This is one of my favorite IPAs. Rich caramel flavors with a crisp citrusy hoppy taste at the end. Not overly hoppy and not incredibly alcoholic. A great session IPA. DandyWolfFloyd (1253) - Jim Thorpe, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 29, 2014
Aroma - malt is somewhat muted under the resiny hops, you know this will be oily. The bark is bigger than the bite.
Appearance - is a nice orange body with a full blown white head. The head dissipates, but leaves an amazing lace. Full on stockings!!! Whaaaat!!!
Taste - the taste is a medium bitter, with a nice pine, some oil, and a dough malt.
Palate - the body is medium, the texture on the oily side, the finish sort of abrupt for an IPA with only a mild bitter wave. DialSquare (5185) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JAN 11, 2014
12oz bottle from Whole Foods in Greenville, SC. Copper-orange pour with a fluffy light tan head. Aroma of toasty malt, caramel, candy. Tastes on the sweet malty side also - with citrus and light pepper. Floral and slightly astringent in the finish. 6.0 AWISLguy (3419) - Wisconsin, USA - JAN 3, 2014
Bottle from Total Wine in Stuart. Pours a golden orange with a white head leaving some nice lacing. Aroma has heavy sour fruits, with citrus and toffee. Somewhat earthy. Taste is of grapefruit, lemon zest, crystal malts and some sour fruits. Medium bodied and dry. Finishes bitter with some sourness. No date on the bottle so hoping it is just old and not bad. Not a fan. MetalNHopHead (2257) - Lincoln, Nebraska, USA - DEC 30, 2013
UPDATED: OCT 19, 2015 It’s a good IPA, it just doesn’t seem all that original or different from what’s currently out there. Lots of good grapefruit flavor and a darker hue. That’ s about all that’s worth pointing out.

Very average IPA. It’s OK (except for some cardboard quality) but nothing distinguishing about it all. JFGrind (2074) - Glenside, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 22, 2013
Welcoming citrus aroma, amber medium bodied with sharp bitterness and caramel malt backbone. Textbook well built India Pale Ale. Travlr (26405) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - SEP 22, 2013
Bottle. Hazy golden amber color, medium white head. Aroma of citrus and pine. Taste is similar. rajendra82 (1109) - Alpharetta, Georgia, USA - SEP 19, 2013
The beer looked quite nice, with a clear, orange-amber body, and a large head. The smell was too mild for the style, with perfumey hops and toasted malts. The taste was quite bitter, with a metallic tang. There was caramel malt besides the hop bitterness, and not much else. The finish was very dry. The beer was among a mixed six pack of IPA’s I picked up at the store last week. I doubt I will go back for this one again very soon. It wasn’t bad, just not memorable.
