Draft at pj’s. Pours hazy copper with a medium sized white head. The aroma has huge citrus, grapefruit, orange. The taste is sweet orange juice, little bitterness, light resin.

Drove out to Laurelwood to try this one on tap. Pours bright gold; aroma is dank with some cat pee, tropical fruit, and pine. Flavor is fruity sweet with a nice malt balance and a clean, piney bitter finish. Dense mouthfeel. Very good.

Bottle courtesy of Andrew. Pours an amber with white lacing. Aroma is pungent pine resin, dank herb and orange pith. Mouthfeel is medium with similar bitter pine and grapefruit, light malt character and some ash. Would LOVE to try this on draft.

Beautiful IPA, right up there with some of the best pacific northwest IPAs, lovely dry bitterness, would thoroughly recommend to any hop heads!

Fresh from a bottle purchased in Olympia (bottled 6/10/14, drank 6/31/14). I’m just going to repeat OldGrowth’s rating right before mine, because it seems perfect for this beer: "Good aroma sweet. Caramel, pine, grapefruit. Clean browNish orange color good head and lace. Bittersweet flavor. Medium body, creamy mouthfeel. Bitter dry finish. Very nice." I’d only add that the aroma was a bit tame, and that the bitter hop taste was very clean and well-balanced with the caramel.

At local. Philly airport terminal F. Good aroma sweet. Caramel, pine, grapefruit. Clean browNish orange color good head and lace. Bittersweet flavor. Medium body, creamy mouthfeel. Bitter dry finish. Very nice. I should of stuck with local beer. But couldn’t pass this up. Flavor my favorite part. But whole thing is good. Score one while traveling.

Poured from a 12 ounce bottle. I am surprised, the bottling date is 5 months ago and this is still brite and crisp. No oxidized hops. Big citrusy and pine hop notes throughout, the malts are bready and slightly sweet. This is a solid IPA.

Bottle thanks to Brian! Pours crystal clear orange, medium off-white head, dissipates slowly, nice lacing. Aroma of caramel and pine is pretty standard for an IPA that has lost its distinctiveness due to age. Flavor is light sweet, light bitter, floral, pine, not harsh. Medium body. After it was gone I noticed a 4/24/14 date on the bottle. Certainly not old by any means, but I am guessing this one needs to be super fresh to be appreciated.

It has a very distinct IPA flavor. Like nothing I’ve had before. Good alcohol content as well.

On tap at Bullies in Philly. Nicely down. Has lots of hops in the aroma and flavor over a sweet malt base.
