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.

I love the aroma of galaxy hops. Tropical candies aroma with some citrus that comes through in the flavor as well. The taste is a bit too sweet in my opinion for an IPA, but its reddish brown appearance and medium body are very appealing.

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.

12 oz draft at Waldo Pizza in Kansas City, Missouri. The pour is a clear copper orange with a frothy one inch white head. The aroma is tropical citrus, grapefruit, lightly resin, some floral and a bit of pine. The taste is the bright fresh tropical fruit hop, nice soft resin, pine all balanced with a nice cracker malt backbone. The palate is medium bodied with soft natural carbonation and a mineral resin finish. Nice.

On tap at the brewpub. Pours a hazy golden yellow with a thin white head. Aroma of light fruits, apple skins, floral hops, citrus. Flavor of citrus, orange rind, grapefruit, light fruits, bitter hops in the finish. Light, fruity, hoppy. Well done IPA. 7/4/8/4/15 (3.8/5)

It poured a copper color with an off-white head. The aroma was citrusy hoppy. The taste was a nice balance of citrus, fruity hoppiness and a caramel maltiness with a little bitterness. Very well done.

Terminus (3482) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - DEC 5, 2011
Tap at old chicago Manhattan, KS-pours bright orange with an eggshell rocky white head. nose of floral hops, pine, lite resin, and herbal quality with some decent lacing as well. flavors are lots of pine and resin lots of gin like quality however there is a medicinal flavor that overpowers most of the flavors in the middle of the sip. Is that sorrachi ace i detect? For some reason, i do get a lemon cleaner flavor here. decent but not great.

Bottle received in trade from RobertDale, thanks for the opportunity! Pours a cleat dark golden color with a smallish frothy white head that quickly settles to a cap on top. Citrus, earthy and spicy hops dominate the aroma. Bready with light caramel malts provide a hint of balance to an otherwise hoppy nose. The flavor is a bit sweeter than the aroma let on. Rich bready sugary honey maltiness provides a nice base for nice hit of spicy citrus hop flavor and a moderate amount of bitterness that lingers long into every sip. Medium body with a light to moderate level of carbonation and a slick resinous mouthfeel. Nice IPA

12oz bottle poured into a Free State willibecker glass. I have had this a few times over the past year, both bottle and tap at the brewpub. This particular rating is for a bottle I just picked up. While it was fridged this problem was bottle 2-3 months ago, not terrible old. Its a clear amber beer, pours filter clear. Medium thick head that sticks around. Free State does a good job of clearing the malt and letting the hops shine. In this beer the bitterness is prominent in the aroma and the flavor. Its all hops, well done, nice beer but a bit industrial. I would like more character to the beer. But if you want hop juice its a good option.

On tap at Free State. Pours a copper color with white head. Nice piney, grassy hops aromas. Citrus, piney, grassy, tropical fruit flavors. Nice IPA, although its not your classic winter seasonal.
