Orange with a strong haze. The flavor starts out with some Strong Floral Hops, Resin and Yeasts. As the beer warms up, it takes on more of a caramel/malty characteristic that gives it a sweeter flavor. Flavor is a bit heavy with some mild carbonation and feels like watery molasses. It’s a decent IPA with a sweet flavor if you allow it to warm up, which alone is worth checking out.

ChainGangGuy (4375) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - JUN 25, 2011
12 ounce bottle - $1.79 at Hop City in Atlanta, Georgia.

Appearance: Pours out a hazed, orange-toned body with a fairly sizable, sudsy, off-white head. Smattering of lace on the descent.

Smell: Lightly grainy-scented malt, faintly sweetish in the nose, certainly yielding to the more forward hop notes of citrus, florals, and spice.

Taste: A biscuity blend of pale and pils malts underscored by some graininess and accompanied by small, fleeting tastes of sweetish honey and light-colored caramel. Floral, orange blossom hop character with a pinch of bitterish dried herbs. Has an accruing citric quality about it. Moderate bitterness. Drying, orange zested finish with some enduring bitterness.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied, if not a hair or so under. Medium carbonation.

Overall: It’s alright, you know, fairly average all-around; it’s not the boldest IPA out there, by any means, but nor is it the blandest, either.

csaso (1366) - Missouri, USA - JUN 27, 2012
Bottle - good size thick head, dark straw color, piney hop aroma and flavor, not the best or strongest IPA, but certainly not bad

esjaygee (3903) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 27, 2011
Murky amber with stuff suspended within and a creamy tan lacemaker. Aroma of citrus, cereal grains, bready malt and caramel. Taste of moderately bitter with some floral hops and mild citrus. Caramel and bready malt balance it out somewhat but it’s more to the hoppy side.

DrSilverworm (6375) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 30, 2014
12oz bottle, purchased from Lukas Liquor in Missouri during RBSG. Totally hazy orange golden color. Pours with a bigger off-white head, kind of pillowy. Leaves decent lace. Medium-plus body. Smooth, kind of soft, light to moderate strength carbonation. More dry finish. Good pine, citrus hop, lightly spicy. Mild malt character, just a light crackery aspect. A hint of metallic. Moderate to bigger bitter taste. light sweet. Solid IPA.. Better than expected.

nuplastikk (4399) - 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.
