Draft at the brewpub. Pours clear bright amber with a fizzy off white head. Tastes like caramel, dry grapefruit, citrus hops, toasted malt, and resin. Medium body and carbonation. Smells like citrus hops, toasted malt, caramel, grapefruit, and a hint of vinegar.

Mep3222 (1596) - East Greenbush, New York, USA - MAY 18, 2015
Malty IPA with primarily piney hops. Bit of a soapy odd finish in addition the the piney hop finish. Unfiltered "dirty" feel to it. Drinkable but nothing really stands out about this IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Standard but clean ipa. Burnt orange. Floral and piney light nose. Pretty solid biscuit body with bite at the end.

3.8
kathouse (1926) - LAS VEGAS, Nevada, USA - NOV 26, 2014
Now this beer is one of the better Bristol beers. 3 "C" hop flavor and aroma are well balanced by the malts. Biscuity with a moderate bitterness. Finish is slight citrus. Could have another of these.

3.7
DocJitsu (2013) - Pensacola, Florida, USA - AUG 18, 2014
Pours a clear deep golden color with a perpetual white cap. It has a perfumy, floral, yet clean nose. Apricot and citrus aromas. Full, soft mouthfeel. Citrus come through more in the flavor. Good malt backbone for structure and support. The sweetness balances the citrus and bitterness very well. Best of the Bristol regulars in my opinion.

3.6
stoutchap (423) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 12, 2014
A very drinkable IPA. Light nose, decent carbonation. Piney hops throughout but not overpowering.

3.4
Tide (4063) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUN 29, 2014
Bottle from Hazel’s beverage world. Amber color, white head. Bitter taste with grapefruit, hops, resin, pine and a bit of tropical fruits. Bitter finish with grapefruit, hops and pine. Good IPA, although a bit one-dimensional.
