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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

superspak (5403) - 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.

ChiGuy68 (592) - Illinois, USA - APR 18, 2017
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.

rollinsr (688) - Atlanta, GEORGIA - APR 2, 2017
Pours clear and gold with a finger and a half of off-white head. Aroma is estery spruce sap and dank citrus hops. Flavor is floral and hoppy with enough malt backbone to carry a sweetness on the back end of the palate. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

BOD 11/14/16. Slightly hazy light amber pour - similar to a fairly new copper penny. World class head volume, lacing and retention. Outstanding nose of mixed hops covering nearly the whole range. Intensity is moderate but complexity and balance are superb. Light citrus (orange, a touch of zest, subdued grapefruit), tropical (light mango and even lighter pineapple), soft pine and a touch of both grass and herbs. Dank is the only main missing trait. Medium bodied with a smooth texture with a touch of slick oiliness. World class carbonation / body balance. The middle a rousing perky effervescence that roils through to the finely bubbled prickly finish. The flavor profile is good but does not live up to the potential of the nose. Flavor separation is muted with soft flavors arriving first (citrus, tropical) and the middle being grassy and herbal. Bitterness is light for the style and is well balanced with a light bready sweetness in the middle. The heavier flavors (zest, pine) arrive as the sweetness fades towards the finish. The finish is a slow fade of zest and pine. A residual bitterness remains that is mostly zest. The lingering finish provides the highest level of bitterness, which is moderate.
