This one grew on me to a degree. At first I thought the palate was missing depth, but after a few more sips I realized it filled in the depth reasonably well. This isnít a great beer, but it is good. Aroma is dank. Color is a golden copper. It tastes of juicy tropical and citrus fruit, with a nice orange and citrus rind hops bitterness and a decent malt sweetness in the backbone. Not bad, really.

12oz bottle from The Beer Shoppe (Ardmore PA). Shared with Bob F. after work. Pours a clear dark amber color with a small foamy white head. Aroma of sweet caramel, old citrus citrus fruit, and apricots. Taste of piney bitterness, caramel malt, grain, grass, and a yeasty aftertaste.

BVery (6204) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - SEP 12, 2014
Tap at Happy Gnome. Murky gold-orange pour with a spotty head. Getting some citrus and resin in here, but also some soap. Kind of a strange bitterness midway back on the tongue. Not my favorite.

AWISLguy (1289) - Wisconsin, USA - SEP 5, 2014
Bottle from ck1, thanks bro! Pours a coppery amber with a bit of a white head. Some streaky lacing. Aroma has fresh fruits, citrus and pine, with some earthiness and some caramel. Taste is of tangy pine, some grapefruit, some mango and a solid caramel malt backbone. Tangy and somewhat fruity with a medium body, it finishes slightly more bitter than sweet, with a blend of the two. Shrug? Maybe the worst of the Falconer/Cascade/Apollo group - ok drinker and a decent hop-forward IPA, but a bit blah.13.5

Lemke10 (784) - Waukesha, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 1, 2014
This pours a hazy, copper-orange color with a slight head. The aroma is weak with hints of malts and hops. The taste is very interesting with flavor. The texture is smooth and easy drinking, but the flavors erupt with strength and bitterness.

Bottle->SA. Murky dark orange-gold with small white head. A: citrus hops, dank pine, soap. T: mucky resin and pine, grass. Bitter, a bit xerostomic. Something dank and off here.

6oz draft. Copper color. Caramel overtakes this beer in terms of scent and flavor. Semi bitter after taste. Pass on this.

Dfonorow (1440) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 28, 2014
Pour is orange/yellow with a medium white head. Aroma of grapefruit juice, light pine resin, citrus peel, and mild bitterness. Flavor is pine oil, light citrus, faint hops, and slight caramel sweetness. Very mild for the ABV, somewhat lacking.

Sammy (8627) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 28, 2014
On tap at coleís. Dark yellow. Below average mouthfeel and not so drinkable.

bookman10 (641) - Osseo, Minnesota, USA - AUG 26, 2014
Pours a cloudy copper-yellow, with thick hard. Aroma is marked by a fairly strong citrus presence, along with piney hops. Flavor is bitter, astringent, citrusy, with a fair amount of underlying sweetness. This might be my favorite of their single-hop series. Very good.

Pailhead (4808) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - AUG 26, 2014
Bottle: The aroma consists of light-moderate citrus, fruit, faint caramel, and toasty notes. It pours a dark transparent amber with a three finger orange tinted off-white head that eventually fades to a thick film. There is a good amount of soapy lacing left on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with moderate citrus, light fruit, and faint caramel. The finish has light-moderate pine, light toasty notes, and a hint of lemon peel. Itís light-medium bodied with moderate carbonation.
