Had this on tap at World of Beer, thanks to raveskdr. Poured a clear golden hue, with a small-sized white head. Aroma was herbal hops, citrus, and some sweet malts. Flavor was hoppy notes, sweet malts. Pretty refreshing, solid brew - not too sweet.

Tasted on tap at the Bistro 12th Annual IPA Festival on 8/8/09. This IPA pours a medium orange gold color from the tap. Small to medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is grapefruity and floral. A medium bodied IPA. The malts are orange and fruity. The hops are grapefruity and citrusy. Good carbonation. Nice balance. A medium bitter IPA. Nice crisp finish. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and crisp. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

on tap at black back, waterbury. unclear bright golden pour with a creamy and ffrothy whtie head offering excellent retention and strong lacing. bright citrus, whole cones, herbal-grassy nobleness, gentle pine, weed, very lightly toasted maltiness - specialty, lagering fruitiness surprisingly making its way through the massive fragrant hop bill - peaches, apricots, clementines. average carbonation, light body - oily, surprisingly dry and crisp citrusy-herbal-grassy finish. balanced and very tasty. my first non-BA or perhaps hoppy lower abv brew from the bruery - for the third time, i’m surprised if not flabbergasted. dangerous drinkability.

UPDATED: JUN 25, 2014 Sampled on draft at the House of 1000 Beers this beer poured a murky apricot color with a medium sized creamy orange-white head that lingered and left good lacing. The aroma was very strong sweet peach, apricot, orange and fruit cocktail. The flavor was very strong peach, apricot, pineapple, orange and fruit cocktail. Turns a bit dry and harsh then follows with a long finish of peach, apricot, pineapple and fruit cocktail. Thick and full bodied. Outstanding!

Growler thanks to Will. Pours a clear gold with small frothy white head that lasts. The aroma is strong wheat grass and corn. Medium mouthfeel with nice wheat grass, floral hop lingering bitter finish. Yes.

Beer Bloggers Conference - San Diego - Big hoppy lager. I get the hops I get the lager. It is rich full of hoppy flavors.

On tap at the brewery in August 2009. Poured a dark golden with a nice wheat head and a decent amount of lacing as it went down. The smell and taste were both fantastic. Loads of citrus hops, mostly orange; also, a bit of some tropical fruits. The taste went along very similar lines, with the addition of a nice bitterness that nicely balanced out the citrus and tropical flavors. The mouthfeel was a bit light and exceptionally drinkable. Very delicious--hopefully they bottle this. Serving type: on-tap Reviewed on: 01-27-2010

Nice hoppy nose with somewhat of a preserved malt base. Despite the lagering, the elements seem to work well in preservation here. Pours gold with ok head and lacing. Finishes with light bitterness and a tough of sugary sweetness. Some booze evident. Tap at Boundary Road.

I thought I have already tried this, but Im finally rating it. Pours a semi cloudy golden color, with an off white head. Citrus, grassy, piney hops, doughy bread, and some sweetness. A simple, drinkable beer. Good thirst quencher.

An eleven for the aroma. Like biting a fresh hop. Truely the epitome of this new IPL category, the hops are citrusy and floral and linger around just the right amount. The flagship beer of this newish style.
