mrjez (539) - Osaka, JAPAN - JUL 14, 2016
Bottle from World Beer Market, bottled in June? Pours a nice orange-gold, clear with tiny bubbles, low white head. Pine resin and candy-orange aroma, light honey and malt. Flavour is quite sweet, pine and floral hop notes sit back and let malt sweetness come through. Reasonably light body for an IPA, light chewy middle and a moderate bitterness with lingering pine and caramel. Good refreshing IPA, balanced in that east coast way. I could drink many in a session and not get bored in the slightest.

kapusil (1266) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JUL 10, 2016
0.355l bottle. Slightly hazy orange body, thick and lasting white head. Aroma of toast, caramel, pine, grapefruit, orange zest and some grapes. Taste of caramel, toast, grapefruit, pine, grass and lemon zest. The bitterness is not aggressive at all. Quite balanced brew. Very nice.

PanMarek (336) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 8, 2016
Pleasant hoppy nose, citrus-forward, especially orange with touches of pine at the end. Cloud golden pour with moderate foam. Medium body. Tasty combination of hop bitterness that favors the citrus but does not neglect the resiney notes. Definitely a go-to IPA.

355ml bottle. Clear golden with one finger white head. Aroma is intense pine, grapefruit, citrus, orange, floral notes and cookie malts. Taste is quite bitter with pine, orange, citrus, floral notes, light grapefruit and crisp bread and dry cracker malts. Light to medium mouthfeel, medium carbonation and lasting pine aftertaste.

jc1762 (1055) - Washington DC, USA - JUN 26, 2016
Bottle into a shaker showing well filtered, honey wooden hues and sparse white foam. The nose shows toasted and nutty notes with light hints of apple and honey. But the nose is completely dry. The palate is well carbonated and medium bodied. Flavors of dry caramel malts show through out the beer. Perfect maltiness if there ever was any. Light IPA bitterness on the finish. Great modern American IPA.

Smell: citrus, caramel, pineapple, bitter piney hops. Taste: bready malt, dank citrus, med carbonation. Finish: grapefruit, herbal notes, dry, resin bitterness. slightly metallic & dank notes suggest this may not be very fresh (bottled 01/19/16, tasted 04/04/16)

It's not a west coast IPA and that's a good thing. It's more balanced with citrus and bitter than most. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

teamsale (227) - Washington, USA - JUN 7, 2016
Bottle pours a clear gold with a two finger white head and nice lacing. Smells floral with some catpiss. Hits the mouth a little hard, slightly spicy, flavors abound. Tastes sweet but not in the malty way, this one is very well balanced. The bitterness is about ideal and the aftertaste is a nice lasting citrus.
