radio_nowhere (1017) - Maryland, USA - JAN 16, 2014
Draft at restaurant in Frederick, MD. Served in a footed pilsner glass, clear ambery-golden color with white head. Aroma of citrus/pine/slight fruity hops with malt backing. Taste seems to lean more pine/earth bitterness and caramel malt sweetness. Light body, moderate carbonation, bitter, sweet with equal finish. Strange enough not a huge hop step up from their pale ale, just an okay IPA.

Reimer96 (1444) - 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.
