Hazy blond color with medium head. Intense aroma, yellow fruits, apricots; mellow; later, a bit of pungent animal aroma appear. The mouthfeel is quite dry and lean, although also minimally oily; good malt flavor, a bit toasty, and with some fudge/toffee; very strong bitterness; the hopping is resiny and fruity, although in the very end there is a bit of chicory bitterness; I may sense infinitesimal diacetyl, not enough to disturb though.
UPDATED: JAN 5, 2013 22 oz. bottle, pours a clear orange with a small white head. Aroma of oranges, citrus hops, some citrus zest and just enough malt backing. Flavour of dry citrus zest, citrus hops, some dry orange-like fruits and crisp malt. Fairly standard IIPA, with not so flavouful a hop profile. Finishes quite dry and crisp. Uninteresting, but drinkable, IIPA. Ferris (15267) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 13, 2016
Draft -Sweet malty and candy floss hops. Clear gold with a decent white head. Light caramel malts and sweetness with some balanced bitterness. Decent. bhensonb (15190) - Woodland, California, USA - FEB 27, 2013
Bomber from Malt & Vine. Pours hazy copper with a foamy/creamy near-white head. Aroma is very hoppy, but it’s not harsh resin or citrus. Sort of mixed floral/citrus over a light, pleasant caramel backdrop. Near full bodied. Flavor is very hoppy - there’s hop burn. Still it seems floral and citrus. Amazing amount of hop here. Not even noticing the malt til I think about it. Suddenly I get light pitted fruit - apricot. Amazing. (that’s twice for that word). This finishes smoothly and hugely bitter. Extremely pleasant to drink.

Flavors of biscuit, earthiness, skunk bud, mustiness and pine with a crisp dry bitter lingering pine finish. Not sure what Beaver was drinking but it does’nt sound like what I had.
