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.

Excellent prototypical American IPA. Nice piney nose. Bitter grapefruit and citrus flavors balanced nicely with the slightly sweet malt backbone. Deep orange color. Medium bodied. Very good beer.

355 ml bottle. No freshness info. Thanks rosenbergh!
Pours clear gloden color with a small head. Resinous hops and tropical fruits on the nose, pine. Quite bitter, very fruity with resinous hops, some caramel malts. Slick palate, leaves a oily layer in your mouth. Quite nice hoppy brew.

Beerman6686 (5196) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 1, 2011
This poured a semi cloudy dark yellow to orange color with a beige head. Aroma was nice amounts of fruity citrusy hops with light biscuty malts there too. Finally an IPA’s taste lives up to its aroma, nice bitter fruit and light pine balanced slightly by sweeter biscuty caramel mlat. Very refreshing.

bhensonb (12173) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 13, 2012
Can from Brewforia. Pours light amber gold with a 3 finger frothy white head. Aroma is floral with light citrus over barely detectable caramel. Near med body. There’s lots of floral, a little citrus. This is not harsh. There’s a hint of that, maybe some resin, but this is smooth and relatively delicate. It’s certainly not sweet, but it isn’t exactly what I’d call bitter. It’s one of those interesting beers that has a load of hop, but there’s not bitter/burn. Finishes very hoppy. And certainly more bitter than sweet. Very nice thing here.

Shared by turdferguson. Pours a cloudy soft peachy yellow with a sticky white head. Nose is interesting, hard to describe. Some piney and citrusy notes with a juicy/tropical quality. Definitely some tropical and ephemeral fruits in the flavor with a lightly candyish quality. Slightly soapy too, but soap I want to drink if that makes sense. Light to medium in body with a dry finish.

Nickls (1947) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - NOV 7, 2012
Tap. Clear light yellow orange with a nice frothy head that leaves nice curtainy lacing. Very bright grapefruit at first in the aroma, some wild onion and breadiness as well. The wild onion note is less present in the flavor, but still retains nicely aggressive hops with citrus and slight pine. Medium softer body.
