Can from Brennan’s. Pours a pale orange with a white head. Aroma has citrus and pine. Taste is of grapefruit, fresh fruits and pine. Somewhat resinous but quite light and crisp. Finishes bitter and sweet. Seems very sessionable.

deekyn (1166) - San Francisco, California, USA - JUL 21, 2014
A- pours a clear gold with a white head and terrific lacing. S- some usual suspects bit they burst from the glass. Great citrus from bitter orange, lemon zest to some passion fruit. These tickle then back of the nose especially towards the end. Dough and cracker malts are abundant with some rich and sweet smelling wet pine. M- body seems light for this beer but it has a good tackiness to it. T- citrus comes through again with the orange and ruby red grapefruit leading the way. Sourdough bread and pine mingle in the middle with some mineral and sharp grassy quality. Minimal amounts of earth in there towards the clean and quenching end.

Can. Pours bright yellow with a big fuzzy here looking head. Nice floral nose. Creamy body with a tart bite and a bit of malt on the end. Highly carbonated. Decent and drinkable.

Ibrew2or3 (6835) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - JUN 12, 2014
Poured up on tap at the brewpub where there’s a clear copper body that supports a nice looking off white head. The aroma offers up a mix of grapefruit, a dash of pine hops and faint sweet maltiness. The taste begins with firm up front pine hop bitterness that’s blended with bitter tangelo and grapefruit like citrus hops. It builds into mild malt and malt sweetness to midway that helps enhance a modest citrus hop flavor note. This is a nice bitter hop forward brew where there’s still some balance to go along with the firm, late ’90’s feel to the hop profile.

WVHouseofBeer (801) - Kissimmee, Florida, USA - JUN 2, 2014
Excellent prototypical American IPA. Nice piney nose. Bitter grapefruit and citrus flavors balanced nicely with the slightly sweet malt backbone. Deep orange color. Medium bodied. Very good beer.

harrymel (1496) - Spokane, Washington, USA - APR 21, 2014
Best by 15MAY14 Pours a golden ale with a fine, broken sheet of whites. Smells good and dank, some grapefruit, some BO, some resin; a little sweet malt in the background. Flavor is nice and balanced with a vitamin character. Sweet tangerines, some lemon rind, some papayas and a good crackery malt. Medium bodied with light on moderate carb. Good stuff.

sebletitje (6624) - Enghien, BELGIUM - APR 19, 2014
Can via trade courtesy of BuckeyeBoy, tks Jeremy. De couleur dorée sur un col blanc moyen. Arôme est houblonné à la frontière du résineux et du pin (Simcoe?) avec un fruité en rétro nasal de Columbus ponctué par de petites effluves tropicales. Palais est axé sur les houblons qui brillent par leur profile. Palais est sec, note de pin, sève, malté léger avec une fin de bouche légère de caramel. Note douce arrive en retrait apportant un rappel de fruit de la passion.

Draft at the brewery. Pours clear amber with a fizzy white head. Tastes hoppy, sweet, like orange, pine, musk. Light/medium body and low carbonation. Smells like musky, sweaty, pine and light citrus.

arminjewell (6150) - Farmington Hills, Michigan, USA - FEB 25, 2014
Pour out of 12 oz can, slightly hazy orange pour with white head, aroma brought notes of big lemon, earth, spice, hints of pine, touch of tropical fruit in there as well. Taste is a mix of tropical fruit, lemon, orange, hints of biscuit, bread, slight earth, finishing with some spice. Pretty nice.

12 oz can. Thanks Ed. Gold, slight haze, white head. Aroma is huge, fruity, juicy-citrus hops with a little pine. Flavor is fairly dry, bready/biscuit malt, piney hops, slight grassy note, lingering bitterness. Very easy drinking. Nice.
