foyle (224) - Wyoming, USA - JUL 21, 2013
Appearance: clear, golden appearance Aroma: mild floral hops Mouthfeel: medium, slightly sticky Flavor: somewhat citrusy hop bitterness initially and a dry bitterness at the end with a sweet caramel malt flavor in between Overall: Nicely balanced and not over the top. Very enjoyable.

DrSilverworm (6034) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 17, 2013
12oz bottle, from Jungle Jimís in Eastgate. Clear golden color, thin white head. Couple splecks of lace. Medium-plus body. Smooth, lighter carbonation. Lightly dry in the finish. Not bitter, nor assertive like your typical IPA. Just a moderate bitterness, light sweet taste. Some light citusy, lightly piney hop. More malt forward, but itís not a caramel, sweet malt, more clean and biscuity. As far as IPAs go, though, this doesnít really satisfy in the way that they usually do. Sub par for the category.

beaz1591 (238) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - JUL 15, 2013
IPA glass. Pours a hazy gold, decent white head and some lacing. Sweet pine hops for the nose. Not bad for an IPA, the sweet tasting hops unfortunately drop off too quick and it finishes a bit watery for my taste. Still a very enjoyable beer.

Pours a full bodied golden color. Has a barely noticeable aroma of sweet hops. Tastes good, but maybe too light of a body for an IPA.

rollinsr (371) - Atlanta, GEORGIA - JUN 20, 2013
Pours clear light golden color with a thin lace of off-white head. Aroma is faint but noticeably sweet and slightly tart. Flavor starts sweet with some prune notes and gradually becomes more tart across the palate but not overwhelmingly so. I actually really like this one, good balance without to much sweet fruity overkill.

Chudwick (2011) - Cincyucky, Kentucky, USA - JUN 17, 2013
12oz bottle (chambered in the local piggly wiggly of HH, SC) - pours gold with small white head. Nose is wet herbs. Flavor adds grapefruit, citrus and cereal. Moderately bitter finish with metallic aftertaste. Expected more after having the DIPA version last night.

This beer isn't quite hopped up enough. Has interesting flavors but is malt heavy and seems to have caramel malt flavors that fight against the hops. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jbruner (2181) - Athens, Georgia, USA - MAY 27, 2013
Pours a clear hidden orange on tap with thin off-white head that leaves moderate lacing. Aroma is slight citrus and floral hops, crappy pale lager like malt. Taste follows, slightly bitter finish and more of a pale ale malt. Decent, but nothing special.

12 oz bottle in Highland Brewing pint glass. Pours a hazy orange-golden with a modest amount of white head. Head has moderate retention and good lacing. Good carbonation. Some nice citrusy hop notes paired with a solid malt background. But ... While not flawed or imbalanced, this is too much of an "IPA light" in terms of flavor and, a bit, in its lean mouthfeel. For some, this should make it a highly drinkable IPA, at least on a hot day, but I was hoping for something richer and bolder. 12 oz bottle in Highland Brewing pint glass.
