UPDATED: NOV 20, 2013 Bottle: thanks, Mike! Deep amber body, mild clarity with a somewhat soapy, gray tinted head. Aroma is full of dripping wet hops, pungent oils, sweet grapefruits, mild perfume & floral notes, & a notable, caramel malt sweetness. Taste is nice sticky hops with mild pungency & wet lupulin oils. Sweet grapefruit & mild pine notes march in with some finishing sweet caramel & toasted bread maltiness. Quite a nice IPA... I suspect it might get too sweet if it gets too old - luckily this bottle was super fresh.

nimbleprop (4196) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - OCT 21, 2013
Sampled at GABF 2013. Pours a clear caramel amber with some frothy, white head. Nose has malt, orange, honey. Flavor is malty, honey comb, orange. Clean finish. Sweet. Not much else happening.

NielsenRatings (8273) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - OCT 15, 2013
GABF 2013. Pours a bit hazy golden orange appearance with a light tan head. Soft grapefruity/citrusy, somewhat spicy hoppy aroma. Flavor really reminds me of Two Hearted with a juicy grapefruity forward flavor along with some grassy and herbal notes. Would like to drink again.

Draft to taster at Eccentric Cafe. Looks solid; a mostly transparent golden orange with white head that dissipates into lacing. Smells solid; juicy and piney hops with a pale malt backbone. Tastes less robust with an average mouthfeel. Okay beer, but an underwhelming example of the style.

ElGaucho (2156) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - AUG 22, 2013
Bomber courtesy of Wellestone. Malty sweet aroma. Reddish amber in color. Lasting off white head. Nice hop zing. Somewhat dry. Not bad.

wmubronco1992 (589) - Coldwater, Michigan, USA - AUG 17, 2013
22 oz bottle. Pours copper. Light grapefruit aroma. Big white frothy head. Good lacing. Some minor bitter in the flavor. Pretty light for an IPA. Very easy drinking. If the goal was to create a very light drinkable IPA then this is a success. Its a nice beer, very solid, but no wow factor.

Pretty good beer. Similar to a two heartded, but not quite there. Hops are well balanced, just not enough flavor for a good ipa.

Kinda like a lite Two Hearted. Pretty easy drinking. Would be good on the golf course on a hot day.

Onslow (1095) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - JUN 13, 2013
One tap at University Roadhouse. Clear copper brew with off white head and good head retetnion. Good aroma with a bit of citrus and floral hops. Taste is... eak. Not much malt to speak of, which can be OK but the hops are rather lacking too. A little citrus, very little resin, shot dry and nondescript finish... Rather bland. More like a Portage IPA than a Kalamazoo IPA.
