Quick3Beers (808) - East Falmouth, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 20, 2016
Pours a hazy dark amber from a bottle, off-white head, a quick pour left some surprisingly large bubbles. Lots of lacing. Grapefruity/pine aroma, similar flavor with a nice underlying sweet maltiness. Well balanced simple IPA that gets it right.

Nickls (2316) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - FEB 6, 2016

OrthoDoc (131) - South Carolina, USA - FEB 4, 2016
Not my type of IPA. Has very earthy and slightly floral smell very similar to Hoppyum IPA. Strong on the malts, mild on the hops, with decent bitterness and sweetness. Decent but won't buy again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Sampled from a bottle. Pours amber colour with a white head. Fruity, hoppy aromas, and a taste of mango, citrus and pine from American hops. Creamy mouthfeel. Very nice, fruity pale ale.
