ICEatALAMO (1305) - Troy, Michigan, USA - NOV 14, 2014
Draft at brewery. The pour is a standard orange. The aroma has even less hops than the standard ipa. The taste is full of hops, but a fairly clean finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

nuplastikk (5799) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 27, 2013
Tap at Franklins. Hazy orange-brown body, creamy white head. Very clean citrus hop flavors with a cleanish body as well. Quite refreshing and palatable for a IIPA, while still being bold. Nice toffee caramel tones. Overall quite balanced. Solid, fruity hop character, some pine.

GT (9982) - Oceanside, California, USA - NOV 14, 2012
Tap at Franklins. Clear orange amber pour. Weak head. Collar of white foam. Decent lace. Sticky, gummy nose with a lot of butterscotch. Taste is not too astringent or boozy. Soft up front moving to very dusty with bitter orange peel. Easier to drink than the normal IPA surprisingly. Not bad. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
