2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Hoppy aroma. Earthy, thin, with a somewhat trashy finish. The hops are there, but it seems a bit watered down.

12oz bottle thanks to thirdeye11.
Burnt orange color with lots of white head. Citrus hop aromas - pretty well balanced with enough malt to tame the bitterness. Not a bad IPA that I’d drink again.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured into a pint glass.
4.0 A: Hazed amber brown color. One and a half fingers of creamy off-white head with average retention and a good bit of lacing.
4.0 S: Pretty good aroma. Equal mixture of hops and malts. Malts offer a good bit of toffee and caramel to a lesser extent. Hops are citrusy and earthy with orange being more apparent. A bit of Chinook-like cat piss and yeastiness too. Pretty good.
3.5 T: Earthy and refreshing. Moderate-heavy bitterness, earthy hops with some citrus and pine, and caramel and toffee malts. Yeastiness is a bit heavy handed, but otherwise pretty good.
3.5 M: Heavier medium body. Good moderate carbonation that is just a tad bity. Could be a bit creamier and a bit less chewy yeast.
3.5 D: Not a bad beer, but I’d prefer it to be a bit cleaner. I like yeastiness to a degree, but this is a tad too much for this beer

Can. Pours a cloudy amber with thin beige head and some soapy lace. Nose dominated by malt, mostly caramel, with some grass and light citrus. Light body with a very bitter finish. Not for me - malty palate wrecker.

On tap at the Pour House. I agree with Nate. This is a really good find as far as IPAs go. Hazy amber caramel, off white head. Aroma is tangerine/floral. Flavor is tangerine/floral; bitter and crisp, yet not too peaty.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle at Barley’s and Hop’s, Bethel Park, PA on 02/11/12. Poured a hazy copper body with a smallish beige head. There was a subtle and slightly funky aroma of light caramel maltiness, a little grapefruit, some citrus rinds, lemon, butter, and wet cardboard. Went down thin to medium-bodied. First and foremost, this beer tasted like it was made with dirty river water. There was an undeniable funkiness all the way through. Some caramel and a light breadiness were both present upfront taste-wise. A little more buttered bread in the middle. The finish was kinda grassy and herbal with a touch of grapefruit and some sour lemon juice. This was just not good.

Hazy amber brown color with nice foamy offwhite head. Aroma is caramel and citrus - pretty typical there. Flavor has a nice sweet caramel base with slight roastiness and good grapefruit citrus flavor. Lots of bitter hoppiness. Really good ipa.

This Micro Brewery was visited on Mother’s day on our trip back from Cleveland. The place was packed. we enjoyed lunch at the bar. The IPA pored a clody amber in a tall 16 oz glass. the head was small and dissapated. The ale had the common citrus of a cascade hops, with some balanced bitterness. The finish was smooth with some bitterness.
