On tap at Bells. Pours light orange, decent aroma of citrus and light pine. Taste is citrusy, maybe grapefruit and light mango. Very clean and drinkable.

Draft to taster at Eccentric Cafe. Looks good; a transparent golden orange with foamy eggshell head. Smells solid; grapefruit with a medium-bodied bittersweet backbone. Tastes like it smells with a nice, smooth mouthfeel. Enjoyable.

bwa5879 (706) - Portage, Michigan, USA - AUG 20, 2014
Medium orange pour of medium clarity, quarter inch white thick head. Light grassy aroma, subtle citrus, cottony lime rind and lemon. Very soft carbonation, pillowy foamy mouthfeel, very clean finish, oats add uniqueness to the palate. Bitter nutty malts, crisp lemongrass, a bit sour/rubbery. Bitter but light and crisp pale ale.

Dfonorow (1600) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 20, 2014
On tap at Bells. Pour is clear copper with a small off-white head. Aroma and flavor of citrus peel, pineapple, resin, grass, and cracked wheat malt. Finish has a touch of oatmeal / wheat.

tectactoe (2299) - Michigan, USA - AUG 20, 2014
Tap @ Bells: Rich amber, rustic copper body with a foamy white film & collar capping things off. Very nice, hoppy aroma. Big-time grapefruit, citrus peel, juicy pineapple, dense wet pine, hemp oil, a little bit of grass & lupulin resin towards the finish. A little bit of toasty cracker malts show up on the palate, but make no mistake, this thing is still all about the hops. More bitter grapefruit, pineapple, & orange rind with those big, dense notes of wet grass, pine, resin, & hop oil that I just love. Can seem just a touch thin at times, but this is a damn fine IPA.... Would love to see this one more often.

Mittenator (1389) - Michigan, USA - AUG 16, 2014
Draft at bells. Clear copper with a beige head. Tons of citrus. Huge tropical hops upfront with an odd, oatmeal finish.
