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 (3753) - 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. jackl (8423) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - AUG 17, 2016
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 (22508) - P´Castle, GERMANY - AUG 9, 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.

Bottle. Clear gold with a foamy, ivory head that lasts and laces. Aromas of grapefruit, biscuit, pine, light herbal notes and spice. Flavor is the same. Mediumd bodied, smooth with a dry, bitter finish. Ernest (7817) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 20, 2016
Bottle (presumed bottling date based on cap sticker is 04/27/16, label says 7.5% ABV).
Head is initially small, frothy, white, mostly diminishing.
Body is medium yellow.
Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), lightly hoppy (flowers, grapefruit), moderately yeasty (dough), with light notes of onions and taffy.
Flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter.
Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter.
Medium body, watery/oily texture, lively carbonation, moderately alcoholic.
What an odd beer, or perhaps just a bad batch...seemingly fresh based on the cap sticker, but there’s almost no aroma other than raw doughy yeast (and unfortunately the onion-and-taffy stink that some newer hop varieties seem to suffer from). The hops are shockingly shy for the style, this honestly smells like a year-old IPA. It’s almost as disappointing in the mouth, where it’s overly sweet, rather thin for its size/style, and slick/oily in texture. An objectively poor beer any way you cut it, unfortunately...drain pour level. trapped (3599) - New York, TURKEY - MAY 13, 2016
Bottle, thanks to Misterburd! Hazy dark orange with decent sized foamy off-white head, delicious floral hops aroma, medium carbonation, strong floral hoppy taste followed with orange peel flavor, somewhat tick body, long orange peel finish. Great dank IPA< very flavorful.
