COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Don’t let this one get away. A slight hint of citrus from the hops makes this India Pale Ale as refreshing as a Bimini sea breeze. It’s a catch worthy of a rollicking fish tale. Definitely a keeper.

tmoreau (4678) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - NOV 21, 2017
Shared 12 oz. cans poured to snifters displaying a clear, deep orangey/gold color, a presentable layer of off white froth, with foamy spots & streaks of lacing. The nose was floral, yet a bit medicinal, with sweetness, and esters as pit fruit & citrus. Medium bodied, with good carbonation, the flavor notes initially showed some similarity to the aroma's, but then the bitterness overwhelmed any consistent flow between the two by being quite earthy, rind-like, and highly aggressive, especially combined with the heat from the alcohol.

Salian (146) - Sale, Cheshire, ENGLAND - AUG 20, 2017
Packs a punch. Floral notes and toasted malt combine with big hops to produce a huge tasting IPA. Quite fizzy, but maybe that was the can.

Cybercat (6220) - Georgia, USA - JUL 13, 2017
Can. Pours clear golden with a fair eggshell head. Aroma features resiny hops, zesty citrus, and a malty foundation. Flavor presents all of those but with a bit more hops. Mouthfeel offers OK fizz and body - maybe due to this being a can. A decent IPA, so go ahead, twist and shout.

12oz can. Hazy gold colour with tiny white head. Citrus pine hops wheat malt bitter finish

3.5
Chudwick (3393) - Taylor Mill, Kentucky, USA - JUN 15, 2017
Canned on 5/18/17 - nose is floral and nail polish remover. Sip is good at first with kick of citrus and then a diacetyl kick. Gets better and a little sweeter as I acclimate. Pine and resin eventually. Every sip is unique. Kinda thin but boozy. Wife says that it’s just really hoppy.

ttutony (945) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 5, 2017
Caramel malt with some piney and resinous hop character in the aroma and flavor profile.

theisti (4221) - Kansas, USA - JUN 1, 2017
12 oz can purchased at Tradewinds Liquors in Key Largo, Florida. 01/28/17 stamped on the bottom of can. Probably should have checked that date at the store. The pour is a slight haze orange golden with a well formed 1 inch off white head. Nice splotches of lace. The aroma is toasty caramel malt along with floral bitterness. The taste is the cracker malt caramel, floral, some grass, hint of pine and then ends with some dry bitterness. The palate is medium bodied with soft natural carbonation and the floral mineral bitter finish. Pretty solid despite age.

hotstuff (5273) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - MAR 22, 2017
This canned beer’s appearance consist of a small beige head that is mostly lasting, hazy amber body and no lacing. The aroma is citrus hops, hint of pine hops, fruity, earthy, and caramel malt. The flavor presents moderate bitterness, citrus hops, hint of pine hops, fruity, earthy, semi-sweet, and caramel malt. The mouthfeel is moderate-lively carbonation and this beer is medium bodied. This is an easy drinking IPA that is just so-so for the style. It needs more abrupt taste for the style and has a light bitter finish.

schoolofspool (25) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 16, 2017
Canned 01/03/2017 - Awful. I haven’t reviewed anything here since I was still green behind the ears. I’ve had some good ones and some bad ones, but not many undrinkable ones. This belongs in the undrinkable category.

The fact that this example is less than two weeks old speaks volumes. Perhaps if I could taste ANYTHING behind the diacetyl this would graduate to forgettably bad. Awful.
