michael-pollack (4960) - King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 2, 2012
12oz. Bottle: Got in trade from smith4498; THANKS Jason! Aroma of hops, citrus, and hints of malt and caramel. Poured orange in color with a large, creamy, dense, off-white head that quickly diminished but lasted throughout as a film on top of the beer. Cloudy. Lightly sparkling. Full of small and large-sized particles throughout. Very good lacing. Flavor is lightly sweet and lightly bitter. Tastes of malt, hops, and caramel. Medium body. Dry texture. Average carbonation. Lightly sweet, lightly bitter, malt, hop, and caramel finish is dry.

jackl (4920) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - MAR 27, 2013
Bottle from Total Wine, Naples. The pourís 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.

jgb9348 (4843) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - MAR 18, 2014
Crisp copper and bronze coloured body with a thin, one centimetre tall tan head. Aroma of bright floral and grassy hops with some herbal notes and a good bit of malt in the mix. Medium-bodied; Assertive grassy and floral flavour at first with no malt at all - just some dry hop notes and no depth or backbone. Aftertaste shows more of the hop residue with nothing substantial behind it - just an airy herbal and piney hop flavour with no malt to grasp onto. Overall, a pretty poor offering - the hops show decently, but without any malt, there isnít too much to this beer - subdued and grassy and thatís about it. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Total Wine in Tampa, Florida on 03-January-2014 for US$1.99 sampled at home in Washington on 18-March-2014.

onceblind (4512) - Denver, Colorado, USA - FEB 3, 2014
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.

ChainGangGuy (4420) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - DEC 22, 2011
12 ounce bottle - $1.69 at Olde Crabapple Bottle Shoppe in Alpharetta, Georgia.

Appearance: Pours a gently hazed, light copper-hued body with a growing, lasting, off-white head. Quality lacework on the descent.

Smell: Strongly floral hops, but also an infusion of citrus and a mite bit earthy over a basic, simplistic base of bready malts.

Taste: Lightly bready malts with a small, small nibble of golden syrup sweetness. Notably floral hops with sips of lemon and white grapefruit juices and a light telltale earthiness. Moderately bitter. Juicy, floral on the bitter finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium carbonation.

Overall: Not quite as expressive as Sweetwaterís IPA, but itís fairly decent.

Aurelius (4359) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - FEB 17, 2012
Not the worst label Iíve ever seen, but it puts me in a mind of Christmas with the red and green candy stripe - and nothing says Christmas like a toad. The beer itself is cloudy and light brown. The aroma is a broadside assault of hops at first - as things settle down and warm there is lots of fresh pineapple, and the hops fade back into a supporting kat whizz role. Sweet (not too) and candied at times with lots of pineapple. The hops are really in a flavor and aroma role, and the brew is really not very bitter at all, until the end when it gets strongly bitter and perhaps a bit overbrewed tasting. Medium body, loses carbonation some. ABC Liquors, Betton.

unclemattie (4262) - Georgia, USA - DEC 16, 2011
12oz bottle. Orange color. Loads of floaties make it a bit un-appealing Aroma of hops; simple pine. Malt scent is a simple caramel. Tastes of very bitter hops, distant malt. Not great.
