Pours a slightly hazed deep gold into a tulip. White head with little retention recedes leaving spot lacing. Resin and pine aromas. Medium bodied with sweet caramel and resin upfront turning to dry, warming pine and pith in the lasting finish. bhensonb (15745) - Woodland, California, USA - NOV 12, 2017
Can from Bine & Vine. Pours translucent orangey gold with a creamy/bubbly white head. Aroma has a bunch of hop, it's mixed, but citrus is discernible. Med ++ body. It's somewhat juicy with lots of mixed non-citrus fruits, including tropicals, but the citrus is still discernible. It's fairly dry, nicely bitter, very hoppy, and starting to seem dank. Not strongly so, but ... Very good IPA. dambor (822) - Berlin, GERMANY - NOV 3, 2017
UPDATED: NOV 3, 2017 Pours dark yellow. Aroma: fantastic aroma of pines and citrus. Medium body, nice citrussy. alexsdad06 (10778) - West Chester, Ohio, USA - NOV 2, 2017
12 oz can from Peter. Pours a clear dark golden color with a medium sized off white head. The aroma and flavor have pale toasted malts, caramel, citrus and resiny hops up front, some earthy notes, moderate bitterness, great balance, flavors pop, grapefruit, and hints of black pepper, very solid IPA.

Melvin IPA has become a coveted hoppy ale in the Western US and it's for good reason. Melvin boasts a West Coast-style balance consisting of a thin malt layer and huge hop profile. Hazy orange coloring. This is certainly an outdoorsy hop bouquet. Dank, floral, pithy, leafy, piney, and grassy nose. Hop-forward and herbaceous earthy flavors. Resin, cannabis, pine needles, spruce, orange peel, grapefruit rind, and passion fruit. The bright, crisp bitterness should excite hopheads and will ward off most everyone else.

Pours tan with an orange hue. Aroma is earthy, citrus, floral and caramel. Taste is mild bitters with a touch of sweetness. Medium bodied, slick with some heft. Nice IPA and a good reminder of what an IPA was before the NEIPAs took over. ben4321 (6735) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - OCT 10, 2017
Draft at RnH-West. Hazy darker orange, thick off white head, strong / sticky lace. Bright citrus hop aroma, resin, pine, and a little rind. Drinks clean and fairly hoppy, minimal sweetness, not crazy bitter either. Pretty good. Sammy (12725) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 2, 2017
Medium orange colour. Brian can share. Less flavour than even their pale. Some hop flavour, boozy finish.
