From a 12 bottle shared at home. Pours a fairly clear dark copper with a thick off white head. Citrus hop aroma. Flavors of orange, grapefruit zest, some pine notes, and some hints of light caramel. Full, carbonated mouthfeel. Nice IPA.

Light copper color with good lacing. Decent pine smell with some malt. Flavor is a very solid hop but yet kind of crisp and clean.. very decent IPA. Malta kinda sit on the palate a little bit after a while.

beerandbeyond (682) - ISRAEL - JAN 28, 2013
12oz bottle poured into a tumbler glass. Hazy light amber color with a small but steady head and nice lace. Piney spicy nose with lots of caramel malt and marmalade. Sweet malt flavor, candied citrus peels, high bitterness and juicy hop flavors. Full body, long bitter finish, some alcohol and not so easy to drink.

onceblind (4064) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JAN 27, 2013
Slightly hazy copper/bronze with a thin but lasting white head. Nose was plenty hoppy with pine resin, grass clippings, grapefruit rind, and a little sticky caramel. Flavor has some strong bitterness throughout tempered by some sweet caramel, but loaded with lots of hop oils of pine and resiny floral hops, and some grass, and some grapefruit rind. Not quite sweet enough to satisfy me, but plenty hoppy for a hop head.

sfontain (802) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JAN 27, 2013
12 oz bottle, Whole Foods Columbus. Copper-amber pour, lovely thick pillowy white head dissipates into a medium ring and retains gobs of lacing down the glass. Aroma exhibits lots of pine and citrus, bready. Flavor grassy, caramel, sharply bitter. Mouthfeel is medium, creamy, almost silky; nice. I donít think the malt -quite- stands up to the hops here and so I think this is a nice beer but I donít find the balance to be quite right. Tasty, though.

Solid IPA. Ram across it in my local bodega and picked it up. Very hoppy...very similar to the Raging Bitch IPA, which is another one of my favorites. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

dimenhetfield (2487) - , Florida, USA - JAN 27, 2013
12oz bottle poured into glass. Big hints of floral hops and grapefruit/citrus. Flavor is earthy and a tad grassy. Good balance between the hops and malts. Clean with a nice bitter finish.

deyholla (6633) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - JAN 26, 2013
Cask at the Atlanta Cask Ale fest. Pours a clear gold with a slight amber hue and a tan head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a combination of sweet grains and grassy hops with a hint of resin. Flavor has much more resin and pine up front that mellow to grass with a sweet grain backbone.

MrBunn (2457) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 25, 2013
Bottle. Pours a very clear gold with a very frothy head and lovel aromas of resin and citrus. Flavor is nice and crisp with a grain dust edge to it that kind of messes things up. Booze isnít really hidden very well either.

HopTsing (426) - Sandston, Virginia, USA - JAN 23, 2013
From the bottle poured a golden brew with a thin white head. Aromas of hops and malt hit your nose before you lift the glass to your mouth. Full bodied with malty sweetness and a nice hoppresence that lingers on the back of your tounge.
