Dank hops and a whole lotta citrus. Orange, grapefruit, pineapple. A classic West Coast (San Diego) style IPA to me. Less pine and more citrus than some of its brethren.

Rating #2763 - 2016.08.29 - Can from BB - Pours a golden amber with a fluffy white head. Aroma is tropical punchbowl - lemon, pineapple, grapefruit. Some NZ style glory here in this SD IPA - some tropical fruit sweetness and some assertive bitterness make this work wonders. Glorious.

Nice old school Cali IPA with a bit of tropical fruit forward hops thrown in. Pours a bright orange with a huge, sticky off white head. The nose is bright, floral and tropical with a bunch of citrus hop notes. Malts are quite light with some mild caramel malts. Bitterness is moderately heavy with a nice punch of sticky resin, grapefruit zest and pine needles. Bitterness lingers for quite a while.

(Belching Beaver Tap Takeover) Served in a 12oz tulip glass at Beer Revolution in Edmonton pouring a slightly hazy golden color with a small white head leaving only a few spots of lacing on the glass. Aroma is tropical fruits with cereal grains and citrus. Taste is a citrus hop bitterness with a tropical fruity and malty sweetness. Light to medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Overall, a decent IPA that suits the style well, while also being balanced and tasty.

Bouteille de 650 ml du Canada Craft Beer Club. Au nez, on sent tout de suit le houblonnage à cru avec des effluves de gazon, de pamplemousse, de résine de pin et d'un peu de fruits tropicaux. Une bonne mousse crémeuse un doigt, recouvre un liquide doré et orangé. La mousse est persistante. Le liquide est flou avec de petites particules en suspension. Une entrée de bouche un peu terreuse. Les houblons ressortent moins qu'a l'olfactif. Fin de bouche à l'amertume tranchante et résineuse. Houblons plutôt gazonneux à tendance résineux mais sans beaucoup de fruité. Très cote ouest comme IPA. En général les tons de gazon dominent avec de légères notes de pamplemousse, un peu de citron et un petit aspect terreux. J'en ai déjà gouté beaucoup comme celle là. Rien de très épatant ici. Plutôt dans la tradition.

from CraftGallery; canned - cloudy dark orange beer with a little foam left; very fruity aroma of passion fruit and citrus; hints of caramel; juicy and very tasty; lively palate; full-bodied, well-integrated bitterness; quite dry and long juicy fruity finish with more clean notes of passion fruits and citrus; light sweetness - superb

650ml brown bottle. Hazy yellow, thick whipped creamy white cap with thick lacing. Nose - zest of grapefruit and orange peel. Taste - grass, grapefruit, passionfruit, citrus zest, dank, pine, earth some juiciness. Bitter, clean malt. Lots of carbonation. Lots of hop flavours going on. Solid.

Spab (4234) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 24, 2017
650 ml bottle from Canada Craft Club. Pours a murky dull golden colour with good-sized white head. Aroma is lots of pine resin, citrus zest and light grains. Flavour is solid piney and moderately citric hops with some straw and grains. Average plus body. Nice.

Solid US style IPA. Hazy pale orange with off white foam that laces and stays in the glass. Clean, subtle tropical hop aroma with solid malt to balance. Big round mouthfeel. Nice sweetness countered by well judged hops. A hop forward beer without the huge bitterness of some of the beers in the style. Very, very good; a superbly balanced beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
