12 oz. bottle at Beer Market, in Pittsburgh. Pours a hazy golden colour with medium head. Explosion of flavours! Taste is very hoppy, floral, spices. Very good IPA. Hoppy feeling stays in mouth for a long while after consumption.

quite possibly one of my favorites in this category. Readily available at my local beverage center and very potent. A thoroughly enjoyable beverage. I am a fan of fresh obnoxious slap you in the face hops. And in this case, you have it.

Pours a cloudy gold with minimal lacing. Tastes flat, despite it being on cask. I was expecting more from the description. For a hop heavy beer, it almost lacks hops. Tastes of pronounced lemon with background notes of pine.

Pours a cloudy yellow golden colour withe white head and lacing. Very nice aroma of malts and lavender. Tastes flat, but this was on cask. Tastes of lemon with a faint pine background. Not a bad beer, maybe better not on cask

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nice and smooth IPA, light amber with thin soapy of-white head. Just enough hops for flavor without taking away from the malt. Malt and hops blend well in the aroma and taste, mild astringent finish

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 ounce bottle into tulip glass, best before 4/2014. Pours slightly hazy bright orange amber color with a 2 finger dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass. Aromas of grapefruit, tangerine, orange zest, lemon zest, light mango, floral, grass, light pine, light caramel, bread, and floral/grassy earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good complexity of bright citrus hop and moderate malt notes; with good strength. Taste of big grapefruit, tangerine, orange zest, lemon zest, light mango, floral, grass, light pine, light caramel, bread, and floral earthiness. Fair amount of floral/pine bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, tangerine, orange/lemon zest, light mango, floral, grass, light caramel, and floral earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice complexity of citrus hop and moderate malt flavors; with a great hop/malt flavor balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth and fairly crisp/sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a damn nice IPA. All around good balance and complexity of citrus hop and moderate malt flavors; and very smooth to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. single from Big Red Liquors in Carmel, Indiana. Strangely for an IPA, the only aroma I got off this was a bubblegum (but not estery) scent. Slightly hazy with a light/medium yellow color. I was a bit worried by the smell and that I got some a very slight flavor of bubblegum quickly, but it soon resolved into a good blend of sweet caramel malt and nicely balancing earthy and citrus bitterness. It’s more like an English IPA with some American hops thrown in (which is a good thing). I had this past the "purchase before month" on the bottle (October and it’s February now), so the hops may have been a bit muted, but they’re still quite nice. The hops really hang around on the tongue though and get spicy! This one grows on you as you drink it.
