mcberko (16051) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 1, 2013
650mL bottle, sent from Glouglouburp (thanks a lot, Dany), pours a hazy dark golden orange with a small off-white head. Nose brings out lots of orange fruits, candied sugar, and toffee -- seems over-malted for an IPA. Flavour is thankfully more hoppy and dry, and less sweet, bringing out notes of piney hops, a touch of candied oranges, and grapefruit. Quite bitter, dry and juicy on the finish. High drinkability - very refreshing on this hot day.

Ferris (13837) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 20, 2013
Bottle - Orange and tons of resin. Clear gold with no head. Resin and chalky with a well balanced bitterness. Decent but nothing special. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A hazed golden amber ipa with a thin off white head. In aroma, nice biscuit malt with resinous floral hops, grapefruit pulp, nice and smooth. In mouth, a nice sweet fruity biscuit malt with loads of citrusy floral hops, grapefruit pulp, treacle, light butterscotch, pleasant. On tap at Festibière de Gatineau 2016.

2013-09-01. Lightly hazy bright orange body foamy white head. 3+ Aroma of leafy green vegetation. Flavour is moderately bitter throughout and quite green and leafy. Average bodied palate, moderate carbonation. I did not particularly care for it. Bottle shared by a friend at board games night.

DuffMan (9920) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 25, 2013
Bottle shared at RBAG 2013. Orange amber with a fine particulate cloudiness and a creamy off-white head. Aroma is pleasant citrus and tropical fruit with sweet underlying malts. Fruity hop character, sweet malts, minerally dryness in the bitter finish. Tasty.

j12601 (9891) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - NOV 26, 2016
On tap at the brewery. Pours a clear gold with a thin white head. Soft caramel and almost buttery sweetness on the nose, malt, soft citrus. Medium bodied, soft and sweet at the start and then hugely bitter very quickly. Big bitterness into the finish, a touch of buttery sweetness again.

Palais est malté, caramel, pâle, pointe agrumes, pamplemousse pour une amertume plaisante. Retrouve le caractère efficace des houblons type C ponctué par un léger résineux.

MartinT (9617) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 28, 2012
UPDATED: NOV 1, 2013 My Bottom Line:
This authentic American-style IPA focuses on its resounding hop resins to latch on the taste buds, as citrusy tips and svelte cereals add depth.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam laces around the hazy blond, lacing nicely all the way down the pint glass.
-The lasting hop resins contribute lots of bitterness. This is hopheads only.
-The citrusy component is not overt, as it can be in many American IPAs, but it IS there throughout.
-A bit rough, but every bit the West Coast IPA; this could easily come from Oregon or Washington State.
-The nose could be cleaner in its presentation of hop aromatics.
