Aubrey (3516) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - JUL 30, 2012
Enjoyed this IPA. It’s bold and bitter, yet it’s got some nice nips of caramel sweetness and toasty bread crust to complement. Hop notes are loaded with dank pine and grapefruit rind. Tangerine burps added a nice touch.

Can thanks to my summer secret santa. Pours a mostly clear, golden orange color with a small foamy head that lingers nicely. Interesting aroma. Overripe oranges, pine, tropical fruit, and biscuits. Tastes more sweet than bitter. Fairly juicy. Orange juice and pineapple. Some pine in the finish. Pretty nice IPA but I can’t help but think there’s too much residual sugar here. I feel like this is close to being awesome.

AWISLguy (3375) - Wisconsin, USA - NOV 17, 2012
On tap at Brouwer’s Cafe. Pours orangey amber with a white head - terrific spoty lacing. Aroma has sweet toffee, pine, resin. Taste is sweet caramel, resin and citrus. Some pine. A bit rough. Becomes more and more bitter throughout the glass. Finishes bitter with hints of sweet. Better than non hoppy brews, but rough.

On tap at Clocktower. Hazy dark amber with a white head. Scent is citrus and floral. Taste follows with bread and pine notes.

Beese (3266) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 30, 2013
Draft at Standard in Portland, OR on 1 June 2013.
Poured a slightly hazy amber with a thin, but dense white head. Aroma of floral hops, pine and tropical fruit. Grapefruit hop flavours with bready notes and some caramel sweetness. Nicely balanced bitter finish of hop resin and grains.

3.3
mjg74 (3191) - La Mesa, California, USA - JAN 13, 2015
Canned. Pours a hazy golden/orange color. Huge head. A bit too much carbonation. Some sediment floating about. Sugary sweetness with a strong hoppy aroma. Well hopped. Spiced hoppiness up front. Some maltiness with a hint of sweetness. The excessive carbonation hurts.
