Thanks to Nick fro bringing back this growler. Amber pour with a frothy white head. Aroma of sweet caramel malts, nuttiness and floral piney hops. Sweet flavor throughout with a touch of piney hops coming through on the end. Not bad just a little under done.

UPDATED: FEB 20, 2013 Pours a golden orange on tap with thin white head and light lacing. Aroma of pine and citrus from the hops, with a hint of pale and caramel malts. Taste follows, with a clean and crisp finish. Good stuff when its fresh, much worse out of the can than on tap.

16oz can. This was an awesome IPA. Perfect after a long day walking around New Orleans. Very hoppy and crisp with nice floral, citrus and pine flavors.

Tap on Bourbon Street. Hazy dull deep amber-tan-brown. Big foamy off-white head. Much more enjoyable than their Blonde or Wheat, this is a respectable medium to full bodied IPA. Middle of the road hop wise, pretty classic orange-pine hop taste. Standard but enjoyable.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Two days in a row of over 10 beer reviews… my creative wordsmithing has severely diminished. This beer has a bright, reddish orange color and a dense white head. Its aroma is nice and smooth, but with a somewhat jagged edge to it that’s slightly citrusy and, honestly, almost plastic-like. Mostly, though, it smells of wet hops and fermented grains, sweet and delicious. Its flavor is nice as well. It has a great body that’s heavy enough to support the beer’s robust hops and moderate caramel malts. This is a great-balanced beer.

We had this beer at the 2013 Tops of the Hops in Biloxi, MS. It was not for me. Too bug spray-ish.

16oz can via UD in trade. Big golden body with similar growing oily head. A lucious nose of hops and malts that does not seem to fade. Spectacularly balanced. Hops and malts appear continuously and show their stuff like runway models from VS. Its like a small parade of separate hops and malts in my mouth. Yum...

Bottle: The aroma consists of mango, caramel, toffee, and stale citrus hops. It pours a transparent golden-orange with a small soapy white film for a head. The flavor starts with mango, orange, and caramel. The finish has oxidation and stale grapefruit hops. It’s light-medium bodied with mild carbonation.

can via Ldhughes3. Pours golden amber with foamy cream colored head. Head has great retention and leaves a curious coating of lacing. Nose of yeast, malt, and pine. Taste startes with a solid grapefruit and pine punch washed over buy malt and light caramel. Ample bitterness, though it leaves me yearning for more. Alchohol dances at the finishes. Body is a tad thin.

Picked this one up during the AHA conference in New Orleans on a whim. Surprisingly good! Deep orange color, crisp and bright with a somewhat light mouthfeel, lots of pine and resin with a citrus sweetness. Pretty aggressive.
