Maris (1440) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - FEB 9, 2017
From a 355ml bottle on 9/2/2017. Pours an opaque medium golden with a small head. The nose features muted fruity hops. Features a light caramel malt backbone, some light sweet citrus fruit, a touch of honey, and a moderate, slightly herbal, lingering hop bitterness. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Okay but pretty subdued and uninspiring for the style.

Nice color, fits right in the classic Ipa category, excellent pairing for peanuts! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

googleimage83 (112) - Ontario, CANADA - JAN 31, 2017
Slightly brownish gold pour, huge creamy head. Fruity, juicy nose - pineapple, orange, pine overload, big malt foundation. Taste isnt quite at the same level - hop character is relatively earthy, not as citrusy as the nose. Sugary malt backbone, slightly chalky finish. Slightly disappointed, but its passable.

smroush (244) - Michigan, USA - JAN 28, 2017
Aromas dominated by the hops - pine and spruce, maybe a slight touch of orange. Some bread notes from the malt. Color is a fairly light amber, but a bit on the orangish side. Head is small to medium with a white to off-white color. Taste is fairly dry and bitter. Palate is clean and crisp with slightly lively carbonation. A medium length finish with a lingering bitterness. Overall a fairly good IPA. I like the clean, crisp, hoppy aroma, taste and mouthfeel. However personally I prefer a more malt balance - a little more one dimensional than Id like.

KevinReddirt (104) - Midland, Texas, USA - JAN 28, 2017
One of the better offerings from Midland On Tap tasting at the CAF. It was served a complimentary dark yellow and possessed a great, long lasting eggshell foam. Scent of grass and pine. Taste was a good slug of hoppiness with an earthy spruce. Sort of a 90 Minute light. Good but no world changer.

tezarak (113) - Lengnau, SWITZERLAND - JAN 28, 2017
UPDATED: FEB 12, 2017 Poured at home from a 12fl.oz. bottle (assuming 33cl) into a tulip glass. Orange-brown with a moderate, but slightly transparent, haze. Butter, caramel and very slight hay flavours with weak hops. Full bodied and oily, creamy texture. Carbonation is well suited to texture - slightly low, but matches the smoothness of the beer. Bitterness is, unfortunately, quite below my expectations.

Bottle. Bottled May 2010; Drank Jun 2011 - Orangey Gold in colour. Very Fruity; citrus orange, peaches. Hoppy; piney oily resinous hops. Malty; solid malt backbone. Sweet citrus fruity with a dry mildly bitter hoppy finish. Nice balance. Very drinkable. Nice IPA! (2011-06-25)

wombat23 (1089) - Texas, USA - JAN 23, 2017
Shared 12 oz. bottle. Clear gold color, white head. Aroma of citrus, floral notes. Taste is citrus, pine, malt, yeast. Not as flavorful as a lot of IPAs, but simple and clean.

darbeer75 (764) - Round Rock, Texas, USA - JAN 22, 2017
Aroma: citrusy and hoppy; Appearance: clear orange pour with thin white head that dissipates slowly; Taste: follows nose; has some complexity; Palate: medium body with long, lightly bitter finish; Overall: pretty good, but not worthy of such a high average score. But would get again.

laminarman (27) - - JAN 22, 2017
Golden and nice appearance with good lacing, from bottle. Slightly cloudy but fine. To me the hops are decidedly laced with pine notes and there is a slight malt presence on the nose. Not as enticing as I thought it would be, but its very good and clean. Nice palate with good balance, fine finish. Nothing spectacular but I could drink this ALL day long. Fine to me.
