Fruity. Has a yeasty and wheat aroma actually. Citrus and pine with mild hops. I like it. Had this on draft as part of a flight at Black Acre Brewery in Indy.

Taster on tap at the brewery. Labeled 6.2%; 67 IBU. Mostly clear orange color. Thin off-white head. Leaves good dots and ropes of lace. Good big citrusy, kind of spicy, floral hop aroma. Moderate bitter taste, light to moderate sweet. Smooth, crisp, lighter carbonation. Medium to bigger body. Lightly slick. Kind of an orange-creme note to it. Tasty, interesting IPA.

On tap at the brewery. Pours a clear orange brown with a thick creamy white head. Aroma of light fruits, citrus, bitter hops, grassy hops, caramel malt. Flavor is fairly malty with plenty of fruits and a bitter hops finish. Solid IPA, on the maltier side of things and also fairly bitter 7/4/8/4/14 (3.7/5)

tap at the brewpub last fall - Pours clear orange with a lingering head. It has a mild citrus aroma. The flavor is very good with a nice balance of crisp, fruity hops and malt sweetness. Its lightly carbonated, medium bodied, and leaves a pleasant lingering bitterness.

On tap at the brewpub. Amber color with a frothy off white head. Nose of citrus hops and cleaner. Flavors of orange peel, apricot, some pineapple, coarse bread and some doughy yeast toward the finish. Long grapefruit rind finish. Good beer with the Reuben sandwich.
