COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our IPA pours a slightly hazy, pale orange with a balanced malt flavor and finishes with a wonderful flavor and aroma only American hops can provide. This beer is served unfiltered to retain all the bouquet from the hops.

Always grab some sixers of this when in OH visiting the in-laws. Noticed I never gave this a proper review. 12oz bottle into a goblet. The pour yields a dark honey-amber with a thick frothy bone-white head. Great retention, with spotty lace left behind. Pine, citrus, floral overtones. Nothing new here, but the aroma is so potent and fresh. Love it. Medium carbonation gives this beer enough heft to hold up the flavors, but without any lasting astringency. The reason I love this beer so much is the perfect balance between the bitter hops and sweet malty backbone. I would say this even leans slightly to the sweet side, which isnít a detriment to it at all. Grapefruit, musk melon, orange give this a nice fruity quality. The hops add just a touch of oily feel as well, and they donít linger too long on the aftertaste. Just enough "burn" to satisfy the hop-head in me, but fleeting enough to keep me gulping this one. This is one of the most drinkable and approachable IPAs I have had, and it will be one I continually buy when in the area. Canít wait until Christmas when I can get some more!

On tap at the Melt Bar & Grilled - Independence. Nice floral citrus hop aroma. Fluffy white head with a good amount of lacing left on the glass. Cloudy orange in color. Taste is refreshing, crisp and clean. Nice balance between the citrus hop flavor and the bitter finish with some malt backbone.

Tasted on 7/12/14 from a capped 12oz bottle, big thanks to Pete for snagging this in Cleveland for me. Pours hazy burnt orange with a thick beige head that slowly recedes to average, uneven lace. The nose is a really great blend of floral, earthy dank, and resinous hops with an almost rye bread-like malt aroma. The flavor is the same, one of the most balanced IPAís I have had, with all of the floral, touch of dank, bit of resin, and even some peppercorn and the same spicy malt from the nose. The body is just under medium with just above average carbonation and a long spicy hoppy finish.

Excellent IPA-will try again.........and-again. Folks, itís a fine IPA. As always, that begins with a bitter yet fulfilling flavor that sustains to the end. And yes, always a limitless "grape fruity" (ie nice natural hops flavor). Thanks, Mac.

Bottle... Poured hazy, pale, golden-amber with a moderate, white-ish head. Nice earthy, resinous-spiced hops on the nose. Thick mouthfeel. Bitterness and hop resinous. Black pepper spice with light touch of mangos and other tropical fruits. Bready malts came in to balance all this with an earthy, pine-like hop presence in the finish.

Draft at columbus ohio after talking to JPMC. This pours copper hue with beige head, the aroma is floral mixed with grapefruit. Massive hop flavor; tasty but the bitingly bitter aftertaste is a bit off. Overall decent.

12oz bottle. Orange pour, white head. Aroma is pine, floral, little oniony. Tastes are caramel malt and resiny citrus. Floral finish. Pretty good - will have to find it fresh and on tap to get a better feel.

Beer courtesy of awlcordell from the local swap -- Poured into a tulip and itís a hazy golden with a malty (for an IPA) aroma. Really tastes like an English IPA, biscuit malts and earthy hops.

Had this on draft. A good IPA thatís not overly hoppy. Easy drinking but doesnít have the citrus flavor I like in an IPA
