3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottled from Miked. Pours copper amber with a dissipating ivory head. Aroma of floral hops and caramelly pale malts. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Somewhat complex malt backbone of caramel, chocolate, and toasty malts, nicely countered by the juicy citra hops. Bitter finish with resin at the very end. Very nice IPA, especially if you like malty IPA. West Coast in bitterness, but East Coast for maltiness.
Had on draft at Buffalo Wild Wings in Cleveland. Very good IPA with a nice initial scent, nice golden color, very nice IPA taste, a bit of an aftertaste but not too strong. Overall a nice IPA

Bottle at CMH Hilton. Mild pleasant citrus aroma. Slightly hazy dark golden color, with white head, great lacing. Flavor is very well balanced, nice malt offsetting a smooth bitterness, a little citrus, touch of pine. Med body. Overall, a very nice IPA.

Aromas of orangey citrus, floral. Mostly clear orange with a fairly white head. Dry, citrusy. Medium bodied. ContemplateBeer (2089) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JUN 1, 2017
12 oz. bottle from Jungle Jims without a bottle date, so hoping this is reasonably fresh. Aroma: Moderate to strong clementine peel with hints of pine and/or herbaceous hop character; malts are very light, semi-sweet cereal. Appearance: Transparent honey gold with slow, plentiful carbonation holding up sticky tan head that settles into a sticky skin. Flavor: Big citrus with herbaceous notes that are not negligible; malts are minimized with only a whisper of sweetness that dies away quickly; pretty bitter and dried up in the finish. Palate: Medium body, sticky texture, lively carbonation, bitter finish. Overall: Definitely an exemplary, standout IPA. Probably not something Id drink everyday, but ideal for hopheads, and that occasional hop fix for the rest of us. commonshawn (1311) - Minnesota, USA - MAY 5, 2017
Bottle in Cleveland. Hazy dark yellow with small white head and good lacing. Packs a big citrus punch, with plenty of hop bitterness. Well balanced. Feels like a west coast ipa. Good .

Straw yellow color with a white soapy head. Aroma of pineapple, orange, and passion fruit. Tropical fruit flavor with some biscuit and slight bitterness. Very flavorful and well-balanced. ganache (6031) - New Jersey, USA - AUG 25, 2016
Bottle. Nose obviously dry and resinous, lots of pith and tropical citrus peel. Pour rich golden-orange, opaque with a short soapy beige head. Taste is strongly bitter but not excessively so, caramel is strong but dulled, more like biscuit/dough, but citrus is bright and shimmers around the edges. Pine and this wonderful tropical musk, not the more known like mango, but a bit leafier. Pilsner-like malt underneath (tad grainy) but it’s clear the the malt has mostly been abandoned. Clean full body crisp and refreshing, bright. Enjoyed this one, but have to admit to disappointment given the surprise hype. [2016.08.25: 3.4] jcr (2726) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - AUG 17, 2016

It finishes lightly sweet and moderately bitter. Medium body, velvety texture and lively carbonation. Fluffy mouthfeel. Inviting nose. Nice balance between citrus and resin. Clean.

Slightly hazy orange amber with a decent tightly bubbled off white head that persists. citrus and tropical with plenty of pine and a bit of biscuity malt to counter. Pretty tasty.
