Tap at Hamilton’s. Clear medium amber with a small off-white head, fair retention. Aroma of orangey lightly dank hops, tinge of pine, and light dry biscuit malt. Flavor follows suit, pretty much zero sweetness, more orange with light backing pine. Bitterness peaked at a 7, dry. Light prickly carbonation with a light body. Very tasty. I think I had the first batch that Guy brought to joet’s tasting after CBC in SF. 8.5 aroma and flavor.

Pretty nice IPA. Aroma stands out, pours a nice amber color, head and carbonation are acceptable. Very enjoyable IPA on a sunny SoCal evening. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

blankboy (7662) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 1, 2015
[Bottle (660ml)] Pours a clear deep golden-orange with a large lasting frothy off-white head. Odd IPA aroma, it’s fruity and vegetal along with hops, pepper and caramel malt.. Flavour of caramel malt, resiny piney hops, fruit, alcohol and a long moderate to big bitter finish, Medium bodied. A bit of a miss to me, just good.

hivemind (914) - New York, New York, USA - MAY 16, 2015
Bottle from Pioneer @ James’s. Pale yellow, white head. Mellow hop profile but still fresh on nose and palate. Not a hop-monster, but good/well-rounded. Bready aftertaste.

jredmond (8204) - New York, New York, USA - MAY 16, 2015
Bottle at the half marathon tasting. Pours a clear golden body with white lacing. Mouthfeel is super spicy and grainy. The aroma is not bad - but okay.

Another tasty hop blowout from GF in the HO series. Beautiful tropical bitterness throughout. Damn good.
