markextrae (2144) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 31, 2015
Shared bottle at home. Exporten to the netherlands. Poured a very boring clear dark golden colour like my morning urine with a white head. Nose of sweet crispy malts, and even some chocolate or cacao, metallic notes, cardboard, chemical, and a parfume hop notes. Weird old bitterness. Very bad. Unbalanced

Not really sure how I haven’t rated this before... Poured into a shaker. Golden color with a creamy off white head. Aroma has a malty sweetness with some citrus and resinous hop notes. Flavor has some bready malt with a big dose of hop bitterness with predominantly piney notes. Medium bodied with mild astringency. Solid IPA.

Nice bold taste, hops and pine and flavor up front. Long lingering bitter finish of the hops. Pleasant head with lacing, nice dark amber coloring. Good, solid, noteworthy IPA

mikedR (1562) - Gilbert, Arizona, USA - JUL 9, 2015
Nice, solid all around IPA. Nothing unusual here, but that’s a good thing. Well balanced, maybe even a hint of sweetness in the malts. Good.

radio_nowhere (1145) - Maryland, USA - JUN 23, 2015
Draft sample at Ale Mary’s in Scranton, PA; golden-amber color with off-white head. Aroma notes of pine/citrus hops, light spiciness and caramel malt sweetness. Taste adds citrus hop fruitiness (grapefruit, orange, some lemon), citrus zest and resin. Medium-light body, moderate-low carbonation, dry with lingering pine/citrus finish. Pretty solid west coast style IPA.

johnbuck100 (251) - Lancaster, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 15, 2015
On tap at BTS in DC. Hazy orange. Definitely hop forward but a bit astringent bitter bite. No prob with the bitterness but a bit harsh on the tongue. Decent, but does not rise to greatness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

gripweed57 (983) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - MAY 15, 2015
12 ounce bottle. Pours a bright Amber orange with a moderate rocky beige. Nice lacing. Piney hop nose with grapefruit notes. Nice toasted caramel maltiness is balanced by the pine and grapefruit spicy hops. Some tropical fruit notes in mid taste. Finish is dry and complex. A very good West Coast IPA.
