Brought a growler hoping to fill it, found out that the 6 dollar growlers of mall ipa that we have all grew to love has become 10 dollars to fill....weak. I would have still gladly filled one but this beer was boozey, sugary, and not what I have come to expect after trying killer batches of Citra, Subzero, and the old version of Simcorilla. Poured copper color with small white head, aromas and flavor are bitter hops, oranges, and grape candy sugar. It did get better as it warmed from its near-frozen temp but just too sweet and aggressive for me.

callmemickey (3005) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 20, 2014
(2014 version at 7.9% ABV) Clear golden-orange colored body, medium to large white head, soapy lacing. Resin, grapefruit, pine. Big classic notes. Outside of the mild lingering sweetness, the malt base stays out of the way. Medium to full bodied, a tad sweet, slightly boozy, assertive bitterness.

growler thanks to Tim-pours slightly hazy yellow/gold with a white head. Aroma is sweet citrus-orange. Taste is pine/citrus-orange/grapefruit hops, 2nd light malt-bready.

Cloudy golden pour orange tint to it, thin layer of soapy bubbly creamy head and light sticky lacing ... aroma is of floral and resiny hops, grapefruity and rindy hops with some toasted and caramel malts ..... taste of light piney, citrusy grapefruit and rindy hops, lightly toasted malts, floral hop, nice bitter resiny bite that lingers for a bit and caramel malts .... finishes dry hopped and rindy ... nice malty flavors on the backend and a great bitter rindy/resiny hop flavor ... good stuff abv hidden well

mcox90 (1588) - Wilton, New Hampshire, USA - JUL 15, 2012
From a growler shared by jwattsrugger. Poured bright yellow with a foamy white head. Hoppy aroma with grapefruit being dominate. Citrus hop bitterness in the flavor. Moderate bodied with hop oil dulling the tongue. Very nice, thanks John for bringing this.

adrian910ss (2371) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 12, 2010
On draft at the brewpub. Pours a semi clear orange gold with a frosty white head. Simcoe hops dominate the aroma. Also, orange citrus, funk and light pine present in the nose. Taste of simcoe hops, orange citrus, grapefruit, pine and funk.

Damico (2681) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 9, 2010
Golden simcoe dry hopped. There are pleasant citrus, piney sweet notes. It pours light golden amber with a decent creamy white head. The flavors of smooth hops right away, again sweet and piney, which settle elegantly without any hop or boozy bite at all. The body is medium.

obxdude10 (2077) - Pottstown, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 6, 2010
Awesome IPA on draft at the KoP Rock Bottom. The beer poured a bright golden color with a substantial white head. The head left some nice, cascading lace around the glass. The nose was very floral and smacked me right in the face with all the hops. The body was quite assertive, as well, with a ton of resiny, sticky and delicious dry and spicy hops.

3.3
   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 14/20
Jsawyer (297) - Glenside, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 4, 2009
Poured turbid yellow-gold with little to no head. It did leave some lacing. Aroma was freshly floral and citric, slightly bready, and caramel. Again it was floral, bitterly citric, caramel. The malt wasn’t balanced too well unfortunately. Had a bit of a dry resinous finish. Standard IPA nothing special.
