Tap. Pours clear orange, small beige head, good lacing. Aroma of perfume, floral, pineapple pine needles, caramel. Flavor is light plus sweet, medium bitter. Lightish body, oily mouthfeel. alexsdad06 (10416) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 26, 2015
22 oz. bottle from notes. Pours a slightly hazy dark golden color with a medium sized off white head. The aroma was grassy and herbal with lighter citrus and toasted malts. The flavor had more citrus than the nose indicated, resinous character, grass, toasted malts, caramel, big enough malts, but lacks the bitterness pop I like in DIPAs, ok.

On tap at Brickhouse Tavern in Louisville. Very nice IPA. The alcohol was hidden well and a nice balance between malt and hops. radagast83 (8059) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - JUN 1, 2015
Growler at the DC Expanded Sour Tasting, shared by maniac, thanks! Poured an amber color with a small white head. Aroma was a balance of hop and malt character, no booze. Bitter hop notes. some light resin. Certainly masks the alcohol very well in this one. GenDV138 (7284) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - MAY 31, 2015

From a growler shared at Travlr’s sour beer tasting. Pours clear copper with an off white head. Flavors of caramel and citrus. Bitter finish. Advocate_Ames (626) - Steubenville, Ohio, USA - MAY 18, 2015
Pours a copper color with a blend of red and orange. The head has a nice retention and the foam sticks to my glass. The aroma is of crisp malts and has defined hop notes. The hops had citrus, minor spice, very resinous, and grassy scents. While tasting I picked up on sugary malted grains, a bitter bite, and booze. The body was medium and it had a good finish that did not linger too long. Nothing really stands out here. Its a good beverage but not one I’d search to have again.

Tasted on draft at 2015 St. Louis Microfest in a willi becher glass. It poured a clear orange amber colour with thin but persistent white foam and lace. Strong caramelly malt backbone supporting an even stronger hop load: grapefruit, black currant, black pepper, pine resin. Fruity. Tangy. Medium body and carbonation, well-rounded mouthfeel, lingering hoppy aftertaste. Good stuff in the West Coast IPA vein. Brentv (672) - Portland, Oregon, USA - FEB 12, 2015
From bomber. Pours a rich clear dark honey color with a thin dense foam head that hangs around and lots of lacing that clings to the glass. Aroma is subdued, with citrus floral notes. Taste is bitter, some citrus and floral. Medium oily mouthfeel. Bitter finish.
