Tap from Fette Sau in Williamsburg. Floral aroma, piney hops, plenty of orange peel, hint of spice. Thought this was delicious.

GIJOE (1082) - North Berwick, Maine, USA - MAR 21, 2016
Pours an orangy amber with a thin white head that fades quickly. Nose is hoppy citrus. Taste is moderately bitter with some piney aftertaste. Decent brew. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draught at Sweet Grass Grill, 12/27/15
Looks a lot like the pint pictured. Especially the haziness and lack of head.
It was interesting to try this after having the Shuggie Soulbender, since they are both NSauvin-hopped IPAs around the same abv and from the same region.
This one fared much worse, however, having far less aromatics and being bogged down in the flavor by too much bitterness and some sugary, underfermented malt notes. Had to choke down the last third of the beer, as it’s just too unbalanced and quite monotonous in the flavor; lime zest, bitter orange and apple-like bittersweetness.

jflopsu (1197) - New Jersey, USA - OCT 4, 2014
Pours a clear gold. Has a floral hop and grain aroma. Has a great floral and citrus hop taste with some spices and grains. A bitter hop aftertaste.

colinize (317) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JAN 23, 2013
On tap at Top Hops. Pours slightly dark gold. Head dissipates quickly but leaves great lacing down the glass. Subtle floral hop aroma. Great citrus, spicy hop flavor. Really tasty. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

bmerz (741) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - JUL 19, 2012
UPDATED: MAY 23, 2013 Draught. Cloudy yellow with some lace. A fairly dusty pith orange fruit aroma and aroma dominates a nice lighter body drinkable ipa. One of my faves locally for an ipa.

beerbill (3605) - Laurel, New York, USA - MAY 6, 2012
On draught. Pours a hazy gold with a moderate white head. Pleasant aroma of grapefruit with some pine notes as well. The flavor is light malt with a solid dose of grapefruit and just a little bit of pine. Moderate-strong bitterness at the finish. Medium bodied. No problems.

italarican (1543) - Winston-Salem, North Carolina, USA - AUG 6, 2011
Tap at a modern Mexican restaurant in Astoria. Pours bronze with a rocky white head. Aroma has a strong floral hops presence. Flavor has the same floral goodness with some honey. Moderately strong bite with lots of flowers, perfume, and honey. This was perfect with the duck and pollack tacos I had with it.
