From a can poolside at the Tuscony Suites Las Vegas. Fruity aromas of all apricot and cane sugar. Cloudy orangey gold with a quicky disappearing head. Flavos start off nice and floral and grassy but end a tad too bitter for my taste. Not bad but not my favorite.

Has all the qualities I look for in a good IPA, just a little too bitingly bitter to be one of my favorites.

Pours a amber/ orange tint and slight haze. with a thick head of foam that slowly fell to to some chunky lace and nice legs too. Nose is grapefruit, pine and grass. A great big whiff of bread but then the malt disappears for a minute behind some herbal and grassy dank. Taste is delightful with ample malts, lots of oily piney hops, a little bit of sour grapefruit. Bitterness fades fast in the aftertaste as this one leaves smooth and dry. Very nice.

Bottle. Slightly hazy orange golden, small white head. Very minor nose, less hoppy than expected taste. Medium body, average carbonation.

Pours a cloudy orange with some sediment and huge white pillowy head leaving great lacing. Aroma is pretty standard fare with citrus and a hint of buttery malts. Taste is.... Iím not sure here. Itís a bit too buttery, malty, and tart . Almost like itís too old, maybe? Maybe itís better fresh - but thereís just too many better IPAs out there to take another risk on this one.

seymour (1659) - Maplewood, Missouri, USA - JUL 2, 2015
Shared from cans into Duvel goblets, thanks Scott! It poured a mostly-clear golden colour, some chill haze, with sudsy white foam which quickly dissipated. Fairly neutral grainbill, just a hint of caramel sweetness, definitely a hops-forward balance. Strong hoppy bitterness, flavour and aroma. Struck me a mostly a Columbus which cuts right through anything, contributing resiny character too, but supplemented with some other fruitier and citrusier varieties. Light-medium body, strong carbonation, well-concealed alcohol, dry finish with lingering hoppy aftertastes. Good stuff.

Would have guessed this was a weak imperial ipa instead of a strong regular ipa. Very nice malt and smooth.

Poured from the 6-pack of bottles, nice dark orange with a mock turtle neck white collar. This is probably the 7th or 8th six pack of this beer i have purchased and enjoyed but have never gotten around to rating it. It just goes down too fast, parties start, visitors come over, good things happen, so I saved one in the back of the fridge. Itís really good beer, Iím going back to the store for more.

2015-07-30. Orange-amber body with a small frothy white head. 3+ Aroma is muted, moderate hop character, light resin. Flavour is moderately bitter throughout, lightly resiny green hops. Average bodied palate, good carbonation. 3+ Okay, a bit mild overall. Bottle from Ye Olde Spirit Shop, PA.

I feel like this IPA deserves better ratings. So I score it a little higher than the current average. This is a well balanced IPA with great flavor. I stumbled upon this little gem and decided to give it a try, glad I did. I thoroughly enjoy this brew and will purchase again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
