Faint floral and bubble gum aroma, not detecting any citrus. Looks fine, head is tight before fading to a disc. Tastes a bit like an English bitter / Belgian pale ale hybrid, with a touch of spiciness on the finish. Feels a bit light in the mouth. Not sure if this bottle was too old to shine, or possibly infected. Best by 12/18/13 on the label, may have been some stank hops. Maybe next year. arminjewell (9721) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - NOV 8, 2013
Pour out of 22 oz bottle, hazy orange pour with thin but lacing white head, aroma brought soft biscuit, cracker, some orange peel, orange marmalade, hints of grapefruit and lemon peel as well, slight spice in there as well. Taste is a mix of sweet orange, grapefruit, some lemony notes into a hint of grass, more sweet cracker, slight biscuity notes, nice hints of spice, finishing slightly bitter, some more lemon. Tasty but very light, more like a slightly hopped pale ale. DrunkSanta410 (987) - Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA - NOV 8, 2013
22oz bottle to glass. Pours a slightly hazy golden color with average white head. Aroma of big citrusy hops. Taste is the same, with grapefruit notes and moderate bitterness. Very smooth. EdInSaltLake (748) - Salt Lake City, Utah, USA - NOV 8, 2013
Grapefruit-like hop aroma and flavor. Some peppery hop flavor. Light sweet, toasty malt. Strong but smooth bitter aftertaste. Reid (2672) - Salem, Oregon, USA - NOV 7, 2013
22oz bottle bought from Fred Meyer ,N.Salem store.
Pours a slightly hazy golden yellow colour with a large thick and frothy white head.
Nice fresh hop floral and citrus aromas..touch of bread from the malts. Good.
Taste is very "juicy" and floral ..quenching indeed..more pine notes right at the end..but this is a really fresh light IPA.( even with the alc %).
Great palate..really well made stuff.
Excellent fresh hop IPA..even in the first week of Nov..a vast improvement from last year.

Clear golden with a good pale head. Aroma is peach, pineapple, apricot, lychee, orange blossom. Creamy mouthfeel, sweet and fruity to start with a nice bitter citrus finish and lingering aftertaste. Taste is citrus pith, lychee, mango, touch of resin. HenryXXX (238) - British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 7, 2013
The nose is floral hops. The taste is quite bitter, followed by floral hops and a light sweetness. The finish is a little bitter, but no clawing.

Tap at Zios. Pours a fairly clear light golden color with a big foamy head response. Aroma is sharp hops, big and upfront. Grassy hops that are more earthy than citrus. Lemongrass type of smell. Mouthfeel is incredibly smooth. Light hops and a gentle bitterness on the finish. Interesting, not as hoppy as I was expecting.

Draft pour. Little aroma :( Clear light golden, decent white head with good lacing. Mild delicate taste, light hop flavor balanced nicely by mellow malts. Resembling lager- or pilsener-style (yeast?). Not an overwhelming fresh-hopped selection.

I love wet hop beers and this one came shining through. resiny, lemony, the Amarillo hops seem to deliver maybe a more delicate, or softer overall feel than for most other wet hopped beers I’ve had. or maybe it was just the fairly light malt profile, or both. Don’t know. Loved it.
