Pours burnt orange with an off-white head. Aroma is floral, floral and more floral. Some earth and caramel came through as it warmed. Taste was sweet with a nice bitter kick. Medium bodied with an almost oily texture, very smooth. Very enjoyable, would be fantastic in the summer. Ernesto987 (6050) - Arizona, USA - NOV 3, 2012
extrremely floral IPA, hibiscus and honey. This is very cool, never even heard of this hop before. thirdeye11 (6162) - Dallas, Texas, USA - NOV 29, 2012
(Draught) clearish medium-light gold, thick creamy offwhite head with excellent lacing. Nose of biscuit, freshly malted grain, light citrus rind, German hops, light earthiness. Taste of lightly earthy hops, sweet cream (seriously reminds me of a cream ale), medium carbonation, creamy finish, light orange rind finish, easy drinking and light spicy finish. blipp (9713) - La Mesa, California, USA - DEC 16, 2012
Draft. Pours golden orange with a white head. Floral, lightly citric, and some woody/cedar-like notes, on a pale plain malty base. Quick spicy hoppy finish. Solid stuff. Slipstream (2704) - USA - DEC 8, 2012
On tap at Good Beer, part of a single hop series by Sixpoint. I never heard of this New Zealand hop before, and it is a nice one - mellow and smooth, with a bit of melon and peach. Light bitterness. Very nice.

In short: A smooth floral and slightly spicy blond IPA.ben4321 (6739) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - MAR 26, 2013
How: Tap at Three Penny Taproom, Montpelier VT.
The look: Cloudy pale blond body topped by a small persistent white head.
In long: Nose is smoothly hoppy with soft floral notes, a bit dank, some watermelons. Taste offers a discreet pale malt body with almost no sweetness flavors. I think this shy malt backbone is appropriate for the smooth character of the hop profile. Far from intense, hopping is mostly floral, a bit grassy and with light spicy notes. Round bitterness of low-medium intensity. This is a relatively smooth IPA, tasty but never aggressive, a highly sessionnable beer but not one for the hopheads and bitterness lover. And I think it is pretty racist that pub owners force me to pay for my beer just because I’m not from the middle-eastern and with a bomb strapped to my body, racist I tell you.
Location: Draft at RnH, 3/26/13

Aroma: The nose has floral hops, grapefruit, citrus rind, and some grainy notes
Appearance: This one has a hazy yellow pour, with a white head, and lots of sticky lace
Flavor: The taste is light sweet first and then it gets slightly more bitter later on
Palate: The body is medium, it is a hint sticky, with a dry, almost abrupt finish to it
This one is actually pretty solid. It isn’t an absolute standout of an IPA, nor it is a hop bomb, but I was happy to try it. I’ll have to be on the lookout for more of beers from this series.
Gold with a white head. Nose is bitter,light spice, floral, and fruits. Easy on the palate, bitter hops, followed by gummy hops, and a spiced finish. esjaygee (3906) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 22, 2012
On tap at Ervs Mug. Hazy amber with a creamy tan head. Aroma of tropical fruits, pine and pale malt. Taste in different with garlic, pine, citrus, pale malt and a touch of nobility. Not very sweet with a moderate bitter finish.
