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.

sfontain (811) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - NOV 1, 2013
12 oz bottle. Pale golden; diminutive white semi-frothy head becomes a ring and very sparse covering. Aroma is really fresh, wet, juicy, grassy, citrus, orange, bread. Flavor is ultra-fresh with heavy-but-not-insane levels of hops; lots of lemon and grass and hay. Medium body, smooth. World-class IPA. Awesome.

Handypaul (237) - - NOV 19, 2014
Bottle. Pours clear amber with small bubbles in a creamy white head that leaves ok lacing. Aroma is of lemon, sweet citrus and pine. Medium to heavy bittern which somewhat overpowers the malt backbone, lightly sweet trending towards sour in a light to medium body and average carbonation that all leads to a solid bitter finish. Very drinkable.

Steverus0 (192) - Shreveport, Louisiana, USA - NOV 16, 2014
Pours a pale gold with light, fluffy head. Nose of pine and citrus. Richly bitter with plenty of malt balance but even more pungently pine and vaguely citrus character. slightly slippery with above average effervescence to allow it to cool the gullet all the while burnishing the palate. This is an IPA with strength and boldness without losing its smooth and very drinkable approach. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12oz bottle. Minneapolis Golden on color. White head. Citrusy notes. A little piney. Taste: mildly bitter upfront. Finished bitter Palate: med body rich texture Overall really nice. Great aroma for a fresh hop ale.

VRH (51) - Georgia, USA - NOV 13, 2014
Pours a golden straw colour with a nice white frothy head. The aroma is dank and piney, with hints of fresh mint; very nice. The palate is light to medium bodied with a pleasant fresh hop oily sensation. The flavour is tart with subtle citrus fruit, lemon zest, strong resinous pine, grass, fresh bitter herbs, and white pepper that gives a long bitter finish mingled with subtle malt. This is a very refreshing and distinctively robust wet hop ale.

tonypreto (39) - Akron, Ohio, USA - NOV 9, 2014
Bottle poured into pint glass. Aroma was alright, the head was weak, it tasted alright, but I didn’t think it was amazing or anything. For the price, there is more out there I think.

BazookaJoe (252) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - NOV 7, 2014
Bottled on 9/30. Pours light orange with huge citrus notes in the nose. Body is nothing but fresh hops with a sweet caramel finish that balances the beer perfectly. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

eaglebones (38) - Michigan, USA - NOV 7, 2014
Bottle. Clear golden color with moderate white head. Strong citrus and pine aroma. Thin body with moderate carbonation. Really hoppy with abundant grapefruit, lemon, and resinous flavors that linger on the tongue. Balanced with some sweetness that reminds me of lemon heads. If you like strong up front hoppiness, this is a good one for you!

airrick2003 (522) - Louisiana, USA - NOV 6, 2014
Appearance: pours with a medium off white head, the beer is a slightly hazy light gold color with yellow undertones Aroma: bread, grass, pine, subtle Taste: very bitter as soon as it hits the tongue, bitter throughout, has some citrus in there, alcohol come thru somewhat as well Palate: lively carbonation, bitter aftertaste, medium mouthfeel Overall: bitterness dominates this beer, aroma is a bit subdued, a good beer but nothing stands out about it, almost an all day with more malt backbone ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle from Whole Foods, Union Square NYC. Pours a deep orange with a white head. Nose has loads of orange, citrus, bitter hops and caramel. taste like fresh hop juice. Loads of orange and lemon exploding on the palate. Super juicy. Damn good IPA
