It’s very middle of the road IPA, surprised at the high ratings, strong bitterness, crisp, long grassy finish. foyle (421) - Wyoming, USA - MAY 27, 2015
Poured from 12 oz bottle into pint glass.
Appearance: pours a 3" cream colored head that drops slowly with lots of lacing. Color is a cloudy orange with some mild streaming carbonation.
Aroma: orange and pine are dominate, some bread dough in the background.
Mouthfeel: medium bodied, sticky with a mostly dry finish and some alcohol warming in the throat.
Flavor: citrus rind, tangerine and pine dominate the flavor along with white bread malts and some raisin.
Overall: a well balanced and tasty IPA. Darkmagus82 (2302) - - MAY 19, 2015
Poured from bottle into a pint glass
Appearance – The beer pours a hazed golden amber color with a huge head of billowy white foam. The head has a fantastic staying power, only very slowly fading to leave tons of foamy lace on the sides of the glass.
Smell – The aroma is heaviest of a grapefruit citrus smell mixed with a moderate showing of some pine. Along with these aromas comes smells of a cracker malt like smell and a little bit of an herbal aroma.
Taste – The taste begins with a with a semi-sweet malt flavor, being a mix of a bready and crackery taste combined with a little bit of a caramel flavor. Upfront there is also a bit of a grapefruit hop, which remains throughout the taste. As the taste advances some of the caramel sweetness fades, only to be replaced by some flavors of orange an light fruit and more hop flavors of a pine and earthy nature. In the end, the later hop flavors dominate the hop profile and with the mix of modest sweetness, malt, and hop, one is left with a somewhat drier, and more lightly hopped IPA flavor to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the average side for a brew of 5.5% with a carbonation level that is on the average to higher side. The average side of the carbonation and body are a good blend for the hop and the lighter malt flavors of the bread and make for a nice easy drinking IPA overall.
Overall – An alright IPA, but a nothing too exceptional overall.

Real side of tongue bitterness. Doesn't have a strong aroma. Has a lingering bitterness which I find unusual but unique.

Draught at the Bridgeport Brewery Co, Portland, OR.
Slightly cloudy golden colour with a small white head.
Mild sweet fruity hops, mild apricot notes and sweetness in the aroma.
The flavour is sourness, bitterness and dryness. Very unusual IPA flavour. Intriguing.

35.5cl bottle on 20/04/15 in Hong Kong. Cloudy orange amber colour with a nice off-white head. Aroma of malt, caramel, and fruit.Light body and medium carbonation. Malt, caramel and bittersweet fruit flavour - slight flavours of spice and lightly hopped. Not bad, but needed more bite in th he hops, Sarlacc83 (2287) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 24, 2015
A: Cloudy burnt gold, huge white head,
N: Big citrus - especially grapefruit, peppercorns, cherry taffy, a bit of onion, biscuit, very grassy and floral.
T: Moderately bitter, lightly sweet.
M: Medium body, creamy carbonation, no alcohol presence.
O: A mostly bland IPA. The hops aren’t as assertive as the label would like to believe, and this is more tick than an enjoyable drink. rproff78 (177) - - MAR 28, 2015
