this beer is awesome. its pale color belies the complexity of the flavors. the aroma gives away most of them. very green and floral in the aroma and taste. i just think it nailed my favorite parts of hops. there is bitterness, but what i love about hops is the fresh "green-ness" that they can contribute. Love Love Love this one.

jcr (2315) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - JUN 19, 2015
Draft. Clear golden body with a frothy white head, mostly lasting. Aroma of citrus, toasted grain, orange juice, lemon, grapefruit. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, water/velvety texture, lively carbonation. On the sweet side for an IPA, but so much tastier (to my current preferences) than a resin/pine bomb. Juicy at first, but turning thicker in the finish, like pulpy orange juice.

Pours golden Amber from draft with thin head. Beautiful Citrus aroma. Very light malty taste, not especially bitter though lingering aftertaste. Medium body. Light IPA, feels like a session IPA though not at 7.2%. Undoubtedly a quality brew but I prefer more flavorful beers. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

egg (140) - USA - JUN 4, 2015
Bottle on 6/4/15. Pours a clear gold with a small white head with substantial lacing. Looks like a bit like a budweiser. Doesn’t actually smell that different either. Faint hops, crisp, floral. Taste is the same. Pretty light and crisp but nicely balanced. Pine, grassy, some citrus bitterness, caramel malts. Not at all a hop forward/dominant IPA. Very drinkable. Orange flavored burps. Ok..

ElCapitan22 (253) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 16, 2015
Pours a clear gold color with decent lacing and head retention. Smells lemony and piney with similar taste qualities. This is a really good beer!

Dr_Fellini (791) - Norfolk, Virginia, USA - MAY 4, 2015
Draft at Norfolk Taproom. Pours a mostly clear light golden yellow color with an off white head. Aroma has a great hoppy presence, with nice fleshy fruit and pine. Same in the flavor. Puts hoppyum to shame. Very nice.

My wife described it as a flavor punch in the mouth. Great hoppy bite. Great taste best IPA I’ve had in a while

deepeary (281) - Ontario, CANADA - APR 26, 2015
Undated bomber. Pours a clear gold colour with frothy white head. Nose is tame, hoppy, citrus, pine and flowers. Taste is somewhat muted, very balanced. Nice bitterness. Citrus and pine. Bitter finish. Has a sort of herbal character that is really unique. Good, not great.
