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.

seymour (1847) - Maplewood, Missouri, USA - FEB 2, 2014
UPDATED: FEB 3, 2014 Poured from a 12oz brown bottle into a nonic glass. Medium reddish amber colour with sudsy off-white foam, long-lasting with lace. Rich malty flavour with intensely resiny American hops (probably Columbus?) flavours and aromas: dank, grapefruit, black current. Light-medium body, average carbonation, lingering aftertaste. A very nice American IPA. So far, this and the Ironman stout are the only Free State beers I liked enough to consider buying again.

Finhead (1591) - OFallon, Illinois, USA - JAN 9, 2015
A hazy, orange-brown color with an off-white head. The aroma has a strong citrus with notes of orange rind and grapefruit. It has a medium body with slightly oily texture and lively carbonation. The taste is moderately bitter that continues to bite long into the finish.

nALEHEAD (3) - Salina, Kansas, USA - DEC 24, 2011 does not count
Pleasingly drinkable IPA with a nice holiday spirit. Grapefruit presence is a favorite.

Great smell. Not as strong a flavor as I’d prefer. Light on hops. Very tasty, still.

nsquishee (637) - Richfield, Minnesota, USA - FEB 9, 2013
Very sweet citrus flavor with lots of malting. Decently hopped, but very intense sweetness dominates. Not bad.

UDBeernut (2582) - Between JAX and SGJ, 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.
