    Strong hoppy flavour beats out the light malt backbone. Very green flavour of grass and pine. Grapefruit and floral hops are also present. Malt is more noticeable in the aroma although it is still earthy. Clear light golden colour. Small white head remains till the end. Good lacing. Easy drinking and medium mouthfeel.

    Quite the suprise to find this at our last tasting. I think thanks goes out to Krausenjockey for bringing this back on his trek down south to the CBC. This was one seriously tasty, easy to drink IPA (much like their WC IPA). This beer had a very clean, citrusy/piney aroma with malts being a touch earthy with enough sweetness to keep things balanced. A clean mouthfeel with minimal fizziness. It seemed natural to keep bringing this beer to your lips, because the drinkability was so damned high. The balance of sweet malts and the fresh hop character of the citrus and pine was quite tasty. When a beer like this is in your hand, drinking it is usually the 1st thing on your mind.

    Tasted at the May Northern California Beer Tasting. This IPA pours a medium orange gold color from a 12oz bottle. Small to medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is fruity and sweet, with a lot citrusy hops. A medium bodied IPA. The malts are fruity and sweet. The hops are citrusy and piney. Lots of hop flavors, not a lot of hop bitterness. Nice beer. Good balance. Nice carbonation. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is clean and crisp. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

    Shared by Bill Batten of Alesmith. Pours with a clear, amber-orange body topped by a thin to medium thick ehad with some lacing. It’s bitter, piney and hoppy with a very slight malt note. The finish is full of bitter hop notes. Medium bodied and warming with a touch of dryness.
