Pint on tap. It’s dark yellow, clear, and has good lacing. Bitter, bitter bitter, though. I kind of disagree with the description...I didn’t find it exceptionally malty or complex, actually. Kind of a basic IPA, just fine, but you’re not missing anything.

Fritz123 (809) - Boca Raton, Florida, USA - AUG 11, 2013
Bottle at D’Agnese’s Trattoria in Akron, OH. Draft in American shaker. Orange-golden yellow pour with thick, lasting white head. Very nice aroma with significant pine, resin, floral, and citrus. Taste similar with the pine and resin dominant. Bitter, but floral finish. Very well balanced with the malts. Medium body, medium carb. Crisp finish.

12 ounce bottle. Pours a hazy golden copper with a thin light tan head. Taste is of malt, caramel, hops, pine, resin, citrus and some warming alcohol. Similar aroma. Well balanced. Has a nice body and finishes on the dry side. Easy to drink and rater enjoyable.

Bottle. I usually end up rating about the same as everyone else, but I am far from think this is a 97. Maybe I will have to try again, but this one was unforgettable and the taste was slightly off...maybe the heavy malt profile instead of hops? Nope this one was not for me.

Thisis12ptfont (782) - Los Angeles, CA, California, USA - FEB 24, 2012
Citrussy, lemon hops with hints of grapefruit on the aroma. Pours a light gold with almost no foam. Leafy/earthy hop taste with a nice grapefruit finish. Fair amount of carbonation with a decent hop flavor. Overall, a pretty decent India Pale Ale with a moderate hop taste. C+ rating
