Bottle. Amber colour with a white head, medium duration and lacing. Aroma is strong hoppy, fresh, fruity, resins and pine are highly present. Flavor is strong bittery, malty, resins hops are highly present, notes of orange peel, grapefruit and citrus as well. The final has a decent bitterness with good duration.

5000 (6299) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - SEP 17, 2013
Bottle:   Orangish straw, faint haze, small sudsy white head, little lacing.   Musty nose, slightly dank, faint citrus aspects.   As it warms it gets a little sweaty.   Soft sweet citrus aspects up front, pale mustiness, a touch sweaty.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Dank sweaty finish.   While a touch sweeter than the FF variety, the sweat aspect detracts a bit.   Not bright at all, but thankfully not overly bitter either.   Thanks Kevin!

DoublEE (783) - South Euclid, Ohio, USA - SEP 12, 2013
Taste is of bitter grapefruit, juicy blood orange, and bready malt. Doesn’t deviate too far from what our standard tastes like, but I definitely think the addition of citra hops makes the beer tasty more earthy. Bit of fruity sweetness to the finish.

Draft. From notes. Grassy with citrus and pine resin. Good caramel malt backbone. Very enjoyable.

On tap at Frasers. Strong notes of hopes and citrus on the nose. Pretty weak palate though. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

zsb19 (168) - Cincinnati, Kentucky, USA - AUG 2, 2013
Pours clear amber with medium off-white head. Aroma is juicy citrus and floral hops. Taste is dank resinous hops upfront with some bitter citrus on the follow through. Aftertaste is lingering bitter grapefruit that fades into some sweet malty notes. Palate is thin and somewhat sticky. Overall nice balance in this easy drinking IPA.

DocLock (8054) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 1, 2013
Draft at Capone’s. Pours turbid deep gold with white clingy head. Nose is resiny hops, caramel malt, some peppery and grapefruit notes. Tastes piney and tangeriney,with pineapple, grapefruit, smooth, with spare caramel malt and a good balance.

Nate (3778) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 24, 2013
On tap at Mad Mex, Cranberry. Wonderful hoppy apricot aroma. Fruity and fresh with light resin and light sweetness. Medium golden amber clear with thin head. Medium body with medium carbonation. Mild sweet starts with tons of hop flavor. Apricot and resin, big bitterness throughout. Finish is apricot and mild sweet with big bitter. Medium bitter after.

HonusWagner (1629) - Florida, USA - JUL 12, 2013
UPDATED: DEC 5, 2014 Pretty much the definition of an OK IPA, with an above-average citrusy but kind of soapy nose and a flavor that delivers medium sweetness, a bit too much bitterness, and light citrus flavor. Drinkable enough, but nothing special.
