On draft at buffalo wild wings in Philly. Has a slight aroma of hops, and has a nice flavor of hops, but is not overly bitter. Not the best, but pretty good.

12oz bottle from Picks poured into a shaker. Pours a cloudy orange with a half finger of off-white head. Aroma of citrus and pine. Taste is lightly bitter and lightly sweet. Taste of citrus and biscuit. Medium bodied with a creamy texture. Lively carbonation and a long bitter finish. Overall, very good. Something I really plan to drink again.

bigben873 (249) - Virginia, USA - SEP 17, 2011
Aroma - Light hops, not much aroma Appearance - Clear Amber, lots of head Taste - typical IPA; not crazy hoppy bitter, but standard (less than a Sierra Nevada for example) Palate - Finished pretty well for being a little bitter overall. Overall - Not a bad IPA, not a great one. Nothing remarkable, good or bad.

deyholla (11161) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 16, 2011
Bottle thanks to Roonai. Pours a clear golden orange with a light tan head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a good amount of pine hops with a bit of grapefruit and some sweet grains and caramel backing. Flavor starts with a bit of grapefruit but has a growing note of pine with some resin and some sweet bread backing.

UPDATED: AUG 20, 2012 pours a dark gold/copper color with some see through quality. very aromatic nose with lots of citrus tones, hops, lemons and a floral quality to the nose as well. Certainly showing the hops but its not overpowering at all. Very tasty medium/full feel with mostly hoppy and citrus tones. This IPA saved the night for me. Exactly what I was looking for and a real good example of an IPA.

A - Pours a slightly hazy copper-orange color with a finger of frothy off-white head. The head fades down slowly leaving behind some nice lacing. S - Aroma is a nice balance of sweet and slightly bready caramel malts and some citrus hops with some grapefruit. T - Starts off with some mild sweet caramel malts and some citrus hops. Through the middle, they grow stronger with the addition of some bitterness and some richer bready malts. The finish is a mix of citrus hops and grapefruit with some caramel/bready malts that linger. M - Medium-plus bodied with moderate carbonation. Feels smooth with just a bit of a dry kick to it. D - Very drinkable. The hop profile is very nice here as it the malt-hop balance. I really like the depth of the malt flavor alongside the hops.

dumontn (530) - St. Joseph, Michigan, USA - SEP 11, 2011
12oz bottle produced 7/15/11 Appearance is hazy copper with 2 fingers of foam that disapate to a skin. Aroma is rich malty caramel and citrus peel, nuances of bread and resin. Taste is bready and fruity caramel initially and finishes resiny with a hint of grapefruit. Body is full, frothy, avg carbonation, finishes dry with just enought bitterness to bite the tongue and make you reach for another sip. Overall, a very good IPA and certainly a benchmark of the style but particularly exciting.

strap (899) - Sindelfingen, GERMANY - SEP 11, 2011
