Golden color with a heavy citrus-floral hop aroma. Flavor is hop dominant with citrus, sugar, bready malts and some pine. Smooth and hoppy finish. Pretty good IPA.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at Allentown brewpub. Pours a red amber with an off white head. Nice grapefruity hop aroma. Flavor of pale malts with a toasty accent, countered by a citrusy yet bitey hoppiness. Dry finish has lingering grapefruit rind bitterness, along with a distracting astringency.

Pours a nice copper color with a faint white head. Powerful aroma of hops with some malts. Taste is heavily bitter on the back end with some citrus-grapefruit, and sweet malts. Slow drinker, but well done.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft @ Allentown Brew Works, pre-BCTC beerventure, courtesy of mj. Pours a clear, bright orange color; white head with decent lacing. Dense, nicely resiny citrus hop character in the aroma, but with some sort of sweet, grainy and herbal note. Medium-to-full, chewy hop mouthfeel: dense candy sugar and resiny citrus / fruit hop character; good hops, but sort of an odd, doughy off-note in there as well. Lengthy, citrus hop and doughy finish.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at the Allentown brewery. Clear amber orange color, standard CO2 head, medium sized bubbles, no foam. Nose of earthy cannibus and grapefruit hops, some patchouli, a slight BO sweaty note and some pepper in the nose. Bitter wood sap and dry pine tasted along with more of the soapy patchouli hop flavors. Biting and astringent, good but isn’t exactly an upper echelon IPA. The perfume-chemical notes, which are very mild and just barely noticeable, probably need to be cleaned up.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tap. Cloudy copperish color. Aroma was overpowering of hops. Next to no balance. Very light and the flavor went away as soon as it was swallowed. Could have been better hopped.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
on tap-pours a light tan head with some lacing and copper color. Aroma is plenty of both medium hops-citrus and medium malt. Taste is plenty of both medium hops-citrus-pine-mild bitterness and medium malt-some sweetness-caramel. The bitterness at the finish increases through the beer. Good carbonation.
