This beer blew me away, it was from a somewhat unknown brewery to me but the flavor of this IPA was outrageous. Get it if you can ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Can to pint - pours a nice gold, resilient ivory colored head. Tons of resin and rich florals on the nose, notes of caramel. A hair slick on the tongue, I wanted it to be meatier, pretty good taste though, the malts shine and a pine, bitter hop finish lingers pleasantly with a flash of funk. It’s pretty good.

Pretty good beer, you can smell the malts right off. Mine was from a can which seemed to have strong pine/spruce flavor but still great.

Poured from a 12 oz can with a March 01, 2017 date. Aroma is fairly malt forward with lots of light caramel, biscuit and cracker malt notes. Moderate grapefruit and pine notes from hops with a hint of alcohol. Pours a somewhat hazy, copper orange with a medium large, thick, white head that exhibits good retention as it slowly recedes. Moderate lacing and small legs. Flavor is fairly sweet upfront with some caramel and biscuit malt notes. Moderately strong bitterness with a bit of a bite to it. Some grapefruit and pine resin hop notes. Lingering bitterness, caramel and pine resin. Mouthfeel is medium to medium full bodied with moderate carbonation. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth. Overall, not a very good IPA. The malt profile is way too prevalent with too much caramel malt. The hop profile is fairly one dimensional and old fashioned as well. I’m glad IPAs have moved away form this hop profile.

BrownALEx (459) - Portland, Michigan, USA - DEC 22, 2016
Great aroma, citrus hops. Columbus hops steal the show here. Nice pine and citrus taste in this one. Pretty good west coast style ipa. Drinkable. Would get again.
