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.

finger head showed quickly and had some decent staying power. The soapy thickness of the head makes for some decent lacing. Zesty grapefruit stands up front followed by pine, lemon and orange. The hops are extremely aromatic and they overpower the sweet, caramel smelling malty backbone. Smooth, sweet hoppy bitters are up front in the mouth and evoke tastes of grapefruit and pine being most prominent. The malty caramel background here is light but contributes well to the sweetness here. Very drinkable for the hop lover. Thick on the front but some middle of the road carbonation makes the end crisp and refreshing. Keeps bringing me back for more. Very tasty overall. Well rounded and refreshing. Just a slightly above average IPA and something I could enjoy a few of and a summer evening.

gripweed57 (1365) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - SEP 4, 2016
12 ounce bottle. Pours a hazy yellow golden color. Moderate rocky white head is firm and dense. Intense piney hop nose, redolent of bitter grapefruit. Upfront, flavor is sweet malt and citrusy hops. Starts out subtle, but the hoppiness becomes more intense in the midtaste. Complex and spicy with tropical fruit notes. Well hidden is the 7.2% ABV. Nicely crafted and a stellar example of American lupinicity.

Nice hoppy American ipa with a nice citrus note. Finishes nice... color is a little hazy and light.

jefcon (1642) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - JUL 5, 2016
Standard pour, but tons of bitterness, citrus and pine from this terrific IPA. Sticky and tart, with a spicy aroma that belies the massive hop content on the palate.

MacNJ (49) - New Jersey, USA - MAY 25, 2016
UPDATED: MAY 26, 2016 The appearance is one weakness with a watery head and a cloudy, unfiltered pour. However, the nose is fully hopped, and the taste matches it’s sniff. Very hoppy. Solid IPA. Cheers!

Patrickctenchi (6031) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - JAN 13, 2016
Bottle: Hazy, golden-yellow with a short, slick, off-white head. Grapefruit, orange, lemon peel scent. Juicy citrus taste, grapefruit, orange...... Plenty of steady, peel bitter. This is a very nice one....tingly and tasty.

lbianchi66 (318) - FRANCE - DEC 4, 2015
Robe dorée et opaque. Peu de mousse. Faibles arômes d?écorce d?agrumes et résines. Goût biscuit et marmelade. Final fruits confits. Plutôt courte en bouche.Une IPA correcte.

Bottled. To be fair my had some floaters in it so the appearance was not so great. However the taste was a nice bold hops. Dry after has a fruity orangy hops taste. Not much piney hops but very good IPA.

Throw in from a trade with gregwilsonstl. Pours a golden amber color with big fizzy head. Aromas of fruit and citrus peel and some piney notes. Flavors of tropical fruits and some piney hops.

Bottle at home late night. Yellow orange beer one finger head. Nose is tropical fruits and pine. Tastes of pine, resin, juicy fruit gum, banana, florals, light vanilla notes. Sweet fruity finish. Palate is creamy with hints of bitterness.

A pretty good ipa. Descent aroma and a good hoppy flavor. Labor day beer drinking is good.
