Shared with Strykzone via Facebook Chat. Poured a pure gold color with a nice beige head. Light lacing. The nose is very fresh floral and fruit, with some nice caramel malts as a backbone. Medium body with smooth mouthfeel. The flavor is s very floral with some citrus and tropical fruit, and it really has a nice bitterness. The finish is long and dry and the hop bitterness lingers. A lot to like here. dimenhetfield (2554) - , Florida, USA - MAR 22, 2013
12oz bottle poured into glass. Dark amber color with a thin fluffy head. Nice aroma of grapefruit and earthy hops. Nothing out of this world but it’s a solid IPA and that’s good enough for me. adeishaqra (45) - - MAR 21, 2013
UPDATED: MAR 28, 2013 A very hoppy IPA, well balanced in the palate, and the lingering fruit taste is refreshing. Pours golden amber and the nose is fantastic. Tastes like it smells! douglas88 (9797) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 18, 2013
650 ml bottle from Holiday Wine Cellar. Pours a clear copper color with a large white head. A big fruity nose with some biscuit. The flavor is moderate bitterness, lots of resin (nice!), light tangerine, orange peel, some caramel and biscuit malts. Very good, superbly drinkable. madvike (3306) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 18, 2013
Bottle - Pours lightly hazy amber with a big foamy off-white head. Nose is pine resin, herbal hops, lightly spicy with a sweet malty backbone. Taste is real dry and astringent, with herbal/spicy hopping and some butterscotch. Smooth in the mouth, but the carbonation bites a bit.

Pours golden yellow with a short lived white head if super fine bubbles. Aroma of juniper and hops. Nice hoppy flavor with notes if grapefruit. Nice bitter IPA with a long lasting residual taste to remind you what it taste like for at least 5 minutes. Think ill have a few more to be sure.

Dark gold very light head that dissipated quickly. Very aromatic. Aroma of evergreen, but not spruce; more like redwood. Very different from other IPAs. Good fizz, but light body. Hoppy, taste is more like a standard IPA than the aroma is. Nice beer. dfearnley (2405) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 4, 2013
Bottle to flute
Grapefruit, pine, tropical fruit, raisin. Clear reddish amber with a large white head that settles quickly to a thin creamy head and lots if lacing. The taste is piney and fruity with a nice hoppy kick. jcr (2785) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - MAR 3, 2013
Draft. Cloudy golden body with a frothy, white head, slowly diminishing. Aroma of citrus hops, orange, grapefruit, toasted grain with a hint of finger nail polish. The flavor is lightly to moderately sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. It finishes lightly sweet and moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Aroma is a lot more complex than the flavor whose grapefruit bitterness overshadows other tastes. But at least it’s not a resin bomb.
