Pours a cloudy golden colour with small ring of off white head shortly after pour. Aroma has a pleasingly floral hop note with an evident malt backing. Taste is potent floral hops, some sweetness, cereal malt note but ultimately very balanced. Finish is very satisfying.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Keg @ Mellow Mushroom, DC. Hazy deep gold pour with a large, creamy white head. Definitely an attractive beer. Pine cone and a strawberry parfait aroma. Big, sweet summer fruits. Dirty, floral bitter flavor. Spring bloom, grass. A bit of balancing caramel. Medium body, a touch sticky. Pretty active carbonation. Satisfying stuff.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at The Alehouse, Amesbury, MA. Orange color with an amber hue. Some dismissing head that left weak lace in its wake. Aroma is grapefruit, candied mangos and floral hops.
Flavor starts with bright tropical fruit notes: peaches, mangos and rounded off with some lasting grassy and floral hints. The grassy / floral notes are what I get lingering in the finish for a nice amount of time. The IPA is balance with the correct level of caramel/ toffee malt traits. The body is on the lighter side of medium and has a crisp refreshing character. Real tasty.

Sampled at DLD 2014. It poured an orange color with a white head. The aroma was of caramel malt dominated with pine grapefruit and tangerine. The taste was of juicy hop flavors with grapefruits, orange zest, flowers and a medium body with a lingering bitter hop finish. Nicely done.

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass a hazy yellow orange with a ever so slight beige to white head.
Aroma is floral citrus nice!
Flavor is outstanding. High citrus and fruity upfront with a mellow bitter finish. Certainly a top IPA. A well balanced beaut.

Pours a light orange. Has a strong floral hop aroma. Taste is strong with floral hop, with some citrus taste. A light bitter hop aftertaste, but not overwhelming.
