egajdzis (6589) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 9, 2014
Amber color with a small, white head that left light lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrus, floral hops, toffee, light caramel, and a bit of pine. Taste of citrus, bready, sweeter malts, pine, and grapefruit.

seymour (2045) - Maplewood, Missouri, USA - FEB 2, 2014
UPDATED: FEB 3, 2014 Poured from a 12oz brown bottle into a nonic glass. Medium reddish amber colour with sudsy off-white foam, long-lasting with lace. Rich malty flavour with intensely resiny American hops (probably Columbus?) flavours and aromas: dank, grapefruit, black current. Light-medium body, average carbonation, lingering aftertaste. A very nice American IPA. So far, this and the Ironman stout are the only Free State beers I liked enough to consider buying again.

Finhead (1763) - OFallon, Illinois, USA - JAN 9, 2015
A hazy, orange-brown color with an off-white head. The aroma has a strong citrus with notes of orange rind and grapefruit. It has a medium body with slightly oily texture and lively carbonation. The taste is moderately bitter that continues to bite long into the finish.

Pleasingly drinkable IPA with a nice holiday spirit. Grapefruit presence is a favorite.

Great smell. Not as strong a flavor as I’d prefer. Light on hops. Very tasty, still.

berrya785 (441) - Kansas, USA - DEC 21, 2012
Pours a clear orange/amber with a nice white head. Aroma is all citrus and pine. Taste is fairly hoppy with some spice and maltiness also. Nice IPA.

nsquishee (641) - Richfield, Minnesota, USA - FEB 9, 2013
Very sweet citrus flavor with lots of malting. Decently hopped, but very intense sweetness dominates. Not bad.
