COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bright golden, with citrus flavor and an aroma that combines notes of grapefruit, orange zest and a touch of the tropics. Like a warm ray of sunshine on a cold winter’s day.

On tap at the brewpub. Pours a clear amber with a gold hue and a gray head that dissipates quickly to the edges. Aroma has a good amount of citrus with a hint of resin and a light sweet grain backbone. Flavor begins with citrus that is joined by a hint of grapefruit and grass with a light grain backbone.

Nice sweet citrus aroma basic golden color. Now for the taste nice sweet malt followed by a hoppy burst a nice mix of the two. Not the best IPA available but would drink again.

Pour is a clear amber with a small white head. Aroma is a nice pine hop with some sweet malt. Flavor is more sweet malt with a nice hoppy backbone. Pretty straight forward IPA. Decent stuff.

Mild aroma of citrus and slight pine that becomes nuttier the more it sits in the glass. Pours deep orange with good head (finger-length) that stays around for awhile. Good lacing. Taste - some nutty malt; grapefruit and herbal hops. Finish started out a little fishy, but the more sips I take, the more it’s just ending bitter. Somewhat watery palate. I was expecting perhaps a little spice or something for a winter seasonal, but this is a fairly standard IPA (could also qualify as an APA). Easy to drink. Nothing great, nothing horrible.

vyvvy (4135) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - NOV 12, 2013
Pours clear golden copper with a soapy beige head. The aroma has mushy caramel malt, soap, citrus and lightly dank hops. It has a medium crisp body with modest amount of carbonation that’s pretty gentle. The flavor starts with crackery malt, dry caramel, some fruitiness and a hint of citrus. The finish is pretty astringent and adds some spicy / piny hops. Its a decent IPA.

Crash_the_dog (162) - Fairway, Kansas, USA - OCT 28, 2013
UPDATED: DEC 26, 2013 Beautifu crystal clear copper color topped with a thick cream colored head. Tons of lacing, and an inviting, crisp nose when poured from a bottle. Taste and mouthfeel are both a bit thin, making this almost feel more like a summer beer than an early winter release. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I'm not generally n IPA fan but this was a good one. Very under rated. Has at their tap room in Lawrence.

UDBeernut (1853) - Saint Johns, Florida, USA - JUN 5, 2013
Bottle from unclemike. Pours amber with a off white head that leaves plenty of lacing. Like gobs, totally coats my glass. Nose of toast, caramel, and lots o’pine. Ample bitterness charges like a bull on parade. Finish is the pine express. Dry and lingering. Body is solid.

Really nice nose, otherwise a bit disappointing. Nice amber pour with a nice white head. Some bitterness at the end. Pretty good overall!
