COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bright sunrise orange in color, this American IPA is boldly hopped with East Kent Goldings, Cascade and locally grown hop varieties to give an intense yet powerfully smooth bitterness. The subtle caramel maltiness only accents the citrus hop highlights. Dry hopped with an incredible 2-1/2 pounds per barrel, this American style IPA is handcrafted to be extraordinarily refreshing.

Sharp spicy pine with a firm caramel backbone in the nose is misleading. Sharp bitterness upfront but thin body with support from the malts. Finishes bitter and piney. A bit unbalanced.

Found some old rating notes from TapNY 2013 that somehow never got entered.
A solid IPA. Grapefruit/citrus fronted. Good other hop flavors as well.

From bottle. Aroma is citrus, grass and hops. Taste is citrus, pine and grapefruit. Hoppy and smooth. Decent mouthful. Bitter aftertaste. Overall very good ipa.

oddaroma (139) - Texas, USA - DEC 17, 2013
smooth, and light. Nice blend of powerful hop and maltiness. I could most likely kill a sixxer without thinking about it. Good IPA.

zach8270 (3585) - Henrietta, New York, USA - DEC 7, 2013
(draft @ Wagner Valley Brewing Company - Lodi, NY) Slightly hazy orange pour with a puffy white head. Mild hop aroma. Some citrus. Flavor is lightly hopped, not as dry as I would have thought, but has a nice citrus and juicy hop flavor. Finishes clean and lightly sweet.

Boldly hopped - very hoppy and bitter but a good drink. Bottle. Beer of the month hop lovers. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

boFNjackson (4176) - Portland, Oregon, USA - FEB 16, 2013
Bottle... Poured amber orange with a thin head. Earthy, mildly hoppy with minimal bitterness. Foamy mouthfeel. Some citrus, lemon zest, bready malts. Clean finish. Sort of one dimensional.

matt7215 (2231) - Cambridge, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 11, 2012
355ml bottle from wegmans in niagara falls. deep muddy orange, almost red, with almost no head but carbonated well. its certainly unfiltered and might be bottle conditioned. deep hop resin nose, big a sweet cara malt stickiness also, muddled. the flavour has to much cara malt but is hopped well. not a bad beer, just not my kind of ipa.

Strykzone (5074) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - NOV 6, 2012
Sampled at an esbls tasting. Coppery and clouded. Small foam. Nice and nig caramel and citrus aromas. Those are tasted, too. Bitterness is moderate. This is classic west coast territority. Nice.

bbbeer (592) - Massachusetts, USA - OCT 22, 2012
Clear gold-orange, small off white head. Aroma a mix of citrus/grapefruit and malty grains. Medium body. Mildly bitter. Flavor is a balance of citrus-like hops and malt, Not too complex or anything but a decent IPA.

mansquito (3578) - Nueva York, New York, USA - SEP 3, 2012
New Beer Distributors, NY 355ml ($1.25): Pours a pretty dark colour for an IPA. Aroma is caramel malt and a bit of hops. Taste is pretty much the same. The maltiness really takes things over pretty greedily. Hops are there, but the flavour is hardly stunning or anything.
