Pours a translucent yellow into the glass, with a wispy head that leaves wispy lacing. The nose is of mixed tropical citrus, with light malts and sour, citric hops abundant. Flavors follow the aroma profile, with tangerine, orange, lemon-lime and finishes with an assertive piney-spruce hop bitterness. The mouthfeel is active with carbonation, accompanying a medium-full body and complex, satiating palate. Overall, InBev or not, this is a very nice citric take on the traditional West Coast IPA. Kudos! ’Nuff said. italianjohn (3113) - Penndel, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 15, 2017
Pale golden pour with a thin white head and light sticky lacing .... aroma of chewy caramel malt, piney and citrusy hops, grapefruit and orange .... taste is of piney hops and bitter rindy grapefruit with orange and chewy caramel malts .... bitter and rindy with a dry bitter hop and dank resinous hops ... finish is dry hopped with lingering caramel malts and bitter grapefruit .... solid west coast IPA migwell (365) - Massachusetts, USA - APR 6, 2017
AB InBev? Could this association prejudice my judgement? More than likely. Perhaps I’ll recuse myself... but no. Aroma of crystal malt and citrus. Poured into a nonic, looks fairly nondescript, yellow/orange. It is a bit cloudy with sparse tiny bubbles arising. The flavor, to me, is sweet malt forward heading rapidly to a mild but lingering hop bitterness, there’s citrus and pine involved as well. Nothing here captures my imagination or leads me to want another. Ever. In the immensely crowded field of IPA’s, this one can get lost. So long. Derek881 (1272) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 3, 2017
Poured from a bomber bottle into a pint glass to drink. The beer had a mostly cloudy straw-amber color with a medium sized foamy white head with average retention and good lacing and cling. Its aroma featured prominent citrus notes with some notes of pine, spices, and grass. The taste was a pleasant bitter mix of citrus and grainy flavors with lighter fruit and spice flavors. It had a lively highly carbonated body with a big mouthfeel and a dry body for a nice feel on the palate. hman43 (1540) - Pinehurst, North Carolina, USA - APR 1, 2017
It pours clear golden orange. It has a slick, syrupy feel to it.There is some caramel and peach flavors with a moderate bitterness and hints of peach.

On tap at Spaggo. Pours a clear golden orange with a near white head that dissipates slowly to the edges. Aroma has a combination of sweet grains and pine with a bit of grass underlying. Flavor is similar with sweet grains and pine with some grass backing. BREWMUSKCLES (2673) - New Jersey, USA - FEB 27, 2017
pretty powerful in flavor and body. fruity and grapefruit pith it is caustic and full in body. good frothy carbonation recessed where it should be. some funky wood in caramel wafts through. palate is a 4 and then some. yehchiscott (3) - Taoyuan, TAIWAN - FEB 9, 2017 does not count
Like it! Fresh hops , some citrus notes and a hint of sweet malt in the aroma. Light golden color with a thin white head. Sweet malt up front covered up quickly with a piney hop bitterness. Sweet caramel is overbalanced with bitterness from hops...but not too off-putting. Hops heavy with pine flavors. Finish is dry with nice bitterness...echo’s throughout the finish. uhclem (428) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - FEB 9, 2017
Bought this bomber on sale at my local boozeria. Nicely done. Aroma was a little subtle, but that could have just been me. sonnycheeba (5970) - Federal Hill, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - FEB 7, 2017
Bottle. Pours hazy gold. Aroma and flavor are citrus and piney hops, pale malt, faint toast, very faint caramel, and very soft floral notes. Medium body.
