COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our IPA pours a slightly hazy, pale orange with a balanced malt flavor and finishes with a wonderful flavor and aroma only American hops can provide. This beer is served unfiltered to retain all the bouquet from the hops.

IT just has Great flavors that don’t mask the hops but also the hops don’t take over the great flavors they put in this beer. GIve this beer a try!

Bottle. Orangey pour with a nice white head. Aroma of fresh, sticky, piney american hops. Standard and discreet malt profile. Flavor is bitter, some honey notes in it though, fresh hop bite. Not as dry and bitter as some of the great american IPAs in my experience, but a nice refreshing one nonetheless.

Acetobacter (816) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 11, 2011
Enjoyed from a 12oz bottle in an English pint glass. The beer pours a medium amber color, with a slight haze. The nose shows noticeable, if somewhat less than super-aggressive hop aromas; citrus, wood, very slight pine. The palate shows a smooth bitterness up front, an underlying malt backbone in the mid-palate, and a fairly crisp, fairly dry, fairly bitter finish. Overall, perhaps note quite in the league of the best examples, but certainly well-made and executed.

Bottle shared by Paul at RBSG. Hazy orange with a small white head. Nose to toasty malt, butter, light citrus. Flavor is sweet, buttery, some pine and citrus. Meh.

Excellent IPA. Good citrus/pine aroma with a dry, light body. Very pleasant and a nice surprise from Columbus. Thanks to ineedbeer (reddit) for the bottle.

A great citrus lead, dry-finishing IPA. Thanks to popery for getting to try it fresh. I would be very happy for this to be my local IPA.

nimbleprop (6062) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - MAY 12, 2011
12oz bottle pours a hazy, copper orange with a thin, lacing white head. Nice aroma, hop pellets, C hops, orange, lemon zest, grapefruit, pine, flowers, a little honey, a little apple, a little resinous. Flavor is well balanced, citrus without being overly bitter, orange, pine, honey, flower pollen, a little wet earth, a little grapefruit. Full bodied, sweet, bitter finish. Extremely well balanced with a great nose.

Beerman6686 (5377) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 10, 2011
This poured a light orange color with an off white head. Aroma was nice medium citrusy hops, some straw and grass too. Flavor was a decent amount of light juicy citrus hops and light biscuty malt to give it balance. Decent version of the style.

UPDATED: AUG 2, 2012 Appears a hazy orange-to-golden color with a nice white head. The aroma is full of floral and earthy notes. The taste is very balanced, not overly bitter. There are also good floral notes here. The malts are very bready, almost like a biscut. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with the right amount of carbonation. Definitely a very drinkable IPA. Overall, a great brew. Glad I can find it pretty easily around here.

hazy gold-yellow, thin white head. Nose is bit dusty, litter, light citrus. Flavor is more piney, fresher, bit of dust still. Very oily, lightly bitter finish.
