Amber pour. The nose is light and fairly sweet. Has some sweet
maltiness and a little bit of bitterness. Lightly peppery and a little
bit sweet. Pretty typical.

Bonused, thanks a ton! Bottle pour is hazy orange with white head, not lacing extremely well. Aroma has nice pine, resin, grassy notes, some slight grapefruit along with sweet bread, caramel notes. Taste is some pine, resinous hops, some slight bitter grapefruit, leading to sweet biscuit, caramel, touch of earth, finishing slightly bitter. Nice IPA.

Bottle. Pours golden orange with a white head. Earthy and herbal hops, and sweet toffee malts. Not that good, or perhaps old.

Courtesy of dkachur. Pours clear copper with gold edges and off white head. The aroma is pine mixing with caramel, sweet malts and a bit of esters that smell like cherry candy. The taste is full with a malty sweetness mixing with pine hop flavor and then moving toward modest hop bitterness and a sense of dark tea. For an IPA the hops are a little too subtle but tasty brew nonetheless.

Bottle thanks to cavie. Pours with a hazy amber body and a fading off-white head. Aroma of light citrus and caramel. Taste is bitter and hoppy with some lemon/citrus and caramel. Medium carbonation. Did not notice the alcohol.

Tried a sample at Brewfest Tallahassee. One of their better, but I wasn’t impressed much by their stuff. A decent American hop presence in the aroma and flavor, but hopheads will be disappointed.

I heard a rumor about this beer. I heard it was either trying to base itself on the old "New River Pale Ale" that was discontinued a few years back (sadly). Whether or not it’s true, I know that for me, this one beer is at least a good replacement, always awaiting the return of the real deal. Aroma is hops, citrus, florals. Flavor is crisp, clean bitter, hoppy, touch of malts. Very nice!
