malvrich (319) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - MAY 8, 2015
UPDATED: AUG 3, 2016 12 oz. bottle into a chalice.
Bottled on the 100th day 2015 so 03/15.
A: hard pour yields a lovely pale orange with attractive tan head. Great clarity. Good retention.
S: Grapefruit, pine needles and slight peach. A bit of malt sweetness.
T: More grapefruit than pine in taste but otherwise follows the nose. Fairly juicy and overall pretty tasty. Not very boozy tasting.
M: Light for its strength and well carbonated to make a refreshing drink.
O: A good tasty IPA but way overpriced. Stronger than I prefer as well but IPAs are strong. Ripped off my local HT with a 10 dollar mix-6.

8/14 Draft at Bull McCabes. Not as much nose as I expected. However great complex mouth of hops. Nice balance without venturing into DIPA territory.

UPDATED: FEB 15, 2015 From 22oz bomber with best by date of 8/25/20. Grapefruit and licorice aromas. Creamy head with good lacing. Citrusy start with bitter hop finish. Doodler (318) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 17, 2010
Pours a hazy-golden with one inch froth head. Sticky lacing. Piney hop aroma with a citrus / fruit nose. Flavor offers a blast of hops and slight bitterness on the finish. Well balanced. Still, this beer is mellower than I had expected. Slight citrus after-taste, but dry. Should be a tasty brew for the summer. Will have to track more down.. colinize (317) - Dallas, Texas, USA - APR 28, 2012
Pours a light nearly transparent gold. A thin head retains well as the beer is drunk. The hop flavor is pronounced citrus and is crisp and refreshing for an IPA. Overall I think the beer is a tad overrated, but is none the less a strong example of the category.

Pours hazy yellow with off white head and lacing.
Nice smack from hops up front, crisp and refreshing.
Lingering bitterness on the finish.
Not really getting the fruits as described by the brewer but still a pleasant beer.

Bottle. Pours orange with a white head. Aroma has notes of pineapple and grapefruit. Taste has notes of grapefruit with a bitter finish. mcmd (315) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - NOV 13, 2012
Pours golden yellow with white head which settles quickly to the rim. Aroma is honey, citrus and piney hops. Taste is a nicely balanced with initial brief sweetness followed by floral piney hops. Crisp and light mouthfeel however left a little bit of pill bitterness in the finish - par for west coast ipa’s though. Nice IPA. redtechnj (315) - Williamstown, New Jersey, USA - MAR 26, 2013

Aroma- Big sweet scent, honey,pine,fruity
Flavor-Bitter hoppy bite, sweet malt,citrus,creamy timc100 (314) - Park Ridge, Illinois, USA - JAN 19, 2013
UPDATED: JAN 21, 2013 Probably as fresh a bottle as you can get in the midwest (over 3 months before the enjoy by date). S: Great aroma, but subtle - sweet grapefruit, pineapple, grass, citrus zest, some breadiness, and decently resinous and astringent. A: Pours a pretty hazy gold with a nice white head that sticks clings to the glass T: Not over-the-top bitterness by any means - pretty dry. The layers of flavor are muddled and not easily perceived, but still very tasty. Lemon zest, grapefruit, solid malt backbone P: Feels like an IPA, does not linger very long O: A good IPA out of the bottle, but I image itâ€™s an entirely different beast when itâ€™s in its infancy on tap. Looking forward to trying it that way one day, but over priced for being bottled.
