Full bodied, orange hued ale. A variety of toasted and caramel malts create a nice backdrop to the aggressive citrus and floral hop notes.

Refrigerated 12 oz. brow bottle poured into a snifter. Light orange, aroma is light herbal hops, and herbal hops.

Orange-red pour with a light beige head. Aroma is pine hops. Taste is a weaker hop flavor that seems to be more of a pale ale to me. More malty than hops. OK lacing.

The commercial description here doesnít mirror what the 16oz can says about using OATS. I can taste the oats. it rounds out the malt platform, giving it dominance in this IPA. It skews all of the Hop characteristics bar a few. This really should be updated here to include the descriptors about the oats. Who uses oats to balance an IPA? It seems weird to me but yet it is not entirely bad to drink. It is just different.

troyc (2870) - Illinois, USA - FEB 15, 2015
[Bottle] Bright amber color with a quickly receding white head. Nose is of grassy and floral hops. Malty backbone features biscuit and caramel. Astringent hoppiness of grass and pine also make an appearance. Prickly carbonation. Very mediocre.

rumproasts (4189) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - JAN 24, 2015
bottle. Deep golden with one finger head. Generic IPA. Medium body with moderate hops. Average flavor and bitterness. Iíve had a lot worse, but this has no uniqueness at all.

Obfuscate (294) - Minneapolis, - JAN 10, 2015
On the bitter citrus side of IPAís. Not very malty. Does nothing to stand out and isnít very well balanced for me.

nellycale (212) - Caledonia, Minnesota, USA - JAN 8, 2015
From Bottle. Pours an amber/orange hue with a light beige head. Aroma of caramel, candied apple, orange, slight apricot, earthy tones, and resin. Taste of malt sweetness, grapefruit, honey, pine. Bitter dry finish that sticks around for a while. Then turns citrus and sticks around for a little. Medium body with medium carbonation. Overall, not bad for a malty IPA, but easily forgettable and can think of at least 20 other IPAs I would rather drink. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

mulligan1979 (3) - - JAN 2, 2015 does not count
I was drawn to this beer by its packaging and a review on Facebook. Although this is a decent ipa it was nothing special. For the $12 price tag I feel that there are much better ways to spend my money.

kaser (4183) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 16, 2014
Dark orange pour from 12oz bottle. Cloudy and foggy with white head. Orange and apricot aroma. Juicy fruity taste - better than expected

From a tall boy can to a pint glass, a good looking glass of beer indeed. Well it has hops and itís making me happy so it lives up to itís name. Very easy drinking, has a nice taste, and in a can. Serve ice cold.
