12 ounce bottle that I don’t know the source. Clearish amber gold with a nice rocky beige head. This is quite pleasant. Nice fruit that includes citrus and tropical varieties. Caramel is also nice. This is generally sweet but does have some grapefruit bitterness. Tropical fruit in the after taste. I like the sweetness. Nicely done.

bottled - a very good IPA. Super hoppy flavor with a hop/citrus aroma. Good stuff (been on an IPA kick lately).

put simply, this beer is just not good. Pours a very nice dark tan. outside of that, not much else to say positive. way tooo much malt and no hops in it. should be called non-hop explosion. this is just terrible.

Big hop presence on the nose, with some dankness and some citrus notes. Pours a clear amber with a full white head. There’s a touch of caramel notes before grapefruit, pith, and bitterness overtake it. Long lingering bitter finish, and a slightly slick mouthfeel help round out this beer.

Transfer from BA review on 9-3-12-
Served on tap in a pint glass
Appearance – Served a deep golden with a one finger white head. The head fades fast to give a nice level of lacing.
Smell – The aroma is rather light overall, with some pine and a grapefruit hop. Mixed with this is a light caramel and bready base. Overall it is very light.
Taste – The taste begins with a bready and caramel flavor with some notes of a pine hoppiness. The sweetness fades out more toward the middle of the taste and a lighter grapefruit flavor comes to the tongue. The breadiness remains strong till the end, where the grapefruit fades. While the grapefruit fades, a nice surge of the pine as well as a earthy hop flavor comes to the tongue, in the end a nice slightly bitter hop flavor is left on the tongue.
Mouthfeel- The body of the beer is on the average side with the carbonation level being very average as well. Good for the style, although it may have been a little better with a slightly thicker body.
Overall - A very easy drinking IPA with some nice pine flavor. Give it a go if you have a chance.

Pours clear amber into the glass, with a minimal head that leaves trace lacing. The nose is of musty citrus. Flavors are of caramel and grapefruit with a finish of nice hoppy bitterness. The mouthfeel is round and lively on the palate, with plenty of substance, complexity and a full body. Nice IPA here.

Really enjoyed this beer. Hoppy and bitter. Not super-permeating, but good stuff.

Hoppy aroma with some citrus notes, metal, wheat, grapefruit and something else that brings out the alcohol. Flavor is the same. Bitter. Very bitter. Well balanced IPA. The smell has some kind of liquor feel/very potent. Just don’t know.
