Draft. Poured clear copper color with an average frothy off-white head that lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy simcoe hop and small malt aroma. Medium to abundant body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Moderate to heavy earthy bittersweet flavor with a moderate to heavy bittersweet finish of medium to long duration. This is a good beer. pilgrimoutlaw (888) - Wayne, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 17, 2013
Can pours gold with white head. Nice lacing. Citrus, pine, melon, coconut,. Moderately bitter, light sweetness. Medium, creamy body. Came out the favorite in last night’s beer tasting. NikkTwist (3344) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 14, 2013
Draft at Khyber Pass. Poured a slightly hazy deep orange amber with a off-white foam which formed a lasting thick ring. Simcoe. Simcoe. Simcoe. Presented strongly but not harshly. Ends are smoother and better rounded than other Simcoe centric beers I have had (i.e. read Spice of Life). Easy drinking without being soft. Great woody, dark resin notes with some dark amber fruit. An oak tree in a glass. It takes work to make such a dry hopped brew feel so effortless and I appreciate it. Great stuff! PriorL (3068) - Gent, BELGIUM - NOV 13, 2013

Gimmick beer that didn’t quite deliver all the way. Needs more contribution on the hops.

Growler poured a light amber color with a one finger white head that retained a thin coating. Aroma has light tropics, citrus, grass, and some light onion.

A golden ale with a thin white head. In aroma, nice biscuit malt with fruity esters, kiwi and mango, and citrusy floral hops, catty notes, very nice. In mouth, a smooth biscuit malt with smooth floral hops, light butterscotch, very nice. Sampled at Tørst from my neighbor. mansquito (6904) - Nueva York, New York, USA - NOV 8, 2013
New Beer Distributors, NYC 12oz can ($2.75): Pours orange with a white head. Aroma is a whole lot of tropical fruit, bunch of citrus, with substantial malt backbone. Taste is bitter dry-hopped. Hefty malt backbone as well. Well-balanced. Quite dry. Good IPA, but I’ve had better.
