On tap at Columbus Brewing. Hazy orange gold color with a thin creamy head. Big aroma of fresh piney hops and muted citrus. Flavors are an explosion of fresh pine and crisp citrus. Wonderfully dry finish with fresh floral hops. Creamy mouthfeel. Delicious, crisp and dry version of an American IPA. Great beer!

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle received in trade from a non-RB member. Unfiltered yellow pour with a small head that fades. The aroma is like standing in a garden with all of that floral, flowery, piney, and grassy hoppiness. Hopheads rejoice! The body is above medium and a little chewy. The taste is much like the aroma with a quick toasted malt note that is usurped in high fashion by pine trees, flowers, grass, and all those other aromatic bittering hops.

On tap at the Melt Bar & Grilled - Independence. Nice floral citrus hop aroma. Fluffy white head with a good amount of lacing left on the glass. Cloudy orange in color. Taste is refreshing, crisp and clean. Nice balance between the citrus hop flavor and the bitter finish with some malt backbone.

Tasted on 7/12/14 from a capped 12oz bottle, big thanks to Pete for snagging this in Cleveland for me. Pours hazy burnt orange with a thick beige head that slowly recedes to average, uneven lace. The nose is a really great blend of floral, earthy dank, and resinous hops with an almost rye bread-like malt aroma. The flavor is the same, one of the most balanced IPA’s I have had, with all of the floral, touch of dank, bit of resin, and even some peppercorn and the same spicy malt from the nose. The body is just under medium with just above average carbonation and a long spicy hoppy finish.

Excellent IPA-will try again.........and-again. Folks, it’s a fine IPA. As always, that begins with a bitter yet fulfilling flavor that sustains to the end. And yes, always a limitless "grape fruity" (ie nice natural hops flavor). Thanks, Mac.

Great beer I don’t get enough of, another ohio hop bomb I wish was in ky. Smells and tastes like a big bag of dank hops. I’ll take another.

Bottle... Poured hazy, pale, golden-amber with a moderate, white-ish head. Nice earthy, resinous-spiced hops on the nose. Thick mouthfeel. Bitterness and hop resinous. Black pepper spice with light touch of mangos and other tropical fruits. Bready malts came in to balance all this with an earthy, pine-like hop presence in the finish.

Draft at columbus ohio after talking to JPMC. This pours copper hue with beige head, the aroma is floral mixed with grapefruit. Massive hop flavor; tasty but the bitingly bitter aftertaste is a bit off. Overall decent.

12oz bottle. Orange pour, white head. Aroma is pine, floral, little oniony. Tastes are caramel malt and resiny citrus. Floral finish. Pretty good - will have to find it fresh and on tap to get a better feel.
