Bottle. Slightly hazy reddish brown with a big creamy head and a sweet, resiny aroma. Doughy malt taste with a floral hop bitterness. Medium bodied and a bit slick on the palate with a very light carbonation. Short, bitter finish that wraps this one up nicely. Very good. Ratman197 (14852) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - SEP 23, 2012
Bottle poured aclear orange amber with a lasting creamy amber head. Aromas of bread, earthiness and light citrus. Palate was light bodied and crisp with a smooth finish. Flavors of bread and earthiness with a smooth earthy finish. Strykzone (7363) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - AUG 6, 2012
12 ounce bottle bought near Detroit. Clear coppery with a white head. This has a caramel nose with pine and floral hop notes. Sweetness is high. First sip is tasty. A nice little hop bite with plenty of caramel malt. Citrus hops with floral. A hint of cinnamon is a nice touch. I like this beer. It is not really complex but is tasty.

Single bottle from Binny’s Build-a-Six rack. Nice copper IPA color with a thick, slightly orange-ish head. Slightly citrus and pine hop smell. Taste is up front with hop bitterness.After a thousand IPAs, it gets hard to say what makes one different from the other, but this does have a slightly larger malt backing, even if it does support a pretty standard hop balance. But as a year-round beer, you can’t expect too many non-repeatable variations. wlajwl (6814) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - AUG 1, 2012
UPDATED: JUN 18, 2014 Aroma is pine, citrus and sugar/malts. The flavor is grapefruit, berries, citrus, bready malts and a bitter finish.

Amber body with a small white head. The aroma is all malt, lots of caramel, toffee, and buscuit. There is just a hint of floral hops. The flavor is similar, mostly sweet. I assume this is somewhat old, should probably rate again. Dragonfly1 (500) - Colorado, USA - JUL 13, 2012
Bottle. Aroma is odd, a pesto/pine nut/marinara sauce. Taste is more pine nut, then a metallic harsh bitterness, and a hint of sourness in the finish. The finish was close to a fermented tangy greek yogurt. Ok, this was a drain pour for me. Hated to do it, but this was just a mess. kbutler1 (1381) - North Carolina, USA - JUL 4, 2012
Draft. Pours a copper orange color with a light tan head. Slight hop aroma but nothing extreme. Medium mouthfeel. Caramel seed upfront with a hoppy presence in the end. Hoops don’t "bite" but rather are a slow build in the end. It’s ok, nothing special. Some lace. A bit soap flavor. jkwood04 (5448) - Connecticut, USA - JUN 4, 2012
Sampled at the 2012 American Craft Beer Festival. A good amount of citrusy and floral hops from this IPA. Frank (4195) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 7, 2012
This is a nice IPA that tastes and drinks pretty good but doesn’t have anything particularly compelling going on in the aroma. The texture is a high point, nice and creamy w/ gentle carbonation. Overall, it’s forgettable but I’d say it’s better than most forgettable beers.
