AirForceHops (2986) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - MAY 15, 2014
Draft @ The Ale house. Orange gold in color with a lasting cap of white head with lacing. Aroma is caramel malt and a steady amount of floral hops.

The flavor really opened my eyes more than I would have guessed. Lighter to medium body with a mild carbonation leaving a smooth mouthfeel. Grain in the main base of the body with lingering grass, pine resin and a light flower kick. Nice amount of flavor and can easily lead to more. They hit the target with this one!

Tmoney99 (10462) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 8, 2014
Draft. Poured clear golden color with an average white frothy head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate citrus hop and malt aroma. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. Good drinkable brew that met my expectations.

MrChopin (3220) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - APR 25, 2014
shimmering gold, wispy oil head, no lacing. Dusty pretzel nose, light floral, bit of orange sweetness but contained. More mango and oil through front, light dusty hay, finishing slick, dry and balanced. Not expressive enough but few flaws.

schefs26 (2) - - APR 14, 2014 does not count
Enjoying from growler poured in a pint. Incredible tasting IPA without the overpowering hoppiness. Carbonation makes it dance on your tongue. Almost a mix between the drinkability of a kolsch and the flavor of a traditional IPA.

Draft at haymarket, pours clear straw, nose is real Melony cantaloup, stone fruit. Fl really fruity, zesty, melon and lime, malt base has a touch of toast but otherwise clean and avoidant, really fruity - juicy fruit and red grapefruit juice, not very pleasant . 6/3/6/3/12

ross (2075) - weddington, North Carolina, USA - MAR 15, 2014
Draft. Yellow color with a white head. Aroma is heavy citrus, with a grape kind of smell. Taste is very similar to hop wallop without the burn. Not too bad really. Definitely unique.
