cakanator (452) - South Hadley, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 16, 2011
12oz bottle, decently fresh just 2 weeks out. Pours a great darker amber hue, great head and lacing. Aromas are vibrant with floral and bitter hops, citrus, but really right up front telling you its an IPA. Palate follows so nicely, the bittering hops rip the outside edge and leave a lingering bitter citrus finish. The abv suits this one well, its worth the higher pack price tag since you dont need to drink more than 2 in any given night.

Aubrey (3516) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - NOV 16, 2011
Tasty IPA. Great orange hue with a frothy, long-lasting collar. Snappy-crisp bite up front; smoother toward the finish. Zingy, biting hops with great aromas (pine, grapefruit and grass). Citrusy / rind-like bitterness. Caramel and cookie dough malts. Enjoyed this one.

12 oz bottle. Hazy yellow/orange with a small head. Aroma is lots of citrus, flowers, caramel and bubble gum. Flavor is firmly bitter with a medium caramel malt sweetness. Medium body with average carbonation and a clean, balanced finish. Very nice, drinkable IPA.

Copper color in the glass with an off-white head. Aroma of earthy, floral, and citrus hops. Nice malty backbone has some caramel sweetness to balance the hop bitterness. Good IPA all-around.

jonno (2682) - JAPAN - NOV 6, 2011
Big beefy IPA. Really full bodied - lots of caramel, bread and a bit of honey with a solid citrus based bitter finish. Very meaty and muscular. Well balanced between the bitter sweet. Thanks to Beerkat for this one!

BeerSkull (1374) - SWEDEN - NOV 4, 2011
UPDATED: AUG 30, 2014 (Can). Big fruity and floral hops scent. Mmmmm! Abundant hops flavor, very fruity and with nice citrus notes. Good bitterness in the aftertaste. Really good! Can be a bit "hard" to drink as it is, but works very well with food.

rubbishystuff (2485) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 4, 2011
UPDATED: FEB 16, 2015 Really this is quite nice. Fresh hop flavors balanced quite nicely with maltiness. The flavor of the hops presents while drinking but politely subsides after youre done and doesnt coat the palate with a hoppy residue. Malt is not too sweet but not to dry neither. Serving: Bottle
