Hazy orange pour. Fluffy white, soapy looking head. Nice Hershey hoppy nose. Orange, floral. Fresh and crisp. Lemon, orange. Lightly touched by caramel malt. Very strong bitter finish. Soapy and foamy in the mouthfeel. Probably needs the bitterness turned down a touch. Malt is just right, hops are strong. Just really assertively bitter. Awesome addition to the local scene. Clearly not dumbed down for anyone. Tasty stuff.

Can 35,5 cl. Pours amber with a slight haze and a small, white head. Nose is more perfumy than citrusy, subtle perfume. Body is rich and caramellish, bordering toffee. Slightly greasy hops late leading to a late, solid bitterness. 280916

12 ounce can into pint glass, no can dating. Pours very haze deep orange/copper color with a 2 finger dense and fluffy light khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass. Aromas of big tangerine, pineapple, peach, mango, grapefruit, lemon/orange peel, pine, honey, light caramel, toasted biscuit, and floral/grassy earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of juicy citrus/tropical/pine hops and moderate dark/bready malt notes; with great strength. Taste of big tangerine, pineapple, peach, mango, grapefruit, lemon/orange peel, pine, honey, light caramel, toasted biscuit, and floral/grassy earthiness.Moderate pine/citrus rind bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of tangerine, pineapple, peach, mango, grapefruit, lemon/orange rind, pine, honey, toasted biscuit, and floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a while. Very nice complexity, robustness, and balance of juicy citrus/tropical/pine hops and moderate dark/bready malt flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance, and minimal lingering hop astringency after the finish. Light-moderate dryness from bitterness, increasing through the glass. Medium carbonation and medium-full body; with a very smooth, sticky/resinous, and creamy/bready balanced mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very nice IPA. All around nice complexity, robustness, and balance of juicy citrus/tropical/pine hops and moderate dark/bready malt flavors; very smooth and easy to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

12 oz. can. Pours a hazed amber color, with a one finger ecru head that leaves a smattering of lace. Citrus aroma with a strong caramel malt back bone. Lots of hop bitterness on the tongue. Malts arent quite as strong as the aroma would suggest. medium bodied with a lingering bitter finish.

Aroma is earthy and chalky with hints of pine and citrus, not too intense Appearance is oily amber with a light, dense, white head The beer is dry, sweet citrus up front that turns to a chalky, bitter pine at the finish with a dry piney aftertaste that lingers.

On tap in shaker pint glass at Jimmys Culpeppers. Aroma is floral dominant. Appearance is light brown with finger-width fluffy white head. Palate was medium bodied with average carbonation. Taste is mild floral sweetness balanced with mild bitter. Overall, a decent IPA. Not terribly complex but a good drink.

Draft. Rich, eye-catching deep copper color. Super-malty aroma. Flavors are a striking mix of big, piney hop bitterness, and deep chocolate malts that keep on chocolating. Wouldnt want this in July, but its pretty super in February.

This beer gets your attention. For a 12oz can from a reasonably new, smaller brewery, I wasnt expecting to get walloped in the face with hop bitterness quite like this. Its not a subtle beer, since it comes right at you with its effervescent bite, but it is satisfying and a bit complex.

Canette bue lhtel. Une robe dore un peu fonce avec une mousse blanche. Un nez avec des effluves de rsine, de malt et de fleurs blanches. Une bouche avec des notes amres, des saveurs de malt et de houblons, quon de plus. Agrable.
