Received in trade from VncentLIFE, thanks for the opportunity. Pours a crystal clear deep golden color with a decent white head that shows moderate retention with a fair amount of sticky lace. Smells of pine and bread with hints of citrus. Smells like an IPA should clean with a bit of dankiness. Taste is a mix of bread and caramel malt offset with some pine and citrus to remind you there are some hops in this one. Medium body with a dry finish, moderate level of carbonation with a slick resinous mouthfeel. Decent IPA, I really enjoyed it, but seems a bit on the mild side of "India" Clean flavorful brew.

Draft. Very nice fruity citrus aroma. Taste is not overly bitter, and has decent enough malt balance. Nice.

Ported from BA. Appearance: Pours a pleasant clear amber color, with 2 fingers of foamy head in my Darkness tulip. As the head begins to recede, sticky lacing clings to the edge of the glass. Smell: A mild orange scent is the most forward element here. The smell itself is actually very subdued. A large breath of it reveals that it actually smells very sweet, with pine notes coming through on the end. Taste: The side of the bottle claims that the beer is full of simcoe, and thats certainly true. Pine is the forward flavor here, with some amount of grapefruit in the back end. Its sweeter than Im used to for a regular IPA. None of the flavors are bad, exactly, but they dont quite mix right. Its not quite focused on any one flavor. Mouthfeel: High carbonation, light/medium body. Coats the mouth for a bit, but doesnt stick quite as long as most that I drink. Overall: Its decent. My big issue is just that the flavors seem to come through in the wrong order. Flipping the usage of the simcoe and centennial hops usage might help. Just a bit more flavor balancing and this could be a great beer.

Draft at the brewpub. Bright copper with a sticky head. Very, very nice citrus hoppiness, with the mouthfeel an IPA should have. Totally breaks thru spicy food and drinks with a nice edge. Beauty. (#4277, 10/4/2011)

Mystic amber color. White head and lace. Soapy aroma. Medium body. Cold smooth hoppy taste. Way better than a pale ale this beer borders on double ipa greatness. If you see it in some beachside pub chances are... its your best option.

ekoerper (599) - Iowa, USA - AUG 15, 2011
Aroma: fresh floral hops, citrus, some bready malts. Pours clear, golden with a white head, average retention, some spotty lacing. Flavor: sharp bitterness and pungent hops, grapefruit and pine, bready malts, slight sweet note. Medium body and carbonation. Really nice, hoppy, refreshing beer.

UPDATED: APR 7, 2013 This was enjoyed at Cabo in Balacksburg. We were in Blacksburg to move in my daughter for her last year at VA Tech. The Cabo is a popular spot and they have more than Bud light. The hazy amber ale was on tap and poured with a small head. The bitter taste of multiple hops was pleasant but not easy to distinguish. The piney bitter flavors were evident but I could not detect any grapefruit or citrus. The finish was bitter in the top of my mouth. I would have again if given the chance. Had another at Tavern 77 in Columbia , SC. This ale has a nice finish with citrus in the upper mouth.

Thanks to a great BIF package. Pours a clear amber gold with a very frothy almond head and great lacing. Aroma of piney hops and a slight citrus and a little caramel. Taste is smooth piney hops, nice malt balance but subdued flavours.
