12oz bottle pours a hazy, copper orange with a thin, lacing white head. Nice aroma, hop pellets, C hops, orange, lemon zest, grapefruit, pine, flowers, a little honey, a little apple, a little resinous. Flavor is well balanced, citrus without being overly bitter, orange, pine, honey, flower pollen, a little wet earth, a little grapefruit. Full bodied, sweet, bitter finish. Extremely well balanced with a great nose. Beerman6686 (6607) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 10, 2011
This poured a light orange color with an off white head. Aroma was nice medium citrusy hops, some straw and grass too. Flavor was a decent amount of light juicy citrus hops and light biscuty malt to give it balance. Decent version of the style. zimm421 (57) - Ohio, USA - APR 28, 2011
UPDATED: AUG 2, 2012 Appears a hazy orange-to-golden color with a nice white head. The aroma is full of floral and earthy notes. The taste is very balanced, not overly bitter. There are also good floral notes here. The malts are very bready, almost like a biscut. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with the right amount of carbonation. Definitely a very drinkable IPA. Overall, a great brew. Glad I can find it pretty easily around here. MrChopin (4304) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - APR 23, 2011
hazy gold-yellow, thin white head. Nose is bit dusty, litter, light citrus. Flavor is more piney, fresher, bit of dust still. Very oily, lightly bitter finish. GT (10001) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 18, 2011
355mL thanks to CaptainCougar. The pour is a clear to hazed bright yellow with a dense, rocky, sheen, yellowish head. Nice retention and lace. Aroma is fresh hop pellets, grassy, fruity, lemon, kumquat. Taste is bitter, fresh, lemon, nutty, buttery. Palate is oily, buttery, sharp with grass and heavy bitterness. Very nice.

Dank and hoppy nose with lots of fresh citrus. Taste moderately sweet, moderately bitter, lots of citrus, lots of raw sugar and a bit of onion/garlic. EricE (1367) - Seattle, Washington, USA - APR 17, 2011
Pale yellow pour with good carbonation and a white head. Very nice hoppy aroma - pine, grapefruit and citrus. Light herb and onion. Flavor is dry and hoppy. Lots of citrus and pine. A bit earthy and grass. Finish is very biting and bitter. CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - APR 11, 2011
12oz bottles thanks to kmyers8807 and puddintane: Pours a transparent deep copper amber with a clingy off-white head. Has a lightly sweet pale malty nose with some grapefruity hoppy character. Starts with good fullness and light malty sweetness well-balanced with a crisp resiny hop flavor before a smooth bittersweet finish. True to style and very drinkable. chibuck (3513) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 28, 2011
Started the night off with this bad boy at Bon’s bar. nice gold pout with a really nice that has great retention and lacing...The aroma is very hoppy but in a great way, light pine resin finish...The taste is awesome no malt, just a hop presence throughout with a really nice bite. Super easy to drink.
A must drink in Columbus.
