Faint, weak aroma.. a staple of this brewery (apparently). Definite citrus on the taste, not overly hoppy.. I liked it.

jcos (1540) - Maryland, USA - FEB 6, 2013
Location/Date:Draft at Fire Station 1, Silver Spring on 2/05/2013.

Appearance: Poured a clear medium orange.
Aroma: Aroma of faint citrus, hop.
Taste:Light bitter, faint citrus. At times didnít realize it was an IPA.
Palate:Light body.

Summary: Fairly below average IPA. Not much hop presence, and at times didnít even realize I was drinking an IPA, which is to say not a good thing.

Pretty bad IPA. Very sticky and a mouthfull with a really sweet floral flavor and finish. Not too many bittering hops for me and my taste.

rogue77 (2) - - OCT 3, 2012 does not count
aroma is semi-floral, pine, fresh grass, not getting so much citurs flavors (pinnaple, grapefruit, mango); appearance is clear orange amber, small off-white head, mild lacing; bitter/hops taste at front, some caramel and bready malts in background, lingering semi-bitter aftertaste, clean semi-dry finish; mild mouthfeel/medium body; not as hoppy as an ipa, taste more of a decent apa

streve (103) - Maryland, USA - JUL 31, 2012
Draft at Brewpub. Pour was a light orange color with a small white head. Aroma was mild, mostly of grapefruit and citrus. Mouth is mild as well. Not much bitterness but its full of grapefruit flavor and a hint of caramel. Medium body. Not much lacing. This, I would consider a Pale Ale, rather than an IPA.

GT2 (8444) - San Diego County, California, USA - JUL 11, 2012
Tap at Fire Station 1 in Silver Spring. Pours a clear light orange. Okay webby lacing. Odd chemical nose moving to decent citrus hops and big paper. Taste is citrus hoppy, sharp, rindy, with a papery finish. Mild oil. Just a little bland still. Chemical feeling. 5/3/6/3/11=2.8

Finhead (1187) - OFallon, Illinois, USA - APR 23, 2012
A clear, gold pour with a white head. It has a fairly mild hop aroma. The light body has lively carbonation and a slightly bitter taste. Not very hoppy for an IPA, but makes a decent American Pale Ale.
