Christos (5791) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - AUG 13, 2016
(Moylans Nor Cal IPA) Tap at MOUT Bierfestival, Nijmegen, 150 ml glass.
Deep orange colour on the body, a bit hazy, with a tall and thick white head on top, very good retention.
Aroma seems to be a bit weak, there are though some caramel malts, orange peel and fruity notes to be found.
Taste has some hops, caramel malts, citrus, orange, with a long bitter finish.
Medium thin body, carbonation on good levels.
Good, pretty easy to drink. fkoolen (1216) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - JUL 1, 2016
Taster @ Mout Bierfestival, Nijmegen. Clear golden colour, offwhite creamy head. Resinous, spruce, grapefruit, caramel sweet malty backbone. Nice crisp, building bitterness in the aftertaste. Good body, low-medium carbonation. fiulijn (20516) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 5, 2016
Draught at St. Augustine’s, Vancouverbeerplace (1701) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 4, 2016
Golden color, just hazy, with compact head. Nice resiny hops aroma, but mild. Dry mouthfeel, the malt has straws and some cereals character, the hop has a herbaceous touch, some hop resins in the final. Total lack of fruit, in case you are looking for it.
Ok IPA, nothing special.
On tap at St. Augustine’s. Aroma candied tropical fruits, citrusy. Taste is hoppy piney bitterness. Same aftertaste. Not bad.

Pours cloudy golden. Aroma is hoppy, pine and grass. Taste is hoppy, lots of grass. Lacking balance. Pyrmir (6100) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - MAY 10, 2016
Bottle sample at Kalmar Ölfestival. Hazy golden with white head. Aroma is citrusy, pale malt, pine and slight caramel. Taste is similar, pine more present in the mouth. Moderately bitter finish . SHIG (4962) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - APR 24, 2016
Draft: Poured a golden with white head. Aroma was light hops. Taste was malty and hops mix, pretty balanced. stevoj (5046) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAR 9, 2016
Bottle from Boise Co-op. More earthy and dirty than the norm for West Coast IPAs. Musty, funky hops and malt. Lightly hazy golden pour with small creamy head. Gentle Fruit overtones, not overly bitter, great gateway IPA. phaleslu (10272) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 28, 2016
Draft at the brewery, served in a flight. Pours a clear bright gold with a small white head that leaves spots of lace in the glass. Notes of lemon citrus, grass, pale and sweet malts, tea, herbs, and grass. Light-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a sweet, bright mouthfeel. This was the biggest standout of the bunch - a good West Coast IPA.
