Pretty good IPA. Light in taste. A good lighter IPA. Overall good taste just would have liked a bit more of a complex flavor.

Absolutely my favorite IPA. Hoppy, crisp, aromatic, refreshing. Pairs great with a turkey sandwich on rye. Plus I love their artwork! Not always easy to find in my area but always a nice surprise when i do. Floral, citrus, resin

650ml brown bottle. A bit unclear, yellow colour, thick white foam. Big bands of lace in the glass. Nose has citrusy hops and some pine. Taste has some caramel, grain, grapefruit. Dryish end with some lingering citrus notes. Pretty clean and drinkable IPA.

Not as bitter as it could have been, and it finish is more dry than it mightn’t need to be. But it pours great, looks great and drinks really well. Aroma is lightly grass, and there are citrus things in this but I can’t pick anything in particular. But a nice beer for an IPA and one that a lot of people would get on with.

Good, but nothing special. Great nose, good looks, and a fine flavor (heavy on the pine, which is good by me). Clearly a well-crafted west coast IPA, but with so many standouts in the category, this one doesn't rise above...

Draft. Fairly high carbonation. Clear, golden color. Nice hoppy aroma. Nice taste up front, but the aftertaste is pretty piney, and lingering bitterness. Not bad, but not my favorite.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled February 18, 2014.
Appearance: Clear vibrant and sparkling amber body with a dense and foamy white head.
Aroma: The aroma is mild and clean with a prominent orange juice aroma. A touch of malts peaks through, a tad bready with a light sweetness to it.
Taste: The flavor has a big grapefruit flavor that runs through it, a bit of grassiness and by the end a touch of caramel. This has a rather big bitterness of grapefruit with a dry finish that oddly reminds me of dry oak chips.
Palate: Light and crisp, highly carbonated.
Overall: I like the crispness of this, but the flavor is very dry and the dryness lingers like the desert. If you’re a fan of a grapefruit heavy dry IPA then this is for you.
