Clear reddish amber with full head. Pine and malt aroma. Bitter taste, pine, raisins. NosirIwont (2660) - Husum, DENMARK - DEC 27, 2016
Bottle. 6.7%. Best before 30.04.17. Pours a slightly hazy, golden dark amber, with a light tan/yellowish head. Good lacing. Mild aroma; fruity hops, malt in the background. A wee bit dusty. Sweetish note as it warms, as well as a hint of overripe fruit and a light fat note. Further warming brings out a spicy hint. Flavour is fruity hops with malt in the background. Light citrus, lighter pine, a bit fat as it warms. Dry, bitter hop finish. Has a sort of a bite somehow; not an ’apparant’ bite, but still. Hint of liquorice as it warms and a mild alcohol burn. Lingering light grassy note. Overall good. 25.12.16. magsinva (1493) - Virginia, USA - DEC 27, 2016
Bottle from Sierra Nevada Mills River - while I can appreciate the piney hop forward mild bitterness if a good IPA, it still isn’t my style. So while I think this is a good example of the style, it’s not my cup of tea.

Bottle from Sierra Nevada Mills River. Pours orange with a thin white head. Leaves some lacing in the glass. Fragrant floral and citrus notes on the nose and tongue. Solid bitterness on the finish. Definitely has a freshness to it that you’d expect from a wet hop IPA. Nice! Pours jjsint (3652) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 26, 2016
Bottle from Total Wine & More, St Petersburg. Golden amber with a big cream-coloured head. Heavy on piney hop in the scene, with some mango and caramel. Lovely and strong. Taste is quite bitter, but not exceedingly so, and there are undertones of grapey sweetness throughout. A bit of a medicinal finish but it’s short-lived. Lingering resin in the aftertaste. An excellent little concoction. k0mpsa (3235) - Tuusula, FINLAND - DEC 24, 2016
Bottle from systembolaget passagen, stockholm. Copper color, white head. Aroma has caramel notes, malty notes, grapefruits. Sweet caramel malts on taste, crispy hops, grapefruit. murran (708) - - DEC 23, 2016
Pours an amber body with a medium head. Nice hoppy aroma. Taste is creamy with dominant hops. Subtle bitter end. All in all a nice IPA. Listigovers (1384) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 23, 2016
Bottled 09/28, drank 12/22. Copper coloured with lingering head that leaves lace. Smells malty, some caramel, earthy and sappy hops. Taste is well balanced by malts, grass, full piney hop flavour with great aftertaste, wish it was a bit fresher but still a very nice beer.
