COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This liquid dream pours a hazy golden orange straw color with a large puffy white two-finger head. First sip of this beer rewards with a super juicy hop presence bursting with fresh orange and lemon citrus then continues to introduce toasted malt undertones.

Pours a murky light golden color, with nearly no head at all. Toasty caramel, apricot and citrus nose. Medium body, wet, mildly scrubby, and somewhat chalky textures. Surprisingly big flavor of apricot, orange, and lemon. Begins sweet, but finishes nicely bitter.

zizzybalubba (1448) - Elizabeth City, North Carolina, USA - DEC 3, 2013
12 oz. bottle from SoHo Organic Market, Elizabeth City, NC (replaces an earlier review from 2009). Pours yellowish-orange with a short off-white head. Aroma of grapefruit rind and pine needles. Juicy bitter hop flavor of pineapple, grapefruit and light pine. Finishes with a touch of lemon flesh and although the taste is bitter it is still quite approachable. A great IPA.

mcox90 (1563) - Wilton, New Hampshire, USA - DEC 3, 2013
On tap @ a local watering hole. Served in a pint glass. Pours orange/gold with a 2 finger white head. Nice head retention with thick lace. Strong hop aroma featuring pine resin and grapefruit. Little bit of lemon and orange zest in there too. Flavor is a well blended mix of fruit flavors, bitter hops and a touch of caramel malt. Medium bodied and fairly easy to drink. Mild lingering bitterness. Nice job.

Pours a golden orange with a white head and aroma of hops, citrus, and toasted malt. Bittersweet taste up front, nice citrus, resin, and hops with underlying toasted malt and caramel leading to a bitter, dry finish. Nice IPA

Clear golden ale. Thin white head. Citrus and grassy notes. Bitter but not too much as the grassy flavors come through and save it ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pretty golden pour. Aroma is grassy and floral hops. Taste adds nice long bitterness and an earthy and slightly hay like presence. Fairly light. Nice.

Emeister84 (1032) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - NOV 28, 2013
Juicy citrus notes with sharp pine and subtle caramel on the nose. Slightly hazy, dull gold with a fairly fading white head. Dry, bitter, and citrusy, a little metallic. Light-medium bodied, well carbonated, and finishes with lingering fresh fruity hops.

Bottle thanks to umich43jm. Pours golden orange with an off white head that falls quickly. Amazing sweet aroma of tropical fruit, pineapple, orange. Flavor follows aroma, with lots of tropical fruit over a sweet malt backbone, then finishes with resin hop and a bot of oil. A touch of soap on the finish keeps this from being perfect, but it’s still a great drinker.
