Bottle from Total Wine, South Richmond. Pours clear golden with a small white head. Aroma is toasted malt, minor coffee, minor citrus. Flavor is bland malt, minor coffee, almost no citrusy hops. Very bland, boring, and more a pale ale than anything. Tmoney99 (14601) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 15, 2017

Pours with a one-finger bubbly white head that fades slowly a good lace. Crystal clear amber color. Medium bodied & medium carbonation. Light grapefruit hop nose. Flavor starts with sweet caramel malt and late grapefruit hops, slight bitter aftertaste. Gift 12oz bottle. Rex_Remes (226) - Bonyhad, HUNGARY - JAN 31, 2017
UPDATED: JUN 29, 2017 (12oz bottle) AROMA: hoppy, fruit ice cream, sweet malt/corn, hint of smokey. APPEARANCE: golden Amber, mostly clear, just a tad hazy, creamy pale white head, some lacing. TASTE: toasty malt, some coffee/toffee, dry citrus rind, creamy black cherry, light resin, soft hop finish. PALATE: medium body, fresh upfront, clean, not overly bitter or dry. OVERALL: this IPA leans a bit towards the malts, good ale look and feel, very drinkable. Definitely more English-style, as described. Not as big as many Amercan-style IPAs but still has decent body and complexity. so this is less of a sipping ale. Would make a good every day, hearty beer. ffaoe (802) - Moorestown, New Jersey, USA - DEC 13, 2016
light balanced malt/hop aroma. gold and clear in color with fast fading head. taste is hop forward but had malt background to balance flavors of resinous hops and caramel malts. teorn88 (7682) - Rimini, ITALY - OCT 13, 2016
Not sure why I never rated this. Had multiple bottles of this when studying at UPenn, 2009. One of my first American IPAs. It pours a clean rich golden color with a medium white head. Aroma is resinous and lightly malty with notes of pine cones caramel and resin. Taste is medium sweet with a nice malty backbone and a clean bitter resinous hop presence. It’s a classic West Coast style IPA with good malts and resinous hops. Would not love it today probably, but did enjoy it back then.
