Bottle, shared by me... in my dining room... just now.
Pours kind of an orange color with a big fluffy off white head and lots of lacing on the glass.

The aroma has a bit of citrus, melon, and clean socks. The malt character is lightly caramely.

The flavor is very grassy with a touch of minerallity. The malt really doesn’t come through as a pleasant note here, sort of flabby and a touch sweet & caramelly. The hops are certainly the dominant character of the beer & there is that nice low bitterness that’s the hallmark of the style. But the hop character seems one noted and not very bright at all...

The beer is a touch on the thin side without much prickly carbonation to carry it well across the palate.

Cool bottle though!

Draft at the Sybarite Pig in Boca Raton, FL. Snifter pour was yellowish-orange with a one finger fluffy white head. Head lasted and laced. Aroma of cereal, pine, citrus, grass and hay. The taste was more muted and was grass, weeds, hay, cereal, and pine. Bitter, mildewed finish. Light drinking and medium carb.

amber, sparkling, cloudy, frothy, minimal head, white foam. bread, cereal, herbs, grass, leaves aromas (I know... it sounds off, but that’s what I’m getting). light sweetness, medium bitterness, lightly sour.medium body, thin feel, oily feel, average carbonation, bitter finish. I think the idea of a session IPA is always hilarious. Generic, but efficient artwork. Great bottle look.

ColovianTrader (464) - - APR 20, 2014
Orange and grapefruit peel, pine, light caramel and hints of nuts and brown sugar. Dry finish. Thin feel and a slight artificial sweetness hurt an otherwise good brew. Still not too shabby.

3.5
joet (2664) - Wilsonville, Oregon, USA - APR 12, 2014
Deep orangey bronze, thin layer of off white foam. Rindy citrus aromas and deep caramel notes.Soft touches of pine and phenols in the medicinal range. Spritzy in feel with melon sweetness. Finishes bitter. Backed down in CO2 this might get more English in character. Might be interesting on cask. Still interesting as it is.
