This is one of the most floral ipa's I've ever had. Golden colored, minimal lacing. Aroma and flavor is all floral, and wonderful at that. Super drinkable.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: OCT 11, 2013 Growler from Heinenís. Gold color with small head and great thick lacing. Aroma has huge citrusy, piney nose that is so rich and fruity. Flavor has sweet, fruity hops, just a little bitterness and a smooth maltyness to finish it off. Medium mouthfeel with moderate carbonation, this is so smooth and easy to drink. So good.
8-18-13: (7)(3)(8)(4)(1 this several times at festivals but had it on tap for a true tasting and it was just as good. Bright gold color with small white head and little lacing. Flavor and aroma are full of sweet citrusy hops with a light bitter grapefruit. Smooth for the high alcohol, medium bodied, crisp, and easy to drink. Really good all around.

On tap at the brewpub. Pours a clear golden yellow-orange with a thick white head. Aroma of grassy hops, pot, caramel malt. Flavor initially is sweet and sticky malt with grassy and garlicky hops. Good flavor and hop base but a bit sweet/sticky. I guess not bad for a IIPA.

Great beer the Simcoe hops really shine through with aroma. For 90+ IBUs the beer extremely aromatic. Nice golden color and a smooth finish. Never a hint of the 8.5% alcohol content, this is a strong yet easy drinking beer. Great choice if you are in Ohio.

Growler received in trade from Bencooper27, thanks for the opportunity!
Pours a cloudy light golden color with a decent head and lice retention and lace. Aromas of citrus, pine, resin, garlic and a heavy dose of caramel and bready sweetness. The flavor follows the aroma but ends up a bit too much on the sweet malty side for my liking. Medium body with a light to moderate level of carbonation and a sweet resiny mouthfeel. Nice enough IPA but seemed a bit sweet for a dipa imho.

Hazy gold. Lighter than I expected. Despite having this after the lower abv Fat Head Head Hunter, this is the milder beer. Similar aroma, but sweeter and less harsh bitterness.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pour from a growler at Dark Lord Day that some guy kept opening, setting out on a table, monitoring the level, and putting it back in his duffel bag. Odd, compulsive beer geek behavior, and I couldnít figure out a motivation for it. Pours a clear gold color with a small white head. Aroma has big, fresh, herbal and citrusy hops, straw, pale malts, and honey. The flavor is pretty much the same. Medium-bodied, with a sweet mouthfeel that starts juicy and finishes dry. Moderate carbonation. Nice DIPA. Glad I finally got around to it because Iíve heard about it a lot lately.

Dug it...hoppy monster thatís not too high in abv to enjoy. Big piney notes, relatively thin palate, dry finish without getting sticky. I like this sort of DIPA.
