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.

Jamesthebrit (416) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - FEB 6, 2013
UPDATED: NOV 20, 2013 Updated for 2013 release A: Floral, hint of malt. Subtle citrus. Smooth. 2013: Huge citrus note. Not as much floral this time but still there. Huge honey note. Sweet. A: Slight haze in a medium golden color. A bit on a lighter side. 2013: Same. T: Certainly not a light beer. Good balance of hops, citrus, and malt. And when I mean good balance I mean great balance. 2013: Same. Definately a little malt a little citrus and a little hops. Amazing balance. P: A bit of lingering bitterness is offputting but smooth on the palate with a pretty solid finish. 2013: Same Overall the first couple bottle of this I had I enjoyed very much but thought nothing of it... But this time, bottle number three, I realize that for what this beer is, it’s pretty amazing. It’s nothing big or epic but what you have here is the best showing of what a pale ale can be. Good hops, good balance and nothing offputting about it. Somewhere between easy drinking and a big something to talk about ale. Simply a great beer.

An excellent way to finish a new beer filled week. A medium hop aroma, but a stronger body. Very fresh and effervescent, this is some top notch stuff.

migwell (276) - Northampton, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 1, 2016
Poured into a tall tulip, this pale orange filtered brew produced a half-inch, pretty persistent head with lots of tiny bubbles shooting up. Aroma of (surprise) hops and malt. I like the wet hopped style, and this is a really good example, with a bit of a brief bitter finish. Got some orange, a bit of caramel and it is a bit resinous. I think wet-hopped could be a style of its own, since this, and others (Tree House Julius, for example) are pretty different from standard IPA’s. Anywho, this is a good brew, and per the sub-style, can only be a seasonal, following the hop harvest. Salud!

My 250th beer drank! This doesn't mean anything for anyone else, but this is for my own reference. However, it was a great beer. A bold IPA that has a kick of flavor in ever drink. Smooth bodied and smells fresh. Some of Grand Rapid's finest.

HuskerTan (1582) - Kearney, Nebraska, USA - JAN 24, 2016
Bottle. A- Juicy, pine, pineapple, orange, tropical citrus. A- Golden color, clear liquid, white head. T- Pine, bitter, juicy, citrus, orange. P- Medium body, average texture, average carbonation, balanced finish. O- The deScription basically sums it up. Smells and tastes of very juicy tropical fruits with a bit of juicy pine. The more you drink the more it fades into a piney bitterness. Not too shabby at all.

jahshuwuh (560) - USA - JAN 7, 2016
A hazy orangish color with finger of white head. Smells of citrus, honey, malt. Taste of mango, pineapple, apple, a little cardboardy (it is pushing four months old though), lot of caramel maltiness throughout, the hops are a little spicy but well distributed, grassy, a touch of dank. Medium carbonation, alcohol well hidden. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
