COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Exploding with hop flavor and aroma, this citrus/piney/floral ale has enough of a malt backbone to stand up to the intense bitterness.

Hazy gold to orange pour with a one-two finger, creamy to soapy white head. Aroma is mango heavy tropical fruit, sweet and bitter citrus, lemon, pine shoots, biscuit, light limestone and a hint of fresh cut grass. Flavor is caramel, biscuit, light sweet breadiness, dank hops, tropical fruit, bitter citrus, lime and boozy and pine shoot notes come in at the same time and remind me a bit of gin. Light to medium body, creamy entry, juicy to slightly chalky middle, medium carbonation and dry, slightly chalky finish. Good stuff, all around solid IPA that I could see myself drinking pretty regularly.

callmemickey (4205) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 17, 2015
Dark golden-orange body, medium sized white head, and soapy lacing. Big tropical nose with some dankness, grapefruit is present, and light crackery malts. Flavor is similar with an increasing malt presence and the nose losing some vibrancy. Medium bodied with moderate to lively carbonation, assertive bitterness.

Bendrixian (1471) - Canadiana, Ontario, CANADA - APR 12, 2015
clearish amber copper pour with a big head that disappears quickly. Hoppy resinous aroma with some citrus but there is a bit of soap in there as well. On the palate it is richly bitter hoppy goodness with some cereal or resin background but a bit metallic at the same time as well. maybe this isn’t the best batch as compared to what others have said about it.

Gold with lots of floating sediment. Fresh malty hop aroma. Taste- a rich malty IPA with a grassy hop aftertaste. A good IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

BVery (9405) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - APR 2, 2015
Bottle from Schlafly in the STL airport. Wow, this is terrific! Hazy orange pour with a small spotty white head. Huge aroma and taste of tropical fruit and a hint of pine. Crushable and delicious. This would be a go-to beer for me if I lived in the area.

This is a great IPA. Beer pours a wonderful hazy golden yellow color with a nice white forming head. Great lacing. The beer is tasty. Fruity citrus coupled with a wonderful fresh hop character. A very enjoyable IPA that should be taken down with a friend or two.

Transfer from BA review on 3-28-13- Poured from bottle into a pint glass Appearance – The beer pours a nice orange-copper color with a thick one finger off white head. The head sits atop the brew for quite a long time, eventually fading down to give a nice level of lace on the sides of the glass. Smell – The aroma is a very pleasant blend of lighter fruits and citrus hop. The fruits are heaviest of a tropical nature with lots of tangerine and mango, but these are mixed with some lighter apricot and peach aromas as well. The hop out does the fruit ever so slightly in potency, bringing a nice grapefruit hop aroma mixed with a light earthy hop smell. Taste – The taste starts out with a bready and more malty flavor with some of the fruit that was detected in the nose. The fruit however is light in potency and consists mostly of the apricot and peach with little or no tropical mango. Also upfront is a decent presence of grapefruit hop which grows stronger as the taste advances. While the grapefruit gets stronger the fruity flavors fade some, with the bready flavors remaining ever vigilant and constant throughout. Toward the end, other hop flavors of a pine and grassy nature come to the tongue with a very small amount of a sugary sweetness, leaving an overall grapefruit bitter, but still somewhat smoother flavor to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is a bit on the creamier and chewier side with a carbonation level that is average to just above average. The thicker and chewy body is very nice for the bready and fruit flavors of the brew, with the carbonation keeping the grapefruit from producing too much bitterness on the tongue at the end of the taste. Overall it is a nice combination for the flavors of the brew. Overall – A rather tasty IPA with a good dose of grapefruit hop that is balanced out by a moderate bready and fruity base. Not a bad brew to sit back and enjoy.
