Crystal clear yellow-gold color, clingy white lace. Heavy on the earthy, roasted hops. It truly is a hopfest. A little citrusy, some pine and spice balance out this IPA. I love the hop content on this one and hops aren’t even my biggest thing, even when it comes to an IPA.

MadRobin (1999) - Silver Spring, USA - JUN 18, 2014
On tap 4 oz. taste at Iron Hill in West Chester, PA. Bright straw-yellow with a creamy off-white head and exceptionally good lacing. Aroma of grapefruit, pineapple, tropical fruit, caramel and orange. Taste of citrus, caramel, pineapple and mild tropical fruit. Neither intensely bitter nor malty, but instead a gentler, well-balanced IPA with plenty of flavor. Medium/full body and low/medium carbonization with a soft, smooth mouthfeel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

reggiedunlop (3110) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 9, 2014
Pours gold with a creamy medium white head...heavy lacing. Aroma has mild pine and hoppy spice. Flavor follows suit...adds a layer of light grapefruit...piney but not resinous...clean. Mouthfeel is light/medium and silky with a dry piney bitter finish.

On tap at Iron Hill Chestnut Hill. Pours a nice golden color with a good white head and some lacing on the way down. The nose is really quite nice with plenty of citrus character -- some lemon and orange rind to go along with some pine and a bit of dankness. Flavor continues down the same path. Really nice citrus and pine combination. Strong hop flavor. Bitter dry finish after a light-medium body. Really excellent stuff. Good enough for me to grab a growler right away.
