Like I.P.A.ís? Youíll love this! This beer has such flavor and drinability its amazing. Smell that citrus bouquet? That heady aroma of Orange peel and possibly corriander? Good dose of Piney hops that any I.P.A. should have. This may be my new favorite.

Bottle shared with tupalev & jerc - courtesy of tupalev. Hazy golden colour with a moderate white head. Big, hoppy aroma - lots of orange and pine - with some honey sweetness backing it up. Flavour is hoppy as hell, and undeniably unbalanced, but still damn good. Wonderful stuff!

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
A very refreshing IPA. Citrussy, acidic orange nose, with a touch of rose. Flavor hits up front hoppy but settles down with nice woody and tannin notes. Girlfriend says it has a taste of rose ice cream. Good stuff.

had a bottle once and wasnít too impressed. then had it at a bar once on draft. best draft pint iíve had outside a brewery/brewpub. golden brown color, small but thick head. not as fruity as usual IPAís; though hoppy, more carmel/woody flavor. will give the 6pack another try.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a light hazy orange/gold. Small head diminishes to a thin ring rather quickly leaving a bit of lacing. Aroma is piney and citric and very inviting. Flavour is piney, grapefruit, some pleasant sweetness. I expected a more bitter finish I suppose. But the great aroma combines with the initial flavor and smooth, rich mouthfeel to make one want another immediately.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
This beer offers an aroma of hops infused with butterscotch. It is a cloudy gold in color with a decent white head. This beer enters the mouth with force as it introduces the hops to the tongue. As the bitterness subsides it fades to a smooth butterscotch taste that lingers.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pours a nice, golden brown color. Small white had with little to no lacing. Fruity aroma. Oranges, grapefruit. Some yeast as well maybe even a slight piney smell in there as well. Bitter bite right away. Nice and thick. Gra[pefruit was the first thought about the taste of this beer. More citrus in there some pine flavors as well. Finishes with a littel bitter of a aftertaste. Good, but not my favorite.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A VERY good American rendition of the IPA... had the citrusy and spicy green hop flavor, a good backbone of malt, slightly sweet, excellent head, and finished with a bit of a green hop bite.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle. A great IPA. Orange/copper with a slight haze and thin creamy white head. Aroma is not quite citrus, but more orange/orange peel with herbal hoppiness. Well-balanced flavor tips over into a nicely bitter hop finish. Smooth and slightly crisp mouth feel. Not as good from the bottle as it is on tap, but still one of the best IPAís out there in my book.
