Jayklew (29) - West Chester, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 13, 2012
12oz bottle. Tulip glass. Very little aroma. Some floral and citrus notes. Nothing stands out. Fairly weak bouquet. Pours orange. Hazy. 2 fingers head. Lasting, dissipates slowly. Not an inviting appearance. Taste is bitter. Some light citrus notes. Nothing stands out. Mouthfeel is typical for an IPA. Overall, not worth buying again.

Draft at the brewpub. It poured a hazy orange color with a thin white head. The aroma was of grassy notes with some faint citrus. The flavor was a little bitter with a somewhat dry finish.

From a bottle poured an amber color with a good amount of head. Nice hoppy flavor with a quick finish.

Really surprised by this IPA. I haven’t always been impressed with the other offerings by this brewer. Pours amber with a frothy head. Tasty.

hollardustin (327) - Indiana, USA - OCT 30, 2011
Pours brownish orange with small white head. Aroma is malty with notes of caramel, citrus, and floral hops. Taste is malty with a hint of floral hops and mild bitterness for an IPA. Very middle of the road IPA that just isn’t hoppy enough for the style.

dwaggs2 (1297) - Jefferson City, Missouri, USA - OCT 28, 2011
Sample for the Augusta beer fest. Poured a hazy yellow orange color with a smaller white head. Aroma was citrus, pines and hops. Wasn’t very hoppy. Metallic, earthy and pines in the flavor. Malts and caramel in the backbone. Well balanced, kind of watery. Ok for the style.

nuplastikk (4299) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 14, 2011
12oz bottle. Hazy, unfiltered orange-tan. Creamy off-white head. Some pineapple, grapefruit in the aroma. Not so impressive for the style. Lacks malt depth. Toasty, soapy, earthy. More of an APA than anything else. Sessionable, but quite fishy, toasty. Woody, orange tones. Rather simple and unimpressive.

The nose on this was very subdued for an IPA, mild grassy, citrus. Pours hazy amber with a minimal white head. Middle of the way taste profile, a bit on the bitter/sour side. Light bodied with a bitter finish that lingers. I’ve had far better IPAs... I wouldn’t get it again.
