emacgee (4376) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - JUL 12, 2012
Shared by turdferguson. Pours a cloudy soft peachy yellow with a sticky white head. Nose is interesting, hard to describe. Some piney and citrusy notes with a juicy/tropical quality. Definitely some tropical and ephemeral fruits in the flavor with a lightly candyish quality. Slightly soapy too, but soap I want to drink if that makes sense. Light to medium in body with a dry finish.

Nickls (1974) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - NOV 7, 2012
Tap. Clear light yellow orange with a nice frothy head that leaves nice curtainy lacing. Very bright grapefruit at first in the aroma, some wild onion and breadiness as well. The wild onion note is less present in the flavor, but still retains nicely aggressive hops with citrus and slight pine. Medium softer body.

obguthr (4589) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - JAN 6, 2013
Can from adnielsen. Thanks! Rich grapefruit nose with a equally strong malty notes of honey and caramel approaching butterscotch. Cloudy amber thin head. Medium body. Hop forward with grapefruit dominant, but not without a honey malt base. Grassy toward the end. Fantastic aroma, and enjoyable flavor. Very solid.

Can. Golden, hazy, average and mostly diminishing head. Moderate, malty and lightly sweetish - sweetish aroma, some caramel and tropical fruitiness with piney - som grapefruit hoppyness. Body is medium, malty and lightly sweetish flavor, light caramel and tropical fruitiness with piney - some grapefruit hoppyness. Finish is average, malty and lightly sweetish, light caramel and tropical fruitiness, lots of piney - light grapefruit hoppyness. Well hopped IPA, could be bit drier with less caramel. Nice IPA though.
