GTAEgeek (1238) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - SEP 22, 2014
12 oz. bottle. Pours light gold, with a medium, foamy, beige head. Bursting floral and citrus aroma, with some notes of pine, caramel, and some light cinnamon. Sweet and malty, with some significant bitterness. The aftertaste is long, bitter, and a little off. Light to medium body, sticky, and fairly astringent. Overall, this is mediocre IPA. Slightly off flavor, and unpleasant, metallic mouthfeel.

SpringsLicker (3156) - Tennessee, USA - SEP 21, 2014
Clear gold with generous mostly white head. Leaves sticky webbing on the sides of the glass as it slips below. The aroma is light flowery citrus hops. The flavor is lightly bitter with a sweet malt support that says hello and then steps aside to let the hop bitterness close the show in a long bitter finish.

scotchzombie (345) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - SEP 19, 2014
Pours hazy straw amber with a massive foamy white head that laces like mad. Aroma is jammy lemon-orange-floral citrus. Taste is quick to the piney hops and then flows into some rich orange-grapefruit citrus. Backbone is semi-sweet and the aftertaste is bitter. Very atypical but enjoyable and drinkable AIPA. Wish this were a regular from Natty G - it's one of their best.

Really didnt enjoy this IPA it has a strange hop palate and was not sticky or smooth, just kind of flat all around. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Kinz (3307) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - AUG 24, 2014
Bottle at random North Carolina bar. Grapefruit hop aroma, slight caramel malt as well. Flavor matches. Maybe not spectacular, but a pleasant bitterness, and the hop profile was pleasant, with some tropical notes mixing in as well. Nice.

SpongeRuiner (752) - Michigan, USA - AUG 4, 2014
Snagged a bottle from a trade. Pours a bright orange color with a very long lasting white head. Leaves a spotty nice lacing. A very tingly hop grapefruit nose. A pleasant cool pine flavor right up front. A very bitter hop character with a nice soft feel. Pretty good.

CelticBrew (826) - The Crystal Coast, North Carolina, USA - JUL 18, 2014
Pours out an amberish hue, with a white head. Lots of pineapple and citrus on the nose, taste has a nice sweet malt up front and finishes dry with a mildly bitter note of pine and citrus. The flavour has a flowery and light citric hops, light sweetness, and a grassy finish. Decent enough, overall not bad.

Suttree (5186) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JUL 14, 2014
Clear orange, with a thin sheet of white foam. Grainy, roasty aroma. Flavor is pine or spruce, with some citrus, and goo deal of caramel. Pretty tasty...
