Rich light copper coloured body with a thinnish tan head, about a centimetre tall. Aroma of pure new world hops with some passionfruit, orange zest, citrus, perfume and a bunch of light malt noticeable as well - fairly balanced. Medium-bodied; Strong assertive hops up front but not terribly bitter, but still packing the tropical fruit flavour, with some noticeable malt and earth showing as well near the end. Aftertaste shows some bitterness from the hops, but also a lot of perfume and some grass as well. Overall, a pretty well-balanced IPA, but nothing exceptional or really worth searching out - this was fine, but I was expecting a better West Coast IPA from this brewery. I sampled this 65 cL Green Flash-styled tall bottle purchased from Costco in Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia on 17-January-2016 for US$7,69 sampled at home in Washington after just returning from Europe a few minutes earlier on 27-March-2016.

Bottle hauled back from California by Colin, many thanks to him for that. A hazy golden/orange coloured pour with a medium white head on top. Hoppy, dank, citrus, grapefruit on the nose. Taste is much the same hoppy, dank, slightly malty, citrus, grapefruit and a little rye. Quite bitter but in a good way. A quality IPA from California. edwardbass (833) - Illinois, USA - MAR 19, 2016
Hazy yellow color with a really cream medium white head. Taste is resinous with citrus, though more resin on the aftertaste. Malt balance is perfect. Carbonation has some of the finest bubbles, and LOTS of them, that I’ve encountered, especially in an IPA. Dry, and super-easy drinking. Arayaga2 (2188) - portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 18, 2016
Slightly hazy yellow with minimal head. Aroma is where it shines: resinous with citrus and berry notes. Taste is same, but lighter, and dry with clean bitterness into the finish.

On tap. Light Amber color. Aroma is hops, citrus and some fruits. Taste is a nice combination of citrus, pine, hops and fruits. A good beer.

Pours a cloudy, white-yellow (like a wit), with minimal head. Aroma is full of a very strong grapefruit, with other florals and some grassiness. Flavor is big and bold--citrus/grapefruit, with loads of hop bite in the finish. Very bitter beer with a pretty dry finish. Top-notch. MetalNHopHead (1886) - Lincoln, Nebraska, USA - MAR 5, 2016
A single-hop IPA featuring Nelson Sauvin brewed with rye in the West Coast style? Yes to all of that, please. A golden orange pour with a snowy, rocky head. Grapefruit, orange, pineapple, mango, peach cream, lemongrass, and bread aromas. Flavors are complex yet beautifully cohesive. Lemon balm, spicy rye, tangerine, vinous grape, and tropical juice. Mouthfeel is thick, semi-dry, crisp, sticky, balanced. Just beautiful. thornecb (5874) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 4, 2016
Pours hazy gold into a shaker. Bright white head with medium retention recedes to coat surface. Tropical fruit and onion aromas. Soft with sweet and sour caramel upfront turning to earthly pumpernickel in the lasting finish. JBPortland (1542) - Hampton Roads, Virginia, USA - MAR 3, 2016
22oz bottle (Green Flash brewed version) pours slightly hazy pale orane with a finger of head. Nose is grassy orange, melon, tropical citrus. Taste is medium bitterness, crisp grassy tropical fruit, tangerine, citrus, white grape, melon, mango. Finishes dry, low malt, touch of toasted crust spice, medium bitter, nice soft mouthfeel with crisp tropical fruit, orange candy, white grape, and grassy citrus. Very good.

Pours hazy orange w light head.
Juicy nose with lots of grapes in it, and taste is just the same.
Juice, Juice, Juice and so easy drinkable. Has a sharp grape bitternes that just disappears as quick as it appears and ends up dwelling on a really light body and citrus fruits.
