I was expecting a lot due to the hype this received, but was sort of let down, not sure if it was bc my expectations were too high, does have a nice hop profile, tastes more like a dipa than an ipa, still very solid and worth seeking out, just not up to the 100 rating I expected. Still well above average. Gets better as you go.
Draught. Pours a hazy amber-y gold with a medium, foamy off-white head. Aroma is mango, citrus, pine, dough, floral hops, and light soap. Taste is mango, bread, grass, pine, some lemon, and resin. Tiny amount of buried grapefruit. Slightly earthy finish. Moderately bitter, although it grows in bitterness the more you drink. Light-medium body. Moderate carbonation. Creamy-ish mouthfeel. Mouth is lighter than expected - almost a touch watery - and resin is a bit palate fatiguing. Taste is surprisingly soft. Boutip (6312) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 4, 2017

Taste is a mix of strong citrusy hops notes with some light grassy notes with light pale malt also noticeable. Body is about average with excellent carbonation. Solid IPA with almost no bitterness and lots of delicate flavours. Zymurgeist2 (2179) - Redwood City, California, USA - APR 27, 2017

UPDATED: JAN 29, 2017 Draft at Bru Craft. Hazy yellow gold pour with a good show of off-white foam. Lots of lace. Strong hop notes with soft edges. Spruce tips. Lemon zest. Bamboo. Apricot. Varnish. Easy drinking but packs a flavorful hop punch. Dry. Well balanced. bhensonb (15079) - Woodland, California, USA - JAN 17, 2017
Tap at Cap Tap. Pours translucent gold with a white head. Aroma is mild fruit with a touch of evergreen. Med body. Flavor is citrus/pine and pale fruits with moderate caramel support. Bitter enough, hoppy enough to think dank is near. Really well balanced and very tasty. ByTheirLimpin (321) - New York, USA - DEC 22, 2016
On tap. Poured a lemon yellow wheat with a slight haze. Very lacy white head. Palate is dry lemon pine balanced against a saltine crackers grain. Crisp mouth. Clean dry finish. Yum. Garrold (5170) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 21, 2016
Tap. Reservoir, Waterbury, VT. Just about clear, bright gold. Film of lasting, clingy, white head. Nose has squeaky clean pine, and minty, hop. Marmalade on toast backdrop. Notes of pine needle and sappy wood. Taste is sappy sweet, getting resinous and slick bitter. Light to medium body. Well carbonated, cutting through the sappy chew. Long, light, resinous bitter finish. Great stuff. baraciisch (3162) - California, USA - NOV 16, 2016
Funny that the first thing I noticed was how west coast this tasted for an east coast IPA... Draft pour. Slightly hazy yellow orange in color... Aroma is bursting with tropical fruits, mango. Flavor is dry, lots of tropical hops... Delicious
