A-Hazy golden color S-Pine, citrus, and nice toasted malt T-The pine/citrus hop burst gets you right away...pow... then a nice malt backbone.. finishes a bit dry and with little aftertaste. Nice balance and hop forward. M-Medium body...carbination was spot on. D-This is an enjoyable IPA. Not too hop foward as some of the others out there...but very drinkable with a nice body. I am glad I have five more of these to enjoy.This is an enjoyable beer. Serving type: bottle

12 oz bottle poured into Shaker. Pours a clear gold with a medium off white head that disappears quickly. Medium carbonation. First taste has the small bitter taste of grapefruit that suddenly changes to hops. Leaves the hoppy tingle on the back of your tongue. Very standard IPA - tasty but doesn’t scream out in flavor. I’d drink more of it.

Pours an unclear medium orange amber. Small soapy white head. Aroma is grassy, soft pine, semi sweet citrus. Flavor follows. Quite hoppy. Grapefruit rind stands out. Solid bitterness. Lighter medium body. Doesn’t have a lot going exactly. Pretty good drinkability. I’d have another.

On tap at The Old Fashioned in Madison. Yellow with a decent white head. Aroma is of heavy honey, caramel, and light floral. Taste is of honey, light citrus, cream soda, and a light bitterness.

Noticed the bottle date after getting home...6 months old. One word "butterscotch". It might be good fresh but I know it’s not now. Check the date.

kaser (2503) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 5, 2013
Golden pour with a lot of white head. Wheaty aroma, earthy. Very hoppy beer. Pretty good one. Had this in Madison, WI at the Old Fasioned Tavern, poured from draft part of a flight.

beerbill (3324) - Laurel, New York, USA - JUL 30, 2013
12 oz. bottle that I picked up in Wisconsin on my recent road trip to Yellowstone. Pours a lighly hazed golden amber with a moderate tan head that lasted through the first quarter of the glass and left a partial layer of foam with each sip. Very pleasant aroma of fresh oranges. Nice citrus freshness and a bit of a change of pace from the grapefruit found in most IPA’s. The flavor is caramel and malt up front followed by some mild orange citrus bitterness. Medium bodied.

Tap. Gold pour with white head. Smells of malt and hops. Nice hope flavor with a smooth finish. Good pale ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle from Brian, golden color, kind of a skunky spicy pine aroma. Taste is similar, almost some old resinous hops, not good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
