4.3/5 rDev +10.8%
Appearance - Pours a golden amber with copper highlights and two fingers of frothy white head.
Smell - Citrus hops, pine resin, tropical fruit (mango, guava), caramel malts, lemon notes.
Taste - Good solid punch of citrus hops and pine resin so that the bitterness sticks to the back of the palate. Accented by tropical fruit and caramel flavours.
Mouthfeel - Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Excellent bitterness in the finish and sticking to the roof of my mouth. Dry finish as well.
Overall - This has been on my want list for quite some time and there are no disappointments. Excellent citrus hop and pine resin flavours that stick to your palate - hop lovers rejoice!

3.99/5 rDev +2.8%
650 mL bottle at 45 degrees into standard pint glass
Aroma of pine
Head average (4 cm), off white, creamy, slowly diminishing
Lacing fair – rings with large bubbles
Body light yellow, hazy
Flavor begins very bitter with an astringent citrusy aftertaste; no alcohol, no malt, no diacetyl
Palate medium, watery, lively carbonation
A decent IPA with a welcome bitterness, a well-made example of a basic American IPA.

Thanks to hopsolutely for including this in the CANBIF 2014 box
A: Copper orange clear pour with a bubbling 2 fingers worth of rocky head. The head leaves all but a thin singular layer side to side.
S: Sweet malts followed with orange flower water and capped with dry hoppy fresh pine.
T: Dry citrus rind with sappy pine resins and notable alcohol presences at the end. Hops hang heavy and acrid with pithiness on the palette.
M: Medium bodied with a small twang of carbonation, dry puckering hops are the end suck on and hold the tongue.
O: A decent IPA that offers a nice pine & citrus rind profile, not especially complex but does a good job of the style.

Looks pretty interesting. An odd rusty gold colour - something I've not seen a lot of before. Pours a big, firm, long lasting head. Coats the glass nicely as the head settles and gives up lots of lace as it goes.
Piney nose and grapefruit. Very bitter to taste, hop hammer, lots of grapefruit rind. Dry and bitter to finish. Very one dimensional I'm afraid. Not too interesting.

From a 650 ml bottle to a pint glass
A: copper gold in color with a very slight haze. There is a frothy two to three finger head that retains nicely eventually breaking and leaving a full foam cap.
S: hops - pine and grapefruit come to the fore, there is a background smell of some malt too.
T: the hops bitterness grabs you up front, but then dulls and there is a soapyness on the finish. There is a sweetness of malts there trying to get through but it seems to be washed out by the hop bitterness.
M: lower carbonation with a medium mouth feel.
O: this was a bit dull in my opinion. The bottle was just over a month old, not the prime for freshness, but still it should be drinkable. I just found the hops bitter and they did not provide any of the flavor the nose promised. I won't give up on this though,I am hopeful it was just an off batch and I will get a better result next time.
