COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Exploding with hop flavor and aroma, this citrus/piney/floral ale has enough of a malt backbone to stand up to the intense bitterness.

finger head showed quickly and had some decent staying power. The soapy thickness of the head makes for some decent lacing. Zesty grapefruit stands up front followed by pine, lemon and orange. The hops are extremely aromatic and they overpower the sweet, caramel smelling malty backbone. Smooth, sweet hoppy bitters are up front in the mouth and evoke tastes of grapefruit and pine being most prominent. The malty caramel background here is light but contributes well to the sweetness here. Very drinkable for the hop lover. Thick on the front but some middle of the road carbonation makes the end crisp and refreshing. Keeps bringing me back for more. Very tasty overall. Well rounded and refreshing. Just a slightly above average IPA and something I could enjoy a few of and a summer evening.

Bottle at home. Hazy amber orange with a lot of sediment. Aroma of piney hops and rich, sweet malt. Tastes of honey, toast, orange, resin. Nicely balanced. Lingering hop bitterness.

Bottle pour. Gorgeous orange wheat color in glass. Foamy white head the persists. Solid lacing all the way down. No complaints. Aroma is fresh and creamy orange, rounded pine and resin notes, and slight toasted malt and honey. Works well. Medium body. Straight up hop juice;: oily and bitter. Citrus and resin, a light hard candy like sweetness. Full mouthfeel. Lingers on finish. Solid.

SpongeRuiner (640) - Michigan, USA - JUL 1, 2014
Got a bottle from a trade. Pours a clear orange color with a thick thick bubbly chunky head. The head really lingers on for a while leaving a webbed lacing. A nice light fresh floral hop nose. A hopped carbonation upfront. A nice mix of floral notes and a grapefruit citrus. A touch of caramel in the middle. Crisp and drinkable. A very decent IPA.

obguthr (3636) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - APR 23, 2014
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!
