This IPA pours a light orange gold color from a 12oz bottle. Medium sized white foamy head. Aroma is floral and citrus with a touch of sweetness. A medium to lighter bodied IPA. Malts are caramel, fruity and sweet. Hops are floral and citrusy. Mildly bitter IPA. Perhaps a little thin but a very decent IPA. It’s a little mild in comparison to most PNW IPAs but not bad. Aroma is soft and full. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

Bottle. Nose is citrus and grapefruit. Clean. Maybe a little too malt forward for my liking.

foosnbrews (144) - Parker, Colorado, USA - MAR 24, 2014
Awesome pine, citrus, dank aroma. Low malt, low esters. Beer poors hazy gold with a persistent white head. Good malt presence, but bitterness dominates flavor appropriately. Surprisingly low hop flavor, but grapefruit flavors come through. Medium body, drying texture, very lively, and a nice bitter finish. Overall a very approachable IPA with great aroma and supporting malt

On tap poured a hazy golden-orange hue w/ a small white head. Moderate floral aroma. Initial flavor is light sweet w/ a moderate bitter finish. Tastes are orange citrus, straw, and mellon. Medium bodied, avg carbonation, and watery mouthfeel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

berkshirejohn (4204) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 23, 2014
12oz bottle from Georgio’s Liquors, Billerica, MA, ABV 6.5%. Amber with a creamy head; the aroma has caramel and spicy hops; the taste is similar with the herbal hops offsetting the sweetness of the caramel nicely; before a dry finish, with some resinous hops and warmth in the background. Rather good and certainly English in style, but reminding me of a good ESB rather than an IPA.

From a 12 oz bottle shared in Park CIty UT. Pours a clear gold with an off white lacey head. Fruity hop nose. Flavors of light citrus and some biscuit. Medium bodied, short bitter finish.

Hanan (70) - NW Phoenix, Arizona, USA - JAN 15, 2014
6r from total wine. Cold mug first then out if bottle. Taste excellent blend of hops and goodness. Aroma lingers too much grapefruit. Hint of piney. Rather have more piney less grapefruit. Could use more hops bit defeats 6.5 abv. Solid for abv but again, less grapefruit needed. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

doboy (416) - Morehead City, North Carolina, USA - JAN 12, 2014
Pours a cloudy amber with a mild hop aroma. Little to no head retention. Nice flavor of hops initially, with good mouth feel. Good hop bitterness on the back side. Not a bad beer!

Orange beer. Thin white head. Floral aroma. Generally sweet, light fruit (peach) and carmel flavors. Little hop tang at the end, but no real bitterness.
