crowderm (382) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - DEC 10, 2010
Nice golden pour, sticky white head. Aroma is a little subdued, caramel and citrus. Flavor is excellent. Runs the gamut in terms of hop profile, resiny, floral, citrus. Very nicely balanced. Good IPA.

ricke49 (17) - La Pine, Oregon, USA - APR 27, 2017
Billed as an IPA, yet right up there with some DIPAs in abv at 7.5. Near Perfect blend of hops, malt yeast, with just enough alcohol tingle to produce an incredibly tasty, approachable, yet fairly strong/full flavor IPA - and priced reasonably. Appreciate the user friendly, non- hieroglyphic, dating on bottle.

Aroma doesn't even wait for the bottle to be poured, it ascends immediately. Pine, citrusy, slight pungent aroma comes through the thick white head. Great aroma. Almost smells resinous. Golden enough to show it will have some malt. Medium body due to breast malt, but all hops from begging of sip to the end. Citrus, some pine, just clean bitter hops that follow the aroma exactly. Bitter enough for a ton of flavor but just holds from over done. Slightly warms. Great IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

znakomite piwo, wzorzec ipa, rześkie a zarazem głębokie, goryczka i owocowość, duża satysfakcja, gdyby nie absurdalnie wysoka cena byłby to sztos do wielokrotnego użytku, tymczasem jest to gratka do zaliczenia dla beergeekw.

pkbites (910) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 20, 2017
Tap @ Balzac, Milwaukee. Off orange color. Lots of citrus and grass with pine in both the nose and the flavor. Elevated alcohol content not detected. Probably one of the best IPAs made in America.

DonGregorio (272) - POLAND - MAR 18, 2017
Bottle. Unclear orange colour, rocky white head, ok lacing. Aroma of citrus, orange, pine, resin, grass. Taste is light sweet, medium+ bitter, citrus, orange, grapefruit, resin, light caramel. Long bitter finish. Medium body, soft to average carbonation. Just OK, not fresh enough.

geolgau (127) - Cluj-Napoca, ROMANIA - MAR 18, 2017
Pale amber color, hazy. Aroma is nice, full of citrus and very fruity. All the indications of a good IPA are here: pines, grassy hops. Taste follows the nose, with tropical fruits. Medium body and medium carbonation, a bit oily. Nice piney bitterness in the finish. Alcohol is masked under the bitterness. Very good!
