Pours a nice amber copper with small white head, minimal lacing. Aroma of herbal and floral hops, slight citrus, and solid caramel malt. Flavor matches well with a great balance and a very slight mineral metallic taste very late in the aftertaste. Very solid offering and quite happy that I picked it up. rumproasts (5359) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - JUN 20, 2013

355mL thanks to BrewtopiaofPJ. Pours a clear amber, deep orange. Medium white foam. Okay to weak retention. Nose is cheesy, sharp lemon verbena, sugary grapefruit candies. Taste is stickier specialty malts, harsher astringency. Tea tannic finish. Showing all my pet peeves for this style.

Hazy amber color with a small off white head.
Earthy nose, with light caramel, faint nuts and fresh grain.
Juicy malt, medium bitterness, nice fruity notes and pleasant nuttiness.
Medium bodied, not very dry, well balanced. OK strongpieman (1651) - Mount Airy, Maryland, USA - JUN 1, 2013
Bottle. Clear golden beer with a decent head. Standard hoppiness, medium body, moderate bitter finish with no sharpness. Overall good. pianotu (69) - USA - MAY 27, 2013
A very balanced and satisfying IPA--I wished for more piney nose but it's hard to complain about it.
