Thanks Jeff. Light amber color with a full head of light taupe bubbles. Full fresh hops aromas, with fresh cut cedar and just a hint of oranges and grapefruit. LIght citrus throughout the sip with hints of pale malt and plenty of pine. A pure hoppy IPA. Really no fault in that, it is what it is, and one thing for sure is that it is just a good hoppy brew.

Overall a good beer.Nice thick head with a ruby color.Very hop-filled bite with alittle bit of a metallic finish.Would suggest beer is having a steak dinner and a crisp ale was recommended.

Bottled. Amber coloured. Unclear. Light brown head. Impressive sight. Herbal and flowery aroma. Spiced and fruity. Flavour is citric piney and has a herbal and flowery fruityness. Is heavily bitter in the end. Quite easy to drink. Light warming. Full bodied. I really dig this one. Thanks to Mullman for this really really good IPA.

Fine off-white head, orangegolden colored. American hop nose with a nice refreshing fruityness and a light spicyness. Fruity and flower hoppy flavor with some sweetness under the bitterness. A bit of alcohol in the finish. A really nice and refreshing IPA! Thanks Mads!

Bottle obtained in a trade with the trade-tastic Illinismitty! Thanks Sean!!! Pours a slightly hazy orange color with a medium thick, fluffy head and lots of lacing. Aroma is like tomatoes or pizza sauce, i know it’s weird but that’s all i can smell in the beer! Flavor is hoppy and slightly bitter, but i’m having a hard time getting past the tomato smell in my nose. Dry and light on the palate and a very middle of the road beer for me. Thanks again Sean!!!

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle from the Foodery. Pours a brilliant copper color with a one inch white head. Hop aroma dominates and is evident a foot away from the glass. Nice hop flavor up front, but gives way to a body that is much thinner than i expected. hop flavors lingered on my palate for a while.

Piney like a Christmas tree. Bitter hop bite with a slightly sweet finish. ABV tasted higher than I thought it would have, alcohol added to the sweet spice flavor. Very good.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
(Bottle via trade with goldtwins, thanks Larry!) Pours a little hazy, yellowish-orange with a frothy off-white head. Aroma of pine. Mouthfeel very smooth, almost slick, a bit prickly. Sloppy spots of lacing. Flavor is mostly pine and a bit of fruitiness with a moderate bitterness overlaying. There is malt in there but I could almost "feel" it more than taste it. Finishes smooth, a little bitter. Good.
