Great beer. Not too malty and not too hoppy. I tend to like to like the hoppier beers. But this has the a good blend.

From the six pack of cans, pours a cloudy orange with a white collar. This is a readily available hoppy bitter beer I have seen almost everywhere which is good because it’s about time i can walk into a 7-11 at midnight and not have to resort to the usual swill. The times they are a changing.

Can from CBB seed. Great hoppy citrus aroma. Flavour has a good nalt profile, but the citrus hops and slight tropical flavours are the heroes. Solid IPA.

12 oz can pours a clear orange with a nice head. Aroma of grapefruit upfront. Tastes of citrus mostly, medium bitterness which surprised me, I expected more.. Quite refreshing actually.
Maybe a side by side with Founders Centennial.

Really strong hop scent, and matching hop flavor. A bit of citrus mixed in with this bold one. Too bad it's a limited run as I'd like to come across it from time to time

Draft in Chicago. A nice IPA, not totally West Coast-fuzzed-out but with some influence, I’d guess. Big pine and citrus hops but with a relatively light tough. Very drinkable. Two of you with a six at a pool on a hot day? Sounds great.

Pours a clear, yellow amber with lots of carbonation and a lather head. Pleasant and clean noble hops aroma. Clean malt taste with balanced noble hops flavor. Minimal stickiness in the mouth with a fresh hops aftertaste.

Can: Cloudy, orange-crusted amber color with a half-inch eggshell layer of foam on top. Aroma has notes of flowers, perfume, leaves, grapefruit rind, grassy hops, a touch of white pepper, buttered biscuit maltiness, maybe a very small hint of caramel. Reminds me of a more toned down Two Hearted, in a way. Flavor is balanced. Sugar crusted grapefruit, rose petals, perfume, a hint of pine, wet grass, & white pepper, a touch of tangerine peel. Finish shows a bigger malt presence; biscuits, toasted crackers, buttered bread, faint caramel, doesn’t get overly sweet, though, which is good. Musky, faded floral aftertaste. Nice stuff, really tasty.

Bottle from cwsample’s wife. Orange pour with a small white head. Aroma is dictatorship, sappy pine, and oranges. Taste is light grain, lots of caramel, and hoppy citrus.
