Decent, not great ipa. Good hoppy nose with slight hunt of sweat citrus. Fairly dry finish with tingly mouthfeel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle left at my house from fantasy football draft. Poured to glass. Nose is a pungent grass with light orange skin. A dusty Munich malt aroma as well. Not an overly inviting aroma. Crystal clear, deep yellow, small white head. Taste is bitter, moderately pithy up front, followed by a faint citrus note, then falls flat into a watery finish. Ends with a moderate to high alcohol warming in the chest. Not really good at all.

BillWyce (851) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 24, 2015
Growler from GAT Beer in NE Phila. Pours lightly hazy golden color with a 1-finger off-white head. Aroma is mild, mixing citrus and biscuit notes. Body is a touch lighter than medium and slightly watery. Finish is brief and very slightly dry. Mild flavor of citrus with a biscuit note beneath.

zandercorp (37) - crestview, Florida, USA - AUG 20, 2015
A decent mainstream IPA. Poured from draft at local Buffalo Wild Wings. Made a great pairing with wings and fries. Not as hoppy/floral as other brands.

UPDATED: AUG 23, 2015 Pleasant citrus aroma in an amber pour. Taste is much the same - pleasant - but nothing to write home about.

sickboy84 (11) - ITALY - AUG 15, 2015
Schiuma bianca, fine e persistente. Colore giallo paglierino con corpo pulito anche se non completamente trasparente. All’olfatto risulta una birra abbastanza "semplice" con il tipico odore erbaceo ed agrumato dei luppoli utilizzati. Al palatto la birra risulta abbastanza leggera ed acquosetta (se non l’avessi servita direttamente dalla bottiglia, avrei giurato che fosse stata allungata con l’acqua), l’amaro è molto leggero ed in generale risulta essera poco intensa e persistente. In generale piuttosto mediocre e non credo la riproverò in futuro.

Sjohnh (485) - Coventry, West Midlands, ENGLAND - AUG 11, 2015
Agree with other reviewers - an APA rather than an IPA. Nice and drinkable though, with a decent malt base and subtle tropical fruits. Rusty orange colour, white head, body is a bit too light for me.

Johnstledger8 (263) - Dublin, IRELAND - AUG 10, 2015
Draught. Pours cloudy yellow with a thin lasting white foamy head. Aroma of citrus, hay. Taste is of citrus, melon, some exotic fruit hints. Medium carbonation, dry finish, oily mouthfeel.

colui72 (324) - HONG KONG - AUG 2, 2015
It says IPA on its label but it’s more similar to an APA. Golden with white head, caramel and hoppy aroma. Tastes fruity and hoppy, without going into too much bitterness. Nice simple and easy drinking beer, nothing more that this.

HuskerTan (982) - Kearney, Nebraska, USA - JUL 29, 2015
Bottle. A- Pine, spruce, juniper, herbs, A- Orange color, hazy liquid, off white head. T- Pine, juniper, bitter, caramel. P- Medium body, average texture, average carbonation, spicy finish. O- Started off smelling like I walked into a damn Colorado pine forest. Tons of pine and herbs. Taste was about the same with some caramel that subdued as it warmed. Not as bad as I envisioned it to be, but not for me.

Pours clear amber, good head retention. Mild floral and woody-like aroma. Bland flavor, malty and lightly hopped. Meh.
