Aroma is full of hop goodness and the expression there carries over in the flavor. Bitterness is tuned up a bit and dominates slightly. The body is significant and on the heavy side for an IPA. This heft is appealing but the beer remains refreshing.

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.

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.

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.

Aroma: fresh floral hops, good dose of pine/resin, some light malts and faint sweet notes, pleasant grapefruit/citrus.
Appearance: light golden color, good clarity, average white head that fades to a lasting ring, leaves some spotty lacing.
Taste: refreshing burst of hops - lots of resin with some citrus, then a nice light malty follow up. Malt generally stays out of the way of the hops - just enough to balance, nice light cracker character with a bit of sweetness. Alcohol is well hidden, medium bitterness that is nice and clean with no lingering bitterness/astringency after the taste.
Palate: medium body and carbonation, semi-dry finish.
Overall: really nice IPA - great hop punch with subdued malt character, right up my alley.

Pours an slightly cloudy gold, with a fluffy white head and good lacing. The nose is citrus, pine, and caramel malts. Medium in body, and very refreshing mouthfeel. The flavor is very well balanced between the tasty malts and flavorful and nicely bitter hops. The finish shows both fruit and a prefect degree of bitterness. Exceptionally refreshing and easy drinking. An exceptional IPA.

Can mail-ordered from the brewery. Underrated IPA. The aroma on this is solidly potent. I got some serious Simcoe goodness from this one right off the bat. Strong, dank herbal notes go right for my nose. This isn’t all that malty which allows the hops to do their thing. Clean, bitter citrus is evident like pineapple and grapefruit. Long, dry finish. Excellent IPA in a can.

12oz can pours a clear bright amber/orange with a large white. Inviting aroma of earthy resinous pine, floral, and caramel. Taste has a nice hop spice well balanced with biscuit malt , pretty nice bite to it. Well rounded and flavorful, very nice!

12oz can poured into a tulip. From my Summer Secret Santa 2012. Thanks! Pours a clear burnt orange with about a finger of white head. Aroma of citrus and pine. Taste is medium bitter. Mostly pine with some citrus and grapefruit. Medium bodied with a slick texture. Lively carbonation and a long finish. Overall, great. I would gladly drink this again.
