Pours a nice copper colour with creamy lacing. Really nice floral aroma, violets, rose hips. Was kind of lacking in taste for me. Malty at the front with a little hop kick on the backend. Love the aroma, not a bad beer.

Brown color with some honey in the aroma and dominating the palatte with a bitter edge which seems out of sync with the honey but this is a honey ipa so lets go with this. Once the beer warmed up i was able to appreciate the honey ipa mix more. Sweetness with a bitter edge sums it up for me with rather medium wet mouthfeel.

On tap at Varga Bar, Philly. Deep orange pour, glowing bright in the chalice, and a nice carbonation enhanced the appeal. Soft floral hops are definitely abetted by the honey in the aroma, almost like a hoppy mini-mead except the honey’s too understated I suppose. Light carbonation, some more grass in the taste. Well balanced and enjoyable.

Bottle; poured a copper color with a generous head. Aroma of honey, clove, maybe slight cinnimon. Some citrus hop flavors in taste. A unique twist on the IPA. Creamy texture.

Bottle from Canal’s. pours a dark copper color with a small white head. Aroma is of sweet honey, light cereal, some mild citrus hop and pine sap. Taste is interesting, lots of sweet, sticky honey blending with citrus bitterness that lingers on the finish. Like drinking liquid honey comb cereal garnished with hops. Definitely interesting.

12 ounce bottle from a trade with jdb288. This is quite hazy and dark brown. Cool looking. A big darker beige head has good retention. I smell honey and clover with rich malts. No hops on the nose. The hops are tasted and they are classic west coast hops with a nice grapefruit profile. There is a bit of herbal and pine but the hops are generally citrus. This has a little something different and is a tasty IPA.

On tap at CAH. Poured a medium amber color with a smaller sized off white head. Aromas of floral hops, some citrus, and honey (honey comb). Tastes of the same. I would probalby have guessed this one was a APA vs. an IPA.

Pours a dark copper color with a very thin white head. Aroma of hops, caramel, and pine. Bitter hop flavor dominates with a touch of caramel and honey. Decent beer.

Hoppy aroma. Golden coloured and hoppy with some sweet honey flavour. A hint of dryness in a bitter malt finish.

Lightly hazy orange. Light honey with solid bitterness. Good beer and not as honey forward as unthought it would be.
