BrettTaylor (630) - Radford, Virginia, USA - OCT 20, 2013
Aroma - lots of hop notes but that’s about it on the nose - lots of citrus notes. Tastes - not very complex, lots of bitterness from the hops, citrus finish. Pretty long finish, well-carbonated. Good, but nothing super exciting.

kidobutai (490) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - MAY 18, 2015
Poured from a bottle. Average 1-finger sudsy head. Orange and slightly cloudy appearance. Orange citrus aroma. Orange gives way to grapefruit on the tongue. Not unusually tart, hoping for something distinctive but not so much.

radagast83 (5417) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - APR 22, 2015
12oz bottle. Poured a hazy golden yellow color with a fluffy white head. Aroma was fruity, with nice sweet malts. Some balanced notes of bitterness and sweetness. Decent IPA, though I’d say more like an East Coast IPA.

tia (1141) - Sandston, Virginia, USA - APR 14, 2015
Tap @ Greenleaf Pool Hall. Hazy amber with cream head and decent lacing. Very perfumey. Bitterness comes in on the finish, but still perfumey.

LiMuBai (208) - - APR 11, 2015
Pours a hazy, golden amber. Aroma off citrus and pine. A citrus hop character, with a piney hops sprinkled in. The flavor is a bit bready with a moderate bitter finish.

raymow (978) - Bensalem, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 7, 2015
bottled - purchased in Roanoke VA - nice citrus aroma, golden amber coloring, decent hop flavor. Could be a little more balanced but pretty good overall.

MadRobin (2287) - Silver Spring, USA - MAR 26, 2015
Poured from 12 oz. bottle. Hazy, amber-copper with a small khaki head and excellent lacing. Aroma of pine, citrus, grass, bread and caramel. Taste of orange, pine, grapefruit, sweet light fruit, grass and malt. On the sweet side, but adequately balanced by bittering hops. Medium body and medium/high carbonization. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This is my favorite local beer. I have to represent my home town. Compares to a bells two hearted ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Atom (1668) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - FEB 6, 2015
12oz bottle thanks to obguthr, wow a gusher? Pours a murky orange with a large off-white head. Bready citrus orange aroma. Taste similar to aroma more balanced though, a nice mild bitterness. Light and approachable for 7.2% abv, very drinkable, nice!
