Bottle. Orange-looking amber, fairly opaque, nice head. Subtle hop aroma. Drinks with a firm pillowy mouthfeel and well-balanced delivery of a solid ale base, coupled skillfully with a nice piney hop. (#5828, 10/14/2014)

Au nez, on sent des fleurs, de la fraîcheur et les bleuets. En bouche, c'est assez sucré, un petit goût de miel et de fleurs. L'amertume est légère et agréable. La finale est légère et très douce

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Poured a light amber color ale with a medium size foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of citrus hops notes with some bitter notes easily noticeable. Taste is also dominated by some citrus hops notes with quite bit of bitterness with a non-descript malt backbone. Body is light with good carbonation. Standard IPA which lacks some floral hoppy aromas.

Found on the orphaned singles shelf at the corner bodega. Pours a rich orange with a full head. Restrained nose of citric hops, mild grass. Taste adds a little vegetal pepperiness to the mix. Dry hopping plays nicely; pleasantly bitter throughout. Not complex, but well executed. Glad to see this reaching a wider audience.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Super rich copper and toffee coloured body with a rich, two centimetre tall perfectly tan head - very nice looking. Aroma of rich caramel, toffee, raisins, nuts, earth, malt and a good dose of german or english hops - doesn’t smell like much american in here. Medium-bodied; Grassy and herbal hop notes up front that are decidedly more american with a good malt backbone and a pleasant but mild sweetness that persists. Aftertaste shows a good balance of malt and hops with perhaps a bit too much malt, toffee and bitterness lingering, but not a bad offering. Overall, a decent IPA that bleeds more toward malt than hops, but a nicely flavoured beer at least. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Whole Foods in Washington (Foggy Bottom), DC on 13-January-2014 for US$1.99 sampled at home in Washington on 05-June-2014.
