Pours a clear hidden orange on tap with thin off-white head that leaves moderate lacing. Aroma is slight citrus and floral hops, crappy pale lager like malt. Taste follows, slightly bitter finish and more of a pale ale malt. Decent, but nothing special.

12 oz bottle in Highland Brewing pint glass. Pours a hazy orange-golden with a modest amount of white head. Head has moderate retention and good lacing. Good carbonation. Some nice citrusy hop notes paired with a solid malt background. But ... While not flawed or imbalanced, this is too much of an "IPA light" in terms of flavor and, a bit, in its lean mouthfeel. For some, this should make it a highly drinkable IPA, at least on a hot day, but I was hoping for something richer and bolder. 12 oz bottle in Highland Brewing pint glass.

Emeister84 (2505) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - MAY 4, 2013
UPDATED: AUG 25, 2013 Aromas of citrus fruit, flora, subtle nectarine, and some toast. Clear orange with gold highlights, and with a fairly lasting, small white head. Dry, bitter, well balanced. Light body, clean, crisp, refreshing, fluffy carbonation, with a quick, fresh, bitter finish.

Lubiere (13941) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 10, 2013
A golden IPA with a thick mocha head. In aroma, light caramel malt with floral hops, OK. In mouth, a good caramel malt with grassy British floral hops, light grapefruit pulp, decent.

Not terribly overwhelming for an ipa. This did not have the normal hoppy aroma or flavors characteristic of its name sake. Not bad, bit kinda soft.

Clear yellow gold with white head. Citrus and hops on the nose. Same for the taste. Creamy feel leads to mild bitter finish.

monkeychugg55 (1093) - Joliet, Illinois, USA - FEB 8, 2013
Golden copper with a small white head. The aroma is citrusy with little malt. The flavor is similar but nothing amazing. Could use some more character.

12 oz bottle pours deep golden with a white head. Aroma of caramel, citrus and floral. Taste is caramel malts and a nice bitterness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

From bottle. Pours hazy golden in color. Aroma was mostly fruity hop with a small amount of pine. Taste was full of malt with a nice bitter finish. Well balanced.

Crisp, dry, classic American IPA. Great palate, floral notes of bergamot. Not among the very best but an extremely serviceable regional style. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
