It pours dark golden with orange tinges. The head is white and leaves plenty of lacing. It has a faint hoppy citrus aroma with more dried fruits like apricot present. It has a citrus taste with dried fruit more present than traditional strong citrus. There is a moderately bitter effect on the palate.

Bottle shared with McTapps. Hitting the scores in a nice dry way with some crispy hops, some citrus fruits and a decent bitterness towards the end. Refreshing one without hitting it high.

US State 20/51 - bottle from a trade with gopherfan99, thank you so much, Steve. The beer has got a deep golden-amber colour with an steady head and medium body. Aroma of hops and pine with citrus hints. Taste of hops, pine, mild herbs, light spices, thyme, citrus fruits and mandarinas. Mild and smooth finish. Quaffable and enjoyable beer.

Bottle (trade with non Rate Beer Member); pours a cloudy yellow orange with a white head; aroma is bittersweet with caramel, malt, and citrus; taste starts sweet from the caramel and then becomes bitter with the citrus; light bitter finish; pretty smooth

Pours a nice gold amber with a white head. Aroma is citrus fruit, some hints of malt. Taste is fruity with some malt flavor and enough hops to be noticeable. True to the English style. On the sweet side for a IPA but a tasty drinkable beer.

Great looking in a Tulip Glass. Very little head. Well balanced and smoothe IPA. Not many fruit tones from the hops, but an all around hoppy taste. The taste of malt lingers afterwards. I could drink a 6 pack and not be displeased. Not all in one sitting though.

BrettTaylor (637) - Radford, Virginia, USA - MAY 17, 2014
Pours a nice gold color with hints of red. Aroma of citrus, malt. Well-balanced taste with malt and hop. Pretty good everyday IPA.

freekyp (1669) - Thomasville, North Carolina, USA - MAY 13, 2014
An excellent every day drinking IPA that showcases EKG hops in both aroma and flavor, preserves a healthy malt/hop balance, and mixes with pretty much any pub grub, or enjoyable on its own. Well done. Wish it was year round.

Garbageman (479) - Lexington, South Carolina, USA - OCT 15, 2013
From tap at brewery. Pours a nice golden yellow with decent white head. aroma is all citrus fruity hops. Taste was fruity with a light malt bill and very little bitter. A mild IPA but good!

Pours golden yellow amber with a fluffy white head. Aroma is pineapple citrus fruit, slightly floral and with notes of malt. Taste is also slightly fruity - again noticeable citrus (pineapple or mango even). Some malt flavor and background hops with a slightly bitter finish and aftertaste. Don't expect an AIPA - this is more in the English style. A tasty beer - perhaps a bit too sweet and under hopped. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
