12 oz. can from drowland- thanks again, Danny! Split it a few ways at a tasting. Pours a light, somewhat cloudy gold color with a white head that laces the glass. Good West Coast IPA notes on the aroma and flavor- citrus and pine, fresh herbs, lemon and orange, and some pale malts. Light-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a clean mouthfeel. Nice IPA that hit the spot at a cookout.

Fucken A, bug thanks to the Tallahassee Beer Critic for this garbage sauce!
Pours a hazy orange with a white head. Aromas of pine and citrus. Taste is bitter, with a lingering sweetness that sticks around. Pretty solid little beer. Iíd drink it for free again.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the brewpub, JAX. Nice pour, faintly cloudy pale orange, with lively carbonation. Citrus zest, grass, and light malts in the nose. Vibrant palate, semi-dry finish. A bit more tropical fruits in the taste than the nose indicates, and all the elements come together well. Balanced and accomplished, if not particularly memorable.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a nice golden hue with big white foamy head that stains my glass with a ton of lacing. Aromas are close to WC style IPA with lots of citrus up front but then a decent dose of grass and pine hops come through. The flavor is nicely married grapefruit, lemon, grass, pine and some resin during the aftertaste which is a little more bitter than I expected. Just a little heavier than I expected, closer to the body of a DIPA but not overwhelming. Overall, this is an above average WC style IPA from the EC of all places it only really doesnít work for me because the hop profile becomes a little muddled otherwise this is a winner.

On tap at the brewery during RBWG 2013. Pours clear gold with a light, white cream head. Lots of grapefruit and mango in the nose. Medium sweet flavor, some toasty pale malts, juicy orange and grapefruit. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Smooth finish, nice balance. Very good.

Can... Sparkling clear orange ale with a large, pillowy, off-white head. The nose is hoppy, but unusual for a textbook IPA as Iím picking up Belgian wit-like spiciness and German hefeweizen-like esters and phenols. I see no commercial description touting this as a white IPA, so the mysterious aroma must be the result of big-time dry-hopping with unnamed PNW varietals. Medium to full-bodied with gentle carbonation. The flavor and finish are both crisp with spicy hop flavor and bitterness. Dries out a touch and becomes a hint grassy. Can courtesy of burg326!

On tap at V&B. Clear amber pour with a white head. Florally hop aromas. Good body and balance. Pleasant florally hop notes with enough of a caramel malt backbone to make this a very well balanced IPA. Well done..

from can. Pours a nice amber orange with a big pillowy head of white lace. Aroma is sticky malt and big flowery west-coast hops. The malt certainly holds its own in the face of significant hop presence. A well balanced but powerful IPA.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Orange pour with creamy white head and lace. Aroma of caramel malt and citrus/resiny hops. Sweet malt start with a hard bitter finish. Medium body with good carbonation. A pretty good beer but needs a little more malt for me to carry the bitter
