A great citrus lead, dry-finishing IPA. Thanks to popery for getting to try it fresh. I would be very happy for this to be my local IPA.
Best IPA around. It is smooth, refreshing and clean. It's my go to beer, on tap is just as good.

On tap at the brewery; from 2011 notes.
A nice medium amber with a very durable off-white head.
There are plenty of hops in this one, that much is obvious from the nose. There’s a mix of hops, although I can’t tell which ones. The finish is markedly hoppy and long lasting, but without the strong bitterness i’ve come to expect in a beer this hoppy. Nice level of malts to balance the hops.
M- medium body and carbonation.
O - excellent, if otherwise not distinguished example of style. weihenweizen (4051) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - JUN 3, 2017

Slightly hazy amber with a decent lacy off white head. Aroma is pineapple orange citrus hop. Taste is sharp and tropical juicy - sweet orange into pink grapefruit with a mildly bitter hop finish. Bitter aftertaste. Well-balanced. This is a strong, drinkable IPA.

12 ounce bottle into tulip glass, bottled on 11/3/2016. Pours lightly hazy/cloudy golden/amber color with a 1-2 finger dense and rocky off white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Nice dense soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a light amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, peach, passion fruit, mango, melon, lemon zest, orange peel, pine, honey, bread, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of bright citrus/tropical/pine hops and moderate pale malt notes; with great strength. Taste of big grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, peach, passion fruit, mango, melon, lemon zest, orange peel, pine, honey, bread, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Moderate pine/grassy/citrus peel bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, peach, passion fruit, mango, melon, lemon/orange rind, pine, honey, bread, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a while. Incredible complexity, robustness, and balance of bright citrus/tropical/pine hops and moderate pale malt flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance, and zero lingering hop astringency after the finish. Light-moderate dryness from bitterness, increasing through the glass. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, moderately creamy/grainy/sticky, and lightly resinous balanced mouthfeel that is great. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 6.3%. Overall this is a fantastic IPA! All around outstanding complexity, robustness, and balance of bright citrus/tropical/pine hops and moderate pale malt flavors; very smooth and easy to drink with the balanced bitterness. Very bright and pretty juicy/dank on hop flavors. A highly enjoyable offering. bu11zeye (13139) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - OCT 5, 2016
(Draught) Pours a clear golden amber body with a medium off-white head. Aroma of caramel, citrus, florals, and pine. Flavor of pine, grass, grapefruit, orange, and apricot with a bitter finish. leaparsons (10710) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - SEP 17, 2016
Keg, Brewdog Leicester. Golden with a white head. Tropical pineapple with grapefruit bitterness. Floral, peppery pine with a very spritzy palate. Toasted malts with sticky peach. Very drinkable. ContemplateBeer (2089) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - SEP 4, 2016
12 oz. bottle at Robert H’s wedding; bottled on 8/24/16. Aroma: Prominent butterscotch with lighter, astringent citrus. Appearance: Coppered, somewhat hazy gold with soft carbonation holding up a tuft of foamy tan head that settles into a sticky skin. Flavor: Sweet butterscotch hard candy up front with dose of citrus hops that are much more bitter than juicy; the finish is bitter and semi-sweet. Palate: Medium body, sticky texture, soft carbonation, bitter finish. Overall: Old-school American IPA that’s a bit of an anachronism in the current market. ganache (6036) - New Jersey, USA - AUG 9, 2016
Bottled on 061616. Nose a little bland, hints of spice and earth, grapefruit paramount. Pour hazy orange with golden undertones and a very large and rocky, oily cream head. Taste very dry with medium resin, light spice, medium grapefruit but the citrus is a little muddled; overall flavor profile is also a bit muddled, some nice medium caramel with medium bitterness, flat and clean, not too earthy. There’s some fresh malt but not much of it, but the top notes of lemony citrus are bright and the overall effect is fresh and clean. Fullish body a bit flabby, but that doesn’t detract from the refreshing character or smooth go-down. Mixed bag, really, with some potential after tweaks. [2016.08.09: 3.1]
