LilBeerDoctor (3370) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 27, 2012
Bottle. Pours a cloudy orange with a thick white head. Aroma of light tropical fruits, melon rind, yeast, lemon. Very fruity, almost reminiscent of a Belgian IPA. Flavor of sweet fruits, grassy hops, and bitter hop resin. Flavor is a little weaker than the aroma but pretty similar. Tasty IPA, even if it might be a little old. 8/4/7/4/14 (3.7/5)

BeerandBlues2 (9071) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - APR 17, 2014
Bottle at home. Pours clear amber with a large, frothy off-white head, long retention with good lacing. Aroma is biscuit malt, pear esters, grassy, herbal, and floral hops. Flavor is moderate hops and bitterness with light malt and fruity esters with a dry finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation.

Ferris (2006) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 8, 2014
Bottle - Lots of fresh pine and grapefruit, with a sweet caramel backbone. Cloudy copper with a thin beige head. Tastes just as it smells whit have very light bitterness. Well balanced and leaning towards sweetness, a very easy drinking IPA.

hockeybeerguy (909) - Juneau, Alaska, USA - MAR 27, 2014
Reviewed from notes. The appearance was a hazy golden body with a one finger white foamy head gently clings and forms valleys, some carbonation is seen rising, some really nice foamy clingy lacing appears. The smell had some hops, malts, but combined and not really showing too much. The taste was balanced through hops and malts, but average. The palate was about a light to medium, sessionable, smooth and slightly crisp, citrusy aftertaste and finish. Overall, I’d have it again fresh if given the opportunity.

ThirstyBird (1182) - Düsseldorf, GERMANY - MAR 18, 2014
Poursa golden color with a slight haze and big fluffy cream colored head. The nose is fruity, spicy hops. I think this is an old bottle... Stale malt, cardboard, spicy, fruit. The body is light with decent carbonation.

drowland (5958) - Valdosta, Georgia, USA - MAR 5, 2014
3/3/14. 22oz bomber from Exit 18. Amber orange pour, super over-carbonated, huge, huge fizzy tan head that fluffs up but fades awa. Floral, earthy hop aroma, black tea. Malty caramel flavor, earthy, floral. Either old, gross, or both. Meh.

northropfrye (1944) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - JAN 7, 2014
Medium dark body with foamy white head. Biscuit and hop aroma, though subtle. Taste is more on the malty side for an IPA. Okay.

camborne (655) - Hopkins, Minnesota, USA - DEC 14, 2013
Solid ipa, I do enjoy their darker offerings a bit more though. The citrus hops are balanced well with some malt goodness.

tectactoe (1167) - Michigan, USA - DEC 9, 2013
Tap: overcast golden color with tangerine-like edges; translucent & full of yeasty haze. A thin, swampy film covers the beer in place of an actual head. Aroma has strong notes of both pine & orange. Various citric-like peel notes with some pine needles & pungent hop oils. Nothing spectacular, but balanced fairly well. Taste is strong orange; juicy & sweet. Oily, resinous hops with some pine. Faint pale malt, bittersweet finish. A good & balanced beer, but not stand-out enough to warrant many repurchases.

ShaneJ (414) - AUSTRALIA - NOV 30, 2013
Bottle from Plonk. Clear mid-amber/orange, citrusy, dusty/musty, sweet caramel malt, resinous aftertaste, medium bitterness, medium body. Quite good, but more APA than IPA I thought.

Fratto (2524) - Arlington, Texas, USA - NOV 8, 2013
Bottle from the Temple Spec’s. Orange pour with a big, white head. Aroma is sappy with light fruit. Taste is bitter, light grain, fruit, and some earthiness.
