Solid IPA. Fruity, citrus aftertaste after a showcase of balanced hoppy goodness. Not too sour or intense, but lacks a complexity many IPAs this well known can boast.

Darwenus (659) - Virginia, USA - AUG 27, 2015
Not a shockingly original IPA, but a pretty good one. Pours bright orange with a lot of carbonation and average head. The aroma is citrus and malt. The flavor is citrus and malt, too, with slightly herbal/grassy notes. The finish is a little too sweet, but not enough to ruin it.

bartzluke (391) - Oklahoma, USA - AUG 3, 2015
12 oz from the room-temp bottle (so not ideal conditions). Tasty. Great balance between sweet fruity citrus taste and bitter. I’d love to try it again in better conditions.

Dark amber almost orange in color with a small white head that disappears quickly. A strong but pleasant citrus aroma. Slightly carbonated so the flavor fills your mouth. Mostly citrus peel flavor yet not too bitter. The bitterness stays in your mouth with no harsh after taste or burning in the throat. Finishes smooth. Not great but not bad. Enjoyable.

GlennHendry (129) - Oshawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 21, 2015
Smells like orange and stone fruit. Tastes citrusy, fruity with some floral notes and plenty of sweet malts. Moderately bitter. The first beer I’ve had from the OTHER Great Lakes Brewery

AdamT (253) - North Carolina, USA - JUL 20, 2015
12oz bottle from The Hop Yard in Raleigh. Orange hue, normal clarity with somewhat lasting fizzy off-white head. Okay lacing. Aroma of orange zest, and bold floral hops. Strong orange zest taste up front with more of a lasting floral hop finish. As the beer warms it is floral aroma and taste primarily. Good IPA!!

12oz bottle. Golden color with one finger head. Sweet citrus aroma. Very drinkable, sweet citrus again, not very bitter. I enjoy this kind of IPA.

Bosco (237) - Boca Raton, Florida, USA - JUL 4, 2015
Unseen from bottle but candled with no particulate and seems clear. I concur with the dry fruity aftertaste. Most enjoyable. $9.99/multi sixer at Binny?s in Forest Park IL

Bottle. Pours clear copper orange with a thin white head. Aroma is slight orange and caramel. Medium carbonation and body. Sweet flavor with hints of orange, balanced by a moderate amount of bitterness. Easy drinking and enjoyable IPA.
