Pours a slightly cloudy/hazy bright yellow color with white head. Light fruits, floral notes, citrus, and some pine on the nose; follows onto the palate. Medium bodied. Finishes with light fruit and piney resinous tones. Nice summer IPA.

Pour is a cloudy orange with a large white head. Aroma is a full on assault of hoppy orange peel bitterness. Flavor is a big citrus and bitter hop with a lot of tangerine and other various citrus type hops. No malt to get in the way of the hops other than leaving a very dry chalkiness that just cleanses the palate for the next sip. This is like chewing on a just ripe tangerine.

Taste of floral hops, mango, resin, tangerine and caramel. Medium body and medium/low carbonation. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draught @ Albion. Faintly cloudy rich orange with small frothy off-white head, very faint citrus peel aroma, medium carbonation, lightly bitter orange peel taste, citrus flavor, longish bitter hoppy finish. A good IPA.

short lasting white head... the brew is slightly hazed lite golden. Great punch of citrus hops that outweigh but don’t blow out some nice pale maltiness. Not quite bitter enough for a big PNW IPA, but the hops mid palate more than make up for it... Again, some pale malts help keep things in perspective. Good body and carbonation.. finish reminds me of tangerine juice without the sweetness.... I guess maybe just tangerine zest.

slowrunner77 (12044) - Reno, Nevada, USA - MAR 14, 2016
Floral and lightly fruity hops - doesn’t seem terribly fresh but I see no date on this or the session IPA. Not too impressed, but not bad either.

3.4
TimE (5817) - Tokyo, JAPAN - DEC 21, 2015
Fairly yeasty nose with some tropical fruit nose. Medium body, moderately bitter, but I did detect a bit of DMS. Light bodied. Big bitter finish. Not too bad, but nothing too special.

3.3
Ron (3959) - Rochester, New York, USA - SEP 18, 2015
bOTTLE. Pours a pale yellow with creamy white head and lace. Aroma is light sweet malt and floral hops. Flavor is a touch of sweet on the start with a nice floral bitter finish. The more you drank, the more the bitterness stood out. Medium body with good carbonation.

4.1
Braudog (6716) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - SEP 13, 2015
Bottle. Bright golden, energetically active, with a huge top. The aroma is bright and full of citrus bloom. This drinks with a slippery feel, rife with a good balance of American west-coast IPA styles ... snappy acidity, citrus and a nice solid base of chewy malt. (#6033, 9/13/2015)
