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. Iíve grown to point where I can smell Centennial hops from a mile away, and this brewís got íem. T: Flavor-wise, itís 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, itís also a bit earthy. M: Itís a rather clean brew, which at least helps quash some of the sweetness well. It glides down the tongue with a crisp bite, too Iíd 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 doesnít bother me at all. O: Iíll give it one thing - itís drinkable. Very drinkable, even for a 7.3% IPA. It just doesnít have the most interesting flavor is all. If I had bought a 6 pack of this (which I didnít) I wouldnít have any trouble killing it.

12 oz can. Amber in color with a decent off-white head. Aroma is of pine, grass, citrus, light resin. Taste is the same.

adasko (874) - Poznan, POLAND - MAY 24, 2015
W aromacie trawa, sosna. Piwo lekko opalizujące, barwa bursztynowa. Niska piana, ładny lacing. W smaku początkowo dość słodko, nawet cukierkowo, ale zaraz potem pojawiają się nuty trawiaste, potem goryczka. Goryczka dość krůtka, zostaje na chwile w posmaku. Ogůlnie piwo bardzo dobre.

Lowe1983 (1377) - Dayton, Ohio, USA - MAY 12, 2015
Pours an amber color with an off-white head. Aroma is of caramel malts and citrus and pine hops. Flavor is strong of the caramel malts with a slightly bitter finish from the citrus hops. Pretty well blended.

tectactoe (3080) - Michigan, USA - MAY 12, 2015
Bottle: Golden-straw color, mild haziness with a slightly off-white cap on top; big, bubbly, creamy. Aroma full of perfume, white pepper spice, rose petals, heavy floral notes, earth, & mild citrus peel with a twinge of sugar cookie sweetness. Flavor is heavily peppery, ashy, floral, & earthy. Lots of perfume, too. Tastes like lots of English hops were used (even though thatís not the case). Hints of alcohol peak through. Finishes herbal with earthy, spicy hops, must, & bready-biscuit malt. Decent IPA, a little strange, though.

Theydon_Bois (12082) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 9, 2015
Keg at Craft Conundrum, Charleston, 18/02/15. Golden amber with a moderate light beige covering. Nose is bitter orange, citric peel, straw, juicy hop notes. Taste comprises light grapefruit, hops, straw, melon, bread dough. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close with hop bitterness evident. Ok IPA.

Underdogs88 (258) - New Jersey, USA - MAY 8, 2015
Aroma smells like a blend of caramel and citrus, piney hops. Appearance is light gold with an average sized white head. Flavor has notes of piney hop with caramel malt flavor with bread notes. Mouthfeel is medium with medium carbonation. Overall, this IPA needs more hop flavor and aroma. Also, the caramel notes conflict with the hop aroma and flavor. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

kingaugusta (22) - Georgia, USA - APR 28, 2015
Pours deep blonde (almost a little orange) with a quick off-white head and a potent floral nose. The hops never hold back on the flavor, almost to the point of being a little too much for the relatively moderate gravity, though itís generally balanced and certainly a good beer.

Kroney (198) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 14, 2015
BIF project. Pours golden orange with a thin off-white head. Marginal lacing. Aroma is muted citrus, pine, tropical hop. Balanced by some cracker malt. Flavor is a bit stronger than the muted aroma. Mostly citrus rind, with some tropical fruit and malt balance. Nice bitter finish. Good IPA.
