Pours a cloudy orange with frothy white head. Aroma is full of hoppy resin and floral orange. Taste is moderately bitter with a sweet almost boozy finish. Great beer!

Brandon1989 (492) - Euless, Texas, USA - MAY 16, 2015
Pours a hazy golden color with a medium off white head that had good retention and left good lacing. The aroma is floral hops, white bread, and mild hop resin. The flavor is floral slightly bitter hops up front and finishes with a sweet malty finish.

Garbageman (486) - Lexington, South Carolina, USA - MAY 13, 2013
From bottle. Pours a deep mahogany with decent tan head. Aroma was sweet with a floral hops. Taste was caramel and an unbalanced sweetness. Has bittering but was way too sweet.

A pretty good offering. Has a nice malty backbone and a nice blend of hops, but not the crisp cleanness I’d expect from a pale ale. Still refreshing. Huge amounts of carbonation though.

chicowv (477) - Canaan Valley, West Virginia, USA - DEC 17, 2012
12 oz bottle thanks to Ben & Marti: Pours slightly cloudy, rich brass color. Slightly white head, low CO2. Decent lacing. Aroma of light floral and citrus hops., clean and crisp. Nice flavor, light grapefruit, slightly bitter, super smooth. Great lighter flavor/colored beer with a 6% alcohol balance. Could be dangerous on a summer night.

I had low expectations and was supprised. It had more flavor and palate than expected. Aroma was typical of an IPA. Flavor had the nice bite of bittering hops but had a nice malt backbone as well. A decent effort.

NVBeer232 (467) - Reno, Nevada, USA - FEB 26, 2005
Orange color with a fluffy white head. Pretty dense lacing. Citrusy aroma, mostly of the lemon/grapefruit variety. Moderately sweet malty body with nice carbonation and piney hop flavors. Quite a bitter finish. Tasty.

Pours an opaque golden orange color with a light head made of small bubbles. The beer has a bit of a hoppy smell, but it is very light. It also has a bit of a grassy scent to it (or is that just the name?). This beer has a bit of hoppy flavor to it, but tastes more like a pale ale than an IPA to me. However, for being a fairly light flavored beer it has a fair amount of body in the mouth. Overall this is an okay beer, but not a great IPA.

12oz bottle served in a shaker pint. Poured a fairly clear dark gold with a thin white head. Piney hop aroma. Decent malt base with some caramel malt sweetness. A slight sourness. Good hop bite, but not super bitter. Medium bodied. Solid, easy drinking IPA.
