On tap at Top of the Hill. Golden colored with a citrusy aroma. The taste was full of hop, but felt very thin - there was virutally no malt there to provide any balance. I have to say I was disappointed with this one.
Draft at the source. Clear amber color, small white head. Grassy aroma. taste is lightly medicinal. ilovedarkbeer (2741) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - DEC 2, 2013
Pours a reddish color with an off white head. Watery malt, caramel, faint pink/orange citrus, and a little dust. maxwelldeux (4374) - Snohomish, Washington, USA - MAY 24, 2013
Draught in a flight. Pours a reddish amber color with almost no head. Nose is hoppy, but it smells like the hops have turned on it. Taste is similar, in that the hops taste old and no longer fresh. Not a fan. DedicatedToFun (4000) - Santa Monica, California, USA - DEC 28, 2012
Average in wvery way, amazing bar at top o but not bitter enough to compete with anything beernovice39 (3270) - Idaho, USA - SEP 30, 2012

UPDATED: JUN 9, 2012 A: Nice medium-amber body. Large creamy egg-shell white head. Good retention and some spotty lacing left down the sides. Quite a bit of carbonation flying up from the bottom. Some floaties.
S: Grassy and floral hops. Quite a bit of caramel malts are present here.
T: Again, some grassy and floral hops are upfront. Only the slightest hints of citrus. Mostly malt, but not particularly rich or complex. Somewhat grainy.
M: Lighter bodied and somewhat thin in places. The finish is a bit muted and not particularly crisp or bitter.
O: A decent brew. But not something I am likely to seek out in the future. jtd6628 (362) - North Carolina, USA - JUL 24, 2011
Ok beer. This IPA is nicely done. It has a light bitterness taste paired with citrus. anders37 (26605) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JUL 7, 2011
Draft @ Hickory Hops 2011, Hickory, NC. Pours a clear amber color with a small off-white head. Has a fruity floral hoppy citrus aroma. Fruity malty hoppy caramel flavor with hints of citrus. Has a fruity malty hoppy bitter finish. craftycarl21 (2338) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAR 19, 2011
Amber pour, small head. Aroma smells of metal, diacetyl, and oxidization-like caramel. Flavor is all the same; really pretty terrible. I actually sent this bad because there was no hop character whatsoever and I thought it must have been a bad batch or something, but I tried a taste on the way out after my waitress said the brewer had been in and tried it and there was nothing wrong with it. Well, I guess there was nothing wrong with it, other than it being a really bad IPA.
