4.1/5  rDev +5.9%

Pours a hazed orange with a sweet sunshine highlighted glow. A fat head of cream colored foam falls slowly and clings to the glass. Nose is grapefruit and sweet orange. A sweet subtle bit of brown sugar for malt. An earthy light pine and spice. Taste is fantastic! This beer has the grapefruit in all it’s glory. From the pith to the peel. The tartness of it . Then to back it up is a sweet bright orange. It’s a west coast style malt with a touch of caramel and biscuit for weight that comes through as this beer warms. Finishes dry and with that earthy pine and spice. It has a moderate bitterness that does not eclipse all the flavors that want to linger at the back palate but slowly pushes them aside until you are feasting on a lingering bitter that is simply wonderful.

This beer drinks like the label .It’s like coasting on a bike . It’s fruity, it’s got a big flavor and a big finish it’s a pleasure and it could give plenty of the best IPA’s a good run for their money. (998 characters)

Pours from the can into a small tulip glass a copper color with a nice looking half finger white head atop.A good blast of citrus in the nose along with resin,much more American than English in my mind.The flavors are a mix of English earthy and leafy hop notes and American pine resin,a caramel/biscuit malt base holds up well to the hops.This a nice "hybrid" in it's English/American hop profile,a very good IPA from the northwest. (433 characters)

Slightly hazed orange copper hue with a bright white head forms thick foamy head with speckled lacing.

Aroma has citrus biscuit malts upfront bitterness hop pellets cloud the palate.

Flavor orange peel, citrus pith, dank pine and crushed aspirin are there light biscuit malt base minimal bready sweetness.

Mouthfeel, is medium bodied slightly resinous carries the hop oils across the palate with moderate carbonation.

Overall, I need a fresher can I can tell these hops are fading...I will revisit this beer! (512 characters)

I'm drinking this beer watching NFL Sunday football. I'll start off saying the can is absolutely classic. Old fashion. Nice Hops. Grassy Hoppy Taste. Dark Golden color look to it. Nice smell. I like this beer. A beer I need to have more of to give a definitive detail about it. But for a first time taste. I like it. This beer will be talked about more. CHEERS!!!! (364 characters)

Pours two fingers of head on a clear lighter straw colored body.
The aroma is bright pineapple, lemon, grapefruit and pine. Wonderful.
The taste is a moderate pine bitterness throughout, though well balanced.
The texture is soft and fizzy.
A great smelling and feeling IPA, average flavor in a hotly contested category. (319 characters)

refreshing, mildly hoppy...but overall lackluster (in nose, mouth, aesthetic, etc) (134 characters)
