12oz bottle from jsquire - Thank You!! Pours golden amber, head is thick, just off white. Fragrant to the nose, like Jennifer Garner blowing me a hop kiss. Slight pine and resin. On the tongue itís like Jennifer and I are having passionate love. We meet in the woods, we are holding hands, as this beer rolls over my tongue, Jennifer pulls me close to her naked body, I feel her delicious warmth all over my tongue. Perfect balance, Iím in love.
-To IPA is to be.

Bottle. Clementine and pine/orange peel aroma. Golden yellow with nice head. Sweet orange malt and strongly bitter pine and orange peel flavor. Great balance. Very nice - a great beer that breaks me out of my IPA doldrums.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
1/22/13 - Enjoy By Day. Draft at Fat Heads on the "Sahside". Pours orange amber with frothy white head. Good lacing. Crystal clear. All stinky, delicious hops. Citrus and pine, grapefruit and orange. Not overly bitter but full of citrus. Piney hop punch, quick and tart. Rather refreshing on a bitterly cold afternoon. Nice caramel base, but not too sweet. Excellent. The East Coast Pliny.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from artmcd8. The pour is an orange-gold color with a moderate off-white head. Lots of pine and tropical fruit in the aroma with a bit of grass and herbal hop scent. This is sharp and bitter with fresh-cut pine and some puckery grapefruit and lemongrass flavors. Dry and bitter in the finish. Oily and medium-bodied with a bit of biscuity malt flavor sneaking in there. Good beer. Not as refined as some the best but definitely a tier two IPA.

4.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
On tap at the Daily Growler Upper Arlington Ohio, Wow this is another great IPA. They canít put it in a growler because of some silly brewery regulation but other than that it is incredible! Pour is almost golden just a touch lighter than usual. Aroma is knock you back pine and some floral notes. It is fresh and incredible fresh. It is carbonated just right for a lively aggressive mouthfeel. Nice flavors of caramel malt behind a beautiful agressively hopped ale. The finish is dry but balanced and beautiful. This is a very very nice IPA. Get some!

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Appearance: clear orange pour with a few inches of slightly offwhite head.
Aroma: very strong sweet citrus and floral hop blend. This beer smells amazing.
Taste: medium to high carbonation, very tingly on the tongue. Mouthfeel somewhat chalky. Bitter pine and sweet floral hop flavor. Subtle taste of tropical fruit too, papaya or mango, maybe melon. Biscuit malt saltiness too.
Finish: soft but sharp bitterness. Pine flavor left over. Wet feeling in the front of the mouth, dry in the back.
Overall: good ipa. Hop forward for sure, a little too much bitter than I prefer but good.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a clear golden orange color with a nice 1 cm head that lingers a bit. Leaves some lacing too. Very nice appearance. Huge nose of fresh pine and some citrus too. No malt in the aroma. Taste is a hop bomb of fresh pine and citrus. Strong bitterness, light sweetness. A touch of biscuity malt comes through when it warms a little. Finish is very dry, pine taste lingers. Medium body, slightly oily and bubbly mouthfeel. A really good ipa. Love everything but the ultra dry finish.
