This is a killer English style IPA. Pours a nice orange / clear color with a good off white head. Aroma is citrus and pine resin. The flavors of hops, malt, slight vanilla and a touch of sweetness on the finish make this a great all round IPA.

lb4lb (2487) - Austin, Texas, USA - JUN 1, 2014
Pours a hazy thick attractive orange with medium offwhite head and yeast floaties. Smell is amber ale like crystal malt, tea and hops. Taste is tea and medium hop bitterness with kind of a dull hop flavor. Not particularly fresh, or fruity from the hops, but overall it is decent. Full body and prickly carbonation. Just not my prefered flavor profile.

Beaver (1270) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAY 29, 2014
12 oz bottle, best by 7/16/14. Pours slightly hazy golden orange with a big meringue white head that retains well and laces the glass.

The aroma is sweet bready malts with some grassy hops.

The flavor is sweet toasted malts with some grassy bitterness and a little fruit. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with smooth carbonation.

Overall, it’s very subdued and sweet and grassy.

patrick767 (3528) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - MAY 25, 2014
bottle - Pours orange with a large dense head and has a good grapefruit hop aroma. The flavor is moderate to high bitterness with citrus and some up front malt sweetness. It’s medium bodied with fine carbonation and overall a very solid IPA.

northropfrye (2140) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - MAY 18, 2014
Light orange body with white head and lacing. Juicy fruit, malts, a touch of hops in the aroma. Taste is not very bitter, more on the malt side for an IPA, at least the bottle I tried.

Bottle. Nose is citrus and grapefruit. Clean. Maybe a little too malt forward for my liking.

foosnbrews (145) - Parker, Colorado, USA - MAR 24, 2014
Awesome pine, citrus, dank aroma. Low malt, low esters. Beer poors hazy gold with a persistent white head. Good malt presence, but bitterness dominates flavor appropriately. Surprisingly low hop flavor, but grapefruit flavors come through. Medium body, drying texture, very lively, and a nice bitter finish. Overall a very approachable IPA with great aroma and supporting malt

On tap poured a hazy golden-orange hue w/ a small white head. Moderate floral aroma. Initial flavor is light sweet w/ a moderate bitter finish. Tastes are orange citrus, straw, and mellon. Medium bodied, avg carbonation, and watery mouthfeel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
