Bottle shared thanks to Tim and Rachel! Pours a hazy golden brown with thin lacy off-white head. Aroma of slight citrus hop and light caramel. Taste follows, a little weaker, less caramel and more biscuit. Not the best, but admittedly old. jake65 (4033) - Meridian, Idaho, USA - OCT 26, 2013
Bottle: Pours an attractive amber color with a thick finger of creamy beige head. Lots of sticky lacing and great retention throughout. The nose is fresh and wet; florals and pine, along with a sweet maltiness. The malty base hints APA over IPA and the taste confirms this. Flavors of citrus and pine, along with faint herbals. Strong malty presence. Refreshing and flavorful, but not the hoppy experience I was led to expect from the label. RobertDale (6985) - Lansing, Kansas, USA - OCT 24, 2013
12 ounce bottle. Pours reddish gold with a decent white head. Aroma of malt, citrus, and caramel. Taste is similar. Decent enough IPA. malrubius (3088) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - SEP 3, 2013
Bottle from Johns. No date (AFAICT), hope it’s this year’s. Copper with ring. Grassy leafy hop aroma with a little vegetal malt. Mild toasted caramel malt with minimal fruitness. Medium assertive citrus rind and woody hops finish. Fairly dry. Mild astringency. Medium body. Lively carbo. Pretty good. TomDecapolis (4636) - Milton, Delaware, USA - AUG 24, 2013
Pours a deep hazy amber with a medium off white creamy head. Aroma of orange zest,caramel malt, nuts and a nice sweet hop profile. Flavor of tropical fruits, citrus zest, nice but not harsh hop bitterness. Nice and dry with some caramel and nutty notes to balance. Was expecting a caramel bomb but it wasn’t! This bottle is at least 3 but probably more months old. Need to try a freshy.

Pours a reddish orange with a thin white head. Aroma of smooth hops, resiny. Very little malt flavour, dominated by hops. Even balanced finish, slightly bitter. cards04 (2943) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - AUG 7, 2013
A nice ipa. Pours a burnt orange with some nice lacing. Aromas of dank basement, piss, dirty socks, and sweet honey and citrus. Nice hoppy flavours. More pine driven Than anything else. A touch of water on the finish keeps this from having a higher rating. DiarmaidBHK (6151) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 2, 2013
Bottle from Johns grocery. Pours orange with a thin white head. Leaves a little lacing in the glass. Slight pine sol on the nose. Has a bit of grapefruit on the tongue but it’s very faint. Finishes clean. Eh! Godofthecellar (678) - NYC, New York, USA - JUL 25, 2013

Bottle. Pours amber gold with a white head. Light floral hops, clean malts, light sweetness, and a hint of citrus. A bit restrained, but not bad.
