Big fan. Bottle into pint glass. Super-fragrant, as the name may suggest. Crisp and hoppy. Danky and fresh finish. Great bang for the buck. Nothing but positives here!

A damn good IPA. A nice floral hoppy aroma. And a hoppy, but balanced flavor. One of the best IPAs I’ve had.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Presentation: It was poured from a brown 12oz bottle into a pint glass. The label has a best before date but no abv%.
Appearance: The body has a heavy haze with a warm orange amber glow. There is some nice visible carbonation which helps support a two finger tall, off white foam head. This head is very thick and clingy. It sticks all over the glass and leaves tons of thick lace patterns behind.
Smell: This one has lots of beautiful big juicy and fruity hops right up front in the nose. Just under the hops there is a sweet candy like maltiness for backup.
Taste/Palate: Right up front there is a ton of deep juicy hops sweetened by deep rich bready malts. Inside of this I get notes of mixed citrus rind, orange, lemon and heavy grapefruit as well as dried apricot and sweetened canned peaches. The hop bitterness slowly builds towards the finish with herbal leafy notes coming into the mix. It finishes with a deep dank hop presence that lingers on with solid bitterness. The plate has a very firm and smooth feel with mild carbonation.
Notes: This American IPA is very well made and brings all the hop power and bitterness of a Double or Imperial IPA.

The appearance has a nice yellow cloudy hue to it. The nose comes with a decent earthy smell with a citrus hint that comes from a hoppy beer. The taste is the best part, it is a nice combination of the citrus, hoppy taste that tends to linger on for a small while. The feel of it afterwards it is still citrus flavored but clean, crisp with a nice bite that sticks around. As most IPAs burn your taste buds out right away, this beer has that bite but it is not over powering and you can still mildly taste things afterwards. Overall, a great beer from a brewer that I think is hit or miss with their selection...this one definitely hits, plus it helps that it is fresh and the brewery is less than 50 miles away.

Not a bad beer. Poured from a 12oz bottle into a glass. Comes out golden in color with a little head. Aroma is of citrus and hints of flowers. Taste is the same. It is a very solid IPA. Hoping to have it again soon.

Bottle pours amber with nice, frothy tan head that provides nice lacing on my IPA glass from Stone. Flowery aroma. Flavors of pine, grapefruit, and orange with a great, biting hop finish.

12 oz. bottle served in a Firestone Walker tulip. Best before May. Big thanks to cosmicevan and iadler for sending some bottles my way.
A: Pours a clear orange color with a white head forming on the pour. It recedes slow to a thick cap that leaves some sticky sheets of lace behind. Looks great.
S: Nice orange citrus. Some sweet jammy notes with some a pale cracker malt backbone.
T: Same citrus orange with a little orange peal. Nice cracker malt backbone with a mild hint of leafy hop bitterness.
M: Medium to light bodied with a medium carbonation level. Small hint of bitterness on the finish.
O: This a really nice beer. At 7.50% it doesn’t get into that threshold of being to boozy to have more than one which is great. Definitely glad I have another bottle in the fridge!
