To me, it smells almost exactly like its sister beer "Live Free or Die" IPA. Big floral notes, grapefruit, tangerine, pine, fresh hop and caramel. The only perceivable difference is that the malt presence is stronger in this one, which scores it a little higher in my mind. The flavors are nicely pronounced as well: floral, grapefruit, tangerine, pine, caramel, fresh hop, a dash of light pineapple, and a big punch of charred, biscuity malts in the finish. Earthy spice pops out in the aftertaste. Got a new go-to, I do believe.
Can at GABF. Pours a cloudy gold with medium off white head that lasts. The aroma is citrus, biscuit, resin. Medium body, citrus, caramel, light bitterness, good. woodychevy (874) - - MAY 16, 2016
Six pack cans at home. Now called Down to Earth. Really tasty- like a subdued and classier version of the massive ipa’s that are taking over the taps. Pine and citrus (grapefruit, orange) mostly- medium bodied with a crisp finish. Somewhat bitter but not overly so. Well balanced. At 4.4 and unassuming I happily had a second. May drink this one all summer. crossovert (14128) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 25, 2016
355ml can. Old rate. This is a shitty session if there ever was one that is all i have to say. Beerdedone (3480) - Croydon, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 15, 2015
Can. Pours a cloudy burnt orange with a nice white head. Aroma of citrus, pine and floral hops. Flavor of pine, citrus, grapefruit, floral, caramel and grass with a crisp dry finish. a tasty session beer andrewje41 (4519) - Kenmore, Washington, USA - APR 24, 2015
12 oz can poured. I always love the artwork on the cans from these guys. Very tasty beer here. Pours a cloudy orange color with a ton of head and lace. Sweet grapefruit like aroma. Full of flavor for such a light session. Juicy mango and citrus. Delicious session. Loved it.

Very nice pale ale. Cool monkey in a space suit on the can. Grapefruit notes. mfhennig (286) - McHenry County, Illinois, USA - MAR 23, 2015
Thanks Jerry! Nice orange color, off-white head. Good citrus hop aroma with some malt. Lots of hop flavor with a malty character. A whole lot of good things going on here.
As session beers go, this is among the best! iamwired (25) - Avenel, New Jersey, USA - MAR 5, 2015
Nice aroma, Carmel haze, hop note with bitter malt overtone. Non overpowering IPA but not too light to remind you it has hops. Easy drinking ale. tugboat_801 (24) - Salt Lake City, Utah, USA - FEB 7, 2015
Very solid extra pale ale. Great beer with good bitterness mellowed out my delicious malts. tykechandler (343) - Kentucky, USA - JAN 30, 2015
Loaded with hop character and a malty presence, but lower in alcohol. An American session beer.
