Tap at the brewpub. Pours amber with a white head. Big citrus/fruit aroma. Med body/sharpish carbonation. Flavor is citrus/floral/resin? Not sure about the resin. Lots and lots of hop. Malt is pleasantly submerged.

Tap. Pours copper/amber with a medium, fizzy white head, medium retention with good lacing. Aroma is medium malt (bread, cookie, caramel), heavy hops (floral, citrus, pine), and medium fruity esters (apple/pear). Flavor is malt with heavy hops and light alcohol. Medium body, warmth, and carbonation with a dry finish.

Dogbrick (11491) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAR 31, 2010
On draught at the brewpub. This brew is a hazy ruddy orange color with a medium off-white head that dissipates steadily. Citrusy hops aroma with notes of malt and caramel. Rich body with flavors of hops, grapefruit, sweet malt and a bit of pine. The finish is resiny hops with a lingering bitterness left behind. Good all around.

deyholla (9997) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAY 15, 2011
On tap at the brewpub. Poured a clear orangish gold with a white head that dissipated completely. Aroma was full of hops with resinous grapefruit, a bit of light citrus and a backing sweet grains. Flavor began with citrus but quickly became full of grapefruit and resinous pine with a sweet grain backbone.

j12601 (9548) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - APR 29, 2010
On tap at Piece. Pours a lightly hazy golden orange with a medium sized white head. Huge citrus and pine, nice pineapple notes. Yummy. Hoppy with a big caramel malt flavor. Long slow grapefruit finish over some subtle caramel tones. This was really nice.

JaBier (6976) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - JAN 2, 2010
On tap at Piece. Opaque orange pour with a thin off-white head. Orange and grapefruit aroma with a touch of sweet malt. Tangy orange flavor with some malt and a bitter grapefruit finish that is nicely rounded. Very well executed beer, and it doesn’t surprise me a bit coming from these guys.

Braudog (6341) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - MAY 6, 2010
Draft at the brewpub. Deep bronze. Wicked piney aroma and a following viscous outdoorsy hoppiness. Wicked. (#3891, 5/6/2010)

Piece seems to have about a dozen IIPAs but they do a good job on all of them so no complaints. Hazy orange color. Filled to the brim so no head but it does leave a good bit of lacing on the side of the glass. Tremendous hoppy nose. My guess is loads of amarillo. There’s lots of sweet orange and a slight floral overtone. Slightly fruity sweet but balanced by a firm earthy bitterness. Light to medium bodied, esp. for a higher gravity beer, w/ vigorous carbonation to help dry things out a bit. Another nice, fruity hop-accented beer from Piece. They get more attention for their wheats but they do these as well as anyone.

chibuck (3510) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 27, 2011
I had this on tap into a tasting glass at Piece. Its dark gold with a hint of orange good retention and lacing. The aroma is superlight for a dipa, a little piney hops, small grapefruit but thats it. The taste is really nice though, super easy to drink and flavorful not overpowering at all. If you want a smooth piney ipa, give this a shot.
