Very light amber with a small white head. Huge fruity hop forward aroma. Lots of lime and lemon zest hop bitterness with some tropical fruits and just a touch of chronic. Bitter finish, dry, resiny, good mouthfeel. Damn nice.

Poured from bottle. Perfectly golden color. Intense tropical aroma of pineapple/tangerine, gently backed by a pine sharpness. Taste is pineapple tartness with a rounded honeylike, malty bottom end. Bitterness lingers in the middle/back of the mouth with pine spice and citrus. My preferred style of IPA. Great dimension for anytime of year.

AWISLguy (1423) - Wisconsin, USA - OCT 24, 2014
Bottle from jsquire, thanks Jeff! Pours a golden orange with a white head leaving streaky lacing. Aroma has oranges, pine, other citrus and some fresh fruits. with toffee. Taste is of sweet fruits, oranges, sprucy pine, and a solid malt base. Quite hop-forward. Light to medium bodied and quite dry. Finishes well balanced between the bitter hops and the sweet hops. A very tasty and solid IPA! 14.8

shrubber85 (7949) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - OCT 17, 2014
Bottle. Orange malt and pine/grapefruit peel aroma. Hazy golden yellow with moderate head and nice lacing. Sweet pineapple/orange malt and moderately bitter pine flavor. A very nice IPA.

rondphoto (2282) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - OCT 17, 2014
bottle @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Clear medium amber with a thick ivory head, splatters of lace. Taste is malt that is dumped on by pine hops. But, like a drowning man, the malt keeps reappearing. Strong, hop dominated, but eminently drinkable.

Boutip (4863) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 17, 2014
Bottle: Poured a amber color ale with a medium size foamy head with good retention. Aroma of citrus and piney undertones is quiet nice. Taste is also dominated by citrus notes with light piney notes also observable. Bitterness isnít too intense with floral notes as dominant as I would have expected. Body is about average with good carbonation. Tasty beer with well balance bitterness level and great hops aroma. I would have liked flora notes to be even more dominant but still a very enjoyable IPA.
