DocLock (8054) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 16, 2013
Draft at Craft Ale House. Poured hazy dark straw with off-white head. Nose was bready pale malt, hopcitrus, Simcoey hops, with some citric and funky notes. Tasted complex, dense on the palate, very hoppy, citric, with mid-palate funky notes and a solid pale malt flavor. This one was very good.

boxofrane (2259) - Spring City, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 10, 2013

dpjuart (1088) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 30, 2013
3/2/13 - Draft at Champs. Pours orange/red with creamy white head, good lacing and lingering. Grassy and herbal nose, citrus notes. Nice caramel back bone, mild bitter lingering well into the after. Earthy, grassy hop flavor, mild lemon, orange. Nice little IPA.

EithCubes (5091) - New Jersey, USA - MAR 22, 2013
Tap. Huge, bustling hoppy nose, grapefruit and heavy orange and even good base malt. Really bringing out the goodness of the rind. Pours gradient golden with a sticky off-white head. Taste is lightly sweet and medially bitter, beautiful rounded hoppiness, sticky with resin, but smooth and non-aggressive (hah), alcohol is about right, clean medium body. Super, super quaffer when fresh.

BMMillsy (1524) - Florida, USA - FEB 24, 2013
Draft at The Top. Pours golden with some red-orange hue. Smell is sweet citrus. Flavor is a nice crisp citrus flavor. More of an APA than IPA but a very nice beer. Easy drinking. Light n sweet. Slight hop flavor up front.

sailracer (413) - Massachusetts, USA - FEB 22, 2013
Tap. Medium hop aroma with some mild citrus aroma and taste. Not too bitter at first, but it built up over awhile and lasted quite long on the tongue.

4.7
   AROMA 10/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 9/10   PALATE 5/5   OVERALL 19/20
nealm759 (34) - Georgia, USA - FEB 10, 2013
Pours an amber clear with an inch to inch and a half of pure white head out of a growler into a home brew glass. Aroma is very citrusy and grassy, smells just like fresh centennial or cascade hops. Definitely smells like it was dry hopped very well, also comes through in the finish. Flavor is also citrus and grass, kind of has a simcoe like flavor, a little skunky, in a good way. Very hoppy but not overly bitter. Malt flavor is small but still some what present. Finish lingers the taste of delicious hop aroma that almost coats the tongue. Over all this is a delicious ipa that I would definitely suggest to any hop head and will definitely buy again, if I can find it.

Gachupines (954) - USA - FEB 7, 2013
Clear golden color with a thin white head. Aroma is strong citrus hops. Flavor is very hop forward without too much balance. It’s a bit green with a slight oily bitterness in the finish. Pretty nice IPA though.

3.7
   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 15/20
dogfishho (599) - Bloomfield, New Jersey, USA - FEB 4, 2013
Pours bright gold with a thick white head. The aroma is earthy and peppery... full of hops without much malt balance. The palate is better balanced however. There are notes of caramel underneat the juicy pepper and earth hop flavors. Nice IPA.
