Pours an orange amber color thats slightly cloudy in the glass. Aroma is a really great citrus & pine aroma. Flavor is a fairly straightforward citrus bitterness with a touch of mint mixed in. Overall its a nice sipping IPA with some decent flavor and gorgeous bouquet.

The beer pours an amber orange color with good head retention and lacing. Smell is light citrus and with a h hint of earthiness. Taste follows the nose. Very lightly malted. Overriding dimension is a dry hoppiness with some pepper, earthiness and light wet tobacco. Mouthfeel is medium bodied and drinkability is average. Its dryness had me ready for another style after just one beer. A solid IPA. More in the English style.

Draft at IBG (Lutz, FL). Pours a clear copper amber color with a beige head. This is a good IPA with a nice balance between the hops and malt. Good bitterness in the finish. The 7.2% is just the right amount for and IPA.

riversideAK (6260) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - SEP 13, 2010
Drank this at some shit ass bar in Richmond, VA called City Limits. It was in a shopping center, there were a shit ton of dykes in there. My buddy was blacked out and hitting on them not realizing this. It was fun and interesting. Somewhat floral and herbal nose, light caramel and iced tea notes. Reminded me of a PNW IPA with less robust hopping. Pours amber, rather well filtered with not much head or lace. Flavors of caramel, iced tea, floral earthy hops and light citrus. Not overly assertive or interesting but nothing wrong with it really. It just did not do it for me really.

Mad Hatter, DC tap ($6): Pours a very nice light amber color with a straight up white head that lasts for quite a while (think it is because it was on draught). Aroma is of piny and floral hops. At first, the main thing that I got out of this beer was a lot of piny hops. Moderate bitterness. Not overkill. Then as it warmed up the citrus flavors became a little bit more apparent. Quite enjoyable
