Bottle during the RBWG lobby share. Pours a cloudy orange with small white head that diminishes to nothing. The aroma is grain and bready malt. Thin mouth, resin hop, light pine, decent.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle at the Savannah Mellow Mushroom. Pours with a thick, mushy consistency. Has an opaque rust color and a firm standing head. Drinks with a thick orange malt essence and a nice alcoholic kick. Not bad for a Southern brew ... definitely a sipper. (#4706, 7/24/2012)

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from Total Wine, Naples. The pour’s amber with a tiny head. Plenty of dandruff and floaties in the glass. The nose is full of caramel, sweetened orange peel, toast. The taste is more caramel, a bit of unripened melon. Moderately grassy bitterness on the finish. Medium body, soft carbonation. Overall, a pretty middle of the road IPA.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear amber with a fast-fading head. Nose smells leafy and a wee bit resinous with a small sweetness behind it. The flavor is strongly hopped with some leafy and grassy bitterness, a little pine, finishing with an amberish caramel tone. A little heavy on the leafy resin, otherwise kinda average and forgettable. Frankly, a little on the tame side, especially toward the end of the glass.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Thanks to Martinus. 355 ml. bottle sampled @ Delirium Hoppy Loft. Dark amber, little white head. Nose is huge dry almost medicinal pine with huge herbal malt presence. Taste is watery bitter herbs, dried grapefruit peel & lots of herbal malts, light pine. Watery & herbal. Badly construct & old on top I feel, not really worth drinking.

3.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 ounce bottle from Hayduke. We had it together via facebook chat. Some haze in this golden orange beer. One finger of foam that soon almost completely disappeared. An odd aroma that is hard to describe. Fortunately it tastes much better. All kinds of tropical fruit and grapefruit is tasted. Decent bitterness. Some pine resin, too. This was a classic west coast IPA and it is a nice one. I happen to like the style a lot.
