Bottle: The aroma consists of moderate-heavy citrus, pineapple, pine, and grapefruit. It pours a transparent gold with a small white head. The flavor starts with a quick dose of citrus and tropical fruits. The finish has moderate pine and a touch of grapefruit. It’s light-medium bodied with mild carbonation. Overall, a really nice IPA.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a hazy dark gold with a bug foamy white head that lingers. Citrus aroma, of orange zest, hops, and a hint of grapefruit. Taste is bitter and smooth, starts a bit floral and orangey, then picks up a big hoppy bitterness and bready yeast, with some creamier malt and sugar. Lingering bitterness. Nice IPA.

Bottle to dogfish head IPA glass. Light gold with a slight haze and a frothy off-white head. Spicy hops, orange and a slight skunk in the aroma. Piney upfront and finishes with some biscuit and grains. Really spicy. Nice and light.

GABF 2012. Yellow. Bright hop aroma with a fresh hop aroma, like a wet-hop ipa, with a floral character. One of the better IPAs I had at GABF.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On draft at GABF 2012. Pours a hazy orange with a white head. Nose is a nice light malt with a bit of citrus and a big punch of Zythos bitterness and grassiness. Flavor is similar with citrus up front and a big hop punch. The finish is somewhat abrasive, but the initial flavor is nice. Medium in body and interesting at first.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampled at GABF. Pours a hazy gold with some creamy head. Hoppy nose, some malt sweetness, a little sugary, a little yeasty, clean. Sweet, malty flavor, honey, pine, orange, lemon. Medium bodied, zesty finish. Nose could be better, but otherwise this is nice.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at GABF 2012 in Denver. Pours a clear golden color with a medium white head. A big nose of pine and fruit. The flavor is a light refreshing brew with lots of bitter hops, light citrus, a bit unbalanced perhaps. Smooth. Green.
