Pours a copperish/rich gold color with a minimal head leaving some lacing. Great aroma of well blended citrus and piney hops, sweet malt and a hint of biscuit. I enjoy how the hop combination compliments the light caramel malts. It's not a huge IPA but has more body than a typical IPA.

Old rating. Bottle from Old Town. Pours a copper amber color with a thin off-white head. Floral hops, pine needles, tree sap, caramel on the nose. Taste is fairly well-balanced with the malts and hops working together. Low ABV but nice resiny flavor.

MrHangover (4410) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - MAR 1, 2015
Bottle. Pours a clear darker amber beer with a small white head on top. Aroma is rahter floral, some herbal, leafy hops, grassy notes and a malty touch. Flavor is mildly bitter for IPA standards, yet full bodied and hoppy. Guessing it must be an older bottle, most hop characters have faded a bit, but its stlll nice and hoppy and certainly enjoyable. Decent.

Elnaer (11) - Michigan, USA - FEB 20, 2015
Very solid IPA. A little bit less hop bitterness than I would like, but for the low ABV its pretty solid. Very dark amber IPA here...and very malty too. This is a good session IPA in my view. Not my number one, but a very good beer.

Quick3Beers (1176) - East Falmouth, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 14, 2015
Pours a hazy dark amber from a bottle, aroma is a dank pine cleaner, flavor is a slightly malty, rather vegetal taste. But a good beer.

12oz bottle. Pours a light amber with an off white head. Mild hop aromas with notes of citrus and pine. Nothing over the top but a pretty decent IPA overall.

chinchill (4831) - South Carolina, USA - JAN 28, 2015
undated 12 oz bottle served in pint glass. {re-sampled and reviewed on 10/2011 with a sample that was significantly hazy). Pours a nearly clear amber with a 1-finger off-white head. Head has good durability. A - A clear aroma of citrus fruit rising from the table as I pour this beer. Upon closer examination, I find a sweet, complex aroma that is both fruity and floral. Theres a malt backbone here too. T - largely as indicated by the aroma, this is a relatively sweet IPA. Im sure the hop flavor will be too light for some, but this is the best Amer. IPA Ive come across for use as an introductory IPA for those used to less hoppy beers. Still, adequate strength of flavor and great quality in this well-crafted blend of hops and malt. Has a substantial hop flavor and aroma, yet has no hop bite; nor is it overly bitter. Perhaps a bit timid for style, but adequate hop flavor for production of a lasting hoppy aftertaste. M - body is a bit light but this is relatively smooth for an IPA and has a nice dryness in the finish. Good carboation. O - excellent choice as a sessionable and fruity IPA. Refreshing; not challenging.

From a bottle. Pour is medium amber with a one-finger white head. Aroma is fairly weak, vaguely citrus. Surprisingly thick mouthfeel for an IPA, with a hoppy taste characteristic of the style. Finish is smooth with a touch of bitterness.

12 oz bottle. Pours clear Amber color with light, creamy off-white head. Aroma is citrus, floral and mild herbal notes. Taste is similar with moderate bitterness and the citrus and herbal notes presenting themselves. Mouthfeel is medium-bodied, slightly oily texture, lively carbonation and a dry finish.
