Can at home. Pours clear dark gold with a medium, frothy white head, medium retention with light lacing. Aroma is pine, citrus, and herbal hops with lime notes, pear esters and biscuit malt. Flavor is moderate hops and bitterness, light esters, supporting crisp malt and a dry finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. PhilJackson80 (531) - Oklahoma, USA - FEB 1, 2015
12 oz bottle. Tasted on 1/31/15. Bottle courtesy of Judy & Pete. Aroma had floral, pine & a little dank smell to it. Taste was good with a light malt backing & a lot a hop bitterness. Overall a good IPA.

Can. Cloudy golden. Aroma, in descending order, pine, citrus, grass. Flavor is possibly past prime. Nutty influence on pine and grass. Average IPA. BuckeyeBoy (7680) - Boise, Idaho, USA - DEC 25, 2014
12oz bottle picked up while in Albuquerque. Pours out a golden topped with a nice head. Nose is citrus hops bread malts and a nice tropical fruit twist aswell. Taste is as the nose with some pretty dank hops nice and solid hop profile with a strong malt bill. CJack (52) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - DEC 23, 2014
Bottle pour, golden clear with thin white head, some lacing. Aroma is hop resins, flavor is astringent hop bitterness with hardly any malt balance. Quick bitter finish. Not enough late addition hops or malt profile in this recipe, underwhelming IPA.

Bottle. Lighter visuals, bordering on yellow while a bit hazy. Decent floral aroma; light character overall, but a nice sessionably easy to drink, slightly puckering ale. (#5884, 12/13/2014) Ctplt777 (530) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - NOV 27, 2014
This one is a perfect score for me. This has everything I could ever want in an IPA. So much citrus, pine, and tropical fruit. The taste is hoppy and bitter but not overly bitter. It’s so well balanced, and complex. Theres something I can’t figure out and it’s so good. This is a phenomenal IPA. BMMillsy (1788) - Florida, USA - NOV 25, 2014
Can dated 10/20/14, gotten as a trade extra. Thanks! Pours mostly clear golden orange color with a one finger white creamy head. Nice citrus and pine aroma, light grassiness, mild sweetness, nice. Flavor is light citrus, some sweet pineapple, but of mango, mild bitter. Light to medium body, medium carbonation. Nice beer. MrBeerFanatic (1058) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - NOV 9, 2014
Pours a light amber color with a light boozy head. Aromas of citrus, peach, apricot and light caramel. Flavors of citrus, slight grass, apricot, slight peach and a light caramel backbone. Medium sweet medium bitter. Only a slight dry finish. umich03jm (3513) - Flat Rock, Michigan, USA - SEP 13, 2014
Bottle. Hazy gold pour with a nice foamy head that fades to a nice film. Aroma is slightly dank. Juicy citrus and light caramel. Tastes smooth but could use some more hops really. Sweet pale malt and light caramel stick out the most with a hint of juicy citrus and flowers. Very little bitterness. Medium body. Decent IPA.
