Floral nose, marigolds. Clear amber, medium head, good lacing. Flavor is of lillies although it is doughy on the back. Alcohol is noticeable. This is a floral IPA on the upper limit of alcohol content, not quite an IIPA, but not terribly quaffable either. Good choice for an immediate dose of hops.

Ppirs a hazy bright orange. A citrus hop aroma. Some pilsner like characteristics with grains, pine, and malt, but still a nice bitter citrus hop taste and aftertaste. Very dry.

Grainy appearance with a lot of carbonation. The aroma is just what you want a American IPA to have, wonderful citrus smell with a bit of piney aroma. Nice taste with a grapefruity and very slight orange, with a good bitter bite at the middle and finish that you want in a good solid IPA. Overall, this was a solid American IPA that I totally stumbled upon and would try again!

I had this at Global Brew. Pours amber with a white head. Taste citrus, floral, hoppy. I thought this was pretty good. I would definitely drink this again.

Bottle. Amber colored with a medium head. All I have to say is, it’s another IPA. Even though there may be some slight differences for the most part they all smell and taste very similar. Citrus, floral, pine in both flavor and aroma.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
on tap at Pazzo’s (Lexington, KY)
clear amber body with good clarity; durable, creamy white head leaves the glass well coated with sticky lacing.
Aroma: moderately strong; unusual hop component is fruity but not citrusy excepting some grapefruit Also rather floral.
Flavor: a bit unusual too. Again, odd fruity component. A hint of vanilla; a touch floral. A good bit of grapefruit and grapefruit rind in the fnish and aftertaste.
Feel: light-medium bodied; medium carbonation that seems a touch low.

bottle via trade. I suck and don’t remember who. poured to snifter. nose is full of a perfect blend of American hops, with even some notes of newer ones like citra. pours slightly hazy. flavor is nothing short of a fresh hop explosion in your mouth. Citrus, lemon, pine...WOW. This is honestly one of the best IPAs I think I have ever had. malt stands up to a solid bitterness but isn’t sweet at all. A tad bit of alcohol warming, almost hot, could be better masked. wow, good stuff.

Vegetal scent. Almost like a cucumber with sweet honey dew melon, with a touch of citrus. The flavor is almost similar with a small blast of hops up front that doesn?t linger too long . Very refreshing. I don’t know why, but I?m craving sea food. Could be a good paring. Cheers!
