Cloudy, muddy look. Amber colored beer. Off white head. The smell is hops, pine, caramel, and citrus. The taste is hops, bitterness, citrus, pine, and caramel. foundmd (595) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 7, 2009
12oz bottle. Pours cloudy ruby orange with a medium white head. Pleasant aroma of citrus and hops. Initial sips reveal one-note flavors of bittering hops with pine. After the palate gets used to the bitterness, the balancing flavors of citrus and malt come through. Thin on the palate and maybe a bit too watery. Aftertaste is long and bitter. Overall a nice drinkable IPA. a10555 (125) - Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA - MAY 4, 2009

Pours cloudy dark copper color with bits of yeast and a nice light beige head. Great grapefruit and pine hop aroma. The flavor is similar, a lot of citrus, some pine and grass. The body is indeed crisp and somewhat dry. Very enjoyable IPA, kind of like a Two Hearted light, similar flavor but not as much character.

"Chunks in my glass from the gunk on the bottom of the bottle. Some as large as one inch flakes, quite alarming. Smells like pine needles. First taste is very rude and unkind to my lager lover taste buds. Reminds me somewhat of chewing an inner tube. Strong alky laced turpentine tar flavors. Pine trees and green grapefruits will rejoice! Bitter long medicianl finish that reminds me of the best DIIPAs. Good carbonation for an IPA. Oily unrefined hops finish. Simply terrible and on style.

Source: 12 oz bottle purchased from Friar Tucks in Bloomington.
Appearance: Poured a hazy gold/orange color with a two finger white head that dissipated into a bunch of lacing.
Aroma: Citrus, pine and grass. Citrus was mainly oranges. Very grassy.
Flavor: Solid malt backbone, slightly sweet. Pine and citrus hops. Lingering bitter finish.
Palate: Medium body with a slick mouthfeel and solid carbonation.
Overall: Good beer. Kind of a hemp bomb, but very well balanced.
Very hazy orange-copper with lasting foam. Aroma of orange peel, pineyness and hop acidity. Flavor is very skewed to the hops, which I love. Body leaves much to be desired, it feels light and fizzy. I love the hoppyness but I really with there were a touch more body. Lasting finish with a good acidy feel. screigh (773) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - APR 24, 2009
Poured a copper color with a huge fluffy head. Don’t know if it’s by design but this thing looks like a mud puddle. There is so much floating in it that it cannot be seen through. Kind of off-putting look. Aroma is weak with a smell of dirt and chlorine. Mouthfeel is light. Slight bitterness. Seems almost bland. I wouldn’t call this an IPA if judged blindly.
