Bottle. Pours out an orange color with a white head. Smell is hoppy and fruity with plenty of citrus. Taste is smooth and refreshing. Pretty good beer really, not sure about the low ratings. It was very fresh when i has it...

From tap at Brewery. Pours deep golden/amber color. Aroma was strong of herbal hops and malt. Taste followed. I enjoyed this one.

bubbleflubber (1816) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - AUG 26, 2012
On tap at Brixx Pizza in Asheville. This poured from a brand new keg as liquid murky caramel brown, with a frothy head that leaves thick lacing. The nose is of earth, silage and pine. The flavors are of caramel malt, light pine, a hint of copper and some woody hops. The finish is a semi-lingering bitter. The mouthfeel is nice and easily smooth. Not sure why the low ratings, as I found this to be quite tasty, easily drinkable and superbly integrated.

Sweet citrus scent, beautiful golden/copper pour with fluffy head, light and crisp palate, with a bitter citrus pine flavor.

BrettTaylor (474) - Radford, Virginia, USA - AUG 16, 2013
Poured from bottle - pours a light gold, slightly hazy, with 2 cm frothy white head. Aroma is a mix of citrus and resin. Significant lacing and head is long lasting. Taste has some initial sweetness followed by crisp bitterness. The finish is medium long. This is a very refreshing and tasty beer. I like it a lot.

Kinz (3277) - 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.

DrSilverworm (6301) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 9, 2012
12oz bottle, thanks to Jay. Piney, citrus. Good assertive hop aroma. Decidedly east coast in flavor, somehow. Some grapefruit. Good malt backbone, toast, light caramel, pretzel. Hazy amber / orange color, lots of sediment floating inside. Foamy off-white head, with great retention and good lace. Lighter carbonation, very dry texture. Soft overall. Earthy hops. Orange, stronger bitter taste, buzzes on the tongue. Aggressive, but I think I like that. Very interesting, enjoyable IPA to sip, big flavor for the ABV.

Elwood (3062) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - OCT 14, 2012
Serving: 12 oz. bottle from Chips Wine & Beer. It pours a hazy brownish orange with a lasting off-white head. It’s got a nice nose that I can smell from arms length. Lots of bright citrus and pine. Very dry, almost astringent on the tongue. Lasting pine bitterness that not overwhelming. Not much malt, just enough for body. Nice brew.

Golden ipa with a lasting fluffy white head. Light citrus hop nose. Some caramel sweetness with orange rind, apricot and grapefruit. Nice if unremarkable ipa.
