jbruner (2502) - Athens, Georgia, USA - NOV 2, 2014
Pours a hazy golden brown on tap with dissipating white head that leaves little lace. Aroma is mostly malt with a hint of pine and floral hops. Taste follows, definitely an English style IPA. Mild bitterness, low carbonation, kind of bland.

kaser (3124) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 27, 2014
Dark Orange cloudy pour from draft at wedge brewery. White sticky head. Earthy tropical aroma. Big citrus tangerine and apricot taste. Perfect balance of hops bitterness and fruits. Love it

rosenbergh (7416) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 19, 2014
Draught at the Wedge, Asheville, NC. Hazy mid-brown colour with a tiny off-white head. Sweet malty and mild floral hoppy aroma with fruit tea like notes and lots of sweetness. The flavour is sweet, hoppy and malty. Mild bitterness. Very sweet. Way too sweet for me. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Keg @ Wedge during RBWG, Asheville. Amber? Pour with a small head. Very sweet nose. Accents of caramel and fruity esters. Oranges, pear fruit salad. The taste has some herbal hop bitterness. Dank. Very sweet concentrated fruits. Medium body, soft carbonation.

alexsdad06 (5906) - Ohio, USA - JUN 25, 2014
Draft at Wedge during RBWG. Pours a hazy orange color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have orange citrus, floral hops, toasted bread, mild caramel, a bit soapy, biscuits, just something missing from this.

TylerGreenDC (392) - - MAY 23, 2014
UPDATED: MAY 26, 2014 On draft. Beautiful rich copper color. A close cousin on Green Flash?s West Coast, same citrus hop bite and toasty chocolate malts. More tangerine on the finish. Superb.

phaleslu (6843) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 22, 2014
Draft in a taster at the brewery. Pours a cloudy orange color with a tiny white head. Notes of citrus fruits, tea, florals, grass, soap, and caramel malts. Light-bodied, with a resinous mouthfeel - though very clean - and moderate carbonation. Nice IPA, and Im normally not big on the more English style.

dmac (4214) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - FEB 21, 2014
Draft during RBWG bus tour. Poured a good looking rich dark gold with an average sized foamy mostly white head. Aroma and flavor of citrus, grains, toast and a hint of molassess sweetness. Overall a good IPA.

MartinT (8135) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 10, 2014
My Bottom Line:
This classic 90s IPA juxtaposes citrus fruit, caramel and hop resins in a chewy mouthfeel.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A sheet of foam covers the misty dull amber.
-This is too sweet for my liking in IPAs.
-Oranges peer through often.
-This is quite drinkable.
-I guess I was expecting a brighter example for such a popular IPA !

On tap at the brewery taproom.
