still gold, oily head, thinnest ring. Skunky dank nose, oily pine and cracker, heavy grapefruit. Flavor more oxidized and cheesy, thin and doughy with cardboard and piney orange through the end, light sugars but cloyingly thick body.

radagast83 (4445) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - SEP 28, 2013
Growler courtesy of nimbleprop, thank you! Poured a golden, clear color with a wispy head. Aroma was notes of light hops, grassy notes. Flavor was a real hoppy, fresh tasting beer. Pretty good, enjoyed the hop in this one.

@ Singlecut. Pours clear-ish golden with white head. Aroma is big on grapefruity hops. Also get some sweet orange in the nose. Taste brings more citrusy hops along with some caramel malt balance. Average palate and finishes bitter. Lingers decently. Had this one at the end of the night, so my rating isnít all that spectacular. Thought this was alright, though I think Iíd choose Dean over this.

j12601 (6584) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - AUG 10, 2013
Pouring at BCTC. Pours a just clear gold with a large white head. Big and musky on the nose, dusty citrus with lots of yeasty phenolics. Medium bodied, but thins out a touch. Piney bitterness over caramel sweetness. Long smooth quinine and grapefruit. Nicely balanced.

chronictonic (472) - Oreland, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 28, 2013
on tap Brooklyn Public House - Bright warm gold color with crisp white head. Great strongish hoppy aroma - piney and green grass like. Hops are the predominant flavor - both fresh green, chewy, resiny hops but also a great well balanced bitterness. Clean malt flavors keep it in check. Love this IPA - wish we could get it in Philly. Hate the phrase "sessional IPA" in the description though. To me, "session" should be 4.5% and under.

BrewBoxer (1886) - New York, New York, USA - JUN 19, 2013
Draft at the growler NYC. Pours a bright orange cloudy color with a thin head that lasts consistent and lace on the Aida as well. Has that very grassy hoppy smell but is very drinkable on the palate ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
