"Very floral, with an earthy aspect and a little spice. Less citrus and pine than the usual ipas/iipas, but I really dug this one. Went down easy for the abv and my nose kept returning to the glass."

Sampled on 8/7/2014. This India Pale Ale pours a slightly cloudy medium yellow orange gold color from a 22oz bottle. Medium sized white foamy head, with good retention and nice lacing. The aroma is floral, citrusy, with some orange, fruity and sweet. A medium bodied IPA. The malts are fruity and sweet. The hops are citrusy, orange and floral. Medium bitterness IPA, that lasts a good while in the aftertaste. Nice carbonation, lots and lots of small bubbles. Ann interesting hop, not sure if I have ever tried this one before. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and crisp. Aftertaste is bitter.

Floral, spicey, orange, pungent aromas. Pours cloudy yellow/orange with good frothy off white head. Dry, clean, soft, floral, tangerines, good mouthfeel. Good stuff at a even better price

A beautiful hop aroma just like if you were brewing comes from this cloudy pale orange brew with a small white head. For the taste I get fresh wert with an aftertaste of green. Maybe broccoli or peas in the pod. It is grassy I guess is the best way to put it. It’s light bodied and refreshing with a decent carb. Buy it. Worth it.

Tomato and onion, nose, lemon and orange accents. Cloudy amber, thick sticky head. Musty, dusty oak flavor. A bit vegetal. Rustic and only subtly fruity.

Bottle. Pours fairly clear light golden. Nose is floral and grassy. Taste is light with some dirt and stone fruit.. I need to try this again.

Bomber from whole foods, orange pour, small white head, smells bitter and of citrus, taste is bitter and hoppy, orange peels, nice.

Pours a straw color. I agree with my brother, has a weird vegetal thing going on with it. Lacked any hop or bitter complexity.
