Cloudy orange color. Medium body with flat low carbonation. High bitter hop presence. Finish is more carbonated than initial sip. Slight grapefruit and citrusy hops. way too flat if this is how it always is. bmerz (741) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - DEC 1, 2013
Can, fairly fresh. Very standard looking IPA with a little lace and head. Aroma is very floral with a mild sweetness, dry grain, and cedar. Taste is similar to this with subdued clean bitterness and a cedar end. Feel is soft and medium bodied. A very easy and well executed IPA with just enough character.

UPDATED: APR 20, 2014 22 Oz Bomber. The beer pours to a hazy orange/ amber color with a medium head. The aroma has a piney, slight caramel, biscuits & some mild citrus. The taste has a slightly sweet start followed by a nice medium bitter finish. Overall I think this is a good IPA merc7186 (3142) - North Tonawanda, New York, USA - NOV 16, 2013
A: Hazy Orangish/Mild Golden Straw Hue, Passes Some Light, Thick White Head, Decent Lacing
S: Piney, Crackers, Mild Grapefruit
T: Piney, Crackers, Mild Bittering Hops
M: Decent Carbonation, Medium Bodied, Mildly Bitter, Mildly Drying
Overall, a really decent drinking IPA with a great nose but a little too smoothe on the taste...drinkable and not a palate wrecker.

Pine, citrus, fruit and resin. Pours a cloudy yellow/orange with n off white head and good lacing. Nice bitterness and malt profile with a lot of citrus and bitterfruit. harrymel (1551) - Spokane, Washington, USA - NOV 1, 2013
Turbid amber ale with a soapy yellowed eggshell sheet. Smells of pine, resin, some mint, some other herbs. Flavor is nice and grapefruity, with sweetened lemon zest, some resin, some Vitamin C character and a slightly sweet malt backbone. Medium bodied with zippy, but lower carb and a watery finish. I like this beer. It’s like a smaller version of Ruination - which is probably my go to IPA honestly. Oregon_butcher (60) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - OCT 29, 2013
Very heady, very cloudy. Dark orange in color. Smell is very strong citrusy/earthy. Taste is of
mellow citrus, smooth, and very balanced. Very sessionable IPA. And a pretty dank IPA!

(July 2013, Can from Bottleworks, SEA) Appears clear, deep apricot. Nose is quite thick and sticky, almost fat/sweet hops. Some pineapple and pot. Quite pleasant taste, lightly pricking, subsequently more sweet and bitter hops. Well hopped alright. MartinT (9795) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 27, 2013
My Bottom Line:
Earthy hop resins and their citrusy buds develop dank, grassy greenery within this India Pale Ale’s caramel malt profile.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam tops the cloudy amber.
-The hops also share plenty of geraniol.
-The flavor profile could be tighter. There is a lot going on, but it is a whirlwind. Albeit, a nice whirlwind to parasail through.
-The soft natural carbonation increases drinkability.
