Strong hop aroma. Full malt body, infused with super fresh hops, which are citrus forward with some pine. Bitterness in just the right amount; this is not a hop bomb. Perfectly balanced, and recommended! A-

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from BevX360, Bellingham
Hazy light amber color with medium sized head. Fruity aroma, mellow, peachy with a touch of tropical fruit. Off-dry mouthfeel, but smooth; it has a delicate toffee-malt backbone, a bit crackery, the right canvas for a hoppy beer; correct bitterness level, with a reasonable portion of hop fruitiness and some hop resins.
Fresh and drinkable; the beer I like to drink.

On tap at Belmont Ststion. Colour...hazy gold with a thick white head. Nose...heavily conifer oriented hops with sugar frosted tropical fruits and lemon curd. Palate...zesty, vibrant and fresh with grapefruit pulp and pith, rose hips and apple leaf. The entire palate is bitter and dry with an almost alum like feel. The finish is long, bitter and zippy with dust coated hops.

Draft at sb. Pours a cloudy dark orange with bright golden bronze edges. Dense creamy tan head that doesnt hang around forever. Loose stringy lace. Enormous sweet orange and orange rind nose, tangerines and grapefruits. Intensely fruity. Hop showcase. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Toasty caramel mid palate with sparkling fruit notes all over. Balanced, harmonious, and distinctly powerful. Beautifully done.

This beer is hoppy...a bit more so than I normally prefer, but unlike some other high hop beers that I have drank, this one began to grow on me. My wife surprised me with a growler of it, and I wasnít sure I would finish it...that is not going to be a problem.

Can from Beer Cats. Hopvine IPA 6.1% made with Columbus, Chinook & Citra hops, continues the winning streak Schooner Exact is on - Iíve thoroughly enjoyed every canned IPA of theirs Iíve had. The beautiful can helps boost my enjoyment too.
The aroma on this is terrific, full of huge aromatic fruit & pine notes. The deep copper color is a beauty and it has a massive head of beige foam that lingers before leaving tons of lacing behind.
Medium-light bodied with a slightly raspy mouthfeel & a semi-dry finish that gives it a bit of a bite.
The taste has just enough malt sweetness to support the oodles & oodles of hops. Pine, citrus, passionfruit, prickly pear, this is one flavorful IPA.

Bomber from Malt & Vine. Pours light amber with a slight white head. Strong citrus aroma with a hint of caramel. Full bodied or nearly. Flavor is astringent citrus with a decent caramel backdrop. Maybe some resin. There is a mild hop burn that builds. Itís really not far from a DIPA, flavorwise. Very, very nice ale.

Aroma: moderate pine hop.
Appearance: small, frothy, off-white, initial head with good lacing and fully diminishing longevity. Clear, dark-yellow body.
Taste: lightly bitter initial flavor and lightly bitter, grapefruit finish with average duration.
Palate: medium body, watery texture and soft carbonation.
Overall: excellent. Great hoppy aroma but not overly bitter. Easy to drink
