COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This IPA sacrifices nothing for its drinkability, flexing big time flavor and complexity. The light color disguises the depth of the malt backbone, a pillar that balances the potent whole-cones of the piney-citrus Cascade and tropical fruit-like Citra hops.

12oz bottle from Downer Wine and Spirits. Pours a clear, amber color with a white head and some lacing. Aroma is hoppy, pine, floral, a little bit of citrusy grapefruit. Medium on the palate with creamy carbonation. Flavor is a little sweet, mostly bitter, hoppy, piney, some grass, some grapefruit, with a bitter finish that lingers for a while. Pushes the edge on bitterness for me. Close, but not quite over the edge.

Bottled, amber color with no head. Piney bitter aroma with same flavor, a little astringent and harsh

flatmatt (1275) - Northville, Michigan, USA - AUG 9, 2013
12 oz bottle. Pours golden amber with an off-white head and a few medium pieces of debris. Moderate piney, citrus, spicy hop aromas. Flavor is mostly of spicy, earthy, and pine hops, toasty malts. Honestly I don’t think this is that great an IPA.

portableparty (2067) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - AUG 9, 2013
12 oz. bottle. Pours gold with a foamy soapy off white head that dissipates to a spotty film. Aroma is earthy with spruce some sweet floral hops and malt. Taste is bitter earthy floral hops and malt with mild spice and yeast character. Palate is thin to medium with a chalky dry finish.

Citrus and hops aroma is strong. Tastes of citrus hops and pine. Good IPA but nothing extraordinary

Pretty standard IPA from SN. Aroma is a citrus fruits and pine. Taste is somewhat similar. Good looking beer in the class. Not bad.

Bottle pour to shaker. Piney with malt dominating over the hops; a bit watery finish.

BMMillsy (1756) - Florida, USA - AUG 8, 2013
Pours a beautiful clear copper color with creamy one finger head. Aroma is unique, with musty hops, yeast, tropical fruit, grass. Hmmm, strange. Flavor is lacking in hop flavor for the style, with mostly watered down malt flavor here with some slightly bitter grass. Very drinkable I guess but not something I want to drink. Hopefully I just got a bad bottle? Not very good.

very clear orange/gold colour with a thin white head. aroma is piney, orange citrus hop and cramel maltiness. Light boozines. Flavour is burnt sugar caramel with piney slightly spicey hop.
