Tap on Bourbon Street. Hazy dull deep amber-tan-brown. Big foamy off-white head. Much more enjoyable than their Blonde or Wheat, this is a respectable medium to full bodied IPA. Middle of the road hop wise, pretty classic orange-pine hop taste. Standard but enjoyable.

Dacrza (961) - Great Meadows, New Jersey, USA - MAY 29, 2017
DATE: May 29th, 2017... OCCASION: Day two of the Quiz Bowl tournament, and we struggled against some strong competition... that calls for a strong beer...GLASSWARE: nondescript pint... brown amber body that releases little effervescence, but lifts dirty white head into arcs of lacing... medium-bodied, crunchy in the teeth, and formidable at 6.5%... chewy, worthwhile... on first sniff, mango and grapefruit combine with rye bread; thick and doughy, though the spicy hoppiness bites back... pepper, pine and resin in equal amounts--quite inviting... peach, mango and grapefruit make for a pleasant, worthwhile IPA that balances its bread malts in equal measure... love the name, having walked its somewhat altered street name twice now... a bit dry, as the glass drains...

16oz can. This one pours a cloudy, orange hued golden color. There was a small off white head that left minimal lacing. Lighter aroma. Some pine, citrus and earthy notes. The taste is good. Not much bitterness. Pine, citrus, earthy hops. Faint flavor of roasted malts. Good!

3.6
ajnepple (6428) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAR 23, 2017
Draft at the Ole Saint Kitchen & Tap. Light hazy, golden to orange appearance with a fluffy beige head. Aroma of piney hops, floral notes, zesty hops, light resin and light malts. Similar flavor, adding medium hop bitterness and a light grainy sweetness. Medium body with a clean feel and a smooth finish.

2.7
TBone (17440) - Pori, FINLAND - FEB 27, 2017
Tap at taproom. Clear orange color, small steady white head and lace. Light citrus in the nose. Medium-bodied. Some roped fruityness, some citrus. Quite watery and easy for its abv.

gripweed57 (2308) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - JUN 24, 2016
16 ounce can. Pours an amber orange color. Moderate foamy beige head. Big citrusy pine needle nose. Flavor offers more pine and citrus, but not overdone. Bittersweet toasted malt and grapefruit peel. Smooth as IPA’s go. Nice alternative to the standard fare around town in the Big Easy.
