Pours a light amber/dark gold with a white head that may not last very long. Light nose with notes of hops and malts, medium light body. Lots of hops in the taste, I’m talking major hops. More hops than I can count but don’t worry it is a smooth drinker. A bit sweet with a bitter ending truly a great ipa. If your a hophead and you can get your hands on a six pack its well worth it. Got mine at 101 bottles in Kent.

bottle that poured medium orange to light copper with white head and nice lacing. mild to medium malt base and a distinct aroma of citrus like almost pineapple and banana blend and I want to say coconut which is truly weird. but it smells great. maybe a touch of buttery caramel. the flavor all that and more...actually smoother than I would have figured at 70 ibu’s. but there is a distinct floral and citrus hop blend with a mild malt base. this beer taste fantastic.

Was excited as it was number one on a blind taste test list I found. A little too piney and dry for me. Still great.

Bottle. The pour is a dull orange. The aroma is full and floral, very nice. The taste is a little dish water upfront, but improves, good mixture of flavor. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle (12 oz) @ Hotel Room Tasting. Thanks to Russ for the bottle!

Appearance: Hazy bright golden with a small bubbly white head and little lacing.

Aroma: Weed, dank hops, tropical fruits and hints of resin.

Taste: Weed, onions, dankness, tropical fruits and light bitterness. Like the description states, malt is in the back seat.

Palate: Medium body. Moderate carbonation. Oily. Dank and herbal/grassy finish.

Overall: Tasty IPA. Dank hop juice with minimal malt presence. Lack a bit of carbonation though. Really good!

mathieuc (1954) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 25, 2015
Pours a hazy golden with a thin partial white head that leaves some lacing. Nose is of fruits and dank stuff. Taste is fruity and a touch over "medium" when it comes to bitterness. Body was medium and carbonation medium-high. Overall a pretty nice offering!
