On draught at the brewery. Earth, forest floor and fruit marry well on the aroma. Pours a hazy orange wih white head of large bubbles leaving a dusting across the top. Puckering citrus blends with solid malt backbone for an easy drinking IPA. Moderate bitterness and semi-dry finish. Slightly thin mouthfeel overall.

On tap at the brewery. Aroma is nice and hop forward, but not a one dimensional fruit character. Lots of tropical and stone fruit but also some grapefruit and pine resin. Light malt notes of cracker in the background. Pours a cloudy golden orange with a thin white head that recedes to the edges and lingers. Medium light lacing and faint legs. Flavor has a nice, light sweetness with medium light cracker malt notes. Moderately strong hop notes of stone and tropical fruit with lighter citrus character. Medium light pine resin with moderate bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carbonation. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth. Overall, a pretty nice, balanced IPA, but not the hop bomb that people expect these days. Really nice, fresh multidimensional hop character.

Growler shared by yourefragile. Thanks Michael. The beer has a hazy orange body and sports a half inch of white head. The nose brings dank hops along with prominent grapefruit and tangy citrus. oranges and hops. Juicy and delicious. Easy to drink, finishing dry with moderate bitterness. A solid IPA.

PhillyCraft (3096) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 27, 2014
At the source, pours glowing murky orange with thin clear bubbled white head. Aromas and flavor are skunk, orange peel, pine, and dank hops. Super dry and bitter in the finish with a coating of orange resin left on the tongue.

Hazy golden orange body, large white head, sticky lacing. Piney with a fair bit or resin, followed by some tangerine and clementine. Medium bodied, with smooth carbonation and assertive bitterness. Quite tasty.

AdamJackson (2348) - Enfield, New Hampshire, USA - JAN 23, 2014
Very cloudy. Sticky foamy head. Nose is pine cones resin and tangerine. Yeah, uber resinous. Sticky dank and full of pine needles. Itís as expected. Finishes harsh. Iím not a fan of these but itís still nice

At 99 Bottles in Santa Cruz. Cloudy yellowish colour, but treats like a good IPA. Nice and bitter.

mcberko (5942) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 26, 2013
On tap at Sante Adairius, pours a cloudy peachy blonde with a small white head. Aroma smells like a cross between a farmhouse ale and IPA, with herbal hops, farmhouse yeast, and pot. Flavour is similar, bringing out loads of piney hops, and intense herbal, pot-like hops. Theyíre not messing around here - a rather abrasive hempy IPA. Good stuff.
