Finhead (1860) - OFallon, Illinois, USA - JUN 20, 2017
Slightly hazy, gold pour with a frothy, white head. The aroma has herbal and pine hop notes. It has a medium body with oily texture and average carbonation. The taste is bitter with a long, smooth finish. SanfordBrewer (1610) - Sanford, Florida, USA - JUN 3, 2017
Dark gold with persistent white head. Creamy full body with moderately high carbonation.
LinusStick (3537) - Moon Twp, suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 27, 2017
Soapy dank and citrus hops, crystal malt, lingering herbal bitterness, and faint hints of butyric acid.
Ugh I wish non-west coast Brewers would stop classifying their IPAs as "west coast style" when the beers are so malt forward. This wasn’t a bad beer. Very balanced between caramel malt and earthy hops. Aroma was decent. A little soapy with some pine and earthiness. Pour was a nice medium gold with a thin off white film for a head. Taste was good. Caramel malt in the front with a hot and bitter hoppy finish. A little thin and one dimensional but not any worse than any other run of the mill IPA. Decent carbonation. fusajohn (2) - - MAY 18, 2017 does not count
Great session (5.9) beer. Brief floral opening settles into a hoppiness that seems to represent more than 60 IBUs. Medium-high carbonation, medium bodied. Tasty.

Bottle. Golden color with a nice frothy white head and medium lacing. Aroma is floral with notes of resinous pine, grapefruit and some lemon zest. It is moderately bitter. Just a very nice IPA.

on tap at Applebee’s in Mooresville NC (north of Charlotte) - nice deep golden color. Hoppy and fruity aroma and flavor. superspak (6359) - Waterford, Michigan, USA - APR 20, 2017
12 ounce bottle into tulip glass, bottled on 3/6/2017. Pours crystal clear golden/amber color with a 2 finger dense and rocky off white head with awesome retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Dense soapy lacing clings around the glass. Fantastic appearance. Aromas of big tangerine, grapefruit, pineapple, peach, mango, papaya, lemon zest, orange peel, citrus rind, light pepper, pine, light honey, toasted biscuit, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of citrus/tropical/pine hops and moderate bready malt notes; with great strength. Taste of big tangerine, grapefruit, pineapple, peach, mango, papaya, lemon zest, orange peel, citrus rind, light pepper, pine, light honey, toasted biscuit, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Moderate pine/citrus rind/grassy/spicy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, pineapple, peach, mango, papaya, lemon/orange rind, pepper, pine, toasted biscuit, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a while. Very nice complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/tropical/pine hops and moderate bready malt flavors; with a nice malt bitterness balance; slight lingering hop astringency, but not overwhelming. Moderate dryness from lingering bitterness, increasing through the glass. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, moderately sticky/resinous/rindy, and fairly bready/grainy balanced mouthfeel that is nice. Zero warming alcohol for 6.2%. Overall this is a very nice IPA. All around nice complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/tropical/pine hops and moderate bready malt flavors; very smooth and easy to drink; despite the increasingly bitter/drying finish. Great vibrant hop flavors, with a solid malt backbone with minimal residual sweetness. Just a tad too aggressively bitter/drying, this was still really enjoyable.

Tasted from a 12oz. bottle. It poured a golden hue with a light beige head. Aroma of hops, pine, and a bit of grapefruit. Bitter hop taste with a bit of grapefruit. A rustic outdoor type of IPA. Not bad, but not outstanding. DialSquare (5198) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - APR 6, 2017
