Deep golden color out of the bottle with a fluffy egg shelled colored head. Nose of dusty grains and orange citrus hops. Smooth mouthfeel with lots of grapefruit rind and bitter orange over caramel sweet malts. Long pinching grapefruit zest finish. Nice, bitter IPA.

malrubius (1581) - Willowick, Ohio, USA - SEP 23, 2013
Bottle from Red WIne and Brew. Bright copper with lasting head and lace. Grainy pine and grapefruit aroma. Nice toasted grain and mild fruit sweetness with assertive grassy grapefruit rind bitterness and some lingering toasty grain. Nicely attenuated and lively carbo. Not sure why someone told me this was not very good. I think It’s excellent.

Basic IPA. I could drink this if no better hoppy beer around. Above average carbonation. Some hop aroma. OK, but not greatly drinkable.

22 ounce bottle into tulip glass, no bottle dating. Pours slightly hazy golden orange color with a 2 finger dense and fluffy cream colored head with fantastic retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing lings around the glass. Aromas of grapefruit, tangerine, orange zest, lemon zest, peach, honey, caramel, floral, grass, pine, and floral earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of hop and malt notes; and good strength. Taste of grapefruit, orange zest, lemon zest, tangerine, orange rind, pine, floral, grass, caramel, honey, bread, and floral earthiness. Good amount of earthy pine bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of citrus, citrus zest, citrus rind, pine, floral, grass, honey, caramel, bread, and floral earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice balance and complexity of citrus and pine hop flavors; with a moderate malt balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a lightly creamy, crisp, and sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a small warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a damn nice IPA! All around good balance and complexity of hop and malt notes; and very smooth and crisp to sip on. A very enjoyable offering.

Aroma: Floral and spruce hops Appearance: Sparkling orange with a light, tan head. Taste: Medium bitterness balance by a light sweetness. Palate: Medium body, oily texture, lively carbonation, long hoppy finish. Overall: Meh...it’s not a standout.

keepersj12 (2563) - Sicklerville, New Jersey, USA - JUN 16, 2012
Nice beer to have while watching the locals walk by. Pours a lite amber with a small head. The aroma is pine and citrus, not as pronounced as expected. The flavor has a bit of malt sweetness and the hops. A nice balance of the two. Very easy to put a few away.

Nephilium (1264) - Ohio, USA - MAY 28, 2012
This starts off with a huge blast of hops in the aroma. It pours a clear orange-amber, with a full white head. This beer is a really hop heavy IPA, it starts with a punch of citrus bitterness, then fades to a long bitter finish. Slightly slick mouthfeel, and a moderate body. This is an exceptional IPA.

CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - MAY 3, 2012
22oz bottle thanks to miketd: Pours a clear deep golden bronze with a clingy-lacing froth of white head. Has a lightly sweet toasted caramel malty nose with a good amount of piny resiny hops. Starts with pretty good fullness and a clean light malty sweetness with a healthy dose of grapefruit and piney hops with a touch of fresh-cut grass before a drier, crisp bittersweet finish. Could be a little cleaner, but still fairly drinkable and true to style.

Tap at Beer Engine. Paler yellow pour with a white head. Wonderful floral and citrus aroma. Light palate, but bold citrus and floral taste. Great beer!

JaBier (4532) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - DEC 14, 2011
Sample at Buckeye Beer Engine on 12/10/11. Pours a clear amber with a thick off-white head. Aroma of floral hops, malt and grass. Spicy hop and malt flavor with a grassy and earthy hop finish.
