A nice change of pace for an American IPA. Aroma is subtle and shows some caramel malt, bit of orange, some nice earth and spice. Overall a subtle yet highly drinkable IPA. UncleKorm (1321) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - AUG 21, 2015
Bottle poured a clear golden hue w/ a thick creamy long lasting white head. Moderate sweet melon aromas. Initial flavor is light sweet w/ a moderate bitter finish of long duration. Tastes are white grapefruit, pine, watermelon, straw, and light toast. Medium bodied and lively carbonation.

6/27/2015: Grabbed a bottle of this to enjoy at the park while watching the rafters before heading over to the airport... To be honest, this bottle wasn’t particularly fresh given that the label had a date stamp of Oct 2014, but so be it.. Drank it from an insulated stainless steel bottle, but the beer looked to be a nice golden color when I was pouring it in at the car. This drank more like an English style IPA, but had a lot more bite. I probably say that since the hops were degraded and more of the bready and biscuit maltiness was coming through. The hop flavors were herbal and spicy with some grass and pine. The bitterness level was okay, but it seemed a bit raw and therefore it didn’t have a very good aftertaste of overly pleasing lingering bitterness. Medium body, well-carbonated. Decent enough, but definitely far from prime or the best beer that we had on the trip. Good bye CO, we’ll miss you! :( fiveacestx (970) - Texas, USA - JUL 24, 2015
Bottle - average gold with a large bubbly head and lacing. Earthy hops but the malts stand out in this one. Lots of bread and biscuit notes. Pine, grass, etc. Medium body. Low bitterness. egajdzis (6620) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 21, 2015

Bottle. Head is initially small, frothy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is dark yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (caramel), moderately hoppy (grapefruit, apricot), with light notes of diacetyl, cooked fruit, plastic. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, moderately bitter, slightly unclean. Medium body, syrupy/watery texture, lively carbonation, lightly astringent, lightly alcoholic.
A little bit below average...syrupy sweet with an unwanted sourness, and the aroma has some problems of its own. Not enjoyable, but just barely drinkable. beerguy101 (5360) - Newark, California, USA - JUN 22, 2015
Sampled on 6/22/15. This IPA pours a slightly cloudy amber gold color from a 12oz bottle. Small to medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is fruity and sweet, a touch bready. A medium bodied IPA. The malts are fruity and sweet with some bread. The hops are citrusy and pine. Decent carbonation. It does seem a little sweet and the hops are somewhat subdued for an American IPA, but still very drinkable. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and crisp. Aftertaste is slightly bitter. nimbleprop (8474) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - JUN 11, 2015

Bottle. Caramel malt aroma with notes of pine and citrus hops. Pours golden colored with a moderate white head with good retention and some lacing. Starts with good caramel sweetness as well as some grapefruity citrus. Finishes very smooth for an IPA with only a hint of dryness and mild pine and citrus hops. Smooth, refreshing IPA.
