look: 5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: Orange copper or light honey color. Hazy clarity. Head is creamy with above average lacing and lasting.

Smell/Taste: Aroma is nicely aromatic. can smell the hop. Taste orange or grapefruit peel... or some other exotic fruit. hops are very complex and interesting (a very good interesting). bottle says it uses New Zealand hops. Malt is present and balances the hop rather well.

Feel: smotth, light carbination, medium bodied, avg-long lasting with a wetish finish.

Overall: Very good, I really enjoyed the interesting exotic flavors. Will def be buying again.

A: Poured steady and observed a beautiful mixture of copper brown and gold elixir as it finished to a one finger lingering head.

S: Slightly floral:roselike, fruity: strawberry, peach, honey..some malt. It's not your average west coast ipa because of the new zealand hop usage but I really like it, enjoyable scent

T: A Fruit & pine taste lingers bitter, not complex on malt so hop taste is forward. There's some tang and alcohol to it as it warms. New hop flavors made this an enjoyable brew to try. Different strains are always fun to try, especially here when it is a unique hop.

MF: Has a lighter to medium weight, refreshing, session-possible?!,
Bubbly, hoppy.

Finale: Innovative tasting IPA, really enjoy the different flavors/scents here. Comparable in quality and taste to great west coast IPAs on the market. Try this out, support local beer,
trip your taste buds out.

Poured a nice red/orange color with white head!

Aroma was out of this world with loads of citrus, grapefruit, and lemon.

Taste was citrus at first with a little sweetness and a very very nice hop bitter towards the end.

Taste and smell of some bread notes!

I enjoyed this just a couple days old directly at the brewpub! So good I had to buy a growler, trust me I'm going back for more!

An really good beer. Came out smelling citrus and a dark then ipa red color with a thin white head. Taste was hoppy and a sweet herbal taste. There was a Crisp clear mouth feel. And without a a doubt this was one drinkable beer, lite enough to drink more then one of.

Wow. Best one on the menu. It was perfect. Poured a nice hazy deep red color. Nice 2 finger head that stayed the entire tme. Exceptionally hoppy in the nose. A little spice behind it. The taste was right on. Sweet, creamy, citrus like grapefruit and lemon, with a very floral ending almost sour at the end but in a good way. Mouthfeel was very smooth and creamy. I had a couple of these and want to comeback for more.

A: Pours a grapefruit orange color with a half inch white head and dusting on the top.

S: Aroma of grapefruit and mildly juicy citrus. Passionfruit scent with wet grass and a tiny bit of pine.

T: Flavors of freshly hopped American IPA, plenty of bitterness mixing with some gentle fruit esters and a grapefruit presence that is rather strong. For the most part this is a very refreshing hop profile. It is not too bitter or too fruity. Relatively earthy hops along with a decent malt bill of biscuit and crackers.

M: Medium to heavy body for an American IPA. I can really enjoy the thickness of this as well as the fact that it is not overly dry.

O: I enjoyed this a lot . Definitely happy to have some Motueka hops in the fridge waiting to be brewed in a future batch of mine. Where the aroma could be better, there is nothing lacking in flavor. This is well rounded and the flavors are not tired like some of the more hopped up American IPAs.
