UPDATED: AUG 4, 2011 Bottle. The pour was a medium cloudy amber with a slight yellow hue and had a huge white frothy head that was mostly lasting and produced really nice lacing that stuck to the glass right till the end. The aroma was right up front with a strong dose of flowery hops, a mild moldy yeast, and just a splash of grain malts with notes of citrus (grapefruit) and a touch of peach. It tasted ever so lightly sweet and mildly bitter with hints of peach and citrus in the beginning then it became a tad more on the bitter side with a nice spice note and a very pronounced hoppy finish that was left hanging on the palate for a good long duration. Mouthfeel was kind of light in body and it was nice and dry in texture with the carbonation being very lively. Overall a refreshing and rather tasty IPA with the 3 timed hop flavor actually working very well on the taste buds giving you full appreciation of this brew.

micronaut129 (241) - chalfontborotowntonbergville, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 16, 2014
Golden color with good head formation. Decent carbo’s can be seen throught a slightly hazy beer. A nice hoppy aroma of citrus and pine. A rich malt taste balances the hops nicely finishing with a warming alcohol dryness. Smooth feeling but a bit thin body. Good lacing can be seen. As beer warms it mellows out to a nice flavorful brew with a decrease in the alcohol taste. Pretty good drinkability.

Emeister84 (866) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - JUL 10, 2014
Aromas of citrusy, somewhat floral, and somewhat piney hops, light caramel. Clear orange gold with a mostly lasting white head. Perfectly balanced, with snappy hops upfront, followed by caramelized malty flavors. Light-medium bodied.

Dal9000 (165) - Ohio, USA - JUL 9, 2014
Initial mild floral hoppy taste but not burning on the tongue. A complex flavor of flowers and mild mild citrus. No aftertaste which is excellent for an IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy

Barreras (938) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - JUN 24, 2014
Pours an amber color with a floral aroma. Taste is mild hops with mild bitterness after the swallow. Slightly already but the taste dissipates quickly leaving a tinge of vanilla behind.

rjplumer (378) - Foxboro, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 2, 2014
Spicy citrus hop aroma. Bites the tongue with bitterness but is then soothed with a touch of fruitiness in the background. Heavy clear orange color with a string foam head that sticks around. Refreshing and respectable IPA.
