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

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.

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.

Garrold (4964) - 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.

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 ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

strong citrusy aroma of those similar to cascade, centennial, and citra. golden and hazy with nice long lasting head. Taste is hop forward but has malty notes. Not overly bitter and finishes smoothly.

Bottle pour into nonic pint glass from Smileys Discount Beverage. Appearance is lightly hazy, light gold with beautiful sparkle, 2+ finger-width white creamy head with good retention and nice soapy lacing. Aroma is citrus, tropical fruit, mild dank earthy resin, herbs. Taste is tropical fruit with citrus and light resin with second half toasted bready malt. Palate is medium-to-full bodied with thick texture, average carbonation and mix of fruity/bready finish. Overall, a superb beer that tastes and feels more like a DIPA than just an IPA. I usually find their IPAs too bitter but this one is more restrained and focused on flavor. Well done.
