Too me, this was the perfect drinkable (more than just one) IPA. I love Hops and this beer is the perfect balance of strong hops and flavor without overpowering the overall balance of the beer. Just wish I could get more in NC!

APA not this is an IPA...if I were to rate this on style...booo. But it is such a phenomena grass white pepper aroma kills it. Flavor is crisp and dry with a hop presence that lingers throughout. My fav

libertine (249) - rochester hills, Michigan, USA - JAN 27, 2015
pours amber with a thick white head. nice lacing. aroma is citrus hops, caramel and orange. taste very clean and crisp. finishes nice and dry. Not at all what I was expecting but in a very good way. This thing would be even more outstanding on a hot summer day. Unfortunately is Michigan in the end of January.

coombuyah26 (11) - Youngstown, Ohio, USA - JAN 25, 2015
12 oz. bottle bough from the Thee Floyds brewpub in Munster, IN, bottled 3 days before opening. Pours a nice orangey-amber color with a thin head that left some cool lacing patterns on the top of the beer after it dissipated. First thing on the nose is citrus, followed by a myriad of notes, mostly in the piney and fruity range. Smells amazing. Flavor is well balanced, a lot going on in the flavor profile. It starts out with citrusy and piney hops which give way to bready malt flavors on the back end. Nice to see a beer get this much hype that isn’t just a total hop bomb.

Had on tap at 3 Floyds. Flavors of citrus/grapefruit, pine, caramel and malt. Nice slight hop finish. Solid pale ale.

Shot (196) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - JAN 18, 2015
On tap at Pies & Pints. Golden red with a thin white head. Aromas so pine and citrus. Nice malty backbone with snappy pine, bitter citrus and biscuity notes.

nellycale (206) - Caledonia, Minnesota, USA - JAN 12, 2015
From bottle. Pours a dark amber hue with an average white head. Aroma of citrus, malty, and pine aroma. Taste of orange, grapefruit, pine, sweet malts, hint of caramel. Mouthfeel is light with light carbonation. Finish is bitter and dry. Well balanced pale ale, but I typically like the cleaner finish. Lose some of the malt flavor and this could be top 5 IMO. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

backdaft (244) - Menasha Red Light District, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 7, 2015
From notes... Pours a deep orange color with a thick off white head. Ripe citrus and floral hops dominate both the aroma and taste. Wonderful. Some resin and caramel malt balance round this out well. Medium bodied with a dry crisp finish. Very enjoyable!
