3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the brewpub in Fayetteville, AR. Pours a clear, copper-gold colored body with a finger-width, creamy and frothy, beige head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is grapefruit citruses with some pines, grass, and a light floral note. A bit of a caramel sweetness with touches of bread and a few resins as well. Flavor is similar. Bigger grapefruit citruses with a light piney resin and grass up front before a light caramel sweetness and touch of breadiness comes in. A few floral notes towards the end and a trace of toast as this finishes dry and moderately bitter before leaving a lengthy aftertaste. Medium body and a moderate carbonation. Overall, a pretty solid IPA. Nothing special, but well hopped and nicely balanced to keep this enjoyable. Nice beer.

Draft at the source. Hazy amber color, thick beige head with good retention, solid lacing. Aroma og grass and light pine. Taste starts as sweet fruit, then bitter pine resin. Decent. Could use more aroma hops, imho.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Thanks a lot to my brother for bringing me a growler of this brew. The body is a pretty dark gold and orange color with a slightly off white thin head that sticks around. The aroma is classic grapefruit with some hints of fall leaves and caramel. The taste is lightly pine with some fresh cut wood. There is also some light hints of walnuts. A decent IPA that would be good for a session.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On draft at the pub with Brett and Hannah. A decent yet not overwhelming (and fairly ho hum) take on the style. Pours a hazy amber color, normal head, decent lacing showing (not great for the style, though). The aroma was light pine hops, some caramel. The flavor starts with some caramel and transitions to some citrus and pine hops, not overwhelming, and certainly less hoppy than many an IPA. Mouthfeel was probably the best part, coming off as fairly well attenuated and clean (maybe due instead to somewhat of a dry effect?).
