Draft at the brewery, date of beer’s release. Poured a slightly cloudy, vibrant orange color with a creamy, medium sized white head. Aroma was citrus, with notes of pine, sweet malts. Flavor was citrus. Crisp, enjoyable brew. BeerandBlues2 (13210) - Escondido, California, USA - MAY 23, 2012

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. Elwood (3336) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - MAY 20, 2012
Serving: Draft at the brewery. It pours cloudy and yellow. Unfiltered IPA? Sign me up. The nose has light tropical notes. The flavor reminded me of Two Hearted with less sweetness and more aggressive hops. Sort of a mix of tropical fruit, pine, and a very light touch of grain. Long bitter finish. Certainly nice enough to get a growler of!

Tap. Pours hazy gold with average, fizzy white head; decent retention and good lacing. Aroma is heavy grassy and floral hops, lemon and other citrus, bread malt, and light pine. Flavor is balanced malt and hops (light bitterness) with supporting citrus esters; dry finish. Not as hoppy as I expected given the nose. Medium body, carbonation, and warmth. argo0 (14127) - Washington DC, USA - MAY 25, 2012

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.
