A pretty bitter citrus hoppy beer. Drinkable fur sure but after taste was too bitter for me hence the three starts.

On draft at the Wrigleyville GI Brewpub. The pour is a crystal clear orangey-amber with a thin white head and a spotty lace. The aroma is definitely big on the grapefruit and melon, followed up by a nice malt character. There definitely isn't as much of a hop presence as I'd like in a good IPA. The flavor is also quite reminiscent of that. There is a malt dominance over the light fruitiness and minimal hop attributes. The mouth feel is a little thin and light with a soft carbonation and a pretty bitter, dry lingering aftertaste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Extra dry on the finish. Session IPA that packs a punch of bitterness that is dank and full of pit fruit flavour. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Extremely bitter. I am fairly new to drinking craft beers, spent years drinking domestics. I get excited each time I get a new bottle. I had the 312 and thought it was pretty good. I couldn’t wait to try this one out. Upon opening I was teased with a great aroma and then when I poured I was even more excited because it was a beautiful color, like ginger ale with a hint of orange. When I tasted I was shocked, bitter as hell and not good at all. Has a hint of orange flavor. Could not get this down, dumped it.

On draft at the airport in Tampa. Smells wonderful. Bright beautiful hops. Citrus, grass, and orange rhine. Appears golden orange with a white lacy top. Tastes fresh for a draft beer. Very surprised. Great ipa
