Bottle (Feb 9, 2018 bottling).
Head is initially small, fizzy/frothy, white, mostly diminishing.
Body is dark yellow.
Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), moderately hoppy (grapefruit, resin), with a hint of onion.
Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter.
Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter.
Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation, lightly to moderately alcoholic.
Pretty simple aroma, not very enticing but fairly clean. Good flavor balance in the mouth, but a bit watery. Ordinary overall. r464 (2422) - Earth, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 17, 2018
An aroma that gives hops and citrus zest. Nice, medium bodied, with a good dose of hops that are dry and bitter, but not at all over the top. Grapefruit with a really light hint of malt lying beneath. hophead35 () - columbus, Ohio, USA - MAR 12, 2018
this is my regular go-to beer. strong hints of pine and grapefruit - very citrus. no hint of alcohol whatsoever. obxdude10 (2395) - Pottstown, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 28, 2017
Awesome IPA on draft at Champps in Collegeville. This beer had a massive amount of hops, in both the aroma, flavors and finish. The combination of hops used in this beer definitely define this one. I could have sat there and had a few more of these, but the 7.5 abv pretty much prevented that. I tasted of pine and citrus notes in the body as well. This beer deserves all the awards it seems to have won. It's absolutely fantastic! LIGONIER (5) - Ligonier, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 25, 2017 does not count
Great IPA, one of the finest I've tasted. The aroma is a heavy piney smell, a bit of pineapple too. Strong bitter taste but satisfying to any IPA fan. Very enjoyable to drink.

UPDATED: NOV 25, 2017 Bottle into a snifter showing well filtered pale amber with half a finger of quickly dissipating clean white foam.
The nose shows pronounced mandarin oranges with light pine around the edges.
The palate is well carbonated and medium bodied. Moderately intense flavors of blood orange with very light pine resin around the edges. Finish is strong sharp pine IPA finish. Not bad but bitterness is a bit strong. salvaticas (1094) - - NOV 4, 2017
UPDATED: NOV 4, 2017 Bottle pour. Nice traditional IPA. Pours a dark crisp amber. Strong hops on the nose. Medium strong bitterness but smooth flavor profile. Really good. lanastasis (8) - St. Marys, Kansas, USA - AUG 18, 2017 does not count
I’m not specifically a fan of west coast style iPas but this beer is so smooth it more than makes up for any conflicts in preference. Very enjoyable summer beer. BeerdedDave (2133) - Beckley, USA - AUG 15, 2017
clear, amber color; beautiful citrus hop aroma; fantastic citrusy hop flavor with some pine notes; an assertive West Coast IPA; fairly light malt background lets the hops shine; outstanding chucklemation (1841) - Royal Oak, Michigan, USA - JUN 25, 2017
Pours a pale copper color with a white foam head. Aroma is bright and vivid citrus, pine, and floral hops and resin. Flavor is juicy citrus, resin, and pine. High bitterness. Has some carbonation and a medium body. Quite good.
