COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Burnish gold hue with a persistent, rocky white head. Floral, spicy aroma redolent of lilacs, white pepper and Bartlett pears with undertones of blueberry honey and roses. A pleasant balance of crisp bitterness with a clean malt profile adorned spicy, herbal hop flavors lasting into a dry refreshing finish.

I might be kinder to this of it were a pale ale and not an ipa, but pretty damn weak for the style. Floral and herbal, lavender and honey. The malt is nice, but too prevalent for the style, "spring" ipa or not. Decent beer, weak ass ipa

JaBier (4888) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - JUL 21, 2014
Bottle. Pours clear amber with a thick off-white head. Aroma of malt, citrus, pine and floral hop. Malty flavor with earthy hop accents and florals before a piney and bitter finish.

Rating #1043 - March 27, 2014 - @avbc tap takeover @revolutionYEG - Clear golden amber pour with a weak, white head that bubbles away to a ring. Aroma is strong with hoppy overtones, spicy earthy hops, toasted malt. Taste is more of the same, dry hops and paleish malts dominating the flavour, with a hint of sweetness. Finish is dry, but balanced and satisfying. Delicious.

Shot (141) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - JUL 11, 2014
Pours golden reddish with a rocky white head. Excellent cling. Aromas of cut grass, butterscotch and bitter citrus. Flavors are bitter citrus, floral and nutty. Finishes with bitter grapefruit and a long, long, lingering hop burn. Crisp mouthfeel, yet also a bit syrupy. This is a different IPA, but very nice. I would have this one again.

Elwood (3161) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - JUL 11, 2014
Hazy amber pour with a loose white head. Light caramel, toffee, citrus, and citrus pith notes in the nose. Medium bodied with a good balance between the hops and the malt. Caramel and citrus dominate the flavor profile. Finishes towards the malt side. A decent bitter, but not really what I would consider an IPA.
