UPDATED: JAN 6, 2014 12oz. bottle supplied by WillRunForBeer—thanks! He hated this: he was like, "just a malty IPA". Poppy seeds, multi-grain bread, lemon zest, earl grey tea, and marsh rosemary grabbed from liquid. Bitter orange peel and American ale yeast by swallow. Super drinkable; smooth and becoming. We finished this rather quickly. We needed more shit to slay. #boost level 5.5, and rising.

Bottle from RobertDale, thanks man! Aroma has nice stinky hop notes of citrus, tropical fruits, resin and herbs. Medium clear amber hue with a small white head that mostly diminished and left some lace. Flavor is medium sweet and very bitter. Palate is medium bodied and watery soft. Overall a solid IPA.

Clear auburn pour with decent off-white head. Nice lace. Lovely fruit aroma. Nice bit of spice up front followed by sweet malt, citrus, and hop resin with a long, dry bitter finish. Solid brew.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A clear deep honey body sits beneath a tall creamy, mostly smooth off white head leaving fairly delicate, almost frothy lace with dimension
Mildly assertive, yet warm and smooth, a friendly mix of hops and smoothing malts, citrus heavy with tropical and lightly floral supporting layers backed by toasted, mellow malts on a smooth med-med light body with delicate residuals echoing the flavors
12oz best by 5th week of Feb 2014 at 45º into Spiegelau IPA glass

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.
