Mellow, not biting, but full bodied and rich. Not too filling, easy to drink. Strikes a nice balance.

Citrusy notes with a well balanced taste. Hoppy aroma with a not too bitter after taste.

Strong hop aroma. Full malt body, infused with super fresh hops, which are citrus forward with some pine. Bitterness in just the right amount; this is not a hop bomb. Perfectly balanced, and recommended! A-

Hazy light amber color with medium sized head. Fruity aroma, mellow, peachy with a touch of tropical fruit. Off-dry mouthfeel, but smooth; it has a delicate toffee-malt backbone, a bit crackery, the right canvas for a hoppy beer; correct bitterness level, with a reasonable portion of hop fruitiness and some hop resins.
Fresh and drinkable; the beer I like to drink.
On tap at Belmont Ststion. Colour...hazy gold with a thick white head. Nose...heavily conifer oriented hops with sugar frosted tropical fruits and lemon curd. Palate...zesty, vibrant and fresh with grapefruit pulp and pith, rose hips and apple leaf. The entire palate is bitter and dry with an almost alum like feel. The finish is long, bitter and zippy with dust coated hops.

Tap at Fiddlers.
Dark pour, pushing black IPA territory. Big pineapple nose is mouthwatering but leaves one worrying that things might come out too sweet -- but no, this beer is sufficiently hopped to easily hold its own. Juicy flavors, rich caramel from the hops, hints of scotch tape, just the smallest burnt edge that augments the whole package. I greedily downed a couple of these; really nice. after4ever (8025) - Mukilteo, Washington, USA - JUN 30, 2013
Draft at sb. Pours a cloudy dark orange with bright golden bronze edges. Dense creamy tan head that doesnt hang around forever. Loose stringy lace. Enormous sweet orange and orange rind nose, tangerines and grapefruits. Intensely fruity. Hop showcase. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Toasty caramel mid palate with sparkling fruit notes all over. Balanced, harmonious, and distinctly powerful. Beautifully done. MacDaddy (11) - - SEP 8, 2013
This beer is hoppy...a bit more so than I normally prefer, but unlike some other high hop beers that I have drank, this one began to grow on me. My wife surprised me with a growler of it, and I wasn’t sure I would finish it...that is not going to be a problem. Crit (4007) - Surrey, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 27, 2014

Can from Beer Cats. Hopvine IPA 6.1% made with Columbus, Chinook & Citra hops, continues the winning streak Schooner Exact is on - I’ve thoroughly enjoyed every canned IPA of theirs I’ve had. The beautiful can helps boost my enjoyment too.
The aroma on this is terrific, full of huge aromatic fruit & pine notes. The deep copper color is a beauty and it has a massive head of beige foam that lingers before leaving tons of lacing behind.
Medium-light bodied with a slightly raspy mouthfeel & a semi-dry finish that gives it a bit of a bite.
The taste has just enough malt sweetness to support the oodles & oodles of hops. Pine, citrus, passionfruit, prickly pear, this is one flavorful IPA.
