The reddish-hued Ace IPAs distinct malt flavor complements its generous portion of Northwest hops. This balanced brew achieves a harmony of malt and fruit flavors, the perfect contrast to the grapefruit and herbs in the hop profile.

Theydon_Bois (17593) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - NOV 16, 2014
Keg at the taproom, 07/11/14. Lightly hazed golden with a decent off white covering, good lacing ensues. Nose is bitter orange, citric pith, melon, orange squash, earthy hop tunes. Taste comprises light pine, straw, grapefruit, bitter orange. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close. Adequate IPA.

Ferris (13178) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 7, 2014
Draft - Piny Skunky hops, very fresh. Cloudy gold with nice rich beige head. Piny hops, with an upfront bitter hit and tropical fruit in the finish. Bitterness is a bit much for me.

"Dark pour. Body like a double, big and smooth without the alcohol. Malt forward with a very pleasant fruitiness, though the hops do get drowned out a little. Not bad, not great."

DuffMan (9638) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 13, 2015
Can. Gusher! Hazy deep golden, massive head. Grapefruit and pine, sour tang, scathing aspirin bitterness. Not enjoyable.

marcus (9393) - Sacramento, California, USA - MAY 2, 2015
Can shared by haggerty. Pours orange amber with a modest off-white head and a citrus aroma. There is a hearty pale malt flavor with a very bitter grapefruit finish.

douglas88 (8550) - Portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 26, 2013
16 ounce can from Beermongers. Pours a dark copper color with a large white head. A sweet nose of fruit, oranges especially, caramel. The flavor is quite nice: lemons, sweet perfume, some toffee, caramel, lemon rind, medium bitterness especially in the finish. Quite good. A sort of grainy earthy finish with bitter hops.

onceblind (7869) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUN 1, 2014
Hazy copper under a nice foamy off-white head. Pretty nice nose of sweet fruity caramel with some papaya and mango hops, perhaps a bit of pine and raw coconut as well. Really interesting hop nose. The flavor is a bit yeasty and muddled but theres this bright tropical tone shining through, with some nice piney bitterness and some rich cracker-y caramel. Its noticeably flawed but I still find it tasty.

16-oz can. Pours a murky medium amber with a gigantic dense and creamy tan head. Stringy lace here and there. Looks magnificent. Mild sweet lettuce-y nose. OK, already...I realize its a tough year for hops, but IPAs are really not supposed to smell like iceberg lettuce, even if it does happen to be spanking fresh iceberg straight out of a chilly wash. Its crisp and sweet and all, but its more on the savory salad side and even at that its not too deep into the good part of the salad side of the plate. Maybe they will bump up to a more dimensional and complex hop when yields go up again next year to meet demand. Anyway, the beer--it smells OK, but its neither on the fruity nor the piney side. Creamy body on the high side of medium, with soft carb. Caramel and toast happening, and heres where the hop profile could really bolster the beer. The malts have a fair bit to do with the flavor profile, appropriately so. But the hops just arent going blow for blow with them the way this is set up. Its a nice beer but it needs a bit more power.

16oz can picked up at Total Wine
A volcano erupted when I opened it up. Lost half of the can on my desk, floor and finally made it to the garbage can. Pours cloudy golden with a huge off-white head, good lacing. Aroma is floral, dusty, grapefruit and pine. Flavor is bitter grapefruit, pine, fruity and very bitter, dry
Not balanced, a very bitter finish. Would have been footbalmed if I had a whole can.

5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - AUG 11, 2012
Can: Amber, a little dark and fiery, moderate white head, foamy, nice lacing. Nice citrusy and tropical fruit nose. On the sweeter side, certianly not astringent or biting. Very smooth on the tongue, sweet citrus and tropical fruit notes. I am really impressed with this one. Body and mouthfeel are moderate. Some slight sweet pith and citrus peel on the backside. Very clean, not terribly bitter, all white remaining very flavorful. After having that busted Porter, this was really refreshing! If you want a hop bomb, this is not it. However, it is very flavorful.
