Tap at RnH. Light amber pour. Big punchy citrus hop aroma. Taste is light malt with a pronounced hop bitterness, somewhat citrus like. Pretty good. jbardin (169) - New York, USA - AUG 6, 2010

Strong floral fresh hop aroma, like a muted Pliny. Taste less distinct--expected hop flavors, without as much freshness as the aroma. Still very good, a quite above-average locally produced IPA. JoeMcPhee (10129) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 30, 2010
Tap at Rattle N Hum. Hazy golden pour. Thick, pillowy sticky head. The nose is quite piny and resinous with a touch of light citrus. Very bright sticky hop nose. Tooth-coating hop oils and a nice sticky hop character. Really quite fresh. The malts are definitely here but they don’t really interfere with the hops at all. As it warms up the hops fade a little bit leaving a more juicy orange-citrus from behind the bright pine resin. Nice, solid well-crafted IPA ben4321 (6827) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - APR 18, 2010

Appearance: Pours an orange color with a white head
Flavor: Taste is resiny as well, mild sweetness, medium bitter

Overall, this beer is pretty nice. This is my first Kelso beer, though I have had a bunch of the Heartland stuff, and I now see they are related through Greenpoint. Anyway, I liked this beer, a very solid IPA.
