Draft sample at MBGSF 2013. Poured a clear copper color with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate sour citrus and earthy aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. My expectations where met.

Gold/apricot tinged pour. Aroma is fruity as hell and then loads of spruce and resiny hops! Flavor is spruce, resin, light orange notes. Nice beer at GABF.

I think it is a solid beer. Def tastes like your standard heavily-hopped ipa with orange and citrus.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft pour at GTMW 2013. Pours a clear orange-amber color with a small eggshell white head. Notes of citrus (orange and grapefruit mostly), florals, caramel, pine resin, and tropical fruits. Light-bodied, with a dry, hoppy, crisp, clean mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. Nice change of pace. Good supper IPA.

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.

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.

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.

Bottle to pint (thanks mikem409). Looks good for the style; a transparent orange with foamy white head that dissipates into lacing. Smells solid; hoppy with a lagerish backbone (and a bit of dough). Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. Enjoyable.
