Draft. Clear golden amber color, white head. Aroma of mixed citrus. taste is bitter orange and lemon. Tasty. nearbeer (5795) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 14, 2016
Growler. Lightly hazy, orange-amber with a big spongy head. Nose is resin, toasted nut, caramel and orange zest. Flavor is the same mix. Light-medium body has a nice balance and a mild astringency that helps sweep the crystal malt. Good but the nutty taste is a little off (with hints of popcorn) and keeps this one from going to the next level for me. MadRobin (2991) - Silver Spring, Maryland, USA - JUL 12, 2016

Light amber color with modest light beige head. Notes of pine and citrus in the nose. Very smooth feel. Light sweetness in the front with some pale and crystal malts. Citrus and light pine in the middle. Finish is soft and draws one back. Thanks Eric for the growler. 8/10 snoworsummer (6604) - baltimore, Maryland, USA - FEB 20, 2016

Bottle. Pours . Aroma is floral and citrusy hops, toasted and caramel malts, and some grassiness. Flavor is rich hop profile with nice citrusy bite, faint caramel notes, and light spice. Medium body. chinchill (5548) - South Carolina, USA - JAN 7, 2016
12 oz bottle served in a lager glass.
Pours clear amber with a moderate amount of visible carbonation. A thin coat of sediment remained bonded to the bottom of the bottle and the limited clarity of the body suggests an unfiltered beer. The white head was medium sized with excellent retention and exemplary lacing.
The name led me to think this was a "session IPA" but at 6% this may not be your best noon day choice on some days. The undiminished hop load with no less than average malts for style also suggested a regular IPA. Speaking of the malts, their sweetness kicks in nicely by mid -taste, just as the bitterness is exploding, to keep it at a moderate level overall and actually nicely mild in the aftertaste. Plenty of hop complexity here but mainly of the citrus variety. The aroma feature lemons and grapefruit.
Very good mouthfeel. DialSquare (5234) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - DEC 25, 2015
