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.

Very nice hoppy ale. Refreshing on a cold winter night. Nice nutty aroma, smooth IPA finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: DEC 10, 2013 Really nice winter IPA. Nice hoppiness without the astrigence of Sierra Nevada?s Celebration. Very, very drinkable.

Fantastic fruity and floral nose. Pale amber in color, murky/hazy with visible particles of yeast floating though out (that does not bother me, it might turn off someone who wasn’t already into craft beer I guess), Low carbonation and had a thin head which dispersed quickly. Hops provide some bitterness and grapefruit notes, but are not at all overwhelming, and balanced well by the subtle malt backbone. Tastes a bit like Tallgrass 8-bit, but slightly less bitter.

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.

Aroma is pine, grapefruit and fresh yeast. The flavor is grapefruit, spruce, malts, citrus, mild fruit, not much sweetness and a rather dry/medium bitter finish.

OzarkElmo (301) - Poplar Bluff, Missouri, USA - JAN 1, 2012
Pours a deep, clear amber with moderate head, mostly diminishing. Very nice on the nose - citrus and pine with grapefruit being quite noticeable. Well-balanced IPA with a good, bitter finish. A great effort from the brewers at Free State - Prost!

Bottle @ home, courtesy of jcnielsen. Thanks Jetson! Pours a clear, rust orange appearance with a light brown head. Super spicy, piney hoppy, fairly resiny, caramel malty, sticky aroma. Sticky resiny hoppy, big piney/grapefruity hoppy flavor with just a mild bitterness and light sweetness. Tasty brew!

Clear amber beer with a short lived sticky off-white head. Fresh, bright orange hoppy nose with some pine and resin. Lots of fruity flavors in here with manderin orange, tropical fruits, apricot jam and red grapefruit. This beer is dominated by the hops with a long, pinching bitter finish. This is a nice big hop head beer.
