12 oz bottle into a pint glass. A: Pours an apricot color. The head is a fluffy one finger off-white shade. All in all, the looks are typical for the style: frothy head, okay retention, and plenty of lacing left behind. S: Aromatically, hops do jump out from the glass - mainly the floral, lemony variety. Sourdough bread seems to make an appearance, too. I’ve grown to point where I can smell Centennial hops from a mile away, and this brew’s got ’em. T: Flavor-wise, it’s sweeter than what the aroma let on. I was waiting for the bitterness to prick the tongue...and instead I got a sweet, caramel forward brew where the hops are only there to balance instead of being showcased. Late in the aftertaste, some floral and spicy hop notes do appear. Aside from the typical caramel and toffee notes, it’s also a bit earthy. M: It’s a rather clean brew, which at least helps quash some of the sweetness well. It glides down the tongue with a crisp bite, too I’d almost call it thirst quenching...no, I will call it thirst quenching. Not dry by any stretch, but it does a good job of going down easily anyways. The sweet finish doesn’t bother me at all. O: I’ll give it one thing - it’s drinkable. Very drinkable, even for a 7.3% IPA. It just doesn’t have the most interesting flavor is all. If I had bought a 6 pack of this (which I didn’t) I wouldn’t have any trouble killing it.

Ett öl som inte kräver mer än det ger. Det går ned utan att man knappt märker det, vilket är beröm och klander i en salig blandning. Dagsformen avgör proportionerna i betygsmixen.

This is a very good IPA. Good malt base for a golden color and sticky foam. Enough hops to make their presence known. Resin and lupulin make a nice coating on the tongue that finishes smooth yet noticeable. Nice.

Draft - nice puffy white head with an orangish color. Nose of citrus and hops. Taste follows the nose. Decent malt kick and back end bitterness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle as a recent extra! Pour has an orange amber color with a thick coating of off white head that retained fairly well. Aroma has pine, flowery resins, and dusty malt. Mouth feel is medium and the carbonation medium low. Flavor has resins, pine, low side bitterness, light citrus, and caramel malt.

A little disappointing. Thin mouthfeel. Lacking balance- bitter on the back end but little malt character.

TheHopster (749) - Netcong, New Jersey, USA - APR 12, 2014
(Bottle). Hop and floral aroma. Clear light amber complexion with thin head and lacing. Fairly clean flavor with piney hops. Very smooth and dangerously sessionable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

kevinator (721) - The Colony, Texas, USA - APR 11, 2014
Enjoyable. Strong piney and floral hop aroma. Average orange-amber color with a white fizzy head. Nice mouthfeel of average weight that coats the mouth. High carbonation matches the bitterness well. Harsh bitterness up front that lingers with a slight pale malt sweetness on the finish. Not as balanced as I had hoped but good nonetheless.
