On tap at Palmer Place in Lagrange, IL. Orange amber brew with off white head. Aroma of citrus, grapefruit. Taste was moderate malt at the start with a hops profile that matched the aroma. No complaints here.

Clear orange pour with a nice white head and great lacing. Aromais really nice sweet citrusy hops, a little toffee, and pine. Taste is pine up front with slight sweetness and then grapefruit in the finish. Nice bitterness. Medium light body. Good beer.

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.

Zymurgeist2 (1214) - Redwood City, California, USA - MAY 29, 2014
Grass and earthy hop aroma with a minor citrus hop hint in the back. Orange aroma comes out as it warms. Biscuity malt. Pours a clear orange with a full white head. Flavor leans toward a balance of citrus and sourdough bread malt. Moderate high bitterness and a sweet finish. As it warms, some alcohol warmth starts to show. Overall, a little underwhelming and not robust.

halfonit (1211) - 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..

Beautiful golden amber with a thick head. Lots of lacings. Pine and caramel aromas with bright citrus notes. Caramel body with moderate hop flavors and bitterness. Bitterness lasts thru the finish.

Near perfect. Drinking with jambalaya. Copper with incrdbly sticky white head. Aroma of hops and malt and citrus and more hops. Perfect creamy balance.
