Nearly clear copper amber with a too-big 3-4" head, sheets and swirls of lace. Taste is a terrific balance between caramel malt and cleansing hops. The info says 104 ibu, and I respond: no way! The hops are clearly present, but never dominate the malt. For me, balance is the goal, and this IPA does that beautifully. Highly recommended. jsquire (4489) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - SEP 19, 2013
Deep golden color out of the bottle with a foamy white head. Strong orange and other citrus hop nose. This is a sharp, pinching hop centered beer. Lots of grapefruit rind, peach, apple over a firm home made bread malt backbone. This has a long, dry grapefruit zest finish. I like a big, pinching hoppy beer, and this is one of those. bpar73 (1118) - Bellaire, Michigan, USA - SEP 16, 2013
On tap at Detour. Pours a golden amber with a small white head. The aroma is pleasant, hoppy, floral, and fruity with notes of citrus and orange. The taste is hoppy, fruity, with a moderate bitterness. Nice middle of the road IPA. Finhead (1761) - OFallon, Illinois, USA - AUG 28, 2013
Clear gold with a white head. The aroma has earthy hops and faint leathery notes. It has a medium body with oily texture and average carbonation. The taste is moderately bitter, but a little bland. tnkw01 (1753) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 24, 2013
Bottle. Hazy golden color. Explosive, massive head. Taste was a strong dry hop taste. Aroma is what one would expect from an ipa, citrus and source.

Draft to taster. Looks good; a hazy orange with foamy white head. Smells and tastes solid; a nice hop profile with a medium-bodied pale malt backbone. Nice and smooth on the palate. Good beer. drsordr (2659) - Loveland, Ohio, USA - AUG 14, 2013
Draft pours clear gold. Nose cat pee and pine. Taste strong bitter up front, some fruity sweet malt, long bitter finish. Strykzone (7357) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - AUG 7, 2013
Sampled at esbls. A big gushing head. A big bitter blast and a different one. Onions, pine, citrus. Big malts are pale. Not a favorite. geeklimit (292) - USA - AUG 1, 2013
Pours well and to a darker amber color. Head retention OK. Aroma is of typical IPA hoppiness with caramel and honey undertones. Taste is an overpowering acrid hop bitterness with a slightly sticky mouth feel. Aftertaste has a notable aspirin flavor. jbarry1506 (28) - Indiana, USA - JUL 31, 2013
Nice easy drinking IPA with some smoke and resin.
This beer pours nice and light with very little head that dissipates quickly. The aroma is very light. I think a pine tree with some citrus fruit on the branches just walked past me, but I can’t be sure. My first taste suggests smoke in this beer. Good smoke and hops with a clean finish. Pretty good. I was thinking about the rating the entire time I was drinking it, but I was enjoying drinking it so much that I didn’t rate it until the end of the glass.
