Poured from bottle. Pours a dark gold color with two fingers of head. There is quite a bit of lacing. Aroma is a mix of citrus and pine, with pine being just a bit more dominant. Tastes are expected hop bitterness, pine and resin, a bit of citrus. Mid-taste there is a blip of malt sweetness, then finishes with a touch of bitterness. Finish is fairly short, but leaves you wanting another sip. This is very good.

Poured 12 oz bottle an amber color with a small, dense, rocky, off-white head that lasted throughout. Aroma of hops, crystal malt, pine, citrus, light grapefruit, slight earth and wet field grass. Flavour of fresh bitter citrus and earthy pine needles round with just a touch a underlying toasted malt. Surprisingly good IPA beer. Discovered while visiting the In-Laws in Baltimore.

12 oz. bottle from Total Wine, Virginia Beach, VA. Dark orange pour with a short off-white head. Aroma of tangerine, grapefruit rind, and wet grass. Great citrus forward bitter hop taste but with an assertive malt backbone to help balance the flavor. Moderate lingering bitterness on the palate. Nicely done.

This beer lacks the proper theme to what make a good ipa. It's clean and highly fizzy, but lacks the proper malt and the carbonation makes the hops to potent without a distinct flavor

Starts with a noticably up-front aroma with a strong grapefruit note. Taste comes in waves with this one. First you get a strong vegatable hop over the malt, but almost immediately an oily deep bitterness takes over, and sticks around. The tast lingers here. This is not a shy beer, and the background malt covers for the substantial bitterness and aroma that the beer comes with. Maybe a bit too high on the hop alphas, but a solid IPA.

UPDATED: DEC 3, 2014 Pouts amber-orange with a one finger off white head with nice lacing. Aroma is citrus, pine, bready malts, light tropical fruits, and some sweet malts. Taste is a nice balance bewteen citrus/pine and bready sweet malts. Has a medium body with a semi creamy mouthfeel and a semi-moderately bitter, medium-long finish. Overall, a tasty, refeshing, well balanced IPA.

This American style IPA is aggressively hopped at a rate of over 2lbs. per barrel. Big notes of citrus and pine compliment a reserved but firm malt backbone.

Bottle. Amber pour with a tall, fluffy tan head. Lovely aroma before I even put my nose to the glass! Nice floral hoppiness with tropical fruit, citrus oils, pine and caramel. Big pine and floral hops, citrus oils, hop resins, toasted malt, caramel and tropical fruit in the flavor profile. Body is medium and slightly chewy with oily legs underneath and a lingering hops bitterness. Creamy, bubbly carbonation. Ends with more caramel, tropical fruit, citrus oils, pine and floral hops. Yummy!
