Hazy gold beer, tidy pale cream colour head. Palate is smooth and airy, fine carbonation. The malt is clean, as promised on the label, and is slightly sweet with a touch of cream. Hops are spicy pine. Some drying alcohol aniseed, but no real heat. Touch of citrus before a semi dry finish. Decent and drinkable.

fiulijn (19824) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 22, 2014
Bottle from The Beer Junction, Seattle
Beautiful color, bright light amber, hazy, with medium sized compact head. The aroma is not expressive, it has some malt and hops but its a bit stale. Good body strength, smooth mouthfeel; lean pale malts flavor, again not expressive, with very strong bitterness, woody bitterness too, some resins and not much fruity character.
Disappointing.

A: The beer pours a hazy golden orange color with a finger of white head. S: Grassy hops with a bit of pine and citrus peel. Lightly floral with just tons of bready malt and sweet toffee and caramel. Maybe a touch of sweet peaches. T: Caramel and toffee flavors with a light floral and piney hop flavor. Moderate bitterness with a hint of alcohol and citrus peels. More sweetness than anything else. M: Medium bodied with a medium carbonation. O: Another failed, sweet, malty IPA.
