Dogbrick (8983) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - SEP 24, 2013
Sample at Über Tavern. The beer pours a clear yellow-gold color with a medium white head that diminishes gradually. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of grapefruit, hops and malt. Medium-bodied with flavors of citrusy hops, bready malt and pine. The finish is hoppy with a lingering zesty zitrus aftertaste. Pretty good overall, glad they brought this one back.

bhensonb (11920) - Woodland, California, USA - SEP 20, 2013
Tap at The Davis Beer Shoppe. Pours light amber with a creamy beige head. Strong citrus/resin aroma. Med body. Sweet caramel with enough resin and perhaps citrus to start a slow hop burn. Gets a little earthy with time. Finishes dryish and hoppy - tho not bitingly bitter. Nice IPA.

alexsdad06 (6450) - Ohio, USA - SEP 18, 2013
Draft at Dutch’s. Pours a clear golden color with a small off white head. The aroma has nice grapefruit, zest, resin, and grassy hops light caramel and toasted malts. The flavor loses much of the character from the nose and shows a very general bitterness, grass, toasted bready malts and earth. Nose is much better than the flavor.

17 sept 2013, tap. Yellow, clear, some steady bubbles. Nose is cotton candy, bubble gum, and some pine hops. Thin body and mildly fizzy. Taste is pine hops, granola malt, bitter grassy finish. Very nice! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On cask @ redlight redlight. Strong hop aromas, pine, fresh cut grass and grapefruit zest. Pours orange gold with a white head. Strong bitterness up front with bitter citrus peel with some malty sweetness peaking through but finishes with a very floral hoppy flavor. Very nice hoppy flavor.
