Excellent beer. Nice fresh hop flavors and juicy oily creamy body. Nice citrus and pine hops. Toffee taste and some mellow spice bite that is very nice. lithy (2996) - Capital of Appalachia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 7, 2009
Bottle thanks to nearbeer. Pale golden yellow with a puffy creamy rocky white head with sticky lacing. Big citrus grapefruit and pine hops aroma. Taste is big herbal fresh hops, pine, spruce, peppery, some hidden citrus over a light caramel body. 41cubs (250) - , New Jersey, USA - APR 5, 2009
You must let this beer warm up to really enjoy the delicate nature of it, if not, it comes across as a very simple, clumsy hop smack in the grill. Smell is of lemon pepper, sourdough, and bittering hops. Looks like a golden hazy pilsner. Flavor is more lemon bite with an earthier hop than in the aroma but still a tad bitter. Mouthfeel is quite rich but not at all sticky, very clean with subtle carbonation. This is like Ruinations little cousin without the sticky sweetness at the end. 2008 12oz. smetrick (21) - Conshohocken, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 3, 2009
12 oz bottle. Not sure I would call this an IPA- it is rather blond looking, and not quite as bitter as others claiming to be IPAs. I really love this brewer. Being a fan of hops, I loved the fresh, floral, citrus nose, and the luscious, persistent, sticky, sweet hops. It was absolutely delightful- a very fresh interpretation with lots of volatile flavors. I imagine you should drink this one young. Outstanding!!! sleepylopes (318) - New York, USA - MAR 30, 2009
airy wet head, like over steamed milk. apple juice color. clean grass pine and water nose: light sweet biscut and maple. smooth drinkable and ballance creamy hops. nice bitter finish an apa...no?

12 oz bottle courtesy of awiseman01. Pours a straw yellow with an orange tone. Loads of frothy off white head. Fresh hop to the nose with a grapefruit core. Flavors are light sweet pineapple and a soapy/earthy flavor. Mouth is crisp but a little sticky in the finish. Not a big fan of the one of the hops in there I’m not a big fan of. I have yet to identify which it is. Still a good IPA. blklab2007 (2120) - Connecticut, USA - MAR 25, 2009
bottle poured into a snifter has a yellow amber color and an off white head that retained well and dripped down the glass. aroma has clean citrus hops, peppery spice, pollen, and light sweetness. mouth feel is light and has high carbonation. flavor comes off with nice citrus hops, lemon, light bitterness, and a touch of malt. the sweetness is low and it finishes drying. really nice brew! askjaer (23) - Frederiksberg C, DENMARK - MAR 16, 2009
Pours a hazy light copper with a nice lasting dense head. The aroma is very hoppy mainly of citrus with some floral notes as well. It tastes fresh with hop oils and low sweetness. The finish is dry and bitter. The balance improves as the beer warms but the high bitterness is not quite matched by the lean body and low sweetness. However it is a very nice and refreshing beer - a great alternative to a pilsner on a warm day. mcbackus (758) - Merritt Island, Florida, USA - MAR 10, 2009
bottle: pours a clean spritzy yellow with a large white head. aroma is sweet and grainy with a touch of honey the hops are present and are earthy with some spiceness and pine. the flavour is a very pronounced hop that is piney and resiny it does have a sweetness in the background from the malt. finishes with more hop bitterness and very carbonated. aracauna (3631) - Georgia, USA - MAR 9, 2009
Pours a pale amber with a huge head. There’s a surprising level of carbonation in this beer. The aroma is nicely hoppy, a little peppery. The malt is sweeter than the dry hopped pale ale, but far from cloying. A definite candied fruit quality to the finish.
