12oz can. Looks golden/amber with a lacy, off-white head. Aroma of floral and citrusy/piney hops, some pale and caramel malts, and a little dough. Flavor the same with a nice hoppiness. Average texture. A pretty good IPA.

3.5
Handypaul (581) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - DEC 24, 2013
Can. Pours clear amber with a small white head that leaves no lacing. Aroma is heavy sweet floral, grass and citrus. Taste is light sweet and medium bitter. Light body, thin texture, average carbonation, and a brief dry, hoppy, bitter finish. Great nose but kinda thin.

Perfume-like in aroma, pours a hazy light amber with a thick cap of off-white foam. Aromas of Valencia orange, light pine, citrus floral, lychee, juicy-fruit gum, grenadine-like, and a candy-like sweetness, with a slight toasty aspect. Taste upfront is moderately sweet, a medium caramel sweetness, a slight malty richness which is then followed with a smooth bittering. Finishes dry, lingers bitter. Very very good.

Cloudy orange color. Medium body with flat low carbonation. High bitter hop presence. Finish is more carbonated than initial sip. Slight grapefruit and citrusy hops. way too flat if this is how it always is.

bmerz (741) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - DEC 1, 2013
Can, fairly fresh. Very standard looking IPA with a little lace and head. Aroma is very floral with a mild sweetness, dry grain, and cedar. Taste is similar to this with subdued clean bitterness and a cedar end. Feel is soft and medium bodied. A very easy and well executed IPA with just enough character.

UPDATED: APR 20, 2014 22 Oz Bomber. The beer pours to a hazy orange/ amber color with a medium head. The aroma has a piney, slight caramel, biscuits & some mild citrus. The taste has a slightly sweet start followed by a nice medium bitter finish. Overall I think this is a good IPA

Pine, citrus, fruit and resin. Pours a cloudy yellow/orange with n off white head and good lacing. Nice bitterness and malt profile with a lot of citrus and bitterfruit.

3.9
harrymel (1551) - Spokane, Washington, USA - NOV 1, 2013
Bottled 12JUN13 Turbid amber ale with a soapy yellowed eggshell sheet. Smells of pine, resin, some mint, some other herbs. Flavor is nice and grapefruity, with sweetened lemon zest, some resin, some Vitamin C character and a slightly sweet malt backbone. Medium bodied with zippy, but lower carb and a watery finish. I like this beer. It’s like a smaller version of Ruination - which is probably my go to IPA honestly.
