22FL OZ ($5.99) great lil IPA here. not too high in the ABV or the IBUs. easy going IPA that has a smooth character to it. worth trying. One2remeber (247) - Bucktown, Ohio, USA - JUL 22, 2015
7 SRM, dark orange, dark yellow hue.
Rich biscuity malt, prune type caramel malt like a Crisp C77, floral, almost herbal, overall like an English IPA, reminiscent of a Peak Organic IPA.
Wonderful perfumy, flower taste, with a resinous hop powder pollen after taste. Drinks more smooth than anticipated, with a heavy malt nose I was expecting more of an amber ale (like AV Boont) type malt body. Not too much sweetness, just enough to compliment potent bitterness. Finishes a bit dry, wanting more, CO2 is in check, no big bite but enough to wake up the senses. Great head retention, sticky legs.
Great brew for an English IPA. pinkzambia (1931) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUL 11, 2015
Bottle: Gold color with quickly dissipating white head. Unusual skunky aroma and green hops. However, the flavors were not like the skunk in the nose. Sturdy hop flavors with a great balance of hop flavor and bitterness. ben4321 (6503) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JUL 10, 2015
Location: 12 oz can from Winooski Beverage, 7/10/15

Aroma: Has some pine and citrus/tropical hops, with a pretty strong toffee and bready malt backbone
Appearance: It pours a clear golden-orange color with a smaller, cream colored head and average lace
Flavor: The flavor is fairly strongly bitter, the strong, malty flavor isn’t particularly sweet
Palate: The body is medium-plus, feels fuller than you’d expect from a 6.7% beer, finishes dry
Nice, well-made IPA here. Has kind of a classic West Coast IPA feel to it. I would call this one closer to good then great, but I still really enjoyed it.
Can. Grapefruit citrus hop aroma with mild notes of pine. Pours opaque golden colored with a thin white head with mediocre retention and lacing. Starts with a lot of grapefruit citrus flavors with a little bit pine resiny hops. Finishes very smooth with grapefruit citrus and acidity coating the palate. Nice IPA.

1st June 2015: 22oz bomber into a La Chouffe tulip three times. Misty golden/yellow body, the head a white blanket on each pour, good lacing on each tipping of the bottle. Hoppy and semi-bitter with a good body depth of flavour: grapefruit notes leading the citrus feel to the brews base. Really enjoyed this beer, thought it classy and full flavoured. stevoj (5033) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUN 1, 2015
UPDATED: OCT 28, 2016 Growler from Jacksons. At first taste, was bowled over by citrus hops, however that quickly turned into a somewhat metallic, astringent finish. Medium golden body with foamy head. Aroma is grapefruit, malt, yeast. Taste hits up front with hops, and finishes dry and tinny. 10/28/16 Bottle from Whole Foods. Much smoother than original rating. Citrusy with soft head.Dry finish, mild bitterness. Not very bitter for an IPA. deyholla (11598) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAY 8, 2015
Bottle. Pours a clear pale gold with a white head that dissipates slowly to the edges. Aroma has a nice earthy bitter citrus with some sweet grains, a bit of grass and hints of pine and onion. Flavor has earthy bitter citrus as well with pine, grain and a touch of onion underlying. WABeerFiend (413) - - APR 25, 2015
Poured from a bomber into a tumbler on 03.23.15.
A: Orange rind, pine, grapefruit, and orange.
A: 1 1/2 finger head with an easy pour. The head stays fluffy. See through orange body.
T: Pine, grapefruit rind, and orange dominate. Oak (maybe nuttiness) and honey are subtle.
P: Crisp and finishes clean.
O: The first time that I tried this, the hops had died. The pine and grapefruit were much stronger in a fresh bottle from Safeway. This is a very nice IPA in the West Coast style.
