Draft. Pours a light amber with a white head. Slight piny nose. Taste is fruity, citrus, and light. Not overly sticky pine. Finishes definitively crisp.

Great nose of citrusy, piney hops. Tastes of peach, orange, pine & grass. More bitter than sweet, which is what I like. A great beer!

gripweed57 (1850) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - JUL 3, 2012
12 ounce bottle. Brilliant honey gold color topped by a big bubbly whie head. Piney citrus hop aroma. Sweetish toasted malt flavor upfront balanced by light peppery citrus hop in midtaste and finish. Very tasty indeed. Complex malt and hop flavors like vanilla bean, cardamom and mace. Great balance.

clear golden orange with one finger of foam white head. Fruity citrus on the nose. Medium body. Very refreshing. Hops present up front and they sort of fade. Very good everyday IPA

Pours a light golden orange with a slight haze to it. The head is large, fluffy and almost white leaving a little lacing and a small ring on the way down. The aroma is dominated by light citrus hops, especially lemons and oranges with a bit of bready malts mixed in. There is definitely a tropical fruit in the taste as well, when it warms, with lots of the same oranges and lemons from the nose. There is a malt body but the hops come back and leave a strong bitterness in the finish. The mouthfeel is smooth with soft carbonation and medium bodied. This is a very good IPA, very drinkable and dominated by citrus. A nice West Coast IPA.

Ober (2812) - Bommelerwaard, NETHERLANDS - JUN 30, 2012
A clear golden/yellow colored beer, with a thick foamy white head. The aroma of sweet fruits, like citrus and orange. And hops. The taste is some sweet, with some bitter, moving to stronger bitter, with notes of spices. The aftertaste is a little sweet with nice bitter.

Bif (2187) - St. Charles, Missouri, USA - JUN 30, 2012
Bottle- Pours a bright amber color with a good head that fades to ample lacing. Aroma of grapefruit, with some fruit sweetness and malt in the background with a hint of herbs. Nice bitterness up front with some fruit and bit of malt sweetness mixed in. A good bitterness continues with a finish that is quite clean with a bit of lingering bitterness. Medium body, crisp and very well balanced. The 7.5% ABV is very well hidden. Great IPA. Everything for a great beer is here with out being in your face or overpowering.

nielsedd (79) - Wisconsin, USA - JUN 29, 2012
Bomber from Lone Hill Liquor in CA that made the trip back with me to WI. Pours a clear dark gold with a thin layer of white head and good lacing. Smells like citrus and caramel with floral notes. Tastes of grapefruit, resin, and a nice caramel malt balance with that nice bitter resiny hop hanging in the back of your throat. Excellent IPA.

Bottle poured into a tulip glass. Clear golden color with thin white head. Great aroma of citrus hops. Tastes like it smells. Very refreshing, perfectly balanced IPA. This is a dangerously easy beer to drink. My favorite IPA. Another classic from the west coast.
