COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our hoppy, refreshing session drinker. This bright golden colored brew offers aromas of tropical fruit and pine, along with a juicy citrusy blast on your palate. Finishes with a lingering dry bitterness. Peace, Love and Hoppiness.

Draft to pint at Dutch’s. Looks good; a transparent burnt-orange with white head. Smells nice; pleasantly hoppy. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. Very nice session IPA.

Tmoney99 (10100) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 9, 2012
Draft. Poured a clear copper color with an average creamy off-white head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate sweet citrus and earthy aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. My expectations where exceeded.

NobleSquirrel (3437) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 28, 2012
Draft at GTMW 12. Pours an orangey gold with a sticky white head. The nose is clean and fruity, citrusy and strong hopping. Faint toasty malts. On tasting, medium-high bitterness. Light bodied. Some crackery malt. Not a ton going on but it is refreshing overall. Nice.

On tap at the brewpub: came clear golden, frosty white foam. Nose is subtle, spearmint, green grass, pine and citrus. More of the same on the palate with mild bitterness and a somewhat dry finish. Very sessionable and similar to Founders All Day IPA. Good beer for hop heads on a hit day. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This beer gave me a chance to reacquaint myself with one of the best brewers in Ohio. A decent sessionable IPA was a good way to break up the monotony of big imperial stouts. Even if you pace yourself eventually the palate gets tired.

Aroma / Appearance - A clear golden body sparkled with light carbonation. Fluid and soft, the body is a mixture of lemon zest chased with water. Simple and effective it does what it needs to and nothing more.

Flavor / Palate - Easy to finish this beer was gone in just a few sips. Pine, citrus, and grapefruit are bright for a low ABV IPA. It fades fairly quickly which is to be expected. I’ll have to get up to Cleveland some time soon to try the rest of their new beers.

LinusStick (2757) - Moon Twp, suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 12, 2012
A weak tasting and boring IPA, though would be a perfect summer session ale. Aroma was very floral. Flowers, pine and perfume. Pour was a nice medium gold with a one finger white head. Taste, again was very floral and weak. Rose pedal, sweet malt and hints of lemongrass. No real hops to speak of. Decent carbonation. I wouldn’t label this as an IPA

DrSilverworm (5051) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 12, 2012
On tap. Clear amber color. Nice thin foamy off-white head, that really stays. Good lace. Active-looking carbonation. Really nice smooth texture, dry finish. Massive hay, straw citrus peel hop aroma. Oregano. Very flavorful, with a great aftertaste. Good light bitter taste, but it doesn’t distract from the aroma, complements it. Really, a great session IPA, gives founders All-day a run for it’s money.

FROTHINGSLOSH (4547) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 6, 2012
UPDATED: OCT 1, 2012 Sampled on draft at 3R6P this beer poured a caramel-amber color with a medium sized creamy yellow-white head that left great lacing. The aroma was bitter grapefruit, lemon, faint pine and perfume. The flavor was bitter and dry with grapefruit, lemon, perfume and faint pine. Long dry and bitter mixed hop finish. Medium body. Ok.

Beerman6686 (3892) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 9, 2012
this poured a semi cloudy orange color with a white cover. Aroma was lightler citrusy hops, some lemon peel, and toasted grain. Falvor as much the same, fairly balanced, but a little too heavy for what it is, and not much hop pop that their other ipas have. A bit disappointing.
