nsquishee (641) - Richfield, Minnesota, USA - MAY 22, 2012
Well hopped IPA with a dry-hoppy finish. Lightly malted with flavors of grass, lime, orange peel, and honey. The dry hopping definitely adds a noticeable hoppiness and a dry, crisp finish. Not for the weak hearted, but it will satisfy the hopheads (like me). argo0 (14127) - Washington DC, USA - MAY 22, 2012

Gold/ornage pour, a finger of white ead. Aroma is mostly bitter grapefruit. Grapefruit and pine up front, nice caramel malt follows up. West coast-style hop profile. floral. Carbonation is right on. Maybe the most under-rated brewer north of the Mason Dixon. bytemesis (9515) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - MAY 22, 2012

(Draught at Oliver Twist, Stockholm, 26 April 2012) Amber colour with brief, beige head. Fruity, malty nose with notes of cereal, orange, marmalade, resin and apricots. Malty, fruity taste with grainy malt, apricots, orange and generous amounts of resinous hops in a fairly bitter finish. Medium body, with balanced sweetness. Well balanced, quite hoppy and very nice. CaptainCougar (7634) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - MAY 19, 2012
Pours a clear bright golden with a clingy-lacing froth of white head. Has a clean fresh floral hoppy nose with some light malty sweetness. Starts with pretty good fullness and lightly toasted malts with a good balance of citrusy hops before a drier bittersweet finish. Not all that assertive, but very drinkable. portableparty (2398) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - MAY 18, 2012
Bottle from watson1977. Pours clear amber with a large soapy sudsy off white head that fades to a soapy film. Aroma shows earthy hops that come off with some dry hops and malt. Taste is earthy toned down spruce like dry hops which is bitter and then the malt shows through and takes over. Palate is slick and smooth with a dry finish. Easy drinking IPA! obguthr (6832) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - MAY 17, 2012
Wood and caramel dominated aroma with piney accents. Clear copper, medium head. Fresh split oak flavor, caramel notes are understated. More citrusy orange peel in the finish. A malty IPA, just what I expected from Shmaltz.
