carboloader (674) - Houston, Texas, USA - MAY 16, 2014
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.

trveboozer (3) - The Desert, Arizona, USA - APR 10, 2017 does not count
Bottle of delightful surprise. Tasted a bit more like a hefeweizen than an IPA, but delicious none the less. Piney hops, smooth taste, no bitter aftertaste. Would definitely drink this one again.

Very interesting interpretation. Floral aroma and flavors dominate with a nice hoppy bitterness to balance it out.

johndoughty (5311) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAR 16, 2017
Can. Slightly hazy yellow appearance. Fruity aroma on opening which continues to develop into a lovely fruity flavour. Medium body and left lots of lacing. My first from this brewery and a pleasant introduction.

imdownthepub (14229) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 28, 2017
Canned, 355ml from BeerMerchants of Kent. Gold with white head. There is a bready, doughy, malty character to this from the start, doughy then a resinous hop note. The hop becomes a little intense later with a tropical fruit note. Not tremendously well balanced for me but okay.

mcberko (16651) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 12, 2017
On tap at Belching Beaver, pours a clear blonde with a medium white head. Aroma brings out piney hops, some dankness and dry biscuity malt. Flavour is along the same lines, with piney hops, some dank notes and dry biscuity malt. Nice balanced, with a dry and dank finish. Solid IPA.

gyllenbock (8692) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - FEB 8, 2017
On tap at Belching, North Park, San Diego. Golden with a white head. Hoppy with citrus, some pineapple, peach and caramel. The body was medium and the finish bitter. Felt quite soft and easy to drink.
