Draft. A hazy dark golden beer with a lazing orangey head. The aroma is sweet malty with notes of caramel as well as a lighter note of citrusy hops. The flavor is sweet with strong notes of grass and grapefruit from the hops, leading to a dry bitter and grassy finish.

Bier Temple, Amsterdam. Bottle. Almost clear amber beer, big fluffy pale cream colour head. Palate is airy and lightly crisp. Semi dry. Airy malts, trace of caramel. Hops are minty floral spice with a little dried orange. Light semi dry finish. More of a reasonably hopped amber than an out and out IPA.

fiulijn (21022) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 25, 2012
Draught at St. Augustine’s, Vancouver
Hazy light amber color, with creamy head. The aroma is quite anonymous for an IPA. The body is quite strong, the mouthfeel is smooth, but the flavor is stale, some malt and old wet cereals; it has a strong bitterness level, but no real hop qualities.
Boring.

mcberko (18583) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 23, 2012
On tap at the Alibi Room, pours a hazy golden orange with a medium off-white head. Nose if full of buttery, floral hops, with some dry earthy notes. Flavour is the same, with dry, bitter, earthy hops, a subtle floral kick and just enough malt to back, though still quite unbalanced is it has a noticeable astringency. Decent, middle-of-the-road IPA.
