Bottle. Pours murky orange with thin white head that lingers. Nice hop aroma over light carbonation. Hop forward but limited complexity.

Bottle from a trade. Thanks Wyatt! Orange cloudy colour, white foam. Medium carbonation. Aroma of flowers, honey and passion fruit. Light sweet, bitter hoppy finish. Well balanced and easy drinkable. Good IPA!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
From draft, very full creamy head. Orange Amber appearance. The look of this beer is tops. Hoppy, not quite Pliney level but a full hoppy balanced beer.

solid IPA. One of the few where the aroma is better than the taste. If you are somewhere that has Russian River, get a Pliny instead. this is very good just not as great as the Pliny.

(bottle) slightly hazy deep golden colour with a frothy off-white head. aroma of heavy resin and some caramel, with some hints of green tea, grapes, some gooseberries, cherries and vanilla. flavour is mostly caramel and gooseberries, with more vanilla, herbal hops, a light hint of alcohol, some buttered pale malts and a light-bitter citric finish. medium- to heavy-bodied with average carbonation.

Draft pour at Belmont Station. Pours a golden color with a foamy consistent head throughout. Really piney aroma. Piney bitter hops throughout. A bit of grapefruit as well. My mind isn’t blown here, but this is a solid IPA overall. Enjoyed this.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Let’s start with the good/great: big hops that are fruity and pine. A bit of soap,slick oily mouth feel, a dry finish, and very easy drinking. Orange in color with sticky white head. Would have liked it to be a bit bigger, because it would be the perfect IPA then . However, this is still a damn fine one as it stands.

GABF week, 2014. I think I had this at Falling Rock. Big, fresh hop aroma and flavor. Lots of bitter hops; citrus and pine; giving this beer intense flavor; and light malt sweetness. Excellent.
