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.

Bottle - Pours lightly hazy light amber with a huge fluffy off white head. Light citrus/herbal hopping on the nose and a bit of lightly toasted malt. Balanced. Taste is roughly the same, with a hint of nuttiness. A touch of mineral, and not much hoppiness, even through the finish. Light bodied, a little slick, and nice carbonation. Pretty subtle, but very balanced.

This is a nice IPA that tastes and drinks pretty good but doesnít have anything particularly compelling going on in the aroma. The texture is a high point, nice and creamy w/ gentle carbonation. Overall, itís forgettable but Iíd say itís better than most forgettable beers.

Single bottle from Binnyís Build-a-Six rack. Nice copper IPA color with a thick, slightly orange-ish head. Slightly citrus and pine hop smell. Taste is up front with hop bitterness.After a thousand IPAs, it gets hard to say what makes one different from the other, but this does have a slightly larger malt backing, even if it does support a pretty standard hop balance. But as a year-round beer, you canít expect too many non-repeatable variations.

Pours orange and bursting with hoppy citrus and grass. A faint head that doesnít stick around too long. The taste is complex with both sweet and bitter grapefruity notes. Finishes bitter and delicious

Can from Joe and served in my GI IPA tulip: Pours an amber hue with a great lasting head and above average lacework. the aroma has very light dankness, some citrus and pine along with plenty of bready and caramel malt notes. A bit soapy as well. The taste is restrained bitterness, light candied fruit and some toasted bread with slight sweetness from crystal malts. The mouth feel is smooth and quaffable. Really a tad underwhelming in this day and age of rip ur face off IPAís... more akin to an APA than IPA.

Can. Slight haze, orange copper pour with a foamy head. Citrus and floral hop, some caramel sweetness. Bitterness is moderate. Not bad.

Draft. From notes. Grass and grains, slightly earthy hops. Slightly bitter taste. Meh, itís ok.

Murky amber with a thin off-white head and flame lacing. Aroma of citrus, caramel and floral hops. Flavor comes across too vegetal with floral hops and mild caramel, some orange as well. A little too sweet and not as aggressive as most pale ales. Itís okay.

UPDATED: OCT 24, 2012 It sure is an IPA, but I donít know what else to say about it. Maybe more malt flavor than most, and a nice transition to the hops.

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.
