3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle... Hazy golden ale with a small, tight, white head. Good retention. The aroma is a medley of grapefruit, tropical fruits and melons. Medium to full-bodied with a lightly creamy mouthfeel and dancing carbonation. The flavor is mainly a blast of fruity and rindy bitterness. Finishes bitter and dry with a lengthy melon and tropical fruit aftertaste. Bottle courtesy of biggsbowler!

Transfer from BA review on 4-1-14-
Poured from bottle into a pint glass
Appearance – The beer pours a quite hazy orange color with a thick and billowy-cloudy white head. The head has a great level of retention, very slowly fading over time to leave a nice level of streaky lace on the sides of the glass.
Smell – The aroma of the beer is big of a sweet citrus smell. The sweet citrus was a nice mix of a sweeter grapefruit aroma as well as a good showing of a tangerine sweetness. Some other lighter bready aromas were there as well with some nice smells of a tropical fruit nature of mango and pineapple mixed within. With some lighter grassy hop aromas rounding out the smell, the overall aroma ends up being quite fruity and sweet.
Taste – The taste begins much unlike the nose would have suggested. It begins very dry with a bit of a biscuit malt flavor mixed with a moderate showing of a grapefruit hop. There is a hint of a tangerine sweetness upfront that very quickly decays. Some light tastes of a grainy wheat flavor develop soon after the initial taste with some more hop flavors of a grassy nature later coming to the tongue. While this occurs so too does the biscuit transition to a more cracker like flavor, with an even drier flavor overall. With more grapefruit hop and some light herbal flavors coming to the tongue at the very end, a very crisp and dry hopped taste is left to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the average side in terms of thickness and creaminess with a carbonation level that is on the average side as well. Both are rather nice for blending the hop flavors with the moderate malt and fruit profile all while complementing well the very crisp taste of the brew.
Overall – A rather tasty, crisp, and dry, but nicely hopped and still somewhat balanced IPA. Overall a quite enjoyable brew.

The Owl Farm, Brooklyn tap: Pours misty golden with a white head. Aroma is citrus, earth, flowers, and pine. Taste is good. Quite good. Very good. Hops are powerful, but they are certainly not too bitter. Very flavorful. Powerful aftertaste. A little bit piercing. Dangerously well-balanced.

Bottle fresh from the brewery (thanks dlovell2), bottled two weeks ago. Hazy golden with dense white head. Aroma of grapefruit, scallions, fruits. Grapefruit juicy hop flavors. Malt feel is not thin or watery, light roast but perfectly malted to balance the hops. Long lingering tropical finish. I had hight expectations and this beverage met/exceeded them.
