Pours clear golden to amber color with a minimal head. Aroma ist mainly floral and pine, with a hint of citrus. Quite herby taste with a nice maltiness and a narrow, short lasting bitterness. A bit to herby for my taste, but otherwise ok.

Clear dark golden. Foamy white head. Smells of cleaning product and malt. Bready, hoppy, lots of aroma. Strong bitterness, lasting. Good.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
The color was orangey amber with a foamy off white head. Its head slowly fades to just a thin covering of bubbles. Hops attack the nose with spruce pine, resin and light citrusy hop aromas. The flavor hits your tongue with bold piney and citrusy hop flavors. Malt flavor lies underneath and offers some balance with a mildly sweet and bready tone. The palate has a slightly oily smooth texture with a medium body and soft carbonation.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Ambré claire dorée, limpide. Mousse beige assez persistante. Carbonation moyenne.
Goût houblonné frais, citrique. Fort goût de malt toasté rallongeant la fin de bouche. Fin de bouche sèche et grande amertume persistante.
IPA atypique, de part sa clarté-limpidité, et de par son fort goût de malts.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle from Wegman’s, Buffalo. Golden amber with a loose ceam head; the aroma is surprisingly malty; in the mouth there’s an immediate hit of strongly aromatic bitter hops over a body of well toasted grains; the finish is long with a metallic, herbal, edge to it. An attractive East Coast style IPA.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a clear amber with little to no head, spotty lacing. Nose is relatively light - pine, citrus, some caramel malt and floral notes. Taste is nicely balanced caramel malt sweetness and resiny hop bitterness, perhaps a little West Coast style dankness. Mouth feel is surprisingly light given the low carbonation and high ABV, with a lingering bitter finish.
Not bad at all. A decently robust IPA that would almost qualify as a West Coast DIPA, both in bittering and ABV. Speaking of ABV, there’s no overt signs of it in the flavour or the mouth feel - a little sneaky!

Draft at friend’s house. Pours a clear amber with nice white head. Aroma is mainly floral and pine. Taste follows the nose with hints of citrus added in. This just felt super fresh and lively. We’ve had multiple glasses from this keg and each was outstanding. Nothing flashy, but very drinkable.
