Way too sweet for me. Not enough bitter to balance. Remove this hop, get something different in lat 48. Leighton (21083) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 11, 2014
Bottle at home in CT - picked up at Stateline, pours clear copper with a creamy, off-white head. The nose has ripe melon, orange, some pine. Medium sweet flavor with crackers, lightly toasted malts, some dry caramel, ripe orange, citrus rind, light leafy and piney bitterness. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Finishes with sweet, bready malts, a bit more caramelisation of the malts, mild pine bitterness, some earth, alcohol, orange rind, grass. Not bad but perhaps a little faded. 5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - SEP 6, 2014
Bottle:   Soft sweet citrus pith and peel, a touch of sweet tobacco.   Moderately sweet, make that fairly sweet.   Low bitterness.   Soft pith and peel linger.   Very light bitterness.   Smooth and easy drinking. andrewje41 (3741) - Kenmore, Washington, USA - SEP 3, 2014
Draft pour at special brews. Pours a copper color with no head really. Kind of a tropical aroma with some malt. Sweet malty flavor with a bitter hop finish that is a little overpowering. Decent IPA here, but not a real standout. williamherbert (1541) - Syracuse, New York, USA - SEP 3, 2014
Copper in color, very clear. The head almost completely disappears, but it gives a frosty reminder of its presence on the side of the glass.
The aroma is bread crust, touch if spicy rye. Hops are resinous, but dry, like an oak table; sawdust? It’s overtly woody, but like older, carved wood. Stained wood.
The flavor is more stained oak; rye bread spices. Touches of soil-covered oranges and earthy tangerines.
Creamy feeling, a little prickly. It’s a very solid pale ale; this might have been an above-the-line IPA about 8 years ago, and just because it’s at-the-line now doesn’t mean it’s a lesser beer.

Pours a dark rust orange with thick white head. Has a faint citrus hop aroma. Taste is almost like sour citrus with hops, malts and grains. A very dry malty and bitter hop aftertaste nike (966) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 21, 2014
12oz bottle, decent amount of hops, balanced hop flavor (not real strong)with some fruit, grapefruit taste.
