COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed in the style of an American Pale Ale, a "dry hopping" technique is used where generous amounts of hops are added to the beer during its maturation stage which gives the beer an unmistakable floral and citrusy aroma. This beer is also known for its firm hop bitterness which is balanced nicely by the sweetness of the crystal malts used in this recipe.

Sampler pours a soft amber with a white head. Aroma is of floral hops and a little sweetness. Taste is also of the hops with a sweet note. Very nice beer.

bomber shared with a non hoppy friend. poured a medium orange with white head. nice lacing on the glass, the aroma was citrus and floral straight up with a medium malt base. the flavor pretty much the same you get a medium malt base with plenty of citrus...the bitterness doesn’t last very long nor is it cloying. over all pretty good apa.

Ratman197 (9952) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - AUG 31, 2014
Poured a clear orange amber with a lasting amber head. aromas of bread, candied orange and grapefruit. Palate was light bodied and crisp with a dry finish. Flavors of bread, orange and pink grapefruit with a crisp dry lightly bitter lingering orange finish.

On tap at brewery. A little on the lighter side of amber. Not much head retention. This hits the nose with pungent hops. While there is some malt support here, the overall experience is very hops forward. Even though it had less hops than the darker SHAFT IPA, many people at the table found this to be the hoppiest beer.

On tap at Cool Springs. Nice pine and citrus rind with just a but of malt in the background. Quite dry and fairly bitter. Something to the finish I don’t quite like

Clear medium amber, very still, no bubbles. Small head that quickly reduces to the rim, thin streaks of lace. Taste is caramel malt that is quickly pushed aside by cascade hops. Hop presence is nearly overpowering, even though the hop ibu is relatively low. The malt does make a partial recovery in the finish, which helps a lot with balance. This is similar to many brewpub IPAs, with no characteristic to make it memorable. Drinkable, strong enough flavor, though probably too much hoppiness for the malt lover, not enough for the hophead.

musinj6 (402) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JUN 22, 2012
Pours a clear amber with small head and minimal lacing. Starts of with strong bitter taste with grapefruit aromas. Toasted malt backbone, but primarily a hop forward IPA. Moderate carbonation with medium body and clean mouthfeel. Long, bitter finish. I like this.

Dogbrick (8239) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAY 29, 2012
Sample at the brewpub. This beer pours a clear dark amber-orange color with a medium creamy white head that dissipates slowly to a compact film. Partial sheets of lacing on the glass. Aroma of hops, fruit and malt. Medium body with a moderately bitter hops character and notes of citrus and caramel malt. The finish is fruity with a short hoppy aftertaste. Decent all around.

DrinkEmUpJones (1063) - Georgia, USA - APR 7, 2012
Pours clear orange with thin lacing. Earthy, dry hops on the nose. Full bodied palate is very earthy and tastes of pine and resin. Good hop presence and nicely balanced palate. Tastes like an IPA. The menu calls it an ipa...not sure if they changed the recipe?

Draft. Amber/orange pour with a thin white head. Scent is juicy hops and caramel. Taste is caramel and citrus.
