Bottle. Not a very good beer. It has an orange-gold color with a medium head. Aroma was not a very pleasant grain smell. Maybe it was an old beer. Taste was old moldy grains, and not much hops for an IPA.

MadRobin (2392) - Silver Spring, USA - MAY 4, 2015
Poured from 12 oz. bottle. Clear amber with a 3-finger yellowish buffy head and very good lacing. Faint aroma of citrus, floral hops, grass and bready malt. Taste of floral hops, toast, citrus, light fruit and caramel. The initial taste is bitter floral hops. The other flavors follow in order with malt dominating the finish. The flavors don’t blend well for me. Medium body and medium/low carbonization with a smooth mouthfeel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jbruner (2939) - Athens, Georgia, USA - JUL 6, 2014
Pours a clear gold on tap with fluffy off-white head that leaves moderate lace. Aroma is faint, hints of citrus and bready grain. Taste is more malt forward, but a nice bitter bite on the back end. Soft carbonation, solid, but could be better.
