jercraigs (10089) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 19, 2016
2016-05-15. Crisp golden amber body with modest creamy off-white head. 3++ Aroma is hoppy, fruity, light malt undertones. Flavour is pleasantly hoppy, moderate bitterness throughout, fruity hops, biscuity malt in the finish. Smooth average bodied palate, soft effervescent carbonation. 3+ Solid. Nice but the hop character is not quite has vibrant as I had hoped. 7/4/7/3/14-15 Bottle from Hamilton Beer and Wine, Hamilton, NZ.

polo_marco (328) - milton, Vermont, USA - JUN 10, 2016
Small of pineapple mango paypya and peach with sweet malts floral scent. A bit of lemongrass hey and a bit of spicy pepperiness. A crazy half Orange half yellow color with short white head that dies quick. Taste is crazy starting off with sweet malts with Orange juice and peel. A bit of peach coming through in the middle with a Juicey hop taste with sweet dry bitter finish that keeps your mouth watering for days. Medium to full sticky body with balanced carbonation coats tougue over and over again with each sip. The watering effect is awesome and the Juicey hop flavor never stops. Just wish the ABV was a bit higher for the price. Great IPA.

DeanF (2404) - Alberta, CANADA - MAR 25, 2016
Perfect foamy head on top of carbonated foggy gold.Aroma has a few layers, being hops and some detergent sourness, barn funk, not all sweetness which is unique, though the aroma remains rather subdued. I find the hops profile to be not as enticing as it could be, a little muddled, not sharp enough. Of course Ill still drink this bottle, its damned good, but still a few miles from Epic as they say down in the hood.

From a bottle. So silky smooth, no hint of the alcohol content, super dangerously drinkable. Love it.
