Hanuta06 (379) - Washington, USA - JUN 8, 2013
Serving: from bottle--purchased at Full Throttle Bottles. Aroma: moderate floral hops. Appearance: small, frothy off-white, initial head with fair lacing and fully diminishing longevity. Hazy, light-amber body. Taste: lightly sour, grapefruit-like, initial flavor and lightly bitter finish with long duration. Palate: medium bodied with dry texture and soft carbonation. Overall: excellent. Great hoppy aroma, but not excessively bitter.

Drank from a sampler glass at the Electric City Craft Brew Fest. Strong aromas of hops, strong taste of hops, not much else. Your normal everyday IPA.

A really delicious ipa. Pours a bright shimmering orange. Aromas of fresh oranges. Really nice. Bitter citrus rind flavours happening throughout on this one. Fantastic.

Ratebeer #1,000 woo! Draft sample at Cherry Blossom Beer & Wine fest, clear golden-amber color with off-white head. Aroma notes of strong citrus/pine hops, tropical dankness, somewhat earthy balanced with caramel malt sweetness. Taste carries on the hop punch of the nose; grapefruit, resin, herbal and almost putrid earthiness balanced with malt graininess. Medium body, low-moderate carbonation, oily, dry with long lingering fruity/earthy hop bitterness. Very tasty.

madvike (3044) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - APR 10, 2015
Can - Pours amber with a foamy off-white head. Nose is pine, grapefruit, and dank onion hoppiness. Lots of malt too--itís pretty bready and a little sweet. Taste is the same--a pine/citrus/onion hop mix, lots of bready malt, and a bit of boozy astringency that I really hate in IPAs. Medium-bodied and oily, with gentle carbonation. Too bready and boozy for my tastes.

Very good IPA. Pours a clear gold-copper, with smallish head. Strong aroma of hops, citrus. Very bitter flavor, pronounced hops, lots of citrus, with pine and grass. Crisp, clean mouthfeel with bitter finish.
