The Etruscan (704) - Tuscany, ITALY - MAR 26, 2016
Light beige creamy head. Amber colour. Aroma is hoppy with fruity (apricot, peach and tangerine) notes. Flavor is moderately malty with fruity (apricot and tangerine) and hoppy tones, ending in an hoppy finish. Medium bodied. Bule (2254) - California, USA - FEB 21, 2016
22oz bottle pours a pale brown color with a lot of frothy head. Yeasty tasting. Medium hop bitterness that lingers. Lots of malt.

Bottle. Clear deep amber color, white head. Nice fruity aroma. Taste is bittersweet fruit. Very nice. ANZUShophunter (571) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - DEC 18, 2015
From bottle in less-than-appropriate flanged glass in room at Hilton Hawaiian Village. In spite of this, it was quite a smooth, enjoyable drop. Cloudy amber with fleeting head. More creamy malt than hop-driven putting it in the minority of the IPA community. Still, it was quite nice.

22 oz bottle. From a supermarket in Honolulu, HI.
Clear amber color with a tiny grayish white head.
Piney hops, moderate bitterness, sweet malt, dried fruits and sugar in the aroma.
The flavor is sweet fruity hops, canned fruits, pineapple, herbs, moderate bitterness and sweet malt. Balanced. Oh boy I wish I had this fresh!

Pours clear orange color with a small head. Nice floral hoppy aroma with tropical fruits, some resin and pine. Flavor is fruity and somewhat sweet, resinous hoppy and slightly malty too, some pineapple on the background. Bitter palate. Nice, though this would be excellent more fresh.

(bottle) hazy, bright orange colour with a small, white head; aroma of honey, tropical fruit; balanced flavour with a long, medium bitter finish Boutip (6533) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 1, 2015
Bottle: Poured a light orange color ale with a nice foamy head with good retention and some light lacing notes. Aroma of citrus hops notes with dry malt base. Taste is also dominated by citrus hops notes with light bitter notes. Body is about average with good carbonation. Old school IPA with maybe a little shortage on the hops flavours side of things.
