COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A west coast-style IPA with golden-amber color, rocky white head, and a big, citrusy character with notes of fresh oranges from both the abundance of American hops and the addition of Sweet Orange Peel to the brew. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of this beer will benefit Operation Homefront (www.operationhomefront.net), an organization that provides emergency financial and other assistance to the families of our service members and wounded warriors.

Draft. Pours clear orange with a medium sized white head. The aroma is spicy, with grapefruit and light florals. Taste is light bitter spicy, and kicks the palate a bit. Very nice.

Dark golden body, medium sized white head, soapy lacing. Nose and flavor show citric, grassy and floral hops. Lightly sweet malt comes through a bit. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, pleasant bitterness in the finish. A solid, well-rounded IPA.

On tap at Beer Market. Pours a hazy orange with a thick white head. Aroma of perfume, bubble gum, caramel malt. Flavor also pretty heavy of the bubble gum, also some light fruits, caramel malt, and grassy hops. A little odd, as the bubble gum tastes pretty strong to me, but it’s not bad either. 7/4/6/3/13 (3.3/5)

draft at Mad Mex Robinson. My kind of ipa, hoppy aroma with grassy, earthy notes. Pours amber with a creamy white head. Flavor of grassy hops, citrus (I guess the orange) balanced of sweet malty taste. Medium body, bitter dry finish.
