Can thanks to joshmcg000. Clear orange pour with a 1-2 finger, creamy eggshell head. Aroma of caramel, berry flavored candy and fruity, citrus and floral hops. Flavor is very much like sampling Cascade/Centennial IPA straight from the fermenter, while dry hopping. Tons of fresh hop flavor, lots of bright fruity citrus, but kinda raw yeast-wise and with lots of residual sugar sweetness. Throw in some caramel and crystal malt and thatís pretty much it.Not that that is a bad thing, other than being a bit too sweet, but the fact that the sweetness makes it like fresh hop juice - if hops had juice - makes that ok. Light to medium body with a slightly syrupy feel on entry, with a light, but sharp carbonation, leading to an off dry finish, with a slightly acidic feel. Pretty damn good overall, the hop notes are a little one dimensional, but very bright and fresh.

Good but not great IPA. Just not as balanced as it should be, malty beginnings make way to hoppy bitterness. Decent finish, but still bitted at the end

Can in Seattle, sourced in Chicago by Julie. Darker, brownish orange with lacing foam. Caramel and deadened hops. Smooth sweet before bittering, grain and hop. Tart bitter hop. A bit astringent bitter overall, but some nice flavors.

pivo (2657) - GERMANY - JUN 25, 2016
Fluffy sponges like head. Deep gold color. Light hop nose. Thin body with a light malt note that turns right away into a sharp stinging hop bitter. I swear there is hope resin on my teeth after the swallow! Not balanced, really, but a fun beer!

Didnít really care for this one. Had way to funky of a taste and it just sat in your mouth

I had this at Global Brew. Pours Amber with a white head. Taste pine, citrus, mildly sweet, caramel. I thought this was good. I would drink this again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: JUN 19, 2016 Draft. Pours hazy orange gold with a fizzy white head. Tastes like orange hops, caramel malt, some grapefruit, and a hint pine and passion fruit. Very tasty. Light/medium body and low carbonation. Smells like orange, caramel malt, and grapefruit and pine hops.

Nice balanced IPA, grapefruit hops with supportive malt backbone. Definitely one to come back to despite the slight metalic aftertaste.
