Bottle. This beer is a beautiful deep copper color. Pours with a thick 1 finger head. Clear with light lacing on the glass as I drink it down. Aroma smells of orange juice and grapefruit. A touch grassy, probably from dry hopped cascades. Not all that strong and a bit 1 sided. As the beer warms I can pick up some toasted malt. Flavor is nicely balanced between hop flavor, malt, and bitterness. I get mostly caramel flavor from the malt but there is a certain "richness" in the background that I really like. Finishes with enough bitterness to clear the palate for the next sip while still being very drinkable. This is a really solid IPA. A bit maltier than a "west coast IPA so I probably wont look for this much in the summer.

kassner (1553) - Wexford, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 25, 2016
six pack from Whole foods. I especially like the style with a lot of malt character and this has it. Frothy head and rich amber color. good body for an IPA and enough hops to satisfy

HoppyScallywag (309) - Butler, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 4, 2016
Nice floral, hop aroma. Subtle malts and hoppy goodness on the initial taste with the dry hops finishing it off. Borderline too dry of a hop but still really good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: MAR 19, 2016 Bottle. Very hoppy and pine like aroma. Tastes of hop, citrus and 2x4. Not the greatest IPA but its not the worst.

crossovert (11608) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 25, 2015
355ml bottle. Gold pour, foamy head. Amells pretty nice actually a departure form the other crap this brewery puts out. Citrus and a hint of toasted caramel malt. Flavor is earthy caramel malt and a good hop presence. This is okay, whatever.

12 oz. bottle courtesy of phaleslu. Pours a clear orange amber color with a large fluffy off white head. The aroma has some resiny and grapefruit citrus hop character. The flavor has resin and earthy hops, less grapefruit citrus but its there, gets a bit thin and watery, caramel, mild bitterness, this one is just ok.

Bottle. Pours clear light amber. Aroma is caramel and bready malts, stone fruit, and faint floral notes. Flavor is dry and somewhat simple with late bitterness and faint citrus along with a touch of sweetness in the finish. Medium body.
