Unplug with this golden IPA infused with grapefruit, citrus, and notes of pine by a vagabond blend of seven hops that continues to roam your palate long after the beer’s crisp finish. Pop the top, it’s time to..... disconnect!

BOD 11/26/14. Pours a cloudy amber. Normal head volume, outstanding lacing and retention. Nice nose of citrus hops (grapefruit, pineapple, orange) and an underlying bit of spicy pine over a rich caramel and biscuit sweetness. Medium bodied with a rich smoothness, a bit of oil and a touch of creamy texture. Normal carbonation with a bit of effervescence in the finish. The outstanding flavor profile is intense, rather complex and superbly balanced. It begins with a blend of hop flavors over caramel that begin to separate towards the middle after the caramel fades. Grapefruit leads, followed by pineapple and orange. The middle produces a nice piney bitterness over a distinct grapefruit rind character. The finish is a slow fade of the bitterness flavors against a faint receding sweetness of a biscuit nature. Considering this is 5 months old as I rate it, fresh should be approaching world class.

Bottle. Hazy gold with a perfect long lasting 1 finger head. Citrusy fruit aroma of mainly grapefruit. Cracker malts, pine, huge bitterness, and cough syrup style resins are added on the taste. Not very good, too bitter and unbalanced. For 6.5% this drinks like its 12. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Clear dark golden body, medium sized off-white head, spotty lacing. Notes of grapefruit and orange zest. Mild crackery malt. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, mellow malt sweetness leaves a smooth, ever-so-slightly syrup feel. Moderate bitterness.
