b3shine (6761) - Indiana, USA - AUG 21, 2015
Draft to pint at Witch’s Hat. Looks good; a transparent fuller golden orange with white head. Smells of juicy and piney hops with a moderately bittersweet backbone. Tastes like it smells with a medium-bodied mouthfeel. Could be dryer and a bit lighter, but enjoyable nonetheless.

DrSilverworm (8698) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 27, 2015
Taste on tap during Michigan Summer Beer Fest. Clear orange amber color. Thin off-white head. Leaves some loose bits of lace. Moderate-plus bitter taste, moderate sweet. Good citrusy, earthy, floral hop. Moderate caramel malt. More of a balanced IPA, regarding hop/malt. Medium-plus body. Smooth, kind of soft, kind of crisp lighter carbonation. Light slick. A decent IPA. Kind of a bigger sweet malt to it.

SpongeRuiner (945) - Michigan, USA - APR 23, 2015
On tap at Petes Place. Pours a dull orange color with a nice thick off white head that settles into an oily look. A citrus hopped aroma. A creamy feel at first. With a nice mellow citrus. A piney fresh after taste that lingers nicely on the mouth. A huge wall of lacing. Overall a nice not overpowering ipa. Good stuff.
