coolpop (1394) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - APR 1, 2012
Draft at the brewery. Poured copper with a medium-sized off-white head. Aroma and flavor were piney and grapefruity hops, some caramel malt. Medium mouthfeel. Solid, but the least interesting beer I tried at the brewery.

gvmdw7 (188) - California, USA - MAR 22, 2012
Poured a hazy orange hue. Smelled citrusy. First impression of the taste was primarily lemon. Eventually that faded and only bitterness was left. They used a lot of hops, but I think it lacked much of the character Iíd expect from an IPA

nickd717 (3569) - San Francisco, California, USA - FEB 20, 2012
On tap at the brewery. Slightly hazy copper color with a small white head on top. Bright and fruity hop aroma with some sweet malt and cereal grain notes. Orange and apricots on the flavor. Dry, earthy, and balanced; tasty yet not overly bitter. Medium body with average carbonation. Solid IPA.

pantanap (3366) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 30, 2011
On tap at the brewery...pour yields a lucid mostly opaque copper orange toned liquid that is topped with a thin to medium creamy white head... Grassy and herbal hopped tinged aroma first with a citrus orange and tangerine-like backing... Piney and herbal hop flavors to start thing off, perhapa a little spruce and followed up by sweeter grapefruit and citrus while an adequate caramel malt for a little balance medium to fuller bodied before finishing of with a bitter bite. Solid and enjoyed

Braudog (5894) - Traveling the USA, Missouri, USA - OCT 9, 2011
Draft at the brewpub. Dark amber. Quite rich and malty, but with a nice acidity riding the top of the flavor wave. Very nice end to a long day of beer in Asheville. (#4316, 10/5/2011)

tmongoose (1389) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - SEP 6, 2011
on tap at the wedge, amber orange color with minimal white head. the aroma of citrus and floral undertones and the balance malt earthiness flavor is awesome. the hops are so well balanced and the tast of the citrus dancing on your tongue. the hop finish stays on your tongue even after the last swallow.

DiarmaidBHK (3526) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 26, 2011
Pours orange from tap with a thin white head. Big floral notes on nose. Massive burst of hop flavor on the tongue almost sweet in itís intensity with a nice floral dry finish. One of the best IPAís Iíve had in my brief experience.

GT2 (8741) - San Diego County, California, USA - AUG 23, 2011
Growler at Shenandoah Throwdown. Pours a clearish orange with a medium, decent, off-white head. Peaches and cream aroma. Taste is very astringent and bitter like dried nut skins. Strange melon squashiness comes through reminiscent of EKG hops. Big English hop profile. Extremely bitter and mildly astringent but not offensive in that regard. Enjoyable.
