Bomber. Rich orange pour with a white head. Lots of earthy malts in this beer. Quite hoppy. Slight citrus. Okay for me.

a good idea for a local brew. bright and prominent centennial hops - citrus and pine, and a nice hoppy balance for a classic pale ale. a nice story for a pretty normal IPA.

Maltser85 (263) - Fargo, North Dakota, USA - AUG 18, 2014
Very amber orange with a nice off white head. Aroma has some citrus, lemon, lime, hints of mango orange and earthiness. Taste follows the nose. Slight pineyness to the earthy mid palate. Finish is slightly bitter. Leaves a stickiness on the lips and a medium light body. Not bad.

jsquire (3465) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - JUL 23, 2014
Clear amber beer with a dissipating ivory colored head. Fresh red grapefruit hops and earthy notes in the nose. This is an old school straight up IPA with big bitter grapefruit and pine resin hop flavors and a strong earthy malt character. An apple fruitiness comes out as it warms. Long bitter citrus finish.

superspak (2602) - Michigan, USA - JUL 19, 2014
22 ounce bottle into signature pint glass; no bottle dating, but was recently released. Pours slightly hazy deep orange/copper color with a 2 finger dense and fluffy light khaki head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts the whole glass. Nice dense soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of grapefruit, pineapple, peach, lemon zest, orange peel, floral, grass, light pine, caramel, toasted bread, and floral/grassy earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of citrus/grassy hops and moderate dark/bready malt sweetness; with solid strength. Taste of grapefruit, pineapple, peach, lemon zest, orange peel, floral, grass, light pine, caramel, toasted bread, and floral/grassy earthiness. Fair amount of pine/grassy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, pineapple, peach, lemon zest, orange peel, floral, grass, light pine, caramel, toasted bread, and floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice robustness and complexity of juicy citrus/grassy hops and moderate dark/bready malt sweetness; with a great malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, crisp, and lightly sticky/bready mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very nice pale ale. All around good balance, robustness, and complexity of juicy citrus/grassy hops and moderate dark/bready malt sweetness; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

650ml bottle. Amber pour, very nice 0ffwhite head. Smell is orange, citrus, floral, and toasted malt. Falvor has grapefruit, lemon, herbs, acidic, malt underneath, much lower than in the aroma. Nice ipa with not much sweetness at all.

BeerandBlues2 (9693) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - JUL 14, 2014
Bottle at home. Pours lightly hazy bright orange with a large, creamy and pillowy off-white head, long retention with excellent lacing. Aroma is grassy, earthy and heavy citrus hops, cracker and meal, grainy malt with peppery alcohol notes. Flavor is moderate grassy, earthy and citrus hops, supporting cracker malt, lightly toasted with a dry and peppery finish, hop balanced. Medium body and lively carbonation with a bit of hop astringency and a faint but pleasant alcohol warmth.
