A medium light bodied beer with an intense hop aroma and flavor. This beer will wake up your senses to fine American hops and discover the tastes of citrus, flowers and pine.

Poured from bottle with an orange color with an average head. Aroma of pine and caramel. Flavors included earthy and garbagey elements / vegetal. Firm bitterness was the best thing going for this one. So so beer.

Man, kinda surprised by the low scores here. Pours golden, somewhat translucent capped by a off white head that reduces to a soapy looking cap. While I agree the nose is slightly weak, taste features plenty of hop resin, pine, and bitterness all topped on top of a medium body. Pine and dryness linger for a bit. This is pretty decent.

I saw recently that this beer won the gold medal over two hearted in a competition in frankenmuth.....it was in frankenmuth. Not a chance. Bad ipa.

12 oz bottle poured to pint glass. Murky, yeasty light gold color with medium head. Picked this up because I read that the brewer claims he created Two Hearted when he worked for Bell’s. This beer is okay, but it doesn’t run with Two Hearted. Nice malt/hop balance with just the right citrus kick for an IPA. finish is bitter, but yeasty.

12 oz. bottle picked up in Toledo. Pours a clear orange golden color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have some citrus, light resiny character, toasted bread, flavor becomes just bitter with no real flavor profile, pass in the future.

So.. I can?t smell cuz I have a cold. So I gave it a 7.... I dunno... It seemed like rounding up the provocative name would give this beer a little more of a fighting chance... Unfortunately for it that couldn?t really save it.... It?s citrusy but there?s like a TON of floaty yeast which seems inappropriate.... Couple that with I had this right after a two hearted and Yeah...

Motobashi (106) - Windsor, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 16, 2015
Poured a cloudy, reddish gold. Minimal head that dissipated quickly. Soft carbonation. Intense citrus aroma. Fresh, slightly sweet, strong hop flavour. Strong, long bitter finish. Not and IPA fan, but this is very good.

sudomorph (929) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 7, 2015
12oz bottle. Pours a slightly hazy, golden orange with a one finger, white head that leaves a nice coating. Aroma has nice notes of citrus, resin, pine, grapefruit, and slight caramel. Taste is on the bitter side. Citrus, resin, pine, sweet caramel, and a long, bitter finish. Medium body and carbonation. Clean in the mouth with a dry finish. Overall good but could be better. Slightly too much bitter without enough flavour to match it. Citrus, pine, resin, and caramel.

gilvanblight (819) - Windsor, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 9, 2014
Very hazy slightly orange pour. Soapy head. Smells like grapefruit. Has that IPA grapefruit tadte I despise. I’m sure it’s a good beer but not for me.

czar (5839) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 14, 2014
pours unclear bright golden with a nice off-white head, some retention and lacing. sugary malts, plain sugars - barley, pine, tingling booze and pepper, muted citrus, some strawberry-like hops, some garbagy notes, fruitiness - sweet over-ripened if not rotten fruits. low carboantion, light body - oily and sticky, harsh grassy-spicy citrusy-piney finish. blah.
