From the tap poured a copper color with a fair amount of head. Nice strong malty citrusy hoppy flavor with a quick finish.

j12601 (6584) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - JUN 3, 2012
On tap at Earth. Pours a clear amber with a medium to large beiged white head. Light musk, dusty hops, spicy malt on the nose. Musky, grainy phenolics, grassy. Medium bodied, caramel and grain. Malt, lots of sweet toast, tropical fruit and malt. Malt leads into a slow tropical fruit bitterness on the finish.

alobar (2761) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 20, 2012
On tap at brewpub. Pours a clear copper color with an aroma of hops, citrus, and grain. Hoppy flavor with some citrus, and grain. Dry finish.

michael-pollack (4960) - King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 18, 2012
Draught at Downingtown BrewPub: Aroma of malt, grain, hops, and a hint of florals. Poured pale yellow in color with small to medium-sized, creamy, dense, white head that greatly diminished but lasted throughout. Clear. Sparkling. Good lacing. Flavor is lightly sweet and lightly bitter. Tastes of malt, grain, diacetyl, slight butter, and a hint of hops. Light body. Slightly dry texture. Average carbonation. Lightly sweet, lightly bitter, malt, grain, slight hop finish is lightly dry. Really, an IPA?!?

Leafs93 (1668) - Clarks Summit, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 9, 2012
Pours copper with a white head that stuck around for a little. Aroma is floral, citrus and some pear. Taste was bitter with an almost acidic tartness. Medium bodied with some stickiness.

GT2 (8366) - San Diego County, California, USA - MAY 7, 2012
Tap at Victory. Light copper pour, sparkling, thick head retention. Nose is nicely complex: floral, biscuity, fresh, muted white grapefruit. Mostly biscuity pils malt. Taste is spot on- rich and quenching with silkiness and softness not seen in the style hardly ever. Amazing palate. Grassy, silky, bitter. Wow. Mild alcohol presence. Killer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

MrChopin (3258) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAY 6, 2012
Tap at pub, tried against the Bavarian Spalt, Bavarian Polaris, and Headwaters Pale Ale. Lightest of the three, most effervescent and appealing with lingering head. A lot of leafy earth qualities, lightly floral with considerable citrus and hay, a bit of vitamin C issues. More hoppy, less dry than the Spalt, but not nearly the balance or complexity, though still quite nice, light, and well-attenuated.

1) Bavarian Spalt
2) Headwaters Pale
3) Bavarian Mandarina
4) Bavarian Polaris

JAXSON (528) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 6, 2012
Pours a clear copper. Drank beside the other Bavarians and some of the standard pale ales, this is still very hop-forward, in fact the most singularly hoppy of the three special ones. More lingering leafy hop bitterness, the most dry and hop forward of the three. Floral, grainy but less so than Spalt and Polaris. Not quite as bright as I would have liked, I tend to appreciate balanced and brightness rather than lingering hop expression, but this is still very good.
