12 oz can pours a clear orange with a nice head. Aroma of grapefruit upfront. Tastes of citrus mostly, medium bitterness which surprised me, I expected more.. Quite refreshing actually.
Maybe a side by side with Founders Centennial. echudy (151) - Massachusetts, USA - APR 25, 2015
Really strong hop scent, and matching hop flavor. A bit of citrus mixed in with this bold one. Too bad it's a limited run as I'd like to come across it from time to time Ontape (471) - Valley Village, California, USA - APR 22, 2015
Draft in Chicago. A nice IPA, not totally West Coast-fuzzed-out but with some influence, I’d guess. Big pine and citrus hops but with a relatively light tough. Very drinkable. Two of you with a six at a pool on a hot day? Sounds great. geeklimit (294) - USA - APR 12, 2015
Pours a clear, yellow amber with lots of carbonation and a lather head. Pleasant and clean noble hops aroma. Clean malt taste with balanced noble hops flavor. Minimal stickiness in the mouth with a fresh hops aftertaste. tectactoe (3125) - Michigan, USA - APR 10, 2015
Can: Cloudy, orange-crusted amber color with a half-inch eggshell layer of foam on top. Aroma has notes of flowers, perfume, leaves, grapefruit rind, grassy hops, a touch of white pepper, buttered biscuit maltiness, maybe a very small hint of caramel. Reminds me of a more toned down Two Hearted, in a way. Flavor is balanced. Sugar crusted grapefruit, rose petals, perfume, a hint of pine, wet grass, & white pepper, a touch of tangerine peel. Finish shows a bigger malt presence; biscuits, toasted crackers, buttered bread, faint caramel, doesn’t get overly sweet, though, which is good. Musky, faded floral aftertaste. Nice stuff, really tasty.

Bottle from cwsample’s wife. Orange pour with a small white head. Aroma is dictatorship, sappy pine, and oranges. Taste is light grain, lots of caramel, and hoppy citrus. Mindwarp (323) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - APR 4, 2015
Pours a deep hazy golden color with a thick white head, lots of lacing on glass. Strong citrus/floral aroma. Nice hoppy bitterness at first taste but not overpowering and doesn’t linger long. Slight hint of citrus but not a lot. This is a really good IPA that I had a lot of a while back in Chicago and can be drank all day, and I mean all day. It was so good I had to bring back a 6pk because we can not get it here, too bad. BroSpud (2283) - , Massachusetts, USA - APR 2, 2015
12oz can. Pours a pale golden with a white head. Wow! This is a great IPA. Similar in style to a west coast IPA. Big citrus and pine hop notes. Very tasty. williamstome (2038) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAR 31, 2015
Gold pour, beautiful white head. Grassy hop aroma with pine notes,huge hop flavor of citrus, lime, honey, with big sweet doughy malt backbone. Smooth body, grassy finish. notalush (5955) - Lakewood, Colorado, USA - MAR 30, 2015
Tap in a hotel bar in Chicago - served in a chilled glass, which may impact the rating - a bit thin and weak in the malt.department - simple, strong sweetness - strong citric hops - bitterness is a little abrasive in the finish - overall middle of road.
