UPDATED: JUL 8, 2016 Clear gold, spritzy white head, yields to wispy. Aroma of hops, berries, orange and some soapiness. Taste comes around, decently balanced, some sweet breadiness in the finish. Saved itself after the soapy aroma thing

Zymurgeist2 (2003) - Redwood City, California, USA - JUN 23, 2016
Tap at New York Sports Bar in JFK. Clear light copper-gold with full white head that is chunky. Beyond that, my west coast bias doesnt allow me to to get the plot - ever - on these malty IPAs. Boring and one dimensional.

commonmac (1111) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAY 20, 2016
Tap at Union Bar in Boston with commonshawn and samadouche. Pint glass. Clear golden with a hint of orange. Lacing is strong but minimal head. This bartender is quintessential Boston. Aroma is mild but hops at the forefront. Malty aspects come through more than expected. Light in body and pretty easy to drink. Feels like a standard IPA that is definitely approachable to the masses. Some citrus present. This isnt going to blow you away with originality but you wont be unhappy either.

Nice hop bitterness, fairly orangey with some pine, resin and malt to balance. Nice IPA, thought there may be more love for it on here to be honest.
