3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
22 oz draft, aroma is clean but faint, almost nonexistent. Very nice head that clings to the glass as you drink it with a golden, slightly hazy color. Good flavor of pine and citrus hops, overall a decent ipa.
Sampled from the tap at the brewery. Pours a clear straw yellow with a white head that dissipates to the edges and laces slightly. Aroma has notes of earthy grains and grass with a bit of pine backing. Flavor is similar with a combination of earthy grains, grass and wet pine. partchapol (141) - Ohio, USA - JAN 28, 2017
Smell of sweet floral (honeysuckle I guess) and hop. Drink from bottle. Taste sweet, smooth, nice aroma of hop, might not as complex as other IPA. Texture is slightly slimy. Good above average. rosenbergh (11681) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 20, 2016

Pour on tap at Midtown Brewing, clear orange-yellow pour with white head, aroma brought notes of diacetyl, veggie, some slight hints of grass, touch of spice into a bit of earth, biscuit. Taste was a mix of grass, biscuit, bread, hints of yeast, some veggie notes with a hint of butter, finishing fairly bitter. superspak (5793) - Michigan, USA - SEP 18, 2015
12 ounce bottle into tulip glass, bottled on 6/24/2015. Pours slightly hazy/cloudy orange/amber color with a 2 finger dense and fluffy off white head with good retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a light amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of grapefruit, tangerine, lemon zest, orange peel, light pine, honey, light caramel, toasted bread, and floral/grassy earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of citrus/floral hops and moderate bready malt notes; with solid strength. Taste of big grapefruit, tangerine, lemon zest, orange peel, citrus rind, pine, honey, light caramel, toasted bread, and floral/grassy earthiness. Good amount of pine/citrus rind bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, tangerine, lemon/orange peel, citrus rind, pine, honey, light caramel, toasted bread, and floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/piney hops and moderate bready malt flavors; with a good malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, moderately sticky/resinous, and slightly creamy/bready mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very good IPA. All around good complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/piney hops and moderate bready malt flavors; and very smooth and easy to drink for the ABV. A nicely enjoyable offering.

Poured from bottle with an orange color with an average head. Aroma of pine and caramel. Flavors included earthy and garbagey elements / vegetal. Firm bitterness was the best thing going for this one. So so beer. UDBeernut (2883) - Saint Johns, Florida, USA - JUL 28, 2015
Man, kinda surprised by the low scores here. Pours golden, somewhat translucent capped by a off white head that reduces to a soapy looking cap. While I agree the nose is slightly weak, taste features plenty of hop resin, pine, and bitterness all topped on top of a medium body. Pine and dryness linger for a bit. This is pretty decent. mallons72 (208) - livonia, Michigan, USA - JUN 2, 2015
I saw recently that this beer won the gold medal over two hearted in a competition in frankenmuth.....it was in frankenmuth. Not a chance. Bad ipa. blackflag321 (691) - Lansing, Michigan, USA - MAY 24, 2015
12 oz bottle poured to pint glass. Murky, yeasty light gold color with medium head. Picked this up because I read that the brewer claims he created Two Hearted when he worked for Bell’s. This beer is okay, but it doesn’t run with Two Hearted. Nice malt/hop balance with just the right citrus kick for an IPA. finish is bitter, but yeasty. alexsdad06 (10589) - West Chester, Ohio, USA - MAR 15, 2015
12 oz. bottle picked up in Toledo. Pours a clear orange golden color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have some citrus, light resiny character, toasted bread, flavor becomes just bitter with no real flavor profile, pass in the future.
