Bottle. Sweet apricot, citrusy hops and rich caramel malt aroma. Hazy orange with a small white head, heavy flocculation. Sweet fruity malt, astringent piney herbal hops flavor. Medium body, soft carbonation. LilBeerDoctor (3931) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 6, 2013
UPDATED: MAY 2, 2016 Rerate 5/2/16. Bottle. Aroma of citrus, bitter hops, flowery hops, caramel malt. Flavor of caramel with bitter hops, bitter orange rind, citrus. Heavy palate for an IPA. Solid IPA, better than I’d remembered.
7/6/13. On tap. Pours a clear orange with a thick white head. Aroma of citrus, caramel malt, and a touch of crystal malt. Flavor of crystal malt, bitter earthy hops, caramel malt, perfumey hops. Hmm, a bit flawed but it’s drinkable.

On tap at Smokin Joes. Pours clear burnt orange with a white head. Aromas of caramel and some pale malts with some light citrus and a little pine. Flavors of pine, grapefruit, little orange, and some malty sweetness. This one is fresh and packs nice bitter punch. Surprised by the low ratings as this is a nice solid IPA. Can’t wait to brew with these hops. radagast83 (8072) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - JUN 22, 2013
Split a 12oz bottle with friends. Poured an amber color with a small white head. Aroma was earthy hops, lightly roasted malts, some light fruit characters. Flavor had caramel notes, earthy malts, some bitterness. May not have been the freshest, because it was lacking in the grapefruit and pine notes. umich03jm (3513) - Flat Rock, Michigan, USA - JUN 9, 2013
Bottle. Pours a orange-amber color with lots of floating sediment. I thought I was careful with the pour. Pungent herbal, floral and spicy aroma with some fruits too. Taste is weird though. Very herbal, very dry, and stale hops. Too much caramel malt too. A little pine in the finish. After a solid aroma, the taste is very disappointing.

[Cask @ Spinnerstown] Amber color with no head. Aroma of floral hops, pine, citrus, grass, and grapefruit. Taste of bitter chinooks, light sweetness, some pine, and bitter grapefruit in the finish. This cask seemed lifeless and overly bitter. Nephilium (1818) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - MAY 22, 2013
Nice big hop aroma, pours a hazy reddish-amber with a thin off-white head. Clean hop flavor, with a touch of malt. Long lingering bitter finish. This is a nice solid IPA. Drake (13739) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 10, 2013
12 ounce bottle from Whole Foods Market Wexford, PA. Pours a hazy bronze color with floating particles and a medium sized frothy tan head. Decent head retention. Aroma of citrus, resin, pine, candied citrus hops and caramel malts. The taste is intense pine, resin and citrus hops with mildly toasted caramel malts. Medium bodied. bucs572000 (237) - Minnesota, USA - APR 29, 2013
Aroma is a very light pine scent. Flavor is very much grapefruit and pine with a bit of spice. Really like this beer, a full chinook hopped beer seems kind of crazy but I think this turned out solid. Glad I got this in a trade, I would get this again. Very balanced Ipa!! mwbrady12 (469) - Orlando, Florida, USA - APR 24, 2013
Intriguing but muted aroma with a dirty yellow pour, complex taste with a lingering mouthfeel.
