Pours clear gold with a 2 finger, frothy, off white head. Aroma is pretty big on citrus, a little pine and a hint of grass and sweet floral, hops-wise, some biscuit, caramel cereal and mineral notes, round it out. Tastes come up very piney at first, with some biscuit, caramel and herbal hops for a second, then comes the blood orange citrus, sweet fruity esters, toast and nice floral honey and fruity esters to the finish. Medium body, creamy to slightly oily feel, moderate, slightly sharp carbonation and off dry, ever so slightly slick finish. Solid IPA.

This is one of those no holds barred hop explosion... There isnít a lot of malt backbone to this. What is there is a great tasting amount of sweetness... The major shine to this beer comes from the crazy complexity to the hops. Citrus and some fruitiness... Itís good is what Iím saying... Very good.

arondee (528) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - FEB 26, 2014
Pours golden orange with a small white head. It smells like chalk, copper, grass, and earthy hops. The taste is a little sweet with a bit of honey, earthy bitter hops, and grapefruit rinds. Itís a pretty good easy to drink ipa.

Clear golden white head. Citrus nose. Green hop flavor, cloying, with decent malt background. It does taste pretty big.

Itzjerm (1000) - Taft, Tennessee, USA - FEB 17, 2014
A very nice IPA. It would be top notch if they could get some aroma out of it. As is, there is very little aroma. Sweet nice mouth feel with a citrus light pine very slight bitter flavor. The head is the most amazing part of this beer... it never goes away even after a couple of hours! Nice brew.

Homer321 (992) - Rock Ridge, Florida, USA - FEB 5, 2014
bottle via trade. pours a very clear orange color. medium white head. slightly tropical but mostly citrus hop nose. some underlying malt sweetness in the nose as well. Taste is moderately sweet with some light fruity hops, not very grapefruit-like. finished with a peppery note and a touch of warming. a little sweet for my taste. not much bitterness either.

Poured into a pint glass there was a nice head, golden color. Grapefruit and floral aroma. First sip was a little sweetness well balanced by hop bitterness. Medium carbonation and a little warmth from the alcohol. All together a very good IPA that I will have again.
