KajII (799) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - FEB 1, 2012
Botte. The pour was a light clear golden amber with a slight yellow hue and an average sized (1-2 finger) white frothy head that pretty much lasted throughout and had excellent clingy fluffy lacing. The aroma had a moderate dose of grass and pine hops, a light grain malt and a moldy yeast and had decent notes of caramel and citrus (grapefruit and orange). The taste was light, sweet and hoppy with a notes of caramel and orange at first and finished a bit bitterer with a nice touch of citrus at the end. The flavor lasted only a short time with the taste fading rather quickly after the swallow. Mouthfeel was just a bit past light in body with a dry yet watery texture and a semi lively carbonation. Overall a nice light, refreshing and tasty IPA, a brew that one could definitely drink quite a few of.

Bottled. Pours hazy golden. Aroma is citrus, grassy, toast and somewhat floral. Taste is light sweet and pretty bitter. Classic, good, but getting a bit "old fashioned". Medium bodied and quite fizzy.

jeremyh70 (863) - Missouri, USA - MAY 20, 2015
The appearance of this beer is a golden-wheat color, not much of a head but has some nice bubbles on top. Smell of citrus hops, pine and sweet malts. A slight bitterness follows in the middle followed by some pine and citrus hops. Need to try a fresher bottle to really rate it.

12 oz bottle poured into a short wine glass. Dark yellow/orange appearance with a thin white head that dissipates relatively quickly. Aromas of grass, citrus, biscuits. Taste of mango, pine, and cereal grains with a hint of grapefruit bitterness on the finish. Very tasty IPA from one of my favorite breweries.

Hop_Hedonist (307) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - MAY 14, 2015
Beaut balanced IPA - and a bit different - piercing piney-ness - sweet crystal malt complements not distracts - easy to smash - quite a richly tongue-coating brew. Yep, love it.
