Bottle. Grapefruit hop aroma with notes of orange and mango hops. Pours clear amber colored with a large off white head that has excellent retention and some lacing. Starts with orange and mango hop flavors. Finishes dry with grapefruit hop acidity and flavors with a hint of bitterness that coats the palate after each sip. Pretty good IPA.

Bottle (Feb 2017 bottling).
Head is initially average sized, frothy, off-white, mostly lasting.
Body is light amber.
Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), lightly to moderately hoppy (grapefruit, apricot, resin), with light notes of diacetyl, cotton candy.
Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly bitter.
Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, moderately bitter.
Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation, lightly alcoholic.
A bit light (5.5%) for an IPA, but otherwise decent enough. The aroma is ordinary, and has some light off odors, but isn’t too bad. It’s nicely balanced and bitter in the mouth, so if it was cleaner and more aromatically enticing it might actually be a winner. BelgianBeerGal (4066) - Panama City, Florida, USA - MAR 11, 2017
Rouse’s bottle walking to Garden District St Pattys Day parade. Tasty IPA with moderate bitterness focused on more fruity hops and less pine. Tasty and refreshing. Grumbo (2950) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - MAR 8, 2017
Bottle courtesy of Asbjorn, cheers. My first MS rating. Pours clear deep golden with a lasting off-white head. Aroma has a big dose of citrus, hop and tropical fruit. Medium sweetness, moderate fruity bitterness, slight sour tartness. Toward medium bodied, slight sticky texture, average to soft carbonation. Aroma beats the taste on this one, which is slightly artificial, but still very drinkable. CraftBeerNick (2564) - London Town, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 19, 2017

Bottle at Fulton Street bar. Pours an amber body with thin white lacing. Nose is sweet spicy hop, fruity malt and pine hop. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with notes of citrus hop, spice and fruity malt. downender (8660) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 1, 2016
Bottle from Total Wines, Sterling VA. Pale gold in colour, with a decent, white, head. Plenty of floral hops, fresh pineapple and grapefruits, suggestion of pine, and crisp balancing malts, before a dry, hoppy finish. Very good. rosenbergh (11532) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 20, 2016
12 oz bottle. Bottled on 12/03/15. (Collins Midtown Liquor) Tulsa, OK.
It's almost a year since the bottling but I'm willing to take my chance.
Very lively golden color with a bog foamy white head. And that's how fresh IPAs they are selling here.
First the aroma is tropical fruity hoppy then turning glue-y and turpentiny. The flavor is... pure horror. Glue, turpentine and vomit. This probably needs another try a bit fresher. Wish I get it somewhere.

Bottle from Total Wine & More, McLean. Light amber body with medium head. Nose is hoppy, grapefruit, spices. Taste is hops, fruits, grapefruit and spices. Creamy texture. Finish is clean and crisp. beer_rookie (566) - Arkansas, USA - OCT 14, 2016
Very tight seal. Pours a burnt orange color. Very cloudy. Pours with a very nice thick, very pillowy head. Dust colored head. About two fingers. Excellent head retention, good lacing. Very, very pretty.
Aroma is balanced between citrus and pine. There’s some grapefruit, some orange zest. There’s some malty sweetness, a little bread crust.
Taste is like light IPA. A session IPA, yup. Pretty decent hop bitterness, but not overly bitter. Lots of citrus, orange zest, grapefruit, and lime. Yeah, the lime is a little different for IPAs. But, it’s clearly lime. A little hops resin on the finish, no, actually a lot. It lingers a bit. It makes the beer seem more bitter than it really is.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied. Not so much watery though. It’s a little gritty, it’s not clean. The grit, plus the dryness of the beer makes it interesting to drink.
Overall, it’s not bad. The aroma was pretty interesting to start, but it leveled off some. This could be the most beautiful beer, or at least IPA, I’ve ever seen. But it’s lacking in body and taste a little. It’s good, it’s not my favorite. Yes, I would recommend trying it, and I’d probably buy it again.
