Pours a clear golden yellow from the bottle with fluffy white head that leaves good lace. Aroma of catty resinous citrus hops, hint of grapefruit and vanilla, peach and mango. Taste follows, hop forward but very light on the bitterness, clean and easy. Good carbonation, awesome stuff.

4 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Consumed 37 days after the date on the bottle. Hazy yellow with an inch of frothy cream-colored head. Moderate rate of decay. Pineapple and passion fruit hit my nose as soon as I poured from a foot away. Pineapple, guava, passion fruit, bit of sweet corn, some floral and orange. Body is medium-light, oily, quite dry. Creamy, moderate carbonation, no burn. Flavor is sweet orange, herbs and grass, light clean bitterness that does not linger, hay. Not quite as intense as the aroma. A great IPA with an outstanding aroma that is quite dry and somewhat light. Maybe needs a bit more in the flavor to make it the best among IPA’s.

Pour is lightly hazed peachy yellow with a tight white head. Nose has a nice grain bill, bread crust and light dough. Hops are strong behind with a nice citrus / tropical note aroma. Taste follows suit, doughy malt with some toasted grains and a tropical hop punch behind. Extremely low bitterness making it very drinkable. Body is light and airy, a bit prickly in the finish with softer carbonation.

Aroma is citrusy, tangerine notes, mild grassiness, mild floral, piney scent.Taste is a blast of hop character whose bitterness evolves to define this beer, a bold bitterness following a crisp, floral,resinous, citrusy sweetness. Not unbalanced, and extremely drinkable

The aroma and flavor have tropical fruits, citrus, citrus peel, pale, bready malt, lightly toasted, moderate bitterness, bright refreshing fruity hops, very solid IPA. The APA and IPAs coming from these guys are solid.

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.
