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

Pours a dark mahogany, rust color, with generous carbonation & head. Hoppy, citrus aromas & flavors. Mild hop bitterness. Very smooth & tasty.

pours a beautiful burnt orange with minimal white head. Not a strong aroma, though does have a hint of caramel, and just simply smells hoppy. First sip left a strong bitter aftertaste, but quickly became less bitter.

UPDATED: NOV 30, 2013 Citrus stands out but otherwise a basic, slightly above average IPA. Its very drinkable and friendly to the average beer drinker.

jgb9348 (4486) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - OCT 12, 2012
Slightly hazy amber coloured body with a copper glow and a super thick, seven centimetre tall tan head that stays very soapy. Aroma of hop pellets with some caramel, malt, light citrus and some herbal hops. Medium-bodied; Assertive grassy and herbal hop flavours, coming from pellets, with a slightly malt kick and a bit of earthiness on the tail end. Aftertaste is relatively mild with some malt, a bit of caramel and a glow of the hops noticeable. Overall, a pretty sub-par beer with some light hop notes and more malt and cardboardie flavours with no complexity and the hops coming from pellets instead of whole flowers. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Three Cellars in Franklin, Wisconsin on 05-September-2012 for US$1.99 sampled at home in Washington on 12-October-2012.

UPDATED: OCT 24, 2012 It sure is an IPA, but I don’t know what else to say about it. Maybe more malt flavor than most, and a nice transition to the hops.

A solid go-to IPA. Nice balance of malts and hops with a slight bite. Definitely a session IPA.

Bottle. Slightly hazy reddish brown with a big creamy head and a sweet, resiny aroma. Doughy malt taste with a floral hop bitterness. Medium bodied and a bit slick on the palate with a very light carbonation. Short, bitter finish that wraps this one up nicely. Very good.

Ratman197 (9014) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - SEP 23, 2012
Bottle poured aclear orange amber with a lasting creamy amber head. Aromas of bread, earthiness and light citrus. Palate was light bodied and crisp with a smooth finish. Flavors of bread and earthiness with a smooth earthy finish.

On tap at the brewery. Pleasant floral aroma. Medium bitterness from the hops and a good hop flavor. The bitterness does not linger though like some IPAs. Tastes better on tap than from a bottle. The best brewery tour we have been on.

Strykzone (4475) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - AUG 6, 2012
12 ounce bottle bought near Detroit. Clear coppery with a white head. This has a caramel nose with pine and floral hop notes. Sweetness is high. First sip is tasty. A nice little hop bite with plenty of caramel malt. Citrus hops with floral. A hint of cinnamon is a nice touch. I like this beer. It is not really complex but is tasty.
