Perfect head level, inviting colour...brewed in US...nice bottle, cool design with a picture of the snake dog...

Aroma is as good as any beer, apricottey and hoppy.

Really good IPA, would buy again. Not as strong and full on flavour as the best ones though...

Copper colour, lots of carbonation and a modest head of foam that quickly sinks in, though the surface remains covered. Fresh smell of pine and grapefruit, but a bit subdued. Taste is not really IPA, more like a fruity (peach) belgian blond. There is also not a lot of hop action in the finish. The mouth feel is medium and a little less carbonation would have been nice. All in all not an unpleasant drink, but I would have rated it higher if they hadn't labelled it as an IPA. Hop heads will probably be disappointed in this one.

Copper filtered with minimal carbonation, topped with two fingers of yellow beige head.

Orange, stinky foot, pine.

Orange, pine, grapefruit, corn syrup. Light bitterness on the end. The hops are pretty muted.

Medium light body, slightly high amount of foamy carbonation.

Got on wishbeer. Tastes like an English IPA, and if it were I'd rate it higher. Hops are lacking in this one, so I'm a little disappointed. Drank in Chiang Mai Aug 13th, 2016.
