Tasted from draft. Pours a murky orange with white head. Aroma is complex with notes of citrus and tropical fruits predominant. Taste is incredibly balanced. Flavors of orange, grapefruit, caramel, toffee, pine, tropical fruits. Very well done IPA.

Apricot unfiltered color. Piney cat litter nose. Great lacing - white cream head. Thick mouthfeel. Not too balanced, overwhelming pine hop profile. Long finish.

Super hazy orange. 1 finger creamy head. Nose is tangerine and grapefruit. Very juicy. I can smell the resin though. Lots of resin. Piney bomb but really refined. The mouthfeel is incredible. Has a bit of soap at the finish.

On draft at SARA. Golden, hazy pour. Aroma is tropical hops, danky, and fruity. Citra mostly? Grassy, tropical and orange hop flavors followed by a hop bitterness. A touch thin and undercarbonated (seems to be a theme here) with a touch of pepper and alcohol.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
In short: A very-hop-forward citrusy blonde IPA with a very assertive bitterness. Good Beer.
How: Growler shared at pre-HFFoFA 2013 tasting.
The look: Cloudy dark blonde body topped by a small white head.
In long: The hoppy nose is mostly fruity, a fresh citrusy fruits character with grapefruits and peaches coming out strong. In mouthe the beer is medium body with a chewy texture and medium carbonation, typical unfiltered IPA texture. On the malt front we have the usual crackery-bready blonde IPA malt structure that provides an adequate body size, a low sweetness sensation and leaving the flavor spectrum opened to the hops. Generous hopping with mangos, peaches and such that all converge into a very sharp graperuit bitterness in the finish. Maybe a little too bitter to be truly sensionnable even for a hop-head like me. Still, a very solid IPA. It was just a sample from growler at a tasting but I will rate this beer if I want to, nobody tells me what to do, unless you are my wife, and also my mom, and also my boss, also my bully neighbour, basically I do what I want 15 minutes per day.

A pale ale that pushes it’s limits by getting an insane amount of hops thrown in, super tasty, yummy!
