UPDATED: JAN 19, 2014 Very nice IPA from a local brewery. Pours a relatively clear golden yellow with nice sized, lasting head. Aroma full of fresh hops. Flavor is a good strong combination of bitter hops with citrus and a fairly smooth, sweet finish. Worth a try.

Bottle shared by b3shine. Poured clear golden color with an average frothy white head that lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy earthy hoppy aroma. Medium to full body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Moderate to heavy bittersweet flavor with a moderate to heavy bittersweet finish of medium to long duration. Very good brew.

22 oz. bottle shared by b3shine. Pours a clear golden amber color with a small white head. The aroma had a mild malt backbone, but is dominated by grapefruit citrus, resin and a splash of caramel. The flavor opens with a big grapefruit, resin, pine hop profile; caramel malts, moderately dry with a moderate bitterness. This is a solid IPA.

Bottled sample. Orange gold in colour with medium carbonation. Very floral aroma, with notes of orange blossom and grapefruit backed by notes of pale and mild caramel malt. Flavors are of grapefruit fresh cut prine, clean malt with a bit of pine sap and caramel. Medium bodied with a chunky bitterness. Really solid stuff.

Bomber to taster (thanks kbutler1). Looks solid; a transparent orange with fluffy white head. Smells good; hoppy with a malty backbone. Tastes like it smells with a good mouthfeel. A great example of the style.

Clear effervescent amber in color with a small lasting off white head. Adaquate lacing. Aromas of pine needles and citrus. Nothing extraordinary in an IPA, but very solid nonetheless.
