Draught at Monroeville: Aroma of dish soap, grapefruit, and hops. Poured amber in color with a small, off-white head that diminished but lasted around the edges. Slightly hazy. Not sparkling. Flavor is lightly sweet and light to medium bitter. Tastes of hops, pine, grapefruit, caramel malts, and a hint of toasting. Medium body. Lightly dry texture. Soft to average carbonation. Hoppy, lightly sweet, lightly bitter finish is lightly dry. Cavie (4760) - Arlington, Texas, USA - FEB 1, 2011
Bottle courtesy thirdeye11. Pours a clear orange color with a light white head. Aroma of dry hops, and light grain. Sour flavor. Sour grain that finished quite roughly. Ouch callmemickey (4549) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 24, 2013
Hazy orange body, large off-white head, soapy lacing. Grapefruit, pine, too much biscuity malt. Medium bodied, appropriate carbonation, too sweet for my liking. Nate (4279) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 17, 2007
Draught sample at brewery. Medium amber reddish body with thin foamy lacing head. Starts with big juicy hops, fresh with grapefruit and resin. Good sweet malt with light caramel and biscuit. Finish is a big bitter chomp, dry, with a lasting bitter coating to the tongue. Medium body with medium carbonation. Floral hops nose with fresh grapefruit oil and resin. Really nice balance and goes down a bit too easily. Very nice IPA. It’s a refreshing step back from the IIPAs that are showing up more and more.

On tap at the brewpub. Pours a cloudy amber orange with a thick white head. Aroma of bready malt and floral hops. Flavor features more hoppy bitterness and bready malts. Good IPA, although it’s more like a pale ale.

12 oz can from trade with mdg164. Pours hazy copper color with off white head. Aroma of caramel malts, grapefruit, pine and some earthiness. Similar flavor with the malts coming through stronger than the hops. Medium body with average carbonation. Thanks Marc. umich03jm (3513) - Flat Rock, Michigan, USA - APR 28, 2014
Can thanks to DrSilverworm. Hazy light gold pour with a small head that fades to a very thin ring. Aroma is pretty malty for an IPA. Caramel and sugar cookies mostly with some citrus and floral hops. Taste is juicy sweet with not much bitterness to balance. Spicy and citrus hops are there to go with the caramel malt. Medium to full body and not much carbonation which hurts it I think. Not really my kinda IPA but certainly not bad. LinusStick (3484) - Moon Twp, suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 9, 2008
After taking in the weak aroma of stale hops and seeing the flat bubble-less orange pour, I thought I was going to be let down. Well as far as IPAs go, I was, but for this brewer and compared to the aroma it was great. Taste was light malt in the front with very little carbonation. The aftertaste, though, is when you are hit by hops so big you would think you were drinking an IIPA. Very nice finish. Would like to try this again. pineypower (3345) - Ocean County, New Jersey, USA - MAY 15, 2014
Pours out a somewhat clear coppery color with a decent off white head. Aroma is of citrus fruit, and floral hops, light sweet malty notes. Taste drops off a bit, some citrus rinds, light floral notes, sweet grains come through more predominantly than the hops in the taste. Pawola22 (3262) - Woodridge, Illinois, USA - MAR 25, 2010
On tap at Rivertowne. Pours a hazy, amberish burnt orange colored body with a finger-width, frothy, off-white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a moderate lacing. Aroma is some dense grapefruits and thicker caramels. A light cystal, floral, and pine. Flavor is better with a sweeter grapefruit pine and floral with a touch of candy. Balancing caramel and a light crystal before this finishes dry with a nice, moderate bitterness. Leaves a lengthy aftertaste after a medium body and light carbonation. Overall, a solid IPA. Nice bitterness and grapefruity pine with a solid caramel balance. Not bad.
