Draft at taproom. Pours golden with a white head. Not a lot on the nose. Has some citrus on the tongue. Finished clean. Solid but not particularly memorable. Beerman6686 (6607) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 15, 2016

Pours a very hazy and very dark golden orange color with tangerine edges and a half finger white head that immediately fades into a thin ring. Not much in the way of lacing, only the occasional spot left behind.
Floral hop aroma with some grassy pine and earthy resins countered by faint citrus fruit and a pale malt backbone. The hop presence is surprisingly weak with a mild soil-like character along with some pine needle and subtle grapefruit sweetness. Pale malt backbone with hints of bread, biscuit, caramel and toffee. The aroma isn’t bad, it’s just kind of bland which is really disappointing for an IPA.
On the lighter end of medium body with a flavor profile that’s similar to the aroma. A little more hop forward than expected with some dry bitterness and sticky oils followed by tropical/citrus fruit and a sweet malt backbone. Some earthy pine needle, spruce tip and soil up front followed by some grapefruit and orange peel sweetness. Malt backbone is a little stronger than I prefer with hints of caramel, toffee, biscuit and cracker. Not the most complex beer but it’s well balanced and easy to drink.

It is in fact, easy drinking, but slightly unremarkable. It’s full of hop, grassy, some grapefruit, plenty of bitter, but you can put down a few of these pretty quickly. KyotoLefty (10264) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 5, 2015
Bottle. Pretty pastel orange-golden, low head. Biscuity, malty nose, tropical fruits, orange, mango. Great nose. Full flavor, biscuit, honey, orange, tropical fruits. A bit sweet, full body. Nice stuff. jason (1834) - Easton, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 6, 2015
Bottle. Aroma of melon, sweet malt and cucumber. Flavor is a slight bitter, lemon and hops with a syrupy mouth feel. j12601 (12000) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - APR 24, 2015
Pouring at TAP NY 2014. Pours a clear gold with a medium sized white head. Big earthy citrus on the nose. Sweet spicy citrus. Almost a hint of rye, citrus, vibrant. Soft malt, spicy bitterness. jsquire (4490) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - APR 15, 2015
Hazy gold out of the bottle with some floaties that got into the glass. Rocky yellowish head. Yeasty bready nosewith some orange citrus notes. Some orange flavors with some bready yeast. Uninspired IPA.
