Bottle from sampler. Minimal hop smell and thin for an ipa mouthfeel. Bold upfront but hops are quite muted. Minimal spice taste and bitterness is balanced but not great. This is a slightly below average ipa. Can bring it home but might need a bag over her head.

Bottle, from US. Backlog entry. Entering my historic scores for US beers whilst visiting New York. No tasting notes kept, just rating. rcceattle (1) - SEATTLE, Washington, USA - AUG 17, 2017 does not count
For an IPA it has a bit much carmel coming across ...but overall a reasonably good tasting beer. Nothing to run down to the pub for... IslandHaole (1299) - Misawa, JAPAN - FEB 25, 2017
A clear copper colored beer with light pine hops. Creamy, mild bitterness, More an English style IPA than the much better (IMO) Left Coast Uber hopped IPA style. danjs5 (296) - AUSTRALIA - NOV 6, 2016
Toffee yeasty malt aroma with similar taste and smooth slight bitter finish. Deep amber colour. 6.3%ABV. Nice. rdixon77 (3035) - Georgia, USA - OCT 8, 2016
Not very good IPA. Mix pack fodder. Caramel bomb. Not much hop flavors going on. Truly generic tasting.

Fairly nice IPA with some body. Very grassy, not altogether pleasant aroma. I do enjoy the strong and complex hops though. bitterlady (74) - - MAY 20, 2016
A brew to liven up your nostrils, sweet and flowery that turns to a rust and honey. Not as bitter as I expected, the bitterness lingers late and tingles. So much flavour. Beautifully well rounded, an umami of hops, malt, pepper, berries. This is a great beer. oldrtybastrd (5228) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 13, 2016
Pours a nice clear amber. Aromas of citrus and hops. Flavors of grapefruit and orange. Nice hop flavor with a spicy edge. Borup (15373) - Albertslund, DENMARK - APR 14, 2016
33 cl. bottle. Hazy orange colour with a white head. Aroma and flavor of malt, hops, grass, fruit, crispy, lemon, caramel, peach and a bitter finish. mrjez (675) - Osaka, JAPAN - MAR 24, 2016
Bottle in Melbourne. A darkish clear gold with a half finger of head. A light tropical fruit nose, grainy, the taste is similar with more of a malt than hop presence. Has a minerality in it, it’s clean at the end, but a tad light for an IPA. Not bad but nothing memorable.
