Drake (10518) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - DEC 30, 2014
Keg at BJs, Gainesville, VA. Clear amber with a thin fizzy white head. Fair head retention. Aroma of citrus, resin hops and a cheesy note. The taste is citrus, candied citrus, crackery malt. Medium bodied, lingering bitterness.

Reimer96 (1513) - Alberta, CANADA - DEC 29, 2014
Pours a hazy orangish copper with a frothy white head. Aroma of citrus pine, resin, grapefruit, caramel and floral esthers. Taste is caramel, sweet pale malts, pine, grapefruit, light tropical fruits and a nice smooth bitterness. Overall this was a nice ipa but it seemed a bit light for a 75 ibu ipa and being 6.5 percent. Balance was mainly good just seemed light.

Draft - Sweet caramel and hops. Clear gold with almost no head. Bitter and sweet with orange and some really odd notes. Smells ok, but tastes pretty poor.

PhillyBeer2112 (2641) - Oviedo, Florida, USA - DEC 14, 2014
I didnít like this IPA as much as the pale ale. Reddish amber with a thin head. Hops were fruity, a bit tropical. Fairly sweeter caramel and fruit flavors with understated hops. Peppery persimmon is the most I got out of it.
