end. The bready and caramel flavors fade as the taste advances however, allowing the grapefruit and fruit to show themselves a bit more as the taste moves to the end. With all these transitions that take place during the taste profile, there is also a coming of a lighter earthy and grassy hop flavor, which in the end, when combined with the fruity and grapefruit hop flavors, leaves a very pleasantly sweet and hopped taste to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the thicker and chewier side with a carbonation level that is on the lower side. The lower carbonation level really accentuates the tropical fruit and grapefruit hop flavors really allowing their melody to shine through. This melody was only accentuated by the thicker feel of the brew, which made for one mouth coating experience. Overall – A rather tasty IPA overall. A bit on the sweeter side, but very easy drinking and highly enjoyable. This is on to try if you see it on tap.

Nice golden color with white head. Good hop aroma with piney/citrus essence. Light bodied with mellow malt flavor. Nice hop throughout with good ammount of bittering, some flavor, and some late addition aroma hopping evident in this brew.

tomekk1978 (505) - POLAND - OCT 15, 2014
Barwa: złota, delikatnie zmętniona (po dolaniu zdecydowanie bardziej). Piana biała, drobno pęcherzykowa, średniej wielkości, dość szybko opadająca, ale ładnie oblepiająca szkło. Aromat: początkowo głównie słodowy (karmelowo- herbatnikowy) oraz (o dziwo) landrynkowy. Na szczęście zaraz wkracza również chmiel, a z nim cała paleta owoców (m.in. melon, agrest, gruszka) oraz nuty ziołowe. Dodatkowo lekka nuta alkoholowa. Smak: słodowy (j.w.), dość pełny, ale umiarkowanie słodki. Występuje wyraźna chmielowa kontra z orzeźwiającą, owocową goryczką. Jest ona jednak z pewnością niższa niż podaje producent.
