Hops are clean and expressive. Malt flavor is light but very appealing. Some sweetness balances light bitterness creating an easy and accessible balance. Finish is long and complex.

12oz bottle pour, pretty fresh. Golden body, with a minimal white head. Decent lacing. Moderately bitter, with some fruit and malt undertones. Definitely tasted the malts as it warmed. Good sour finish, pretty solid IPA!

Nice, citrusy IPA. Not nearly as good as this brewery’s "Hop Rising" Double IPA, but still enjoyable. Slightly buttery mouth-feel, with more kick at the back-end. Aroma matches the flavor. This has slightly less flavor as it warms and becomes more watery.

Grapefruit hop aroma and flavor; some tangerine-like flavor, too. Light malt flavor: cereal, light caramel, mildly sweet. Moderate bitterness.

Beerman6686 (4170) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 11, 2013
This poured a lighter orange color with an off white head. Aroma was of grassy and herbal hops with light caramel notes. Flavor was fairly bitter, medium citrus notes and some caramel sweetness. Think this would have been better if a little fresher.
