Lightly hazy amber color with a medium sized, off white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of floral hops, citrus fruits, toasted malts, and light pine. Taste of citrus, pine, light grapefruit, and lighter bitterness in the finish.

Leighton (9847) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 13, 2013
UPDATED: FEB 28, 2013 Growler. Pours hazy orange with a lasting, creamy white head. Gorgeous aroma, lots of peach, orange, melon and tangerine. Medium sweet flavor with lightly tangy citrus fruits, mellow pine needles, balanced pale malt sweetness, some earthy, lightly gritty bitterness. Medium bodied with fine, massaging carbonation. Refreshing, fairly resinous finish with more citrusy hops, grass, tangerine, peach, melon. Delicious beer, great balance. (4.4)

Growler at Bruce’s. lightly hazy gold with a light, frothy white head. Super juicy nose, orange, papaya. Light to medium sweet flavor, low bitterness but lots or fresh, juicy citrus fruits. Light to medium bodied with fine, massaging carbonation. Lightly resinous finish, some mellow dryness, citrus peels, orange, light grapefruit, papaya, melon. Great stuff. (4.3)

Damico (2355) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 12, 2013
Pours thick golden amber orange with a lacey white head, so nice. The aroma brings the hops so smooth with soft lemony profile. The flavors bring zingy lemon-lime, citra perhaps. The bite of the bitter citrus is pleasant, not really a bite at all! The body is perfectly carbonated as well.

MadRobin (1694) - Silver Spring, USA - FEB 10, 2013
On tap at Claire's in Hardwick, VT. Intensely hazy, dense dark amber with pale khaki head and excellent lacing. Aroma of grapefruit, peach, orange, apple and caramel. Taste of grapefruit, peach, orange, floral hops, pine and caramel. Full body and high/medium carbonation. Wow! This is an amazing IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

6oz pour at Farmhouse Tap and Grill in Burlington. Hazy orange, lacing, thin white head. Nose is big and zesty, grapefruit zest, scallion, lime, orange. Flavor is super juicy, lime, orange, pine sap, tropical fruit, kiwi, kumquat, light sweetness. Full, bitter, spicy finish. Awesome.

Beerman6686 (3870) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 31, 2013
This one poured a bright golden yellow color with a white head. Aroma was of grass, citrusy fruits and light pale grain. Flavor was very nice and crisp citrusy hops, but not that juuicy tropical flavor some of their IPAS have. Dry and refreshing. Good Stuff.

jkwood04 (3408) - Connecticut, USA - JAN 26, 2013
UPDATED: MAR 30, 2014 Sampled at the brewery. Pours cloudy golden. Aroma of a lot of hops. Flavor the same. Incredible IPA. Edit: From a 750ml growler. Pours cloudy golden with a lacy, off-white head. Aroma of a lot of citrusy, fruity, and floral hops plus a nice, light, pale maltiness. Flavor a great blend of all the hops and light malts. Average texture for HF. Great. Edit 2: I had to buy this because Abner ran out. It’s like, I can’t buy the only perfect beer, so I have to buy this incredible IPA instead. The hops are so perfectly balanced.

Growler 750ml. Pours hazy blond with white head. Intense lacing. Aroma is of citrus, acid, fruits. Taste is of citrus, acid, badass fruits. Palate: Perfect body for an IPA. Overall: Very good beer. Intensely fresh.

Draft at VSK night at Blint Tiger back on 11/28/2013 with James, Streets, some others. James saved some of this for us, but it wasn’t very much and may not have been as fresh by the time I arrived, so I will have to rerate it if I ever come across it again. From what I did try, I wasn’t blown away. It had good hop aromas and tasted fairly fruity and fresh, but I didn’t think it was that special. Easy-drinking. Again, will have to revisit.
