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 itís just too unbalanced and quite monotonous in the flavor; lime zest, bitter orange and apple-like bittersweetness.

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

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.

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 (1527) - 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.

Cask at Mugs Alehouse, Brooklyn NY on 20th July 2011. Hazy gold with thin lacing film. Fruity, hoppy yeasty aroma, then plenty of grapefruit in mouth, smoothish mouthfeel and bitter grapefruit finish. Good fairly easy drinking American IPA.

Hazy yellow golden colour with small white head. Malty grainy aroma with citrusy hops and mild bitterness. Flavour is grainy malty and dry hoppy. Bitter fruity aftertaste. Not bad.
