Pours a nice golden yellow with a thin beige head. Aroma consists of floral notes and fruits. Flavor has the usual hints of pine, as well as fruits, mostly grapefruit. Very drinkable, lovely offering!

From a bottle at house of brews, 5/2012. Pours pretty light color for an IPA, not cloudy at all, almost like a pale ale, golden with medium head. Lots of bubbles like champagne almost at first, but settled down after a bit. Nose just a really pleasingly intense hoppiness, I'm not getting all the citrus and complexity that other people have mentioned... It just smells like straight hops to me, and tastes the same. Really good though. A great session IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Scipio (940) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - MAY 23, 2012
Pours a golden red with a good off white head. Aroma is citrus and hoppy. heavy in grapefruit, some pine, orange, and a bit of pineapple. Taste is extremely hoppy. Lots of grapefruit is the dominant taste. It is piney, with moer citrus fruits; mango, lemon, pineapple. Big hoppy aftertaste. Full bodied, sticky texture, and bitter. This is one fine IPA.

solidfunk (8352) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - MAY 22, 2012
This one smells great from the outset. Fruity, almost apple aroma. Foam has staying power. Taste doesnt completely follow through, but still is quite good. Tracing good patterns, plenty of hoppy bitters. Pour an amber-like clear. From health food store in lebanon, NH.

Pours to a beautiful copper with a nice one finger head and spiderweb lacing. I shared a bomber with my buddy and was disappointed to have to share it (thats friendship, huh?). This beer has a malty, caramel aroma with a slight resin tone. This is a smooth IPA, like a buttery Chardonnay, it floats on the palate. A nice caramel malt with very slight fruit on the tastebuds. It has a great linger. If it wasnt 7.5% ABV, it would be a great session.

PhillyCraft (6760) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 20, 2012
UPDATED: DEC 1, 2012 On tap and bottles. Pours a slightly hazy copper color with small head and medium lacing. Aromas and taste of biscuity malt, lemon zest, pine, other citrus fruits. Medium bodied and only a tad bitter. Smooth and sessionable ipa. Re rate, draft at PH, ultra citrusy, bitter, oniony hops. Very nice.

wchesser (2033) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 19, 2012
UPDATED: JAN 4, 2015 Solid IPA, would gladly drink anytime. Resiny, grassy hop aroma. Clean bitter finish. Will stick with Dales in fhe future though just to keep it local when Im in the mood for something like this (I think Dales is marginally better too).

Deep gold, very clear, persistent off-white head. Aroma: loads of citrusy hop aroma (orange and grapefruit), with underlying grainy malt with hints of caramel. Flavor: up front citrusy and lightly grassy hop flavor, lingering resinous hop bitterness has slight vegetal character, grainy malt backbone with some crystal malt notes, balanced finish.

355 ml bottle thanks to gusgus! Sampled on May 14, 2012
Fresh, citrussy, hoppy scent, theres also a malty backbone to balance it. Clear golden color, medium off-white head. Hoppy, citrus, fresh, bitter, malty sweet, some alcohol taste. Smooth mouthfeel, medium high bitterness.
Very well balanced, very drinkable. Green and fresh.
