Drank it at the brewery from the tap. Lots of hops, but definitely going towards the floral end of the hops spectrum, so doesn’t have the overwhelming bitterness of most American IPAs. From someone who usually goes for European style beers, this was a nice refreshing craft brew.
Flight at brewery. Clear amber, off white head. Oddly indistinct aroma (maybe bbq in taprooms is a bad idea) Taste is slightly citrus, fairly sweet bready malt, maybe dank? Reasonably bitter, some grapefruit rind on the finish. Light to medium mouthfeel. Not my favorite kind of IPA. brigg (704) - New York, USA - JUN 23, 2016
(Can) Cloudy orange body, small eggshell head. Lots of mango in the aroma, also orange; sweet. Flavor is not as sweet as suggested the aroma; strong bitterness; pine, pineapple and floral notes. Medium body. bytemesis (8970) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - JUN 1, 2016
Tap. Pours clear Amber gold, medium off white head, good lacing. Aroma is light pine and grapefruit. Flavor is light sweet, light plus bitter, bit of rye spiciness. Lightish body. Not bad. HippieFee (467) - - MAY 15, 2016
Growler - Light orange color with a blanco head of small bubbles that doesn’t go away. Very carbonated, constant stream of bubbles. Balanced hop flavor that isn’t strong, not much if any sweetness which is good because I don’t like malt sweetness. Slight dryness on the palate. Lots of fruit flavors on the back end after a sip, grapefruit is what I get mostly. stevoj (5432) - Boise, Idaho, USA - APR 7, 2016
Bottle from Modern Liquors -DC. Was saving for bottle share, but getting too old. Pretty smooth, in the East Coast style. Cloudy golden body, with medium airy head. Light hoppy aroma and taste, might pass for an APA in the NW. Tasty, with mild lingering finish.

Norm’s Beer and Wine, Vienna Virginia bomber: pours orange gold woth a white head. Aroma is light hints of pine and a good bit of tropical fruit along with a floral note. Taste ia not very bitter but is quite fruity. Not too sweet either. Backbone is there but it does not assert itself. Qa good IPA. cfrancis (3536) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 28, 2015
Thanks to Deuce for this. Pours dark dirty brown with a small beige head. Aroma is big pine and floral hops and earthy caramel malt. Taste is much of the same. Nice more IPA that has a big hop presence but a solid malted back. Iphonephan (7192) - Jackson Hole/McLean, Virginia, USA - JUL 24, 2015
