Bottle via stateline. Poured into a snifter, amber colored orange, decent head. Danky aroma of hops on the nose. Reminds me of a "wet" hopped brew. Taste isnt bitter but still hoppy. Flowers, a little danky/wet hop taste. Well balanced, easy to drink. Body: Light, low/medium carbonation. Overall: Nice IPA, that I would drink/buy again. Thanks to Matt for the recommendation.

kathouse (1562) - Nevada, USA - OCT 17, 2013
Beautiful golden amber with a thick head. Lots of lacings. Pine and caramel aromas with bright citrus notes. Caramel body with moderate hop flavors and bitterness. Bitterness lasts thru the finish.

mikedR (1561) - Gilbert, Arizona, USA - APR 15, 2013
Respectable IPA. Pine and grapefruit aroma which carries over to flavor. Nice malt backbone (as foreshadowed by a beautiful copper color pour), coyly hidden under massive bitterness. As such, I disagree that this is a balanced IPA. It's West Coast style, old school, all the way. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

harrymel (1551) - Spokane, Washington, USA - NOV 18, 2013
Best by 03MAY13 Nice golden with a solid quilt of fine creamy foam. Smells classic west coast: resin, weed, pine, grapefruit and BO. Nice nose. Flavor is up front bitter with a malty (crackers, biscuit and some sweet english crystals) backbone. There is a good resin bitterness with a spicy flavor and some good midpoint purple kush. Medium on nearly full bodied with fine, moderated carb and a watery finish. Nice beer. I probably wont go out of my way for this one, but would drink on tap locally, particularly with a good spicy meal or pizza.

lamas (1548) - Washington DC, USA - FEB 2, 2013
Bottle. Best before: 04/20/13. A clear amber pour with a smallish beige head. A fine aroma of juicy oranges, grapefruits, faint pineapple, caramel, and pine trees. Relatively medium-bodied on the way down. Caramel, a light biscuity presence, and some hints of buttered bread upfront taste-wise. Grapefruits, oranges, and zesty citrus rinds are plentiful towards the end. The alcohol is well-hidden. Nicely balanced. Well-done. A standard for the style.
