From BA review on 2-5-12 - Had on-tap at the Microbrewery Appearance - A moderate golden color with a decent retaining head. Larger carbonation bubbles clung to the sides of the glass. Smell – A very good citrus hop aroma first meets the nose, with an ever so slight sweet caramel aroma present. This caramel aroma however is quickly lost as it is pushed aside at the end by more citrus aroma. Taste – A nice malty sweetness first hits the tongue. With some caramel and toffee notes. These are soon subdued by some nice citrusy and grapefruit hop flavors. Some floral notes come through in the end rounding out the taste quite nicely. Mouthfeel –Lighter in body then I had anticipated. While lighter than expected there was a subtle creaminess about it, which soothed the palete. This combined with a moderate level of carbonation made it very drinkable and enjoyable. Overall – A very nice “Sweeter IPA”. More soothing and less biting then the traditional IPA. If you have the chance give it a try.

j12601 (6607) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - FEB 27, 2014
On tap at the brewpub. Pours a very hazy gold with a medium sized white head that sticks around for a while. Soft citrus, some faint musk. Quite pretty. Medium-bodied, nice biting grapefruit hits right away, bold citrus. Bitter grapefruit and quinine into the finish, lingering bitterness. Quite good.

On tap at The Gamble Mill. Cloudy copper pour with a quickly dissipating white head. Okay lace. Nose is citrus hop and some caramel malt. Flaor is citrusy, slightly resiny hop balanced with a biscuity malt. A fairly bitter, almost astringent finish. Medium body, good carbonation. Overall a good IPA. The pour was too cold and was into a fairly straight sided glass, neither of which assisted in the aroma department.

Had on draft @ The Gamble Mill brewpub, in Bellefonte, PA, USA .. first stop of the day - light nose .. deep gold amber .. great lacing .. caramel sap and indy pine .. . depressing blues .. easy to put down but not awfully interesting .. . . Let’s none of us have a cow.

jar72404 (426) - USA - MAY 14, 2011
On tap at brewpub. Clear gold with thin white head. Aroma is citrus and pine. Pine dominates the flavor but citrus also noticeable. Could use more malt to balance the bitterness.

DiarmaidBHK (3466) - Pennsylvania, USA - APR 10, 2011
Pours dark golden with a thin head and leaves no lacing. Nice citrus notes on the nose. Nice hop explosion on the swallow but finishes a little thin.

On tap at The Gamble Mill. Great hoppy nose. Citrus, pine, orange, resin, and light ozone. Light sweetness. Medium golden clear with thin white lacing head. Medium body with medium carbonation. Starts sweet with caramel, pale malt, and honey. Big hop flavor from start to finish - getting stronger at the end. Dry after with big hop flavor.
