Dark Hazy Orange with a foamy but small head and good lacing. Aroma is quite citrusy with a hint of caramel and hops. Flavor is orange, citrus hops, caramel, malts and yeasts. Aftertaste is a bitter citrus hop finish. Body is moderately weighted and carbonated. A lighter IPA but a good one nonetheless

A pleasant citrus hop aroma. Flavor has a light biscuit flavor balanced by a moderate hop bite. The aftertaste is a bit fruity and unique. What a nice, well balanced beer. A refreshing beer to enjoy on a hot day.

Sperine (283) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 4, 2013
On tap at Capone's in Norristown, PA. Good on them for releasing an organic beer, but I think I prefer my beers to be a bit more flavorful, even if it isn't as humane.

Pours a lightly hazy golden amber with a large creamy white head. Aroma of citrusy, floral and piney hops with a touch of caramel malt an Cheerios. Flavor of pine, orange and floral notes. Nice rounded malt profile and hop bitterness is there but very restrained.

JFGrind (2038) - Glenside, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 27, 2013
UPDATED: APR 28, 2013 Wasnt sure what style to peg this beer. Seemed like a hybrid between a Brown & Pale Ale. Copper color medium bodied, generously hopped, with a grainy malt backbone. Decent beer and organic to boot.

On tap. Comes a cloudy amber with a nice off-white head. Aroma of citrus, malt, and grain. Taste is caramel malt, grapefruit, rye, and spice. Nice session beer.

heemer77 (5351) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - APR 25, 2013
A nice copper colored body out of the bottle with a light khaki head. A nose of sweet cereal grains and grapefruit. There is also some light caramel. The taste is fairly bitter grapefruit and toast. There is some almond and a little bit of tobacco. A decent APA type beer. Nicely done.

crowderm (382) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - APR 8, 2013
Dark copper pour. A lot hoppier than I was expecting. Aroma is mostly floral, with a little bit of citrus. The biscuity malt character is a little too pronounced in the flavor for my liking, but still tastes good. Nice beer.
