Why do I like this better than Big Hearted? It certainly has a similar wild drying out affect in the mouth. But I think here the hops pause in their mad dash across the palate to let the other goodies catch up.

The finish is flat and disappointing. It has a muted, but nice floral smell. Pours dark and a little cloudy with an off white head. Almost no after taste, but it doesnít finish clean. It just leaves a faint dry sensation. Eh.

A well balanced IPA. Not too hoppy and not too bitter. Definitely worth a try if you are an IPA lover. Moderately priced as well at under $2.00 a bottle. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12oz bottle into a pint glass. Pours a hazy dark orange, nearly brown with a one finger thick white head with substantial head retention and lacing. Aroma is very earthy and dank with just a few touches of tropical citrus. Lots of toast and caramel underneath coming from the malt. Really nice and somewhat unique in the IPA world. Lots of biscuit in the flavor combined with the earthy dank hops. Toasted caramel as well. The biscuit really stands out, though. Some more juicy tropical fruit underneath with almost a bit of smoke in the finish although it is very subtle. Bitterness is only moderate and the finish somewhat sticky. Overall, I really like this beer. I love the biscuit malt character and the hops are somewhat unique. I would like a slightly drier finish but all in all, this is an excellent brew.

12 oz bottle pours amber with a off white head. Aroma of grain, malts, and floral. Taste is malts, citrus and grain.

Bottle from unknown, via Darton. Pours a rich amber-orange, little to no off-white head. Aroma slight, with some floral overtones, crisp and subtle. Body lively, finish full with a crisp biscuit malt character. Well-balanced, but not much bitterness. Possibly negatively affected by age, but can see the stirrings of a good beer.

Smells like an ipa. Bright. Hops. The body is smooth and light, bit syrupy. Citrus, honey-ish, I am pairing this with Indian food, so I may be off on the tasting notes. Basic decent ipa.

Emeister84 (768) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - MAR 23, 2014
A vast bouquet of hops, featuring notes of pine resin, citrus and stone fruits, and flowery notes. Slightly hazy, burnt sunset orange, with a mostly fading white head. Dry, juicy, piney. Light-medium bodied, pretty clean.

ADesenberg (501) - Ohio, USA - MAR 21, 2014
Draft: copper with a nice light tan head. Very floral and slightly fruity. Itís got a nice caramel backbone, and is fairly full bodied. This is well balanced and extremely enjoyable, but has nothing "exciting" going for it.

Bottle from Zippís Liquors. Pine, crushed flowers, some earthiness in the nose. Coppery/amber color. Mild citrus and some resinous touches / sweet maltiness / very light lingering hops. Medium body. Well-balanced, middle of the road IPA. Drinkable and pleasant.

Itís all right, citrus hopiness aromas pop out first followed by some green grape notes and some very faint biscuit aromas. easy drinking IPA. Itís prominently caramel and citrus ok to drink.
