12oz bottle shared. Medium malt aroma with some mild hops. Citrus mostly. Flavor is mild to medium citrus hops. Definite malt base. Overall this is like the American wheat without the wheat but a touch more hoppy. Leighton (21511) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 26, 2014
Bottle at the cabin in NH. Pours cloudy, red-gold with a frothy, white cap. Toasted bread on the nose with aged piney hops. Medium sweet flavor with following-on bready malts, dry pine, slight brown sugar and citrus rind. Medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Moderate sweet at the end with dry and lightly toasted bread, pine, more brown sugar. OK. Perhaps a touch faded. thegreenrooster (4448) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - FEB 8, 2014
Pour is a hazy orange with a large white head. Aroma is a real nice floral hop. Flavor is more malty with some sweet caramel then comes a herbal hop. Another IPA where the malt far overpowers the hop presence. It’s still a decent beer but overall very average. thomas15 (689) - Alabama, USA - FEB 2, 2014
Aroma is floral bitter pine. Appears amber gold with ample slightly off white head . Tastes very bitter with more pine that floral qualities, there is some tropical fruits in the taste but bitterness prevails. vyvvy (6523) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - JAN 29, 2014
Pours clear copper with a large off-white head. The aroma has toasted bready malt, pumpernickel, orangees, spices, pine and funky hops. It has a medium body that is a bit rough with fairly soft carbonation. The roughness smooths at the end. The flavor starts with tropical fruit, caramel malt, pine, spice and some malt sweetness that balances. The finish has a touch of syrup and earthy hops. Good IPA.

12 oz bottle shared by my buddy, served cold in a tulip glass. Hazy light copper with lots of floaters and basically no head. Sweet caramel maltiness, burnt sugar, a little bubble gum, nice pine, resin, peach/apricot, a bit floral. Medium body, somewhat relaxed carbonation. Sweet caramel, slight burnt sugar, pine, slight eucalyptus, somewhat fruity, a bit of that bubble gum; off-dry with big bitterness and a long resinous, burnt sugar finish.

Bottle. Pours a hazy orange. Aroma of pine, yeast, wheat. Has a sweet finish for an IPA. Balanced but leaving you wanting more from an IPA. Ok.

Really good IPA from a brewery I haven't heard of before. Reminds me a lot of Bells Two Hearted, which is high praise from me. If this was available around me, I'd by the hell out of this.

12 ounce bottle into pint glass, bottled on 9/20/2013. Pours moderately cloudy orange amber color with a 2 finger dense cream colored head with fantastic retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass. Aromas of grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, orange zest, lemon zest, pine, floral, grass, light caramel, bread, and floral earthiness. Very nice aromas with good complexity of hop notes with a fair amount of malt balance; and good strength. Taste of grapefruit, pineapple, tangerine, orange zest, lemon zest, floral, grass, pine, light caramel, wheat, bread, and floral earthiness. Good amount of earthy pine bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of citrus, citrus zest, pineapple, floral, grass, pine, light caramel, and bread on the finish for a good bit. Very nice complexity of bright citrus/floral hops with a moderate malt balance; with a nice malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a lightly creamy, crisp, and moderately sticky 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 good complexity of citrus/floral hop flavors with moderate malt balance; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering. kermis (13882) - The Hague / Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - OCT 12, 2013
