4.75/5  rDev +24.7%

Man this is the stuff! Poured at a perfect temperature with a massive billowy cream-colored head that settles slowly, with lots of clingy lace and a hazy honey amber color. Aroma is hops Graham mall. Flavor is like aroma just enough sweetness to balance the bitter and the strong carbonic tang. Perfect mall filling body but not over done. Super drinkable beer

This beer is almost perfect. Although there's a lot hop in it, it doesn't have the sharp edges of many other extra hopped beers.

L: the top is perfect, but the body is a bit cloudy;
S: biscuit, grass and pine;
T: in line with the smell, but completed with a lot lemon, but where sometimes lemon means 'siruppy' this is the real thing;
M: the mouthfeel is maybe the most specific element of this beer and it's perfect: the roundness is in complete harmony with the bitterishnes, the alcohol and the CO2; and the after taste (which is a problem for many extra hopped beers) is perfectly tiny;
O: compliments for this brew!

Had this at the Ealing Beer festival. Tried about 8 American Style Pale Ales from Denmark, Holland etc. This was by far the best!

A: Poured from a bottle to a pint glass. Had an amber color and a cloudy consistency. A lot of sediment floating around. There was a big, creamy, long-lasting head. Good lacing.

S: A very subtle aroma of hops, malt, and citrus.

T: Tasted pretty much like it smelled: A good deal of hops (just enough), light malt, and a bit of citrus. Not a groundbreaking flavor, but very straightforward, focused, and balanced.

M: A highly carbonated beer with a crisp, clean finish. Medium-bodied.

O: A solidly made, easy to drink IPA. Drinkable.

Poured from a 330ml bottle. Pours a big white head atop an enticing cloudy orange colour. The smell is all Cascade hops: piney, citrusy, inviting. The taste follows suit with a big malty presence to help balance it all out. This drinks like a really good West Coast IPA. The excellent carbonation makes a potentially heavy beer very drinkable.

Clear orange, small head, low carb. Yeast aroma over bit of hop. Columbus shines, dry finish with just a lingering bitterness. Bottle conditioned yeast smells a little like Adam. Martita likes. I wish it had more carb or body. Nice to see a positive American influence in the world . . .
