22 oz bottle poured and split. After game 14 of the year. Thanks Tcon for the share. Cloudy golden pour with a lasting fizz head. Spicy malt and grassy hop aroma. Flavor is medium bitter hops, malt heavier presence, and a lingering, solid hop profile. Cool finish. Overall solid. Another above average IPA.

Picked up a 6-pack of these on clearance at supermarket. A nice, hoppy IPA. Crisp with a tinge of sweetness on the aftertaste. A bit piney and fruity.

Pours hazy golden color with a large white head. Slightly citric aroma, pine, resinous hops, lemon, orange zest and some malty tones. Orange, mandarin, lemon and grassy notes on the flavor, resinous hops, faint mango sweetness. Bitter hoppy palate, some juiciness on the finish. Quite nice.

Can sample at a tasting, thanks DSG! Hazy yellow golden, nice creamy head. Pleasant fruity and citric hops aroma with notes of mango, gyava, pine and grapefruit. Sweetish, fruity, juicy hops, a bit grassy, nice crispy bitterness. Medium-bodied, smooth and easy drinking. Nice.

On tap at the brewery. Pours a clear golden amber with a thin white head. Citrus on the nose, a bit of spiciness. Medium-bodied, spicy citrus, a touch of rye. Cool and spicy, citrus, bright pine. Slow grapefruit and a hint of quinine on the finish.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Piney-grapefruit nose with a touch of smokiness. Clean, refreshing bitterness with a medium body. A bit of sweetness as it warms up and breathes. Some clinging bitterness on the roof of the mouth--perhaps a little overbittered. Nice hop flavor, which is often lacking in west coast IPAs. A great IPA in a style where competition is stiff.

Bottle to pint glass. Orange-copper with slight haze and white head. Mix of grapefruit and slight pine, dank aroma. Taste follows aroma but has a moderate high bitterness. I tend to brew my IPA with Simcoe and Amarillo....so I am biased on this blend and bumping it up a point or two. Could use some Falconer or any of the tropical fruit hops to give it a more modern take, but I enjoyed it.
