Bottle. It pours a deep golden copper color with a small off white head. The aroma is caramel, apple and a little toffee. The flavor has some sweet apple, toffee and a touch of baked bread. It has a decent spicy, bitter finish. To much caramel malt and not enough finishing hops for me. A decent beer though. JaBier (8396) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - APR 18, 2012
Bottle purchased at Party Source. Pours clear amber with a medium beige head. Aroma of crystal and pale malts with some piney and grassy hops. Flavor of caramel malt with a bit of tartness before a grassy and bready finish. BVery (11458) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - APR 9, 2012
UPDATED: JAN 1, 2014 Bottle - thanks Greg! Nice rich amber/orange pour with a white head. A bit of rye in the nose, along with some grassy hops. Moderate palate. Taste is quite enjoyable - good hop crispness with grass and a touch of caramel. Evolutionary (539) - Ohio, USA - APR 8, 2012
Bottle from Ty. Hoppy smell and nice medium amber color. Mad hop taste but pretty unbalanced with limited
Malt and Sugar. Decent mouthfeel but the unbalanced hops makes for an average attempt at a hoppy ipa.

Pours a wet copper-amber, with tan head.
Scent is caramel,spicy hops.
Taste is, of course, hoppy,caramel....a slight chocolate twist. Rye.
A flat sort of hop bitter, not exactly a "bomb" by any means.
Pretty decent, though.
A "bit" over-hyped in the description....

At the 2012 East Nashville Beer Festival. Brownish copper, not much head. Smells grassy, and a whiff of chocolate. Hoppy flavors up front, then some toasty malty notes. Sticky, piney finish. steelhead3686 (269) - Jacksonville, North Carolina, USA - MAR 30, 2012
Pours a dark wheat or copper color and is somewhat cloudy with a large white head. It has a light hops aroma with a hint of spice and malt. Medium to heavy bitter taste with the faintest hint of sweet. A light body with a slightly sticky/thick texture and a medium bitter finish that sits in you mouth. This is a decent IPA. I would not pay bar price for it, due to its bitterness and texture. Also, it is a bit lacking in body for my taste when it comes to IPAs. screigh (773) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - MAR 19, 2012
Pours a clear copper/brown color. Head went away quick but left a film that did leave behind some lacing. Aroma is earthy. Taste reminds me more of a brown ale than a pale. Malty with barely enough bitterness. BelgianBeerGal (4246) - Panama City, Florida, USA - MAR 4, 2012
Bottled at Dayton Ale Feast. Overall: kinda thin and forgettable. A little bold calling 60 IBUs a hop bomb. It falls short of being a hop head’s dream. olsonerr (90) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 19, 2012
Decent aroma, but nothing jumping out. The body is a little heavier than I’d expect, but not unpleasantly so. Tastes of malt and citrus hops, but without much balance. Nothing on the finish. Relatively unmemorable version of the style.
