651 ml. bottle. 7.5% ABV per the label. Pours a medium thick, well retained, off white head, with extensive lacing, over a very slightly hazy dark gold (SRM 6) effervescent body.....nose is heavy pine, resin grapefruit citrus from the hops, mild toasted malts, balance to the hops.......taste is mildly floral sweet with light toasted malts, heavy pine, resin, moderate grass, allium, finishing with moderate hops bitterness, balance to the hops........mouth feel, medium body, mild alcohol, medium carbonation. This is a quite typical hop dominated in aroma, flavor and bitterness American style IPA. It is enjoyable, if one likes hops. The malt backbone is a bit light, and the allium is a bit strong.

Bottle thanks to my Father-in-Law Dan: Poured a clear golden with fluffy white. Aroma danky hops. Taste is super earthy with malts balance. Huhzubendah (3705) - Washington DC, USA - AUG 17, 2016
22 oz. bottle purchased at the brewery. This has been on my wants list for years.
Transparent orange body with a frothy white collar. Steady effervescence emanating from the bottom of the glass. Aromas of citric hops, followed by light malt, dank hop character. Hop forward for sure, but tempered by a sturdy malt bill. As far as "balanced" IPAs go, this is solid. Lingering tangy grapefruit juice / zest adds a piquant note in the finish. Tasty.

Gravity @ GBBF 2014. Brilliant gold pour with a small frothy white head. Nose is quite dank indeed. General green biomass. Some underarm. Sea grass. Lemon zest. Nice bright hop-forward flavor. Citrus and tropical fruits. Melon salad. Light cheesiness. Herbal bitterness. Soft biscuit body. Medium body, a bit sticky. Soft carb. Surprisingly lively given its long journey. Cool stuff.

Cask at GBBF 2016. Light amber shade. Small head. Sweetish malts with long bitter hop flavours. Lots of grassy and tropical fruit notes packed in. Glad to try it but I don’t think it shines on cask. Beerhunter111 (20487) - P´Castle, GERMANY - AUG 9, 2016

51 cask at GBBF 2016.. Golden amber.. Thin white lacing.. Soft zezty lemon nose.. Soft sweet oily lemon fruit onceblind (9700) - Denver, Colorado, USA - AUG 1, 2016
Hazy bright golden with a sticky white head. Huge leafy earthy resinous nose with a bit of grapefruit pith and pale malty backbone. Smooth and lingering flavor that’s full and a bit bready-yeasty with nice citrus tones throughout, pine resin, floral dankness, and a funky earthy hop finish that lingers and is formed by biscuity ple malty and a loaf of earthy resins.
