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.

Hops hit you immediately with a sweet flavor. Goes down smooth with the perfect amount of carbonation. Finish is surprisingly bitter but still enjoyable.

jmcgavin12 (492) - Madison, USA - MAR 30, 2013
Pours orange and bursting with hoppy citrus and grass. A faint head that doesn’t stick around too long. The taste is complex with both sweet and bitter grapefruity notes. Finishes bitter and delicious

brokensail (11599) - Orange County, California, USA - FEB 27, 2013
Slightly hazed orange pour with a khaki head. Mediocre hop aroma of grass, flowers, pine, and orange peel. A bit of green apple, straw, and some sweet caramel. The taste is kind of astringent and bitter. Pine, grass, and floral hop notes, mild citrus, and some sweet caramel and bread notes.

MIBRomeo (2567) - Wisconsin, USA - FEB 2, 2013
Cloudy off brown pour tall dense light tan head with nice lacing. Fruity light citrus and grass aroma. Avg palate. Quite sweet subtle bitterness in the swallow. Easy to drink.

ads135 (3078) - Lawrence, Kansas, USA - JAN 29, 2013
Not a bad IPA. For once, an American IPA isn’t overwhelmingly hoppy. This is fairly well balanced and its hop v. malt profile approaches a pale ale. Not bad at all. Tried with Josh N. in 2013.

ccex (961) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 11, 2013
12 oz bottle pours a hazy amber color with a fluffy white head and some lacing. Arome is simply floral hops and caramel malts, but not strong. Flavor is more malty than hoppy, but has a dry finish. Medium body with just the right amount of carbonation. Easy to drink, but not very memorable.

GuinnessHong (147) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 31, 2012
Pours a dark mahogany, rust color, with generous carbonation & head. Hoppy, citrus aromas & flavors. Mild hop bitterness. Very smooth & tasty.

MarinEvelyn (597) - Wisconsin, USA - NOV 25, 2012
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.

beerbaaron (1347) - Arizona, USA - NOV 25, 2012
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 (4853) - 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.
