Darkmagus82 (1414) - - SEP 28, 2014
Transfer from BA review on 10-11-13- Served on tap in a pint glass Appearance Ė The beer is served an orange amber color with a one finger of pure white foamy head. The head fades slowly over time leaving a great level of foamy lace on the sides of the glass. Smell Ė The aroma is heaviest of a citrus smell. The citrus is a mix of grapefruit hop and some tangerine and orange. Along with these smells are some lighter notes of tropical fruits with some mango and pineapple as well as a bit of pine hop. Overall the aroma is sweet and nicely hopped. Taste Ė The taste begins with a grapefruit hop flavor and some sweeter flavors of a tangerine nature. Along with these, are some bready flavors, with the three flavors (bready, tangerine, and grapefruit) creating a base for the beer. Soon after the initial taste other flavors of a light pine and a bit of caramel sweetness comes to the tongue. The tangerine in the base then starts growing more intense with it really sweetening the beer at the end. With more grapefruit hop coming to the tongue at the end of the taste as well, a rather sweet and citrusy hopped taste is left to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel Ė The body of the beer is on the average side in terms of its thickness and creaminess with a carbonation level that is on the average side. Both are rather nice for the blend of sweet and hoppy and make a rather enjoyable drinking brew overall. Overall Ė A very tasty, sweeter, and citrusy IPA. Not a hop super-powerhouse, but very easy drinking, and more balanced then many. Quite nice.

upstatehophead (1) - solvay, New York, USA - SEP 10, 2014 does not count
12oz bottle Aroma nice and fruity but not as strong as most "hoppy" advertised beers, smell compares to Ithaca Flower Power. Appearance: has the look of a very high end IPA adequate head, lots of lace left on the glass.. Respectable appearance Taste: honey on the tip, sweet, malty.. Finishes with a dogfish 60 min amount of hops. Palate:more carbonated than most IPA beers, which doesnít allow the complex flavors coat the tongue .. Overall: itís a beer thatís presentation not quality markets this beer. It isnít bad, but isnít anything spectacular. Buy a sixer of Daveís pale ale, and get a little better beer imho.. Bottleing has a wow factor that could intrigue even the biggest beer snob you know.. Enjoy the beer it isnít bad at all.

rondphoto (2044) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - SEP 3, 2014
bottle @ Habersham Beverage / Savannah GA --- Hazy medium amber with a good head cover streaks of lace. Taste is malt that is engulfed by pine hops on the swallow, and that is all that remains in a long finish. Balance is skewed toward bitter, but itís a drinkable IPA.

Lemke10 (797) - Waukesha, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 30, 2014
This pours a clear, golden yellow color with a slight foamy head. The aroma is mild with a balanced hop scent. The flavor is raw and full of hoppy flavor. The texture is smooth and delicious. This pack a much stronger hop flavor than I would have expected. Well worth a try!

suprchunk (2261) - Crestview, Florida, USA - AUG 10, 2014
Twisted the cap off and poured into a favorite glass. Golden pour. Big white head. Plenty of lacing. Carbonic aroma mixed with malt. Not much hops in the nose. Grainy malt taste. Bread. Bitter finish. I donít get much hops. At least as not as much as I would expect from the name.
