PhillyCraft (3316) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 27, 2012
UPDATED: APR 4, 2013 Fresh Bottles. Pour was a vibrant hazy copper golden color. Decent lacing and white head. Tropical notes of pineapple, grapefruit, tons of centennial. The malts balanced out the hops well. Earthy. Rerate, orange juice aroma, so juicy and fresh. One of the best ipas out there.

changeup45 (1717) - Mount Dora, Florida, USA - MAR 20, 2012
UPDATED: JAN 1, 2014 Bottle from BeerPilgrim11. A dirty gold color with a moderate off-white head. The aroma has a strong floral and citrus scent, with a little pine, and some caramel too. This is a flat out a tasty IPA. Bright and citrusy; lots of tropical fruit flavors. That of mango, pineapple, and oranges. Some sticky pine notes mix in. This has a solid caramel malt backbone without being too thick which allows the hops to be showcased. A lengthy dry bitterness finishes this off. Nice stuff. And I would have never heard of this, let alone tried it, if not for a generous trader. Thanks!

DocLock (7915) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 15, 2012
Bottle. Pours hazy dark straw with off-white head. Nose is tropical citrus, resiny piney hops, caramel malt. Tastes rich, with a nice piney peppery hop bill matched by a big caramel malt bill. Gets more tangeriney as it warms.

KickInChalice (860) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 7, 2012
From notes. First reviewed 8/22/2011. Poured from a 500 mL bottle into a tulip. Lunch pours a murky brown color with bright golden edges. Kind of a different, darker look than I am used to seeing for an IPA. A nice rocky, foamy off-white head forms on top and leaves some nice lace on the glass. The aroma is very hoppy and floral with some grapefruit and pineapple as well. Light biscuity malt starts off the flavor with a touch of sweetness, then a fairly flat grapefruit and pineapple hoppiness through the end. The finish has a light, lingering bitterness. This has a light to medium body, with carbonation tilted toward the creamy side while retaining its bubbly nature. A resiny finish. Throw a couple of hop pellets into any beer and I will most likely enjoy it at least a little bit. That said, this really did not blow me away as anything spectacular. Kind of an IPA with an even keel attitude.

radagast83 (4748) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - MAR 3, 2012
Poured a hazy light copper color with a tiny white head. Aroma was pine, grapefruit, floral notes. Flavor was a piney, resin with grapefruit and grassy notes that permeate my tongue.

arkurzynski (1543) - Combined Locks, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 23, 2012
Bottle thanks to sanborn13. Hazy amber with copious white head. Fresh, floral citrus and grapefruit and a little caramel malt. Refined citrus and grapefruit bitterness with some toasted malt and caramel sweetness. Residual citrus and biscuit malt. A little thin. Again, re-occurring theme with MBC beers...well-made, quality.

drunkenpolack (319) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - FEB 23, 2012
Lunch pours a hazy copper color with a small white head. Very little retention but a ton of lacing throughout the glass. When put up to the nose you’ll get mostly a grassy smell with some citrus and grapefruit but what stood out the most was lemon zest. It rose above everything else here. Upon first sip of this beer I was highly disappointed. But I let it sit for a while and as it warmed up, more and more taste came out. In the end I enjoyed it. Lemon once again rules the taste. Next grassy notes come in followed by undertones of citrus, spice, and caramel. Bitterness hits all the way through but it’s not over bitter. Mouthfeel is creamy and medium bodied. Goes down nice.

VikingHammer (506) - Lynnfield, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 23, 2012
Pours copper with a small, long lasting white head. Aromas of grapefruit, fresh cut grass and lemon. Bitter to sweet. Clean finish. Very drinkable. The bitterness is balance by just the right amount of malt. Very nice ipa.
