radio_nowhere (1111) - Maryland, USA - JUN 23, 2015
Draft sample at Ale Mary’s in Scranton, PA; golden-amber color with off-white head. Aroma notes of pine/citrus hops, light spiciness and caramel malt sweetness. Taste adds citrus hop fruitiness (grapefruit, orange, some lemon), citrus zest and resin. Medium-light body, moderate-low carbonation, dry with lingering pine/citrus finish. Pretty solid west coast style IPA.

johnbuck100 (250) - Lancaster, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 15, 2015
On tap at BTS in DC. Hazy orange. Definitely hop forward but a bit astringent bitter bite. No prob with the bitterness but a bit harsh on the tongue. Decent, but does not rise to greatness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 ounce bottle. Pours a bright Amber orange with a moderate rocky beige. Nice lacing. Piney hop nose with grapefruit notes. Nice toasted caramel maltiness is balanced by the pine and grapefruit spicy hops. Some tropical fruit notes in mid taste. Finish is dry and complex. A very good West Coast IPA.

Wittales (701) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - APR 24, 2015
Appearance was hazy orangish gold with creamy diminishing off white 1 finger head, spotty lacing. Aromas are citrus fruits, sweet caramel malts with hints of pine and herbal wood. Taste are grapefruit, orange, lemon upfront then malty middle backbone. The woody, tobacco,leathery, pine sticky finish. Palate was soft smooth CO2 with medium body, then a lasting herbal woody citrusy finish. Overall a solid west coast IPA, needs a touch less wood finish for me.

patricks110 (2016) - Alberta, CANADA - APR 7, 2015
A nice heavy IPA with tons of grapefruit and lighter piney resin notes. Sweet caramel and biscuity malts that jbalance the hops well. Nice and crisp, bitter hop content with juicy fruits and sweet honey notes. A nice heavy hop brew with solid astringency.
