Poured from a growler. Aroma is pine, citrus, and caramel. Flavors are pine, lemon, citrus, orange peel, and a very light malt. Very nice Ipa, pretty balanced not to bitter at all. My first fitgers beer loved it!

nuplastikk (4270) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 6, 2013
Filtered orange-tan. Nice dry strong hop mouthfeel. A solid US IPA, above par. Full bodied and bittter, the filtration really lets the hops shine.

jcr (2165) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - JUN 29, 2013
Draft. Light amber body. Frothy, off-white head. Aroma of leafy hops, flowers, pine, perfume, resin, toasted grain. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. It finishes lightly sweet and moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Taste of pine, orange peel, light resin. Lingering bitterness. Citrus hop flavors help balance the raw leaf, resin taste. Hint of orange juice in the finish.

Great beer which is worth having more than once. It is great especially nice and fresh at the brewery. It is well worth picking up a growler to enjoy.

LKay (109) - Maryland, USA - DEC 26, 2012
Love how the taste lingers. Darker and heavier than my typical grapefruit IPA love, but one of my favorite Fitger's Brewhouse beers.

piscator34 (1946) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - OCT 1, 2012
Growler sample shared with oakbluff. Typical IPA orange in colour with medium carbonation. Classic aromas of white grapefruit, grass clippings, and a bit of caramel malts. Hop forward in the mouth as well, with the citrus, white pepper, and cut grass notes blending with a solid pale and caramel malt backbone. Medium bodied, with a chunky and building bitterness. A solid example of the classic American IPA style, but the bitterness became somewhat opressive by the end of the first pint.

Included in a sampler at the brewpub. Everything in the sampler was solid. I do not remember the particulars for a few of these though.
