Nose is pine hops with a little grapefruit. Initial taste is pine/ citrus hops with a smooth and slightly sweet malt in the background. Lots of tasty pine and citrus hop flavor, but not too much bitterness up front or in the finish. Think Widmer Drifter if it was an IPA. Very balanced beer.

On tap at Lou Malmatiís in downtown Chicago. Pour is clear orange with a small white head and sticky lacing. Huge sticky orange peel, grassy, grapefruity, some lemons, cracker malty, and somewhat bready in the aroma. Taste is orange marmalade, grapefruit peels, some caramel, citrusy, bready, and grassy with a medium bitter finish - very crisp not lingering. Medium body with high carbonation. Nice IPA - very chuggable.

Extremely nice. A bit like a drier two hearted: a strong hop punch in the beginning tempered somewhat with rich caramel and a hint of strawberry/bubble gum then fading to a long, slow, bitter finish.

BeerBunker (863) - Burbank, Illinois, USA - MAY 30, 2015
On tap. Pours copper with a white head. Aroma is of hops, pine, caramel, and tropical fruit. Taste is of hops, pine, and some slight tropical fruit. Lots off caramel. Nice hop burn. Lingering piney hop taste. Mouthfeel is light and sticky. Goes down very easy. Solid beer.

Solid ipa, canít go wrong with it. Definitely a nice go to at a restaurant and such. Great aroma with some citrus and floral coming through. Perfect amount of bitterness for an easy drinking ipa. Great hop flavor with a crisp finish.

Solid IPA, nice that you can always get it, and the price point is great. Some maltiness, and very good citrusy nose.

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.

TattooJack (248) - Illinois, USA - MAY 19, 2015
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 itís 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.
