Opened 6.5 weeks after bottled. Citrus aroma carries through to palate with forward, grapefruit-like hops. Quite a refreshing IPA. Matt_Foran (102) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - APR 30, 2015
Very hoppy aroma with subtle malt sweetness. Taste is a lot of bitterness from hops and subtle maltiness on the back end. Hops last long on the palate, but nice! jonas (8035) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - APR 27, 2015
Bottle. Fresh leafy and citric hop aroma
Hazy amber, low offwhite head
Medium light body, light stickiness, wonderfull green hops though, really pleasant. rondphoto (4494) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - APR 25, 2015
on tap @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Clear bright dark amber, frothy white head, messy cobwebs of lace. Taste is solid malt that yields partially to a combination citrus/pine hop presence on the swallow, the bitter dominating, but never able to overcome the malt. The finish becomes sweeter as it fades. A very nice strong IPA.

Cask at taproom. Pours orange with a thin white head. Some dank hop notes on the nose. Has some leafy hoppiness on the tongue. It’s quaffable and finishes clean but it’s not spectacular to me. kaser (6378) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 22, 2015
Huge bubblegum, citrus, tropical, fruity, pine and hoppy taste. Delicious. Orange pour from 12oz bottle at red door. Sweet and underwhelming aroma. Taste makes it all CanIHave4Beers (4224) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - APR 22, 2015

Pours a hazy light golden with some good head and nice lacing on the glass.
The aroma is fruity with some hop character but a surprising husky malt thing going on. All together it come across as pretty faint as well.
The flavor is a touch sweet, the hop profile is nice with some good punchy grapefruit and piney hops. The bitterness is at a moderate level but balances the beer appropriately.
I’ve had this before & it’s been brilliant, although I never took notes. This batch falls short of my prior experience and expectations I’m afraid.
An absolutely incredible ipa. Hoppy, citrus and grapefruit dominate. Smells hoppy and goes down like butter. Crushable. Just had after a rajah and this may be a better beer. Got from the brewer when visiting arcade brewing.

Bottle. Golden, hazy, average and mostly diminishing head. Moderate to full, malty and lightly sweetish aroma, light caramel and some tropical fruitiness, piney - some grapefruit hoppyness. Body is medium to full, malty and lightly sweetish flavor, light caramel and tropical fruitiness, piney/grapefruit hoppyness. Finish is average to long, malty and dryish - lightly sweetish, faint caramel and light tropical fruitiness, lots of piney - some grapefruit hoppyness, light alcohol. OK well hopped IPA. Could be drier with less (or without) caramel. Bit too much alcohol in the finish.
