COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Clean, crisp and refreshing. A tribute to our friends at Indie Hops, this amazingly balanced beer is bursting with the finest hops Oregon has to offer: Nugget, Centennial, Meridian, Crystal and Horizon. Renowned for his IPAs, Chad just raised the bar.

69 IBU. Not bad. Not great. Poured from a 12oz can into a frozen pint glass. golden color, very transparent. very little head. Slightly hopy but no real lasting maltiness or bitterness. Not a bad IPA. But definitely doesn’t stand out either.

eManu (495) - Kuala Lumpur & Brussels, BELGIUM - AUG 29, 2015
From a 33cl bottle, pours a hazy amber color with an off-white head that did not stay long. Aroma is nice, strong caramel and floral hops. Flavors of nuts, straw, grass, hops, yeast. Cream in mouth, light sweetness and light bitterness. Medium grassy hops finish in mouth. a nice pleasant beer.

beer-yum (879) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - AUG 26, 2015
Prominent citrus pine aroma in a hazy golden amber pour. Flavour is a tasty fruity malt with just enough hopiness to prevent it becoming sweet. Finish is much the same (fruity) and nicely sustained. Probably lacking the hop forward balance expected of an IPA but a most enjoyable brew anyway.

echudy (89) - Massachusetts, USA - AUG 10, 2015
Very malty scent, with just a hint of hops. Tastes slightly bitter, with the same malt forward flavor, with little hops. Golden color with a bit of cloudiness.

patricks110 (2122) - Alberta, CANADA - JUL 27, 2015
A very decent IPA. Wasn’t quite sold on it but it has a decent malt base to back up moderately heavy hops. Not so resinous and sticky as alot of Oregon IPAs. Light sweet toasted caramel malts are a nice presence with solid but not lingering bitterness.

ben4321 (4829) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JUL 10, 2015
Location: 12 oz can from Winooski Beverage, 7/10/15

Aroma: The nose is fairly hoppy, pine/resin on pale malts and a bit of caramel/toffee
Appearance: It pours a darker orange color with a clean off-white head and some fairly heavy lace
Flavor: Tastes of bitter hops, bit more citrus than the aroma, still lots of pine, fairly malty as well
Palate: The body is medium, it has a soft carbonation, and a long, fairly dry close
Overall Impression: Solid IPA. Definitely on the bitter side. Not a top of style example, but certainly a flavorful enough offering.

This IPA in a can is a little more on the malty side. This costs $1.21 from Walmart. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bulk_Carrier (2781) - Final Resting Place, Vermont, USA - JUN 28, 2015
This was poured into a nonic pint glass. The appearance was a hazy burnt orange color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within less than about forty seconds. The smell started off with a burnt caramel malt and a slight toasty effect leading into some crisp citrus to piney hops. The taste was mostly sweet with a slim bitterness running into the toasty malts. Caramel to lingering citrus (bitter) hoppy aftertaste leads into a semi-dry finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a decent sessionability about it. Carbonation finishes decent as an IPA but does have a sly sweetness rolling over my mouth. Overall, for an IPA coming from the west coast, I’d say, hmmm....if you’re going to send to Vermont, either send better stuff or fresher, no need to seek this out again.

Pours cloudy orange/golden with a medium sized off-white head, good lacing. Aroma is floral, grassy and caramel. Taste is floral, earthy, malty with a pine resin, dry finish
A nice IPA

Very enjoyable ipa, underrated on here in my opinion. Nice mouthfeel, slight haze, good hopping.
