UPDATED: APR 22, 2015 Can. Hazy golden. Orange pine aroma. Pleasant malty start, caramel and honey. Nice bitter middle and finish: pine citrus grapefruit pineapple. Lingering pine finish. Wet and delicious: thank goodness for FDR and the 21st Amendment. mile (3947) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 18, 2015
Can. Light amber, hazy, average and mostly diminishing head. Moderate to full, malty and lightly sweetish aroma, some caramel and light bread with light tropical fruitiness, piney - some grapefruit hoppyness. Body is medium to full, malty and lightly sweetish flavor, light caramel and light tropical fruitiness, piney - light grapefruit hoppyness. Finish is average, malty and dryish lightly, light caramel and bread, faint fruitiness, lots of piney - some herbal hoppyness. Bready IPA. Well hopped but in he finish bitterness gets bit sharp and soapy. mkgrenwel (619) - North Shore, Massachusetts, USA - APR 18, 2015
Hazy light Amber with golden highlights and an ample off white rocky head. Generic, faint IPA aroma. Crystal malt and muddled American hops. Flavor is sweet chewy crystal malt up front. Piney, sticky hops and a somewhat abrasive bitterness follow. I don't mind bitterness, but this seems to be all sweetness and bitterness without a ton of hop character to make it all worthwhile. On paper it sounds like I should like it. Balance is there, it's not quite boring, and there's nothing unappealing. It just never comes together into something better than average.

Pours a slightly brownish copper with an off-white head. Aromas are citrus, pine, and some herb. Little bits of alcohol. The flavor is marred with some pretty strong catty/ashy notes. Otherwise mainly pine, but there is some citrus trying to break through as well. Medium and slightly sticky body with lingering grassy flavors. kerenmk (4753) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - APR 14, 2015
Can sample at a tasting at Troubles’ place. Thanks Ariel. Clear amber. Hoppy, lemongrass, onion peel and dill aroma, dry, bitter, hoppy and a little sweet taste. Light body, carbonated, fruity finish.

Can sample at a tasting at Dror’s place. Thanks Ariel. Hazy golden. Aroma of "green" hops, a bit oniony. Flavor has some sweetish malt, "green" hops, and a bitter finish. Medium-bodied. eggraid101 (79) - Virginia, USA - APR 1, 2015
For an ipa this beer was uninspiring. Drank it out of a 12 oz can. A little light on the hops for an ipa. A little light on the body too. Not a bad beer but not my favorite ipa

Pours a deep gold / light copper color with minimal head. A decent but not huge resinous aroma. Taste is initially sweet with a strong malt backbone and flavors of caramel, brown sugar, and softer tropical fruits lead before a nice bitter finish comes in. It’s a rich beer, not unlike Dale’s Pale Ale. Quite tasty. musinj6 (506) - Dedham, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 30, 2015
Pours a dark golden to light amber clear from a can with a one finger head that leaves moderate lacing. Herbal hop and pine aroma. Heavily bitter. No sweetness. Medium bodied. Moderate carbonation. Long bitter finish. falco242 (398) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAR 23, 2015
Nice aroma, lots of hops and some citrus but ends with a lot of resin and bitterness. Solid overall but I prefer a more citrus - forward type.
