12oz bottle from Whole Foods in Greenville, SC. Copper-orange pour with a fluffy light tan head. Aroma of toasty malt, caramel, candy. Tastes on the sweet malty side also - with citrus and light pepper. Floral and slightly astringent in the finish. 6.0

AWISLguy (1695) - Wisconsin, USA - JAN 3, 2014
Bottle from Total Wine in Stuart. Pours a golden orange with a white head leaving some nice lacing. Aroma has heavy sour fruits, with citrus and toffee. Somewhat earthy. Taste is of grapefruit, lemon zest, crystal malts and some sour fruits. Medium bodied and dry. Finishes bitter with some sourness. No date on the bottle so hoping it is just old and not bad. Not a fan.

UPDATED: FEB 18, 2015 It’s a good IPA, it just doesn’t seem all that original or different from what’s currently out there. Lots of good grapefruit flavor and a darker hue. That’ s about all that’s worth pointing out.

Very average IPA. It’s OK (except for some cardboard quality) but nothing distinguishing about it all.

Welcoming citrus aroma, amber medium bodied with sharp bitterness and caramel malt backbone. Textbook well built India Pale Ale.

The beer looked quite nice, with a clear, orange-amber body, and a large head. The smell was too mild for the style, with perfumey hops and toasted malts. The taste was quite bitter, with a metallic tang. There was caramel malt besides the hop bitterness, and not much else. The finish was very dry. The beer was among a mixed six pack of IPA’s I picked up at the store last week. I doubt I will go back for this one again very soon. It wasn’t bad, just not memorable.

BeerandBlues2 (10700) - San Diego, California, USA - SEP 14, 2013
Bottle. Pours clear amber with a medium, frothy white head, medium retention with good lacing. Aroma is toast malt, citrus and pine hops. Flavor is heavy hops and bitterness with supporting malt and a dry finish. Medium body and carbonation.

pineypower (2723) - Pine Barrens, New Jersey, USA - SEP 12, 2013
Bottle from Roger Wilco. Pours out a muddy copper color with a moderate off white head. Aroma is of old vegetables, fresh cut grass and caramel, yuck. Taste is equally as odd, one dimensional grassy hops, caramel, cardboard, light sweet citrus bitterness.

12oz bottle. Pours a deep golden color with frothy creamy white head. Grassy and floral hop aroma. Interesting flavor- bitter as you would expect from an IPA, but some roasted malt flavor as well. Pretty good.
