A nice solid IPA. Citrus and crisp. Well balanced. Definitely worth the try.

Marstonlad (907) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAY 10, 2017
Can from Alko, Helsinki. Pours cloudy amber with a big, frothy head. The aroma features hops in abundance: citrusy fruitiness with pine and resin; perhaps also a sweetish malty element lurking in the background. Taste is initially light sweet and malty, as indicated by the aroma, and then turns bitter and hoppy; bitterness is definitely above medium but does not reach brutal levels. Hoppy flavours of grapefruit, pine needles and orange sweep aside malty flavours. The palate is medium to full-bodied, average in carbonation. Very tasty, solid work.

sudsmeister (78) - Westminster, Colorado, USA - OCT 15, 2011
This is less hoppy and more malty than most IPAs I have tried. Still, a nice balance. Pours a pale amber with a quickly settling head. Finish is on the dry side. Alcohol well hidden. Goes down easy. Nice.

Bottle via stateline. Poured into a snifter, amber colored orange, decent head. Danky aroma of hops on the nose. Reminds me of a "wet" hopped brew. Taste isnt bitter but still hoppy. Flowers, a little danky/wet hop taste. Well balanced, easy to drink. Body: Light, low/medium carbonation. Overall: Nice IPA, that I would drink/buy again. Thanks to Matt for the recommendation.

12oz bottle
Aroma: citrus, pine, toasted malt, floral
Taste: resin, citrus, toasty malts, caramel
Not a bad IPA, but a little out of balance. This is a very resinous IPA.

emacgee (4680) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - NOV 6, 2011
Pours soft golden amber with two fingers of sticky white head. Very resinous and fresh nose, lots of citrus zest and a hint of pine with a very oily hop profile. Dry and zesty palate with a very resinous and oily hop character. Citrus rind bite and a very light sweetness.

Aubrey (3516) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - NOV 16, 2011
Love the label design, especially the text on the left side. Nice-looking beer, too; bright gold with a frothy-foamy head. Has some bright flavors and aromas. Lots of snappy fruit (lemon, grapefruit, tangerine) and evergreens (pine, spruce). It’s also spicy, floral and grassy. Malts are nutty, bready and cracker-like, with a caramel-like sweetness at its core. Somewhat bold, but also balanced. Solid beer.

sloth (2910) - Ceciltucky, Co., Maryland, USA - DEC 13, 2011
Thin white head with fair retention and decent lace. Lightly hazy gold colored ale. nose is gentle with spicy hops, light citrus and faint malts. Lightly medium body, nice carbonation, lil oily. Nice balance of citrusy hop flavors and light caramel malts, lil grainy and bready, light earthyness. Finishes fairly dry, lightly fruity.Easy quaffer for the ABV. Bottle from statelineliquors.

mar (5423) - Dallas, Texas, USA - DEC 18, 2011
Bottle thanks to thirdeye11. Super fresh hops, grassy, citrusy, and light florals. Very smooth on the palate, earthy, florals, light citrus, smooth finish.

3.7
Beaver (1807) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - DEC 24, 2011
12oz bottle. Pours a hazy golden orange with a big fluffy white head that retains well and laces the glass.

The aroma is bready malts, some tangy melon and some dank, resiny, piney hops.

The flavor is a little sweet fruit with a big resiny almost charred bitterness. The mouthfeel is light to medium bodied and a little watery.

Overall, a pretty solid IPA. A little more sweet fruit and less char in the flavor to better balance it and a little more body and this would be excellent.
