Can. Pours a dark amber wit a high, creamy, large-grained off-white head. Nose is a nice balance of floral and citrus, with orange and hollyhock predominant. Bitter on the front of the tongue, but with an oddly hollow mid-palate. I just donít get much beyond the initial burst of hops. Finish is light and a bit flaccid. Enh.

halfonit (1186) - Fall River, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 7, 2012
On tap at battleship. The beer pours a clear golden orange with a white head. Aroma is quite floral with a little bit of grass and pine. Slightly sweet malt aroma, mostly bread. The flavor is moderately sweet without a ton of hop flavor either. Itís mostly grass and line with a touch of floral hops and citrus peel. Light to medium bodied with medium carbonation. Nice and crisp IPA..

12oz can at DMK. Pours a clear amber color with a white head and some lacing. Aroma is hoppy, pine, some orangy citrus. Medium on the palate with average carbonation. Flavor is sweet, malty, bready, biscuit, muted citrus hops, some pine, some grass, with a light bitter finish that lingers for a little while. A nice IPA.

HeistAlmighty (1155) - Saint John, New Brunswick, CANADA - JUN 21, 2014
355ml bottle. Looked unfiltered. Citrus and pine aromas. Citrus hop taste, reasonably well balanced with some caramel malt. Average body. Nothing ground breaking, but a solid workhorse IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Boliv (1149) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 11, 2013
Bottled 6/09/12. Enjoyed on IPA day! Pours orange with a small off-white meringue-y head. Citrus zest aroma with sugary orange, papaya, grapefruit rind, and pine. The flavor is sweet citrus and pine, bitter earthy notes of bark and dirt, with a bitter citrus pith finish. Verging on creamy, with a dry finish. Nice. [1125]
