Bottle. Clear gold with a slight tint. Aroma is big lemon and orange citrus notes. The taste follows adding a touch of malt but, the clean, fresh hops take over and basically pop in your mouth with juicy citrus. The body is light on the palate with high carb and a short finish. Overall, as good as they come for harvest ales.

Transfer from BA review on 1-17-14-
Poured from bottle into a pint glass
Appearance – The beer pours a clear golden color with a two finger head of a white color. The head has a good level of retention, slowly fading to leave a moderate level of lace on the sides of the glass.
Smell – The aroma of the beer heaviest of a citrus smell being a mix of citrus hop and a bit of sweet orange. Along with these aromas are notes of other hops with some pine and herbal smells present. Some light sweeter caramel smells as well as a bit of a bready smell are there as well giving an overall nice balanced IPA smell.
Taste – The taste begins with some tropical fruit tastes as well as a bit of a bready taste. The tropical fruits are largely of tangerine and mango but also have hints of pineapple within. Along with the bready and fruit are some hop flavors of a citrus nature. As the taste advances some grassy and herbal flavors come to the tongue. A moderately strong pine flavor later joins the tongue more toward the middle to the end giving a nice little resinous bite to the beer. While a sweeter caramel taste develops more toward the middle of the taste, it, as well as some of the fruit dwindle a bit toward the end. With some earthy hops coming to the tongue at the end of the taste, and combined with the rest of the tastes of the brew, one is left with a somewhat crackery, lightly sweetened and moderately hopped flavor to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the average side in terms of thickness and creaminess with a carbonation level that is on average side as well. For the drinkability and the style both were quite appropriate, creating a rather easy drinking but flavorful IPA.
Overall – A good hop blended IPA. Rather tasty overall.

Draught @ Headkeeper: This one pours a fairly clear straw yellow color. There was a small white head and it left some lacing. The aroma is a bit milder. Some malts, citrus and earthy hops, and slightly musty. The taste is good. Nice malt body. Somewhat tart/bitter flavor. Some pine and lemon hops. Nice.
