Bottle as a birthday gift from my brother! Pours a clear golden orange from the bottle with nice cap of foamy white head and decent lacing. Aroma is citrus and pine hoppy notes with nice caramel malt backbone. Taste follows, slightly bitter finish. Good commercial description on this one, solid beer overall.

phikus01 (103) - New York, USA - MAY 1, 2013
Excellent IPA, citrus pine grassy aroma, dank spruce hop bitterness against a solid but in the background backbone. Nice lacing, balanced finish. Perfect abv for an IPA and carefully woven into the hops and malt to make this almost too drinkable. Top notch it is.

caralkaline87 (435) - Washington DC, USA - APR 22, 2013
Typical light coppery IPA pour with virtually no head and light white lacing. Nose is bitter hops and fruit, but not overly strong. Flavor brings the hops on fairly strong with a decent balancing malt and a touch of candy. Finish is fairly quick and mostly bitter. Solid IPA, but nothing you’ll remember a year from now.

Lubiere (10094) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - APR 19, 2013
A hazed amber golden IPA with a thick frothy light mocha head. In aroma, nice grassy floral hops with light lemony notes. In mouth, super classic IPA with loads of citrusy floral hops, pink grapefruit notes, warming alcohol, very nice.
