Dark orange pour. Leans resin-forward. Unusually viscous. Sufficiently bitter. Good, but nothing special. B- ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Pours a hazy dark copper color with a smallish white head on it. Nose is a little bit hoppy with some floral elements to it, but the smell is rather light and easy to miss. Taste is bitter with a rather bitter finish, but tastes like it’s not too fresh any longer. Doesn’t taste too complex at this stage.

Hazy almond color. Thin White lacing. Slight piney aroma and flavor. Not too bitter on the finish but resin sticks around.

Why doesn’t ratebeer.com have a label rating... very cool bit of graphic design here. This is a typical American IPA. Bitter enough with a slight watery taste. ABV is 7.2% but easy to drink.

SpringsLicker (3116) - Tennessee, USA - APR 22, 2013
Hazy dark orange pour with a tall sticky off-white head. Earthy aroma of citrus rind and pine. Starts sweet with bitterness in the middle and a dry finish. Average as far as IPAs go, Better than many ’organic’ beers that I’ve tried.

kaser (2504) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 18, 2013
Poured from bomber I got from letspour. Darker orange thick with quick disappearing head. Sour citrus and orange aroma. Bready, mild hops, slightly floral and bitter. Overall not bad but nothing crazy good either

Pours an hazy orange .....Tastes of malt burnt orange and light pine. Expected more of a westo coast IPA......tastes almost like a ESB.

Pawola22 (3262) - Woodridge, Illinois, USA - DEC 2, 2012
On tap at the brewpub in Portland, OR. Pours a lightly hazed, golden colored body with a finger-width, creamy and frothy, off-white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a solid lacing. Aroma is floral citruses with a light pine and a lightly sweetened malt backing. Flavor is similar. Sweeter floral citruses with some pines and a somewhat sweet caramel malt backing. Finishes with a light pine, earth, and citrus as well as a light caramel sweetness. Lengthy aftertaste following a medium body and a moderate carbonation. Overall, a decent IPA. Fairly well hopped and enjoyable. Not bad.
