Pour is a clear amber with a small white head. Aroma is piney hop with some onion. Flavor is big time onion with a resiny finish. No real malty backbone and kinda thin all around. Lots of oniony hop though. Summit hops are supposed to give off the onion flavor and I’m guessing that is what was used. At 4.7 I still would not consider this a session beer. I think 3.2 would fit the category better.

Clear coppery orange. Small fizzy white head, almost no retention. Aroma is sweet, citrus, pine, lemon, grapefruit, fresh and clean. Flavor much the same. Medium body. Sweet with medium bitterness in finish. Fresh, clean, balanced, silky smooth. Definitely sessionable.

3 bouteilles de 12 oz. Bière orangée avec une mousse blanche qui a un peu de texture. Le nez est très invitant avec cette tonne d’agrume. La bouche est bien constituée pour une bière de soif, c’est plaisant. Les agrumes du nez se retrouvent sous une mince couche de malt. Trop facile à boire, j’aime cette bière tout comme cette brasserie. Achetée au Vermont.

Pretty much tastes like really fresh, dry-hopped bud light. I don’t really mean that as a dig, either....it’s crisp, clean, goes down easy. There’s a lot of hop aroma, and not much hop palate; nor is there any body to it at all. I get the idea, and it’s a good one, just needs a little more.

Alextricity (509) - Michigan, USA - MAR 20, 2013
Appearance: Pours with a nice three finger head, but it goes down pretty quickly. What’s left behind is a thin, white layer of foam. Patchy lacing. Beer’s a very slightly hazy sunset yellow/orange color. Smell: Holy hops. This beer isn’t shy about it either. Heavy hop aromas, with a largely predominant grapefruity smell. Taste/feel: Straight away, I found with Ale la Reverend by Short’s that I’m not a huge fan of these "Light IPAs" as I refer to them. This has an extremely piney, resinous, and hoppy flavor with very little to no malts to be traced -- surprisingly decent. For the style, this is the best session IPA I’ve had. However, I’d rather have a full-on IPA. Too long/didn’t read: This would make for a pretty average IPA, but it makes for an above average session IPA.

Big ups to my man slovak for hooking me up with this as an extra in a trade. Pours nice and golden with a chunk of frothy head. Nice aroma, bits of grapefruit and citrus goodness. Well balanced, smooth up front, with a bit of sweetness and then a nice hoppy finish. well done.

UDBeernut (1676) - Moving to Jax, Florida, USA - MAR 19, 2013
Bottle pours pale yellow, frothy white head with good retention. Nose of citrus and malt. Taste is balanced with a ton of late addition hops o give the blast of hop flavor. Finish is clean and a light body. This is a great APA. Yes, APA it is as it’s not sexy to call it all day APA.... Rating adjusted as such.

Jesterdeal (1842) - Marlton, New Jersey, USA - MAR 19, 2013
On tap and pretty fresh at the Mexican Food Factory. Aroma of underripe grapefruit, citrus peel, and a hint of Christmas pine. Pours clear amber with a nice creamy head. Taste is wonderfully hoppy with a good complexity of grapefruit citrus and slight resin. Mouthfeel is very light so it is easy to take down a pint of this in no time. Truly a masterful IPA. Went through two more pints after trying.

trapped (757) - New York City, TURKEY - MAR 19, 2013
Drought. Tasted on 20 March 2013. Rich yellow color, beige foamy big head, hops aroma, balanced bittersweet hoppy taste with a hint of lavender aroma, low carbonation, long lavender finish (sounded like John D.MacDonald :)

marv3mania (184) - Lansing, Michigan, USA - MAR 18, 2013
Bottle poured into tulip glass. Appearance is golden with an orange tint and very little head. Aroma is lovely citrus (grapefruit and tangerine) scent. Taste, however, is less citrus and more pine. The pine is actually a little overwhelming. Not a bad taste, but a bit disappointing after the wonderful aroma.
