Bottle at MMMBellos. Pours hazy golden orange with a white head. Fruity citric hops, lighter flowery notes, light sweetness, and hits of pine. Good stuff. douglas88 (9797) - Portland, Oregon, USA - FEB 18, 2014
12 ounce bottle thanks to Kyle. Pours a clear copper color with a medium white head. A light nose of lemons, some biscuit, a bit of marmalade. The flavor is medium bitterness, big oranges, toasted malts, almonds, Amarillo is pretty clear. Quite nice. arminjewell (9729) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - MAY 19, 2012
Pour out of 12 oz bottle is clear yellow-orange, pour is clear orange pour with white head, aroma brought notes of slight onion, nice pineapple, tropical fruit, hints of nice biscuit and vanilla. Taste is a nice mix of pineapple, grapefruit, orange, hints of vanilla, touch of biscuit and grain, finishing with some pine and bitter. Nice! bytemesis (9516) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - OCT 30, 2012
Tap. Wow, what a welcome improvement on their basic IPA! Pours clear amber with a medium white head that slowly dissipates with great lacing. Aroma is passionfruit and grapefruit, along with a bit of resin. Flavor is about the same, some sweetness balancing light bitterness into the finish. Body is on the light side, but otherwise an excellent beer. b3shine (9281) - Indiana, USA - JAN 23, 2014
Bottle to half-pint glass (shared with the Mrs.; thanks DrSilverworm). Best by 01/26/14. Looks good; a mostly transparent orange with white head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells solid; hoppy with a big pale malt backbone. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. A solid IPA.

4/10/13. 12oz bottle. Hazy orange pour with a creamy, pillowy off-white but bright head that fades to a film but coats the glass with lacing. Rich, ripe fruitiness in the aroma - light pit fruits, citrus, berries, tropical, and more - with a touch of dank hoppiness and pale and caramel malts. Lighter flavor than the aroma led on perhaps, but still plenty of mixed fruitiness with a touch of malt. Lingering bitterness and definite dryness. Not bad. nimbleprop (8949) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - DEC 10, 2013
12oz bottle thanks to Jake65. Pours a clear orange amber with some sudsy white head. Nose is balanced, malt, metal, soap, lemon, orange, apricot. Flavor is balanced as well, malty, honey, orange, pine, soap. Medium bodied. A well balanced, albeit simple, IPA. Very drinkable and the kind of beer you would order twice if it was your local.

12oz bottle courtesy of TheHOFF43 pours with a slightly hazy copper body that has gold edges and supports a dirty white head of foam. The modest aroma offers up thin notes of citrus and floral to spicy hops as well as a neutral sort of malty sweetness. The taste delivers an even mix of hop flavor and hop bitterness that’s a blend of grapefruit, floral and spicy hoppiness. Behind the modest hoppiness is a smooth subtle backbone of sweet malts. Interesting IPA that achieves a light hoppiness that grows on you the more you drink. PorterPounder (8364) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAR 8, 2013
Tallahassee, Fl - ABC Fine Wine & Spirits (Betton) - 12 oz bottle. Slightly sparkling medium golden pour, slightly thinnish with sticky white head that leaves bubbly lacing. Aroma has some light spruce notes, a bit of mango-like fruitiness. Flavor is refreshing with some light bittersweet citrus notes, some spearmint accents, and a touch of green tea. Mouthfeel is more thin than thick. Better than expected. jonas (8281) - Garching close to the monks, GERMANY - JUN 13, 2014
Golden, clear, white head.
Light aroma, but big American hop flavor, nice tropical notes.
