Can via trade courtesy of BuckeyeBoy, tks Jeremy. De couleur dorée sur un col blanc moyen. Arôme est houblonné à la frontière du résineux et du pin (Simcoe?) avec un fruité en rétro nasal de Columbus ponctué par de petites effluves tropicales. Palais est axé sur les houblons qui brillent par leur profile. Palais est sec, note de pin, sève, malté léger avec une fin de bouche légère de caramel. Note douce arrive en retrait apportant un rappel de fruit de la passion.

Draft at the brewery. Pours clear amber with a fizzy white head. Tastes hoppy, sweet, like orange, pine, musk. Light/medium body and low carbonation. Smells like musky, sweaty, pine and light citrus.

arminjewell (6322) - lansing, Michigan, USA - FEB 25, 2014
Pour out of 12 oz can, slightly hazy orange pour with white head, aroma brought notes of big lemon, earth, spice, hints of pine, touch of tropical fruit in there as well. Taste is a mix of tropical fruit, lemon, orange, hints of biscuit, bread, slight earth, finishing with some spice. Pretty nice.

12 oz can. Thanks Ed. Gold, slight haze, white head. Aroma is huge, fruity, juicy-citrus hops with a little pine. Flavor is fairly dry, bready/biscuit malt, piney hops, slight grassy note, lingering bitterness. Very easy drinking. Nice.

stevoj (2292) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JAN 19, 2014
Piney, citrusy hops in both aroma and taste. Medium gold body with small tight head. Grapefruit finish, tangy and slightly dry. Crisp, clean IPA.

Dredd (700) - Bentleigh, AUSTRALIA - JAN 18, 2014
This one is ok, but nothing to get to excited about. Aroma is citrus grapefruit, flavor is assist a bit soapy upfront with mild malt so the finish overwhelms. Had this in tap, can’t recommend

brinehart (212) - Colorado, USA - DEC 31, 2013
The way American IPA should be! Simcoe + Columbus is awesome. Piney, citrus and tropical fruit, resin. Just a hint of malt for balance and drink ability, but hops rule. Just a hint of onion in the nose, otherwise awesome.

pinkie (470) - New York, USA - NOV 2, 2013
UPDATED: NOV 3, 2013 Pours a golden orange with a slight chill haze. Bubbles rising up to greet the underbelly of a creamy head of white foam that fell off lazy and left rings of lace. The nose is bright orange, light tangerine, smooth pine. No malt scents until it warms and then it’s just a bit of honey. Has a little spice and herbal on the nose. Taste is completely unbalanced and delicious. Has a soft malt that carries this drink smooth and with prominent citrus. Touch of bread. Plenty of tangerine and grapefruit. Slick mouthfeel. Spice and pine finish this one semi dry with a bitter that is not too sharp.

Thanks Bill for the chance to try one of your favorites.

Pours a clear, straw/gold with a solid white head. Aroma’s of HOPS resinous and piney with some notes of citrus and light breadiness. Off-dry flavors throughout with a bitter finish. Sharp mouthfeel with a bitter, almost astringent finish. Hopsheads will love this one.
