The aroma is unique, lemon, biscuit, citrus hops. The flavor is lemon peel, solvent, some skunk, some bread. The finish is sweet, citrus. Medium in body, slightly hick. Odd beer, but interstinging, and enjoyable. Brandon1989 (661) - Lewisville, Texas, USA - NOV 25, 2013
pours a hazy golden color with a medium off white head leaving lots of lacing. you see some sediment floating around but i shook the bottle at end of pour. the aroma is mostly floral hops and some citrus juices. the taste is citrusy up front with some hop bitterness in it as well. worth a try for ipa lovers. kidobutai (693) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - NOV 24, 2013
Good head, nice lacing, golden amber. Phenolic odor. Smells like a band-aid. That?s what phenolic means, my neighbor just told me. Doesn?t taste phenolic though. Tastes weak. mike5326 (1756) - virginia beach, Virginia, USA - NOV 24, 2013

DATE TASTED: November 17, 2013... GLASSWARE: Kisatsky Tavern pint... OCCASION: one sink leak fixed--tomorrow, the toilet unclogs!... APPEARANCE: golden yellow body--quite light (and bright!) for an IPA--and a thick milky white head; equally thick, cirrus wisps of lacing... AROMA: quite a fragrant floral bouquet with banana, clove and citrus zest--attractive and yet appropriate (!) for an IPA... PALATE: a bit acidic late, but overall a drinkable, persuasively medium-bodied ale that sits well in the mouth...TASTE: immediate punch of mango and peach gives way to pinecone; a comfortable, fruity, fittingly rewarding profile...OVERALL: The fall beers in this mix pack fall short, but the IPA wins out as distinguishing and desirable--this will b e my Magic Hat go-to in the future... eManu (547) - Kuala Lumpur & Brussels, BELGIUM - NOV 23, 2013
From a 33cl pours a straw color with a large white head that goes down fast leaving laces around the glass. Aroma of strong hops, citrus and malts. Taste of strong bitter hops, citrus, straw, bread and malts. Long bitterness in mouth, nice flavors. nothing too complex but still enjoyable. snoworsummer (5746) - baltimore, Maryland, USA - NOV 9, 2013
From a bottle. Pours hazy gold with a thin fizzy white head. Tastes like vegetables, caramel, grains, bread, malt. Low/medium body and carbonation. Smells like gourds, dough, yeast. Earthy and slightly sweet aroma. sonnycheeba (6126) - Federal Hill, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - NOV 9, 2013

Pours golden orange with a hazy appearance and white head. Aroma is subtle juicy orange citrus hops, a little sweet. Flavor brings juicy orange as well with a bitter of a floral perfumey ending, maybe a little too much perfume. Carbonation is spot on.
