Draft at the brewery’s tasting room. Bright and full of amber-orange color and well topped with a creamy head. This drinks with all the characteristics you’d expect of a dry-hopped IPA, rolling with some good citric flavors, finishing clean and dry. Well done. (#4817, 11/10/2012)

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draft at Oceans and Ale in Williamsburgh. A nice golden orange that has some haziness. A creamy orange hued foam. Only a little nose but it seems to be citrus. Pine flavors with caramel first. Citrus fruit after that. Grapefruit bitterness. This seems fresh. A hint of cinnamon spice. Midglass I begin to taste tropical fruit. This is well done..

I’m a local. This beer is fantastic coming out of Norfolk VA. Nice dry, citrus hops. Similar to many California IPA s. Its very drinkable. Enjoy. Cheers!

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Growler fill from Aw Shucks. Poured a medium orange, slight haze, slight but lasting head. Big pine and grapefruit hop aroma, with a resinous note. Biscuity body is enough to hold up against a huge hop finish, loads of pine, grapefruit, and tangerine citrus. Lingering bitterness. An aggressive IPA - I liked this - and I have high hopes for this brewery.

Where and how: taster @ brewery
Aroma refreshing, crisp, hoppy nose. Aromatic play but all in bolder balance. Nice west coast feel. Grapefruit. Citrus with sweet malts. Gentle hint of vanilla.
Top: lighter white crown, sparse lace.
Base: amber gold.
Palate : milder carbonation, medium bodied.
Taste: lemon grass, soft citrus, tartness with sweet filling malts. Herbal, citrus feel was more dominant than rough green bitterness. Nice.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle to glass. Pours a clear deep amber color with a thin off-white head. Aroma is light citrusy floral resin hops. Flavor is moderately bitter, with a mild caramel malt background. Light to medium in body with a lingering flavorless bitterness. Okay, but nothing special.
