Some unknown person left a bunch of this on my desk at work, no note or anything. I like my job. Bottle. Hazy. Ariegated amber gold color, massive cream colored ice cream cone head. Aroma of intense pine and maybe a bit of soap. Taste is bitter pine resin and subtle polish. Bitter stuff!
Can at home in Hackney - picked up at Premier Gourmet near Buffalo. Pours mostly clear orange-gold with a billowing, foamy white head. The nose has toasted crackers, faded pine, dried caramel, minerals. Light sweet flavour with mild grassy bitterness, more old pine, toasted crackers, light astringency. Medium bodied with active carbonation. Finishes with awkward oily pine bitterness, some crusty pale malts, grass, more crackers. Not great. BuckeyeBoy (7680) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUL 15, 2016
16oz can pours out a crisp golden copper topped with a white head. Nose is malty forward pine hops and grapefruit. Taste is more of the malty notes a pithy grapefruit bitterness and a oily end. FROTHINGSLOSH (7796) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 22, 2015
Sampled from a 16 oz can this beer poured a bright golden color with an enormous creamy-soapy orange-white head that lingered forever and left good lacing. The aroma was flora and fruity hops with a light sweet tropical fruit note underneath. The flavor was tangy and sweet with toasted caramel, pine, vague fruity hops and a bit of tobacco. Long finish with growing bitterness. Moderately full bodied. Decent. ben4321 (6506) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - MAY 15, 2015

I thought this was a pretty enjoyable IPA. Not a top of style example, but not a bad on either. Solid is really the right description for this one.
Looked interesting so I picked it up. Can. Poured yellow and murky with a big fluffy white head. Aroma was funk, hay, and lager yeast. Flavor was pretty much the same. Body was light but the texture had a thickness to it. Lively carbonation. This felt like a lager more than anything. I didn’t get IPA anywhere.

I get a bit of an English feel out of this even though they use the traditional American hop, Cascade. Appearance is light orange with a bit of haze, and small finger lacing. Nose: A bit of oranges, some caramel, and some other fruit I can’t put my finger on. Taste is similar. A bit like an IPA in that the malt is out there too. Thanks for the trade Ron, this is very enjoyable. Gamin (146) - Brockport, New York, USA - JUN 24, 2014
Poured from a 12 oz bottle. Minimal head. Smells fresh and citrusy. Very pleasant. Hazy light golden color. Berry and flowers in the flavor with a relatively timid bitterness. I'm definitively enjoying it. A wonderful IPA. blipp (9278) - La Mesa, California, USA - MAY 6, 2013
Draft at TAP NY. Pours golden orange with an off white head. Sweet citric hops, medium bitterness, some light caramel malty sweetness, and light floral notes. Pretty good. Mattmcc42 (11) - - JAN 19, 2013
Nice local IPA. Had three with dinner. Decent hoppy flavor, a bit smooth for my taste, but a winner overall. zdk (1917) - New York, New York, USA - OCT 13, 2012
from a growler: Sweet & sticky sugars. Well balanced bitterness. Some sharp tarts grapefruits. caramel, butterscotch candy on the palate.
