Clear amber beer with a short lived sticky off-white head. Fresh, bright orange hoppy nose with some pine and resin. Lots of fruity flavors in here with manderin orange, tropical fruits, apricot jam and red grapefruit. This beer is dominated by the hops with a long, pinching bitter finish. This is a nice big hop head beer. edgallow (4640) - nashville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 8, 2014

Pours a mostly translucent golden copper with a medium bubbly/creamy off white head. Aroma of fresh citrusy and floral hops with a touch of caramel malt. Great nose. Flavor of orangey hops meet Munich malt with a touch of caramel. Dry, yet great body. Excellent "winter" IPA. thegreenrooster (4633) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - NOV 17, 2013
Pour is a clear amber with a small white head. Aroma is a nice pine hop with some sweet malt. Flavor is more sweet malt with a nice hoppy backbone. Pretty straight forward IPA. Decent stuff. johnnnniee (4457) - Bedford, New Hampshire, USA - FEB 14, 2014
Bottle received in trade from RobertDale, thanks for the opportunity!
Pours a cleat dark golden color with a smallish frothy white head that quickly settles to a cap on top. Citrus, earthy and spicy hops dominate the aroma. Bready with light caramel malts provide a hint of balance to an otherwise hoppy nose. The flavor is a bit sweeter than the aroma let on. Rich bready sugary honey maltiness provides a nice base for nice hit of spicy citrus hop flavor and a moderate amount of bitterness that lingers long into every sip. Medium body with a light to moderate level of carbonation and a slick resinous mouthfeel. Nice IPA

12 oz draft at Waldo Pizza in Kansas City, Missouri. The pour is a clear copper orange with a frothy one inch white head. The aroma is tropical citrus, grapefruit, lightly resin, some floral and a bit of pine. The taste is the bright fresh tropical fruit hop, nice soft resin, pine all balanced with a nice cracker malt backbone. The palate is medium bodied with soft natural carbonation and a mineral resin finish. Nice. LilBeerDoctor (4236) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 28, 2016
On tap at the brewpub. Pours a hazy golden yellow with a thin white head. Aroma of light fruits, apple skins, floral hops, citrus. Flavor of citrus, orange rind, grapefruit, light fruits, bitter hops in the finish. Light, fruity, hoppy. Well done IPA.

12oz bottle poured into a Free State willibecker glass. I have had this a few times over the past year, both bottle and tap at the brewpub. This particular rating is for a bottle I just picked up. While it was fridged this problem was bottle 2-3 months ago, not terrible old. Its a clear amber beer, pours filter clear. Medium thick head that sticks around. Free State does a good job of clearing the malt and letting the hops shine. In this beer the bitterness is prominent in the aroma and the flavor. Its all hops, well done, nice beer but a bit industrial. I would like more character to the beer. But if you want hop juice its a good option. Terminus (3740) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - DEC 5, 2011
Tap at old chicago Manhattan, KS-pours bright orange with an eggshell rocky white head. nose of floral hops, pine, lite resin, and herbal quality with some decent lacing as well. flavors are lots of pine and resin lots of gin like quality however there is a medicinal flavor that overpowers most of the flavors in the middle of the sip. Is that sorrachi ace i detect? For some reason, i do get a lemon cleaner flavor here. decent but not great. dfinney23 (3424) - Houston, Texas, USA - MAR 13, 2012
Grapefruit and pine resin aroma. Bitterness pretty much overwhelms the malt.
