Given past experiences with this brewer, I was expecting this to be complete garbage juice - thankfully, I am pleasantly surprised - it is a bit overly sweet, but the sweetness is clean and does not keep the pine and citrus intensity of the hops from shining here - there is a light gingerbread note that also adds an interesting dimension - decent.

Pours a hazy orange with a smaller bubbly off white head. Aroma of candied orange, light caramel and pine. Flavor of sweet orange notes, other citrus, pine and floral notes. Decent caramel malt profile. deaconmike (470) - Roswell, Georgia, USA - JUL 6, 2013
Poured from a bottle. Hazy orange copper with foamy off white head. Aroma is tropical fruit with some caramel malt. Nice balance of sweet and bitter. Body is just on the light side; a little oily and slick. Nice refreshing IPA. Kinz (3786) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - JUN 29, 2013
Found floating around in the back of the fridge, a leftover from the last Richmond Gathering, probably from Tia? In any case, thanks! Poured a medium orange amber with a crazy amount of protein floaties, decent head. Aroma was citric and pine hops, some caramel. Flavor matched. Decent balance. A bit light in some ways, getting close to an APA. Not bad, just not very exciting either. rangerred (989) - Johnson City, Tennessee, USA - JUN 19, 2013
12oz bottle into a pint glass.
Pours a hazy dark orange with lots of chunks floating in the glass. Not very appealing to look at but at least I know this beer is unfiltered.
Aroma of tropical fruit with just the slightest hint of pine. A little caramel malt thrown in there as well adding some depth.
Tropical fruit and pine up front on the flavor but it doesn’t linger as long as I would like. Some dark bread and toffee round out the malt side and it is fairly well balanced. Moderate bitterness and a slightly sticky finish.
Overall, a solid but not overly impressive IPA. There is just not the depth of flavor that I am looking for.

Best IPA that I have ever had! Great aroma and flavor. Can’t believe that it took me this long to try it. bth122 (1557) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 13, 2013
Draft in Omaha. Poured a honey color. Lighter head. Nice floral citrus hop aroma. Pineapples. Medium bitterness. Citrus and fruit taste with hops. Pineapple, grapefruits. Smooth but potent bitter finish. Well done maekchu (3911) - Hirakata, JAPAN - JUN 9, 2013
Bottle from Yamaichi. Light caramel maltiness over a substantial citrus, with some rusty notes. Dark orange/brown color. Good typical IPA initial, with maybe more balance than normal throughout, moderate grapefruit notes. Medium body. Not an overthetopper at all. Perhaps a session IPA. tia (2221) - Sandston, Virginia, USA - JUN 4, 2013
Bottle. I am getting caramel, nectarine, and a hint of pine on the nose. Clear orangey golden with dissipating head. Sweet then the hop bitterness kicks in but its tempered by a sweetness. Not as clingy and dry as some. fonefan (49293) - VestJylland, DENMARK - MAY 26, 2013
Clear medium yellow orange colour with a average, frothy, good lacing, mostly lasting, off-white head. Aroma is moderate malty, toasted - caramel, moderate to heavy hoppy, orange - citrus, peach. Flavour is moderate to heavy sweet and bitter with a long duration, sharp hops, fruit, dry. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft.
