gururyan (615) - Stillwater, Oklahoma, USA - MAR 24, 2013
UPDATED: MAR 28, 2013 Poured from bottle into snifter, clear golden color with healthy head. Smells quite flowery like a farmhouse saison, yet still very hoppy. Reminiscent of SNís Hoptimum. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone ADDITIONAL: Having some more tonight, and damn...I really like the nose on this. Itís growing on me quickly even more so I had to bump the rating a little.

Beer has a hazy golden color with a medium head. Unique aroma of pine needles, citrus and hops. The taste has some floral notes with grapefruit and a touch of orange. Good finish.

Pour is a cloudy orange with a large white head. Aroma is a very nice dank citrus hop. Flavor is also a nice dank pine hop. Very hop forward and bitter. This is a great drinking IPA.

theisti (3258) - Leawood, Kansas, USA - OCT 10, 2014
12 oz bottle purchased as a single at the Whole Foods in Coral Springs, Florida. Best before 11/02/14. The pour is a hazed orange yellow golden with a well formed light tan head. The aroma is dank resin, rounded citrus fruit and floral. The taste is peanut shells initially, then opens to floral, bitter resin and finishes with grass. The palate is medium bodied with soft carbonation and dry floral grass finish. Smelled better than it tasted, perhaps not so fresh.

beerbastard (698) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - OCT 5, 2014
12oz bottle, pours copper amber, small head retention. Pine and citrus nose followed by some lite tropical fruit. Citrus bitterness up front, gives way to pine, citrus and lite pineapple flavors in the background. The bitterness continues to balance the mild caramel sweetness. Good IPA.

alexsdad06 (5562) - Ohio, USA - OCT 4, 2014
12 oz bottle. Pours a clear orange golden color with a medium sized off white head. The aroma and flavor have a pale, toasted malt base with some mild caramel sweetness, grassy, mild pine notes, some citrus character. Decent enough.
