A delightful bready character balances lots of citrusy hops in this light bodied West Cost styled IPA.

BrettTaylor (669) - 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.

kramer (5505) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 18, 2015
Bottle. Pours a mostly clear orange copper body with a one finger frothy beige head that left some sticky lace. The nose is citrusy with some really nice grapefruit notes, some restrained caramel and toasty malt below all the hops. The flavor has a really nicely balanced hop profile, equal parts hop flavor and bitterness. Complex lingering mix of citrusy and tropical fruit hops. Medium bodied with soft fizzy carbonation. Pretty nice IPA, I really love the hop bill in here and the restrained sweetness and malt impact in general. Good stuff.

Luvystypotables (1234) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - OCT 7, 2015
Aroma of grapefruit and a hint of dried fruit. Pours a great looking caramel color with a lasting thin white head. Great taste of caramel and grapefruit with a hint of dried fruit. Slightly oily medium body feel with a hint of bitterness in the finish.

Bottle - Bitter flavor with a lot of dryness on the backend. Has a weird but to it. More of a grassy note on the plate. Some of the characteristics are probably due to the higher alcohol content of 7.2% ABV.

Has a mild bitterness with more malty sweetness than many other IPAs. A pleasant surprise.

Base: amber, hazy ale
Palate : medium bodied. Soft, chewy with lighter carbonation. Mid walls.
Taste: good blend. Softer malts with leafy hop bitterness. Late noted heat.
other notes decent choice.

bottle @ Beer Run / Charlottesville VA --- Clear medium orange-amber color, frothy white two-finger head, broken sheets of lace. Aroma of malt and citrus. Taste is sweet malt that adds carbonation and medium citrus hops on the swallow. Malt and hops sashay to a smooth long length finish. A contradiction of sorts: light and enjoyable, obvious session choice, and then...7.2% abv. I’m confused. But...it’s still good.

sebletitje (8116) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JUL 8, 2015
Bottle share @ The Stein & Vine, Brandon. Thanks Ty! Orangé, col blanc. Arôme est houblonné, agrumes et agréablement citronné, notes vertes. Palais est malté tirant sur le pâle et caramel assez prenant et contrebalancé par un houblonné rappelant le Cascade et Amarillo. Retrouve un profil herbacé et agrumes fort plaisant, légère note épicée des houblons qui persistent en toute fin de bouche.

Poured a caramel orange color frothe 12 ounce bottle with aromas of grapefruit, pine, light sweetness and a touch of citrus. Flavors were citrus and pine with some old hops, light malt thrown in as well, a little sweet for my liking.

Nice hop flavor but not bitter. Strong but not overpowering. A really solid IPA. This what a regular IPA should be!
