Cloudy amber color with small lasting head, taste plenty of hops, malt, grapefruit, bitter finish. Flavour is kinda bland though. Ok pale ale, but couldnt drink a lot of it.

Pleasant aroma. Nice straight forward bitter hops taste with some spice and citrus. Taste follows the aroma with the addition of some sweet fruity notes. Nice medium palate as well. As others have said, not a beginner IPA, but not the most complex. Worth trying and would make a good go to IPA.

Aroma is piney hops. Taste is piney hops as well. Not a bad beer, though fairly simple and straightforward. Not much balance or complexity.

high_on_hops (613) - Burlingame, California, USA - AUG 17, 2014
On tap. Pours a clear amber with a white head and lots of lacing. It has an aroma that smells like raw hops with lots of line and some citrus. The flavor is raw pine and citrus hops up front with a long, bitter finish over a medium body. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

minutemat (1569) - Ford, Shropshire, ENGLAND - AUG 17, 2014
330ml bottle from Bottledog. Pours amber. Massive resinous hop aroma continuing to the taste with bucketloads of pine, resin, tropical fruit & malts with a restrained bitter finish. Lovely stuff.

Tap at Dino’s Sports Lounge. Pint glass. Great lacing. Copper, maybe deep golden. Hop hits you on the nose. Malt undertone comes through as you begin to drink it. Heavy hop presence in the middle and especially at the finish. Reminds me of standard MN hoppy IPAs. I enjoy it. The hop devil went down to PA and beat Johnny this time.

BlackHaddock (3645) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - AUG 12, 2014
Bottle in Orange County while on holiday at my daughters: 8th July 2014. Looked good, amber with an orange hue to it’s body the head an orangey beige colour. Hops all the way here, and I liked them. Piney in nature but with a malty undertone ensuring the beer is not too bitter. It was up against Anchor Liberty Ale and Ballast Point Big Eye in my mini-tasting and this beer won hands down in my eyes. Very, very drinkable: in fact I had the whole four pack while staying in Cali (plus plenty of other beers too of course).
