3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a translucent amber with a medium bubbly/creamy off white head that left sticky lacing. Aroma of tropical fruits and mixed citrusy hop notes with a touch of caramel malt. Flavor of grapefruit, pine and Cheerios. Great IPA but I’m already missing the super dry not much specialty malt IPAs I was getting spoiled with a bit back on the east coast.
Tried this back in 2011 and only now transferring the rating. A really solid IPA that makes good use of citra hops. Grapefruity and well balanced. Nice amber character with a sweet malty backbone. jcwattsrugger (12559) - Florida and, New Jersey, USA - NOV 12, 2014
On tap. Tan head-dark amber. A-grapefruit/pine. T-grapefruit/pine hops with some bite, second light/medium malt/caramel. BOSSbrewer (2705) - Arkansas, USA - SEP 5, 2013
This is a very nice IPA. Golden amber in the glass. Lots of hop aroma and good bitterness. Had in Lawrence. NachlamSie (3598) - Denver, Colorado, USA - AUG 19, 2013
Pint at the brewpub. Pours crystalline copper. Aroma is nice and grapefruity with a strong hop presence. Good use of hops in the flavor as well and it’s a citrusy, grapefruity brew. There is a stray metallic and vegetal quality mixed in with the more desireable flavors. Decent. jcnielsen (3416) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - FEB 18, 2013
On tap at the brewery. Pours a clear copper color with white head. Citrus, hoppy, orange flavors. Has a smooth, creamy mouthfeel, due to the oats. Interesting beer.

On tap at the brewery. Comes a clear copper with a small white head. Aroma of citrus, malt, and florals. Taste is malt, grain, grapefruit, pine, and florals. Nice IPA Huhzubendah (3775) - Washington DC, USA - OCT 29, 2012
Growler shared by drabmuh. Thanks Matt!
The beer appears clear and copper oranges hued, with a half inch of white head that leaves a fair amount of lacing on the glass. The aroma is sweet, earthy, and brings scents of dank hops. The flavor is balanced, with some sweetness from the malts blending with tropical citrus fruits. The beer is slightly sticky, stubbornly clinging to the palate between sips. This goes down very easily. I could put away my fair share of this. A good IPA, I would have this again.

It poured a clear orange color with a white head. The aroma was very hop centric but not overwhelming. The taste was a combination of medium bitterness, but again not too overwhelming, but a great combination. This was my favorite of all the beers on tap. diogenes9876 (1) - - OCT 2, 2011 does not count
Very alluringly aromatic blend with an earthy feel and a crisp citrus finish. If the aroma alone doesn’t entice salivation, the beautifully crafted and exquisitely proportioned balance of the artisanal and the cerebral will not leave you alone. I found myself wanting to bath in this masterpiece.
