Bottle courtesy of Jason and Dawn. Thanks! Not much going on in the aroma department. Just a very slight citrus component. Earthy hop and biscuit malt flavors. Really faint citrus flavor. Overall a decent IPA.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
(1pt 6oz bottle) Clear orange amber with a thick, smooth off-white head. Aroma of grass, floral notes, and fruit (tropical, mango, apricot, slight orange). Medium body, oily mouthfeel. Fairly strong sweetness, caramel and toffee, but strong hop bitterness dries it out; pine, grass; resiny; some vegetable and funky notes, too. A good IPA and a little bit different from most.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 oz. bottle on 7/5/12. Pours a light copper color with an off-white head that settles to a thin film. Pine notes in the aroma along with spicy hops and sweet malt in the background. Medium/thin body, slight hop taste on the tongue. Leans a liittle to the malt side. Slghty dry finish. Worth trying.

Cloudy dark copper. Citrus. Unique spicy hops. Very hoppy in every stage from aroma to aftertaste, but balanced.

Pours a reddish orange color with an off white thin head. Smells of pine and a bit of brown sugar. Nice roasted sugary tastes with heavy pine needles flavors. Good rounded beer. I am enjoying

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma is piny with tropical fruits - pineapple, mango, tangerine. Body is full, smooth, oily mouth feel. Well layered IPA with initial fruity flavors that fades into a grassy and lemony bitterness. Finish is long and bitter. Nice.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours hazy copper with a dirty white head. I canít really pinpoint any good descriptors in the nose, but its very hop forward. I do know that Iím not the biggest fan of the hop, but that doesnít mean its bad. Thereís enough malt to counteract what I donít enjoy. This is a fine beer but there are plenty Iíd rather drink.
