Slight cloud dark gold pour with decent white head. Nose of citrus, tropical fruit, and some melon with a touch of malt. Flavor has a bigger bite of hops than the nose leads. Nice balance of malt to hop.

Slightly cloudy, nice balance of hops and malt. Slight bitter aftertaste. This was from a can but I’ve also had it on tap at the brewery and all their beer is good.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours hazy orange, without head and no lacing. Aroma is malts, pine and citrus. Taste has a malty character, with a good fruit balance (grapefruit, mango), resin and a hoppy finish. Tasty and medium bodied. Very enjoyable IPA, more British than West Coast style.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 ounce can from hayduke that we had together via facebook chat. A big off white head leaves a layer of thick lace. The beer is cloudy honey golden. A well balanced aroma with pale malts and complex fruits. The flavor is also balanced but fruit leads by a nose. Tropical and citrus flavors. Something like applesauce, oranges, tangerines, and somehow a Saison feel to it but generally a classic west coast IPA. Very easy to drink but it might not be very fresh.

Jaune brillante avec un petit col blanc. L’arôme du pin. En bouche c’est une bonne IPA résineux et bien équilibré, mais assez standard pour le région.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Can at JFK while waiting to depart. Pours rich orange-gold with a frothy, white head. The nose has lots of juicy, ripe citrus fruits, mango, melon, some gooey pine. Medium sweet flavour with a good, sturdy malt foundation, more gooey pine, mild earthy bitterness, ripe citrus, tropical fruits. Medium bodied with average carbonation, and rather smooth texture. Nicely resinous on the finish, with notes of lightly toasted malts, bread, melon, orange rind, mango. A good, sturdy all-around IPA. Solid work.
