Nice really rich crisp and slightly hazy peach and copper coloured body with a nice orange glow at the bottom and a two centimetre tall tan head - very nice look. Aroma of pineapple, pine, toffee, malt and a bit of herbal hops. Medium-bodied; Assertive grassy and very dry herbal hops with a hint of pine and a peppery, slightly woodsy finish with a decent malt backbone and a lightish, non-cloying palate. Aftertaste borders more on the hops than anything else, but a fairly good balance and a nice dry, herbal and very grassy flavour shows a different style IPA than most. Overall, a nice beer - not as good as some of their other beers, but a well crafted beer and worth trying if you can find it and like a lighter IPA with more herbal and grassy flavours. I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased from Whole Foods in Arlington (Clarendon), Virginia on 02-September-2012 for US$3.99 sampled at home in Washington on 06-November-2012, when President Obama was re-elected.

This one pours clear medium gold in color with a sticky, tall mostly white head.
The aroma is light citrus and pine hops.
The flavor is well balanced; slightly to the bitter side. Some dryness in the finish. Good average IPA. michcam8 (577) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - NOV 2, 2012

Dry, notes of wood and grapefruit peel. Kind of sharp like with onions. The aroma has a deep sweetness about it, but is also grainy. It’s an okay beer and an alright IPA. dwyerpg (6365) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - OCT 12, 2012
This was only an okay IPA. Had a bit on the warm side. Flavors of bittering hops mostly, not real fruitiness or sweetness. Eh. BOLTZ7555 (3027) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - OCT 4, 2012
Bright golden tangerine pour with a small ivory head that left rings inside the glass. Grapefruit, candied citrus, orange peel, and caramel in the nose. Similar flavor with a hint of dustiness, honey, and pine. Medium mouthfeel but nothing really noteworthy. BeerHawk (1810) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - SEP 29, 2012
Bottle date 5/2012. Poured orange with an off-white head that left light lace. Aroma of grapefruit citrus and light caramel. The flavor found much the same with grapefruit and orange standing out. Light to medium body, orange aftertaste. Very smooth and sessionable.
