blipp (6200) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - FEB 4, 2014
Draft at Jersey City Beer Garden. Pours amber red with an off white head. Grassy and lightly fruity hops, lighter tropical fruity notes, and lightly sweet malts. Balanced and drinkable. Quite good.

tom10101 (2965) - Quebec, CANADA - FEB 3, 2014
Bottle (12 oz). Clear golden/amber with a small white head and little lacing. Aroma is floral with perfume, malt, light alcohol and resinous notes. Taste is slightly sweet with floral notes, perfume, resinous notes, light bitterness and warming from the alcohol. Medium body. Moderate carbonation. Slightly sticky mouthfeel. Average IPA. Itís supposed to be really fresh, but itís drinking like an old IPA. A tad boring and not that drinkable for the style. Decent.

On tap at Cloverleaf. Pours a hazy golden orange with thick white foam head. Aroma of grapefruit, citrus, and pine. Sweet citrusy caramel taste with nice hop hit. Solid IPA.

UPDATED: MAR 17, 2014 pours hazy golden amber with a finger of white thick sticky head Smells of pine, hops, resin, honey and tropical fruit. Taste is has a earthy tropical, hoppy feel, notes of resin and a nice malt balance that smooths out medium body light carbonation.

Ready4Aheady (38) - New York, USA - JAN 28, 2014
UPDATED: JUN 23, 2014 This is one fine readily avail, IPA-- citrus, hops, pine, mild-moderate bitter finish to balance the fruit and hops--- nose is pine and cat piss (like a good sauvignon blanc), taste is light tropical fruit and pine with a flinty-gun-metal- finish...

eelbasher (285) - New Jersey, USA - JAN 28, 2014
Tap. Hazy orange golden pour with a sticky white head. Aromas of tropical fruit, orange zest, caramel malts, and a touch of pine. Flavor is sticky and cloying. Heavy tropical fruit mixed with hot garbage. Unsettling to the stomach and I didnít want any more. Huge astringency in the finish and overly bitter. Somewhat watery also. Meh

WillRunForBeer (731) - Massachusetts, USA - JAN 27, 2014
Bottle. Pours clear copper with visible carb and a big sticky white head that falls quickly, leaving its mark on the glass. Aroma is pretty fruity, lemon, pineapple, grapefruit and a touch of pine. Taste is pale and caramel malt backbone with a grapefruit bitterness. Thereís a little orange sweetness in there too.

Scrapersnbeer (1490) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 27, 2014
I am intrigued by this beer boasting a new breed of hops, and made by a m-alt friendly brewer no less. Classic meaty grapefruit and sappy pine aroma. Glowing clear orange, all clear but for tiny suspension. By comparison the flavor is mellow: a long dry bitter citrus with a solid malty contrast. Slick body, not a palate slasher like some aggressive IPAs. Bottled 1-13-14, as fresh as can be.
