Thin white head. Clear golden pour. Lovely hoppy aroma and bitterness . Nice brew. MartinT (10037) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 10, 2013
My Bottom Line:Bendrixian (1514) - Canadiana, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 10, 2013
Floral aromatics and otherwise earthy hop resins bounce around this IPA’s polished mouthfeel, leading to alcohol warmth and leveled bitterness.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam skirts the clear pale amber shine.
-Malts don’t offer much in the way of profile ; light sugars, that’s it. I would have preferred toastier malts with such a hop profile.
-Complexity is low, but drinkability is high for this abv .
-The refined mouthfeel is a great feature.
Clear amber colour with a real foamy head. big hoppy aroma and quite resinous. similar flavours but backed by a malted/grain or cereal note. very tasty!!

Look: Dark amber/ coppertone, 2 finger off-white head. Smell: Citrus, herbal/earthy, pine, fruity esters, caramel. Taste: Dank, floral, citrus rind, resinous wood, spiciness (almost an onion like quality), nice sweet toasty malt, nice medium dry bitter finishes up things. Feel: Medium-light body, heavy carbonation. Overall: This is very good. I wish it weren’t 8% because it drinks like a 6% brew. This brew could get me into trouble. This brew isn’t Earthshattering but is still very solid. This brew is worthy. mikesaum (711) - Newark, Ohio, USA - FEB 9, 2013
Pours dark orange with a nice khaki head that leaves good lacing. aroma isny as pungent as i expected but its still good, very citrusy, hints of orange and grapefruit, some mango, toffee malt. Taste is bright and citrusy with the hips and an awesome creamy mouthfeel with a bitter finish that doesn’t. overpower.

Can picked up at Premier Gourmet. Pour is a true copper , white head and a good amount of lacing. Nose is a nice floral hop. Tastes as expected, sweet hop , a little bitter, with caramel mealtimes alcohol is not quite you would suspect because I is so subdued. Very good.

Pours a hazy honey orange with medium head and decent lacing. Big hop aromas, pine, lemon, grassy and a little sweet. Taste is very earthy with a lot of pine resin, grass, lemon zest, orange peel and a slight malt backbone. Finish is dry and slightly astringent. ADfan (870) - Orange County, California, USA - FEB 1, 2013
Honey color in the glass with a medium head. It has tropical fruits, citrus and major hops. It has a malty taste up front, resin, mangos and a caramel sweetness. Well balanced with a great finish. b33r (875) - Ohio, USA - JAN 31, 2013
Deep orange color with medium diminishing fluffy off-white head. Aroma has huge fruity, floral hops. Flavor is surprisingly malty up front with a bitter finish. Seems a little smoky or woody like a cigar. Very interesting bold IPA jpowings (2) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JAN 30, 2013 does not count
A strong beer to go with it’s strong flavors. Must like IPA’s and has a good overall taste. Doesn’t pair as well with spicy food as other beer of this style, but most those don’t boast the abv of this.
