Poured from a bottle. Pours a cloudy deep amber with a thin white ring and a lot of residue suspended in the body. Sweet citrus and light pine aroma. Light syrupy texture. Juicy citrus bomb with a variety of fruit flavors. Medium bitterness and a slightly dry finish. Interesting but not my favorite.

Surprised I had never rated this, but I recently had a killer batch at City Tap House in DC. 16oz pint pours a lightly hazy gold with some lacing, white head. Nose was a knock out, guava and mango, malt, grass, tangerine, light pine, light soap. Everything is well blended and inviting. Flavor hits with the fruit sweetness, guava, mango, light melon, orange, tangerine, some starfruit, grass, light soap. Dry finish and scary drinkable at 7.5%. A classic.

On tap at Atrium Grille and Bar at the Embassy Suites in Syracuse - This is one beautiful IPA. Pours slightly hazy light golden with a lasting, clingy-as-all-get-out finger of white foam that laces every sip to the bottom. Aroma is citrus all the way, with just a bit of tropical fruit (mango?) to take it into one of the top beers I’ve smelled. Flavor is similar, with citrus blast dominating up front, a nice malt backbone mid-sip, and just slightly dry on the finish with some lingering grapefruit. Very good stuff

Bottle via Secret Santa 2015, thank you. Pours a thick honey color with a finger of creamy off-white head. Aroma is sweet and citrus filled, some caramel malt, and a little dry floral hops. Tastes bitter, heavy in the dry dirty floral hop department. Light citrus sweetness, but barely noticeable. This is all about hops flavor. Potent.

I honestly don’t understand the outstanding ratings on this IPA. It is a good, but not great citrus-forward IPA. Some tropical notes. Pours hazy amber with plenty of lacing. Nose has bug bright lemony notes.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz bottle I got as an extra in a trade from some time ago. The pour is a foggy golden orange, with a decent cap of white head and a pretty solid lace. The aroma is very malty. There is a light, sweet floral hop up front to go with some tropical fruits. The hop presence is dank and wet. The malts really come into their own and take over on the back end, keeping a little fruitiness, but for the most part, it's just sweet. The flavor is bitter up front, but then it moves through a sweet malty mess. It's bitterly sweet, and the hop goes away. The fruit is just a hint. The mouth feel is thick and syrupy with a soft carbonation and a lingeringly sweet finish. This is not that great of a beer

Bottle@ The Anderson’s / Columbus OH --- Aroma of malt and hops. nice. Cloudy medium orange amber, fluffy white head, streaks of lace. Taste is clear malt that adds fizz and citrus hops on the swallow. Everything drifts smoothly through a satisfying finish. Weird label, but good brew.
