Pours a hazy medium brown with a nice white head that goes down quickly. Aroma of citrus, hops and a bit of malty carmel. Nice hop flavor but also a bit of wheat undertones. Not quite as crisp in the mouth as some IPAs but still fairly easy drinking. With all of the great IPAs out there right now this probably isnt the best of the style, but its definitely not bad either.

Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 15, 2013
In short: A classic golden session fruity IPA of superior quality.
How: Bottle 22oz. consumed very fresh, a week or two after being purchase directly at the brewpub. Tasting session with Montreal friends.
The look: Cloudy golden body topped by a small off-white head.
In long: Nose has a smooth inviting character of refreshing fruits and grassy hops over a smooth toastiness. Taste has very nice toasted cereals, a smooth caramel flavor, plenty of juicy fruity hops (citrus fruits mainly), a tasty bitterness that is round and smooth. Everything is smooth in this beer, nothing aggressive here, this is however a tasty beer, a superior tasty session IPA. Id drink gallons of this beer. Another world-class IPA from the west-coast, sometimes Im jealous of people living on the west-coast, but then I look at my watch and it is 1pm here and realizes that it only 10am on the west coast and Im like Get over it west-coast, stop living in the past!

MartinT (9592) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 24, 2012
My Bottom Line:
Leafy, citrusy hop resins top cuddly cereal sugars in this very satisfying rendition of the West Coasts signature style.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A creamy sheet of foam garnishes the misty amber.
-The resinous hop bitterness is gripping, but leveled to the rest of the brews meidum-high intensity.
-Carbonation feels soft and natural, which doesnt impede on the aromatics at play.
-Malts dont offer much apart from a few sugary flavors, but that was to be expected.

Bottle.

phaleslu (9709) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 5, 2012
Draft at the brewpub. Pours a clear orange-gold with a small but resilient off-white head. Aroma of sweet and caramel malts complement orange and grapefruit citrus, pine, and flowers. Flavor of orange, grapefruit peel, apricot, pine resin, caramel, biscuit, and a bit of floral notes. Medium-bodied, with a juicy, resinous mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Excellent IPA. Not quite White Knuckle, but right there.

thome50 (1286) - Morro Bay via Orange County, California, USA - NOV 3, 2012
Draft at the brewery. Hazy deep gold and light head. Aroma is mild floral and cherry for some reason. Taste is peach, grass and nice hop bouquet. Love the peach and malt bill here. Nice single IPA.

Beerathon (1683) - Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 17, 2012
Oh, my! Tis good. Tis very freakin good. Huge floral boquet of hops. Deep flavor of malts, with fantastic bitterness. A slight reddish hue with this white head, but does leave stickly lacing. Excellent!
