Bottle shared by mtjoseph. Pour is very hazy straw color with a small white head. Big orange citrus aroma with floral hops present, too. Flavor is citrus, slightly floral, and plenty of malt sweetness. In comparison to other ipas this has very little bitterness to it.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Very floral and grapefruity throughout, with a citrusy malt body leading into a medium finish of hops. Pleasant and refreshing, disguising the rather high ABV well and showing good sessionability.

12oz bottle shared with Mikelovesbeer. I thought it was good, but nothing too outstanding. Hoppy aroma with a good malt backing. Darkish brown tints with a gold center. Fluffy foam head. Bitter bite with a nice finish.

Orange with some white head. Very strong hoppy aroma, lots of citrus, floral, and some grassy/herby notes. Medium bodied, fairly bitter but not overwhelming. Nice finish with a lingering hop taste. A very solid, enjoyable IPA.

Oh wow. From bottle. This is the one I’ve been waiting for in the line-up. A traditional west coast style IPA, full of citrus and pine, no real malt, nice bitterness, quaffable. Delicious. A decent session IPA if there is such a thing.

12oz bottle. Pours clear and copper with a small white head. Strong citrus aroma. Smells like a west coast citrus IPA. Taste is much of the same. Very little malt, which I love. This one is fantastic.

Bottle at Teresa’s Next Door. Pours a hazy orangey copper. Fluffy head. Nose is fresh and a it dank. Herbal notes, orange blossoms light citrus. Nice bitterness and more citrusy floral notes in the taste. East coast level of maltiness but pretty excellent IPA.

Sampled at GABF 2010. Hazy light orange pour with white head. Aroma of flowers, citrus, toasted grains. Lots of flowery earthy hops in the flavor, balanced with toffee and toasted malt. Good carbonation. Dry, hoppy finish. Pretty nice beer.
