Aroma is dominated by citrus - orange and grapefruit. Also some nice caramel malt aroma.
Color is a lightly cloudy amber. Head is small to average size and white. Lightly cloudy.
Taste is light to moderate sweetness; bitterness is moderate to heavy.
Body is medium; texture oily; carbonation average; finish is fairly long and bitter.
Overall I like the balance - while clearly an IPA with a strong citrus flavor, there is a fairly significant caramel malt presence. agl108 (1306) - Upper St. Clair, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 1, 2017
16 oz. can. Poured slightly hazy amber with fine particulate in suspension. Thick lacing. Caramel malt, pine needles. Lingering bitterness. Meh. This beer is easily lost in a world of great IPAs. n1940 (150) - Dunbar, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 3, 2017
12 oz bottle. Quiet pour with modest carbonation and a musty malt aroma with citrus notes. The beer is an attractive light amber hue with a rich white head and good lace. It has smooth malty start with citrus notes and dry hops expanding into the middle. The finish is long and smooth with a good hop-malt balance and lingering caramel notes. Good mouthfeel throughout! chucklemation (1762) - Royal Oak, Michigan, USA - AUG 8, 2016
Pours a copper with a foamy white head. Aroma is floral, skunk, and cardboard. Flavor is citrus and floral hops and cardboard. Why? Soft body and moderate bitterness. Meh. Hallstein (483) - Skogn, NORWAY - JUL 22, 2016
On tap at PF Steamers in Ludington, Mi. eeeeh, this was okay. Caramely, piny and dank. Slight breadcrust. Quite bitter. Very dank and resinous finish. Slight citrus.

On tap at PF Steamers in Ludington, Mi. Pours amber, slightly translucent, cream hued head that leaves a lot of lacing. Strong bitterness, pine, pretty dank. Medium body. Onslow (1527) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - APR 14, 2016
Pour from a one pint can, purchased at Horrock’s in Grand Rapids. Darker amber orange brew with an inch of dense and persistent head. Nice aroma dominated by a blend of resin and grapefruit but enhanced with other citrus notes, tart fruit and weak tropical fruit. Taste is tart fruit up front with moderate malt, with emerging resin and grapefruit towards the end. Malt present grows slightly and seems to balance out the hops as they build. A rock solid IPA with enough complexity and character to stand out a bit among other IPA’s. superspak (6000) - Waterford, Michigan, USA - JAN 16, 2016
16 ounce can into tulip glass, no can dating. Pours lightly hazy reddish copper color with a 2 finger dense and fluffy light khaki head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Nice dense soapy lacing clings around the glass. Aromas of big grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, peach, lemon zest, orange peel, citrus rind, pine, caramel, toasted bread, and floral/grassy earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of juicy citrus/tropical/piney hops and moderate dark/bready malt notes; with good strength. Taste of big grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, peach, lemon zest, orange peel, citrus rind, pine, caramel, toasted bready, and floral/grassy earthiness. Good amount of pine/citrus rind bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, peach, lemon/orange rind, pine, caramel, toasted bread, and floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a while. Very nice complexity, robustness, and balance of juicy citrus/tropical/piney hops and moderate dark/bready malt flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance and zero astringent hop flavors after the finish. Light-moderate dryness that increases through the glass. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, sticky/resinous, and fairly creamy/bready balanced mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a light warmth lingering after the finish. Overall this is a very nice IPA. All around good complexity, robustness, and balance of juicy citrus/tropical/piney hops and moderate dark/bready malt flavors; and very smooth and easy to drink for the ABV. A very enjoyable offering. rumproasts (6035) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - JAN 15, 2016
