Cloudy golden color, a finger of white head. Lot’s of pine, citrus, flowers, biscuit background, a little earthiness. No alcohol, nice easy drinking. Ron (3962) - Rochester, New York, USA - JAN 23, 2014
Bottle from One Stop Brew Shop. The guy pulled it out of the secret place from under the counter! Pours clear golden orange with almost 2 finger head. Leaves a nice fine layer of suds and lace. Nose is piney, lemon, orange, some subtle grapefruit notes, tropical fruit. Mouthfeel is carbonated, malty. Taste is bitter grassy, pine up front, fruity grapefruit, notes on the end. Finish is fruity medium bitterness, balanced complexity. Lunch is a superbly balanced, expertly crafted IPA. Excellent. vandc01 (416) - North Branch, USA - JAN 19, 2014
Very solid beer. My bottle was past the "drink within 90 days", so am thinking that some of the overall score might be slightly higher had the bottle been less aged, but overall a very good beer. Bulk_Carrier (6065) - Vermont, USA - JAN 17, 2014
Reviewed from notes. Bottled on 6/25/12. Consumed 6/26/12.
Into a pint glass.
The appearance is a hazy brown colored body giving a half finger white head that lasted for at least a minute. Some slight bubbles were seen speckling the sides of my pint glass. There was barely any lacing.
The smell was based around the pine and citrus with the hops pushing forward for a great combination. I smelled the alcohol once the beer warmed.
The taste had a piney with a bitter hoppy edge and some citrus coming out in second place.
On the palate it held about a sort of medium-ness balanced body somewhat between a wet and dry, somewhat sessionable - I could see this going with its respected food.
Overall, this was a mostly impressive beer that I would definitely have again. dnstone (3418) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - JAN 12, 2014
Nice orange golden color. Dry hop pine aroma. Quite light and soft with dry pine hop strength...like many of the beers from here you thirst for another sip.

Pours light orange with a strong citrus and pine aroma. Very strong bitter fruit punch that finishes a little sweet.

Bottle @ home. Pours orange with a big white head. Aroma is earthy, citrus, pine, light malt. Flavor is mostly pine and citrus with some good malt background. Nice beer. sethdude (706) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - DEC 16, 2013
Pours golden orange with a massive rocky head and good lacing. Aroma is huge grapefruit and medicinal herbs (rosemary, echinacea). Flavor is massively fruit and floral on the start, big piney notes blend with rose hips, hibiscus. There’s a vitamin/herbal/medicinal second part to the flavor, again floral notes underlay fruit flavors, with just a bit of alcohol in there to balance it out. Very pleasant and bright, not overly-sweet. Thanks to Duffman for sharing!
