In bottle at Craig’s. Pours a dark golden colour with a fair white head. Aroma of pineapple, passion fruit, lemon, caramel and alcohol. Similar flavours with moderate carbonation and a foamy mouth-feel. Nice and dry to finish.

On tap. This beer is everywhere it must be there main offering now, a good choice. A clear amber color with a medium white head. A fresh hop nose with some earthiness. The flavor is a nice fresh fruity and bitter hop, very clean, tasty, light apricot. Oranges. Good, big flavor.

UPDATED: JUL 27, 2013 Smells of hoppy grapefruit. Taste is a bit too bitter for the smell. Good on a hot summer day.

12oz bottle I picked up at the brewery pours a clear, deep orange with a thin, creamy white head. Nose is nice but mild, malty, crackers, lemons, orange peel, a little light pine. Flavor is similar, balanced, sweet, crackers, biscuit, orange, lemon, a little grapefruit. Medium bodied, dry, zesty finish. No real hint of the heavy alcohol. Very well balanced for an IPA.

12 oz draft at the Church. Pours clean amber with very thin white head that quickly recedes. Aroma of light citrusy hops and malt. Big malt flavor for an IPA, slightly smokey caramel malts, fairly bitter, balanced by citrusy hops with a slightly soapy aftertaste.

Had this on tap at the Jerome Bettis Grille on 3/14/12. It pours a deep copper with a medium white head. It has a heavy hops aroma with a hint of some sweet/fruity malt. A light to medium bitter taste. The body was light to medium with a rich, creamy texture and a light bitter finish. This was a very tasty IPA, but oddly enough I would expect more of a bitter taste. Usually I am overwhelmed by the bitterness of IPAs. I will, nevertheless, be having another the next time I am in the Pittsburgh.
