January 2012. Bottle while in MN. Amber color with a white head. Nice aromas of hops, citrus and pine. A tad bland, but still with some strong bones and character.

Good aroma with considerable caramel-hop balance. Less enjoyable flavor in which the grassy hops soon overwhelm the core flavors. But ok anyway. Surprising abv. Bottle.

Overall, decent IPA, the aroma is a little boring and taste lacks some elements. I think it should be more balanced and it would be considered a better beer. Overall, decent for the IPA variety but still needs some work.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Super hazy apricot coloured body with a bit of an orange glow and a thick, six centimetre tall tan head - very nice. Aroma of grassy and very citrus-based hops with some yeast notes, a little sweetness and some more grass. Medium-bodied; Good balance of malt, yeast and hops in the flavour with a lot of emphasis on lighter and more soapy malts. Aftertaste shows some citrus hop notes, a little hop pellet flavour and a hint of a spicey yeast strain. Overall, a decent IPA, perhaps a bit past it’s prime, but showing some good characteristics and then a few not-so-good. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Ridgeview Liqour in Green Bay, Wisconsin on 29-July-2012 for US$1.89 sampled at home in Washington on 18-February-2013.

Great, classic IPA. Balanced hops provide the traditional bite without the brutal over hopping that is becoming the mainstay of the style. Read the other reviews for specifics, I’ll only be repeating what’s already been said. Very drinkable IPA form someone who’s not typically a fan.

Color is mahogany/rust. Lots of carbonation and generous head. Lots of particles floating after pour. Typical IPA aromas of citrus & hops. Tasty, bitter, hops & grapefruit flavors.

Draft. Hazy orange, slight lacing. Grapefruit orange pine aroma. Big big hop flavor. Did I mention a lot of hops?
