12 oz bottle. The pour is a gorgeous golden color, with a hint of orange, and a bright white, decently thick head. The head fades a little slower and leaves a beautiful lace. The aroma has a decent amount of citrus, tiny hints of pine behind the hoppiness, and then a surprisingly stronger aroma of caramel. The taste starts off with the bitterness that I'd expect, and then moved through some nice fruity flavors, and into an almost sweet finish. It is pretty dry, just like one would expect in an IPA. Solid beer! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A clear yellow gold / orange pour with a medium white head. Has aroma of caramel malt fruity with citrus notes, floral pine hops, yeast and mild bready notes. Taste same as aroma with some sweet orange flavors. A medium and smooth body. Has a very good caramel malt background with good citrus orange notes and floral pine hops on the end for balance. AN all around solid brew, very good well balance IPA.

Bottle poured a pretty clear, light golden color with a pretty large white head. Aroma was a lot of tropical fruit notes, citrus and a nice malt undercurrent. Pretty well balanced, plenty of pine, hops and a nice caramel malt character. Flavor is pretty darn nice. Liked it.

Pours clear golden with thin white head. Aroma is juicy citrus hops with some bready malt notes. Taste is juicy citrus hops upfront that fades into some sweet malty notes on the follow through. Aftertaste is lingering bitter pine and grassy hops. Palate is medium and somewhat sticky. Overall this is an excellent IPA, well balanced with bitter hops and sweet malt playing together nicely.

On draught at the GLBC pub in Cleveland Airport. Pours a deep gold color with a long-lasting fine-bubble white head. Medium body with pronounced hop flavor and moderated associated bitterness. Slightoy perfumy character. Overall, a smooth blend of flavors for a pleasant IPA.

Classic IPA flavor, hoppy and bitter. This one tastes so good you'll be tempted to have another and another. But be careful; at 7.5% ABV you might lose count and regret it in the morning. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A medium-bodied and well hopped India Pale Ale with a dry, fruity finish. A little heavier of an IPA.
