3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
2014/01/25 - Pours a clear orange-amber colour with a two finger, frothy, off white head that lingers and leaves ample lacing. Aroma is citrus, grapefruit, pine hops and caramel malts. Taste is similar to nose with an emphasis on the citrus and caramel notes. Mouthfeel is medium with sharp carbonation and a crisp, drying finish. Well balanced hop/malt profiles, but is a little too citrus focused for me.

12-ounce bottle pours clear gold with a creamy off-white head; lots of lacing. Aroma: citrus and tropical fruits, honey, pine. Flavor: grapefruit, orange, pineapple, mango, pine. Mouthfeel: medium-bodied, dry and crisp. Bill Becker (2012) - Casper, Wyoming, USA - JAN 16, 2018
From January 2011.
I bought a six pack and brought it home before I looked at the bottles...loaded with floaties. Checking on the Julian date, I see it was bottled June 10. Oh well.
It has a nice honey gold colour with a minimal head of foam and very little lacing. I'm keeping the floaties in the bottle...
Big lemon citrus notes with some biscuit notes in the smell.
Ditto for the taste only here it doesn't show much balance and the hop flavour seems harsh to me. It's rather thin bodied, lowish with the carbonation, and isn't all that drinkable.
As is, it doesn't impress me but if I come across fresher samples, I'll give it another go and see if a change in my review is needed. Blastomorpha (154) - - JAN 14, 2018

Simple and effective IPA. piwnysnoob (19) - Torun, POLAND - JAN 11, 2018
Bottle 355ml. Nice light amber colour. Candy smell with some herbal aroma as well and malts. Sweet taste, bitternes almost zero, medium body. Hoops, herbs, still a bit of candy taste. Overal, interesting beer. LakatosKE (656) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - JAN 10, 2018

Nice pale looking IPA. Flowery and hoppy, clean pint of beer and slips down nicely :) beersandbass (34) - Saint-Amand-Montrond, FRANCE - JAN 3, 2018
UPDATED: JAN 3, 2018 Une bière sèche, amère avec des saveurs d'agrumes, de pamplemousse et légèrement maltée. Une bonne IPA. Tometclo (349) - Paris, FRANCE - JAN 3, 2018
Léger col de mousse blanche, bière de couleur cuivre, bulles fines. Bel arôme de fruits exotiques. Le fruité est moins expressif en bouche, mais nous retrouvons ces fruits exotiques, peut être des litchis, sur une belle amertume. Une IPA US industrielle mais de belle facture pour nous européen. Je la recommande pour habituer son palais aux saveurs houblonnées sans amertume gigantesque. 355 ml chez Monoprix ffaoe (1021) - Moorestown, New Jersey, USA - DEC 28, 2017
