(En fût au Toronado SD): Oignons, agrumes et pêches enveloppés dans un voile minéral et gazonné. La texture est propice à l’engouffrabilité. Très juteux et sec, superbe. arminjewell (9728) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - FEB 21, 2015

Tap @ brewpub. Golden pour with a froth of white foam. Balanced pine and bitterness with some light citrus and moderate bready malt in the aroma. Taste is bready malt with pine and bitterness. Clean, slightly airy mouthfeel. Great balance of bitterness and malt. Excellent. User134089 (1644) - - JUL 13, 2013

Poured a honey amber clear color with 1-2 fingers of off-white head when I got it. That head wore off quickly. Pretty good lacing along the sides. Average retention on the way down.
Smelled tons of hops. Got lime, pine, citrus, caramel and floral, all in a clean, light whiff.
Initial taste reminded me of a Manzanita IPA. Caramel, lime, pine, floral hops and citrus hops.
Medium body. Creamy-to-oily texture. Average carbonation. Bitter finish.
This beer wasn’t as quite as good as I remember it from December, but I was sick then. But overall it is an OK IPA. thome50 (1295) - Morro Bay via Orange County, California, USA - JUN 5, 2013
Tap at the brewpub. Pours a clear golden. Aroma is belgian and banana with enough hops to know it is there. This really tastes more like a belgian IPA which isn’t my thing. Sweetness and banana again come into play. Very slight Belgian but almost hurts in a very bad way. anders37 (27621) - Malmö, SWEDEN - APR 6, 2013
