Draft at brewpub. Pours clear amber with a medium sized off white head with good retention. There is plenty of glass carbonation bubbles. The aroma has some floral and pine notes, followed by some light grapefruit notes. The taste is medium bitter but short duration. Some citrus, semi refreshing. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Has a sharp, unbalanced quality to it. The hoppiness isn’t extreme, but it doesn’t have the malt backing it needs.

Very drinkable. Citrus hops in the aroma, well balanced and refreshing. Taste matches the aroma.

Tap at the brewpub. Clear light orange pour with a clingy white head. Citrus aroma and taste with good balance. Simple yet drinkable.

DCLawyer (1312) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - NOV 10, 2012
Draught at brewpub. Hazy gold. Aroma is citrus. Taste is citrus over hops. Not remarkable or complex, but very very drinkable.

yespr (29683) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - JUL 24, 2012
From tap at the brewpub. Pours hazy orange with a small off-white head. Aroma is crisp hops fruity, citrusy and grapefruity. Pine, grapefruit and dry malty base. Rather bitter and dry, yet with a light refreshing grapefruity note. Bitter and fruity into the far finish.

tomciccateri (987) - Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA - JUN 25, 2012
On draught at brewpub. Pours a very dense dark gold color. Thick foamy white head. Nice hop aroma. Medium body. Initial hop bitterness. Big hop flavor dominates any malt character. All hops finish. Labeled an Americal Style IPA, certainly hop forward, but a bit one-dimential. Otherwise nice and drinkable.

Travlr (9999) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - DEC 26, 2011
Draft at the source. Hazy golden color, small white head. Aroma of pine, grass, light cotrus. Taste is similar, with moderate smooth bitterness. Nice.

Block (1210) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - SEP 6, 2011
This beer is as good as their Amber Ale. Nice hops flavor and a higher alcohol content. Pretty average but still good. If you want hops and alcohol get the IPA, if you want a little more flavor get the Amber Ale.
