Hazy light amber with a thick head. Bright hop aroma with hints of wood, nice citrus. Smells awesome. Dry, pithy, herbal with just a hint of almost fruity sweetness. Really nice example.

Tasted at Jupiter beerfest. This was actually quite good! Orange pour wtih a nice head. Aroma is full of citrus hops. I get lots of different citrus, grapefruit, lemon and calamondin. Flavor has a great hop bite full of grapefruit peel and some nice malts to finish this one off...yum.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Growler acquired in trade from kramer17801 (as part of the Mystery Beer Swap v2) thanks!. Poured a deeper and hazy golden amber color with a smaller sized off white head. Aromas of pine, grapefruit, and light caramel. Oddly enough, the aroma reminded me of a tuna sushi hand roll (not sure why that came to mind, hmmm, I’ll have to go get some sushi tomorrow - could be, I’m just hungry and love sushi). Tastes of pine, citrus (oranges), caramel, and had a grapefruit bitter finish.

On tap at the brewpub. Orange-grapefruit colour with lace sheets. Wonderful aroma of orange and grapefruit fresh juice. Well malted, understated carbonation. Taste is orange and grapefruit. A long finish. Soft mouthfeel, typically easy to drink Selin Grove.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Growler shared at Campdown Brewdown. Clear orange pour with medium white foam. Herbal, squashy hop nose. Excellent, dank nose. Taste is thicker, oily, bitter, herbal. Very rich with no astringency or wooly, sawdust tannins. Nice.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pale orange pour. The nose is quite sweet and estery. A bit of soft fruit and some cherry esters. Sort of a sticky sweetness with a light fruity hop character. Bitterness is quite light with just a touch of resinous character on the back. Lightly peachy. Meh – not my kind of IPA.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JUN 23, 2013 CO2 and cask tried on separate visits. Has a magnificent cloudy orange haze from the tap. Crisp and frothy, dank, bitter, dry, really wonderful in all aspects. Spicy pine needles invite the nose, fresh dryhopped crisp juiciness lingers on the tongue. Pungent and dank, with fresh crisp citrus and melon. Near perfect IPA.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
2012-08-17. Orange body with a small beige head. Modest aroma, sort of hoppy, earthy caramel malt. 6+ Flavour is pale ale like, modest hops, modest bitterness with a kiss of smokey earthy character if you look hard for it (which I was since I was originally told it was a rauchbier! So perhaps discount that a bit). Average bodied palate. Decent, I am very curious to know if I would have scored it higher know what it was at the time! Growler, Campground Brewdown 2012
