12 ounce bottle from Guntown. Pours a cloudy orange hue with a medium white head. A decent orange and citrus nose. The flavor is decent; biscuit, lemon, some zest. Lots of crystal. Smooth.

12 oz. can from Santa. Pours a clear dark golden/amber color with a medium sized off white head. The aroma and flavor have a big malt character up front, caramel, light toast, with some orange and grapefruit citrus, some herbal tea, hops seem a bit faded, just ok.

Can to snifter. Looks solid; a transparent orange with thin eggshell lacing. Smells of bitter hops with what appears to be some light oxidization (which doesn’t make much sense coming from a can). Tastes like it smells, but with pale malt in place of the oxidization. Average on the palate; on the thinner side for the style. A forgettable example of the style.

Can sample at the Rivertowne tasting at Blacklick Wine & Spirits on 4/10/14. Clear amber pour with a thick off-white head. Aroma of malt, pine and spicy hop. Malty flavor up front, giving way to grassy and earthy hops before a bitter, earthy finish.

UPDATED: AUG 17, 2014 Sampled on draft at the brewery this beer pours a golden color with a small white head. There is a light flowery hop aroma. The flavor is moderately flowery and fruity hops and grows a bit dry on the finish.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
This poured a lighter orange color with a beige head. Aroma mainly off grassy and lightly citrus hops, with caramel notes too. Flavor was malty and bitter but not with much hop flavor. Not too great.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz bottle. Pours a slightly hazy amber-copper body with a small fizzy off-white head. The nose is just lightly hoppy with a little crystal malt below. Doesn’t smell especially inviting, as far as an IPA goes, but there’s nothing wrong with it. The flavor is pretty lacking in the hops department, especially for being touted as "aggressively" hopped. There’s a little too much dark crystal malt in here for my tastes, leaving a little too much sweetness lingering on the finish. Not really up my alley as far as the style goes. Medium bodied, a little clingy, moderate fizzy carbonation. Not for me, but I’d like to try it again directly from the source though.
