Clear caramel gold with a finger foamy yellow-white head and nice lacing. Jammy citrus caramel aroma with some dank hops. Super smooth and very well-balanced. Mild caramel malt bed with a river of pure hop goodness on top. Light pine bitterness. Very drinkable. TH28 (462) - - OCT 24, 2014
Appearance is a cloudy deep golden with a moderate white foam cap. Aroma is strong fresh cut grass, with hints of pine and wood. Taste is a rich, toasty malt that gives way to a strong bitterness and hop flavors of acidic grapefruit, pine, and grass. Mouthfeel is light to moderate with a moderate carbonation. Finishes very dry and sticky on the tongue with a lingering bitterness and grassy flavor. Overall, an assertively bitter APA with tons of grassy hop flavor and aroma.

Pours a light tea colour with pleasant frothy head. Nose is bright and herbaceous, with hints of fruit. Taste is complex with melon rind, white pepper, thyme, hints of mint, bitter grass, and a nice oily, creamy malt palate. Great! HonusWagner (2191) - Florida, USA - OCT 22, 2014
One of the better GD hoppy beers I’ve tried, it’s got a nice dank weed quality with a little bit of tropical fruitiness, probably pineapple if I had to guess. Way better than their other IPAs in my experiences. Blairgus (4613) - California, USA - OCT 22, 2014

22oz bottle into Tulip. Minneapolis.
Appearance: Copper in color. Very slight haze, but mostly transparent. Very little head.
Aroma: Hops - I get mostly floral and piney. Light malty backbone.
Taste: Mildy bitter. A touch of sweetness.
Palate: Medium/thin body. Slick texture. Moderately long finish.
Overall: A pleasant beer, but a bit of a disappointment. It is a pale ale I suppose, but I was hoping the hops would be a little less delicate. Still, the flavor is nice and the hop profile is well done. TylerGreenDC (984) - - OCT 14, 2014
On draft. Classic, dank wettish hop aroma. Big lacing. Flavor is... sour? Kind of, yes. More sour hops than anything else. Finishes with some tangerine and a hint of caramel. Superb. beechner224 (1024) - Melbourne, Florida, USA - OCT 11, 2014
This is the 2014 version, not the 2013 version being sold in 2014... Pours a lite copper, with white head. Aroma is dank hops, just hint of sweetness. Taste is lite, hoppy, not too bitter, finishes dry. Nice pale ale. kidobutai (693) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - OCT 10, 2014
Poured from a bottle. This is a tasty beer! Short lived head, but good lacing and a fruity aroma and taste that went down quite smooth. Patrickctenchi (6624) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - OCT 10, 2014
Pours copper-amber with a short, off-white head.
Pine, grapefruit aroma.
Taste is caramel malt, orange/grapefruit-peel.
Floral, piney, leafy bitter....dank hops...
Wonderful, even bittering throughout.....without going over the top.
