Aroma of citrus and pine. Decent hop presence, bitter, mostly citrus in the taste. By far Pub Dog’s best offering.

Light amber pour with a white head. Hop aroma that’s floral and sweaty. Flavor has a little caramel maltiness with lots of hop bitterness and some sweatiness.

radio_nowhere (1472) - Maryland, USA - MAY 30, 2015
Draft sample at MD Craft Beer Fest, hazy orangy-golden color with off-white head. Aroma notes of pine/citrus hops, grainy malt sweetness and light spices. Taste adds some pepper, herbal notes, caramel and grapefruity/floral bitterness. Medium body, moderate carbonation, sticky, dry with lingering pine/grapefruit bitterness. On the rough side of hops but nice enough simple IPA.

dliberto (217) - Hampstead, Maryland, USA - AUG 15, 2014
Drank from the bottle. Aroma is mango, pine, resin, and malt. Taste is citrus, pine, and caramel malts. Thin beer ( watered down thin) with moderate carbonation and a slight sticky mouth feel and a nice bitter aftertaste. Would be better if it had more body to it.

On tap 4 oz. sampler at Dan's Restaurant and Taproom in Boonsboro , MD. Lightly hazy, straw color with a small, fine off-white head and good lacing. Aroma of grain, rye (!?), floral hops, pine and leaf mould. Taste of spicy floral hops, hot pepper (where did THAT come from?), mild citric/ piney hops and caramel. Medium/light body and medium carbonation. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
