Stole from roomate. Can. Pours hazy ipa orange with little head to speak of. Aroma is peachy, fruity, piney, light citrus. Great nose. Tastes like it might be old. Says best by 11/ 14 its only 9/14 and tastes like it might have lost flavor. Well carbonated medium bodied beer. Grass and pine notes and a bitter end. I want to try a fresh one next time. Still a good beer. phaleslu (10247) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 16, 2014
12 oz. can from Errl. Didn’t see it in the box initially. Thanks, Chris! Unfortunately, we used this one as a sacrificial lamb - a palate cleanser after Stone Crime and Punishment, among other big, crazy beers. Pours a pale bright gold with a white head. Light-bodied with medium carbonation and a mouthfeel that is both dank from fresh hops and dry from the base. Notes of herbs, grass, straw, pale malts, citrus and spice. But if I were to describe this in one line, it would be: like a typical golden/blond ale with hop pellets chucked in. That’s what separates my opinion from DrSilverworm’s on this - I wouldn’t call it an IPA because the base and late hop addition are so clearly separate. Interesting beer.

12oz can, thanks to phaleslu for sharing. Best by December 10, 2014. Clear golden orange color. Thin off-white head. Dots and bits of lace. Good grassy zesty hoppy aroma. Some grapefruit, pine. Bigger bitter taste. Light sweet. Pretty nice golden IPA. Golden ale? This is an IPA.. musinj6 (506) - Dedham, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 10, 2014

Refrigerated 12 oz. aluminum can drink before september 5, 2014 date, from blutt59, poured into a snifter. Aroma is big citrus, medium body, medium carbonation, and little big bubble lacing. Taste is tropical fruit, grapefruit, some herbal hop backing. Back to back with sculpin, not necessarily worse than sculpin, just different. Not sure if its a golden ale, but it is an awesome IPA. Nice surprise blutt59!

Surprisingly big citrus, piney hop aroma... Light golden color... Light and crisp mouthfeel... Light bready malts with nice floral and piney hop balance... Solid golden ale, nice take on it

Can pour medium gold. Nose some fruit hop, sweet, and crystal malt. Taste light crisp up front, Mild bitter, more sweet Mid palate. Minial finish. Lighter all around. Don’t get much from the dynamic hop, except a little on the nose. dmac (6262) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - JUL 31, 2014
12oz can via trade with HeffIAm, thanks Jeff. Poured a nice looking medium density bronze body under a smaller to average dense foamy white head. Aroma is juicy citrus, honey sweetness, caramel malts, dough, orange and tangerine, lime, hop resin. Average body, dry finish, average carbonation. Flavor is the same as the aroma with a touch more grain and toast. Great beer. ryanscourt (1473) - Latrobe, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 27, 2014
Citrus hop aroma. Straw and grainy flavors followed by sweet flavors. Interesting but enjoyable. OVer 7% for a blonde ale is unique.
