Can. A hazy, dark golden beer with a small, dense, off-white head leaving some curtains. The aroma is rather piney and grapefruity, with some malty notes in the back. Bread hints. It’s full-bodied, smooth and pleasantly carbonated, semi-dry. Nice bitterness in the flavor, some lightly bready malts in the back, and pine cones and grapefruit up front. Lasting finish with some orange zest, grapefruit and bitterness. A bit sweeter than I prefer, but sure a nice one. 150618 Nickls (2617) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - MAY 26, 2015
Tap. Coppery light orange hue. Caramel, toasted malt, citrusy hops, and some grassiness as well in the aroma. Flavor is similar with some slight bitter grassiness at first, toast, some caramel sweetness, and slight citrus. Lighter to medium body and a little slick. altonbrownd (5897) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - MAY 9, 2015
Can from Chevy Chase Wine and Beer. Golden body with poppy texture. Nose is hoppy, crisp. Taste is hops and citrus and fruits. Nice and smooth texture. Enjoyable. tillmac62 (768) - Gaffney, South Carolina, USA - MAY 7, 2015
BBD 5/15. Pours a hazy medium amber (copper). Outstanding head volume, world class lacing and retention.
Quite nice nose of citrus hops with a subtle pine hop background over a subtle caramel.
Almost light medium body with a texture that is somewhat smooth. Superbly carbonated with a nice effervescence from the middle on.
The outstanding flavor profile is intense, a bit complex and very well balanced. It begins with cascade hops (a blended citrus and pine flavor with a hint of spice). In the middle a balancing sweetness emerges against a mild bitterness with a slant towards grapefruit. The finish is a lingering rind like mild bitterness.

12oz can. Pours a medium amber with an off white medium head. Citrus and pine hops aroma with some caramel malt. Taste is of citrus and pine hops and some caramel malt. Palate is a medium body, crisp mouth feel with good carbonation. Finish is citrus pine and some herbal hops that linger a bit with some caramel malt for balance. Final thoughts a good drinking brew.

bottled - purchased in Roanoke VA - Good hop flavor and slight sweetness. Nice hoppy aroma and coppery color. Very good and drinkable. lusikka (7833) - Tampere, FINLAND - APR 2, 2015
330 ml bottle. Pours an orange amber colour with a white head. Aroma of floral hops, resin and some nuttiness. Flavour of biscuit, herbal bitterness, heavy sweetness, resin and grass. Medium bodied. Dry, lingering bitter finish. A bit too sweet. Jarastlad (55) - Arlon, BELGIUM - MAR 26, 2015
12 FL. OZ. bottle from Miorge-Mihoublon, Arlon, Belgium.
Aroma is not as powerful as I thought it’d be but focuses on citrus, lemongrass. It pours a nice copper color with little carbonation and no head.
Taste is a classical IPA with some citrus notes, lemongrass and some pine resins. Bitterness is long and linfering. Finish is quite dry
Idiosynkrasie (8209) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - MAR 19, 2015
355ml bottle. Barely clear amber colour with small to average, thick, frothy to creamy, fairly lasting, minimally lacing, white head. Cautious, piney, hoppy aroma, biscuit malty background, even more cautious citrusy hints of lemon and sweaty resin. Taste is slightly sweet biscuity malty, a touch of caramel and peanut, dry, piney hoppy overtones; long lasting finish, smooth, soft, silky, mouth-filling palate. Very nice composition, but sadly a bit anaemic concerning the aromatic profile. Maxbier (1000) - Maryland, USA - MAR 12, 2015
From a can. Slightly hazy copper color with off-white head. Lemon citrus pine aroma. Nice caramel malt palette well balanced by a piney hop bitter finish. Perfectly on style American pale ale.
