12 ounce bottle into tulip glass, bottled on 1/9/2017. Pours moderately hazy/cloudy golden orange/amber color with a 2 finger dense and rocky off white head with fantastic retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Nice thick soapy lacing clings around the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Aromas of grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, peach, lemon zest, orange peel, citrus rind, light pepper, pine, light caramel, toasted bread, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Nice aromas with good balance and complexity of citrus/earthy/pine hops and moderate bready malt notes; with good strength. Taste of big grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, peach, lemon zest, orange peel, citrus rind, light pepper, pine, light caramel, toasted bread, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Moderate pine/citrus rind/grassy/spicy bitterness on the finish. Lingering notes of grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, peach, lemon/orange peel, citrus rind, pepper, pine, light caramel, toasted bread, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a while. Nice complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/earthy/pine hops and moderate bready malt flavors; with a nice malt/bitterness balance. Slight lingering hop astringency near the end of the glass, but not overwhelming. Moderate dryness from lingering bitterness and carbonation, increasing through the glass. Medium-high carbonation and medium body; with a very smooth, crisp, moderately sticky/resinous/rindy, and fairly creamy/bready/grainy balanced mouthfeel that is good. Zero warming alcohol for 6.9%. Overall this is a nice IPA. All around good complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/earthy/pine hops and moderate bready malt flavors; very smooth, crisp, and easy to drink; despite the bitter/drying finish and higher carbonation. Good hop vibrancy and nice solid malt backing, with minimal residual sweetness. A nicely enjoyable offering. edgallow (4377) - nashville, Tennessee, USA - JUL 2, 2016
Draft sampler poured a clear golden with this white head. The scent and taste was very bitter. zizzybalubba (1882) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - NOV 12, 2015
12 oz. bottle from Jungle Jim’s International Market, Fairfield, OH (bottled July 27, 2015 and listed as 6.9% ABV). Dark orange pour with a frothy off-white head. Tropical fruit aroma. Moderately bitter hop taste of wet grass, soft grapefruit, and pine needles. Lingering bitter finish. A decent IPA.

Poured into a perfect pint.
3.75 A: Well hazed dark orange color. Two and a half fingers of frothy/creamy off-white head. Retention is good and plenty of lacing is left.
3.75 S: Sweet and citrusy. Orange and lemon really stand out. Bready yeast with caramel notes. Mildly floral. Focus is really the citrusy hops.
3.75 T: Tastes like the nose. Citrusy orange and lemon. Bready yeastiness. Decent neutral malt backbone with hints of caramel.
3.75 M: Medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Reasonably creamy and quite smooth.
3.75 D: Wasn’t expecting much as I’ve never even heard of the brewery, but this turned out to be a pretty good beer.

Sampled at gabf. This one us just ok. Earthy and floral. Not enough flavor for that ABV. Ok. Dal9000 (665) - Ohio, USA - AUG 30, 2015
sampled at 2015 Dayton Alefest = Pours murky golden with no head. Delicate pine hoppy taste that builds. But still soft

Pours a golden body with a creamy head. A great bready hop flavor with a great hoppy finish. Great brew!

12 ounce bottle. Big orange color. Citrus and fruity malts. Too much carbonation in pour. Ok.
