OKplus (787) - Oklahoma, USA - FEB 18, 2013
A - Pours an orange amber color. 2 finger frothy head that sink slowly. S - Citrus hops-grapefruit rind, slight lemon, and a tiny bit of pine. A subtle caramel malt. T - Huge grapefruit! It’s like taking a huge bite of a sweetened muted grapefruit. A slight caramel malt comes through to back up the subdued grape-fruity hops. Mouthfeel is medium to heavy. M - Medium body. This is an interesting IPA. Lots of sweet grapefruit. No harsh bitterness. Very mellow. Low hop bitterness. The huge citrus profile makes me very happy. It’s not sharp but very softened. I’m a sucker for big citrus hops. The dullness doesn’t take away from the drinkability. It’s very drinkable. Serving type: bottle 09-12-2010

Draft @ Millertime in MKE. Nice hoppy aroma. Light copper colored. Smooth bitter flavor, a little floral. Medium bodied. Middle of the road IPA, but good.

sebletitje (6582) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JUL 6, 2014
Bouteille 355ml de et partagée avec Tderoeck. BB 03/26/2014. Léger orangé, fin blanc cassé. Arôme est légèrement houblonné, fruité d’agrumes moyen, grains en rétro nasal avec une petite note de melon? Palais est houblonné sur un fond malté avec encore une foins un fruité rappelant le melon, possible Galaxy? Léger profil épicé arrive en fin de bouche, malt cara et pâle et pointe de résineux. OK mais manquant de convaincre.

rondphoto (1777) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - JUL 3, 2014
bottle @ John’s Grocery / Iowa City IA --- Hazy dark amber with a frothy white head that reduces to a cover, sheets of lace. Taste is a beautiful balance between malt and citrus. Both are there to start, and both are there to finish, although malt lingers the longest. A remarkable mild IPA, highly recommended.

Tastes like an IPA, but its a lighter one with a soft aftertaste instead of the usual bitterness.

Served on tap in a pint Appearance – The beer is served a lightly hazed golden orange color with a one finger head of billowy white foam. The head fades rather quickly leaving foamy rings of lace on the sides of the glass. Smell – The aroma of the beer is quite heavy of a citrus hop smell of grapefruit and pine. Along with the hoppy smells comes some more malty aromas with both a bready and light caramel aroma. A of a tangerine smell mixes in with the rest, creating a sweeter smell overall. Taste – The taste is much drier than anticipated from the nose. It begins with a more cracker like flavor with a bit of a caramel sweetness. Right from the start there is a decent sum of a grapefruit hop that grows stronger as the flavor moves onto the end. Along with the grapefruit growing stronger, some pine hop and a bit of herbal hop work their way onto the tongue. The caramel that was present upfront, fades away all while the hops increase, and in the end the combination of flavors leaves a drier and rather resinous bitter flavor to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the thicker and creamier side with a carbonation level that is on the higher side. The thicker body really accentuates the hop flavors nicely as the higher carbonation is nice for the cracker flavors creating a some-what crisp feel. Overall – A drier and crisper IPA with a decently bitter hop bite. A fairly nice drinker.

On tap at Brunzies. Mild fruity hop aroma, some apricot and peach. Dark amber-copper hazy with thin foamy white head. Medium body with medium-high carbonation. Medium sweet malt notes. Nice flavorful hop profile with apricot and other fruity notes. Finish is smooth and hoppy with sweet lingering after.
