Jjg226 (71) - Staten Island, New York, USA - JUN 17, 2013
Drink within 90 days of May 23, 2013. Served in Spiegelau IPA glass. Pours a hazy amber with a white, creamy two-finger head that settles into a nice frothy cap. Nice lacing and legs. Rich smell of grapefruit rind and pine. Citrus pith strikes the palate first and finishes with a heaping dose of pine. Sweet malt backbone balances the bitterness nicely. Medium body with lively carbonation. A superbly crafted IPA that gives the west coast IPAs a run for their money! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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 (6380) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 4, 2017
Bottle: Poured a clear yellow color ale with a nice large pure white foamy head with good retention and excellent lacing. Aroma if dominated by strong citrusy undertones with some light grassy and piney notes also noticeable. 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.

bhensonb (15211) - 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.
