WisconsinBeer (716) - St. Paul, Minnesota, USA - NOV 19, 2012
Bottle. Pours a hazy golden orange color. Minimal head. Flavor is soft malts, slightly sweet. Finish is clean and hop forward, leaning towards herbal/grass. Light bodied. Decent example of the beer.

corkyrory66 (1989) - BELGIUM - JUL 8, 2017
Ipa de 6,5 % abv, avec nous dit le brasseur du "finest" malt, des houblons "selected", et une levure "pure cultured" … Avec tout cela, on ne sait pas grand-chose sur la composition … et selon une habitude bien répandue aux States, on ne peut même pas voir l’âge de la bête !! Couleur ambre caramel, à la clarté nette. Bulles fines, peu nombreuses. Mousse beige clair, à gros flocons, qui tombe très vite. Arômes de fruits confits, cannelle, miel, résine. 1ère bouche douce, à l’entame fruit/résine/poivre. Arrière-bouche très peu équilibrée, dominée par la résine. 2ème bouche un peu mieux organisée, plus fruitée. Arrière-bouche où la résine revient, mais modérée. 3ème belle bouche douce, fruitée et résinée. Arrière-bouche à l’amertume équilibrée. Longueur où on retrouve résine et épices avec des agrumes, mais tout cela est un peu désordonné. Jambes lisses, collantes en haut. Levure un peu épicée, belle ligne. Alcool correct, mais sans aucune maîtrise sur les saveurs. Finale linéaire. CONCLUSION : une ipa qui ne passe pas la rampe, et ne franchit pas le rubicon non plus … (7/3/6/3/13)

jefcon (1847) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - APR 20, 2017
A straightforward IPA with all the right elements. Bitter, sharp hops accented by tropical fruit and some scrubby pine. Slightly sticky. Bitter finish. Not too high ABV. A fine balance of malts in the background.

Benzai (15586) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JUN 27, 2016
Bottle @ home. Not sure why the description says it’s "golden in color", as mine is without a doubt hazy orange to dark orange colored, but whatever. Medium sized beige head. Aroma is of malts and hops, lightly resinous. Taste malts, lightly caramel, hops, resin, resinous bitterness and some malt bitter. Sticky texture, medium body and suitable generous carbonation. Quite pleasant.
