bottle. Poured clear medium amber with a thin lasting off-white head. Citrusy orange aroma. Medium-light body with crisp carbonation and dry mouthfeel. Flavour of herbal hops, a pine note with sweet apricots. Sticky finish. MacBoost (1948) - Victor, New York, USA - OCT 21, 2014
12oz bottle. Pours a deep gold color with a forced carb type white head. Aromas of citrus and earthy hops. Taste is sweet and very lightly bitter. Flavors of cooked green beans and dumpster drippings. Fuck you. No. Cornfield (5569) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - OCT 20, 2014
I enjoyed this one. Truth is, I enjoy all hops, so these single hop offerings are of special interest to me... especially when "IPA" is on the label. Nice pour, a light caramel body with a sustained creamy head. The nose is both floral and earthy with a light malty sweetness beneath it. In the flavor, the malt is dry and grainy. The hops, although not intense, soon take over, floral and earthy with a tangy fruit flavoring. The bitterness is moderate but ever present and lasts long into the finish. Quite a pleasant surprise. jsmerig (1700) - Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 10, 2014

"more enjoyable than i thought it would be. with the kent goldings the only show in town, i actually kinda enjoyed the earthy nutiness and sweet malt combo, with a hint of tropical fruit in the flavor. not what i look for regularly in an ipa, but nice. more in the english style."

Aroma: Carmel malt on the nose. Apricots come through
Appearance: nice coper color with white 2 finger head pored from 12 oz bottle
Taste: seems off balance to me. The bitterness of hops clash with malt backbone.
Overall: a nice experience with the single hop varietal but very unbalanced and not something I would choose to drink again.

12 oz bottle. Amber in color with an average off-white head. Aroma is of spicy hops, herbal, light grass, and malt. Taste is of herbal tea, malt, caramel, and earth. travita (5008) - Dallas, Texas, USA - SEP 27, 2014
Bottle. The look is a chill haze, eggshell head, and bronze in color. The smell is florals, light fruits, noble hops, fir, and tar. The taste is similar, light bitterness, and caramel. Beerathon (1681) - Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 26, 2014
Comes off like an English pale ale rather than an IPA. Hops are soft fruits and floral. Not much happening here. Mediocre.
