Draft. Pours a medium, poorly retained off white head, with moderate lacing, over a very slightly hazy amber (SRM 7) body........nose is mild pine, resin, multiple citrus including tangerine, lemon, all from the hops, slight malts, balance to the hops.......taste is mildly floral honey sweet, light malt cereals, multiple citrus tones with tangerine, lemon tones, finishing with a mild bitter hop finish, balance to the hops.......mouth feel, light of medium body, no alcohol, moderate carbonation. This is a typical new style IPA with light malts, moderate hop complexity, minimal bitterness for the historic style. The result is an easy drinking, but quite uninteresting beer. This is probably a new recipe given that the last rating was over three years ago. BJCP 6/3/10/4/6 onceblind (9405) - Denver, Colorado, USA - DEC 1, 2013
Clear golden with a thin foamy persistent head. Aroma is fresh and hoppy, predominately leafy and a little citrusy. The flavor is crisp and hoppy with a lasting bitterness, lots of caramel maltiness, with leafy and citrusy leafy hoppiness. Mep3222 (1534) - East Greenbush, New York, USA - NOV 17, 2013
Nice light floral hop aroma. A bit bitter finish and more on the piney hop side. But lighter and very drinkable. Balanced and a nice local ipa.

Tap at brewery. Nice orange gold. Light vegetal nose. Dank hops, bit of citrus flavored. Dry. Simple and enjoyable enough. Steve_0 (3745) - Denver, Colorado, USA - NOV 1, 2013
On tap at Lucky Pie. Pour is clear golden orange with a big white head and good lacing. Grassy, husky, piney, resinous, straw, light citrusy, and caramelly aroma. Taste is grassy, wet hoppy, somewhat goopy, sweet cake, pine, weed, and astringent hops with a big bitter finish. Sticky mouth-coating body with medium carbonation. Another high boost offering.

Flavors of straw, grassiness, grapefruit and light pine with a crisp dry bitter lingering citrus finish. 3fourths (9331) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - OCT 8, 2013
Draft. Noticeable vegetable / leafy character in the nose, something I find common across these fresh hop / wet hop beers. Some orange oil and bitter green character with starchy, sourish pale and amber malts. Sweet and chewy, bitter and acidic, seems to be the standard here. Mild milk / lactic acid notes present with a crude hop bitterness. Unenjoyable. adnielsen (10601) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - OCT 8, 2013
On tap @ Fate. Pours a burnt orange appearance with a white head. A bit green hoppy, herbal, light citrusy aroma. Slightly tangy, orange citrusy, lightly floral flavor. OK. brokensail (16432) - Dublin, California, USA - OCT 7, 2013
