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.

Can. Pours a nice orange/copper with a thin head and aromas of silo dust and a little citrus. Flavor is grainy with a caramel sweetness and a little hops punch at the end. The hops are muted and directionless in this can. Maybe a little bit of oranges and grass.

Amber with a thin head and some lacing. Hoppy, floral nose. Malty intro and mouthfeel that transitions easily to a mildly hoppy, sweet finish.

Tap. Poured a bright amber with a medium white, foamy head. Very smooth on the tongue - less sharp than Saint Arnold’s Endevour. Great taste from an excellent hop profile. Smoothness continued to the finish with less of a bitter back end than other IPA’s.

Poured up on tap at GABF 2012 with a clear gold body supporting a light tan head of foam. The mild aroma offers up a sweet mix of orange citrus like hops and earthiness and then a little grassiness near the end of the draw. This taste is smooth tasting and seems hop flavor forward that starts a little sweet with malts mixing with orange and grapefruit hoppiness creating an orange juice sensation. Midway and into the finish the thin layer of sweet malts recedes leaving a modest degree of grapefruit like citrus bitterness that heads into the finish. After another sample this ends pleasingly bitter and forces your hand making you try a third sample. Nice IPA.

Abslolutley fabulous. Perfect CO2. Fair aroma. Hop flavor citrus, grapefruit, and wondefull peppery overtones. Great clear brew and good clean hoppy finish.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pint in a plastic cup at Beer Fest. This is a decent IPA. It’s clean and bitter but with no real standout hop quality. The aroma is coppery and earthy with grassiness. This tastes almost like an English IPA with its assertive malt flavor and earthy, wooden flavor. The finish is quick. This is clean, but needs more hops. It could be conceived that the keg has a little age on it, but didn’t taste outright old. I’ll pick up a sixer if I ever see it again and give it another go.
