pours a gold copper with a bubbly off white head. citrus aroma. Fairly bitter right from the get go. Not much citrus comes through in the palate. long bitter finish. Not bad.

patrick767 (3672) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - JAN 17, 2015
bottle - Pours clear gold with a one finger white head. It smells mostly of citrus hops and some mild bready malt. It’s moderately bitter, on the light side of bitterness for an IPA, with some citrus character. Medium bodied and decent, but below average for the style.

Crystal clear, golden pour with a white head. The aroma is flowery and a little herbal. It has a medium body with oily texture and lively carbonation. The taste is moderately bitter with a slightly dry finish.

Elwood (3336) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - NOV 24, 2014
Serving: 12 oz. bottle from Total Wine Sterling. Nice gold pour with a decent off white head. Dull citrus notes in the nose. A little biscuit, malt, and citrus on the palate. Light to medium body. This one needs a bigger boost of hops.

phaleslu (6905) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 23, 2014
12 oz. bottle from The Party Source. Pours a totally clear gold with a small white head. The aroma brings some hop bitterness - slightly floral and citrusy - but the rest of this has a big sweet corn note, with other sweet malts, grass, and straw. Light-medium bodied, with moderate to medium carbonation and a malty mouthfeel. Not really the kind of IPA I like.

lbianchi66 (39) - FRANCE - NOV 20, 2014
Robe blonde, légèrement cuivrée. La mousse ne tien pas. Arômes du cascade très présents avec des saveurs dominantes d’agrumes. L’équilibre amertume/arômes est plutôt réussi. Malheureusement, elle est courte en bouche. Légèrement âpre. Arrière goût de feijoa et de pêche. Une IPA honnête, mais j’ai connu bien mieux.

Foxbush (1341) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - NOV 11, 2014
12 oz bottle The IPA poured a cloudy light amber with small off white head and no lacing. Citrus greets your pose and maybe some pine resin. The ale had a medium body with soft carbonation. The flavor is dominated by what taste like drinking green pine cones. There is a faint faint metallic touch that is noticed. Finish has a bitterness in the upper mouth.

Bottle pour. Shiney clear, light amber color. Palate is smooth and thin ith a mild bitter flavor. It has a dry after taste.

rondphoto (2363) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - OCT 29, 2014
bottle @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Clear medium amber color, fluffy 1" white head, a few dots of lace. Taste is light malt that moves to light hops in the finish. An "excuse me" beer, with minimal flavor, not enough to be bad or good.
