4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Appearance is an amberish orange with a lasting white head. Aroma is citrusy, hints of pine, but dominated by pineapple hops in most cases. Caramel and toasty malt support the hops. Flavor is much the same, great hop complexity with supporting caramel and toasted malts. Fruitiness is all from hops; decidedly bitter, but definitely pleasant and clean, not harsh. Medium carbonation and body; In short, awesome beer! Aside from the multiple awards, a must try if you’re in the Cleveland area.
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 (979) - - 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 (1875) - 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 (1763) - Royal Oak, Michigan, USA - JUN 25, 2017

Pours an orange-yellow with little white head.
Beautiful citrus favor; bursts of grapefruit with lime and orange not far behind. Slight malt that perfectly compliments the intense, hoppy profile of this fantastic IPA.
Would order again, and again.. and again.... aaand again.
Refreshing, diverse, genius. scarletfire65 (1507) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 16, 2017
Draft in the Philly Airport. Fruity and juicy nose, with apricot, orange, cream, spearmint, resin, pine. Bitter, fresh, juicy finish. About as good as an IPA gets these days. Itzjerm (3119) - Taft, Tennessee, USA - MAY 4, 2017
This IPA is spot on. Nose is clear American hops. Taste is sweet and hoppy hop candy with minimal bitterness. Perect body. Really an excellent. IPA.

Growler from Trenton Road Takeout in Falsington, PA. Bright Amber gold topped by a small frothy beige head. Fragrant citrus hop nose explodes on the pour. Wonderful buttery, toasted malt flavor upfront. Then comes the rush of citrus and pine hops. Bitter, yet not over done. Complex and spicy with notes of mango, pineapple and tangerine. Finish becomes peppery with pine and grapefruit notes. Just a splendid example of a West Coast style IPA. Worth seeking out.
