maxwelldeux (4374) - Snohomish, Washington, USA - JUN 9, 2013
Bottle. Pours a hazy dark copper color with a smallish white head on it. Nose is a little bit hoppy with some floral elements to it, but the smell is rather light and easy to miss. Taste is bitter with a rather bitter finish, but tastes like its not too fresh any longer. Doesnt taste too complex at this stage.

MarkQ (83) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 28, 2013
Why doesnt ratebeer.com have a label rating... very cool bit of graphic design here. This is a typical American IPA. Bitter enough with a slight watery taste. ABV is 7.2% but easy to drink.

SpringsLicker (3604) - Tennessee, USA - APR 22, 2013
Hazy dark orange pour with a tall sticky off-white head. Earthy aroma of citrus rind and pine. Starts sweet with bitterness in the middle and a dry finish. Average as far as IPAs go, Better than many organic beers that Ive tried.
