Evolutionary (391) - Ohio, USA - AUG 4, 2012
Bottle from Ty's house. Pine nose and medium body. Sweet citrus overtones with too much pine shining thru. Slightly below average ipa but still drinkable. ---Rated via my mouth

Ernest (6729) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUL 19, 2012
Bottle. Head is initially average sized, frothy, off-white, mostly lasting. Body is medium amber. Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (caramel, grain/husks), moderately hoppy (resin), with light notes of celery and detergent. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter, slightly husky. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation, lightly alcoholic. Kind of plain with some dirty/rough edges, but a bit better than normal for this brewery.

jtd6628 (359) - North Carolina, USA - JUN 18, 2012
I would get something else if I had the choice. The aroma in nice hoppy a little sweet the color is orange to brown. The taste is really sweet and conflicting a lot of competing going on. Taste reminds me of sweet tea.

jkwood04 (4786) - Connecticut, USA - JUL 8, 2012
12oz bottle. Aroma of citrusy hops and caramel and pale malts. Flavor strong of the hops. Average texture. A good IPA.

TreborWhip (393) - Reading, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 9, 2012
Bottle pours amber with tan head. Aroma of sweet citrus and pine. Flavors dominated by ruby red grapefruit, grass, and pine. Sweeter than most IPAs but a decent straight forward IPA nonetheless.

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 2/5   OVERALL 13/20
brenn79 (1725) - Idaho, USA - JUL 14, 2012
12 oz. bottle- Pours hazy dark golden with a thin off white head. The aroma is piney hops and sweet malt. The taste is dirty dishwater malty, hops, not my style of IPA, I like more hoppy and less malty. Body is a little thin. Average.

r464 (2044) - Earth, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 28, 2012
A fairly balanced IPA. Certainly lots of hops, but a toffee like, malty base is there as well. Full finish.

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 13/20
blipp (6974) - San Diego, California, USA - JUN 30, 2012
Bottle. Amber orange with an off white head. Piney, herbal, and earthy, with just a little bit too sweet of a malt profile. Good bitterness, but the hop profile isn’t especially inviting. Not bad, though.

kdm1984 (813) - Missouri, USA - JUN 30, 2012
Pick Axe - aroma is the piney, grapefruit, caramel malt smell common to many IPAs. Initially, it’s a little more butterscotch/diacetyl than I’d like, but the grapefruit stands out more the more you sip and swish around the contents. Head is fairly small; lacing minimal. Taste is nice grapefruit with mostly pleasing hoppy finish, though there is also a trace of skunk-funk (my term for something oddly vegetal and skunky that I find in some IPAs, either aroma or flavor-wise - first experienced it in Abita Jockamo - I wonder what causes this phenomenon?). Anyway, still a mostly good balance of sweet malts and hops. Medium-bodied with good texture. Liked this more than I was figuring I would based on the modest appearance and varying aroma. Decent IPA.

kaser (4084) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 17, 2012
Pours a cloudy dark orange with very little head. Grapefruit and citrus flavors. Smooth with mild hops and malts. Good IPA. Nothing spectacular but would have it again
