On draft at Cigar City Tap Room. Dry but has a nice malt backing to it. Hoppy and slightly floral. Subtle hints of grapefruit. Very easy drinking.

chinchill (1369) - South Carolina, USA - DEC 21, 2012
Pint on tap at Kickbacks in JAX. A hazy orange-amber color with a modest size but exceptionally durable tan head. Good hoppy aroma with floral notes and a faint hint of citrus, but only has the strength of a typical APA. Earthy-fruity hop flavor [7.5] has some balance provided by the malts. Long lasting, medium-bitter aftertaste. O: a solid, and somewhat distinctive IPA.

phaleslu (5867) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 17, 2012
Draft at Kickbacks, served in a pint glass. Pours a hazy, dull orange-gold with a small cream-colored head. Aroma of grassy and leafy hops, overripe tropical fruits that have lost some sweetness, and muddled cereal malts. Flavor of citrus, floral notes, cooked pineapple, mixed malts, wood, and grass. Medium-bodied, with a fruity, resinous mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. Dry finish. Interesting hop varietal.

On tap at Proof. malty, citrus, pine, caramel, resiny, little weak. toast. vegetal, herbal, woody. Not my favorite (certainly not by CC standards). 6.6

markwise (4306) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - DEC 16, 2012
On draft at Cigar City. Pours a hazy caramel-orange with a white head. Nose is caramel, big citrus hops, and a bit of grass. Flavor follows- a nice new hop varietal with big citrus with some earthy notes and some grassy notes. Medium in body and lingering earthy fruit in the finish.

jbruner (1972) - Athens, Georgia, USA - DEC 16, 2012
Pours a slightly hazy golden orange on tap with frothy white head that dissipates to leave light lacing. Aroma of earthy and grapefruity citrus hops. Taste follows, lots of the hops with a slight pale malt back. Well balanced and easy to drink.
