Keg @ Hog Haus. Light amber pour with a small head. Caramel and apple. Pretty anonymous aroma. Flavor is similar. Some earthy compost accents and caramel. Not good.

[Tap] Bright amber color is accented by a small white foam head. Floral hops mingle with citrus in the aroma. The taste includes more of a light resinous pine flavor. Overall, the hoppiness here is fleeting and the bitterness ends abruptly. Odd lemon drop flavors in the finish. Tasting notes from 11/2011.

Pours a hazy golden. Creamy persistent head. Aroma of grapefruit. Very nice. Medium bodied and finishes dry. By far their best beer.

Pawola22 (3262) - Woodridge, Illinois, USA - NOV 14, 2012
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.

(Draught) Pours a clear orange body with a medium off-white head. Aroma of grapefruit, grass, pine, and resin. Flavor of pine, grass, citrus, and caramel with a dry, bitter earthy finish.

Travlr (9998) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - JUL 2, 2012
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.

Orange pour with white frothy white head and lace. Sweet caramel malt, resiny hops, and bready aroma. Sweet caramel malt a nice resiny finish. A tad thin on the ibuís for an ipa but pretty nice. Medium bodied with good carbonation.

LilBeerDoctor (3422) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 14, 2012
On tap at the brewpub. Pours a clear amber orange with a thick white head. Aroma of pale caramel malt, light fruits. Flavor of bready pale malt and floral hops upfront with some sharp bitterness in the finish. Ok. Itís drinkable anyway. 6/4/7/4/13 (3.4/5)

legion242 (2162) - Richardson, Texas, USA - NOV 16, 2010
Pale copper in color with a sticky head that had good retention. Thin hops and thin palate Not the least bit exciting.

kseecs16 (1193) - Naperville, Illinois, USA - DEC 17, 2009
Draught. Pours a copper amber with a thin soapy off-white head that leaves full sheets of lacing down the glass. Aroma is grapefruit and pine. Flavor is dry piney hops up front that is not extraordinarily bitter but pleasant, a nice mild sweet body and with a nice floral aftertaste. Medium bodied.
