Bottled 03.01.17. A: Grapefruit, pineapple, and caramel. It sure smells like an old school IPA. A: See through dark amber body. T: Follows the nose with added pine. P: Nicely crisp and bubbly, with resin on the back end. O: Its a pretty solid, well balanced, old school IPA.

Cans left over from grandmas 90th birthday party- nice caramel color with good carbonation. Grassy and earthy notes; great nose. Hoppiness right away but mixed with slight sweetness. Then a flood of welcome bitterness.

Hopper8 (123) - Holland, Michigan, USA - APR 15, 2017
Its a pretty solid IPA. It pours a beautiful Amber color with a nice head. It has a pleasant hop aroma and it doesnt finish too bitterly. The Hops are flavorful without being too annoying. Its a little light, but it it good.

12floz bottle, BOD 12.30.2016, $1.50 as a single (Ive had prior), poured into a pint glass. Appears a good lookin medium-amber with a clingy head. Nose doesnt punch you in the face like many American IPAs, just a pleasant bouquet of orange, grapefruit, and pineapple. This beer is all about balance; bitter-sweet, medium-full body, and satisfying. Blood orange and slightly burnt biscuit flavors make this a versatile beer that defines the style.

Al club de tast de lOlut, comparaci de la frescor duna Ipa nova amb una antiga. El nostre paladar encara no est acostumat a la frescor i pensem en les IPA velles que no arriben en perfectes condicions de consum.

josanguapo (1500) - SPAIN - MAR 29, 2017
From Saveur-Biere. In Teku glass. Playing Darksiders 2. Very oily, with an amazing resinous taste, feeling and aroma that makes you want to enjoy it slowly, sip by sip. A shame when finishes.

12oz bottle poured at home. Beer was a gift - bottle dated 10/26/16. I would assume the aroma has faded with the age of the bottle - but still a very tasty easy drinking IPA

Somehow I failed to rate this although Ive been drinking it occasionally for years. Not my favorite because of the mildly bitter finish, but a good change from all the Lagunitas Sucks I customarily drink. Can into a Belgian ale glass, nice amber color with a lot of foam which recedes to a persistent thin white covering. Very attractive in the glass. Aroma is complex, malty, floral, citrus-y. The flavor is mild sweet malt, pine, some citrus and spice. It is complicated but very well balanced and enjoyable. Pretty classic left-coast style IPA.
